Review "A beautifully told tale of supernatural folklore and ancestry that ends in a terrifying thrill ride readers can sink their teeth into." --Amanda Marrone, bestselling author of Devoured

In her novel, "Mercy: The Last New England Vampire," Sarah Thomson got it right. Unlike so many other young adult vampire novels that cannot escape the fanged shadow of the fictional Dracula, "Mercy" is firmly grounded in the historical reality of vampires. It is clear that the novel s main character, Haley, understands that Mercy was a scapegoat and that it was fear of a mystifying illness that drove Mercy s family to perform a horrific ritual. As Haley so poignantly says of Mercy, this wasn t a horror movie ... It was her life. --Michael Bell, author of "Food for the Dead"

Sarah Thomson's "Mercy" weaves the dark threads of an old New England legend into a contemporary tale of ghostly mystery that is both compelling and genuinely chilling. In a literary genre overrun with sparkling vampires and romance-novel angst, Thomson has crafted a welcome return to the shadowy terrors of graves and ghouls. I found myself unable to put the book down. A deliciously eerie way to pass a stormy night! --Christopher Rondina, author of "Vampires of New England"
