Book Review: Grave Mercy

November 28, 2014 book review, Lyn 3 ★★★★

Grave Mercy has gained a reputation as owning their own cult following.  Mention the book, and watch the rabid fans come arunnin’. Fan-cultivated world-of-mouth advertising has bitten me before, such as The Fifth Wave, and I find it too uncomfortable to speak out about books that everyone loved, except for me. Grave Mercy was placed on the back burner for a very long time due to this issue. After finding myself not falling in love with the Throne of Glass series, I was way too paranoid to start this one.

Seriously, Winter 2015 is shaping up to be awesome. Here are the books Lyn and I are looking to get to in the coming months. more »
