The Boneless Mercies

About the Book

The Boneless Mercies

Frey, Ovie, Juniper and Runa are the Boneless Mercies --- girls hired to kill quickly, quietly and mercifully. But Frey is weary of the death trade and, having been raised on the heroic sagas of her people, dreams of a bigger life.

When she hears of an unstoppable monster ravaging a nearby town, Frey decides this is the Mercies' one chance out. The fame and fortune of bringing down such a beast would ensure a new future for all the Mercies. In fact, her actions may change the story arc of women everywhere.

Full of fierce girls, bloodlust, tenuous alliances and unapologetic quests for glory, this elegantly spun tale challenges the power of storytelling --- and who gets to be the storyteller. Perfect for fans of Maggie Stiefvater, V.E. Schwab and Heidi Heilig.
