From Publishers Weekly
Shape-shifter Mercy Thompson has a complex life, juggling two werewolf lovers and a job working for a fae mechanic; things get even more hectic when her boss and mentor is arrested for killing a citizen of the fae reservation. As the fae seem content to let him rot, Thompson takes it on herself to clear her friend's name, beginning a lone-wolf investigation that may cost her life. Briggs's third novel featuring Thompson (after Blood Bound) is another top-notch paranormal mystery; her well-balanced contemporary world, where humans live uneasily among werewolves and fae, is still a believably lived-in world; the ever-present threat of government legislation against nonhumans (though familiar to X-Men fans) adds weight to her paranormal elements, and thoughtfully researched mythology adds rich detail. Thompson is a sharp, strong heroine and her lycanthropic love triangle is honest and steamy. Briggs never shies from difficult material, and she moves effortlessly from werewolf pack psychology to human legal proceedings, making this a tense, nimble, crowd-pleasing page-turner. (Jan.)

I'm really in love with that series and even if it was just for Mercy's attitude it would be worth reading the series, but of course there's much more then that! In that book Mercy will finally pull her love life together and make a pick, which is great, I've been holding my breath to know who she would finally end up with! We also get to see some of her weaker sides which is hard to bear at some point, makes her as real as it gets.
When I started reading the series the titles didn't quite make sense but now that I can see the bigger picture it all make sense. In the first book, Moon Called, Mercy dives in werewolves troubles. In the second, Blood Bound, she stirs problems with the vampires. Third, Iron Kissed, is about fae ( weak to iron). I wonder what will she get herself into in Bone Crossed.
