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.

This is the beginning of Mercy Thompson series. The book is very intriguing and the images are very applying. It's a master piece that continues on the covers of the entire of series and a mystery that keeps you craving for more. Mercy Thompson is the friend that you want to have and the confident that you want to follow.

A bit flat, but not too bad. I agree that it's somewhat disjointed.

This is a Graphic Novel. Sort of like a comic book. NOT a good representation of the Mercy Thompson story.

This is a graphic novel based on the series by Patricia Briggs. The actual story was very disjointed. I guess I'm used to "reading' rather than looking at a story. Just not enough meat in the story to interest me. I was surprised that on the first page, they have Mercy running around naked and looking like an Amazon woman with these huge muscles - nothing at all like I think of her. Don't think I'll read the other graphic novels in this series.

Mercy is a great character. She is strong, self-reliant and a skilled auto mechanic. She is protective towards children and she won't let bullies boss her around. Mercy tangles with a rogue pack of werewolves who have moved into the Tri-Cities area of Washington State. Vampires and various fae are also part of the scene. I look forward to reading more.

I liked it as a graphic novel. It translates into something a bit lighter then the full novels, but still a fun read.

Not a prude, but I can visualize naked, I don't need pictures...but to each their own. Didn't realize graphic novel when I borrowed. Just wanted another good Briggs' story.

I really liked this prequel, and I like that it is an original story, not just a retelling of a previous work.

I love Mercy. It's one of my favorite series and having the graphic novel just makes me deliriously happy. Is it my favorite Mercy installment? No. But I still enjoyed. It was fun going back to the beginning and seeing Z in his state and Mercy meeting Stefan and Adam. It was just all so much fun.

The graphics were well done. Not 100% how I view Mercy or Adam in my mind but they in no way looked foreign. If you haven't jumped into the series I recommend starting with the books and then jumping into the graphic novel. There's something about knowing the characters that makes learning about some of the previous events much better.

I want more!
