Mercedes "Mercy" Thompson is a talented Volkswagen mechanic living in the Tri-Cities area of Washington. She also happens to be a walker, a magical being with the power to shift into a coyote at will. Mercy's next-door neighbor is a werewolf. Her former boss is a gremlin. And she's fixing a bus for a vampire. This is the world of Mercy Thompson, one that looks a lot like ours but is populated by those things that go bump in the night. And Mercy's connection to those things is about to get her into some serious hot water...
Moon Called is a great introduction to a series! Mercedes (Mercy) Thompson is a skinwalker – she can turn into a coyote – because she is descended from a long line of Native American shamans. Mercy owns a small repair garage and fixes primarily older foreign cars.
Into her shop walks Mac – a young man recently turned into a werewolf. She takes him under her wing (and eventually introducing him to the sexy Alpha werewolf who lives behind her), not knowing that behind Mac is a lot of trouble.
That’s about as much as I can say about the plot without spoiling it.I really enjoyed this book. It’s a very quick read and the characters are very likeable. Mercy is great and I loved Adam (the sexy Alpha werewolf next door).
