REVIEW: Bone Crossed – A Mercy Thompson series novel # 4 by Patricia Briggs

Bone Crossed is not on my top favorites list in this series.  Actually, it is probably my least favorite.

Mercy’s mother pays an unexpected visit due to the rape and murder from the previous book.  Ben, as weird and revealing as his character proved in the last book .. had a warm reaction to her presence.

But his attention was all for my mother.   (Ben’s)

“She’s married,” I warned him.  “And if you call her a rude name, she’ll shoot you with her pretty pink gun and I’ll spit on your grave.”

Adam said, “Ben.  Meet Mercy’s mother, Margi.”

That was the only highlight from this book.  I found it quite uninteresting.  Mercy struggles with the trauma of being raped.  Adam is patient. Understanding the fragile situation, he helps Mercy through her panic attacks.

An old friend of Mercy’s, Amber, invites Mercy to visit her home.  A ghost is haunting her son and her arrogant and stubborn husband believes that she and her son, Chad is making it up.

That’s basically the jest of the book.  There are some sweet moments.  I could go into them without spoiling anything .. but they are unworthy of typing 🙂

I dislike giving negative reviews, especially those pertaining to my favorite authors.  Nonetheless .. Bleh.

I recommend this book only to mature adults who are reading this series.  It would be confusing and boring to others.  Mild violence and implied sexual content without description.

~Happy reading!
