    1. I loved the story of Mercy and Valerian. The amazing thing about this story, or I should say one of the amazing things, is that you can FEEL the love the author put into this story. It’s in the writing like a secret ingredient for a family recipe. You can taste it, but it isn’t something that can just be copied. The world is a mix between medieval and fantasy. There’s a variety of dragons, monsters, and humans. There’s a Keep, garrisons, and all the touches you expect for a medieval stor [...]

    2. Fantasy, Action, Suspense, Supernatural, and Romance, oh my! Mercy's Prince is a wonderful story where good vs. evil. The good guys are not always left unscathed from their pursuits. There is much sorrow bestowed on some and death does not elude even the best inhabitants of Levathia. That's where fiction resembles true life.The multi-dimensional characters are extremely detailed to where I felt I knew them, especially Price Valerian and Mercy. The action is rampant, a real page turner that does [...]

    3. We are proud to announce that MERCY’S PRINCE by Katy Huth Jones is a B.R.A.G.Medallion Honoree. This tells a reader that this book is well worth their time and money!

    4. This story was nothing short of a joy to read. It's always refreshing to get totally immersed in a story without being jarred back to reality by misspellings, grammar goofs and other writing faux pas. As a self-declared grammar Nazi, I truly appreciated a book that has been so well-written and meticulously edited. But this is certainly not the only thing I loved about this book.The characters jump right into your heart, at least the good ones. I love the cover, which captures the spirit of Princ [...]

    5. Action, love, and Dragons! What more can you ask for? The second I began reading till the very end, I was in a trance. I couldn't focus on anything else but this book and its beautifully written prose. The action is heart-stopping, the love is pure, and the emotions are real. I fell in love with the character of Prince Valerian. Though not your typical prince who is skilled at fighting, this one would rather study history and stay with the monks. His journey not only makes him grow, but makes yo [...]

    6. I had this book in my TBR list for a while before I started it. I wasn't but a few pages in and wondered how on earth I had waited so long. From the very beginning, the author drew me into a world full of battle, dragons, love, and suspense. When I did have to put the book down, it was with great difficulty. This is one of the few books I've read that I turned right around and told my husband, "You have to read this, too!"This is a book I will read again and I wouldn't be the least bit surprised [...]

    7. Mercy's Prince has been sitting on my Kindle for half a year now, and I'm so glad I finally took the time to read it. It is a wonderful fantasy novel full of adventure, swordplay, chivalry, magic, dragons, and romance. Above all, there is a lovely blooming romance between Mercy and Prince Valerian. This is one of the best indie books I've ever read, and I'm not entirely sure why it isn't with a big publisher. I think fans of Eragon, Dragonheart, and Willow will enjoy this high fantasy. It is tec [...]

    8. Poignant and grippingIt is rare to find a story so compelling it lingers long after you put it aside. This is one of those tales, filled with adventure, romance, magic and of course dragons. The characters are superb, the setting epic and colorful, the villains appropriately despicable. I especially liked the sweeping grand scale feel of the story, and even though it made me cry at times I still loved it.The romance did move a little fast for my taste, but there are factors that could have made [...]

    9. So enjoyableThis was such a great story and I enjoyed it so much. If you love Christian fantasy, romance, excitement and dragons this series is for you. Can't wait to start the next book in the series and see what happens to Valerian and Mercy. Highly recommended.

    10. This is the second book I've read by Ms. Jones, and she is a good writer. This novel was a bit long for me; I rarely read fiction that's over 400 pages. Short attention span, I guess. However, I like that this story could appeal to teenage boys as much as to girls. It was not heavy in the romance area but had a lot of interesting detail having to do with warriors and battle. That's where I skimmed because I wanted to move forward to the potential romance. :-) I personally like stories with a fem [...]

    11. In this medieval-style fantasy with knights and dragons, seventeen-year-old Prince Valerian d’Alden, as the second son of King Orland and Queen Winifred of Levathia, is prepared for and in fact desires the quiet life of a scholarly monk. However, when the kingdom is attacked by the Mohorovians, a lizard-like horde from the desert, Valerian must serve as squire to his older brother, Crown Prince Waryn. During an ambush, his brother is killed. The Levathian general Sir Caelis Reed, his own fathe [...]

    12. I completely adored Mercy's Prince!! It had fantasy elements, dragons, romance and just a whole lot of epic-ness. The characters were portrayed with a vivacity that was each their own and helped with the character's development. I like it when I can connect to them and I really did in this one!I loved the plot, the characters, the world-building, the riveting action and the author's writing was amazing!! I absolutely recommend this book and the rest as well! It's worth your time.

    13. I thought this book was an amazing read. It engrossed me from start to finish. I loved the stories of Valerian and Mercy as they uncovered their gifts, defeated the enemy, and learnt to love one another. And of course dragons! Highly recommended. Book two is on my to read list.

    14. Mercy's Prince is a rich, well rounded story. I adored the strong thread of romance, betrothal, commitment, and love that runs through, but never fear - Mercy's Prince is much more than a romance. Bravery, loss, learning to live, hardships and conquering them, it's all here. Recommended for 15+.

    15. Mercy's PrinceI really enjoyed this book. It has intrigue, romance, and lots of action. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series. I highly recommend this book to everyone.

