Review: Saving Mercy (Fatal Truth #1) by Abbie Roads

*****4.5 Stars*****

This is one hell of a bloody, gory, psychological thriller. It features Cain, the son of infamous serial killer Adam Killion. Ever since Cain's father was imprisoned for his crimes when Cain was just a young teen he's struggled with his identity as his father's son. Struggled to separate himself from his father's crimes. To relieve the guilt of his genetics, Cain helps out the police with a special ability he has, to solve murders and put killers away. 

Mercy is our female lead, she and Cain have a connection, she is the sole survivor of an evening 20 years ago when Killion (Cain's father) murdered her family. They both have been victims of this killer's cruelty. 

I really enjoyed this gritty thriller, it's particularly twisted at times but that just makes for a more intense read. I do wonder whether this series will intersect with the Fatal Dreams series as both series have similar themes. If so I'll be interested to find out how this comes about. 
This book finishes on a light cliff-hanger but nothing that will leave you frustrated. I look forward to the next book in this series and finding out where the author takes this story.

He's found her at last
Cain Killion knows himself to be a damaged man, his only saving grace the extrasensory connection to blood that he uses to catch murderers. His latest case takes a macabre turn when he discovers a familiar and haunting symbol linking the crime to his own horrific past-and only one woman could know what it means.

Only to lose her to a nightmare
Mercy Ledger is brave, resilient, beautiful-and in terrible danger. The moment he sees Mercy, Cain knows he's the one who can save her. He also knows he's beyond redemption. But the lines between good and evil blur and the only thing clear to Cain and Mercy is that they belong together. Love is the antidote for blood-but is their bond strong enough to overcome the evil that stalks them?
