Where I Got It: My shelf (Amazon)
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.
This had been on super sale near Xmas time so I couldn't resist buying it. I liked book 1 a lot and I like Mercy so I wanted to try book 2.
The story follows Mercy Thompson who is a mechanic and a shifter. One night, one of her friends is cashing in a favor. He wants some extra muscle when he goes to see a fellow vamp. However, this vamp is hardly ordinary....and neither is the demon inside of him.
Poor Mercy. Girl just wants to run her shop and go to bed at a decent time. Love Stefan but I would've hung up on him. LOLL. A vamp with a demon inside of him? NOOO thanks.
I was hooked from page 1. I really couldn't put this down. I was curious about what was going to happen next. I had no idea what they were going to.
There is a love triangle going on, BUT it doesn't overwhelm the plot and take it over. It works and who wouldn't love Mercy? She is kick-ass! She is flawed and has her issues which all makes you love her even more. I do worry this love triangle may take over later on? We'll have to see. Still not a fan of Samuel. He needs to go take a walk. LOL.
Now...I will say that I didn't like this one as much as book 1. It was good and I was hooked, but I wasn't AS hooked. I was still dying to know what was going to happen next, but I wasn't as involved as I was with the other one. Maybe it was because I did the ebook this time around? Book 1 I did audio and that narrator was fantastic. So maybe I am now spoiled.
Overall, I can't wait for book 3. Maybe I'll do the narrator next time. Hahaha but ya....I liked it. Not AS much as book 1, but I did like it. A crazy twist and fun characters (minus Samuel) and now demons. Scary. Curious to see what happens in book 3. Love this world and I love Mercy!
