Bone Crossed (Mercy Thompson #4) by Patricia Briggs

Bone CrossedSynopsis:

And she’s planning a return trip.

Marsilia, the local vampire queen, has learned that Mercy crossed her by slaying a member of her clan. Now, she’s out for blood. But since Mercy is protected from direct reprisal by the werewolf pack-and her relationship with its sexy Alpha-it’s not Mercy’s blood Marsilia is after…


My thoughts:

While I really enjoyed this 4th book in the series, I can’t say that I liked it as much as the previous ones. I’m not sure why I don’t like it as much , just that it was missing something. But by far not enough for me to dislike the book or the series.

In this book, Mercy is still struggling with the aftermath of Tim’s attack on and the whole book has kind of a darker note to it than the previous ones, which is understandable. It is not something people just get over fast, even walkers. Her and Adam are also trying to figure the relationship into it, dealing with the aftermath of Tim doesn’t help matters. But I did like how he gave her, her space and giving her time. But is there for her as well at the same time as she is figuring out how to fit into his pack.

This time she is really trying to stay out of trouble but trouble finds her anyways, and it is with the vampires again. I really am not a huge fan of Marsilia and would love to stake and burn her butt rather sooner than later. But Marsilla is not the only one Mercy has to worry about. Stefan, is not as bad but I still could live without him. But he is a rather big part of the book.

She also has to deal with some ghosts tis book and we learn that she has more powers as a walker than she thought she did.

I thought this book ended on a much lighter note than the last and the beginning of this book and I can’t wait to see what is in store for her in the next. 

Overall, I enjoyed this book quite a bit and rate it at 3 ½ ★




Some of my favorite quotes:

“Now you’re talking to inanimate objects,” I said out loud. “And believing they are listing to you. Get a grip, Mercy


“Thank you, Adam,” I told him. “Thank you for tearing Tim into small Tim bits. Thank you for forcing me to drink one last cup of fairy bug-juice so I could have use of both of my arms. Thank you for

being there, for putting up with me.” By that point I wasn’t laughing anymore. “Thank you for keeping me from being another of Stefan’s sheep—I’ll take pack over that any day. Thank you for making the

tough calls, for giving me time.” I stood up and walked to him, leaning against him and pressing my face against his shoulder.

“Thank you for loving me.”

His arms closed around me, pressing flesh painfully hard against

bone. Love hurts like that sometimes.”


“All right,” Mom said. She gave Samuel a stern look,”Now I don’t know what’s going on between you and my daughter and Adam Hauptman-“

“Neither do we,” I muttered

Samuel grinned “We have it pretty well worked out as far as the sex goes. Adam gets it-someday-and I don’t. But the rest is still up for negotiation.”



“Just a minute,” I told Adam. “I’m in the middle of a revelation.”
