Series: Mercy Thompson,
Mercedes "Mercy" Thompson is a talented Volkswagen mechanic living in the Tri-Cities area of Washington. She also happens to be a walker, a magical being with the power to shift into a coyote at will. Mercy's next-door neighbor is a werewolf. Her former boss is a gremlin. And she's fixing a bus for a vampire. This is the world of Mercy Thompson, one that looks a lot like ours but is populated by those things that go bump in the night. And Mercy's connection to those things is about to get her into some serious hot water...
Moon Called is the first in the Mercedes Thompson series. The protagonist Mercy is a strong, likable, witty and a feisty character. Mercy is a shape shifter who grew up with a pack of wolves. She is now a VW mechanic who lives near the sexy Alpha werewolf Adam. She is friends with the Fae and a vampire. When a young lone werewolf shows up in trouble she goes to Adam for help. This book dealt with a lot of background on the werewolf packs and vamps in the area. I love that Mercy is a strong independent female. This looks to be a promising series. The characters are fleshed out and I am already in love with a few wolves. I am anxious to see what kind of trouble Mercy will get into. Fans of action, smexy and shifters will love this urban fantasy.
