"compelling and fascinating supernatural tale"
Some years ago, the fae were outed by the Grey Lords and
recently the werewolves made themselves known to humans. It
is due to a fantastic public relations job that the weres
did not come under attack by human mobs. Mechanic Mercy
Thompson is a one of a kind (as far as she knows)
supernatural entity, a Walker who turns into a coyote at
will, has a strong sense of smell, and is able to run very
Stefan the Vampire asks Mercy to go with him in her coyote
personae to witness what happens when he visits what turns
out to be a demon vampire Corey Littleton. After the
encounter, Stefan believes the messily killed humans,
calling attention to vampires who are still in the closet.
Mercy remembers that it was Corey who made the mess and
through vampire magic her words are accepted as truth.
Corey goes on a rampage killing indiscriminately; the
werewolves become involved when one of their own is hurt.
However, the vampire mistress believes the Walker is the
one who can find and kill the demon vampire sorcerer and
when he hurts her friend she sets out to do that.
BLOOD BOUND is a compelling and fascinating supernatural
tale that fans of Laurel K. Hamilton and Charlaine Harris
will thoroughly enjoy. Patricia Briggs is a powerful
storyteller who convinces readers her earth inhabited by
supernatural creatures actually exists. Compelling and
multidimensional characters that the audience cares about
will lead to readers seeking the previous tale MOON CALLED.
