Current Reading Mood: Urban Fantasy
Quote of the day: “I’d have been dead a long time ago if not for my friends, one of whom had just jumped off the cliff after me.
I’d have been a lot more appreciative if he hadn’t pushed me first." Cassandra Palmer ― Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance

HOMECOMING by Patricia Briggs

My rating:

Frigging Amazing! Why did it have to end?! 


Mercy Thompson is a walker, a magical being with the power to transform into a coyote. She lives on the fine line dividing the everyday world from a darker dimension, observing the supernatural community while standing apart.
This original story, set before the events of Patricia Briggs' best-selling novel series, finds shapeshifter Mercedes "Mercy" Thompson fresh out of college and looking for a job. Somehow she ends up smack in the middle of warring packs of werewolves and face-to-face with angry vampires. Worse yet, she faces the dreaded job interview! And as if fangs and fur weren’t bad enough, Mercy must deal with the scariest creature of all: her mother, who is convinced that Mercy is making a mess of her life and determined to set her daughter on the right course.
The thrilling adventures of Mercy Thompson–Moon Called, Blood Bound,and Iron Kissed–have topped the New York Times bestseller list. Now Mercy makes her comics debut in an exclusive new story created by Patricia Briggs. Mercy Thompson: Homecoming is sure to please longtime fans and capture new ones with its mix of unforgettable characters and thrilling supernatural intrigue.

My Thoughts:
First off..If you have yet to read the Mercy Thompson series, I HIGHLY recommend it. It's an amazing addition to the Urban Fantasy genre and each book is better than the last. I'm highly anticipating the Fifth book in the series "Silver Borne". It's going to be amazing!
This however, is a Graphic novel, which made me very excited when I first heard that Mercy was moving to comics.(Or at least one.) The artwork in the book is fantastic and portrays Mercy awesome. It's pretty close to what I originally pictured her as well(minus some of the muscles), so that was a bonus. The story is about how she became who she is now and what she went through, first moving next to the amazing Adam. Stefan has a occurring role, which I was happy about. - Which is a given considering they first meet when she first arrives in the Tri-Cities.

If your already a fan of Mercy and can't decide if you want to buy the hardcover Graphic novel, I'd say it's a good call. If you collect her books then I'd say its a major asset to the collection and a MUST have! Mercy is brought into color for us to see and we get to enjoy more of our beloved characters! When I find myself begging for "Silver Borne" to come out I just open that up and get my dosage. :)
I really hope she makes more graphic novels for Mercy!

Here's some art from the novel:

I love Mercy too, but I prefer her in the regular novels. The graphic novel was fun to see but Not quite the same :)
