Review of Blood Mercury by Malachi King
This novella contains so much more than its length might imply, more than I expected. To begin with I experienced sadness on behalf of the characters, empathy, and sympathy. Soon I passed into a stage of dystopian despair, thinking “oh, I can see how contemporary society could devolve into this, and oh I sure hope and pray it does not.” But before the end, I found hope-hope in the characters, hope that someone could anchor in moral uprightness and “do the right thing.” That is what the story left me with: hope. I also hope-that there will be sequels. I really hope to find out how the lead characters come out.
