Mechanic Mercy Thompson has friends in low places - and in dark ones. And now she owes one of them a favor. Since she can shapeshift at will, she agrees to act as some extra muscle when her vampire friend Stefan goes to deliver a message to another of his kind.

But this new vampire is hardly ordinary - and neither is the demon inside of him.

This had been on super sale near Xmas time so I couldn't resist buying it. I liked book 1 a lot and I like Mercy so I wanted to try book 2. 

The story follows Mercy Thompson who is a mechanic and a shifter. One night, one of her friends is cashing in a favor. He wants some extra muscle when he goes to see a fellow vamp. However, this vamp is hardly ordinary....and neither is the demon inside of him. 

Poor Mercy. Girl just wants to run her shop and go to bed at a decent time. Love Stefan but I would've hung up on him. LOLL. A vamp with a demon inside of him? NOOO thanks. 

I was hooked from page 1. I really couldn't put this down. I was curious about what was going to happen next. I had no idea what they were going to. 

There is a love triangle going on, BUT it doesn't overwhelm the plot and take it over. It works and who wouldn't love Mercy? She is kick-ass! She is flawed and has her issues which all makes you love her even more. I do worry this love triangle may take over later on? We'll have to see. Still not a fan of Samuel. He needs to go take a walk. LOL.

Now...I will say that I didn't like this one as much as book 1. It was good and I was hooked, but I wasn't AS hooked. I was still dying to know what was going to happen next, but I wasn't as involved as I was with the other one. Maybe it was because I did the ebook this time around? Book 1 I did audio and that narrator was fantastic. So maybe I am now spoiled. 

Overall, I can't wait for book 3. Maybe I'll do the narrator next time. Hahaha but ya....I liked it. Not AS much as book 1, but I did like it. A crazy twist and fun characters (minus Samuel) and now demons. Scary. Curious to see what happens in book 3. Love this world and I love Mercy!


  1. There is a reason why this series is urban fantasy classic :) I love Mercy! There is so much going on with her. And Coyote. He is always a treat. Nice review!

  2. Yay, glad you picked up book two, Carole. The demon vamp gave me the willies, too.

  3. Ack. The love triangle is the one that killed this series for me. People tell me to keep going, but I just got too annoyed to continue.

    I hope you'll enjoy the rest of the books!

  4. THanks Carole :D
    Mercy rocks!

  5. The third book is my favorite book in the series and one of my favorite books ever.
