A blog dedicated to reviewing and promoting the books I love.
This book reminded me of how much I initially enjoyed this series! Everything was so interesting and kept me guessing throughout the story. I also liked how the story was told because (from the little I remember) the mercy-verse books don't usually switch character point of views.
Mercy proved to be an intelligent and skilled woman. I love how people underestimate her. I love it, even more, when she proves them wrong. I missed her humor in this novel though. It seemed that this story only included her in fight scenes and escaping places/people scenes.
Reading up on what Adam was doing while everything was hitting the fan with Mercy was entertaining. I adore how confident he is in her as a person and in her uncanny ability to survive what seems to be an impossible feat.
The ending with Bran was a surprise to me. Maybe there were hints dropped along the way before the reveal, but everything went over my head (if that's the case). I haven't read books in this series for a few years now and most of the storylines are one huge blur. Though it did get me thinking about Samuel and how I want a book or a series dedicated to him and his happily ever after.
The Audio Book:
The audio book narration was great! I've found yet another male narrator that doesn't give me a headache. I could tell all the characters apart in both narrations. In George Newbern's narration, I could even tell when females were speaking in contrast to male characters (which, strangely, has been difficult for me to find for the past few years that I've been listening to audio books).
