Moon Called etc.

Must be something about these hols and reading paranormal fiction...this series of three was a reread, and enjoyed just as much second time round. Mercy Thompson is a mechanic and a 'walker' who can shapeshift into the form of a coyote. When your neighbours include werewolves and your friends include a vampire and fae, well, stuff is likely to happen. And does. Patricia Briggs is starting another series with its first book out soon (Cry Wolf), and on the strength of these, I'll probably give that a whirl.
  • Moon Called
  • Blood Bound
  • Iron Kissed
I've read various paranormal/vampire etc fiction this year (partly because it's a genre in which the kids are very interested), and have tossed more than I've enjoyed (tossed to good causes or charity or back to the library or whatever, not binned). This is one of the few keepers.  Not YA like Meyer or Westerfeld's work.

My ultimate vampire favourite is Sunshine, by Robin McKinley. Blogged it here.  Love that book.  Her next one, Chalice, is out later this year - yet another world, she doesn't do series (but it must be exhausting to constantly invent worlds...).
