Book Description

2 Jun 2011 Mercy Thompson (Book 4)

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.

Review

Plenty of Twists and turns . . . Kept me entertained from its deceptively innocent beginning to its can't -put-it-down end (Kim Harrison, bestselling author of Dead Witch Walking)

Thompson is a sharp, strong heroine and her lycanthropic love triangle is honest and steamy. Briggs never shies from difficult material, and she moves effortlessly from werewolf pack psychology to human legal proceedings, making this a tense, nimble, cro (Publishers Weekly)

Book Description

The fourth in the high-tension supernatural series that is taking the US by storm.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bone Crossed, 6 Feb 2009
Format:Paperback
The fourth book in the Mercy Thompson series, which starts with MOON CALLED, BLOOD BOUND and IRON KISSED, BONE CROSSED starts about a week after the events in Iron Kissed left off.

Mercy Thompson, a shape-shifting mechanic in the Tri-Cities, is still recovering from the abuse she experienced at the hands of Tim in the previous book. Although she has finally chosed between Samuel and Adam, the two Alpha wolves who were both after her heart, her frequent panic attacks and understandable reluctance to get intimate with anyone is the next obstacle that Adam and Mercy have to overcome.

The book opens with Mercy's vampire friend, Stephan, being dumped at her trailer as a dried out husk that is near death. The queen of the vampires has found out about Mercy's part in the death of one of her fabvourite generals, and now she's after her. Mercy now needs to try and outwit the entire vampire hoard of the tri-cities, without drawing Adam and the pack into trouble as well.

I liked how honest Mercy is about her issues; her panic attacks make for some very sympathetic reading, as she tries to recover from the rape in the previous book, and some of the more emotionally detailed sections of the book brought me to tears. I also have a huge amount of respect for Adam and how he deals with it; makes him all the more attractive, if that's even possible!

All in all a very welcome addition to the series, and I will be interested to see where Briggs takes Mercy in the next book. Anyone who enjoyed the previous three in the series will definately enjoy BONE CROSSED; however, even though I've given it 5 stars (which it deserves), I think perhaps I enjoyed IRON KISSED more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mercy strikes back 11 Aug 2009
Format:Paperback
Mercedes Thompson, mechanic and shapeshifter, lives in a world where the fae were forced to come out to the human population due to the advances in technology: making the secret nature of their species no longer possible. Thus the Gray Lords (the enigmatic leaders of the fae) decided it was time to come out to the humans -- along with the werewolves who revealed their existence recently. Vampires however, remain hidden in shadow fearing what would happen if their existence was discovered.

'Bone Crossed' continues the plotlines expounded in 'Blood Bound' with Stefan, Marsilia, and the vampire seethe. Having murdered Andre and received Stefan's protection in covering it up to keep her safe -- Mercy has nevertheless been waiting for the fallout that would occur when Marsilia (the Mistress of the vampires) finds out about the killing. After all, Stefan can't protect her forever. She's safe until Stefan lands (quite literally) in the middle of her living room a tortured shell of the vampire he once was, and informs her that the Mistress knows. Now she is after a little creative retribution. Some that will not start a war with the werewolves. The other arcs in 'Bone Crossed' is Mercy's continuing relationship with Adam, alpha of the local werewolf pack, and the consequences of the sexual assault from the prior book. There's also the arc tied up in the vampire one of the ghosts in Spokane.

This book was a little patchy. There were a lot of things going on and perhaps, not quite enough space to develop them all sufficiently. The start of the story was incredibly slow and the actual meat of the plot did not get moving until many pages into the book -- what was worse, was that I just wasn't very interested in the Spokane-ghost plotline.

5.0 out of 5 stars Part of the pack 7 Jun 2009
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
"My soul was a lot more battered than my body, but I couldn't see it in the mirror. Hopefully nobody else could either."

Patricia Briggs put her werecoyote heroine Mercy Thompson through the grinder in the past, complete with a brutal rape. "Bone Crossed" has Mercy dealing with a slew of new personal problems -- plus some very nasty vampire politics. It's a pretty busy story, but Briggs juggles the subplots -- and Mercy's internal troubles -- with unusual deftness.

A week after Tim's death, Mercy and Adam are trying to hash out the whole Alpha-mate situation, when a couple of unexpected guests arrive -- her mother, and a tortured, starved Stefan. Mercy destroyed Marsilia's right-hand man Andre, and the vampire has retaliated by almost killing Stefan and by roundabout attacks at the wolf pack (including a crazed snow elf).

To make matters worse, Mercy investigates a haunting at her old college buddy Amber's house... and discovers that the freakishly powerful vampire called the Monster is manipulating Amber. Stefan decides to take some drastic action to protect Mercy from other vampires... but it may not be enough to keep her safe from her new enemy.

Patricia Briggs has always had a knack for giving a unique spin to the staples of a genre, and fortunately "Bone Crossed" shows no diminishing of that. Instead, Briggs ties a bunch of subplots into a complicated knot, and slowly unravels it as Mercy discovers the answers to all the various mysteries. All through it, she continues to juggle the subplots without dropping them.

And Briggs' smooth, detailed style is well-suited to Mercy's world, which is described with mellow humor.
