I've read books 1-5 this week because I haven't been able to STOP READING THEM!  Now I'm about to start the last book in the series (so far) and I am gonna go through WITHDRAWAL from MERCY and ADAM and STEFAN and SAMUEL!!!! 

Are there other series out like this that any of you like as much? :)

I will have to agree about the Jennifer Estep, Ilona Andrews and the Jeaniene Frost's series.  Another two I really, really like are the Devon Monk Allie Beckstom series and Faith Hunter's Jane Yellowrock series

Kaila...I read all of Sookie in a week and felt the same way I do now!  SO LOST when I was done lol
I can't BELIEVE you stopped after book 3 of Mercy after what happened in 3!!!  I had to immediately go to 4  surprise  lol

 

Jennifer M...I have not heard of Devon Monk but wil def look into...thanks!

Jane...my sister suggested Sookie to me...it took a year of her bugging me to read it for me to start but I finished the series in a week because I LOVED it..  She then bugged me to start the Mercy series...she bugged me for months to read it and I finally did and couldn't put them down.  KIM HARRISON Hollows series is what she has been bugging me to read now....I guess I should take her advice huh!?  LOL

Oh you should definitely read the Hollows Series you would probably love them if you like mercy.  They are action packed and have lost of humor.  I've not read the Devon Monk series yet but my mom won't stop raving about it.  The Nigh Huntress series is pretty good too they also have a lot of action mixes with tons of humor.  I also Happen to love the Dark Days novels by Jocelynn Drake if you've not read any of those.

LOL thanks Melissa...I started Halfway to the Grave today :)

Elizabeth...I am def moving to the Hollow series next!  I have the first 4 books in the Dark Days series by Drake so I'm happy to hear you love them! :)

 

BTW...that last Mercy book, River Marked, took a while to read because I kept getting confused.  A LOT of explanation and "may or may not be who you say or don't say you are" lol

Two of my favorite series are Immortals after Dark by Kresley Cole and  The Black Dagger Brotherhood by JR Ward. These are must haves to add to your list.  I have read through these series twice already.Never gets old.The Women of the Otherword series by Kelly Armstrong are a must read too.

I have the first 3 paperbacks somewhre plus I did 'suggest a title ' for my library and they ahve the series there but in paperback - guess they don't hav these in library binding..too bad 'cause they're really good! Imay end up with these on ebook keepers one of these days. also found out the librry overdrive has some other paranormal series on ebook or at least a lot fo the series!

Have to agree with Jeaniene Frost - Night Huntress series, Kresley Cole's - Immortals after Dark series, J.R. Ward - Black Dagger brotherhood series.  I also love anything by Shelly Laurenston - but specifically her magnus pack series.  Good luck.

Totalled killed the Night Huntress series in a week including the spinoffs! LOVED IT!!!   LOVE JR Ward toO!

Can't wait to start Kresley Cole and I ALMOST have the entire Magnus Series so that will be next after Cole.

Thanks for the suggestions!  I love getting SO into a series that every spare MOMENT is spent reading :)

Mercy is like a friend to me, each time I read the new one that comes out I can't wait another whole year for the next!  That being said, I totally agree with the previous posts, that Kim Harrison's Hallows series is one of the best (I like her as much as Mercy), Jane Yellowrock-truly rocks, Cat and Bones are so much fun, and one that I didn't see mentioned in the posts that I have loved is Karen Marie Monings Faefever series.  I have liked those much better than Ward (good but more romance than action).  I loved your post because I picked up a few names I have never heard of-thanks for that!

I love the Mercy series!!!   JR Ward or Magnus series are very different from Mercy--they are romance novels IMHO. 

If you want something more like Mercy I have to agree with the Hollows, Faefever, Night Huntress, Spider, and Chicago Vamp series.  I'd also add Richelle Mead's Iron Queen series, Jennifer Rardin, Hodoo series by Andrian Phoenix and Down Side Ghosts by Stacia Kane.

Can't forget Ilona Andrews Kate Daniels and Carrie Vaughn's Kitty series too!
