Mercy by Rebecca Lim Review

Mercy ′wakes′ on a school bus bound for Paradise, a small town where everyone knows everyone else′s business -- or thinks they do. But they will never guess the secret Mercy is hiding ....
As an angel exiled from heaven and doomed to return repeatedly to Earth, Mercy is never sure whose life and body she will share each time. And her mind is filled with the desperate pleas of her beloved, Luc, who can only approach her in her dreams.
In Paradise, Mercy meets Ryan, whose sister was kidnapped two years ago and is now presumed dead. When another girl disappears, Mercy and Ryan know they must act before time runs out. But a host of angels are out for Mercy′s blood and they won′t rest until they find her and punish her -- for a crime she doesn′t remember committing ...
An electric combination of angels, mystery and romance, Mercy is the first book in a major new series. 

I loved how this book was written and I think that Rebecca Lim has a way of weaving words beautifully. However I do think that this was a bit of a pointless book seeing as there was no major event that took place. This could either make or break the book and its sequels, if people want to see what happens next then they would obviously buy the next book but if they think that the second book will be just like the first book then of course they will not buy it because they think that there will be no major events or climaxes so they will find that it is a pointless series of books and will not waste their time reading the books. I still think that the book has an interesting plot and concept, once again she writes wonderfully and that adds nicely to the book. I liked how a lot of the book revolves around singing and the school, it is very interesting. It is a new book and a new way of seeing an angel. Mercy is a wonderfully strange angel and Lim wrote these kinds of angels as something entirely different. These kinds of angels sort of reminded me of souls from Stephenie Meyer’s wonderfully written ‘the host’ Overall Mercy was an interesting read.

Here are the covers for the upcoming books in the series:
Personally I like Muse's cover the best! I just love how all of the titles have the vine-ish type things it makes them all the more beautiful.
