Publisher's Summary

In a world where "witches, vampires, werewolves, and shape-shifters live beside ordinary people" (Booklist), it takes a very unusual woman to call it home. By day, Mercy Thompson is a car mechanic in Eastern Washington. By night, she explores her preternatural side. As a shape-shifter with some unusual talents, Mercy's found herself maintaining a tenuous harmony between the human and the not-so- human on more than one occasion. This time she may get more than she bargained for.

Have Mercy: listen to another Mercy Thompson chiller.

    "My Favorite so far"
    Would you listen to Bone Crossed again? Why?

    Yes! From start to finish this one was a real page turner.


    Have you listened to any of Lorelei King’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, just the mercy novels.She does a good job on this series.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Well, I actually listened to the entire book 4 and 5 in one sitting... Road trip FYI ( made 21 hours go by in a flash)


    Any additional comments?

    If anything, It's the characters. Patricia Briggs does an amazing job of creating characters that hold your interest and don't fall flat. So far I'm 5 books in yet the appearance of Fae, Vampires, Walkers, Werewolves, Witches, Ghost, Sorcerers and Zombies looming about doesn't make it feel bogged down or locked. In contrast, it still feels open with an air of "what else is out there?"

    We finally meet mom.

    I really like Stephan, though Bran is also a favorite.

    Sure.

    I liked that Mercy's previous trauma is something she has to get over and not just glossed over as if she is invincible.

    "Series keeps getting better"

    Really enjoy this series so far. And the narrator Lorelei King is absolutely excellent - she can do many accents in different voices - even male voices that make you believe many people are doing the narrating . Right up there with Davina Porter and Jim Dale, IMHO

    NUMBER OF HEARTS: 4 1/2
    Bone Crossed finds us back in Mercy’s world after the events of Iron Kissed with Mercy not herself anymore. She has forever changed and it is making the people around her change too. But the one thing that hasn’t changed is the wolf's need to protect her. Mercy will need all the help from her friends in this book. Because this time the Vampire Queen has Mercy in her cross hairs.
    I enjoyed this book. I liked the way that Ms. Briggs tackled the events from book 3 and how Mercy is learning to cope. How Adam and the other are learning to help her too. Adam is so sweet and understanding. I love that Mercy and Ben are becoming better friends (because I am really liking Ben). We get to see a lot more of Stefan in Bone Crossed. He is not at his best and the Wolf’s have to save him a time or two. But we learn just how much he cares about Mercy. Well care might not be the right word for a vampires obsession. But I believe deep down Stefan might really be a good guy. And honestly if Marsilia wasn’t so evil and trying to always kill Mercy I think she would be pretty awesome.

    If you have never tried an audio book you really should think about picking up this series. Ms. King is so amazing. The level of skill that this woman has is unreal. There are times with Adam, Stefan, Samuel or really any of them are talking that I totally forget that it is Lorelie narrating!! That right there my friends is the sign of a great narrator!!!

    "Not much of a stand alone piece"

    if this was the first book in the series I would not have continued listening. The story was not as developed as previous books and introduce next to nothing for the ongoing story.

    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this book even more during this re-read. This is definitely one of my all time favorite series and I honestly believe that everyone who hasn't read these books yet should run to the bookstore right away and buy them up. This is the fourth book in the Mercy Thompson series and it picks up right after the events of the previous book. It is really important that this series be read in order since some of the events are carried over from the previous book. I really had a lot of fun with this audiobook.

    On major focus of this Adam and Mercy's relationship. They both really do care for each other and want to make things work. I like how carefully they are with each other. Mercy is a mess after the horrible events of the previous book and Adam is there for her. He really wants to help with her pain and if he could I am sure he would take it away.

    The mystery in the story is centered around vampires. I like the vampires in this world so that works out well for me. The local vampires have painted crossed bones on the door at her garage and she decides it would be a good idea to get out of town for a bit. Her friend from college has a little problem with a ghost so Mercy goes to help...and runs into more than she bargained for. Stefan plays a large role in this book and really proved how much he cares for Mercy as well.

    I love Lorelei King's narration of this series. I am amazed by how well she voices all of these characters and keeps things consistent from book to book. The emotional aspects of the story really come through during her narration. I was able to listen to this book for hours at a time largely due to her wonderful delivery of this story. Lorelei King is quickly becoming one of my favorite narrators.

    I would highly recommend this series to other. This was my second time experiencing this book and I hope to read it again in the future. It is really that good.
