Review: Without Mercy by Belinda Boring

Title: Without Mercy
Author: Belinda Boring
Source: Received from author in exchange for honest review


What would you do if a simple errand takes a deadly twist, turning you from cautious prey to dangerous predator?

When Darcy’s outing takes a turn for the worst and tests her to the point of breaking, she struggles to maintain her humanity. Where loyalty and pack mean everything, she surrenders to the inevitable and only an act of complete trust can touch her. When all is said and done, with memories flooding her mind, Darcy holds tightly to the only thing that makes sense – it was all a dream. Or was it?


Without Mercy is a very short novella-length book. It goes by very quickly without a dull moment. The story centers around a werewolf named Darcy and the awful predicament she is in. All it takes is a trip to the store, and her life is in danger. It reminds you that things can happen to anyone at any time. Darcy is a wonderful person, and wants to settle things in the least violent way possible. This decision, however, turns tragic.

Darcy is a strong female lead character. She is very brave and un-selfish. We are introduced to Mason in this story – the pack leader, and Darcy's future mate. Even with what little we see of him, it is obvious that this guy is amazing. He is a very swoonworthy character, and a perfect pack leader. I can't wait to read more about him in future books.

One word that describes this story is “smooth”. It flows wonderfully and has great pacing. I love how novellas are quicker paced, so you don't have all the boring descriptions to wade through. This novella is Belinda Boring's debut, and I was quite impressed. She is a wonderful writer and I'm looking forward to reading much more from her.

You can purchase this book at the following places:
Amazon (Kindle)
Barnes & Noble (Nook)
Smashwords (all formats)

  1. I agree. Novellas tend to omit the extra details. Lovely review.
