Product description

"Forgive us, Father, for we have sinned" Brooklyn Stevens sits in a pool of her own blood, tied up and gagged. No one outside of these dank basement walls knows she's here. No one can hear her scream. Sofia Flores knows she shouldn't have gotten involved. When she befriended Riley, Grace, and Alexis on her first day at school, she admired them, with their perfect hair and their good-girl ways. They said they wanted to save Brooklyn. They wanted to help her. Sofia didn't realize they believed Brooklyn was possessed. Now, Riley and the girls are performing an exorcism on Brooklyn--but their idea of an exorcism is closer to torture than salvation. All Sofia wants is to get out of this house. But there is no way out. Sofia can't go against the other girls . . . unless she wants to be next. . . . In this chilling debut, Danielle Vega delivers blood-curdling suspense and terror on every page. By the shockingly twisted end, readers will be faced with the most haunting question of all: Is there evil in all of us?

Review quote

Praise for "The Merciless" "It'll take a sturdy reader not to keep flinching--or put this exercise in sensation down altogether." -"Kirkus" "This pulse-pounding, debut novel creates a wickedly creepy atmosphere where mean girls quickly turn homicidal." -"SLJ" "Page-to-page Stephen King-style terror builds, asking the question, 'How much evil is inside every one of us?' Readers will gasp out loud more than a few times, so beware." -"Booklist" "After finishing this gruesome and heart-racing novel, readers will be left wondering if the devil is in us all." -"VOYA"
