Some people are like Slinkies.They aren’t really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

Mechanic Mercy Thompson has friends in low places-and in dark ones. And now she owes one of them a favor. Since she can shape-shift at will, she agrees to act as some extra muscle when her vampire friend Stefan goes to deliver a message to another of his kind.
But this new vampire is hardly ordinary-and neither is the demon inside of him.
Would you look at all them tattoos!I was never one for them,uh-uh.But Mercy pulled it off nicely and she has this don’t-mess-wid-me-look!But still … I think the tattoos were a bit too much.
You will find that a majority of this review may consist of my opinion of the supposed love-triangle. Blood Bound was more fast paced than Moon Called.It had me day-dreaming more than I care to admit.I don’t like love-triangles and the one in this series has me almost screaming to Mercy,”Pick one of ’em already,woman!” Honestly,I’m not sure to say who I prefer Mercy to choose, Adam or Samuel,not that my choice matters because Mercy doesn’t take my advice.
Adam and Mercy had a rather bumpy-smooth relationship, pissing each other off every other day but things visibly change in the previous book.It turns out that Adam had a thing for Mercy for a while now and his feelings came out into the open by the end of Moon Called.Mercy has this attraction towards Adam too but she’s afraid of her reactions towards him and tries to avoid him.He had admitted that it was his alpha power thingy was what was responsible for Mercy feeling that she wanted to submit to him and told her he tries to withdraw that part of him when he’s with her away from the pack, well most of the times.

I’ve been itching to read this for a while now and I must say it was an enjoyable read.But it felt like something was missing don’t ask me what, believe me if I knew I’d tell you.
I’ll be totally honest though, I love Mercy!I mean she could be a badass but she knows where to draw the line.She may be physically inferior(which might be too strong a word) but she makes up for it in mouthing off to authority and those above her ,but hey I can’t blame her with all of those overbearing werewolves around, she had to stand up for herself.
Mercy’s an okay gal, she’s tough, funny, caring and doesn’t like to be out of the line of fire when she knows that she could be helping.She doesn’t have tons of magic (or any of it so to speak)so that she could just wriggle her pinkie and WAM leveling the street with vampires, nope,that’s what makes me like her even more, she relies on her instincts and quick thinking rather than power.
Another thing I like about Mercy is her expressing her faith in God, she didn’t like the crucifix because it was an instrument of pain that had led to our saviour’s death so instead she carries a lamb around her neck because Jesus’ other name was “The Lamb of God”. I admit that’s also clever I mean which vampire would have thought that they’d be knocked out by a wee little lamb?
