"Have you ever gone to sleep one night and woken up and it's two months later? Okay, not literally, but I swear it felt like two months went by in the blink of an eye. Still no word from Adam, but each day got easier to accept his absence, and I started to believe he might never come home. I started to think... maybe I didn't want him to anymore."

Overview

"Have you ever gone to sleep one night and woken up and it's two months later? Okay, not literally, but I swear it felt like two months went by in the blink of an eye. Still no word from Adam, but each day got easier to accept his absence, and I started to believe he might never come home. I started to think... maybe I didn't want him to anymore."

Child of Mercy continues the saga of angels and demons in Book IV of The Fallen. Left to raise a child on her own, Mercy contends with normal pregnancy woes, and a slew of dangers as new enemies and old vie for a piece of the child. Her heavenly cousins don't seem all that pleased with her impending motherhood either, and Mercy needs all the help she can get to keep her baby safe. Luckily, she has friends and family around to help out (a little too much family if you ask Mercy), especially Parker who is more than happy to fill Adam's vacant shoes. The question remains - will Adam stay away? And more importantly, if he waits too long, will Mercy want him to?

Child of Mercy was a little bit of a disappointment. Character development throughout the series could have been better and because of this I wasn't all that invested in the outcome.

A fun, light read for paranormal romance aficionados. There were some one-liners in this story that left me in giggles (thank goodness for the ubiquitous Nook covers that my stuffy colleagues didn't know what I was -really- reading). There was some violence and a hint of sexual tension (this being a book about an unmarried pregnant woman and fallen angels) but nothing that would prevent this from also having a place in a parent's YA library for that YA/A crossover crowd.

The way this book moved through the storyline was dissapointing...the other two books are much better.

I wanted to love this book as much as I loved the first 3 and, for the most part, I did. I found myself rooting for Mercy throughout her journey; laughing and crying right along with her. But is this really the final book in the Fallen series? For such a strong, beautiful, and unique story I felt like the ending left way too many unresolved questions. The final chapter felt rushed, and after waiting so long for the end to Mercy's story, I was slightly disappointed. However, despite my feelings towards the open ending, I still think this is a 5 star novel; not every amazing book can have a picture perfect ending that pleases every single reader. Lisa Olsen is definitely an author that deserves more recognition. I will be on the lookout for more wonderful and unique stories from her.
