About Karen Plaisance

Karen Plaisance is not my real name. It is the pseudonym I use to keep my friends and family from finding out what outrageous drivel I write. I am a full time licensed massage therapist and a part time writer of pointless twaddle you will never read. When not writing twaddle or rubbing aching backs, I am busy being Agnostic, fence sitters of the religious world. For those of you who have already purchased my book, I am so terribly, terribly sorry.

Mercy Bound is my cup of mocha-choco-latte! What a wonderful beginning for a new urban fantasy series. I loved the world building and the characters who are colorful and loaded with extraordinary personalities. The writing is clean and very well done. At times it was difficult to tell who is a bad guy and who the good guys are and this made for a wonderful ride with new revelations around every corner. Mercy is a great protagonist. She is a death oracle who is able to see when and how someone is going to die and is fated to die a horrible death. She comes home to be with her aunt and while seeking a job to help with expenses her good intentions have her stumbling into a real muddle that just keeps getting worse and worse. There is action, plenty of snarky talk, betrayal, and through it all Mercy continues to show strength of character and just keeps going providing wonderful entertainment to the very end. The story's conclusion is very satisfying and leaves an opening for future installments, which I cannot wait to dive into and continue the journey. I requested this book from the author and received it with a request for my honest review without any compensation whatsoever, other than the joy of reading a new book.

Woooohoooo, the South has Risen!! That's right people, we have a new southern vampire series to warm or hearts with. I so thoroughly enjoyed this novel- it was entertaining, fast paced, and had enough plot twists to keep me on my toes. Mercy Cross is a death oracle. She is also a band tee sporting, doc marten wearing, kick-ass girl who lives with her aunt- a vegan witch. Mercy lands herself smack dab in the middle of a political vampire war set in New Orleans. This story had a familiar feel to it, if you love paranormal fiction, you know what I mean. All my favorites made an appearance: Vampires, Witches, and Wears... oh my! This book had all the elements that made me love Sookie, but without the terrible wardrobe choices. I actually think Mercy is a little more complex and much more headstrong than a certain telepathic waitress. I can't wait to see what will happen next... I hope this is a long series with lots more to be seen of my hunky cowboy vampire~ Woogie Bear.

The Mercy's biting sarcastic wit had me in stitches. Can't wait for the next one to come out.

Something along the lines of a Sookie Stackhouse mystery. Loved it!

If a friend of mine hadn't compelled me to read this book, I wouldn't have bothered. After reading the first chapter, however, I was glad she did. I went into this expecting another one of those vampire/werewolf chick-fic books, and while the author doesn't break any new ground in the paranormal romance genre she chose, it was still funny enough to hold my attention. There are one or two typos, but nothing you wouldn't expect from an indie book. All in all, a good read.
