Publisher's Summary

A dark stand-alone 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.

BUY THIS BOOK!

There was nothing in this book that was perfect. Beautifully written. Beautifully narrated. It was too short. If there are sequels, I will be first in line to preorder.

It's loosely based on old Norse sagas, with similar themes of the outsider(s) coming in to save a town, in hopes of glory and gold. This time, though, it's four young women from varied backgrounds, all of whom are wonderfully individualized, and interesting.

It's a wonderful world, and there are so many more opportunities in these characters and the setting to explore.
