"I have yet to come across a Mercy book I haven't loved! Each seem so different that it is like starting a new story all over again. Each theme different. I loved that in this book we get to see more insight into Mercy's heritage and what that means exactly. <br/><br/>I would have loved to see Bran a bit more in this, but you know, it isn't his book. But I'd just like to reiterate just how much I love Bran. But, I love Mercy and Adam too, so I was very happy to read about the both of them and their shenanigans. <br/><br/>The story was great. We've dealt previously with a lot of bad guys, but none quite like this. And the help along the way was unexpected, but I loved it. I loved the idea behind it and the symbolism. This book is definitely another keeper. I can't wait for another, the ending left some promising openings for another great book!"
"Probably the hardest to get through of all the books in the series that I've read so far. Where the other ones had fantastic pacing, this one seemed to drag a bit. Unsure exactly what it was. Still a good book but not my favorite in the series overall. Do get a lot of lore development for the walkers, though which is essential moving forward."
