Book Jacket Summary
An electric combination of angels, mystery and romance, MERCY is the first book in a major new paranormal series.

There's something very wrong with me. I can't remember who I am or how old I am, or even how I got here. All I know is that when I wake up, I could be any one. It is always this way. There's nothing I can keep with me that will stay. It's made me adaptable. I must always re-establish ties. I must tread carefully or give myself away. I must survive.

Mercy doesn't realise it yet, but as she journeys into the darkest places of the human soul, she discovers that she is one of the celestial host exiled with fallen angel, Lucifer. Now she must atone for taking his side. To find her own way back to heaven, Mercy must help a series of humans in crisis and keep the unwary from getting caught up in the games that angels play. Ultimately she must choose between her immortal companion, Lucifer, and a human boy who risks everything for her love.

My Thoughts
Okay, if you are going to write a book about fallen angels this is how you do it! I was riveted to my Nook screen, desperate to flip forward a few pages. This story is told very well with an over arching plot that will easily last three books. You get a glimpse at the back story but it is a mystery that is slowly unraveling. I let out a NO! when I got to the last page. I do not usually do that, so I know I am going to enjoy this series.
Mercy is an excellently thought out character because she has "high jacked" Carmen's life and must navigate her life without make to many mistakes. She goes through the motions trying to figure out the life of her host and this is not the first time. Each time she tries to make their lives a little bit better, even though she is asked to do nothing by her love.
I really liked how there was a bit of a mystery involved, even though I knew who the bad guy was half way through. I am eagerly awaiting the next book and it should be coming out soon!
