Review: Homecoming

Title Homecoming (Mercy Thompson GN #1)
By Patricia Briggs
Genre Graphic Novel
Rating ⭐️⭐️⭐️

The urban fantasy world created by Patricia Briggs comes to life in this graphic novel. Highlighting Mercy's arrival in the Tri-Cities area.

First Sentence
Go for a run, I thought.

I enjoy the world Briggs has created and have loved reading her novels so when I saw there was some graphic novels released mirroring the series I promptly checked them out.

There's only two out so far and while I enjoyed seeing the characters in art form, I found the story, as I often do in graphic novels, rather too light for my taste. It just rushed by and I didn't get enough depth. Because of that, I'm not sure I'll finish the GN series but I will continue with the novels.

All in all, it was fun seeing an artists depiction of some of my favorite characters but I need more story.

Should you read it
I actually would recommend that you read this one if the series sounds interesting. It might give you a taste of the world Briggs has created and get you to read the novels.


  1. Another friend of mine recommended this series (the novels) to me. I'm not a big UF reader, but I may have to give this one a try. Graphic novels aren't my thing, so I'd definitely stick to the "real" books.

    1. It would be interesting to see what you think. Urban fantasy is my favorite genre.

  2. That cover is awful! It looks like a self pub.

    1. Ha ha! That's pretty sad that you think that considering this is a graphic novel. If you don't like the art work on the cover you wouldn't like the book.

  3. I've thought about reading her books. I haven't picked them up yet, but they're on my TBR and have been FOREVER. Hopefully, I'll like it once I finally get around to it.
