Review: River Marked

River Marked (Mercedes Thompson #6)River Marked by Patricia Briggs
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book definitely felt different than the previous ones in the series, but not in a bad way. I think a lot of that has to do with the circumstances that begin the book and lead to the location of the book. I loved the incorporation of Native American stories and powers. At times, I even felt like River Marked itself was one of the old tales. Well done Patricia Briggs for weaving the stories seamlessly and creating one of your own in the process. I was also very intrigued with events concerning the walking stick and found the way it was dealt with at the end was very clever. It will be interesting to see what becomes of the stick…

I’d love to see Patricia move on to tales, myths, legends, etc of the Tuatha de Danann and other Irish/Celtic/Gaelic people….

Meghan is an environmental scientist by trade but an artist at heart. She loves all things geeky/nerdy and is frequently found with less geeky friends rolling their eyes at her. She often spouts all kinds of pop culture trivia and nonsense stemming from her avid love of movies, music, art, and books. If not curled up with a book (she reads at least one a week) or comic, she can be found painting with something on a screen to distract her. She wishes she was as cool as Veronica Mars or as Kate Daniels. Besides blogging about comics here you can also find her exploring around twitter, instagram, tumblr, pinterest, goodreads, and trying to keep up appearances on her own blog.
