"Expect to be spellbound"* by Patricia Briggs's #1 New York Times bestselling series starring Mercy Thompson. Being a lowly "walker" in a world of vampires, werewolves, and fae once kept her safe. But Mercy's bark--and bite--are not so harmless any more...

Though Mercy can shift her shape into that of a coyote, her loyalty never wavers. So when her former boss and mentor, Zee, asks for her help, she's there for him. A series of murders has rocked a fae reservation, and Zee needs her unique gifts, namely her coyote sense of smell, to sniff out the killer. But when Zee is accused of murdering the suspect Mercy outed, he's left to rot behind bars by his own kind. Now it's up to Mercy to clear his name, whether he wants her to or not. Mercy's loyalty is under pressure from other directions, too. Werewolves are not known for their patience, and if Mercy can't decide between the two she cares for, Sam and Adam may make the choice for her...

I loved this - I read it on the heels of Blood Bound and enjoyed the switch of focus from the vampire to the fae. There are some dark moments in this book that I think Briggs handled quite well without being explicit at all (an interesting choice in the PN genre where explicitness is usually revelled in). Mercy continues to make considered, if not smart, decisions in order to support and protect those she is loyal too. She takes responsibility for those choices too which is admirable. I also appreciated a little more depth to Adam in this book - less of the "Me Alpha" and more "I would do anything for you." While Adam is definately Alpha, he is not the mysogynist that is expected which he proves in his willingness to support but not control Mercy. The mix of fae and vampire was interesting and I enjoyed the storyline, poor Stefan. The ending was suprising, not for what happened, but how it was written and where it was left - I certainly couldn't resist starting Bone Crossed as soon as I finished the last more

This book continues the adventures of Mercedes Thompson "Mercy", a mechanic and a coyote shapeshifter. Here she makes a choice between her two men, er, werewolves, I mean. Battles evil and not so evil forces where friends seems to become enemies and enemies are allies after all. Mercy's friend, Zee, who is a fae, is arrested by human police for murder. Mercy is trying to help Zee get cleared of the charges and keep him from getting killed by the Gray Lords (fae ruling body) as a sacrifice to keep the fae secrets from the rest of the world. Still a very good read... but compared to Moon Called and Blood Bound, it is not as good as the previous two. Maybe I was expecting too much... or I was just spoiled by the good quality of the previous books... and also, I did not appreciate the dark turn of the story... but I have to say the story-telling quality is still a more

Mercedes is a trouble magnet. Still under vampires radars for killing one them, Mercy gets her nose in fae business 'cause she owes a favor to Zee, fae, friend and ex-boss. She's summoned to the fae reservation to investigate a series of murders, but warned that seeing to much would be dangerous. What happens next? Mercy sees too much! She identified the murderer but it gets Zee into deep trouble and Mercedes will do everything she can to get him help. I'm really in love with that series and even if it was just for Mercy's attitude it would be worth reading the series, but of course there's much more then that! In that book Mercy will finally pull her love life together and make a pick, which is great, I've been holding my breath to know who she would finally end up with! We also get to see some of her weaker sides which is hard to bear at some point, makes her as real as it gets. When I started reading the series the titles didn't quite make sense but now that I can see the bigger picture it all make sense. In the first book, Moon Called, Mercy dives in werewolves troubles. In the second, Blood Bound, she stirs problems with the vampires. Third, Iron Kissed, is about fae ( weak to iron). I wonder what will she get herself into in Bone more
