Title and Author:
Mercy's Prince (He Who Finds Mercy #1) by Katy Huth Jones
Name of Reviewer:
My only complaint was that the book was too long. (I know, lame complaint) I kept reading and reading, pressing on to the end, because I was dying to finish it, but it took me forever.
I was completely caught up in the characters' lives. Even in the beginning, when the novel took a while to take off, I found every detail interesting. This is a new world with things like burrowing dragons and lizard men. The novel follows three characters, two of which I knew would converge at some point, and I loved the dynamics once they did.
I'd call this a cozy swords and sorcery book with a lot of adorable romance. It's just a feel good book, one to curl up with before a fire and read for nine hours straight.
My favorite thing was the accents. Some brogue in there. Aye, it was entertain' and cute.
We start out with a prince who was pretty much unimpressive. I actually worried for him. Eep. Where was he going in life? But he was endearing. All the characters were. Even the villain. The villain had a conscious. And a mean violent streak. Liked.
And I loved Mercy. She could do amazing things. She was selfless. It was fun to watch her grow, along with the prince.
There's a super fab magical element in play. The characters can See things. As in, like a seer/mind reader. Great angle.
All around awesome read. Will give sequels and other books by the author a read.
