I don't care. I just don't care about any of the characters. Hell I forget almost all of them.

It has all of my least favourite tropes about werewolves/vampires/other mystical creatures.

Also the plot (?) was too slow for me. I didn't see what was the Big Deal and why Mercy had to be involved.

I do like Mercy. Shame all the other people (or you know all the men) around her were such douchebags.
When I was younger I could overlook those kind of men in my stories if they were balanced out by amazing female characters. Now I'm old and every minute spent with characters I actively dislike, is time wasted. I have only... What 40/50 years to read all the books? Let's get cracking!

Patricia Briggs is an author I enjoy reading and the Mercy Thompson series is my favorite series by her. I love that she books have so much to them, intrigue, mystery, romance, paranormal and so much more. I find myself invested in both the story and the characters. These books feel both new and fresh but also comfortable to read like a favorite sweatshirt. I highly recommend anything by Patricia Briggs. ( )

Fun! Were-coyote is a very cool idea. I liked the thought that went into this confection. ( )

Take a kitchen sink urban fantasy world (vampires and werewolves and Fae, oh my), toss in a few interesting twists and head it with a woman mechanic protagonist with a flair of Native American magic.

Worldbuilding-wise, there are a lot of urban fantasy tropes in here, but on the other hand tropes are tropes for a reason. The werewolves are extremely hierarchical (despite the fact that real world wolves aren't actually, but it makes for a more interesting story) and there are some interesting aspects to pack magic that I haven't seen elsewhere. Vampires are fairly typical thus far, although having one that drives around in a Mystery Machine van is kind of hilarious. (Plus I know we get more of him later). Walkers I've seen in other books and we really know little about them thus far (although to be fair, neither does Mercy), but it's nice to have a bit of non-European flavor.

The big change and undercurrent to these books is the idea that the Fae came out to the general public a few decades ago. Only the lesser among the Fae, but it's still interesting to see a world like that. You get an opportunity to explore racial tensions in particular. It's an interesting idea and actually manages to tackle the elephant in the room of most urban fantasy--how in the world does the supernatural community stay hidden?

Characterwise, I like Mercy. She tough enough to get her way in a world of bigger bads and she's got a lot of room to grow. Zee is a lot of fun, wrapped up in mystery. There's not as much of him in this book as I'd like, but again, he'll be back. Likewise with Stephan.

On the other hand, despite being the core of the plot, the werewolves all felt more or less interchangeable. We have Adam, the post-military, dominant Alpha; Samuel, the really-old-but-doesn't-feel-it dominant who isn't an Alpha; and Bran, the dominant-who-hides-it, maybe-a-little-bit-psychic Alpha of the Alphas. It never gets to the point that you cannot tell them apart, but at the same time they have very similar personalities.

On top of that, Samuel is the old love and Adam is being set up as the new love. Love triangles seem so very common in such books. At least it's mostly played as humorous thus far. I have a sneaky suspicion that it's going to get much worse though.

Overall, it's a great book. I've read a few urban fantasy books that I really didn't like, but I'm happy to say Mercy Thompson isn't one of them. I look forward to listening to the rest of them.

First side note: Looking at the other reviews, a lot of people seem to expect this to be a paranormal romance rather than urban fantasy. The lines between the two tend to blend a lot, with some series even changing from one to another over time. So far at least, the Mercy Thompson books are most assuredly in the urban fantasy camp. There are hints of a future love triangle (see above), but that's about it. A single kiss. So if you're looking for something a bit more steamy... This is not the book for you.

Second side note: This is a re-read/listen for me. I've read them 2-3 times before, but this will be the first time listening to them on audiobooks. So far, I'm liking the narration. The narrator does a good job of giving each character their own voice, even shading them with what's in the moment.

So I started this book thinking it was going to be a 4-star but in the end, not so much. I liked it really. But it wasn't amazing. I like it enough to try the next book in the series. Really I liked the paranormal stuff. We have werewolves and vampires and shapeshifters and fae. I like the mystery and I always love a strong heroine.

Mostly what I didn't like were little things that just tended to add up. Like how apparently EVERYONE is semi to fully in love with Mercy. I mean I rolled my eyes hard a few times at this. One or even the occasional second love interest is fine. But it bugs me when the heroine is apparently so hot that everyone falls. It's super annoying to me. There were a few other things along this line too but they were minor. While I love some romance in my book and I don't mind a love triangle. I don't like how it was done here. It just feels very anti-climactic.

And my God with the cover. Honestly at first I thought I liked it, but after reading the book. This is not the way she dresses. So its just so over the top and is really irking me. ( )
