Mercy's emotional health
« on: September 14, 2007, 05:04:01 pm »
I just finished rereading Blood Bound today and as usual new things leapt out at me.  Mercy made a very hard decision to kill Andre.  She was very torn several times about whether it was the "right" thing to do.  Will she ever accept/forgive herself for essentially murdering Andre?  I know Stefan said it was self-defense and I know Andre was evil and deserved to be punished, but I am wondering how Mercy is holding up after that decision.  She has a very hard time with killing the werewolf in Moon Called and I assume this would be worse for her.

LOL -- nice Kitty
Mercy is dealing with a number of things at the beginning of Iron Kissed -- killing Andre, knowing that when Marsilia figures out who killed him that she's probably dead . . .

Happily, before she can work herself up to an existential meltdown, she is distracted by the even more horrible things that happen in Iron Kissed.  <grin>  Being an Urban Fantasy heroine is Not for wimps.
