The “Office of Mercy” was ok. And if you are into dystopian fiction this may be right up your alley, I’m not as familiar with dystopian fiction as with other Science Fiction and fantasy. With that being said…..
It did leave a few things unexplained such as the references to other America settlements that America – Five seemed to have information about, but it was never revealed on how this knowledge was accumulated, or if there was any contact between the other settlements with America –Five.
The ending was ironic in how the views of the two main characters were reversed.
All in all it was a good debut novel, but the story was slow in developing, and it was just the promise of more being revealed that kept me reading.
