Publisher Comments:

As #1 New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrongs new Cainsville series continues, Olivias power to read omens leads to the discovery of a gruesome crime with troubling connections to her new hometown.

Omens, the first installment in Kelley Armstrongs exciting new series, introduced Olivia Taylor-Jones, daughter of notorious serial killers, and Gabriel Walsh, the self-serving, morally ambiguous lawyer who became her unlikely ally. Together, they chased down a devious killer and partially cleared her parents of their horrifying crimes.

Their success, however, is short-lived. While Olivia takes refuge in the old, secluded town of Cainsville, Gabriels past mistakes have come to light, creating a rift between the pair just when she needs his help the most.

Olivia finds a dead woman in her car, dressed to look like her, but the body vanishes before anyone else sees it. Olivias convinced its another omen, a sign of impending danger. But then she learns that a troubled young woman went missing just days ago—the same woman Olivia found dead in her car. Someone has gone to great lengths to kill and leave this young woman as a warning. But why? And what role has her new home played in this disturbing murder?

Olivias effort to uncover the truth places her in the crosshairs of old and powerful forces, forces that have their own agenda, and closely guarded secrets they dont want revealed.

Synopsis:

Car mechanic and shapeshifter Mercy Thompson senses that an evil is stirring in the depths of the Columbia River--one that her father's people may know something about. And to have any hope of surviving, Mercy and her mate, the Alpha werewolf Adam, will need their help.

Synopsis:

 #1 New York Times bestselling author Patricia Briggss Mercy Thompson series has been hailed as “one of the best” (Fiction Vixen). Now, Mercy must deal with an unwanted guest—one that brings a threat unlike anything shes ever known.

 

An unexpected phone call heralds a new challenge for Mercy. Her mate Adams ex-wife is in trouble, on the run from a stalker. Adam isnt the kind of man to turn away a person in need—and Mercy knows it. But with Christy holed up in Adams house, Mercy cant shake the feeling that something about the situation isnt right.

 

Soon, her suspicions are confirmed when she learns that Christy has the farthest thing from good intentions. She wants Adam back and shes willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen, including turning Adams pack against Mercy.

 

Mercy isnt about to step down without a fight, but theres a more dangerous threat circling. Christys stalker is more than a bad man—in fact, he may not be human at all. As the bodies start piling up, Mercy must put her personal troubles aside to face a creature with the power to tear her whole world apart.

 

Synopsis:

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...

I have truly enjoyed this entire series. The characters are rich, and the stories are very engaging.

In River Marked I liked the direction it took to introduce us to Mercy's "People." The majority of the series has been dominated by the people in her life, so it was interesting to learn more about her.

In addition, I found that the main battle was unexpected, and very detailed. It's definitely worth the read, but much like good potato chips... ya can't eat just one! Start at the beginning and work your way to this book. You won't regret it!

Patricia Brigg's Mercy novels have been an unfailing hit for me since the very first Moon Called. River Marked doesn't disappoint. I love the characters, the plot, I especially enjoy all of the pacific northwest landmarks used in the novels. Believe me, if you haven't read these, you are missing out.
