Gwen Miller may be a human, but she has no problem taking a stand against her own kind. She’s going to testify against the teenage boy she saw viciously assault a lone shifter female—and no amount of pressure from the boy’s wealthy family will make her back down. But when the harassment turns violent, help comes in the form of a lean, toned wolf with winter-gray eyes.

Suzanne Wright is one of my FAVORITE authors. She is definitely on my "Could Shit on Paper and I Would Read It" shelf. In fact, you know what? I'm gonna go create a shelf with that name. Cause, fuck it.

Be right back.


Okay, I'm back.

Anyway, as I was saying.

I adore Ms. Wright and I have read and will continue to read every single book she writes.

That said, this was not my favorite book in this series. In fact, it might actually be my least favorite to date. But, considering my "least

Lure of Oblivion was a good solid read for me. I would expect no less of Suzanne Wright. She is one of my favorite authors and her books always hit the good spot. I will say that though I enjoyed this read something kept it from being a 5 star read for me. I honestly can't put a finger on what kept this read from wowing me but something was missing for me. I loved Gwen. I thought she was totally bad ass for a human. I liked Zander a lot. I didn't love him but I reall

Best wolf shifting porn in the world.

Shaddup judging until you read one of these suckers.

This wasn't my favorite of the batch but it still was just what the book slumping gawds ordered.

My relationship with this author is a simple, yet perfect one. She writes it...and I read it ;)

I have read every book in the the "Deep in your Veins" series, the "Dark In You" series, the  "Phoenix Pack" series and of course the "The Mercury Pack" series. To say that I am a big fan of Suzanne Wright, would be an understatement.

I jumped on this book the second I saw it on NetGalley and dropped all my plans in order to read it. I'm obsessed with these shifters and when I heard this book was going to have a human heroine I was ten times more excited.

Zander is one of the quiet pack members, which drew me into his characters and made me want to find out all his secrets. I really liked getting to learn more about him and seeing him when he went all possess

After three books it finally feels like a Mercury Pack book and not a Phoenix Pack extended book. It helped of course that no one from the Phoenix Pack made an appearance. This was strictly a Mercury Pack show even if most of it takes place away from their home.

Gwen Miller is human. She and her family run a haunted inn that has a marsh for a backyard. She's a witness in a vile crime, an entitled teenager drugging and beating a female shifter, and she's being harassed over it. But Gw

"I want you with me. I want you in my pack."

Lure of Oblivion is the third book in the Mercury Pack. Although this is the third book in the series, it can be read as a stand-alone. The Mercury Pack is a spin-off of the Phoenix Pack and both packs are full of alpha male shifters and their sassy shifter mates. With each book release, I become more entranced by this world and believe me when I say I will never get enough.

You guys know I'm a big fan of Suzanne Wright and all her previous books that I've read were really good. Especially the Dark in You series. I truly love those. So when I started reading this book I had quite high hopes for it. Now, I wouldn't say it's a bad story but I also wouldn't say it blew me away. It's kinda in the middle. At times I felt bored but then again, there were moments where I really got into the story and the characters. I adored Gwen, she so to say saved this story fo

Awesome story and so much humor!

I just love the little humorous threads that the author has going through these books. Like the fact that Makenna is so outrageously superstitious, Dominic and his sleazy pick up lines, and now Gwen has her own funny thing that she does to irritate Zander. There is a lot of humor in these books, which I love, but also a lot of action and romance!

This is a tough one to review because although I liked it, I didn't love it like I have most of Wright's books and I'm not too sure why. Wright is an auto-buy author for me, but this one was a bit of a let down. See, it had the strong, sassy heroine - albeit a human one - who took no crap, a hot and growly alpha shifter, no lack of communication, getting to revisit the previous characters, a decent bit of the old suspense and nary a TSTL move in sight, buuuuut ...

I have never been disappointed in a Suzanne Wright book.

Gwen, while human, is a strong female lead. Zander is a quiet, broody male shifter. They are attracted to each other and the story takes off from there. The story-line is good, the suspense is good, the secondary characters are great. I guess I just really did not get Zander, but, still enjoyed the story. I will absolutely continue to read Ms Wright's books, they always have delivered a great story for me.

I want Suzanne Wright to write a million of these books. As long as she writes them, I'll read them!
I love the world she created and the characters as well. This is one of my all-time favorite PNR series EVER. The formula works and I'm in love with it!

