Synopsis: "When the fate of one is changed, everything changes. One person changes everything."
Mercy Singer died five months ago, but the doctor’s managed to bring her back. And she was told by her new therapist that it was normal to think there was danger around every corner, and that seeing things was part of the healing process. What Mercy hasn’t told anyone is how vivid her dreams are, how it’s not actually her dying in them, and she also hasn’t mentioned the conversations she’s had with people that vanish.
And when the new boy in town, Tristan Holmes, finds her freaking out in the street, claiming to see a man that isn’t there, she thinks her return to school might have been too soon. Until his sister approaches her, claiming to know what’s going on, and that she wants to help Mercy.
Now numbers keep floating around Mercy’s head, and she knows it’s a countdown to something big. There’s a darkness coming to Balefire Bay High, and she thinks she’s the only one that can stop it.
Review: Mercy Singer was the 3rd victim of a serial killer in her small town, but she was able to be revived by doctors as she was found in time. Five months later, she’s headed back to school after recuperating both physically and mentally. However, she hasn’t told anyone – not even her therapist – about her disturbing dreams of death and the people she sees when no one else does. Now she and her new friends, Eve and Tristan, must try to stop the evil on its way as she learns of the part she now plays in the universe.
You can’t escape your fate, except Mercy Singer does by being revived after her murder. What Mercy doesn’t know is she now has a role to play in upcoming events, but right now she’s just frightened by her dreams and the people only she can see. ‘Threads of Chaos’ is an interesting story of the role fate plays in our lives and what happens when fate’s course is changed. Mercy finds her life irrevocably altered and there are plenty of twists and turns for her to navigate. I really like the characters and I can understand Mercy’s emotional rollercoaster throughout the story. I’m very interested in seeing where life and ‘fate’ takes Mercy next. As a side note: I thought Mercy’s last name was clever – Singer, which is the name of a popular sewing machine.
