Carol's Reviews > The Merciless
OK OK....I love a good horror story, but this tale of evil- doing was clearly just too young-adult (for me) for the most part.
It all begins when a restricted group of young teen girls get together for a little fun in a secluded, unoccupied house for drinking & gossiping about boys and confessing their deepest darkest secrets that ultimately end with revengeful acts of mutilation and torture, (no spoiler here) all in the name of forgiveness and absolution from above. (be prepared for some ewwwwww moments)
And...... although I found the rituals and cat fights a bit silly and unconvincing, I kept reading and discovered a surprisingly good, but short side story with a (somewhat predictable) dark twisty reveal at the end that the horror reader in me enjoyed.
2.5 Stars with a round up to 3 as I don't believe I was the intended targeted audience for this one.
