Review: Iron Kissed by Patricia Briggs


I could smell her fear, and it satisfied something deep inside me that had been writhing under her cool, superior gaze. I curled my upper lip so she could get a good look at my sharp teeth. I might only weigh thirty or so pounds in my coyote shape, but I was a predator…

Mechanic Mercy Thompson can shift her shape – but not her loyalty. When her former boss and mentor is arrested for murder and left to rot behind bars by his own kind, it’s up to Mercy to clear his name, whether he wants her to or not.

Mercy’s loyalty is under pressure from other directions, too. Werewolves are not known for their patience, and if Mercy can’t decide between the


This book started off slow for me but let me tell you, it was worth the wait because when 50% came around…I was hooked. That is the point in the story when all things I have been hoping would happen…start to go into motion! I finally get some resolve in the love triangle…but let’s be real because that was never a possible “thing” to begin with. The story was action packed and I am finally starting to see a blend of romance and adventure, which the first two books lacked.

Samuel is absolutely wonderful and while I want him to have a HEA, I don’t want it to be with Mercy. Adam, well we all know I have an Achilles heel for alphas and I will go down with this ship…if I have to. Mercy, well she is a mixture of cares to much and drives me crazy. Half the time, the woman can’t make up her d*mn mind and the other half something is trying to kill her for what she decided on. Her stubbornness, while endearing and shows she has a big heart, it also makes me want to slap the sh*t out of her.

The ending…well that was particularly horrific and I never imagined that happening. I was in a stage of shock but also my heart was being ripped out. I didn’t know how to process it but at the same time, I couldn’t put the story down because I had to know if Mercy would be okay…could she get through this. The ending is also a slight cliff-hanger and not in the way you think. So help me if Bone Crossed doesn’t pick up where this book left off, I will lose it!
