An electric combination of angels, mystery and romance, MERCY is the first book in a major new paranormal series.
There’s something very wrong with me. I can’t remember who I am or how old I am, or even how I got here. All I know is that when I wake up, I could be any one. It is always this way. There’s nothing I can keep with me that will stay. It’s made me adaptable. I must always re-establish ties. I must tread carefully or give myself away. I must survive.
Mercy doesn’t realize it yet, but as she journeys into the darkest places of the human soul, she discovers that she is one of the celestial host exiled with fallen angel, Lucifer. Now she must atone for taking his side. To find her own way back to heaven, Mercy must help a series of humans in crisis and keep the unwary from getting caught up in the games that angels play. Ultimately she must choose between her immortal companion, Lucifer, and a human boy who risks everything for her love.
When I first started reading this, I couldn’t help getting that old TV show Quantum Leap out of my mind. If you aren’t familiar with the show, some scientists were working on an experiment and one accidentally leaped out of his body and he leaped into others throughout time. He had limited amount of time to spend in that host body. He would then try to fix glitches in history of things that shouldn’t have happened or to make sure that things that were supposed to happened did.
Other then jumping into other people’s bodies, that is where the similarities end though. Mercy had to make sure that no one found out that she was one of the fallen angels. So she would do what she could to remain inconspicuous. That was until she popped into the body of Carmen.
Carmen was in a student exchange program through her schools choir and was going to stay with the Daly’s for a short period of time. However, the Daly’s were going through an upheaval in their lives. They daughter went missing 2 years ago and is presumed dead. The Daly’s are trying to get on with their lives the best they can. However, their son Ryan doesn’t believe his sister is dead.
So Mercy, under the guise of Carmen, assists Ryan in trying to find out the truth about what happened to his sister.
This was such a well written, fun book to read. I know that she has three lined up for this series. I can’t wait to read the next one.
