“They called us the Mercies, or sometimes the Boneless Mercies. They said we were shadows, ghosts, and if you touched our skin we dissolved into smoke.”
Some people are marked for death. The Mercies are those who bring it. Death-traders hired to kill quickly and gently, like Frey, Ovie, Juniper and Runa. It is a cursed job: a job for women only. Men won’t do this sad, dark work. But then Frey hears of a monster killing without mercy. A beast ravaging a northern jarldom, slaughtering men, women and children alike. She has no family, no home and nothing to lose. She’s going to kill it – mercifully or not. It’s her one stab at glory. But glory comes at a price…
- A bold and breathtaking YA fantasy set in an extraordinary new world
- Perfect for fans of V.E. Schwab, Leigh Bardugo and Melinda Salisbury
- Strikingly original tale of a band of mercenary females seeking glory
- Combines unforgettably strong heroines with glorious, lyrical writing
“Fierce and glorious, this story of outcast girls defying fate utterly bewitched me. Tucholke is a gorgeous writer.” Laini Taylor
“Ruthless and lyrical, heart-warming and blood-chilling… It will sing to a new generation of heroes.” Samantha Shannon
