Summer of Series 2012

Hosted by Amanda of On a Book Bender and Kelly of Reading the Paranormal

Since I was toying around with the idea of doing something like this this winter, why not join in the fun early?! Simply put, get further into (and possibly finish, for me) some series before starting others!

Since discovering FictFact several months ago I have been made aware or many series (and authors) that I had never heard of before. So, before delving into some new series I'm going to knock out some I have already begun to get into. Most of these are books I don't own, but my Public Library has a lot of books available through inter-library loan.

Now, I don't actually expect read ALL of the books listed below, but I hope to put a pretty good dent in the list! For exceptionally long series (I'm lookin' at you Stephanie Plum and Cedar Cove!) I will only list the next 2 or 3 in the series. Here in my list, in order of how they are presently in my tabs (in other words, no order in particular ;) )

Review of: DEADLOCKED by Charlaine Harris

With Felipe de Castro, the Vampire King of Louisiana (and Arkansas and Nevada), in town, it’s the worst possible time for a body to show up in Eric Northman’s front yard—especially the body of a woman whose blood he just drank.

Now, it’s up to Sookie and Bill, the official Area Five investigator, to solve the murder. Sookie thinks that, at least this time, the dead girl’s fate has nothing to do with her. But she is wrong. She has an enemy, one far more devious than she would ever suspect, who’s out to make Sookie’s world come crashing down.

Review of: RIVER MARKED by Patricia Briggs

Car mechanic Mercy Thompson has always known there was something different about her, and not just the way she can make a VW engine sit up and beg. Mercy is a shapeshifter, a talent she inherited from her long-gone father. She’s never known any others of her kind. Until now.

An evil is stirring in the depths of the Columbia River—one that her father’s people may know something about. And to have any hope of surviving, Mercy and her mate, the Alpha werewolf Adam, will need their help.

Review of: Silver Borne by Patricia Briggs

When mechanic and shapeshifter Mercy Thompson attempts to return a powerful Fae book she'd previously borrowed in an act of desperation, she finds the bookstore locked up and closed down. It seems the book contains secret knowledge-and the Fae will do just about anything to keep it out of the wrong hands. And if that doesn't take enough of Mercy's attention, her friend Samuel is struggling with his wolf side-leaving Mercy to cover for him, lest his own father declare Sam's life forfeit. All in all, Mercy has had better days. And if she isn't careful, she might not have many more to live...

Review of: Bone Crossed by Patricia Briggs

In a world where "witches, vampires, werewolves, and shape-shifters live beside ordinary people" (Booklist), it takes a very unusual woman to call it home. By day, Mercy Thompson is a car mechanic in Eastern Washington. By night, she explores her preternatural side. As a shape-shifter with some unusual talents, Mercy's found herself maintaining a tenuous harmony between the human and the not-so- human on more than one occasion. This time she may get more than she bargained for.
