I've never been certain I'm human Oh, the X-rays and blood tests are normal, and most people have no reason to suspect I'm more than I appear to be. But if I tell you to do something? You do it -- no ifs, ands or buts. I call my power the "press." My name is Mercy Hollings, and if you think that having the power to control people makes my life easy, you're dead wrong. Because when I get angry, everyone around me is at risk -- Sukey, my friend who has frightening taste in men; my clients, who, ironically, come to be for help; my neighbors, who regard me as a loner; and Sam, a man who wants to know my darkest secret. I have hurt people in the past, and I don't want that to happen again. But now a powerful stranger is threatening the new life that I've made for myself. And I'm afraid my anger is taking over.
What I thought:
This was a nice change from other paranormal books. Mercy has a gift, but not everyone around her is different. It was a bit different with the Rocko story, and I liked the storyline of something that happens in real life being involved in this paranormal novel. It was a nice breath of fresh air as I read it.
I liked the characters, for the most part, but I didn't get to see a whole lot of Sam to see if I really like him. I'm hoping to read more about him in the next novel to really make up my mind if I like him or not.
I have a feeling the hunt for Mercy's past will go through a few books and I'm excited to see where it goes. I'm not sure what to classify this novel as, it has paranormal elements but it isn't set heavily in a paranormal world.
Hey guys! I'm a big fan of reading and writing. I have been writing my own little reviews on shelfari and decided to try my own blog. I love all kinds of books, mystery, paranormal romance, urban fantasy, young adult, erotica, historical romances and just any romance book.
I own a Kindle and love browsing Amazon for free ebooks as well as getting my favorite authors and series on my portable library system. This has changed the way I read. I have gone to a couple books a month to a couple books a week.
