Moon Called (Mercy Thompson, #1)

Patricia Briggs
Mercy Thompson's life is not exactly normal. Her next-door neighbor is a werewolf. Her former boss is a gremlin. And she's fixing a VW bus for a vampire. But then, Mercy isn't exactly normal herself.

My thoughts:

1. Awful... really awful cover. I can't believe such a popular series has such a horrible cover.

2. I liked Adam and several of the side characters. I also liked Mercy. And did I already mention I like Adam? ;)

3. There is pretty much no romance in this book.

4. I liked the story, but I didn't love it. Hardly anything happens. It needs more, it's a bit boring. Maybe I've been ruined by more exiting series. I just think it needs more action, more passion, more suspense and a little less descriptions of things. I'd rather be shown, not told.

5. I don't enjoy sexism. I think women should be equal to men (not more or above them, but just equal). Women are being treated like a second class citizen. But yes, I realise that it's a book and not real life (great! Imagine if your neighbours turned out to be werewolves! Not much fun I think).

5. I read somewhere that it get's better so I think I'll try more books and hope they don't disappoint. If it's more like this one, I don't think I'll read the whole series. But who knows? Maybe I'll love the rest.
