It is the end of days…

Krystal has spent years locked in isolation, enduring torture day after day. It might drive a lesser woman mad. Her sudden freedom leads to a journey across the forbidding landscape. Unexpected allies appear, and new challenges block their path. Embracing every opportunity as a chance, Krystal must trust these five lost souls, her wild ability to heal, and most of all—herself.

They owe a debt they cannot pay…

Titus, Paden, Zeke, Ryland, and Jett spent years in bespelled servitude. Slaves to the unforgivable, they seek to atone for misdeeds beyond their power. Discovering a Sister alone in the woods, they pledge themselves to her service. Saving Krystal is more than a means to an end, though, as one by one she restores their hope, love, and faith. They will need all of their strength and hers. Loving her saved them, but losing her may save the world.

Compassion Be Damned is the fourth book in the Last Hope series by author Rebecca Royce.  This is part of an on-going series and should be read in order. I will admit I did not read this series in order. I was a tad lost on finer details. The main story itself though really kept my attention and was easily understood.  However, I really think you should read this book in order.
In this book, we meet Krystal. She is a Sister. Not by choice but because the Orals chose her.  She tries to be a good Sister to fight the demons, but she has no offensive powers. She can heal others, not herself, but she cannot do anything harmful to demons.  So this causes her to doubt herself.
Then there is Sister Katherine, the head Sister. She wants Krystal for her own purposes. There is a demon that wants to possess Krystal. Krystal’s saving grace is she can stop it from possessing her.
This leads to her being locked away. For three years. 
Once she is rescued she meets Titus, Paden, Zeke, Ryland, and Jett.  Her guardians of sorts. They are to protect her.
They are trying to redeem themselves. I liked each of them very much.  They each bring something different to the table. Ry is the tough one, Paden is more romantic and sweet, Jett is a tad dark, and Titus is a true born leader.
Throw in a shape-shifting crow into the mix and you have a story I couldn’t stop reading.  This book is the kind of story you read when you have time to sink into a world and really get into what you are reading. I think fans of the series will love this book. There is action, adventure, love, and mystery.  I know I loved it and highly suggest reading this one.
