When Mercy finds out some secrets about her family, her life changes forever. Months earlier, Mercy almost died at her mother's hands, and since then, Mercy has been scared. She is always looking over her shoulder and is certain that someone has been watching her. When Mercy gets into a car accident, certain things start falling into place, and she learns several secrets that have kept her in the dark for almost eighteen years of her life. As she accepts her new reality, she is determined to find out the truth about who she really is. Mercy turns into a fighter, and nobody is going to get in her way. The Dark Awakening by D.L. Blade is a fast-paced paranormal story that was such an interesting read.
I personally really enjoyed The Dark Awakening! The story was very plot-driven and full of action, keeping me in suspense during every chapter. Mercy was a very intense protagonist, and I loved watching her personality change from shy and scared to determined and persevering. She turned into such a strong fighter, and her character development was awesome overall. I am definitely interested in reading the second and third books in this trilogy and hope to pick them up soon. D.L. Blade did a lovely job crafting this paranormal world full of witches, vampires, and werewolves. I would definitely recommend this book to people who love fantasy or paranormal books and want to get their hands on a book that is a bit different.
