Editorial Reviews


“Graham keeps up with the fast pace of this book and uses his acting experience to bring the characters to life, even the dead ones!” – SFCrowsNest.com

“It’s rare to listen to an audiobook in which one speaker handles the range from macho male to vulnerable female roles so well...Fans will revel in No Mercy, especially this audiobook version that accentuates the amusing dialogue between Dev and Sam.” – BookLoons.com

“Listening to this audio of the book No Mercy was a very captivating way to enjoy this series. The narrator [gave] life to one of the favorite shifters in this series and [gave] him the extra spark of humor and sensuality that you do not get at times while reading the print…Holter Graham did a great job at bringing not only Dev to life but Sam and the other Dark hunter characters as well. If you haven’t tried listening to an audio book before and are a fan of the series, I would seriously recommend trying this one out.” – Bitten by Books

From the Back Cover

#1 New York Times bestselling author Sherrilyn Kenyon brings us back to the electrifying world of the Dark-Hunters and introduces us to a brazen heroine for whom there is


Live fast, fight hard―and if you have to die, 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. But today, in contemporary New Orleans, the immortal Amazon warrior is about to learn that there's a worse evil coming to slaughter mankind than she ever could have imagined.

"[A] publishing phenomenon…[Sherrilyn Kenyon is] the reigning queen of the wildly successful paranormal scene."―Publishers Weekly

Meet Dev Peltier. A shapeshifter who has stood guard at the front of Sanctuary for almost two hundred years, he's seen it all―or so he thought. His enemies have just discovered a new source of power―one that makes a mockery of anything faced to date. Now the war is on and it's up to Dev and Samia to guard 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…

More About the Author

The #1 New York Times bestselling author, Sherrilyn Kenyon, who is proud of her mixed Cherokee heritage, lives a life of extraordinary danger... as does any woman with three sons, a husband, a menagerie of pets and a collection of swords that all of the above have a major fixation with. But when not running interference (or dashing off to the emergency room), she's found chained to her computer where she likes to play with all her imaginary friends. With more than thirty million copies of her books in print, in over one hundred countries, she certainly has a lot of friends to play with too.

Her books appear regularly at the coveted #1 bestselling spot. This extraordinary bestseller continues to top every genre she writes. Her current series include: The Dark-Hunters, The League, Chronicles of Nick and Beladors. Since 2004, she has placed more than 80 novels on the New York Times list in all formats including manga.

Her Lords of Avalon novels have been adapted by Marvel and her Dark-Hunter novels are now a New York Times bestselling manga published by St. Martins, and her Chronicles of Nick series is adapted by Yen Press. Her Dark-Hunters and Chronicles of Nick series are both soon to be major motion picture releases.

I am a big Sherrilyn Kenyon fan from the start till Bad Moon Rising and this book No Mercy. It looks like it was done in a rush to meet a deadline because not only it is short, it's also sold as a Hardcover book. The same sexual tension/ Innuendo. Not much background about this two lovers Dev and Sammia. Very disappointing. Paging Ms. Kenyon please revert to your old ways of giving us a funny, heart wrenching story with loveable characters and entertaining. We want the same flawless story plot that we can relate.Sad to say the last 2 books of Dark Hunter Series did not impressed me at all. I was very underwhelmed.

Sometimes it seems like there are four different people writing these books b/c they range from terrible to fantastic. I started out loving this book because the wit is there in full force--laugh out loud stuff. Dev has been one of my favorite characters since he first appeared so I was really excited about his book and I recommend reading it though it does not prove to be anything like the fast paced and filled out story telling we sometimes get from the DH series. There are lots of things left unexplained and the story gets wrapped up in a neat little epilogue that sort of left me flat. One thing I noticed and appreciated was that this book seemed to jump genres a bit from Paranormal Romance that started the series into Urban Fantasy--it's extremely PG-13. A good read, but left me on the fence about continuing the series.

While I really like Sherrilyn Kenyon's books, her more recent ones have not been up to par. I liked No Mercy but felt that it could have been better. The main characters Dev and Samia could have been fleshed out a bit more and I just felt like their love story was rushed.Also, I really wish Kenyon would put a hold on introducing so many different demons in one book. It's really hard to remember that info plus info in past books about stuff we should already know. The only reason I bought this book was because I was craving scenes of Savitar and Thorn. They are the only characters I'm interested in at this point(with exception of Jaden and a few others)and LOVE reading any little tidbit about them. Overall, it felt like she didn't spend a lot of time on this book and sadly, it shows(bad editing,wide-azz margins,fast paced with little romance,and jokes she has to go to great depths to explain to us).

Basically, I'd recommend borrowing this book from the library because you will be mighty upset that you spent hard earned cash on another Sherrilyn Kenyon book that is not very good quality.

I have been following the Dark-Hunter series for years. But I think this is the book that has convinced me to stop. Here we have the story of Dev, one of the Wise cracking, trash talking Peltier Bears and Amazon Dark-Hunter Sam Savage. Sam has the ability of pyschometry so anytime she touches something or someone, she sees their memories and feels their emotions. For this reason, she has not been intimate with anyone in years. But surprise, surprise. Somehow Dev seems to be immune to her and can also "cleanse" certain objects so that they don't affect her.

Now, Stryker wants to use her ability to help his cause. Demons want her dead (pretty thin plot). And the Hellchasers have imprisoned her for her own good???
And why is that?

Okay, I realize that this is fiction but the Dark-Hunter books USED to atleast have a believable plot and finale. This thing was just crazy...and not in a good way.

**Possible spoiler**

Is Sherrilyn Kenyon really writing these books now or has a Ghost Writer taken over?
Since when do you have a Dark-Hunter book with ONE little 5 second scene with Simi?
What was so special about Dev that he was immune to her powers? Sam wasn't the mate the Fates had made for Dev until later in the story and it was only done then as some sort of punishment. The actual mating was only mentioned as an after thought. And what was the purpose of getting the Girdle? It was never mentioned again after it was retrieved! It didn't help her any during the fight scene when the Demons attacked. And FLYING FIRE BREATHING MONKEYS???? Give me a break!!! This series has definitely Jumped the Shark. I'm getting out NOW. I may peek back in if Simi ever gets her book. Other than that, good-bye Dark-Hunter series.

Okay, I loved all the first DH-books. I found them getting less good the more she wrote - exception of course Acheron - but still funny. Strykers and Fang's books had been dissapointments for me and so I was reluctant to continue reading the series.

So I'm pleasantly surprised with this book, finally SK concentrates again on what I love in her books - the funny and unexpected dialouges. Dev always has a repartee. All characters are joking and teasing each other ...it's fun and relaxing to read. The storyline itself had a few flaws - I get the feeling that SK gets lost in her own created worlds - but it really doesn't matter because I don't read this books because of it's connection to reality ;-)

Why not 5 stars? Because it annoys me when books have logical flaws and this is something that happens often in SKs books - in this one, too.

Example / Spoiler : Samia reads Dev thought and answers to it when she first meets him...and later isn't able to read his thoughts.
