Book Critique - Without Mercy

Stars: 3 / 5

Recommendation: A travel down the minds of evil geniuses causing murders and mayhem certainly is no cake walk, and you will like the bone-chilling scenes page after page in this deadly novel that has no mercy.

Without Mercy is a stand-alone novel by Lisa Jackson first published in April of 2010. The plot revolves around two step-siblings who are accidentally thrown into a situation that makes them to try everything in the book to survive and live.

Shaylee "Shay" Stillman is sent to Blue Rock Academy in Southern Oregon, a school to discipline troubled youth. Knowing that this was the last resort for Shay to mend her ways before she turns an adult, it still made Jules Farentino, her step-sister, apprehensive and cautious. And she takes up a teaching position at the academy. But little does she nor Shay know that their fate had been decided by someone without mercy. The only way they can escape is by outsmarting him so they will not end up like others.

A little different from her To Die or New Orleans Series, she centers this plot around the psychology of a human mind in their teen years, and how they evolve to become more evil or good depending on how their brains are wired.
