Audio Book Review: Fire Touched (Mercy Thompson #9) By Patricia Briggs

Fire Touched (A Mercy Thompson Novel) - Patricia Briggs

 

I'm surprised at how long this series has been around. It still manages to keep people interested and that speaks for the quality of the stories the author comes up with. Every book is a different adventure and adds to what happened in the last novel.

 

Mercy is as kick*ss as ever. She stands up for herself and doesn't take crap from anyone. It's refreshing to read about when I consider the last few books I've read. I also adore her sense of humor, which is showcased at its best at the beginning of the kitchen scene.

 

I love her relationship with Adam. Though I don't necessarily love Adam himself. I love the level of respect and harmony there is in the relationship. Adam is a very interesting character and, when needed, can put everyone in their place. I like what he represents, but (from the little I remember from the first few books in the series) I was Team Samuel. I don't remember my reasoning behind my decision (because it's been soo long since I've started this series), so your guess is as good as mine.

 

This adventure was entertaining. I especially loved the car scene with Mercy and the female Fae (whose name escapes me right now). It was very interesting seeing that side of Mercy. It also had me hooked for a separate story for the female Fae and her vampire. The witch (whose name is in a different language so I haven't the slightest idea on how to spell it) was an interesting character with all her premonitions that weren't officially premonitions and her silly one-liners.

 

The Audio Book:

 

The narration was good and I could tell every character apart throughout the audio book.
