Set in a small backward town Local girl Mercy Brown is a misfit teen who along with her bookworm bestie Amanda is just trying to survive high school unscathed.
Enter misunderstood broody vampire Sebastien; the mysterious pale new boy in town; who genuinely seems to like Mercy for herself, which is actually quite a plus-point in his favour.
Sebastien and his vampire family have arrived in this backwater town with there own secret agenda at play one that Sebastien himself is not fully on board with.
It's not long after they have settled here that events really start to escalate; soon spiralling out of all control and Mercy, Sebastien and Amanda are left fighting for there very existence.
So this was a short read with some mildly amusing Twilight references.
I did enjoy myself a lot but because this was so brief it was somewhat difficult at times to fully connect with what was going on.
Mercy as a character was fabulous; a real kick-butt feisty female.
Sebastien himself was harder to get a handle on I didn't really feel we got to know that much about him here; mainly just unimportant surface stuff.
I'm hoping that we will get to connect and dig much deeper with him in part 2.
Some of the characters used here did come across as a tad one-dimensional as well and how this was eventually wrapped up was also a trifle rushed for My taste also and could have done in my opinion with a tad more fleshing out overall.
I just felt this was quite a slow burn story them BAM!!!
everything then just kind of happened at once; really snowballing.
If "Mercy Brown" had been a longer read I think it would have worked out much better in the long run; it just wasn't lengthy enough to do it the actual justice it deserved.
Saying that I still enjoyed this like a lot and really can't wait to see what happens in the next instalment.
This was a read that definitely kept me on my toes throughout.
Before I go just want to mention that transcript at the end of this book about "Mercy Brown" being an actual real person; so fascinating; such a nice touch indeed.
Also, the front cover here was so very eye-catching; really loved it.
Thank You to the Author for providing me with an ARC copy of "Mercy Brown (Mercy Brown, #1)" of which I have reviewed voluntary.
All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
Then, vampires seize her town. Despite feeling hurt by the townspeople of Goodsprings and her classmates, she steps out of the shadows and fights for them. Mercy discovers her inner strength and despite some pretty serious setbacks, she emerges triumphant, evolving from victim to victor.
Mercy Brown is a wonderful coming of age tale about a young woman who takes destiny into her own hands and becomes her own heroine, all while fighting off vampires, and pursuing a romantic relationship. It’s a fun, action-packed read with a vivid setting, and well-developed characters worth rooting for. It was tragic, but funny at times. The ending was amazing, and I’m greatly anticipating the next installment. And that “health alert notice” in the appendix was brilliant.
Highly recommended to fans of vampire reads with kick-butt heroines!
The plot was well thought out, the setting felt like home (I live in a rural town myself so could relate), and the characters were balanced. There were the popular ‘mean girls’, and then there were the vampires, or ‘posh rich kids’.
Tiki Kos’ take on vampires was extremely interesting. Their qualities more attuned to a plague than the whole romanticized sparkly god/dess stuff you’re used to reading when it comes to vampires.
All in all, it’s a great read, it’s fast paced, and it held quite a few jaw-dropping moments. If you enjoy paranormal fantasy or urban fantasy, then this book is what you’re looking for.
I'm new to Tiki Kos and this novella was definitely a good one to break my teeth on.
I thought that the storyline flows really well,it was well written and very engaging.
I can't wait to read the next instalment and I'm hoping I won't have to wait too long as I'm gagging for more of this story.
I need to know what has happened with Sebastien and Amanda and if Mercy gets to them in time.
Mercy and Sebastien had a very interesting dynamic and I couldn't get enough of their story and binge read it in one sitting.
I really enjoyed reading this novella and I think you should buy/borrow this book asap.
I'm voluntarily reviewing an advanced reader copy of this novella.

This book is amazing, I’m hooked. I would say it’s a cross of walking dead and vampire diaries.Read more
