This book had me hooked from chapter one. I spent almost an entire day reading the whole thing! I couldn't put it down - I had to know what Mercy was going to do next. The main character was incredibly likeable and relatable, and the golden bad boy always leaves you begging for more. The two light up the pages together with their undeniable chemistry. The supernatural element of angels in this book was wonderfully refreshing and most definitely a cut above the rest when it comes to the constant outpour of paranormal romance these days. The fact that the protagonists were fallen angels made it even better, adding an air of mystery and tragedy to their characters. The cliffhanger at the end is absolutely merciless (no pun intended), and I'm dying to read the next installment! I encourage you to add this to your library immediately - you won't regret it.

Loved this author's writing style. Her characterization is so vivid, you're likely to see the character appear in your room before your eyes. Are you curious about the balance between good and evil? I enjoyed reading about the surface plot and the not-so-obvious sub-plots as they enfolded. I really couldn't put this book down it moved so quickly. I sometimes found myself having to reread a section to see if that is what she REALLY said. Wow! It expanded my mind a bit, and made me look around at some of the people I know to wonder, 'what if' they might be from another world? another existence? a life beyond what we seem to see? Definitely worth the read. If you want to set your imagination afire, download this book.

When I read a book, I usually have one of three reactions. I may hate it and can't even finish reading it. I may like it but find myself distracted easily and thinking of how I would write the story differently. (Those books are part of the reason I became a writer). And the third reaction: I may love it and find myself unable to put it down. For those books, I find myself thinking of the story long after I've finished reading the book. Every page is a joy and I can't wait to read more. That category is usually reserved for a few of my favorite authors, such as Sherrilyn Kenyon, Maggie Shayne and Jayne Castle. I now have a new author to add to that list. Her name is Lisa Olsen and the book is "Angel of Mercy." "Angel of Mercy" is the story of Merceline, a woman who unexpectedly finds herself thrust in the world of angels and demons after a near death experience leaves her healed by a fallen angel and imbued with some of his powers. Mercy is a strong, funny and very likeable main character. Her interactions with her friends and family are believable and entertaining. When she complains of her family drama, I feel I am listening to an old friend. All of Olsen's characters have depth and personality. In otherwords, they feel like real people. The action of the story flowed well. From page one, there was never a moment when I got bored and wanted to put the book down. But even so, each chapter wrapped up well enough that I could stop when I needed to go back to work or care for my children. It struck a nice balance that made it a very enjoyable read. I will gladly purchase this author's other books and cannot wait to read the continuation of this story in "Mercy for the Wicked " -A.D. McLain

I really liked Angel of Mercy. The characters were all hilarious- From Sam, who is very childlike, to Mattie, the slacker brother. Mercy was highly sarcastic and made the book entertaining throughout the story. It was a little suspenseful, trying to find out what is going on with Mercy and why; there was always something unanswered that kept you reading for more. Great cliffhanger at the end, can't wait for the sequel!

This is a great read, I couldn't put it down. It fits well with what's hot today, but can really stand on it's own. The writers style is so good you feel like you know these people when it's all over. I can't wait until the next book comes out. Watch out Stephine Meyer, there's a new writer in town.

I'm not usually a fan of first person POV books, but this one drew me right in from the start. The author set up an interesting world of fallen angels and demons mixed in with urban city living in Seattle. I liked the nifty set of powers that Mercy got from being touched by an angel. I just hope the next one comes out soon!

I read Ms. Olsen's book in two days, I loved it. The charactrs were fresh and witty, and the narrative was well written flowed easily. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series. I really care about the characters and want to find out what happens next.
