Mercy has never quite fit into her life but when her own mother attempts to kill her, she struggles to deal with the after effects and the fact that her life begins changing at a rapid rate. Hidden secrets and past lives start to catch up with her the closer she gets to her 18th birthday.
Finding out she is a witch was the last thing she expected and she is trying hard to catch up on training to enable her to use her new found powers.
She no longer knows who to trust. New “friends” aren’t what they seem and old friends make drastic changes. She doesn’t even know who she is anymore. She has her aunt and uncle helping her adjust to her new world but even they don’t know the whole truth.
Finding out exactly what she is takes her on a dangerous journey that puts everyone she loves in peril. Decisions she makes can mean life or death of not only herself, but of everyone around her. She has now become the hunted. She needs to find a way to concentrate on doing what is right without hurting anyone but if it will help her in the end remains to be seen.
This is a fast moving, smooth flowing, paranormal read with twists and turns that keep you guessing as to what’s next for Mercy and her makeshift coven. I was hooked from the very first page and lost sleep trying to finish it. lol I completed the book in less than 24 hours, it’s THAT good. I’m anxiously awaiting the next book and will grab it as soon as it’s out.
I very much appreciate the author not skimping on character and plot development by including word-wasting graphic sex. There is no crude language. There is some violence, given certain vampires see humans only as food. It is not graphic and it is not glorified, even when it's necessary for self-defense.
Excellent. I don't mind editing misses; I get too wrapped up in the story. I do notice them, though, and did not spot any in this book.
The author's writing is really good, complex, and full of new ideas. There is an epic ending, complex plot, and the author explores human relationships and self sacrifice, as well as repercussions of selfish actions/choices and bad decisions.
The main character not lovable immediately but because of her growth, selflessness, determination and inner strength, Mercy makes you love her. She starts as a typical young woman, clueless of the alternative world around her, and grows into a strong, skilled warrior with a purpose. She also lives through hell in the process.
There are several interesting characters next to her. One is mysterious Dorian, who is lovable and amazing, and I have a feeling the author will bring him forth more in the next book. Then there is Caleb, whose intentions are good but the way he goes about realising them is all kinds of wrong. I did not like him from the start and I am still hoping he will come to his senses in the next book.
As I mentioned already, so much happens in this book. The author develops the world and characters and sets the scene for continuation. The ending was quite shocking, and I loved it so much. Mainly because of Caleb's reaction and the turning point in Mercy's life. I immediately started reading the next book. Can't wait to see what happens next.
The story continues in The Dark Underworld.
Mercy gets a crash course in the world of monsters and she must figure out who is on her side and who isn’t. How to stop those she loves and herself from becoming the next victims. But the answers are not black and white.
DL Blade has created a storyline that is mysterious, suspenseful and action-packed with so many fantastic twists and turns. This story hooked from the beginning and held me until the end!
I also enjoyed that interaction with the characters was not the usual teenage angst that you get with a lot of YA novels.
I can not wait to start the next book in this series. I absolutely give this 5 stars!
Top international reviews
Mercy doesn’t like to be touched. Not even by her best friend who is in love with her. The events in her past haunt her. Unfortunately for her, she’s running out of time. Her past and future are about to collide. Everyone has secrets but what if you couldn’t remember yours?
Caleb is a stranger. One who seems to be there when she needs someone, but maybe there is something more about him. Could he hold all the answers or more questions?
Mercy finds it hard to trust, but wouldn’t you if your mum turned on you? Mercy is a powerful witch and her awakening is coming. It is something she can stop. Her mother’s betrayal is about to cut even deeper. The problem is who can you trust when everyone has secrets?
The dark awakening has some good twist points and the world created promises for more.
This is the start of a series. This is a suspense novel which will keep you guessing. This is only the beginning. With 3 books in the series this offers a paranormal world with mystery, adventure and potential romance.
