Patricia Briggs' Mercy Thompson Moon Called, Volume 2 based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
These short graphic novels that hit the high points of Moon Called would make a good introduction to the world Patricia Briggs has created. David Lawrence has written an interesting story that remains true to the novel. The art is well done and I particularly like how Mercy is drawn. Though she does look younger than I had pictured her in my imagination. In the first volume, Mercy takes in a new young werewolf named Mac who tells a horrifying story about how he came to be a werewolf. But it isn't long before the werewolves he was running from catch up to him. He is killed, Adam is wounded and Jesse is kidnapped. Mercy is forced to take Adam home with her to Bran to get him the help he needs even though it also forces her to confront Samuel about their past.In the second volume, Mercy, Adam and Samuel come back to the Tri-Cities to try to locate and rescue Jesse and to figure out what is going on with the invading werewolves. There is a lot of story to condense in the second volume and occasionally the pacing seemed rushed. However, it might encourage readers to pick up the novel to get some of the detail that just can't fit into the graphic novel format. I know looking at and reading this one has made me eager to re-read Moon Called myself. I recommend these to graphic novel fans. The story and the art were both done well.
Well this was all over the place in the middle, or maybe because its been a long while since I last read the first book in the series. Still its nice to see the characters in graphic novel form. Reminds me how much I love the couple of Adam and Mercy, and the maybe ship of Stefan and Mercy, but still like the canon ship. And might read more graphic novels based on book series, like the ones shown at the end of this which were Dresden Files and Grave Sight.
GREAT job at bringing this story to life. The characters may not look exactly how I imagined them, but they are definitely close to it!
