Reading Rec: Moon Called (Mercy Thompson #1)

“Mercedes Thompson, aka Mercy, is a talented Volkswagen mechanic living in the Tri-Cities area of Washington. She also happens to be a walker, a magical being with the power to shift into a coyote at will. Mercy’s next-door neighbor is a werewolf. Her former boss is a gremlin. And she’s fixing a bus for a vampire. This is the world of Mercy Thompson, one that looks a lot like ours but is populated by those things that go bump in the night. And Mercy’s connection to those things is about to get her into some serious hot water…”

This is one of my all time favorite Urban Fantasy series. I only allow myself to buy physical books of two UF series since they take up so much shelf space but Mercy Thompson is one of those two. It’s been years since I read the first book but I love Mercy’s attitude and aptitude and how many main characters have you read that turn into a coyote? This entire series includes lots of paranormal and mythical creatures and the world building is very impressive. I’ve never read an edition to the series that has bored me.

    1. I don’t think that’s the case with this series (doing the art themselves). I don’t mind the art with this UF series but a LOT of UF series have very cringe covers. My other favorite UF author, Ilona Andrews, has some of the worst covers imaginable but the books themselves are SO good. -Scream


    1. The fan base to this series is largely female. I’m not saying it’s not objectifying but I am saying the art for this series has never bothered me much. It takes more than cleavage and belly for me to get uncomfortable. Plus, I think the female body is beautiful and we should be celebrating it, not hiding it like society has told us we need to.


      1. It’s that she’s supposed to be an auto mechanic and works on cars with her shirt tied up and open? (I used to be a different kind of mechanic and yeah would not dress like that at work/to work. So the covers just irritate me lol No comment on her adjustable wrench šŸ˜› So that’s my slightly irrational feelings about the covers LOL
