Review:River Crossed by Patricia Briggs

Car mechanic Mercy Thompson has always known there was something different about her, and not just the way she can make a VW engine sit up and beg. Mercy is a shapeshifter, a talent she inherited from her long-gone father. She's never known any others of her kind. Until now.

An evil is stirring in the depths of the Columbia River-one that her father's people may know something about. And to have any hope of surviving, Mercy and her mate, the Alpha werewolf Adam, will need their help...

Mercy is not your typical badass heroine usually found in UF books. She's more like a Pitt Bull. Tenacious with a side order of stubborn as hell thrown in for good measure.  And she's also loyal to her loved ones to a fault and extremely protective. Love love loved the surprise that Jesse and Mercy's mom pulled on her with the rest of her friends and families help. 

Adam now is such and neat guy and great dresser. He's totally opposite Mercy in many ways but these two together just seem to click. Could be because under that exterior the interior contains its own monster. Adam is also extremely protective and as a were made even more so. but he loves Mercy enough to let her be herself which includes letting her fight monsters if needs be. And in this situation needs be. Love that we find out more about Mercy history and what she is and is not. Her help was some really interesting characters and I hope we learn more about some of them. And I must say that Ms. Briggs wrote a freaky and strange killer.  What with all that is going in this book it is one wild and fast read. Loved it. and I hope we see many more in this series. And maybe some  with the secondary characters as well.
I give is book a 5 star review and I paid for it myself for my own personal pleasure.
