This is going to be a quickie review to fit a quickie story. Without Mercy is a very short novella, a quick story, but an excellent one. So many times in novellas, the stories can be complex, which is very difficult to pull off in a short story. In Without Mercy, Belinda Boring does an excellent job of keeping the story on-track, and not making the plot overly complicated. This story is a teaser, and a wonderful introduction to a new series and new characters.
In this novella, emotions run high as two female werewolves are cornered and betrayed by a man they thought was a friend. As the danger escalates, Darcy and her future sister-in-law struggle to keep their inner-wolves at bay. I felt for Darcy and her struggle to try to maintain the balance between her humanity and her inner wolf. I also liked Marcus, the alpha wolf, and how he handled the aftermath of the dangerous encounter the girls faced. I loved the characters, I loved the plot, I loved this novella. I am now very much looking forward to reading more about these characters.
Without Mercy is the perfect prelude to a promising new series. Kudos to Ms. Boring for such an excellent debut!
