Bone Crossed by Patricia Briggs

Synopsis: Car mechanic and sometime shapeshifter Mercy Thompson has learned, the hard way, why her race was almost exterminated. When European vampires immigrated 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. She's also furious when she learns Mercy has crossed her and killed one of her vampires. Mercy may be protected from direct reprisals by the werewolf pack (and her interesting relationship with its Alpha), but that just means Marsilia will come after Mercy some other way. So Mercy had better prepare to watch her back.

My Thoughts: This is the 4th Mercy Thompson book and well worth the wait! Among all the paranormal fiction available today this series shines. The characters are engaging, some likable, some not and others you just don't know about. The two main story lines kept it moving right along. I like Adam even better. He is the Alpha but he is kind and sensitive to Mercy's needs. If you have read the other books and liked them I know you will enjoy this one. If you haven't then maybe you should .

I'll add this author to my list. I've tried a couple of new sci-fi authors lately--some I like and a couple I won't bother with again.

Thanks for your insights; you are very helpful.
