The MercilessRed 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 This is a crazy weird insanely messed up book but kinda awesomeI am a big fan of all things scary and the horror genre and I think this book lives up to that titleThe characters weren't great it was predictable at times but the plot overall was insane I think the gruesomehorrific scenes were done very well they definitely gave me goosebumps and made me look away at times and remind myself that this isn't realThe girls in this book are completely deranged and delusional almost unbelievably so If you can put aside rational thought and let this book suck you into its demented story then you will be in for a memorable journeyI would NOT recommend this to people who get scared easily However it is definitely YOUNG ADULT horror I think people who like scary stuff will enjoy this book for its entertainment drama and crazy plot If you are looking for a YA book that will send shivers down your spine and make you literally say wtf then this one is for you It also deals with exorcisms and spiritual stuff so if you aren't comfortable with that then I wouldn't recommend thisI believe this is going to be a series which I am on the fence about I think it would be cool if this was a stand alone but I am interested to read the seuels
