Book Review: River Marked (Mercy Thompson #6) by: Patricia Briggs

Release Date: March 1, 2011
from Ace
Goodreads | Amazon

"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..."

My Thoughts:

I have been binging my way through this series and you would think at some point I would start to get sick of it, but it just hasn’t happened yet and I don’t think it’ll happen anytime soon. I just adored this world so much and I cannot get enough of Mercy and Adam.

In this one, Mercy and Adam try to have some time alone on vacation, but because trouble follows Mercy around of course their vacation takes a detour. We learn a lot more about Mercy and her background in this one and there is so much more to Mercy than meets the eye. I have come to love Mercy so much and she is just such a fantastic heroine. We would get along so well and I love how she has developed over these books. She has opened up more and learned to lean on Adam a bit but she has never lost her independent spirit.

The plot to River Marked wasn’t my favorite of the series, I enjoyed it but I just loved the last few I’ve read more, but what I did love about this one was all the Mercy and Adam time we got. Also, I missed Sam in this one. But back to Mercy and Adam. We get so much progression with these two in this book. Their relationship has truly grown and developed and I love how that has happened. I love how they communicate and really lean on one another and I love that we never create stupid issues and drag them out. Mercy and Adam have enough problems without relationship drama getting in the way. My favorite thing about this book was how we got to really see Adam and Mercy’s relationship in action and see how strong their bond has gotten. I love these two as a couple and Adam just holds my heart in his hands.

River Marked was another great addition to the Mercy Thompson series. Now I am excited to go check up on Charles and Anna again as I continue my way through the Mercyverse.


  1. I started binging through it too because it was amazing and then life came up and I put it down and now I wish I had not.

  2. I liked the growth we saw in Mercy in this one. Glad you are enjoying the series overall. I am excited about the upcoming new release.

  3. Mercy and Adam are just great together. It is fun to watch them grow together over the course of the series. Glad you are enjoying the series!
