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.

In River Marked Mercy and Adam get married and go on their honeymoon, which I loved. The parts with them together not fighting bad guys seems so few and far between so it was nice seeing them together being a happy couple for a while. However, trouble always follows Mercy. This time in the guise of a HUGE River Devil that can take over people’s minds and eat them.
What I didn’t care for in this story is it goes from an Urban Fantasy revolving around Fae, Vampires and Werewolves and morphs into Native American folklore. The entire feel of the story changes. I understand that Mercy is Native American, and her Coyote form comes from that heritage, but this story didn’t feel like it fit with the larger Mercy World to me. It took a complete 180. Bringing in the spirit animals, with Wolf especially was just weird. How does that fit in with the larger world? For me, it only adds more confusion, especially any time Coyote speaks and the deal about her father. WTH.
River Marked is not my favorite, and I am rating this one 3 Boundless Stars.
Mercy and Adam get married! WooHoo! And may I add, I love all the details of how it came about. Snorts! So off they go on their honeymoon and, as well all know, where ever Mercy goes, trouble follows. How much trouble can you get in when you're own your honeymoon in a campground?
Two words: river monster. *Smacks forehead* Trust Mercy to get right into the thick of it all. Even with her man at her side, things get pretty dangerous. Not to worry, Mercy handles it with her own usual coyote flair. O.o Along the way we get to learn more about Mercy's background that even she didn't know. ACK! With the author dangling carrots like this right and left there really was no putting down this book!
This story takes place away from most of the group and I have to say that I missed some of the characters that I have grown to love just a bit. Mercy and Adam are there for the whole book so I didn't have too much time to spend missing everyone else. Mercy and Adam are off on their honeymoon but they end up getting involved in a situation that needs their help. There are some interesting characters that are a part of this installment including some that knew Mercy's father.
This book had a lot of really good elements. I like how Mercy and Adam's relationship just keeps getting stronger. I really cannot get enough of these two and think that they are just perfect for each other. The chemistry between them is amazing. It was interesting to learn a little bit more about Mercy's background. Her father is really quite a mystery so getting the chance to learn a little bit more is really quite exciting. There was plenty of excitement in this installment. I mean there is a river monster to be battled so of course there is some excitement. This was the kind of book that you just don't want to put down.
Lorelei King does an amazing job with this audiobook. I really didn't expect anything else. She has done such a fantastic job with all of book in this series that I have listened to so far. She has become the voice of Mercy form me. She does a great job with a large cast of characters and brings a lot of emotion into the story. Her voice is very pleasant to listen to and she read the story at a very natural pace. I was able to completely lose myself in this book for hours at a time. I can't wait to listen to more of this series.
I would highly recommend this series to others. I do think that this is a series that really does need to be read in order since the relationships between the characters develop throughout the series. I can't wait to continue with my re-read of this series very soon.

the book deserves this rating it keeps you on you're toes .with the plot Mercy three lead character has a knack of getting herself in to trouble Tunis book is no different .it has a good story line is very well written with some unusual and fun characters all supernatural of course. In this book Mercy is on her honeymoon with Adam Alpha werewolf. And they are fighting 90 ft river monsters as you do as,well as meeting some very ancient people.
I w kills recommend this book to anybody who likes supernatural
There was an alternative reason for sending them to that camp site, a something that nearly finishes Mercy off forever but does introduce her to Coyote who is not her father.
I was fascinated by Mercy's origins and all the Native American background. I also love the way the eventual fight and Mervy's injuries are mentioned in the following books. It's made clear that the whole experience went deep with her.
However great the old formula, it's good to break it occasionally and enjoy it all the more when it goes back to the usual rough and tumble.
Another great Mercy story (and makes you love Adam even more!)
Not the best in the series, but a solid member worth about four and a half stars.
