BONE CROSSED

Bone Crossed by Patricia Briggs
Book 4 in the Mercy Thompson series

Genre: urban fantasy

Verdict: Getting predictable

Spoilers Alert!!!

I just knew that The Walking Stick will kill James Blackwood! Patricia Briggs is getting predictable. Still a good read. At least better than the last one, this one did not end with a cliffhanger... The story-telling quality is sweeping, a 5 out of 5. So I did enjoy this book. A lot. But this book is not as good as P Briggs's previous work. Over all, I gave this book a 4 out of 5.

Caption at the back cover:
There was I thinking a shifter has its upsides. Looks like I was wrong.

Car mechanic and sometime shapeshifter Mercy thompson has learned - the hard way - why her race was almost exterminated. When European vampires emigrated to North America, they found Mercy's people had a hidden talent for vampire slaying. Unfortunately for Mercy, the queen of the local vampire seethe has discovered her true identity.

The undead queen is also furious when she learns that Mercy has crossed her and killed one of her own. Mercy may be protected from direct reprisals by the werewolf pack (and her interesting relationship with the Alpha), but that just means that Marsilia will come after Mercy some other way. So Mercy had better prepare to watch her back.

Cherry's Rating: 4 out of 5 cherries

I totally never thought of the walking stick killing James! After it happened though I was a little peeved that Mercy wouldn't have thought about it. Good thing she didn't though, other wise the walking stick would have returned the favor or whatever, right? Haha... I don't know. Great review, woman =)
