This is the discussion area for the Buddy Read of

River Marked (Mercy Thompson, #6) by Patricia Briggs


We will start reading this book in July 15th.

Please feel free to join in and read with us at any time :)


Description: Being a different breed of shapeshifter-a walker-Mercy Thompson can see ghosts, but the spirit of her long-gone father has never visited her. Until now, on her honeymoon with the Alpha werewolf Adam. An evil is stirring in the depths of the Columbia River-and innocent people are dying. As other walkers make their presence known to Mercy, she must reconnect with her heritage to exorcise the world of the legend known as the river devil...

I'm reading an anthology of urban fantasy short stories and there is one by Patricia Briggs...with Warren as the star! It makes me happy...I love Warren so much!! In Red, with Pearls

Apparently it's in the Shifting Shadows (Mercy Thompson #0.1, #0.5, #0.7, #0.9, #1.2, #1.8, #4.5, #5.5, #7.4, #8.5) by Patricia Briggs anthology, which I've read, but I don't remember it! We need to add this one to our Mercy list when we're finished with the rest.

Either my memory is bad or I've read too many books, lol. I remember reading Shifting Shadows, but I don't remember the actual stories in it.

I've never really liked Mercy's mom that much just because she abandoned her as a baby, but we get to learn a lot more about her in this book.

I agree. I wasn't a fan of Mercy's mom at the beginning of this series, either. The whole wedding plan was funny.

I thought otters were cute and cuddly until I read this story. I like that we learn for about Mercy's Native American background...Coyote. The Fae have some seriously scary monsters. Mercy is always put into impossible situations. The Walking Stick comes in handy. The Letter!❤😭
Just finished and loved it!

I loved the wedding. It was perfect for Mercy and Adam.

I love the old Native American stories. Mercy learned a lot more about herself in this book.


Vaughn | 3426 comments I love that we get to meet her sisters in this and hear how much Bran cares about her. This would be my third or fourth time going through this book and I can't believe that there's still a few things that I keep forgetting about. Like when they first got to the campground and she's getting out of the water and she sees something and she looks back and then it disappears. Completely forgot that part.

That is what I love about re-reading, not only enjoying the story over again but seeing all those things you missed the first time around.


Vaughn | 3426 comments All done. That was great. I remember the first time I read it, I didn't like it at all. This being my 4th or 5th, I love it so. Loved the time they shared together


Vaughn | 3426 comments I'm ready to start Fairgame when you two are

I think this wasn't one of my favorites, either, but I did love the Native American stories and Coyote.

I agree with you. The letter got me at the end and I like the Native American part with Coyote. It just had a different feel to it.

made the mistake of reading the letter first when the book came out and spent the whole time thinking she died and it was the last book. Prolly why I didn't like it the first time. Lol
