Without Mercy Blurb:

What would you do if a simple errand takes a deadly twist, turning you from cautious prey to dangerous predator?

When Darcy’s outing takes a turn for the worst and tests her to the point of breaking, she struggles to maintain her humanity. Where loyalty and pack mean everything, she surrenders to the inevitable and only an act of complete trust can touch her. When all is said and done, with memories flooding her mind, Darcy holds tightly to the only thing that makes sense – it was all a dream. Or was it?

Belinda Boring is such a tease, but of course in a good way, by introducing her novelette Without Mercy.  I was gripping my kindle; with every click of the page I never wanted the short story to end. Boring did a fantastic job captivating me with her protagonist Darcy, who is a smart female werewolf that is in a pretty sticky situation.

The readers are introduced to Darcy who has to prepare for possibly the worst, which I pretty much held my breath through the whole scene.  Also introduced is the Alpha of her pack, Mason, which the readers were only spoiled a little bit about him.  The whole story is an introduction to Darcy, her personality, love, and the dangers that her pack has to go through.

I can’t say much more without spoiling too much, but I loved how Boring pulled you right into the story without the long background of each character. I was easily drawn to the characters and the plot was intense. I can’t wait for the next tidbit and to know more about Darcy and Mason’s relationship. So now Ill just wave my hands wildly hoping Belinda Boring will let me read the next part early.
