Book Review: Nameless by Mercedes M. Yardley
Author: Mercedes M. Yardley
Enoyment Rating: **

Content Alert: violence, some mild language
In the room right in front of you, you may see humans, you may see no one. If Luna Masterson were with you, chances are good that she would see demons. For as long as she can remember, these demons have followed her everywhere, trying to get her to make choices to advance their demony agenda. As a result, Luna is prickly. The only people she's truly close to are her brother and his one-year-old daughter, and when that daughter goes missing, Luna won't stop until she's found her, no matter where the demons lead her.
Luna is a really engaging protagonist. She's very flawed but has a good heart, which makes her relatable. She's also funny, tough, and brave in her actions even if she's scared on the inside. She's also quick to judge and impulsive. I enjoyed her budding relationship with Reed Taylor (a guy who could see angels, and therefore an interesting foil), but didn't like the feeling that we were moving from one big action movie scene to the next. If this book were made into a movie, they'd have to have a big budget for demonic fight scenes-- Nameless is chock full of them.