In this installment, Zander meets his match! While I'm not a fan of the shifter human relationship dynamic, this one worked better than others. I think the combination of Zander being aloof and Gwen accepting that their relationship was only casual

I can honestly say Suzanne Wright is my favorite PNR author, and every time one of her releases is imminent I get giddy with excitement, and this was no exception!

Lure of Oblivion, Zander and Gwen’s story is the third of The Mercury Pack and my favorite so far!

Gwen was also fascinated by the whole true-mate thing. To have someone made specifically for you—someone who would never betray you, never hurt you, and would always cherish you—would be something special. Sh

Human Gwen Miller and her family run a haunted inn where shifters Bracken and Zander come to stay. Gwen witnessed an entitled ass of a human male brutally beating a female shifter, coming forward as a witness, she refuses to cower and lie about what she saw leading to her being harassed by the male and his wealthy family.

Zander Devlin finds his wolf strangely still when in the presence of Gwen, his wary but intrigued as a man. When he finds out what she did for one of his kind he wants

For me this was the best one so far. I really liked Gwen and her whole crazy family.

Add to this mix the moody and broody Zander and I was one happy bunny.

I liked everything about this so it’s straight onto the next one for me.

3 „I am totally bummed about this book“ stars.

I am a Ms. Wright fan and I love all her series. She sucks you. Gives you great characters with quirky personalities and a zest for life and for them to find their mates. There is snark, there is a knock your socks off plot. There are shenanigans you love and cannot wait to read about again and again. It’s like coming home and it is the same here as well

Wow! I absolutely loved the latest in Suzanne Wright’s Mercury Pack! It is everything I want in a shifter romance.

Gwen is being harassed after witnessing a lone female shifter being beaten by a group of human thugs. Although the female has recanted her statement, due to similar harassment, Gwen refuses to do so. Too many times has she had to keep quiet against injustice and she won’t do it this time.

I really love Suzanne Wright's wolf-shifter books (both the Mercury Pack and the Phoenix Pack series). I had already pre-ordered this one on amazon so it was an added bonus getting to read it early.
Zander was a character that the reader doesn't know much about- up until now, so I really liked that we get his full story and also that his mate ends up being a human. Gwen's menta

Lure of Oblivion is the third exciting installment, of the Mercury Pack series. There is a lot of fun to be had  in this story and really this whole series. The story sets off with a exciting thrill to it. Gwen Miller, is human, but when she stumbles across a lone shifter girl being beaten by a pole, she intervened and reported it to the authorities. Now she is being contantly tormented by those boys who once assaulted her new found friend

I've loved this authors shifter stories and both the Mercury Pack and the Phoenix Pack books are always books that I sit down and relish. This time though it's a story that features a very human heroine but rest assured there's still plenty of chest beating shifter goodness!
Gwen is such a vibrant, ballsy heroine and right from the start it's plain to see that it would take a special kind of guy to match up to her. Gwen doesn't go quietly or back down and she's determined to see justice served n

The third book in the Mercury Pack series brings us the story of enforcer, Zander and I was happily surprised to learn that his heroine, Gwen, is a human. It’s an interesting twist already, and when you add in shifter/human drama, family drama, sizzling hotness, a heartfelt romance and a nice amount of action, this is another great read from Suzanne Wright.

Like all of the heroines in this and the Phoenix Pack series, Gwen is strong, smart-mouthed and feisty. But she finds herself in a

This book follows the typical formula of a Suzanne Wright shifter novel:

1. sassy Alpha female (even if she isn’t a wolf and even if she isn’t actually an alpha) with sarcastic wit and quick comebacks and this particular heroine somehow had shifter like senses and reactions to things even though she's human - like how tactile the shifters are doesn’t bother her - no adjustment period, two shifters were killed in front of her and she’s all like *shrug* they deserved it, and all the biting and cla

Whew, this is a tough one, it took me awhile to finish this. I like it, it was a good read but I didn’t love it. The plot was good, it was still entertaining and the battle scene was instense. I just had a hard time connecting with Gwen and Zander.

I also love that the Mercury pack consists of wolves, seers, margay and now a human...
Another good thing is the change of scenery and the ghosts 😉👻

Still this is an okay book and I’ll still recommend this to others. 👍🏻
