Review: Mercy (A Short Story) By Cherie Marks


Charlie an eighteen year who lives inside the walls of the community in the middle of The Dead Forest. Charlie and her little sister was sent there by her mother. When her mother sent her there she sent her in men's clothing which Charlie doesn't understand. The community is surrouned by monsters.

The women are used for breeding. Charlie is dertermind to take very good care of her little sister and never allow this to happen to her. She is very upset that they would allow the women to be used in this way. Charlie comes to understand why her mother sent her there in men's clothing and knows she must protect her idenity for as long as possible.

Mercy is a very short story but at the same time is a very good read. I wished that it had been longer and we could have know more about Charile and her little sister where they came from. What reason did her mother send her there to live this kind of life. Who was her mother? Why did they send them outside the walls? I hope Cherie Marks has more plans for Mercy and we can learn more of Charlie's life and the story that she has to tell.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review Mercy. It is a scene from a larger work that I will publish at the end of July, barring any early Mayan, end-of-the world issues between now and then. Again, thank you, and I'm so glad you liked it.
