This is actually a re-read for me, and this is one of my favorite series!

It is a re-read for me too. It has been awhile since I read it. How are we reading this... at our own pace or chapters/day?


Vaughn | 3411 comments I would think the same as always, at our own pass. this is a re-read for me and my favorite,=. it will not take me as long as usual. lol

I forgot how many characters are introduced in this series. It makes it a little difficult to keep them straight especially when listening to it.

Brand is so arrogant but he is one tough Alpha. Dr. Wallace gave me the creeps. I like Mercy. She is a strong independent woman.

Vaughn | 3411 comments At least it doesn't break up the characters into different chapters or story lines.

I love this book. The opening delves you right into the world with Mack. I like how Adam is introduced before we even meet him. We also meet Tony Ben and Darryl, pretty early on too.

I thought Briggs did it smoothly with the introduction of all the characters. I like that the characters are all well developed.

You can feel the tension between Mercy and Adam. Samuel brings his own tension.

I love Mercy do much. And Adam, too. I love how she eggs him on without even trying...much :)

Who is your favorite wolf? I think mine is Darryl.

Mercy is the United Nations of the supernatural world. I like Warren. Haven't really met Darryl yet. I like Stefano.


LisaaReads | 8 comments i love books like these! I will definitely have to read it!


Vaughn | 3411 comments My favorite wolf is Warren (so far). i forgot how much this book sets up stories in the later books.

whats up with writers having such long chapters?


Vaughn | 3411 comments dont you love the mystery of Ben?

One thing I really like about Mercy is that she stays steady over the course of the series. The author doesn't change her to fit the story or circumstances like happens so many times in long series. Mercy has her own set of morals and beliefs and she sticks to them even when it's hard to.

I'm so glad to be re-reading this. It's really interesting seeing the characters again knowing everything that I know about them now. It gives me a whole new perspective on things. I love Samuel. The first time I read this book I was kind of mad at him the whole time for wanting to use Mercy like he did, but after things are revealed I can understand him better, and he is still one of my favorites. I love it later when (view spoiler)

I was not too happy with Samuel either but after Bran explains what happened to Samuel I feel some compassion for him. It has to be rough having so many dying because of the change and miscarriages. What's up with the low incidence of female werewolves? I don't know if I would want to be a female werewolf because of the children issue.

Whatever it is that causes the Change is a virus, and females don't usually make it through. Trying to Change kills most of them. Most of the men, too, actually, but more men make it through than women.

Lys (lysrowan) Where would you put this as compared to some of the other books we have buddy read together?
I've been thinking of picking it up, but you give high stars so often :P

This is one of my favorite series. Compared to other buddy reads...I like this better than Cat and Bones and Psy-Changeling.


message 32: by Lys (new) - rated it 4 stars

Lys (lysrowan) oooh. that's high praise.


We had our final "class" day yesterday. I have conferences for finals week, and then I'm done!!
Well, and a TON of grading. :)
I might have to catch up with you guys.

I'd love to have you read this with us :) I'm sure we won't be starting book two at least until the end of next week, so that should give you some time to catch up.

I like the writing and the well developed characters. It doesn't have all the playful banter that either of those two series above have. It is definitely Urban Fantasy rather than PNR.

Where is everyone? I read up to chapter 9 last night.

Only the strong survive.

Yes, not nearly as much romance as the other series.

I don't know what chapter but Mercy just met with Signora Marsilia where we learned more about Mercy and her abilities.

Since you like this series so much I think you would like the Kate Daniels series. Mercy and Kate are similar.

I would so be up to reading those together.

Mercy is one of the best characters I've read. the only changing she does is to improve herself.


Vaughn | 3411 comments I'm in chapter 10. LOVE this one, I fly through it. this is the third time I've read it, but the first time that I realized how harsh Samuel is at the beginning. I don't remember what I thought the first since its been many years ago when I read it. However, I do realize why he is the way he is.


Vaughn | 3411 comments I've been trying to get to Kate Daniels and would love to read it AFTER I complete Dark Hunters. It is a must that I get DH finished this year. That's my goal and I'm sure Sheri would appreciate that. LOL


message 46: by Lys (new) - rated it 4 stars

Lys (lysrowan) I read a novella of Kate Daniels and I enjoyed it. I would be up for that series.

I like Mercy's analytical mind. She is always trying to solve the problems.

It looks like Kate Daniels is next then. Love it!

Um, I guess two weeks if we are planning on alternating this with the DH books still.
