Review: River Marked by Patricia Briggs

Released: March 1, 2011
Publisher: Ace Books
Rated: Adult

Car mechanic Mercy Thompson has always known there was something different about her, and not just the way she can make a VW engine sit up and beg. Mercy is a shapeshifter, a talent she inherited from her long-gone father. She's never known any others of her kind. Until now.

An evil is stirring in the depths of the Columbia River-one that her father's people may know something about. And to have any hope of surviving, Mercy and her mate, the Alpha werewolf Adam, will need their help...

What I thought:

I have yet to come across a Mercy book I haven't loved! Each seem so different that it is like starting a new story all over again. Each theme different. I loved that in this book we get to see more insight into Mercy's heritage and what that means exactly.

I would have loved to see Bran a bit more in this, but you know, it isn't his book. But I'd just like to reiterate just how much I love Bran. But, I love Mercy and Adam too, so I was very happy to read about the both of them and their shenanigans.

The story was great. We've dealt previously with a lot of bad guys, but none quite like this. And the help along the way was unexpected, but I loved it. I loved the idea behind it and the symbolism. This book is definitely another keeper. I can't wait for another, the ending left some promising openings for another great book!

I so have to move this series up on my list! Great review! This might be the next series I start after wrapping up the ones I'm reading now.

Oh Lori! How have you not read this series yet? Adam is just delicious! It is UF though, so no steamy scenes. But it does have great storylines.
