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

Bone Crossed by Patricia Briggs
Available: Now
Publisher: Ace
Number of pages: 304

Description from Goodreads:

By day, Mercy is a car mechanic in the sprawling Tri-Cities of Eastern Washington. By night, she explores her preternatural side. As a shapeshifter with some unique talents, Mercy has often found herself having to maintain a tenuous harmony between the human and the not so human. This time she may get more than she bargained for.

Marsilia, the local Vampire Queen, has learned that Mercy crossed her by slaying a member of her clan—and she's out for blood. But since Mercy is protected from direct reprisal by the werewolf pack (and her close relationship with its sexy Alpha), it won't be Mercy's blood Marsilia is after.

It'll be her friends’

My thoughts: 

Bone Crossed is the 4th book in the Mercedes Thompson series and another fantastic book from Patricia Briggs. I feel like I’m visiting old friends whenever I open a book from the Mercedes Thompson series. This is without a doubt one of my most favorite series.

Mercedes also known as Mercy is a mechanic who has the ability to turn into a coyote. Her boss is a faery, her neighbor and roommate are werewolves, and one of her friends is a vampire. This series contains a smorgasbord of preternatural characters.

I love the way this novel panned out. After the dramatic ending to Iron Kissed I was worried what effects it would have on Mercy and her already complicated relationship with Adam.  It was nice to see a more vulnerable side to the usual kick ass Mercy and wow Adam is so sweet and caring. I can’t wait for the next installment in this series. 


  1. I have yet to start this series. It does sound good and I've heard lots of great things about it. Thanks for the review :)

  2. Patricia Briggs rocks when it comes to writing about werewolves... I love the Mercy series but I also love her spin off series about Charles and Anna. "Cry Wolf" and "Hunting Ground"
