Mercy’s Prince is the first book in the He Who Finds Mercy book series by Katy Huth Jones.
It is also the first book I finished in 2016. I had to take a break from reading the Drizzt series and Mercy’s Prince was it.
As second son of the King of Levathia, seventeen-year-old Valerian desires the quiet life of a scholarly monk. But when he fails to save his older brother in battle, Valerian must instead become crown prince.
While a traitorous knight schemes against him, Valerian meets Mercy, a pacifist Healer with whom he can speak mind-to-mind like the great dragons. Their bond emboldens Valerian to seek out the legendary dragons and ask for their help against the monsters who killed his brother.
Can Valerian survive the traitor’s assassins long enough to find the dragons? And if he does, can he convince them to lay aside their hatred of humans and help him save the land from destruction?
It can be found on Amazon for $2.99 or free if you are a Kindle Unlimited user.
Mercy’s Prince started out slow for my tastes. This is simply my opinion, I am a bit of an impatient reader. Once the story started to kick off, I was hooked. I enjoyed learning about Mercy as well as Valerian (love the name by the way). It was a tad predictable but overall a fun read.
