After I finished reading a funny light hearted book I felt like starting a book a little different with a mystery involved. As this book is described inside as 'an electric combination of angels, mystery and romance' it sounded a perfect read. Unfortunately I have never wanted a book to end so much, I wasn't going to stop persevering through the book but due to the fact I was totally confused through the whole book and barely understood anything that was happening, I thought the book was never going to end. Last night, to my relief, I finally finished the long 280 pages but am still not entirely sure what I read.
The book is about an angel who is named Mercy, although that is not her real name, as she doesn't know who she is or where she comes from, or anything else about herself. Mercy is inhabited in another humans body to try and help them out. In this book she inhabits Carmen, who goes away for a music thing with her choir. Carmen lives with a family whilst away in the room of Lauren's who disappeared a while ago. Lauren's parents don't believe she is coming back but her brother Ryan still believes she is out there somewhere. Carmen helps Ryan try to find out the mystery behind the disappearance and return Lauren home but its not as easy as they think.
From this point on to about twenty pages before the end of the book is the part that confused me most. The ending of the book was good but not as good as i'd have hoped for the length of time I spent reading this book.
My favourite part of the book (which was the only bits I vaguely understood), were the chapters with Mercy and Ryan as I found they had a good relationship and had good descriptions. I really liked when Ryan saw Mercy glowing as it was interesting to see how she would respond.
I think the concept of book is a great idea but the writing could have been better. I feel I know no more about the book now than when I started! The likelihood of me picking up the next book to read is very slim.
Summary: i wouldnt recommend it
