The Boneless Mercies
Boneless Mercies: Book #1
Narrated by Saskia Maarleveld / 8 hours 10 minutes
“Wow. Gripping is an understatement. The book series HIS FAIR ASSASSINS by RL LaFevers meets movie 13th WARRIOR starting Antonio Banderas in this gender-swapped Beowulf retelling. So richly imagined and full of mythology, traditions, and glimpses of a world inspired by our own with a heavily fantasized twist. Glory, honor, and loyalty above all drive Frey, her Mercies, and their healer friend, Trygve, as they journey in search of the monster terrorizing towns. Many have tried to kill it. No one has succeeded. But the Mercies are no strangers to killing, do not fear death, and have prophecy on their side. Heartfelt, nuanced, feminist, and kick-ass.”BrocheAroe, River Dog Book Co.
A dark and gorgeously drawn standalone YA fantasy about a band of mercenary girls in search of female glory. Won in a major six-house auction! 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.
