Mercy, being a third book in Forever series, means that no matter what I write about the story per se, would sound utterly incoherent to any of you who haven't read this series.

I, however, highly recommend it. Not only Forever series but any of India R Adams' books...

Seriously, this author brings another meaning to everything meaningful...

Insightfulness and fulfillment are just little glowly particles in her magic that bring you to a brink of your own self -awareness...meaning of love, life, bei

There are books that make me think. Hard. And Mercy is one of them.
As the story begins with a reminder of the previous events that took place in Destiny, guilt and sorrow slowly but surely envelop us when we are plunged into Serenity's sorrow. It didn't take long for my heart to break, but here lies that incredible magic with India's books: you know that you'll always find the light in the dark. She once more made wonders, managing to make me smile in spite of the painful situations. And that is

I said it before and I’ll say it again this author knows much more than she is letting on. There is something very special about this book. It has an energy of it’s own when you start reading it. If I’ve learned anything it’s that energy attracts energy and can take on a mind of it’s own. Everything is connected and the circle never seems to end. Seriously, as I was reading the book there is a scene about letting go of negativity and stress and at the exact moment I was reading it there was some ...more
What a journey Mercy was! This is a winding tale of love and sacrifice with a splash of paranormal and I loved every single minute I spent between these covers. Mercy is the third book in the Forever series and it is a series that should be read in series order. Ms. Adams does a fabulous job giving background history on the characters and situations but to truly appreciate this journey it would be best to read the serials in order. Trust me, you will fall in love with this series and its charact ...more

This the third novel in the forever series, and I just adored it. The characters and the feelings in this book really touch me. Every Book in this series has me crying, bot tears of joy and sadness. I love Serenity’s crew, watching them grow and become even more understanding with their increased knowledge of the world even as it changes from what they thought they knew. Destiny’s boys are no different and just as wonderful as their counterparts from the crew. I love the additions they have gott ...more

With tears in my eyes... I have finished the next chapter of this epic series... And holy CRAP was it amazing...

I am honestly speechless, but I'm going to try to put together the words to describe how much I adore this story...

The author has this way of capturing you from the first page and keeping you intrigued to the last sentence. There were some hard subjects that the characters went through, but she absolutely handled them BEAUTIFULLY and RESPECTFULLY. I hated putting my Kindle down when ad

The third book in the Forever series was everything I hoped it would be,the feelings that India can evoke in a reader are a mish mash of highs,lows and utter wonder that will have you reaching for the tissues and splashing tears all over your kindle.

Deep breath.. Sigh... Putting Mercy into words for a review is difficult without giving away to much and spoiling the emotional experience for others.
India has such an amazing writing style. Once you get on this emotional soul train there just aint no getting off.
The depth of emotion felt whilst India pulls you into Mercy is just magical. You feel every word, Every emotion like you're there, living in India's light of perfect imperfections.

Mercy is the third book in the Forever series, and it IS a series so I would definitely recommend starting with Serenity. Trust me, so much goes on inside these pages, you would be lost otherwise.

Now then, where do I start? First of all, this is a long book. So whatever you do, make sure you have stocked up on supplies. That includes a box of kleenex, enough chocolate to last you a week, plenty of drinks, and let your family know you will be indisposed for the foreseeable future, until you've fi

An Amazingly Spiritual LOVE STORY
With an intricate detail that pulls a reader into the experience and tension of “MERCY,” India Adams’s third book in the FOREVER SERIES is an amazingly complex yet relentlessly compelling story of love. While this may be billed as a romance, it is so much more. Author India Adams has an incredibly descriptive prose that allowed this reader to see all that the various characters saw, often experiencing the same event through multiple points of view so that I could

Ok, so I have to start by saying that when you pick up this book that firstly it is part of a series and that you will need to have an open mind and an open heart to truly appreciate how beautiful this book is.
Reading a book by India is on a whole nother level for me, I feel all the emotions and the writing is just so sincere that you can't help but be sucked into not only the story but the feelings. Gosh, I just don't feel like I have adequite enough words for how wonderful an experince this bo

Wow! Just wow! Incredible story. This is definitely a series you need to read. Found myself crying, laughing, yelling at my Kindle. Such amazing characters, amazing story telling. I have not been this invested in characters like this in a long time. You feel like you are a part of the story, like you are a part of this group of amazing people.

