TITLE: MOON CALLED
AUTHOR: PATRICIA BRIGGS
GENRE: URBAN FANTASY
RATING: 5 STARS
This book is a fantastic start to an Urban Fantasy series by Patricia Briggs. The focus is on Mercedes Thompson, a walker/were-coyote. Although she is one of a kind, she finds herself surrounded by other members of the hidden supernatural world. Mercy was raised by werewolves, but left their community when she was only 16 years old. No matter what she does, Mercy seemed to keep getting pulled into the business of the werewolves, vampires and the fae.
Briggs created a fantastic, strong, kick-ass female lead in Mercy. She never lets anyone push her around. Not even her neighbor and friend, Adam, the Alpha of the local werewolf pack. This novel has a great cast of characters that you can easily identify with. One of the things that I really enjoyed was seeing the pack dynamic. I’ve always been interested in the way that animals interact with each other, and I think that Patrcia Briggs did a great job of incorporating the way that a true pack of wolves would be.
"Moon Called" is a very edgy Urban Fantasy, with just the perfect mix of romance and humor inserted. This was a great, fun, fast reading book. The perfect start to a series. For those paranormal fans out there that are hooked on Vamps, and don’t think that you would ever like werewolves, try this book! You’ll love it!
