Moon Called by Patricia Briggs is the compelling first novel to the Mercy Thompson series. This is one of my favorite series. Mercy Thompson is the main character and she tends to find herself getting into trouble. She is strong female character that can turn into a coyote at will. Never knowing anyone like her she runs with werewolves. If you like science fiction Fantasy read this book. Werewolves, Vampires and Fae can all be found in this thrilling series. On another note don't judge the book by its cover. Yes it looks like a trashy romance novel but it is not. Yes it has some romance and relationships but it is much more then that. If you read this series you will not be disappointed.
