"another great reading experience"
The League is full of ruthless assassins. Expertly trained
and highly valued they rule the Ichidian Universe. Command
Assassin Nykyrian Quikiades left the League and has been
hunted by them ever since. Many have tried to kill him but
nobody has been able to stop him.
Now Nykyrian works as an assassin for hire. His current
mission is to protect Kiara Zamir, who has become a target
because of her well known father. Kiara's life has become
more dangerous than ever before and she has to learn to
trust the same kind of man who killed her mother and left
her for dead all those years ago. However the only way both
of them can survive is to look after each other. If they
don't they will both end up dead.
I am a huge fan of Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark-Hunter series so
I was really happy to be offered her new series to review.
The League isn't actually that new and as the author points
out at the beginning, this series is really the first thing
she produced and is just now getting released for all to
read. But is it worth it?
The beginning of this book caught me straight off but then
quickly lost me again when I realised this was more Sci-fi
than paranormal. However there was the usual Kenyon taste
to the story so I kept up for a few more chapters. I have
to admit that at one point I was ready to give up but
instead I decided to take a break. After all, this is one
of the authors who got me into the Paranormal genre in the
first place and I needed to give her the benefit of the
So I went back to this book today and after a few more
chapters of still figuring out who was who and why, I
really got into it. By the time I got to the last hundred
pages I was very glad that I have the next two books in the
series already here waiting for me. Sure this isn't the
Dark-Hunters and it is no where as good as Sherrilyn's
famous series but it does has something.
With the strong characters, romance and action this is a
suspense filled read till the end. Sure the first half of
the book seemed a little confusing but once you get into
the new world and adjust, things get a lot better, fast.
Definitely worth reading if you are a Kenyon fan and
certainly check this out if you like a little Sci-fi but
nothing too deep.
I am looking forward to reading the next two books Born of
Fire and Born of Ice. Thanks for another great reading
