This is my first Willow Winters book and it is a lot darker than what I normally read, Merciless was well written and I enjoyed her style. Personally, I felt awkward at times as I not generally keen on the plot of this book and found it hard to connect to the characters. Awaiting the release of book 2, Heartless I hope that I am able to connect more with the story and have a better understanding of the characters.
