Mercenary is a non-stop action fantasy. There are laugh out loud moments, and a tiny bit of romance. I really loved this new elves series. This book kept me up late reading into the night, I just didn't want to put it down.

Marin is a human who has been living with the elves in the royal castle since she was four years old when the king found her by the side of the road. Her "mother" the queen has been trying to teach her to be a proper lady, while her "father" the king just wants her to be happ

Liked it well enough, like fantasy in general, and this wasn't the usual but at the same time some of it seemed 'cutesy' and that is not a compliment when it comes from me.Basically liked it okay but not luved it. Since couldn't quite pinpoint reasons why even in general hesitated to give it a lower rating since didn't couldn't state out just why. Got it as a freebie book I guess, just thought it being pdf it was something had asked to review.

I have to say that I can make it official that I'm a fan of Banks' writing. It turns out it wasn't just her Artemis Lupine series that captivated me, but this one as well. Banks puts a ton of action and suspense into her story lines, while also making room for just the right amount of character development and squeezing in the perfect details exactly where you'd want them.

She brings fun friendships to the table with her characters and sweet amounts of romance or at least the hints or beginnings
