Summary

The Wall Street Journal bestselling series continues as Mercy Kilpatrick becomes embedded in the nightmare of a terrorist conspiracy.

The job: infiltrate a militia amassing illegal firearms in an isolated forest community. FBI agent Mercy Kilpatrick is the ideal candidate. She knows Oregon. She’s near the compound. And having been raised among survivalists, Mercy understands the mind-set of fanatics. Lay low, follow rules, do nothing to sound an alarm, and relinquish all contact with the outside world. She’s ready to blend in. 

As Mercy disappears into the winter hills, something just as foreboding emerges. Mercy’s fiancé, Eagle’s Nest police chief Truman Daly, is faced with a puzzling series of murders - three men dumped in random locations after execution-style shootings. 

Now, for Mercy, trapped in a culture where suspicion is second nature, and betrayal is punishable to the extreme, there is no way out. No way to call for help. And as plans for a catastrophic terrorist event escalate, there may be no way to stop them. Even if Mercy dies trying.

Masterful!

The fifth installment in the Mercy Kilpatrick series is absolutely fantastic. As with many series this book can be listened to as a stand alone but I would suggest listening to the series in order for continuity.
This book takes Mercy into any sane person's worst radical militia group nightmare. She's sent undercover to replace an ATF agent who became sick just days before she was to enter the compound. Unfortunately for Mercy she could be the agent's double. Once inside her contact is very cloak and dagger leaving Mercy feeling very alone. When he disappeared she finds she really is alone within this group seething with paranoia.
Meanwhile Mercy 's fiancé (Truman) is back in Eagle Rock not knowing where she is or what kind of danger she's in. His job is getting stranger by the day as unidentified bodies start turning up. It's not until a body is identified that the two cases collide.
To make things more interesting Mercy's father has been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and has decided that maybe he's made some mistakes.
If you have kindle unlimited this book is FREE to borrow with the kindle edition.
Teri Schnaubelt does an outstanding job narrating.
This book has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.

That feeling when a great series is over

Loved this series!!! Family means everything. Mercy is strong armed into going undercover with a radical anti-government group in an ATF sting. She can’t tell Truman where she’s going and has no way of communicating with the outside world. Will Mercy survive when the situation inside the compound begin to escalate? Meanwhile, Truman is investigating unidentified bodies that are being dumped in and around Deschutes county. Is there a connection to Mercy’s assignment?
This final book in the series is so full of action that you won’t want to stop reading/listening until the end. Great series and narration.

Really riveting!

I liked how the story never seemed to lag. Instead, the the tension kept building. This was a really good story without the detective/FIB cliches. I highly recommend this book.

A Hit!

Mercy and Truman are so thoroughly enjoyable as a professional team and a personal team. Their independence and chosen togetherness heighten the law enforcement intrigue. I have ready all of Elliot's books and look forward to the next one.

Review of A ‘Merciful Promise’..outstanding


For those of you who haven’t read this fantastic series I’ll just give you a bit of her beginning & why she got herself into this AMAZING predicament to an AMAZING series.

In book 1 is where we meet Mercy an FBI/agent/cop strong woman. Mercy grew up living off the land, off the grid, in rural Eagle’s Nest, Oregon. Pretend her family is like the crazy survivalists from real life compounds, but a tragedy pulls her family apart and it forces her to leave home. That is where she meets police chief Truman Daly, and though they clash on many occasions, they fall in love. Mercy is still a survivalist, & her home is basically a compound, because that’s the only way she’ll stay alive if anything happens in the world or the “crazy” people she knows try to ever kill her. She keeps everything imaginable to protect herself & her niece, who is basically has been raised as her daughter. Okay..spring ahead to what I’m reviewing, Book 6, “A Merciful Promise”the finale.

Her job, (well she sort of volunteers) is with another FBI agent, pretending she is a nurse & the agent is her boyfriend. The FBI knows the compound has illegal firearms & is in an isolated area of Oregon, deep in the woods. Agent Mercy Kilpatrick is the ideal candidate. She knows Oregon, and since she was raised as a survivalist in a somewhat “weird compound”. Mercy understands the mind-set of TRUE fanatics. But, & here’s the biggest but.. she kept her ‘volunteering’ away from Truman, and has NO WAY of contacting her loved ones, FBI associates, etc. This is a ‘secret agent mission’ imagine a cop going undercover in a prison & the only one who knows you’re there is your boss! Okay, since I’ve read reviews that said “I wish I had read all the books because I was so confused with all the character and who they were. This really isn’t a stand alone book?!” WELL, I just gave you readers a heads up *WITHOUT SPOILERS” 👊 Did I help? 😁

Book 6, and until the end, I did NOT realize we were ending my favorite series🤷‍♀️?! Well..It is fast, nerve wracking, listening at night was not the best thing to do cuz it kept me up all night...I loved it! It’s action, adventure, gasps..”OH-MY-GOSH-NO-WAY! Are you KIDDING? RUN!” that’s just a sample of how I felt throughout this book. The end showed me how Mercy had grown and *without giving away spoilers* she keeps going & going through “everything” to stay alive! Not only to stay alive, but keeping up a pretense without losing it. TO THE....you’ll see..

The narration was outstanding by Teri Schnaubelt..I jumped whenever there was something happening! I got so much into this book I nearly cried finding out it was the finale to the ‘Mercy’ series. Kudos to author Kendrea Elliot!

I’m not gonna be mushy, or BEG THE AUTHOR to add just ONE-little-everyone-will-purchase book..😁😁 No really, without *spoilers* that I didn’t give a hopeful reader. This was the most exciting finale to an absolutely fantastic series! I know I will absolutely miss Mercy and Truman. Their crazy, “where is she, oh Mercy I love you, please find me, I need you” relationship. And the great storylines with every ‘Mercy’ book I’ve listened to and read! Yes I will 💯 miss my Mercy...5 ⭐️ Plus ...👋

Mercy Kilpatrick

I've throughly enjoyed this book, and the previous 5 books. Narrator was excellent, bringing the characters to life. I hope this isn't the end of the series....
