Can you say Mean Girls? The Merciless is Mean Girls to the nth degree! Think Regina George and add a little Annie Wilkes crazy (a la Stephen King’s Misery), the blind devotion of Gretchen Wieners, a pinch of the darkness and spellbinding appeal of Fairuza Balk and the factitious innocence of Robin Tunney (The Craft) and you have the cast of Danielle Vega’s The Merciless.
This YA read is an absolute page-turner that gave me the heebee geebees, had me cringing, and just utterly grossed me out. What a great read! Danielle Vega leaves nothing to the imagination in this tale of girls possessed. Without giving anything away I have to say that Vega has one twisted and creeptastic mind!
Highly recommended if you have the stomach for good, classic, creepy horror in the vein of classic Stephen King. Thank you Danielle! You kept me awake last night. I couldn’t sleep until I finished The Merciless!
4.5 Horrific Stars!
