Bone Crossed (Mercedes Thompson, #4)Title: Bone Crossed
Author: Patricia Briggs
Series: Mercedes Thompson #1
Date Published: 5th Febuary 2009

By day, Mercy is a car mechanic in the sprawling Tri-Cities of Eastern Washington. By night, she explores her preternatural side. As a shapeshifter with some unique talents, Mercy has often found herself having to maintain a tenuous harmony between the human and the not so human. This time she may get more than she bargained for.

Marsilia, the local Vampire Queen, has learned that Mercy crossed her by slaying a member of her clan—and she's out for blood. But since Mercy is protected from direct reprisal by the werewolf pack (and her close relationship with its sexy Alpha), it won't be Mercy's blood Marsilia is after.

It'll be her friends'

Review:  The last book ended with Mercy being raped and her friend Zee being is let out of jail. And finally Mercy deciding that Adam is the one and only mate for her ( woop).

This book starts with the Vampires coming back on the seane, with Stefan  turning up in Mercy's living room hurt so badly that he is all dead, well as dead as a vamp can get.There werewolves come to his aid and offer him there blood and feeding him,While this is going on, someone turns up at Mercy's door and asks for her help with a ghost problem there have.
The next day Mercy turns up at work tiered from the nights events to find her shop has been vandalised with graffiti and some some crossed bones, which every one thinks its a death threat.  So every one thinks its a good idea for her to get out of town, so her friend needing help is a good excuse. But while she is there she comes across one of the strongest vamps there is and finds her self getting bitten and in his control. To get out of is control she ends up getting bitten by another vampire (Stefan). Adam her mate isn't happy about this. When they finally get home they are sent for by the head of the vampires and Mercy take the stand and it ends up with two vampires and a human getting killed.  Mercy ends up becoming closer to Adam and they make there mating a step further  and taking the final steps. More happens with the other vampire but I really don't want to tell you the whole story, just know that it is amazing.

Over all view:

Yippee I loved it, I really haven't read one of the books in this series that I haven't liked/loved. The characters are amazing, there werewolves are werewolves and the vampires are vampires, theres none of this mushy stuff, they are fierce and wild and yes you should be scared of them, but that's what I love. Dark and brooding yummy.  The story line to this book was amazing it was action packed and had you at the end of your seat. you couldn't help but read it all.  I said this in my last Review but Briggs has got a winner with this series, iv not spoke to one person who hasn't liked it. and I am at the top of the list.In this series along with all the scary stuff we see how Mercy deals with the rape that happens in the last book. I think Briggs explained things very well. Overall I loved it and everyone must read this book/series.
