Review of Bone-Crossed
Yes, yes, another badass supernatural heroine book. I do have a type. However, some of these urban fantasy authors are better than others, and Patricia Briggs knows how to write them! I read this one very quickly...devoured it, really.
Mercy Thompson is just your everyday mechanic/shapeshifter (she can turn into a coyote) who talks to ghosts and is friends with werewolves, vampires, and fae. In this latest installment, Mercy is still recovering from being attacked by a lunatic (from the end of the last book in the series) and has also just consented to be the mate of the Alpha of the local werewolf pack. While dealing with all of that, she learns that the local vampire seethe (which is really such a cool term for a gang of vampires) is out to kill her. And finally, Mercy hears from an old friend with a ghost problem; her investigation of that problem of course lands Mercy into deeper waters.
I loved it. It was a very fun, fast read, and you know how I like the bad girls. ;-). Recommended for urban fantasy fans. I'm actually considering introducing Mr. T to this series, the books are that good.
