So we all know I went down a deep hole of reading these books! I read Redemption River, Resurection River, Reckless River, Ravaged River, Rebellious River, Ravished River. I loved them all and this is the next one in the series! As I say not highly important if you don’t read the other books in the Men of Mercy series but it would be so much better if you did. Again I love the dossier that we get at the beginning of these books so we know everyone who is on the team and what their role is!
Nightshade was a very interesting character, she was raised by who we know as Mr J and is Caroline’s twin sister. We start the book with Nightshade getting her orders to pretend to be her sister. Almost instantly Nightshade and Merc have a connection when he saves her, she was so strong and sassy and oh my god she was almost as good as Merc and the team was! After the bomb was denotated and Merc and Nightshade were taken I loved the fact that she was the one to save him. I also loved the sarcasm we got from her.
Merc oh I wish we learnt more about him but being that he didn’t know we didn’t know, I did love the small snippets of information we did get about them. I also loved how he was so protective over Nightshade and that when he did discover who she was he didn’t try to push her away he just still tried to protect him. I love Merc.
Nightshade is a good actor! Pretending to be Caroline, through this book my one question was who was the parents? Were Mr J the dad or was it the senator? We do get it answered but I’m not going to spoil that but I loved it. The plot wowed me it was so deep and it touches on so many things and you feel so bad for Nightshade and what she had to deal with. I was so sad for her so when she finally had happiness I was hoping she was holding onto it. Thankfully she did.
I loved this story I felt like Nightshade was the perfect person for Merc and it was so good!
