it was amazing

*warning* a huge torrent of gushing admiration about to commence...

I now understand people who are so blinded by their love of an author, they truly believe they can write no wrong (listen closely Lisa Kleypas fans) The eye rolling is over, I am officially capitulating and stand repentant... I am now one of you - with Patricia Briggs. I love everything about the way she writes. Her Mercedes Thompson series is humorous, suspenseful, touching, warm, scary, inventive, romantic - everything, just everything I love in a story! Even with six of them now under her belt, the quality is never better.

In River Marked, Mercedes and Adam's relationship is given the much needed attention it deserves. Briggs ability to write a couple so real yet so sigh-worthy while keeping their animal natures in tact is incredible. They are both strong characters, allowed to be even stronger through their love for each other. The author's genius is even more apparent when considering this is done without the use of graphic sex scenes to bolster those emotions. While the plot-line of a water monster was not as riveting to me as others have been, the interest and page-turning suspense was still present right along with the touch of humor that makes Mercedes such a beloved character.

TJ (sheepishly kicking feet) Aw shucks, thank you!

Tabitha Patricia Briggs is one of my favorite authors now. I haven't read a thing by her that I haven't enjoyed. If you haven't you should try reading her Hurog duology and her Raven duology. Both quick enjoyable reads.
