The Merciless II by Danielle Vega has taken me more than a month to finish reading this book.  I didn't read a whole lot in July, as you can tell.  Life (and Dexter) got in the way of reading.  But I finally finished The Merciless II.

This was very much a continuation of the first book.  It was a lot of fun and definitely will keep you on the edge of your seat at times.  Much like the first one, it has a definite creepy factor to it. If you like tales of evil, the devil, exorcism, or the like, you will enjoy this one.  But if you haven't read The Merciless, I would read it first before diving in to this one.   

From Amazon:

Danielle Vega—YA’s answer to Stephen King—once again brings major scares in the spine-tingling sequel to horror hit The Merciless, which MTV calls “Mean Girls meets The Exorcist.”

Sofia is still processing the horrific truth of what happened when she and three friends performed an exorcism that spiraled horribly out of control. Ever since that night, Sofia has been haunted by bloody and demonic visions. Her therapist says they’re all in her head, but to Sofia they feel chillingly real. She just wants to get out of town, start fresh someplace else . . . until her mother dies suddenly, and Sofia gets her wish.

Sofia is sent to St. Mary’s, a creepy Catholic boarding school in Mississippi. There, seemingly everyone is doing penance for something, most of all the mysterious Jude, for whom Sofia can’t help feeling an unshakeable attraction. But when Sofia and Jude confide in each other about their pasts, something flips in him. He becomes convinced that Sofia is possessed by the devil. . . . Is an exorcism the only way to save her eternal soul?

Readers won’t be able to look away from this terrifying read full of twists and turns that will leave them wondering, Is there evil in all of us?
