The supernatural romance series Mercy Thompson continues in this all-new, original story by New York Times bestselling author, Patricia Briggs, exclusively created for the comic book medium! Collects the six-issue Mercy Thompson comic book series from 2014-2015, a story set in official continuity.

My Rating:
I received this book from NetGalley for an honest review, all reviews and opinions are my own.

I love this series and this definitely lives up to the rest of the books. I do recommend though if you haven't read any of her previous books to read up to at least Frost Burned which is the seventh book in the series this one is set between that one and Night Broken. So if you try to read this before the series you will spoil yourself for the other books if you plan to read the series.

Another note if you finally want to see what Zee looks like with out any glamour on read this! I finally got to see what he looks like. I haven't read the other graphic novel so I am not sure if he is in the other one but he is in this one. I was surprised, and why does he have to hide what he really looks like? I bet it is because he doesn't want to be mauled over by all the girls that think he is cute. 

We also get to see a lot of Mercy's step daughter Jesse you don't see to much of her in the main series just snip its but this graphic novel kind of revolves around her and the new friend she meets. This graphic novel was action packed and sucked me into the story right away. 

The only character I didn't really feel was portrayed correctly or drawn as how I imagine him is Mercy's husband Adam. It just seemed off of what I was picturing. Also aren't coyotes smaller than wolves? It seemed like Mercy's coyote and the wolves seemed the same height.  I could be wrong and it was just placement that was making them look the same size but I am not sure. 

I do have the other graphic novel and now plan to go back and read that one, since I am still eagerly awaiting the next book to come out.
