Summary

Coyote shape-shifter Mercy Thompson is attacked and abducted in her home territory. Fighting off a crazed werewolf, she manages to escape, only to find herself alone in the heart of Europe, without money, without clothing, and on the run from the clutches of the most powerful vampire in the world.

Unable to contact her pack, Mercy has allies to find and enemies to fight, but first she needs to figure out which is which. Ancient powers stir, and Mercy needs to be at her agile best to avoid causing a war between vampires and werewolves - and between werewolves and werewolves. And in the heart of the ancient city of Prague, old ghosts rise....

disappointed

I have very much enjoyed the previous audio books but I feel this one is .... well flat and dull. I do not like the sudden introduction of another narrator. Although his reading is good I feel his interpretation of Adam falls very short. He does not capture the character which is a shame because this could have been achieved by the original narrator. Basically if it ain't broke don't fix it!!

Great story

The story is as always excellent but I didn't like having two narrators. For me Lorelei King on her own would have been better.

mercy does it again!

Always enjoy the Mercy Thompson books. Only 4 stars as the split narration grated. Did not enjoy the George Newburn sections, nor did I understand the need for it. Lorelei King is a brilliant narrator, and has always done a fine job. I feel as if the explanation of timings at the start of different sections has been done because the listener can't possibly understand what's going on. I managed with previous books, and I bet every one else did too!

Brilliant

The book is amazing but switching between male and female voices was distracting. I'm not saying he was bad, it would just have been better with the one voice actor.

great story but male voice didn't work

really enjoyed this story, another great addition to the Mercy Thompson series. only down side was the male voice for Adam's chapters, it just didn't work for me and it felt jarring.

Great story

Another good book in the series. Ms. King narrated very well as usual but the narration by Mr. Newborn felt stilted and did not blend well with ms. King.

Missing books in series now available

Using this space to cheat and let Mercy Thompson fans know that the missing four books in the series are now available :)

This series is still going strong at book 10

Patricia Briggs Brilliance Continues

The Mercy Thompson story continues at a pace. This is book 10 in the series and is as strong as ever.
Patricia's writing has produced strong characterisation with new individuals being introduced with fully developed personalities, some good and some not so good.
As often happens the storyline starts with Mercy happy and content and then her world falls to pieces. this time she ends up in another country, at the start having to rely on her own abilities.
Will definitely reread and I would highly recommend this book but I would, also say start at the beginning of this series, all the books are brilliant.

Another good yarn .

This is as enjoyable as the first Mercy Thompson book . I had to listen to it in just a couple of days . ( when ever I could )
I'm not convinced that having male narrator for Adam was an improvement as I've always enjoyed lorelei kings narration for all characters so that's why the performance was less than 5 * ( George Newburn just seemed a little lacking ...)
As I've said in previous reviews this is a good series but NOT all books are available on Audible UK . This is very frustrating. So at the moment to enjoy the whole series you'll have to read some if you are u k based ( I have e mailed Audible U.K but no joy yet)

Worthwhile listen

A nice addition to the Mercy series. The male narrator was good but I felt he was unnecessary.
