I’ve always been the prey.
All seventeen-year-old Mercy Brown wanted to do was finish her last year of high school without any glitches. Now, vampires are tearing apart the small town of Goodsprings. While teaming up with her friends, Sebastien, the mysterious new boy, and Amanda, the book-crazed bestie, Mercy will learn a secret about herself and that blood really is thicker than water.
To catch a predator, I will become the hunter.
Tiki Kos’ dark and monstrous story tells a tale of a girl who loses everything but finds her true calling in a town where she was the outcast but is now the saviour.
Well This was an interesting read a fascinating take on the old YA favourite Trope of vampires.
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.
