I'm doing a re-read over the holiday season. Just started into Moon Called. I do love Mac's character, I love those little inklings of what he could have been and maybe in an alternate universe he's an Alpha of his own pack.  :-'

One of my favorite parts early in the book is the introduction of Adam's character through his note on Medea's cat carrier. Mercy's line of "Did the mean old werewolf stick the kitty in the box and leave her?" and the Mercy's realizing the he had held Medea on his lap for a while before bringing her over. I've always really enjoyed that reveal.

That and when he first shows up at the garage thinking that Mercy killed one of his werewolves and she was thinking..."Maybe I should have explained matters better when I had him on the phone, but where's the fun in that?" I just got such a kick out how she liked to tease him. So much fun.

I love that scene! I think I became a firm fan of Adam with that scene and how he treated Medea. Also when he entered the garage I love the tension between them - I loved how subtle it was but it underlined their interaction. I fancy a reread now :D

Well, you can download an app for the computer & read it there, as a temporary measure... or if someone absconds with your paper copy.

I perhaps have extra copies.

I'm at the part where Mac is licking Mercy's stomach.  >D Then Adam has his "She is mine." moment.  :-LOVE I do really enjoy this introduction to the Mercy/Adam relationship. I definitely got to wondering what was the deal with them...that there was attraction was obvious, that there was tension there was obvious as well. I loved the power struggle between them.

I also really enjoyed earlier how brave Mercy was to try to help Mac when he was cornered by the two thugs. That took guts when she was obviously weaker than the werewolf but stepped in even knowing that.

The fight scene was always upsetting. Not knowing what's happened to Jesse and Adam being hurt so badly. The part with Mercy realizing he's still alive...whining happily and licking his face. It's a nice moment.

I'm at the part now where Mercy is in the woods and surrounded by the Cornick family and Bran has grabbed her by the nose as a welcome and a chiding. I love the implication that no matter what Mercy thinks Bran loves her. How could I forget to mention the introduction of Leah, the werewolf we all love to hate.  LOL

I'm just gonna drag you all along with my re-read!  ;D

I'm there for the long haul! Working my way through all the books. I haven't reread them in a while, usually doing the canon stuff. Even now I tend to stop and add a few details as I'm enjoying MC.  ;D

Who could not be up for the call of Adam? Certainly not me.
