If there is one reason why I love this series - MERCY THOMPSON…

I want to be her best friend. She’s an amazing character – brave, strong, humble, feisty, loyal, and she’s a mechanic with a fabulous car!!!!
And then there’s her relationship with wolf shape shifter, Adam Hauptman!!! He’s a total alpha male…possessive, arrogant, brave but he doesn’t take over Mercy’s life……….he respects and admires her…and of course he’s totally in love with her…..swoon….what a man!!!

Another satisfying installment in the Mercy series, although there was somewhat of the flavor of an in-between book about it. That's not really a criticism from me; when you are in a series for the long haul, it makes sense to take a breather and deal with all the events your characters have faced as well as integrate a feel of the everyday into their lives. At the end of Iron Kissed, there were at least two significant events that needed follow-up and I would have been disappointed in Briggs as ...more

Patricia Briggs continues to impress me with her oh-so expressive writing that conveys so much, so economically. I am truly in awe of her talent. Clearly I am very behind on this series. It's not due to a lack of appeal, but due to my reading style and my review reading taking up a lot of my reading time. But I do love knowing that I have a guaranteed read when I reach for one of her books.

Mercy is definitely near the top of my list of fictional characters I think I would love to have as a frien

Final review, first posted on www.FantasyLiterature.com:

Mercy Thompson, a part-Native American coyote shapeshifter or walker, and full-time mechanic, is still dealing with the emotional aftermath of events in Iron Kissed, but at least she and the local werewolf Alpha, Adam, are on the right track now. Unfortunately for them, their relationship plans promptly get interrupted: Marsilia, the mistress of the local vampire clan or “seethe” (I love that word), has found out that Mercy acted contrary t

Great PNR series. If you loved the Fever series and the Kate Daniels series, you'll love Mercy Thompson (and Adam...yum).

Mercy, mercy, Mercy! Patricia Briggs latest Mercy Thompson novel "Bone Crossed" kept me on the edge of my seat, furiously reading to find out what happened next! There's good news and bad news in Mercy's latest adventure and just when you think things will settle down, BAM, there's someone new looking to mess with Mercy's peace.

Mercy is still recovering from her brutal rape at the hands of a fae 'possessed' wacko. Mercy managed to kill the b^%tard, but it will be a while before the psychological

I really liked this book, this series gets better and better actually. The cast is filling out nicely, and although there were a few plot twists that were a little obscure, whatever. Nice emotional arc for the character, I really enjoyed it, hardback purchase justified!!

I enjoyed this book even more during this re-read. This is definitely one of my all time favorite series and I honestly believe that everyone who hasn't read these books yet should run to the bookstore right away and buy them up. This is the fourth book in the Mercy Thompson series and it picks up right after the events of the previous book. It is really important that this series be read in order since some of the events are carried

*** 4 ***

This installment in the Mercy world seemed to be more of a refining and a bridging book. After the horrible and devastating experiences Mercy had in the last book, the author decided that she, as well as us, the readers, need a bit of recovery and regrouping time. She does that by slowing the pace a bit and letting Mercy and the wolfs work on developing their relationship. She also found a way to intensify Stephan's connection with the little coyote (poor vampire had to go through real
