Mercy Thompson: Hopcross Jilly (2015) Patricia Briggs and Tom Garcia

Mercy-Thompson-Hopcross-JillyI’m a huge fan of the Mercy Thompson series, and also love Patricia Briggs’ short stories, so although I didn’t love the first Mercy Thompson graphic novel I read, I got this because I do like her short stories.

This story puts a great deal of focus on Jesse–Adam’s daughter who goes to the local high school. I like Jesse, but I don’t love spending any time in high school, which is where much of this story takes place.

The other thread of the story involves the Pack finding bodies–bodies that turn out to be older children and teenagers.

I still don’t much care for the way Mercy and Adam are drawn (and especially Zee, who looks ridiculous), but I thought they did a good job with Jesse, and I did enjoy the story.
Rating: 7/10
