BOOK OF THE WEEK – BEG FOR MERCY by SHANNON DERMOTT
BEG FOR MERCY
by Shannon Dermott
Everyone dreams of that first kiss. Of that magic moment when your lips finally meet those of that special person you’ve waited your whole life for. A little awkward, a little scary, a little hot and every bit amazing. We speculate that the whole world will shake and time will just stop. No one, however, ever imagines that kiss to bring Death himself knocking.
Sixteen year old Mercy Moore’s life just got more complicated. The kiss that originally could have meant she would finally have a boyfriend now was the kiss that could have very nearly ended his life. A small detail her mother conveniently never told her will take her life for an abrupt u-turn. Dating, no love, was now completely and utterly impossible. And the boy well, that boy would never be the same.
But life, however cruel, goes on. Far too soon for her taste, Mercy finds herself at a senior party with the elite students of her school and her best friend. And of all things, playing a stupid game that could very well mean the death of someone in that small room. If it were not for her best friend, the hottest guys in school, and a small need to fit in, she may have been able to escape the disaster that was to come. Her worst nightmare, her personal curse, her very life, only gets dangerously worse.
This is a young adult paranormal romance novel.
I really, really loved this book. When I read the blurb I was expecting a typical story about a girl trying to come to terms with her succubus nature, but this was so much more than that. There were twists and turns in this book that I honestly did not see coming. The character development was excellent, and I loved every character in this book. I thought Mercy was a realistic teenager and found her very likable. I was flipping pages till the wee hours, and once I read the last sentence I breathed a sigh of satisfaction as the ending did not disappoint. I am going to settle down to read the next book in the series now. I need to know what happens next!
