Hello there! Review: River Marked by P. Briggs

River Marked (Mercy Thompson, book 6)
Patricia Briggs
March 2011
ISBN-13: 9780441019731
ISBN-10: 0441019730

Car mechanic Mercy Thompson has always known there was something different about her, and not just the way she can make a VW engine sit up and beg. Mercy is a shapeshifter, a talent she inherited from her long-gone father. She's never known any others of her kind. Until now. 

An evil is stirring in the depths of the Columbia River-one that her father's people may know something about. And to have any hope of surviving, Mercy and her mate, the Alpha werewolf Adam, will need their help...
I have been in the biggest reading funk of my life for the past several months and I was already thinking that I was never going to be able to enjoy a book ever again. So when I was contacted about reviewing River Marked and I felt so excited about a book for the first time in a long time, I immediately jumped on it! I have been a huge fan of Mercy's series for quite a while and the latest installment is just another great addition!

Mercy and her mate Adam (who still totally makes me swoon like no other) are supposed to be enjoying themselves on a little vacation when suddenly people start showing up dead and next thing you know, Mercy is stuck right in the middle of it. There's an ancient evil around and it's got its eyes set on Mercy, which just might be the last mistake it ever makes..

I was so happy to see Mercy and Adam finally together! I had been cheering for them from the get-go and to see them interact is a pleasure to read. The secondary characters, right down to the werewolf Ben are absolutely lovable and it was revisiting old friends. Briggs brings her fabulous story-telling and it makes me feel like I'm right there in the story and everything is happening around me. I absolutely enjoyed reading River Marked and I'm more than looking forward to the next installment! The plot is creative and fantastic and the characters are to die for. Love! And I'm happy to report that I feel some of my reading mojo coming back slowly, all thanks to one of my most favorite series ever!

Lush Rating: 5!
