River Marked (Mercy Thompson #6) by Patricia Briggs

River MarkedSynopsis:

Being a different breed of shapeshifter-a walker-Mercy Thompson can see ghosts, but the spirit of her long-gone father has never visited her. Until now, on her honeymoon with the Alpha werewolf Adam. An evil is stirring in the depths of the Columbia River-and innocent people are dying. As other walkers make their presence known to Mercy, she must reconnect with her heritage to exorcise the world of the legend known as the river devil.


My thoughts:

This is book 6 in the series and I’m happy to say that the series is still going strong. So far was only one book I didn’t like as much as the other. This book was one of the ones I really enjoyed.

This book is very different than the rest of them , it takes place somewhere else and has mainly Mercy and Adam . All other usual characters are playing on the sidelines most of the time in this book. Even though it was not the normal place like her garage or Adam’s place and we are missing a lot of characters in this one most of the time, I still enjoyed this book a lot.

First of we have a wedding: D Oh and I thought it was perfect for them and couldn’t have been happier how it took place. It just really fit with the Mercy and her life.  We have the honeymoon but of course it is Mercy and Adam so things don’t go as they planned and they both have to fight for their lives again. But not all is bad and Mercy meets other almost like her and learns a lot about her true heritage.

I enjoyed all the native history and stories. We also get to meet some other players that are like I said very similar to Mercy. I hope we get to see some of them again.

Some points in the book seemed a bit confusing at times but I caught on pretty fast and it was easier to understand after that.

Overall, it was a great book with lots of action, love and lets not forget near death experience for our dear friends all mixed in with some dry humor .

This book I rate at 4 ½ ★


Some of my favorite quotes:

“Mercy is not a proper Indian name.”………..”Rash Coyote Who Runs With Wolf. We could shorten it to Dinner Woman.


“Wolves eat coyotes,” Gordon said[…] If he weren’t an old man, I had some rude things I could have said to that.

“Yes,” observed Adam blandly. “I do.”

Yep. That was the one that came to mind. And he didn’t even blush when he said it. Maybe Gordon would miss the double entendre. But he grinned cheerfully at Adam.”


“Son of a bitch. I would kill him. I didn’t care if he was Coyote or the son of Satan. He was a dead man walking.”


“All change brings bad things and good things to replace the bad and good things that were before. It is natural to look back and say it was better before—but that does not make it true. Different is not worse. It is just different.”
