Review: River Marked by Patricia Briggs

River Marked
By: Patricia Briggs


Reason chosen:
Saw the series on someone else’s shelves and started reading it...Now I have to keep reading them

Summary taken from
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...

This entire book is about Adam and Mercy on their honeymoon, which makes me happy in and of itself.  We see their relationship as we’ve never seen it before as they learn to completely trust one another, share everything with one another and just be together without of being scare or the other having to take off for business. There is not pack getting involved, and no Samuel to disturb them.
Another thing: We learn all about Mercy, her past, her heritage, her people. It’s pretty cool. We also learn a lot about other shifters and how they came to be.

Not much was bad about this novel. Only thing was that there were a lot of slow parts. I’m not a 100% sure what the whole museum scene was about it kind of seemed useless and pointless.

Overall (Writing style, story line, and general):
Overall I did love the story line. It made Mercy seem like she was at her strongest possible and the story line was focused. Although I found some parts of her novel useless I also found some of it still confusing to read but it was much better than the previous novels.

Viewer Type Recommendation:
Anyone who loves a good supernatural series that doesn’t have the heroine saving the world everyday but simply the lives of the one’s she loves.

If you liked this you'll probably love:
Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series.
