"You are missing out on something special if you haven\'t read The League!"

Syn was raised as a tech-thief which led to him uncovering a truth that put his life in danger. Destroying the evidence would have been a good solution but instead it has stayed hidden and Syn has been on the run ever since. Now older and wiser he is an assassin who doesn't let anyone threaten him.

Shahara Dagan is a bounty hunter and most likely one of the best in the universe. Syn is just another job, a way to make money to keep her siblings alive. Unfortunately there is a problem. It seems Syn is a close friend of her brother and sister. He is a friend who has helped out them out on many occasions. On one side she wants to bring the assassin in and have him pay for his crimes but on the other hand she knows she will be upsetting a lot of people close to her.

So Shahara saves him and then both of their lives are on the line. The only hope Shahara and Syn have is to find the evidence he buried long ago. Running for their lives they both stick close together and try and save each other from being hunted down and killed.

This second book in The League series surprised me as much as Born of Night. After reading the first book I really thought it was a fluke. I don't usually read Sci-Fi type fantasy so this was just a one off? Now I believe it all lies in the wonderful way Sherrilyn Kenyon writes.

Born of Fire was as brilliant a story as Born of Night. Great characters, good plot and nice twists that kept things exciting. Adventure with just the right amount of romance this story was both heartbreaking and heartwarming. I loved it all.

Now I am looking forward to curling up with the third book, Born of Ice. Sherrilyn's Dark-Hunter series is certainly my favourite series by this amazing author but The League is better than the Dream-Hunters. Don't forget to check this series out if you are a Kenyon fan. You are missing out on something special if you haven't read The League!

A League Novel

In a universe where assassins make the law, everyone lives in fear—except for Syn. Born of an illicit scandal that once rocked a dynasty, he always knew how to survive on the bloodthirsty streets. But that was then, and the future is now…

Syn was raised as a tech-thief until his livelihood uncovered a truth that could end his life. He tried to destroy the evidence, and has been on the run ever since. Now trained as an assassin, he allows no one to threaten him. Ever. He is the darkness that swallows his enemies whole.

Shahara Dagan is the best bounty hunter in the universe. When Syn comes back on the radar, she’s the only one who can bring him to justice. There’s only one problem: Syn is a close family friend who’s helped out the Dagans countless times. But if she saves him, both of their lives will be on the line. Is Syn’s protection worth the risk? The only hope Shahara has is to find the evidence he buried long ago. Now it’s kill or be killed—and they, the predators, have just become the hunted…
