This is a graphic novel prequel to Briggs's Mercy Thompson series. Mercy is drawn with some powerful gams! It's helpful to get a visual on the other creatures in Mercy's universe, especially Stefan. His grungy/rock-y/punky style is described in Moon Called, but I didn't really buy it until I saw the drawing in the gallery at the end of Homecoming. I'm not sure I'm really down with Adam's and Bran's depictions, though. The story didn't grab me so much, but I'm already so sucked into the series that I couldn't resist reading it. It's pretty slim and goes down fast.
Cat report: The werewolf and shapeshifter tolerating cat makes a brief appearance in the story and then is featured more prominently in the end, promising to be a more important character in future installments.