    16. I received a copy of this book in return for an honest review.I was prepared to give this review a 3 and stop reading shortly after I started. Why? Well, I was kind of turned off when the attackers turned out to be Lizard Men. It just wasn't my kind of thing. But I have this thing about, if you promised to read and review it, you should read it and give the review a fair chance.Well I was pleasantly surprised. I kept reading and the more I did, the more I fell in love with Valerian, Kieran, Merc [...]

    17. This is definitely my kind of book. It reminded me of the ” a song of fire and ice” series in some ways. Mainly the time period and the dragons.I really enjoyed reading this book. The character development is well done. I felt like I really got to know the characters. From the beginning it’s nonstop action. The characters are into one situation after another. It really makes it hard to put down. I kept telling myself more page…just one more page. I got lost in this world. The description [...]

    18. I’m honestly impressed withMercy’s Prince . The title is beautiful and unlike other titles I’ve seen and the plot, characters, and writing were just as wonderful.Ever tried to cut a pie for people who are insistent on everyone having the same sized slice? It’s pretty difficult. But Jones perfectly managed to slice this “book pie” in equal parts for character development, romance, and adventure. There was still one thing that made me feel a bit sick, but as you can see,Mercy’s Princ [...]

    19. Completely entranced My only complaint was that the book was too long. (I know, lame complaint) I kept reading and reading, pressing on to the end, because I was dying to finish it, but it took me forever.I was completely caught up on the characters' lives. Even in the beginning, when the novel took a while to take off, I found every detail interesting. This is a new world with things like burrowing dragons and lizard men. The novel follows three characters, two of which I knew would converge at [...]

    20. Beautiful storytellingThere are times when you read a book with such enjoyment, it is impossible to put down. Mercy's Prince showcases the skills of a very, very fine author - the pacing and setting are perfect, the characters daring and complex, the driving motifs of the narrative powerful and thought-provoking. Prince Valerian is a scholarly, peace-loving prince thrust into the forefront of the kingdom's action after the untimely death of his illustrious older brother, who had been groomed to [...]

    21. What a great book! Price Valerian is a second son, so he knows the throne is not in his future, until a unexpected attaxk takes the life of his older brother, the beloved battle harder prince of the land, and now Valerian must put aside his books and embrace a life of battle. Mercy, who's life has been struggle and hardship feels like she's meant for more then to be married off to the religious leader of her village. But war is coming to the whole land, and there's a lot of changes coming for Va [...]

    22. "Mercy's Prince" by Katy Huth Jones is a beautifully written novel, which I thoroughly enjoyed reading.In this first book of a series, Ms Huth has crafted a complete fantasy world, but unlike many others she gives the reader room to breathe and space to explore, eschewing the often heavy-handed and overly descriptive (and tedious) world-building that is so often a fatal flaw in novels of this genre.The story starts quickly and we are immediately plunged into the heart of one of the main conflict [...]

    23. This is quite possibly one of the best indie books I've ever read.I immediately fell in love with both Valerian and Mercy. I liked that the story didn't go all the stereotypical places, both in the prince-who-doesn't-want-to-be-a-prince and the girl-whose-marriage-has-been-arranged. The characters were believable and displayed a lot of growth through the story.Valerian has the ability to read others thoughts, which the author refers to as Seeing. I liked that there was this simple, clever distin [...]

    24. A truly wonderful tale filled with enchantment, battles and dragons.Being the second son, Prince Valerian thinks his life is set, but things are about to change.Mercy, a young girl from the Brethren is also changed by shocking events.That's it, as I don't give spoilers. However, I will say that this well written fantasy had me hooked from the beginning keeping my interest until the end. It has all the ingredients a reader enjoys with themes such as good v evil, love, intrigue and mystery.The cha [...]

    25. If there's one thing I love, it's a good bad guy, and this story has not only that, but a myriad of great characters. Throw this together with a medieval setting of sword fights and dragons, and you're in for a fantasy tale to add to your list of favourites.I'd really like to talk about the characters before anything else, simply because they were incredibly engaging. If there's one thing Jones can do well, it's character development. Prince Valerian has to live up to the shadow of his brother a [...]

    26. Valerian is second in line to the throne until his brother is killed in battle. Now the Crown Prince, Valerian must live up to his father’s expectations and become a warrior. While he’s struggling with his fate, Mercy lives in a nearby village and has to discover her destiny. Aware only recently of her healing power, she has no idea how extensive her gifts are until forced to use them. When Valerian and Mercy meet, they slowly realize they belong together. United, they can defeat the enemy. [...]

    27. Once I'd started reading this, I couldn't stop. some extremely well crated characters that you couldn't help rooting for. I hope Kieron gets the girl in the next book, which I have already bought.A very interesting twist on the typical dragon theme, and also interesting use of powers.A nice fluid voice and style. I was disappointed when I had finished, until I realised there was a second book, but at 3AM I was definitely not going to start reading that.I received this book for free in exchange f [...]

    28. I found this a wonderful and delightful read. It begins with Valarian, the young prince thrust into the position of crown prince after his brother's death. While adjusting to his position, Valarian discovers an imminent invasion that will destroy them all without the aid of the dragons.Mercy's Prince is about finding love and holding onto your ideals through hardship and trials. It's not appropriate for younger readers because of sappy love scenes(my twelve-year-old informed me).People who like [...]

    29. A good all round fantasy novel. Well written with some excellent world building and characters you really get behind the plot was slickly constructed whilst the narrative pushes along at a good pace. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
