|4.5 “Kissed by Three” Stars for the story and 5 stars for the narration!
The Mercy Thompson Series is UF at its addictive best! Having finished book 1 and instantly downloading this book, Blood Bound (book 2), I’ve gone on to do it again and am now eagerly devouring book 3 (Iron Kissed)! The fantastic world building of Moon Called continues in Blood Bound as we get an intense look at the vampires in Mercy Thompson’s world. It is no surprise then that the owner of the VW bus that Mercy frequently works on, Stephan, is a central character to the suspense plot of this novel. However, there is still plenty of action by all the other magical beings, including walkers (shape shifters), werewolves, fae and even witches to keep you on your toes and enjoying the intricately woven world that only Patricia Briggs’ imagination could conjure up!
In addition, to the intense suspense, we also get a slight bit of development in the romance department. Adding to the two suitors that featured prominently in Moon Called, Mercy definitively learns that she can add a third one to the count!
Moreover, as noted in the first book, not only is the story top-notch but the narration is equally divine! Lorelei King continues to impress me with her talented narration in Blood Bound. Not only does Ms. King maintain remarkable consistency in her voices from the previously introduced characters, but she continues to add even more unique, character appropriate ones in Blood Bound! Ms. King’s talented performance no doubt brings this already well-developed listen to an even higher level!
