Things are heating up in the Big Easy. Weres have announced their existence to the world, and revived the bitter tensions that run between them and their old enemies: vampires. As a trusted employee of Leo Pellissier, Blood Master of the City, Jane finds herself caught in the cross fire. When Jane is attacked by a pack of marauding werewolves, she is thankful for the help of a mysterious stranger named Girrard. He explains that he used to be Leo's 'Mercy Blade,' a sacred position charged with killing vampires who have gone insane. What Jane doesn't know is why this powerful assassin left New Orleans--or, more troubling, why he's now returned. It's definitely not to make Jane's life easier..
Mercy Blade begins when Jane and her boyfriend Rick have to head back to New Orleans, Jane's current home for the next six months. The problem is when they get back she knows Rick has to work, but he puts distance between them, and then doesn't ever call her back. Now, she's unsure what is going on, and who exactly he's been with. Things get worse when her life and her friends life is on the line. She must deal with werewolves in the city, and a whole lot more.
This book was awesome! I loved getting to see Jane in action. And also getting to see a softer side to her as well, I felt so bad for when it came to Rick, and the other men in her life. She's got a crappy lot right now, but she will get out of it eventually!
The only bad thing about this book was the cliffhanger ending. So, I must start the next book asap before I lose my mind wondering what the heck is going to happen next.
