Book four in the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs: Bone Crossed, and here’s my review! There’s a “Read More,” since I don’t want to spoil the book for anyone, especially if they haven’t yet read the book.
“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…”
I was so excited to read Bone Crossed, I’m not even kidding. I have no idea where this series is going to go, and I have quite a few books to read before I’m up to date with everything.. But I do know that I am up and along for the ride.
Bone Crossed was a quick read. More so that usual. The book is thin compared to the last few books, and to have Bone Crossed as a small book, I finished this book within a few hours. I read half of the book one night, got up the next morning and finished it.
As the last few books have gone, we usually get to know the down-low on the story very quickly. That was no exception with Bone Crossed. Since Bone Crossed started where Iron Kissed left off, we got to know what this book would be about fast than normal!
I wanted to know how Iron Kissed left off, and because Bone Crossed started where Iron Kissed left off, we did get to know what happened! Not what I wanted though.. I will admit that Bone Crossed kind of feels like a filler for the next book Silver Borne though.
In Bone Crossed there are characters that we meet, characters that we say “bye” to, not that it really matters though, because they were a side character. And that we barely saw them anyway. …I didn’t know what to expect, and I had my suspicions as to who it was that was bothering Mercy. Now that I’ve finished the book though, I can honestly say that I’m an idiot for not suspecting it, because it was right there before my eyes. And secondly, there’s a unresolved issue that I HOPE is featured in the next instalment.
And right when I thought I had this book under wraps, there’s a huge change of events! And holy crap, Stefan is seeming more and more human with every book I read.
I’m starting to realize that theres certain theme with every book, and that Briggs is recycling the themes over and over again. Which I don’t mind…it’s just going to be tiring. Bone Crossed was about the vampires, and Silver Borne will be about the werewolves, and then I can guess that the next book after Silver Borne will be about the Fae.
Nevertheless, I enjoyed this book, and am looking forward to reading Silver Borne. …Whenever it arrives at my library. — Briggs’ writing is still very addicting, and I was quickly warped into Mercy’s world.
Thanks for reading my review!
