No Mercy (Dark-Hunter) by Sherrilyn Kenyon
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. (From Goodreads.)
This is the 19th book of the Dark-Hunter series. I started reading them in order, but there are so many that I just started grabbing whatever was available so I have read many out of order. Events are inter-connected and I have missed some things, but they are written so that you know all that you really need to know to understand the story.
I enjoyed No Mercy just as much as the others in the series. I love Dev, the bear shapeshifter, and his sarcastic sense of humor. Some of his lines had me laughing out loud. Sam, the tough Amazon Dark-Hunter is a good match for him.
As always, Kenyon doesn't make it easy for the main characters, but they inevitably find their Happily Ever After. I think that's what I like so much about the series.
My Rating: ****
