Edge of Mercy C.C Marks Rating: 4 In a shielded off place, there is a small group of humans that have managed to keep from being infected with the strange disease that has emerged, wiping out people and making them transform into beast-like creatures. But in order to survive, this place - and its Council - refuse to allow women entry, because something about the women attracts the attention of the beasts outside the barrier and challenges their safety. Charlie and his little sister were taken in when they stumbled across this place - but it is far from a haven and everyday Charlie fears for his own life. Why? Because Charlie is actually Charlotte; a girl. And if the Council were to ever find out she, and her sister, would be in grave danger. As she uncovers the dark secrets that make up the Council and the decisions they make, Charlotte has a choice: to reveal the truth to those she cares about and change life for everyone or to keep her and her sister safe. This story explores what makes a person good, whether bad people deserve a loveless fate, whether ones past can determine ones future and most importantly whether doing the right thing - even at a cost - is worth it. A thrilling tale with a daring heroine who isn't afraid to be strong and stand up in the face of injustice - who admits her weaknesses and soldiers on in a way that is equal to, or better than, the strength of any man.
