Book Description

Jan. 30 2007 Mercy Thompson (Book 2)
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.

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

A sorcerer-turned-vampire wreaks havoc on Washington's Tri-Cities, causing death, destruction and a paranormal faceoff in the second of Briggs's series featuring Mercy Thompson, a mechanic and "walker": one who can turn into a coyote at will. After attempts by the paranormal community to destroy the malevolent sorcerer fail, Mercy finds herself pulled into the fray: though her werewolf and vampire friends are stronger than she, it turns out that Mercy's abilities make her the only one in town who can save them all. While she discovers the truth about her powers, she also learns more about her past, and the werewolves who raised her. Though the romantic subplot-involving two rival werewolves, Alpha wolf Adam and Mercy's roommate Samuel-fizzles, Briggs has a refreshing knack for imbuing her characters (even non-humans) with lived-in human qualities. When it gets going, this paranormal adventure story is engaging, but a flabby first-person narrative stunts the suspense.

From Booklist

Jalopy mechanic Mercedes Thompson may not be a were-creature, ruled by phases of the moon, but she can change into a coyote whenever she wants to. Because she owes him a favor, Mercedes agrees to back up vampire friend Stefan when he confronts another of his kind. But, being demon-possessed, that vampire proves deadlier than most. Before she can so much as bark, Mercedes is up to her ears in vampires fighting vampires, werewolves fighting vampires, and humans in the middle. She aims to off the demon-possessed vampire before any more killings, but she can't count on everyone who ought to be her ally because the local top vampire has schemes of her own. Briggs' world in which witches, vampires, werewolves, and shape-shifters live beside ordinary people is plausibly constructed; the characters are excellent; and the plot keeps the pages flapping. Those who haven't read the first Mercedes Thompson tale, Moon Called (2006), may well want to after reading the second. Frieda Murray

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent story! March 13 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Excellent story with a lot of surprising twists and turns. Stefan's relationship and feelings for Mercy are more fleshed out and her relationship with Adam develops further as well. The powerful new villain, a demon vampire provides a lot of dangerous action and a new insight into the political games being played out in the vampire seethe. Can't wait to read the next one in the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really good urban fantasy - love Stefan! June 25 2013
By Darlene TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Blood Bound is the second book in the Mercy Thompson series.

Mercy is contacted in the middle of the night by her undead friend, Stefan, who asks for her help. She owes him a favour for his help in the last book, Moon Called, so she agrees when he asks her to accompany him in coyote form to visit another vampire named Cory Littleton. Stefan knows that Littleton will not be threatened by Mercy’s coyote and that it is unlikely that he will be able to use mind control on her. Stefan, however, is not so sure that he is immune to Littleton’s powers, who is not just an ordinary vampire but also a sorcerer. He allowed the demon to take possession of him, which makes him dangerous. While the two survive the encounter, Stefan has been ordered by Marcilia, the leader of the local vampire seethe, to bring Littleton to her so that she can take him under her control. When Stefan disappears and is presumed dead, no one is more surprised than Mercy when Marcilia asks for her help in finding Littleton and putting a stop to him.

Stefan was one of my favourite characters in Moon Called, so I was really stoked that he was featured prominently in Blood Bound. I enjoyed the book, but I am afraid that Briggs has spoiled me with her Alpha & Omega series. I love Mercy, who totally kicks ass, but I am missing the hot romance that is present in her other series. The love triangle between Mercy, Adam, and Samuel has potential but there have not been any major sparks so far. I am hoping that this will change.

I’m still a fan of the series and will keep reading!

Lorelei King does this series justice. It is often difficult for female narrators to successfully pull off the male vocalizations, but King pulls it off. I also think she does a great job with the tongue-in-cheek humour that is sprinkled throughout the book.

I missed this one when it first came out, but it is a solid read.

Mercedies goes up against a vampire sorcerer, and wins. Meanwhile the other wolves in Adam's group are none to sure what to make of their Alpha Wolf getting involved with a coyote.

Good light reading, I enjoyed it.

**Spoiler Alert!** If you plan on reading the book, do not continue reading this review. ... Okay, but don't say I didn't warn you.

The second book in the series, we begin not too far where the first one left off.

Stefan, a vampire, calls Mercy for help. A vampire has come to the city but not has not asked Master vampire, Marsilia, for hunting rights. That is vampire law. But Stefan also believes that this is the vampire that hurt his friend Daniel, and he wants to make the vampire pay. But he wants Mercy's help - in her coyote form. The vampire won't see more than that, and if Stefan's right, he's going to need a human witness. Reluctantly, being the wee hours of the morning, she agrees, and changes form when he picks her up.

Trouble quickly escalates. This new vampire, Littleton, isn't just a vampire. He's also a sorcerer. This was known to be forbidden, to turn a sorcerer. Whoever turned him has lost control of him, and now they need to discover who.

Marsilia sends Stefan to hunt down this vampire. Stefan wants Daniel at his side, even though he's in bad shape. Adam sends Warren and Ben with Stefan to help, and as back up. But then they all go missing. Warren turns up beaten and near death. Mercy has seen the ghost of Daniel and knows that bad is getting close to worse. Worse comes when Adam and Samuel both go missing after they set out to find Ben and Stefan. And the strange thing happens: Marsilia asks Mercy for her help. Together, with Marsilia's second, Andre, they set off to find the missing and make sure Littleton's dead. However it was unsaid, Marsilia wants Littleton alive. Mercy's determined to make sure he's dead.

Oh, I loved this one almost as much as the first!
