Misericordia is original, intriguing, and impeccably written. While the ending proves to be somewhat mysterious, it felt fitting for the tone of the story, allowing the reader to form their own conclusions as to what exactly has occurred.

This is the second piece I've read by Ms. Sears, and I continue to be impressed with her talent and imagination both.
