Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.
Again, it is graphic novel time. I have both Volume One and Volume Two of Patricia Briggs' Mercy Thompson Moon Called by Patricia Briggs, David Lawrence and Amelia Woo. Based on Moon Called by Patricia Briggs, written by David Lawrence and artwork by Amelia Woo, this story makes a good introduction to Patricia Briggs' world. Even though I am a long-time fan and have read all the novels, I think that this would be a good starter for someone wondering about the series.

From Volume One:

Mercy Thompson inhabits two worlds without truly belonging to either.
Friday 56:
You're a wolf--but stick to venison. It tastes better and its easier to live with yourself later.
From Volume Two:

I was special forces in Vietnam.
Friday 56:
Signora Marsilai, Mistress of the Mid-Colombia Seethe, may I introduce Mercedes Thompson, auto mechanic extraordinaire -- and her friend Dr. Samuel Cornick, son of the Marrock Bran Cornick.
