It isn't often that you read a sequel and think it is better than the first, but this book falls into that category. This is book two of the Mercy Thompson Novels and she is back with a vengeance. At the end of book one she had two wolfs lusting after her, Sam and Adam. She owed a vampire, Stephen, after borrowing his VW van to try and save Adams life. And she still has all the customers at her auto shop to help. In Blood Bound there is an animal or creature that is killing loads of humans, whole hotels full of people. Stephen figures out that it is a vampire who is a daemon as well. He asks Mercy for her help and this is when all hell breaks loose. Vampire magic doesn't work on a shifter like Mercy, so she is the perfect choice to take with him. But, Mercy is also a 40-pound coyote that really can't do much when Stephen falls under the control of the demon vampire. Figuring out how to stop the vampire, how to save the vampires and wolfs that have fallen under the control of the demon and killing all of the naughty vampires falls squarely on Mercy's shoulders. She steps up to the calling and does everything within her power to help save the people she loves. Dang good novel!

Poor Mercy. She's living with the man she thought she was going to marry, right next door to the man she's infatuated with--and they both want her. As if that wasn't enough, they are both werewolves, she's a shifter and one of her best friends, the vampire, is calling in a favor. Blood Bound adds strength and depth to the characters we became attached to in Moon Called. The humanity of Mercy, Sam, Adam, Stefan, Zee . . . is only strengthened by the contrast that they are not entirely human. The plot is interesting and fast-paced and the writing style makes the read flow easily. If you are looking for something that's going to really tax your mind as you read, this is probably not the book to read right now. If you are looking for something you can devour in a few hours or break up into chunks without losing your track, this is it. If you haven't read Moon Called, you might start with it as it's the first in the Mercy Thompson series. Then you can enjoy Blood Bound, followed by Iron Kissed and Bone Crossed. After that, you can wait impatiently with the rest of us for a book five!

Some years ago, the fae were outed by the Grey Lords and recently the werewolves made themselves known to humans. It is due to a fantastic public relations job that the weres did not come under attack by human mobs. Mechanic Mercy Thompson is a one of a kind (as far as she knows) supernatural entity, a Walker who turns into a coyote at will, has a strong sense of smell, and is able to run very fast.------------------ Stefan the Vampire asks Mercy to go with him in her coyote personae to witness what happens when he visits what turns out to be a demon vampire Corey Littleton. After the encounter, Stefan believes the messily killed humans, calling attention to vampires who are still in the closet. Mercy remembers that it was Corey who made the mess and through vampire magic her words are accepted as truth. Corey goes on a rampage killing indiscriminately the werewolves become involved when one of their own is hurt. However, the vampire mistress believes the Walker is the one who can find and kill the demon vampire sorcerer and when he hurts her friend she sets out to do that.---------------------- BLOOD BOUND is a compelling and fascinating supernatural tale that fans of Laurel K. Hamilton and Charlaine Harris will thoroughly enjoy. Patricia Briggs is a powerful storyteller who convinces readers her earth inhabited by supernatural creatures actually exists. Compelling and multidimensional characters that the audience cares about will lead to readers seeking the previous tale MOON CALLED.--------------- Harriet Klausner

Wow! This is one book that doesn't need all the erotic romance to make it a great series! A great read for any age. ;)

Great series and characters but what's with the cover art??? With each new book the number of Mercy's tatoos increases. The only one mentioned is the paw print on her stomach. Come on Ms. Briggs your editor and publisher aren't doing their jobs.

I love all of the mercy thompson series and I love the alpha and omega series as well. These are books I could sit down and read again and again. Filled with suspense, mystery, romance and a bit of sass these are excellent books that anyone could enjoy. Probably best if said people were at least 14 or 15.

This book is amazing, I found this series while lookin fr another read that would be like the anita blake seris, and let just say I fell in LOVE! Mercy is independent, strong, beautful, and wont go down without a fight. Her sassy comment made me laugh. The author did a wonderful job!

I tried to read the Twilight books but they were too juevinile for me. These are fast paced and believable.. You can just imagine looking around a corner and seeing Mercy shift or a fae working at your local book store. Keep them coming!!!

Moon Called was great! It snagged me into the world of Mercy Thompson, but Blood Bound was even better! This book brought me closer to the characters and ventured even further into the things that make each character so unique and interesting. I'm really enjoying this series!

Patricia Briggs delivers throughout the Mercy Thompson series. Although Mercy claims the animal nature of herself, the one that is a loner, her circle of friends is ever expanding. More friends spells more problems for Mercy, for her curious nature and concern for others overrides the fear of threat. Mercy the coyote shifting mechanic continues to find herself in the middle of whatever skirmishes are going on in the paranormal side of things. And those worries come nowhere near the mess of her personal life, the man, men in her life. As if she doesn't find enough trouble, she continues to poke the bear (the Alpha next door).

I have so much love for this series! This was my second time reading this book and I can honestly say that I liked it just as much as I did the first and maybe even a bit more. One thing that I enjoy about re-reading books in series that I love is seeing how many things have changed for the characters. I love how some of the groundwork for future events takes root in earlier books. The characters in this series are wonderful. Mercy is awesome. She has a wonderful sense of humor and she is tough. She knows that she is not as physically strong as many of the people she surrounds herself with but she more than makes up for it in mental toughness. She isn't afraid to take risks especially if it is the right thing to do. This book actually has a pretty big cast of characters and I really love them all. Adam and Sam are both great characters. The members of Adam's pack are all so well defined that they really stand out as individuals. I think it takes real skill to bring such a big group of characters to life. The world building in this series is phenomenal. Everything just fits perfectly. It seems like each book adds another layer to the whole picture with complete consistency. I love all of the pack politics and learning about how all of these different groups have learned to live with each other. There were moments in this book that were quite creepy and I loved every moment of it. I really enjoyed Lorelei King's narration. Her voice fits Mercy's character quiet well. It was really easy to follow and I thought she did a great job differentiating between all of the different characters. I also thought that she did a great job in displaying all of the different emotions of the story. I can't wait to continue this series in audio. I would highly recommend this series to others. I think that anyone who enjoys urban fiction or paranormal stories should check out this series. I am a huge Patricia Briggs fan and can't wait to see what she can come up with next.
