Claire - The Coffeeholic Bookworm
The story starts with Nightshade receiving instructions from his father about her mission to rescue her twin sister Caroline Cotter. Nightshade was a highly trained soldier and she was supposed to pretend that she was her twin and would be saved by the enemy, Task Force Scorpion or TF-S. She was to do this so she could save her own troop, the Mayhem.

Merc hated Jack Mankel a lot. The man had done monstrous things to him and his men, and he vowed to extract revenge against him. And then he saw how

With each book I read in this series I am drawn in further and further. With the twins’ stories to be sussed out and determining who is and is not “good” and “bad” this series keeps me on tenterhooks waiting to find out what will happen next. I loved Merc and want to know more of his backstory. Nighshade is the perfect mate for him and I hope more of their relationship will be told in the future. There are still secrets and mysteries unexplained, teams that were captured to be found, a twin stil ...more

The story Revenge River: Men of Mercy, Book 9 by Lindsay Cross is a military/action/adventure book. Merc is a man with no past and no future. He only has a need for revenge on the traitor who betrayed his team and his country. Nightshade is like a shadow.

**I received a copy of Revenge River from the author in exchange for a honest and voluntary review**

Revenge River by Lindsay Cross is the ninth book in the Men of Mercy series. I have read each one and highly recommend that you read them in order because each one picks up where the least one ended. This book is Merc and Nightshade/Caroline/Marissa's story and its a solid 5 star book.

Nightshade was taken from her mother who passed away at the birth of her twin girls. Her father is a very powerful

Revenge River: Men of Mercy by Lindsay Cross is a four star book. This is the ninth and final book in the series. I have not yet read the other books in the series as I did not realize it was a series until after I started this book. Because of this, it was somewhat hard to follow at the beginning but I was still able to get into the book and enjoy it. I would definitely recommend starting with book one before reading the rest of the series. Merc is a man with many talents and skills. The one th ...more
