Waiting on Wednesday: The Boneless Mercies

The Boneless Mercies Featured Image

The Boneless Mercies CoverFrey, Ovie, Juniper, and Runa are the Boneless Mercies—girls hired to kill quickly, quietly, and mercifully. But Frey is weary of the death trade and, having been raised on the heroic sagas of her people, dreams of a bigger life. 

When she hears of an unstoppable monster ravaging a nearby town, Frey decides this is the Mercies’ one chance out. The fame and fortune of bringing down such a beast would ensure a new future for all the Mercies. In fact, her actions may change the story arc of women everywhere.

Full of fierce girls, bloodlust, tenuous alliances, and unapologetic quests for glory, this elegantly spun tale challenges the power of storytelling—and who gets to be the storyteller.

Why I’m excited for this book:

This book sounds like everything I want right now: a cabal of badass female warriors, a redemption story, quests, and great storytelling. One of my favourite things about the Truthwitch series is the sisterly affection between Iseult and Safi. I hope in this book I am getting something along the same lines. I mean come on, those who kill together have to be friendly right? Although I am getting some Game of Thrones vibes where loyalties shift I really just want a book about a badass bunch of girls who go on quests, slay monsters and don’t apologize for their fierceness. Fingers crossed that this book ticks all of those boxes! The outcome looks pretty good I would say!
