KIM BRIGGS HAUNTING READS BOOK REVIEW: The Merciless by Danielle Vega




Image result for danielle vega the merciless















The Merciless author, Danielle Vega looks innocent enough. Don't be deceived. This Young Adult Author knows how to scare with a capital S! Don't let the pretty in pink book cover fool you either.







GENRE: Young Adult horror

When there’s a warning on the first page of a book for Mature Audiences only—you know, NO, you expect to be scared out of your mind. The Merciless does not disappoint.

The pitch: Mean Girls meets Carrie... I know, right?!?! Why even bother with back copy, just tear the book open.

Danielle Vega brings the horrifying aspects of human nature to The Merciless

The Merciless begins like many young adults novels. New student in new town hoping to fit it. New student meets new group of Barbie/Martha girls who decide the social ranking of every student in the school, and new student becomes the 'it' accessory of the month, and of course, there's a cute boy who has potential.

Within the first couple pages new student, Sofia meets Brooklyn, a bad girl who seems a bit satanic but maybe she’s just misunderstood. We, as readers, really don’t know what to make of Brooklyn, but we develop strong expectations about the Barbie/Martha girls, led by sweet as molasses, Riley.

Early on, Sofia stumbles upon a skinned cat set up in a pentagram with candles lit. Riley accuses Brooklyn of the sacrifice, but we’re kinda wondering if Riley and her friends did it--you know, as an experiment or something.

Questionable event after questionable event leads up to the night of the Exorcism. Yes, Exorcism. I refuse to discuss anything that happens during the Exorcism, and whatever you think is going to happen is WRONG, so, so WRONG.

Danielle uses an easy story-telling style that sucks you in slowly and orbits you in a vortex of terror until she’s ready to spit you out. Enjoy the ride.

Write on,

Kim
