Title: Bone Crossed
Author: Patricia Briggs
Series: Mercy Thompson/Mercyverse
Genre: Urban Fantasy
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’.
Oh and you thought the vampires were creepy as hell before? Well they just went and got creepier! They saw your thoughts as a challenge, my friends, and they came back badder than ever.
That being said, so did Mercy.
She is a total badass. The baddest around in fact,so far.
Her relationship with Adam is growing in this book, in a very natural and organic sort of way. Often you pick up the next book and the characters are all in but Patricia Briggs is allowing a slow progression that feels more real.
Her friendships are changing and evolving, and it feels more like family this time around with many of the secondary characters.
The villain in this is creepy as hell, and I found myself squirming in discomfort when he was on the page because damn, some people are just flat out maniacal and I don’t think I realized what that meant until now. Now I know. I partly wish I didn’t.
This is a solid installment in the Mercy-verse and I have no complaints to speak of.
Oh just one actually, more Warren please. It’s really more of a request than a complaint. I love that good ol’ country boy.
