Mercy Thompson is one of my favorite urban fantasy/romance characters, and I love Bone Crossed, book four of the series. Having finally made her choice between her two would-be lovers, Mercy agrees to help an old friend with a ghost problem. As usual, trouble ensues, and there is more to the friend's request than meets the eye. Patricia Briggs keeps Mercy fresh and as kick-ass as ever — plus, it's great to see Mercy finally succumb to her heart's desire!

Publisher Comments:

New in the #1 New York Times bestselling urban fantasy series.

In a world where "witches, vampires, werewolves, and shape-shifters live beside ordinary people" (Booklist), it takes a very unusual woman to call it home. By day, Mercy Thompson is a car mechanic in Eastern Washington. By night, she explores her preternatural side. As a shape-shifter with some unusual talents, Mercy's found herself maintaining a tenuous harmony between the human and the not-so-human on more than one occasion. This time she may get more than she bargained for.

Review:

"Briggs makes a well-deserved move into hardcover with the rousing fourth adventure for kick-ass were-coyote auto mechanic Mercedes Thompson. Healing in body and spirit after the events of 2008's Iron Kissed, Mercy is preparing to marry alpha werewolf Adam Hauptman when an old friend asks her to help fend off a nasty ghost. It's a good time for Mercy to leave Portland, Ore.: vampire queen Marsilia is after her and her vampire friend Stefan for successfully hunting down a monster that should have killed them. Mercy leaves Adam to negotiate peace with Marsilia and heads to Spokane, Wash., to investigate the ghost, an unexpectedly complicated task. Though action supersedes characterization, the preternatural culture of vampire seethes and wolf pack politics is deeply intriguing. Briggs provides plenty of detail about Mercy's complex world without boring info-dumps, satisfying both new and longtime readers." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

After reading the first four and waiting literally FOREVER (okay, a week) for this one to come in the mail, I was more than ready to delve back into the world of Mercy Thompson. Let me tell you, Bone Crossed, book 4 in the Mercedes Thompson series definitely does not disappoint.

I love Mercy because she is such a strong female character. She's not overly attractive or overly powerful. She's strong in her femininity and the way she exists as a survivor. She doesn't let the little things keep her down and is always ready to hand out a little butt kicking when it is needed.

In Bone Crossed, Briggs continues the story line started in Iron Kissed. I won't go too far into that as I wouldn't want to divulge any spoilers, but let me say that Briggs does it in a fantastically tactful way. Through her stories she shows us the true power of the female spirit and how even under horrific circumstances, everyone can find that little spark within themselves that signifies a survivor.

Mercy, a Walker, can shift into a coyote at will. Raised and now courted by werewolves, she lives a hazardous life trompsing through a supernatural world, all the while maintaining herself as an awesome mechanic. In Bone Crossed we learn a little bit more about the Mercy Thompson world and more specifically about the vampires that threaten Mercy's existence. Will she perish? Will she be able to protect those she cares about or will she be doomed to suffer their deaths?
