Being a different breed of shapeshifter-a walker-Mercy Thompson can see ghosts, but the spirit of her long-gone father has never visited her. Until now, on her honeymoon with the Alpha werewolf Adam. An evil is stirring in the depths of the Columbia River-and innocent people are dying. As other walkers make their presence known to Mercy, she must reconnect with her heritage to exorcise the world of the legend known as the river devil...

Oooo Mercy. I love these books. I want her to be happy and have nothing happen...but then we wouldn't have any books haha. 

Mercy is used to being different. She was raised among wolves, but she is a different breed of shapeshifter. She is a Walker. With that she can turn into a coyote and she can see ghosts. She thought everything had calmed down so she could enjoy being freshly married and on her honeymoon with Adam. However, after seeing the spirit of her long-dead father....she realizes something is stirring in the depths of the Columbia River. People are dying and she will be forced to reconnect with her heritage to help rid the world of the river devil. 

Poor thing can't even enjoy her honeymoon! LOL But I wouldn't trust the saving of the world to anyone else. Her and Adam make an amazing team. 

Even with the evil lurking, it was nice to see Mercy be forced to reconnect with her heritage and learn more about the father she never knew. It was learning more about her power and ability. Lots of questions still....but we got some big questions answered here. 

This was a little more slow-paced. It took forever for the problem to fully rear it's ugly and evil head. It then took forever to get a solution. Normally this slowness would bug me, but I enjoyed the pace. I think I would've been bored reading this, but I did the audio and I enjoyed it. 

The narrator was fantastic as per normal so it made the listening enjoyable. I was anxious...though....about how they were gonna beat this baddie. It seemed nearly impossible. 

Ooooo that ending. It made me want to start the next one right away!!!!

In the end, I enjoyed this one. It was slightly slower paced, but it worked...especially the audio version. Lots of questions answered, but now we have some more questions (of course). Can't wait to start the next one of the series. I love Mercy!!! I wanna be her when I grow up! We'll give this 5 stars.

This one is one of my favorites, especially of the earlier titles. It was like they FINALLY are getting it right. But so much changes between this and where it's at now!
