REPOST: REVIEW: Moon Called – A Mercy Thompson series novel #1 by Patricia Briggs

There are a ton of paranormal fae and shape-shifting romance series floating around at the moment.  They range anywhere from  novels focussed on new individual relationships, to orgy worthy love triangles to witches, ghosts and psychics.

I’m going to ignore what I know about the rest of the books, and write this review based on THIS book.  I’ll do my best.

Although I will write about specific moments in this book, this review contains NO SPOILERS!

Wildly romantic, exceptionally aggressive, unavoidable love triangles, delicious rebellion, tactful stubbornness and unknown betrayal and mystery .. this book is fun!

The Moon series by Patricia Briggs is really quite amazing.  It is based on a walker named Mercy Thompson.  She’s a neat little mechanic who can shift into a coyote :)   Her character progression totally rocks! But .. that is for a different book review.  I don’t want to spoil anything!

Raised by a pack of werewolves, Mercy Thompson fell in love with the Alpha’s son, Samuel.   In her teens, she is told that she must leave the pack and seek her other family.  She had a choice.  Run away with Samuel or leave everyone she grew up with.

She chose to leave.. alone.

Adam is a dominant, arrogant and bossy man.  Handsome, sexy and irritating, Mercy finds herself inventing ways to tease and annoy him.  Thank goodness for broken down bugs.  You’ll see.  :) Since wolves would normally eat coyotes, their relationship is a little funny but intense and frustrating.

Adam Hauptman, who shared my back fence line, was the Alpha of the local werewolf pack.  That there was a werewolf pack in the Tri-Cities was something of an anomaly because packs usually settle in bigger places where they can hide better, or, rarely, in smaller places they can take over.

For the first time since she left the pack she was raised by, she runs into Samuel interesting way.  There is nothing like tucking your tail and sliding under a werewolf’s legs to avoid being eaten to shove you into more common sense than irrational emotion.

Sam’s eyes were deeply set, his nose was too long, his mouth too wide.  His coloring in human form was much less striking than his wolf: light blue-gray eyes and brown hair, streaked just a bit from the sun.

Being both dominant male werewolves, Adam and Samuel with their instincts of defending their territory.  Being stuck in the crossfire, Mercy Thompson stands up for herself and lets both of the men in her life know exactly where they stand.  She was not theirs.  They had no claim to her.  Period.  Funny how things turn out, eh?

Searching for the betrayers that kidnapped Adam and his daughter, Mercy and Samuel must request help from the vampires.  Those sneaky little devils are a pain in the rear to say the least.

Thankfully, Mercy fixes Stephan’s Scooby Doo bus, and his sweet but manipulative vampire self does his best to protect her from those she seeks help from.

This book is somewhat predictable, but that does nothing to ruin its standing.  This series is incredible and a must read.

I wish I could say more, but I’m tongue-tied until the next review o.O

I recommend this book to mature adults.  Although there is no sexual content, the mild violence is inappropriate for younger eyes.  It is extremely important to read this series in order.  I will be reading the rest of the series in the next week, so only read the reviews before starting each book.  Reading all of the reviews before starting the series is a total bummer.

Line of the book

“Dance when the moon sings, and don’t cry about troubles that haven’t yet come.”

REVIEW: The Hunters: Eli and Sarel – A Hunters series novel # 2 by Shiloh Walker

Positively outstanding!  Heartbreaking.  All-consuming jealousy.  Misunderstandings.  Assassinations.  Sexy love triangles.

The Hunters series by Shiloh Walker is amazing!  If you are a Laurell K. Hamilton; Anita Blake fan, this is the series for you!

Eli is an old vampire who is falling in love with Tori, his best friend’s mate.  Sharing a sexual and loving relationship, the trio have a special bond that links them together in pleasure and pain.

Being hunter by a witch, Eli is incautious and finds himself trapped in more ways than one.  Locked in a dreamlike world with a trusted friend and the woman who tried to kill him, he is yanked from one state of mind to the next.

Thanks to the bond, Tori and Declan are made aware of a dire injury that Eli sustains.

Sarel has been grieving, mourning and raging ever since her mother and little sister were slaughtered by the vampire she hunts.  Being a strong witch, she is able to perform a blood spell that will surely kill the person it is aimed at.

Denied love.  Betrayed feelings.  Sarel is sent away.  Far away for five long years.

This book is amazing and I would like to thank Erin Jamison for recommending this author to me.  Two books into the series and I know that Shiloh Walker will become one of me new favorite authors.

Filled with extremely descriptive sexual content.  Threesomes, sodomy, jealousy and rage.   Eli and Sarel’s story will most definitely not leave you wanting.

I recommend this book to mature adults only.  As I said above, extreme sexual content.  Moderate violence.  This is a paranormal erotica book, so please people … use your brains before allowing your young adult to brave the world of The Hunters.

~happy reading!

 

REVIEW: The Hunters: Declan and Tori – A Hunters series novel # 1 by Shiloh Walker

Holy shit!

Two words that crossed my mind the entire time I read this book!

Erotic.  Shapeshifter sex.  Werewolves.  Vampires.  Love and sexual triangles.  Revenge.  Ghosts.

This book has it ALL.

If you are a Laurell K. Hamilton, Anita Blake series fan, these books are for you!

At first, I was not quite sure what to make of this novel.  Instead of fighting inner demons and struggling against the almighty bad guys, the mystery is lessened with the most extremely delicious erotic scenes I have read in quite some time.

From the beginning, this book is filled with lust and an excruciatingly throbbing amount of sex.  Rough and demanding.  I was very impressed from the first page of this book up until the very last.

Declan, a cop and wolf, knew Tori was his mate from the moment they met.  Being refused by her for over 6 months, he continues his attempts at seducing her.

Tori is an interesting woman who finds herself helping a teenager that is terrified of a stalker she claims is a vampire.  Unfortunately, when Tori shelters her, she runs into the vampire and bites the dust.  Although this paragraph may seem like a spoiler, it’s not.  It’s within the first 5% of this book :p

With an overwhelming and undeniable need to mate often, this book is filled with a constant rollercoaster of new information, working through the animal instincts and a brutally profound craving to mate…Needed as much as the air they breathe.  Or don’t breathe …

This is the first time I have read this book.  I’m excited to rip myself through this long series and although I have chores today, I can guarantee you that I will make myself lazy in order to read read read!

I recommend this book ONLY to mature adults.  EXTREME sexual content.  Moderate violence.  This book contains an explosive love triangle that will just melt your insides.

Off to read I go … Until then!

~happy reading!
