I’m always excited to get back the Mercyverse, be it with Mercy and Adam or Charles and Anna. I love both couples, but this one follows Mercy. In Stormed Cursed, we are back in the Tri-Cities. Mercy’s garage is finally back up and running.

I don’t want to go too much in what happens in this book, not to spoil things for anyone who hasn’t started yet (what are you waiting for, this is amazing series, you’re really missing out).

It was great to see Mercy back with Stephan, Zee, Uncle Mike. There are some new characters that play a larger roll in this story too. Tad plays a larger part and is back working with her at the garage. We even get to see Tad and his dad, Zee fighting together.

Elizaveta and her family plays a large rolls in this story, as black witches want to become the main witches of the Tri-Cities. Needless to say, Mercy has something to say about that.

This story is amazing. It was great seeing so many characters again. I liked seeing some smaller characters have a larger roll. There are some great times and there are some sad times. This book left me reeling. I enjoyed it, but was a bit sad too. It was a perfect story. It makes me want to start over and listen to the whole thing all over again (starting with Moon Called and getting Charles and Anna in there too).

Storm Cursed Audiobook Narration

5 Hearts

Lorelei King really nails the narration of this series. She always has. This series is one that helped spur my love of audiobooks. Lorelei King is Mercy for me. I highly recommend King’s stories. If you haven’t listened to her narrate a series, you’re really missing out.

Author Patricia BriggsPatricia Briggs was born in Butte, Montana to a children’s librarian who passed on to her kids a love of reading and books. Patricia grew up reading fairy tales and books about horses, and later developed an interest in folklore and history. When she decided to write a book of her own, a fantasy book seemed a natural choice. Patricia graduated from Montana State University with degrees in history and German and she worked for a while as a substitute teacher. Currently, she lives in Montana with her husband, children and six horses and writes full-time, much to the delight of her fans.

I’m Melanie and I live in Ohio. I have two horses and a dog. I’m an animal lover, avid book reader and audiobook listener. I like to live vicariously through fictional characters. I enjoy reading and listening to mostly fictional books in the paranormal genre, including Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance and Horror. My favorite paranormal creatures are shifters, doesn’t matter the flavor.


  1. Oh yes I also a good time with this one!

  2. I listened to this one and it was the first time listening to a Mercy book. My problem is that Lorelei is Charley Davidson and I don’t think I quite immersed into the story. Still it was a great read. I love Zee.

    • I picked up Charley Davidson because I loved Lorelei King so much. I rarely have a hard time separating characters from the same narrator. I listen to so many series that share narrators.

  3. I haven’t read her yet but she’s another one on my ever growing list to read one day.

    • Patricia Briggs is great. I just finished listening to her very first book. Not as well developed as Mercy, but still a lot of fun. It is the first book from her that wasn’t set in the world of this series.

  4. I get so excited when each new release comes for this series. It’s fun seeing Mercy and all her friends in action.

  5. all my friends who love this series seem to really like this installation. It is on my list Melanie LOL

  6. LOVED this! The baby zombie goats were too funny! I love seeing Mercy surrounded by all the secondary characters. I think that was what was missing from the previous book when she was in Europe. I read the ebook but I feel like I should get the audio and listen to it too, it was that good!

  7. Yes!! I couldn’t agree more! I adore this series and it really is holding strong.

  8. Nice review. This one was really good and felt like a game-changer. We shall see! Lorelei King is amazing!

  9. Did read the review… I still haven’t read this one, so I want it all to be a surprise. As you know I love Mercy. Glad to see it’s got great reviews.

    • I completely understand. I like to go in as blind as possible too.

  10. I love this series and have the audiobook waiting on my shelves. I’m happy to hear you enjoyed it. Now I need to listen to this next.

    • It was a great one. This series has been audio only for me going back to books 4 or 5, I think.

  11. Man do I need to get back into the series. I’m quite behind and I think I need to try to catch up this summer. Bit worried about it being sad but that won’t stop me. 🙂

    • There are some sad parts, but overall, it is a fun series. I hope that you get a chance to get started again.
