Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

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. (Feb.)

Review

“The preternatural culture of vampire seethes and wolf pack politics is deeply intriguing. Briggs provides plenty of detail about Mercy's complex world.”—Publishers Weekly

“Mercy is not just another cookie-cutter tough-chick urban fantasy heroine; she's got a lot of style and substance and an intriguing back-story. Series fans will appreciate the resolution of some ongoing plot lines, and the romantic tension is strong.”—Library Journal

5.0 out of 5 stars Creative Deeds Reads Review
By creativedeeds on October 20, 2020
I have quite a few Urban Fantasy favorites on my “must read” list. The more I read in the Mercy Thompson world, the higher it moves on that list. ❤

There’s a lot going on in Bone Crossed. Mercy is still recovering from the events that nearly destroyed her in Iron Kissed. She wants to be back to normal, but it isn’t as easy as she wants it to be. Luckily, she’s surrounded by people who understand that even more than she does. They are there to love and support her in any way that she needs – especially Adam.

Mercy has gained herself some pretty powerful allies, but she has also more than a few powerful enemies. Some are obvious, while others seem to be hiding in the shadows waiting to pounce. Mercy’s a loyal friend though and she proves once again that she’ll do whatever she can to protect those she considers hers. Her trust in some of those people is put to the test in Bone Crossed.

Marsilia is at her worst in Bone Crossed, but there are even more dangers waiting for Mercy. Add to that the fact that not everyone in the Pack is happy about Adam mating with her and Mercy making some split minute decisions that she probably shouldn’t have… well, let’s just say that at times Bone Crossed was impossible to put down.

Next up for Mercy Thompson is Silver Borne. One good thing about getting hooked on an established series is that I don’t have to wait long to pick it up. 😉
