Yes, I was going to bail on this series but I'm glad I stuck with it for this book. It is a lot of fun. Great relationship dynamics, Mercy kicks butt in the best way. My only issue is that I felt the story wrapped up fairly quickly. I wish we'd gotten a bit more time with Mercy and Adam. But it has made me want to read book 8 and since I'm wary of series with the same protagonists going beyond 5 books, that's saying something.
