This is an amazing story. Jami Alden creates characters with incredible dimensions. Each character is layered and conflicted. The fight between good and evil, right and wrong is strong and consistent. I could hardly put this book down, once it drew me in there was no turning back! Beg for Mercy is book #1 in the trilogy, book #2 Hide from Evil is scheduled for release in November 2011.
