Fairies do exist, but don’t let Mercy hear that! Now we have confirmed there are more creatures in the Dark Protector world and now they are calling the Seven on their bullshit mission. But one demon is going to try to stop her at all costs. Even if he loses his soul to her.
When Logan Kyllwood flirts with a woman he thinks is a key, he should make sure she is all he thinks she is before taking her on. Mercy O’Malley isn’t a violent woman, but she lures Logan to a bar to drug and kidnaps him for termination. Except she can’t kill Logan even if she has the power to do so. Sealed her fate before she even starts her long life. Ready to join the Seven, Mercy tries to prevent Logan from completing the ritual that could kill him before he even gets to the bad parts of what she knows his group will do to the different planes of existence.
This probably was one of my least favorite stories in the Dark Protectors series. A group of faires or Fey were brutally eliminated without the knowledge of the Seven when they performed rituals to impression Ulric. Now the few Fey left have a mission to stop the Seven from continuing their path, but also they aren’t really all that great as well. Mercy came across as single-focused on her mission, but wouldn’t consider the outside forces that also are causing the world to end. She also trusted her own people more than she ever should have. It didn’t lead me to find her mature enough to handle a relationship with a demon.
Logan believes in the cause of the Seven and plans to go through the ritual to become one of the Seven. Sam, his brother is important to the cause as well, but Logan doesn’t know exactly why. Throw in Garrett, his best friend, already having taken the ritual to become part of the Seven. When his hand starts to burn, Logan is determined not to mark Mercy, but he can’t turn away from her.
The story was interesting on how the Seven perverted the world, but the couple did nothing for me. They argued a lot. Went against each other. Did to stupid to live type actions and just plain annoyed me for most of the story. Maybe they needed to grow up a couple of 100 years are so. *shrugs*
Mercy is a prim and proper follow the rules, belief in the Kool-aid type of heroine and that just irritated me. Logan is focused on joining his friend, but not telling his family and that just irritated me. Overall, I love this series, but this is one story that just didn’t find a place in my heart.
