The Merciless: A Review (The Merciless #1)


Forgive us, Father, for we have sinned

Brooklyn Stevens sits in a pool of her own blood, tied up and gagged. No one outside of these dank basement walls knows she’s here. No one can hear her scream.

Sofia Flores knows she shouldn’t have gotten involved. When she befriended Riley, Grace, and Alexis on her first day at school, she admired them, with their perfect hair and their good-girl ways. They said they wanted to save Brooklyn. They wanted to help her. Sofia didn’t realize they believed Brooklyn was possessed.

Now, Riley and the girls are performing an exorcism on Brooklyn—but their idea of an exorcism is closer to torture than salvation. All Sofia wants is to get out of this house. But there is no way out. Sofia can’t go against the other girls . . . unless she wants to be next. . . .

In this chilling debut, Danielle Vega delivers blood-curdling suspense and terror on every page. By the shockingly twisted end, readers will be faced with the most haunting question of all: Is there evil in all of us?
My Review:

To be honest, this bright pink cover with the upside down, golden pentagram is actually what caught my interest.

Now, I'm not a fan of exorcism books or movies, but this was calm enough that I really liked it. In fact, I liked it so much I couldn't put it down.

Sofia Flores has moved a lot due to her mother's military service. In this new town, she meets and befriends some girls...only....

None of them are what they seem to be.

*Shiver* if the description of this book doesn't clarify enaough, then I'll just tell you it gets scary. These girls are all messed up in the head. They all need help, even Sofia.

We learn dark secrets about everyone and learn how no one is truly good, but no one is truly bad either.

The only thing I didn't like about this book was Sofia's love just didn't seem to have a part in the story and was too much of an "insta-like" and then he just disappeared, so I don't even know why he's in the story except for his truck (which Sofia needs at one point).

I will say though, this book was definitely a thrill.

4.5 out of 5!
