Review: Bone Crossed (Mercy Thompson #4) by Patricia Briggs

5 stars for Bone Crossed (Mercy Thompson book 4) by Patricia Briggs.

It has been such a long time since I am granted the pleasure to weave my way through a series, book after book after book; and skip the torturous experience of having to wait a year for the next instalment. It feels really wonderful to be allowed to move on straight to the next book upon reaching the end of the previous.

Bone Crossed pretty much picks up from the unfinished scene in book 3 Iron Crossed. The story revisits Mercy's affiliation with her vampire friend Stefan, his seethe and menagerie. Though the plot focuses on the nightwalkers, there is also much involvement coming from the werewolf pack due to Mercy's unique relationship with the sexy alpha Adam.

All in all, the author has done a fantastic job on not only exploring the politics and intricate relationship in and among the local vampire clan, but also the inter-relationship among the supernatural communities of the shapeshifters and faes. Thus far, Bone Crossed has the most intriguing and captivating account of Mercy's life expedition.

Publisher: Ace; Reprint edition
Publication date: 3 Feb 2009


Car mechanic and sometime shapeshifter Mercy Thompson has learned, the hard way, why her race was almost exterminated. When European vampires immigrated to North America, they found Mercy's people had a hidden talent - for vampire slaying. Unfortunately for Mercy, the queen of the local vampire seethe has discovered her true identity. She's also furious when she learns Mercy has crossed her and killed one of her vampires. Mercy may be protected from direct reprisals by the werewolf pack (and her interesting relationship with its Alpha), but that just means Marsilia will come after Mercy some other way. So Mercy had better prepare to watch her back.
