When we left Mercy in Volume 1 of the graphic novel adaptation of Moon Called, Mercy, Sam, and Adam were heading back to Washington to find Adam's daughter and discover who killed Mac. The story continues to unfold and things get even more complicated as the vampires get pulled in.

If you've read Volume 1, Volume 2 is a definite must. Just don't open Volume 2 without reading Volume 1 or reading the novel beforehand, because it won't make a whole lot of senses. In fact, one of the things that I wa
I love reading the comic versions of books that I like. My only complaint with these is that the characters don't look the way I feel that they should!
Mercy Thompson is such a fantastic character living in an equally fantastic world full of werewolves, vampires, witches, and fae. This volume of the graphic noel depicted the 2nd half of the first Mercy Thompson book Moon Called in which some totally not nice werewolves kidnap the daughter of Adam Haptman, the local Alpha. So yeah if there is one thing you don't want to do...kidnap a werewolf's daughter because that tends to make him and everyone he knows a wee bit angry.

Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books...

1 star... This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.

2 stars... This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author.

3 stars... This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I'd pick it up.

I can't help it. I just love these characters and stories. I took a break in the series, and I was glad. It felt like I was back to visit after some time away

I know it didn't help starting on Volume 2 of this series, instead of Volume 1, but this still wasn't a very enjoyable read. The graphics look very computer generated, and I have read computer generated graphic novels before, but this looks obviously so. For some reason the characters all appear "wooden", it may be their poses and facial expressions, they feel frozen in a stagnant pose. When you read Marvel or DC Comics they are very good at giving the characters strong movement, dynamic poses w ...more
Mercy Thompson Graphic Novel: Moon Called Vol. 2 – Eye candy extraordinaire

More like 3.5 but I'll round up.

It took me a little while to get around to reading the second and final volume for the Moon Called graphic novel. What with no bookstores nearby, I wasn't totally sure if I wanted to pay for a comic that I couldn't see. The first volume was beautifully illustrated, but I wasn't sure how much I would enjoy the story. For me the Mercy Thompson series definitely suffers from FBS (first book

Recommends it for: established fans of Patricia Briggs
Shelves: graphic-novel
I absolutely love Patricia Briggs's Mercy Thompson series, so I will continue to read any graphic adaptation for that reason. However, when I separate this from its mother-story I'm left a little disappointed. Part of the reason is simply that I'm not a fan of the artwork. It's well done, but it has a computer-generated look to it that makes all the characters have dead eyes. Frankly, it creeps me out. Add in that none of the characters look like I've pictured them in my head and it becomes wors ...more

Mercy Thompson's life has gotten much more dangerous after taking in Mac, a stray werewolf. Now Adam, the local alpha, has been beaten within an inch of his life, and his daughter, Jesse, has been kidnapped. Mercy must use all of her skills and allies if she's to rescue Jesse and bring down the men who have taken her.

Originally a novel by Patricia Briggs, Moon Called has now been adapted into two graphic novels, with volume two picking up right were volume one finishes off. After reading volume
I love the world of Patricia Briggs' Mercy Thompson series so when I discovered that there was a graphic novel that coincided with her first novel in the series I had to jump up and get it. I am not terribly familiar with graphic novels and my review will probably reflect this.

The storyline is basically that a young girl mechanic runs her own shop in the Tri-cities area of Washington state. She is not just a mechanic, but also a rare coyote shifter. Mercy is not alone because there is a whole su
Not really into comics

it was ok...not worth the to see it in comic form. but over in your money

short needed the full book to totally understand
I thought this was better than the first volume. It seemed to have better pacing. The art was great, but the climax (just like in the book) seemed confusing and like there was just way too much going on. A plus is that the comic isn't quite as anti-climatic as the book. I guess I enjoyed it. Not sure if I'd read any others if they came out. Especially since it doesn't deviate much from the source material at all. I did enjoy getting to see Anna in the bonus chapter! That was a sweet little cameo ...more
I really like reading these books in graphic novel form. It's one thing to read a story itself, but another to see it come to life in pictures. It's like the scenes in my head being played out on the page. Which can be good and bad. Good if they are like I pictured. Bad if they fall short. I am happy to say this was another good installment of this series and the drawings matched the story very well. I continue to like Mercy and how her spunkines comes off the page. And Adam and Sam grew on me i ...more
Graphic novels are not my genre.
Kathy Martin
Please note that this story does not stand alone well. It needs Volume 1 to make sense.

Mercy, Adam and Sam return to the Tri-Cities to try to rescue Jesse and figure out why the werewolves are doing what they do. Adam is worried that there is a traitor in his pack. Mercy has to deal with the vampires for information. And there is lots of werewolf politics too. There is a lot of story to fit into this novel and sometimes the pacing felt a little bit rushed. The pictures were very well done though

I love hanging with Mercy! A woman with snark, mad mechanic skills and a love of tweaking the local alpha wolf's tail (actually stressing his ocd streak via lawn art)

A worthy series full of action & adventure. Meet the Coyote shifter suffragette of your dreams. A strong woman doing studly things. She is emotionally honest, is a character with integrity, and is fairly unique.

Humor, fully realized characters, a USA facing a cultural revolution as the Otherworld comes out of the closet.

Well this was all over the place in the middle, or maybe because its been a long while since I last read the first book in the series. Still its nice to see the characters in graphic novel form. Reminds me how much I love the couple of Adam and Mercy, and the maybe ship of Stefan and Mercy, but still like the canon ship. And might read more graphic novels based on book series, like the ones shown at the end of this which were Dresden Files and Grave Sight.

First Thought when Finished: Another one of my first ever graphic novels. Mercy Thompson by Patricia Briggs was one where I was glad I knew the story first. The graphics were awesome but I wanted a few more story details in there.

Part of my Read It, Rate It, File It, Done Reviews
I am sorry to say that I couldn't force myself to finish it. I love the series, it is in my top 5 supernatural series of all time, but I do not like the way that the art is done for the comic version. I find the look very distracting. If they get a new artist or do the artwork in a different style I would definetly pick up the next book, but until this happens, I am not going to read the comics.
CJ - So, you wanna play with magic?
It's a fairly faithful adaptation of the novel but OMG I hated the art. Absolutely despised it.

No movement, no life, no emotion. Ms Woo's art was essentially a bunch of colorful Sims on the page without much expression. Not to mention none of the characters look like their novel counterparts.

The art alone is enough for me to be pissed that I bought these issues.
Oh how I love this series. I loved reading the books and I was so excited when they turned the series into graphic novels! The art work is awesome. It really brings Mercy's world and the tri-cities to life. A great addition to an awesome character and series.
Now I know why I haven't tried reading graphic novels. I thought if I started with one where I already knew the story it would help. Not so much. It's not that the story is bad just not the format for me at all.
Not as good as the novel, of course, but the pictures were beautiful. There were some parts that I don't think I would have been able to follow if I hadn't read the book.
Plastic like modelling in the graphics and inconsistent look over all. However I love Mercy so I still enjoyed it.
collects 5-8 and concludes Mac's Story ("Monster's Ball" from book I and "The Beast Within" from this one)
It was great and the art was beautiful and consistent. Very happy to add it to my collection.
