My Selection for Waiting on Wednesday: MERCY by Rebecca Lim

It's that time again. Time to find out what is hotly anticipated by your fellow book blogger and literary lover. That's the concept behind this terrific meme started by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This week I'm going with a book that Harper Collins expects to be a major paranormal series: MERCY, book one of the Mercy series. Let's look at the description...

There's something very wrong with me. I can't remember who I am or how old I am, or even how I got here. All I know is that when I wake up, I could be any one. It is always this way. There's nothing I can keep with me that will stay. It's made me adaptable. I must always re-establish ties. I must tread carefully or give myself away. I must survive. 

Mercy doesn't realize it yet, but as she journeys into the darkest places of the human soul, she discovers that she is one of the celestial host exiled with fallen angel, Lucifer. Now she must atone for taking his side. To find her own way back to heaven, Mercy must help a series of humans in crisis and keep the unwary from getting caught up in the games that angels play. Ultimately she must choose between her immortal companion, Lucifer, and a human boy who risks everything for her love.

Harper Collins is apparently positioning this book and series as a major force in the YA world, but I've heard surprisingly little about it. The author is from Australia and perhaps she'll get a US tour a la Alexandra Adornetto style, author of HALO,  when MERCY heads to the US in the spring.

I certainly can't wait to check it out to see if it lives up to the hype. What about you?

  3. I can only say that this trend is the next big obssession with readers look like! The book sounds interesting but will reserve judgement on that until some reviews come in... Cool though another Australian author, they seem to be really catching on with American readers this year!
