*Squeeeeeee* I am a happy girl. And if you have read or are reading this series, you’ll know why. (One word – Adam) If you have yet to pick these books up, do it! Do it now!

“Bone Crossed”, the fourth installment in Patricia Briggs’ ‘Mercedes Thompson’ series, is the book where you finally receive some of the answers you’ve been desperately waiting for. Such as “will Marsilia ever find out that Mercy killed Andre?” and “what is going to happen with Mercy and Adam?” You start the story exactly where you left off at the end of “Iron Kissed”. Even the “So have you made up your mind?” is repeated! (That line makes me weak in the knees…) And if you think that the scene where Adam asks Mercy that life-changing question is charged with emotion, just wait until you read the rest of the book! You really feel for Mercy while you are experiencing the after effects of what happened to her in the last book. Her struggles just break your heart, but you know she’s a strong cookie and that she’ll be just fine. It’s just going to be a rough ride for her.

“Bone Crossed” brings you back to the vampires. You really learn to dislike Marsilia – more than you already do, I mean. And you visit with Stephan often. I really like him as a character. You already know that he can be a severe sob, but you also know he can be an absolute charmer. You really get to experience his entire spectrum in this book – and you get to feel really really sorry for him too. I just wanted to go pet his head and give him a big chocolate cookie – if he weren’t a vampire. Umm, and if he were real. Did I mention that you learn to dislike Marsilia even more?! Yeah, you really do.

And once again, I am in awe of Patricia Briggs. Does she ever write werewolves well! Every detail, from their magic to their culture, has been thought out and brought to the page. You really feel as though such beings could truly exist — as though the next totally delectable man who walks by you really could be shape shifter.

All in all, this book has left me blissful and satisfied. It has also left me wondering if there is ever going to be a time in her life where Mercy is not kidnapped or wanted for something, one way or another. I sure hope not, because I think that would mean the series is over and that we have no more Mercy to read about. And I do like me some more Mercy. And maybe Adam too – just a little! ;)
