Finished The Merciless II by Danielle Vega.
This is only slightly less intense than its predecessor. Sofia is now at a Catholic boarding school (her mom dies early on in the book) but she’s still haunted by the events in the first book. And bad things happen around her…
OK, as I’ve come to expect from Danielle Vega, this book is incredibly messed up. It’s creepy and graphic and beyond unsettling. (And really fun, if you like being scared.)
There’s going to be a third one next year. I can’t wait.
