Favorite Authors Month- Patricia Briggs

Written By: Kellie - Aug• 22•11

A big thank you to everyone who stopped by and participated in Rachel Vincent week. I had a lot of fun and I hope all of you did too =)

*sniffle* We have reached the last week of Favorites Month but I’m going out with a bang. An entire week of of the wonderful Patricia Briggs! She is best known for her Mercy Thompson series which just might be the epitome of urban fantasy but she has been writing fantasy for a long time and even die hard Mercy fans may find something new to love in Patricia’s older works.

Mercedes Thompson is a VW mechanic with the ability to shift into a coyote. If that and her unstoppable attitude weren’t enough, her world is filled with all manner of the supernatural. Personally, I’m in love with the werewolves Patricia Briggs has created (in fact, they’re probably my favorite werewolves) but there are also ghosts, vampires, fey and other bump-in-the-night types to keep you interested. In the last couple of years we have gotten to see even farther into the world of werewolves with the Alpha and Omega spin off series.

Patricia Briggs has also written two duologys, one standalone and another series of four, all of which are more or less in the traditional fantasy vein. None of which I’ve read, yet. I love that one of my favorite authors still has such a huge body of work that I still get to look forward to and later this week I will do a brief introduction to each in an attempt to decide which one I’m going to read next.

No question, Patricia Briggs has made a name for herself as one of the queens of fantasy and she has written something for every type of fantasy lover. If you have yet to read anything by her you are missing out, but of course at the end of the week I will be hosting a Patricia Briggs giveaway so stay tuned!

    Patricia Briggs really is amazing. I started reading her Mercy Thompson series a couple of years ago, and quickly found myself buying just about every other book she had! Its one of the cases where you just don’t love a series, but you love the author :)

  2. Patricia Briggs is amazing!
    I will confess that I’m addicted to her Alpha & Omega series. I need more books in that series!!!
