No Mercy; Sherrilyn Kenyon

Hardcover: 352 pages
Publisher: St. Martin's Press; First Edition edition (September 7, 2010)
Language: English


Live fast, fight hard and if you have to die then take as many of your enemies with you as you can. That is the Amazon credo and it was one Samia lived and died by. Now in contemporary New Orleans, the immortal Amazon warrior is about to learn that there’s a worse evil coming to slaughter mankind than she’s ever faced before.
Shapeshifter Dev Peltier has stood guard at the front of Sanctuary for almost two hundred years and in that time, he’s seen it all. Or so he thought. Now their enemies have discovered a new source of power- one that makes a mockery of anything faced to date.
The war is on and Dev and Sam are guarding ground zero. But in order to win, they will have to break the most cardinal of all rules and pray it doesn’t unravel the universe as we know it.

My Review

I am a raving fan of Sherrilyn. I actually started out reading I think the 16th book in the Dark Hunters series and fell in love. I have devoured. I believe almost everyone of the rest of that series. I was asked to read and review No Mercy and since before taking my haitus I hadn't gotten a chance to review it. I guess my hiatus was a good thing.

  If you are Paranomal romance lover then you know alot of the books have lame attempts at using catchy phrases in other languages. Such as a main character would repeat the same thing when something bad was about to happen. Kenyon manages to use these phrases with ease and style. I never feel annoyed while reading. The main characters are Dev and Sam. Dev took center stage. A delicous bad boy with warmth at heart. The story wasn't rushed but I felt I was on a joy ride. Sams entance into No Mercy was something to remember though I could feel the power of her character pour right off the pages. If I were to look back and reflect on this I would remember that, her as a badass. There is always a type of patern in Paranormal reads but I think Kenyon has mastered it. I never get tired of reading one of her greatly written books. I am not sure I would rate this higher then some of her other books but it's not one to miss either. That's also the beauty in her writing you can pick up any of her books and not feel lost in the series. They all start and end usually with fresh characters. She does have some characters from other books pop up in them sometimes.  Would I reccommend No Mercy, ABSOLUTELY.

I've heard great things about Sherrilyn's books, but I haven't read any yet. You made me want to change that! :-)

I haven't read any of Sherrilyn Kennyon's books but I know she has written a lot. I'm sure one day I will eventually pick one up to try.
