Mercy by Rebecca Lim Review

Name: Mercy
Publisher: Hyperion Books
Release Date: October 19th, 2010
288 pages

A fallen angel haunted by her past. Yearning for her immortal beloved. Forever searching for answers.Who will show her Mercy?

Mercy has lost herself. She can’t count how many times she’s “woken up” in a new body, and assumed a new life, only to move on again and again. During the day she survives in the human world on instinct and at night her dreams are haunted by him. Mercy’s heart would know him anywhere. But her memory refuses to cooperate.

But this time is different. When Mercy wakes up she meets Ryan, an eighteen year old reeling from the loss of his twin sister who was kidnapped two years ago. Everyone else has given up hope, but Ryan believes his sister is still alive. Using a power she doesn’t fully comprehend, Mercy realizes that Ryan is right. His sister is alive and together they can find her. For the first time since she can remember, Mercy has a purpose; she can help. So she doesn’t understand why the man in her dreams cautions her not to interfere. But as Ryan and Mercy come closer to solving the dark mystery of his sister’s disappearance, danger looms just one step behind.

Will Mercy be able to harness her true self and extraordinary power in time?

The first in a dazzling new series, Mercy masterfully weaves romance, mystery and the supernatural into a spell-binding tale.

My Review:

Overall, this was an average book. Nothing in it really stood out to me as amazing. What I did really like about the book was that Mercy "wakes up" in a new body, not really remembering who she is. I wish the novel was more about Mercy figuring out who she was and why she is this way then trying to fit in in her new body.

I did really like the character Ryan in the book. He was willing to do anything to find his twin sister and I really liked that part about him.

This book was not really for me, but I might give the second book another chance!

My Rating: Three out of Five Stars
