Melissa's Review:

River Marked is book six in the Mercy Thompson series. This series revolves around Mercy Thompson, a walker that can shift into a coyote. The focus of each book seems to shift between the fae, shifters and the vampires depending on the book. This time around we're focused mainly on the shifters with a bit of fae and vampires mixed in.

The bulk of this installment is Mercy and Adam getting married and going on their honeymoon. The fae kindly donated a RV camper and a camping ground for the honeymoon which was suspicious since they don't do anything for free. We find out quickly that there is more than meets the eye at the camp grounds though and people wind up getting hurt or killed near the water. While I was happy to see Mercy and Adam finally getting married, this one just fell a bit short for me. Though this does have an epic battle as per usual, I do like to see the pack dynamic and all the fae and vampire high jinks that Mercy manages to get into. I plan on reading the next installment to see how the series progresses, I just hope I enjoy that one more!

  1. Too bad you didn't enjoy this one so much. I hate it when a book just falls short. I had that with the book I read previously.

  2. I noticed this book has been on your sidebar for a while. Too bad it wasn't as good as usual. But sometimes in series one does fall a little short. Hopefully this is just a one-off.

    1. Glad I wasn't alone in that! I kept thinking I must be going crazy since I've seen so many people adore these books. I have liked most of the others though so yay ;)

  7. Great review. This was the last book in the series I read and I think because I was a bit underwhelmed by it. All the previous books leading up to it were so jam-packed with things that this one just fell flat and by the time the next book came out, I was a bit over it. I do plan to pick up the next book and continue the series... eventually.

  9. Been wanting to start this series for so long. It does seem interesting, and I like that it surrounds shifters, vampires, among other things. Sorry this one wasn't as enjoyable. Hopefully the next will turn things around. Thanks for your honest review :)
