Wee-view: Mercy

2¢ Worth: Laurie Faria Stolarz called Mercy by Rebecca Lim, "A modern day Quantum Leap with angels". I could not agree more. This story starts with a fallen angel (named Mercy) bouncing into a new body and then helping the hot (emotionally distant) Ryan race against the clock to solve the case of his missing choir girl twin sister. But then it evolves into something enigmatic, dark, and mysterious with mounting tension, danger, and a twisted ending that left me wanting more for and from Mercy. 4 stars

Whine: While Mercy herself fascinated me, it took me awhile to connect with her. Oh and why oh why didn't she just kiss Ryan? Grrrr!

Whippersnappers: Profanity and mentions to sex, abuse, and rape.

  1. Lovely review! So are you saying she NEVER gets around to kissing him? Really? Is there a second book?

  2. Have had this one on my radar for a little bit now. The cover is striking and story sounds decent but what's this? A non-kiss ending? Egad! (Thanks for the share!)

  22. I must say I'm curious about reading an angel book. I think I would enjoy that more than a vampire. Your review, as usual, makes me want to read the book like right now.

  26. I think I'll pass on this one. As great as it sounds, I always end up hating angel books. Not really sure why. I'm glad you liked it, though! :)

  27. I'm definitely intrigued! Makes me curious about what might happen in the subsequent sequel(s) that might have me picking it up. I'll have to check into it! Love these wee-views! :o)

  33. Wee-view?! That is possibly one of the cutest things I've ever heard. Also, Quantum Leap was the only thing I watched for an entire summer when I was younger. Definitely think I have to pick this one up. Thanks for the review! :)

  34. Alexis & Cherry: It is a series. So far I think it's going to be 4. I think her love for Ryan is going to keep her going so let's hope one day she finally reaches him.

    Laura: Ooooo I can't wait for you to review it!

    Bumpsintheroad: Mission accomplished :)

    Precious: Thanks! I hope you like it.

    Gina Precious: Why thank you darling!

    Christina: Right? Do you think you will continue with the series?

    Meredith: Yay!

    Bere: That is a sweet cover but I think it's almost too sweet for who Mercy as a character really is so far. :) Great find!

    Julie Swell: It has an exciting beginning so once you start, it will be easy to keep going :) Good luck!

    Bermuda: A bit yes but I think the next book should help :)

    Jenny Girl: They do don't they? It's nice to have a fallen female angel too.

    BookBelle: Most definitely!

    Cherry: Thank you sweet pea ;) You're the best!

    Carrie Hammock: Definitely intense but a good intense.

    Penelope L.: Really? Never liked one?

    Alyssa: Silly girl? I woulda just grabbed him.

    Kim Butterfly: Yes! and Yes! I really liked it too. It surprised me and I do think they are out in the UK already.

    Kathy: No prob! Your blog is delightful! :)

    Cara: *smile* Thanks! :) I stilllll love Quantum Leap. Odd fact about me: I loved Al. I had a total crush on him for some reason.

    Emily: Hey you! Thanks for coming by. I think you would really dig it!
