Mercy is the third book in the Forever series, and it IS a series so I would definitely recommend starting with Serenity. Trust me, so much goes on inside these pages, you would be lost otherwise.
Now then, where do I start? First of all, this is a long book. So whatever you do, make sure you have stocked up on supplies. That includes a box of kleenex, enough chocolate to last you a week, plenty of drinks, and let your family know you will be indisposed for the foreseeable future, until you've finished reading. Because once you start reading, you will be lost. I promise you that. The first chapter had me crying! That is how quickly I was sucked back into Serenity's world and the situations she was dealing with. Some pleasant, some not so pleasant, some downright horrible.
As this is a long book, you can be sure of plenty of things going on. There is never a dull moment, but whether it is happiness or sorrow you are feeling, your emotions will never be far away. There is danger and suspense, building up to an epic climax that will blow you away. There is a twist here that I never saw coming. I sort of hope this is the end to one part of it, but knowing how Ms. Adams' works takes me to places as yet undiscovered, I guess I will have to wait and see what comes next. Whatever it is I can imagine, will only be a whole load better!
With no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt my reading, I was completely engrossed with this story. This book defies genres and situations. It is hard to put into words, so you will just have to read it for yourself. One thing I can promise is that you won't regret it.
Such a good book, a fantastic series, and highly recommended by me.

India R Adams is an author/singer/songwriter who has written YA and NA novels such as Blue Waters (A Tainted Waters Novella), My Wolf and Me, Steal Me (A Haunted Roads Novel), Rain (A Stranger in the Woods Novel), Serenity (A Forever Series Novel) and also The Forever Series music.
India was born and raised in Florida but has also been so lucky as to live in Idaho (where she froze but fell in love with the small town life), Austin Texas (where she started her first book, Serenity, and met wonderful artist), and now Murphy, North Carolina (where the mountains have stolen a piece of her heart).
Being a survivor of abuse, has inspired India to let others know they have nothing to be ashamed of. She put her many years of professional theater background to the test and has written fictional stories with a shadow of her personal experiences. She says, “I’m simply finding ways to empower perfect imperfections.”
Another cause India feels needs change, is Sexual Slavery. She has joined forces with jewelers to design beautiful ways to raise money for non-profit organizations. Even though India writes about serious subjects such as domestic violence, sexual abuse, and Human Trafficking, she has a magnificent sense of humor, as do the characters she creates. Perfectly balanced between laughter and tears, her readers see how to empower their own perfect imperfections.
