THE OFFICE OF MERCY (Feb. 2012, Viking) is her first novel. In a starred review, Booklist called it, “[A] horrifically brutal, compelling debut. . . . A grim muse on a future with shades of The Hunger Games, Djanikian’s first offering should attract readers voracious for this popular sub-genre.” Find Ariel on Twitter @ArielDjanikian.
