The best books you never read

I am both a reader and a writer. I find that the best writers are in fact avid readers. I love books of all kinds but I really adore reading new authors who are just getting their feet wet. Some of the very best writers are now found in the indie set. These reviews will be of books I have devoured in my never ending quest for good fiction. Some will be up and comers who have hit the top of the chart, but most will be struggling new writers who deserve a second look.

Angel of Mercy by Toni Andrews

Angel Of Mercy - Toni Andrews

Angel of Mercy is the second in a series. Mercy, a young woman who doesn't know just exactly what she is has the ability to press...or make people do things. She tries to live by a code of self imposed ethics and most of the time she does fine. She helps people.


In this book Mercy starts helping at a battered womens shelter. While the story deals with this topic gently and quite well, giving the facts, it is the secondary story of child pornography and what some men will do in their quest for power that takes us to the dark places of mankind.


Ms Andrews handles both the topic of abusive husbands and child pornography delicately and with understanding. The story pulls you from start to finish in a fast ride that is highly emotional.


Woven into the darker subjects is Mercy's own quest to find out who and what she is. With the help of the ever bubbly Sukey she manages to find some clues that lead to more questions. All in all a great read and I can't wait to read the next in the series.
