Moon Called by Patricia Briggs

The “Time of Hiding” ended a few years ago for the lesser fae—you know, garden sprites, brownies, selkies, wood sprites and pixies.  Werewolves, vampires and witches are still maintaining secrecy although there are rumors that the werewolves are planning to come out  next—despite the fact that the lesser fae have found themselves confined to reservations now that their nature is known.

Mercy Thompson is a shapeshifter, although the vampires refer to her as a walker.  There aren’t many walkers left in the world—she’s never met another.  She’s okay with that though—she accepted her unique status long ago.  Things have been going fairly well for Mercy—she runs her own business, a garage she bought from a kind old gremlin.  She’s repairing a van for one of the local undead and in return, he protects her from his fellow vampires.  Then Mac shows up.  He looks like a runaway and he smells like a werewolf—a recently-made werewolf.  Mercy offers him a job and considers how best to introduce him to Adam, the local werewolf leader.  Before introductions can be made however, Mac is attacked and Mercy has to call Adam to inform him that she has killed a werewolf in his territory.

Loved this book!  While similar to Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse series, Mercy Thompson’s universe is quite clearly hers.  *I love the fact that Stefan, a ‘decent guy for a vampire’, has painted his van to look like the Mystery Machine from the Scooby Doo cartoons.
