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?

First Paragraph: There's something very wrong with me. 
Mercy was a little hard to get into at first, but around chapter two I really got into it. It's a great start to a new series, and very different from most of the angel books I've come across and read.

Mercy, who named herself because her real name is unknown, is a great character. She kind of annoyed me at first, but grew on me by the end of the book. I also really liked Ryan, I didn't think I would at first, but as soon as Mercy and him started really talking I started to like him. 

This book was originally published in Australia! What is it about these Australian authors? They know how to write some good books. :) 

I can't wait to get my hands on the second book, Exile. I'm really sad to see Ryan go because of Mercy's situation, but I'm looking forward to reading more about Mercy. 

I recommend this to any angel lovers who want a new unique story.

Cover: I really like this cover! It is absolutely gorgeous! Not sure about the cover artist at this time, but will definitely put who it is up as soon as I find out!


  1. I haven't seen this one yet. Thanks for the introduction.

  2. I loved this book because it was so different from any other angel book I've read; however I don't like this cover as much as others I've seen such as this one
