Book One of
The Mercy Chronicles
Unable to feel emotions, angels are God’s devoted soldiers, who are tasked with carrying out God’s will. One of which is to answer the question: can angels handle the gift of emotions without it interfering with their loyalty to God?
Angel Laramie is given emotions as a trial to decide once and for all if angels are ready to feel again. However, she soon becomes sidetracked by an infatuation with a human called Maggie, prompting her to neglect her orders and allow her mission to fail. She returns to her superiors in hopes of helping the human only to learn her feelings were a test. Her failure means her banishment to Earth until she fades away forever.
Magda Mercy is a twenty-three-year-old college student with dreams of becoming a doctor. Her life changes forever when her brother returns on leave from the military with devastating family news.
In exile, Laramie is confronted by Lucifer with a confounding revelation that changes everything Laramie has ever known as an angel. Lucifer presents an offer of eventual immortality in exchange for Laramie’s ceaseless fidelity. When Laramie declines, Lucifer lashes out by tormenting the innocent Maggie as punishment for Laramie’s refusal. Laramie must now do everything in her power to save Maggie and prevent Lucifer from realizing his goals, even if it means reaching oblivion sooner.
Included in The Bloodshed Of The Betrayed are mentions of self-harm, assault, parental abuse, blood, suicide, death, insomnia, eating disorders/mental illnesses, domestic abuse, sexual assault, and rape.

New dust jacket design
Discreet Cover (no mentions of LGBTQ+ themes within book)
Wider distribution range
Due to various aspects regarding the self-publishing platform I used to design and organize this particular edition version of my book (elements including the cost of dust jacket and gloss, the hard bound book itself, colour printing of the pages in the content of the book for the Character Art, etc.), the price of this version is higher than other editions of my book. While I really wanted to make this edition as accessible to you as possible, that meant (in this instance) that it is more expensive to buy. Please know that the pricing I chose was as low as possible when considering sustainable royalties for myself and based on affordability for you all, the readers. Thank you.
