Book Review & Giveaway - Saving Mercy by Abbie Roads

Book review

Cain has a special gift, he can find murderers through a connection with the victim's blood. He isn't proud of what he can do and thinks he is a predator, a monster. He helps the FBI to solve cases, but he doesn't believe in his own goodness. Cain is a product of his father's grooming when he was a child. When a recent crime is being linked to the murders that made Cain's life change forever, Cain knows where to find more information, with Mercy, the only survivor of this crazy deed. Cain thinks he's the last person she wants to see, but he's the only one who can save her life.
Mercy has been a victim countless times, but she knows that as long as the people who are after her won't be able to touch her spirit she will heal. Someone who wants to harm her has locked her up and Cain is the only one who can get her out. Instead of recognizing him as the evil creature he thinks he is, Mercy thinks Cain belongs to her, they are bound by something powerful. While they're being chased they find each other. Do they have a chance together or will the awfulness that keeps following them win after all?
Mercy is strong, determined, selfless and incredibly brave. She's been through a lot, but as long as she's in control of her own mind nobody can break her. When she meets Cain she feels a connection and she can see his core. Both Mercy and Cain have a special gift and they understand one another. I love books about soul mates and Mercy and Cain are fabulous together. Cain is a kind and caring man, but he thinks he's something horrible on the inside. Mercy makes him aware of who he really is and I admired her for that. She protects Cain as much as he protects her and their bond is beautiful. It's been formed in terrible circumstances and Saving Mercy is a clear example of the idea that sometimes the greatest evil can also create something good and wonderful.
Saving Mercy is an incredibly creepy and compelling book. Abbie Roads writes about serial killers in a fantastic frightening way and she keeps playing with the boundaries between good and evil. I loved that about her story. She has a gripping writing style that always keeps me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end. Her main characters are unique and I love her detailed and creative descriptions of their personalities. Saving Mercy is dark, interesting, twisted and captivating. I read the story in one sitting, because I couldn't put it down. The story has many surprising twists and turns and some shocking scenes that genuinely spooked me. It has a terrific scary ending that's both fitting and mind-blowing. Saving Mercy is a very promising start of a new series, I highly recommend it and can't wait to read more.


 If you love gripping stories about main characters with special abilities who are battling against a great darkness that needs to be conquered you should definitely read Saving Mercy.
