Merc is a determined twenty-one-year-old, with an admittedly odd name, who is not going to let her true nature dictate how she should live her life. Being the daughter of Death – and the first human/reaper hybrid - is not an easy existence. It is a legacy she didn’t ask for.
Paul Ward is her next-door neighbor. His very presence in her life starts to complicate things. Merc wants to keep her distance, but somehow fate seems to want to bring these two closer together. A disaster occurs, and this man learns the terrifying secret that the Pritchetts keep. There is no turning back and Merc is forced to let him in.
She doesn’t even want to contemplate who is the threat behind the scenes that is threatening the balance she is working so hard to keep.
