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.
I so needed a new-to-me paranormal fiction series! The protagonist is a coyote shapeshifter. So far there don't seem to be others of her kind, and having been raised by werewolves, most of her friends are of that persuasion. There is also the odd gremlin or vampire in her social circle--and someone really dangerous, an undercover cop.
