However, I enjoyed it and will definitely recommend it to others.

The Price of Mercy was an easy read and really enjoyable.

This book could be for more than one type of reader and I would say it was definitely worth reading.

The story was sweet. I liked how Jarrin realized his fate and knew there was nothing to do but accept and embrace it. Sometimes I wish I could time-travel to the Renaissance era just to experience life the way they did!
