Havemercy - Danielle Bennett, Jaida Jones It's clear this book was written by two people because the quality of the writing and planning was inconsistent. One moment the writing is lyrical and clever and the next it's a mess of stereotypes and cliches complete with an abundant abuse of the word 'rather'. The characters were colorful but unexpectedly one-dimensional. Still, the world was imaginative and intriguing and I particularly enjoyed the creation of the mechanical dragons. I wanted to like it more than I did and it's unfortunate that the relationships in this book could be likened to the whimpering, sappy teen melodrama of the CW, and that the ending was incredibly rushed, and the mechanical dragons factored into the story far less than the title suggested, seeing as the book was named after one.
