I normally books by Patricia Briggs. I have most of her books. I was extremely disappointed in this one. When I paid $10.99, I thought I was buying another great book by hers and found out too late that it was a graphic novel. Basically a comic book. I don't care for comic books. Know where in the description did it say it was a graphic novel. Patricia Briggs, I know you are capable of doing great writing, but this wasn't it.

One of my favorite series. So when I saw that there was a new Mercy graphic novel and that cover, I was like oh this sounds interesting. And it was. The art I also like.

Hopcross Jilly is the second original graphic novel in the Mercy Thompson series — the first being a prequel, Homecoming. Jilly is set between Frost Burn and Night Broken, and takes place just after the events of Dead Heat (Alpha & Omega Book 4). There are two things I like about this short story. First, I really like seeing more of Jesse’s perspective. Jesse is always written as a great kid. She deals maturely (mostly) with her mom, her dad’s werewolf pack, and with Mercy as a new step-mom. But rarely do we see things from her perspective. In Hopcross Jilly, part of the story is told by Jesse, so we get some real insight into her mindset and how the world is for her now that her dad is openly known as a werewolf. As one might expect, high school is not kind to her, but she deals with it as best she can. The second thing I like about this story is the way it continues the storyline about the Fae. You don’t have to know anything about any of the Mercy Thompson or Alpha & Omega stories to enjoy Hopcross Jilly; but, if you are reading the series, then this story’s placement in both is important. In Dead Heat, we saw a Fae — who are all supposed to be on the reservations and controlled by the Grey Lords — out in the world and preying on mortal children. But, at the end of the story, we are left without an answer as to why this Fae is out in the world. Hopcross Jilly shows us another “escaped” Fae preying on mortal children, but this time we learn why — and that reason will, I suspect, have big implications in upcoming books. Purchased.

This was a good tie in to the Mercy Thomason series.

I love this series and this definitely lives up to the rest of the books. I do recommend though if you haven't read any of her previous books to read up to at least Frost Burned which is the seventh book in the series this one is set between that one and Night Broken. So if you try to read this before the series you will spoil yourself for the other books if you plan to read the series. Another note if you finally want to see what Zee looks like with out any glamour on read this! I finally got to see what he looks like. I haven't read the other graphic novel so I am not sure if he is in the other one but he is in this one. I was surprised, and why does he have to hide what he really looks like? I bet it is because he doesn't want to be mauled over by all the girls that think he is cute.  We also get to see a lot of Mercy's step daughter Jesse you don't see to much of her in the main series just snip its but this graphic novel kind of revolves around her and the new friend she meets. This graphic novel was action packed and sucked me into the story right away.  The only character I didn't really feel was portrayed correctly or drawn as how I imagine him is Mercy's husband Adam. It just seemed off of what I was picturing. Also aren't coyotes smaller than wolves? It seemed like Mercy's coyote and the wolves seemed the same height.  I could be wrong and it was just placement that was making them look the same size but I am not sure.
