Title: Moon Called & Blood Bound
Author: Patricia Briggs
Series: Mercy Thompson, book 1 & 2
Genre: Urban fantasy
“I didn’t realize he was a werewolf at first.”
I read these books because they kept coming up on recommendations to me on Goodreads, Amazon and Audible as well as on the top of urban fantasy lists on Goodreads.

She got tons of flaws and makes mistakes but that just makes her human. She is not one of the flat “strong female characters” that sadly takes up too much of the genre.