This picks up where Destiny leaves off. Dereck on tour with Destiny, him and Serenity still going strong. Everyone in their circle has 'pledged' themselve

I received an ARC copy of this book from the author and I voluntarily reviewed it. Thank you India R Adams!

Deep sigh... This book... There are no words. I will never get over how Adams’ writing has a sense of being; how it’s infinitely profound. Adams has a clear and unique voice that comes through in her writing. Reading one of her books is so unlike anything you’ve ever read before in the most beautiful way possible.

This book closes a chapter in Serenity’s life and opens another for the next b

Mercy by India R. Adams is the third book in her Forever series and my favorite read. Mercy is not a standalone. You must read the previous books, Serenity and Destiny, first.

Mercy picks up where Destiny was left off.
Serenity is married to Dereck and everything could be great. But her vicious father is about to released from jail and he's determined to make her life a living hell again.
Mercy contains just the right amount of drama and danger to keep you at the edge of your seat. I read the book

Independent reviewer for Archaeolibraian – I Dig Good Books

Surprise, surprise, this book was brutal. It was deep, emotional, heavy, and raw. It was really just perfect.
If you’ve ever read a book by India before, you know she isn’t known for holding back the emotions. She throws them out there and secretly feeds off of the tears of her readers (hehe). On a serious note, she brings out the real emotions, the ones that you can’t deny, The ones that sit heavy on your chest, and burn at your throat

To say that Mercy was perfection would be a understatement and wouldn’t be enough for the talent that is India Adams. With every word she writes I fall deeper and deeper for her stories!! Unfortunately nothing I could write in my review would do her books or her any justice so I won’t even try lol. I will however say if you are looking for a beautifully written book with a plethora of depth on so many levels she is the author for you.

Wow! I loved this book.
Mercy is #3 in the Forever series, so if you haven't read the first two - Serenity and Destiny - I suggest you read them first then read Mercy.
Have your tissues at the ready,but also be prepared to laugh. A lot. India makes you very invested in her characters.
Five stars from me.

Deep breath...heart ache...angels with us in the light.

India R. Adams has presented the third book in her Forever series, Mercy.

I believe our souls cry out for the emotional connections we need at certain points in our life. These connections take place between lovers, family, friends, and strangers. They grow from words and thoughts and feelings.

The connection that India has with her readers is blessed by her light, as she grows through her life experiences and finds the presence of mind to

Mercy is the third book in the Forever series. It crosses several genres including, romantic suspense and magical fantasy. I would recommend reading the books in order to get the best from the series.

The connections between country singer Destiny and Serenity, a young woman, continue. As does the support system around them from husbands, band members, friends and employees. Everyone is aware of threats to the lives of both Destiny and Senenity. They pledge to do all they can to protect the pair,

Where do I even begin about this book?

Wow! Mercy was my first read by India R. Adams and to say I am blown away by her powerful writing would be a complete understatement. I know, I know I should've started with the first book in the series, but never fear, Serenity is next up on my list to read.

Right off, I was drawn to the story by the cover and the blurb. Little did I know though, just how good this story was going to be. Adams has been hiding out somewhere because she is an author that ever

I have to say it, I'm now totally hooked on Ms Adams books!
Absolutely brilliant! I couldn't put the book down and was totally exhausted when I finished it!
So many questions are answered. But so many more have arisen.
New characters have joined and all are meshing beautifully. The protectors are so much more than protectors. How have all their lives come together again?
This book gave me goose bumps. Many times.
I really need more. Now!

This is the third book in the series and they need to be read in order.
Serenity Hamilton is well aware that the danger that surrounds her is not over yet.
Will Serenity have the chance to deal with her nightmares head on and finally have them leave her or will they only get worse not knowing when evil will be at her door?
I think this is the final book in the series and I enjoyed it although all the books were relatively long.

Mercy is the third book in the Forever series and must be read in order. I know that some may say that since there are "recaps" within this book that it isn't necessary to read them all but I assure you that it is necessary to understand the gravity of the Pledge to one another and the Mercy they need.

Mercy by India R Adams is a gutwrenching, intense read that will definitely touch the heart. It is incredibly written, and I felt that the writing was raw, completely emotional - and it felt true, it felt real, more intense. I couldn't help but be swallowed up but the story.

Yet again, the supernatural aspect of the story just added to the intensity of it all. It would have been intense enough without it, but with it - it just gave it an edge that made it all the more fierce.

Mercy is book three in the Forever series and it's just as emotionally intense as the first two books.
