Bone Crossed (A Mercy Thompson Novel)by Patricia Briggs
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!
Synopses & Reviews
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.
"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.)
"In the increasingly crowded field of kick-ass supernatural heroines, Mercy stands out as one of the best." Locus
"The best new urban fantasy series I've read in years." New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong
"I love these books." New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris
