Quickie Review: Dark Mercy by Zoe Winters

Dark Mercy (Preternaturals) by Zoe Winters
Synopsis (Goodreads):
1955, Las Vegas, Nevada

Angeline has been on the run from her sire, Linus, for centuries. She’s tired, and she’s lonely. High from mescaline-induced blood, she sees a sign—a church that seems to glow in the distance—and she knows. Her future mate is in that building.

Important Author’s Note:
Dark Mercy is the beginning of Hadrian and Angeline’s story, not the end. Their HEA will happen later in their own full-length novel. This story is important both for the overall series and for this couple, but it’s not their HEA. Just a mild disclaimer so no one goes in with false expectations for this story.
My Thoughts: If I hadn't read the author's note beforehand and known that this book doesn't give us a HEA, I probably would have been aghast at this ending. It's dark and not very pretty but there is some great setup for Hadrian and Angeline's story to come. I can only imagine the many different paths Zoe Winters can take us on with the information she's given us here. It's going to be fun. And hopefully dirty.

I like both of those things.

  1. Would you read their book if it wasn't dirty? That is the question I'd like to know.

    1. You ask the tough questions, Amanda. I... would. *nods* Yes, I would. But I'm not worried about the dirty. It'll be there.
