Review: Mercy Thompson: Homecoming
Mercy Thompson: Homecoming by Patricia Briggs
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
GoodReads Synopsis: 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.
When Mercy travels to the Tri-Cities of Washington for a job interview, she quickly finds herself smack-dab in the middle of a gang war between rival packs of werewolves. 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: So I’ve had the Mercy Thompson books for quite a while. Honestly, there was something about the covers that didn’t really engage my interest…and yes I am one of those who doesn’t judge a book by it’s cover, but it’s cover is what will draw me in, have me pick it up, and read the synopsis. THEN I will know if it’s something I want to read. Mercy’s cover’s never drew me in. That is until Kim let me borrow this graphic novel.
This was a quick read and it’s beautifully rendered. I love the illustrator’s style. This story was a prequel to the Mercy Thompson books. I got a chance to read the graphic history of the characters and found I was much more interested in the series after having read this graphic novel. As soon as I finished Homecoming I loaded the six books on my kindle and haven’t stopped reading her since.
