“Demon’s Mercy,” the ninth book in Rebecca Zanetti’s gripping “Dark Protectors” series, offers readers a tantalizing tale of forbidden desires, dangerous duties, and the unexpected paths that love can take. This installment stands out with its intriguing blend of characters: Mercy O’Malley, a feisty fairy with a deep-seated aversion to killing, and Logan Kyllwood, a vampire demon with a destiny that could change the balance of power in their supernatural world.

Mercy’s assignment to eliminate Logan takes a turn for the unexpected when faced with the task of ending his life, she finds herself captivated by his physical allure and the intensity of his presence. This initial attraction, fueled by Logan’s green eyes and undeniable charm, morphs into a decision that alters the course of both their lives—kidnapping over killing. Mercy’s struggle to reconcile her mission with her growing feelings for Logan encapsulates the novel’s core conflict: the battle between duty and desire.


Logan Kyllwood, the youngest of his formidable family, is no stranger to the specters of death and violence that shadow his existence. His readiness to undergo a terrifying ritual to become one of the Seven, protectors against the gravest of evils, speaks to his commitment to his cause. However, Mercy’s interference introduces a complexity to his path, challenging his convictions and igniting a need for someone he perceives as an unlikely partner.

The dynamics between Mercy and Logan are electric, a dance of mutual fascination and underlying tensions. Their interactions, from the seedy bars of Scotland to the broader canvas of their supernatural battleground, are charged with both danger and an undeniable attraction. Zanetti masterfully crafts a narrative where each moment of closeness, each confrontation, layers their relationship with depth, revealing characters that are as multi-dimensional as they are compelling.

“Demon’s Mercy” weaves themes of loyalty, sacrifice, and the transformative power of love through a plot brimming with action and suspense. Mercy’s reluctance to fulfill her deadly assignment and Logan’s determination to face his fate head-on collide in a story that explores the lengths to which individuals will go to protect what they believe in, even when it means defying the expectations of their worlds.

Praise for the “Dark Protectors” series underscores Zanetti’s talent for combining “sizzling sex scenes and a memorable cast” with “a fast-paced, excitement-filled explosion of action.” “Demon’s Mercy” lives up to this acclaim, delivering a story that is not only a thrilling addition to the series but also a deep dive into the hearts of two characters caught in the crossfire of an ancient war.

“Demon’s Mercy” is a standout installment in the “Dark Protectors” saga, offering a potent mix of romance, conflict, and the pursuit of redemption. Rebecca Zanetti continues to enchant and enthrall with her storytelling prowess, inviting readers into a world where love can emerge in the most unexpected places, proving once again that even amidst the darkest of conflicts, mercy—and love—can prevail.
