No Mercy

(Samia & Dev)

In the heart and in the soul,
evil takes its wicked toll.
When moonlight shines
like flowing blood,
over the earth,
the Daimons will flood.

        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 - on 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.

  • (everything before Chapter 5)
  • Amazons don't back down.  Sometimes you might want to.  Sometimes you ought to.  But Amazons never backed down.  (Samia, No Mercy)

Here you'll find all the juicy tidbits you learned from Sherrilyn Kenyon's No Mercy, this includes important dates, details, and character interactions.  My hope is that these pages and the subsequent ones from other novels and short stories will paint a clear and detailed "family history" and timeline of the Dark-Hunter world!  If you have additional details to add or corrections you noted feel free to email us and we'll add/fix them!  Enjoy!
