Publisher Comments:

In the Ichidian Universe where The League is law, most live in fear. We fight back. Welcome to a world where corrupt assassination politics dominate everyone. Its kill or be killed in, Born of Night, the first book in the #1 New York Times bestselling League series by Sherrilyn Kenyon.

Command Assassin Nykyrian Quikiades once turned his back on the League—and has been hunted by them ever since. Though many have tried, none can kill him or stop him from completing his current mission: to protect Kiara Zamir, a woman whose fathers political alliance has made her a target. As her world becomes even deadlier, Kiara must entrust her life to the same kind of beast who once killed her mother and left her for dead. Old enemies and new threaten them both and the only way they can survive is to overcome their suspicions and learn to trust in the very ones who threaten them the most: each other.

Review:

"Best-selling author Sherrilyn Kenyon (The Dark-Hunter novels) restores three out-of-print titles in the series the League Novels, creating a more pronounced interconnected universe between the books. The first in the trilogy offers new readers an introduction to her Ichidian Universe, while restoring parts from the original manuscript and other rewritten material for the more familiar fan. Princess Kiara Zamir in repulsed by those who perpetuate violence like the brutal attacks on her family. Nykyrian Quiakides, a hybrid human and Andarion (a predatory alien race), is a former assassin for The League, who now leads a group of vigilantes known as The Sentella. Ironically, Nykyrian's team finds themselves serving as protectors of Kiara against kidnappers and assassins, giving Kiara and Nykyrian, two broken individuals, a chance at romance-if they can survive. The story is fast-paced, with graphic violence and sex in almost equal amounts. Kenyon thrives when developing the relationship between the two protagonists, putting the focus on relationships rather than world-building, which may disappoint some readers." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

First published in 1996, Kenyon's League series has been out of print for years--and fans have been clamoring its return. Now, the first book in her classic series has been completely re-written and is even bigger and better than before. Original.

Synopsis:

In the Ichidian Universe, The League and their ruthless assassins rule all. Expertly trained and highly valued, the League Assassins are the backbone of the government. But not even the League is immune to corruption . . .

Command Assassin Nykyrian Quikiades once turned his back on the League—and has been hunted by them ever since. Though many have tried, none can kill him or stop him from completing his current mission: to protect Kiara Zamir, a woman whose fathers political alliance has made her a target.  

As her world becomes even deadlier, Kiara must entrust her life to the same kind of beast who once killed her mother and left her for dead. Old enemies and new threaten them both and the only way they can survive is to overcome their suspicions and learn to trust in the very ones who threaten them the most: each other.

About the Author

#1 New York Times bestselling author, Sherrilyn Kenyon lives a life of extraordinary danger... as does any woman with three sons, a husband, a menagerie of pets and a collection of swords that all of the above have a major fixation with. But when not running interference (or dashing off to the emergency room), she’s found chained to her computer where she likes to play with all her imaginary friends. With over nineteen million copies of her books in print, in over thirty countries, she certainly has a lot of friends to play with too.

Kenyon is an international phenomenon and the leading pioneer of the current paranormal craze (her first paranormal novel was published in 1994--obviously when she was just a small child). She's the author of several series including: The Dark-Hunters, The League, Brotherhood of the Sword, Lords of Avalon and the forthcoming Nevermore and Chronicles of Nick. Her Lords of Avalon novels have been adapted by Marvel and her Dark-Hunter novels are now manga published by St. Martins and packaged by the talented Dabel Brothers.

From the first page of the book, the entire story became complicated and beautifully interwoven between characters that I couldn't help but be sucked in and become addicted to the novel. In fact, I have read each book in this series and have thoroughly enjoyed each one since the characters are found in each. For me, the idea of having such a dark and deep 'other' male character who denies himself everything is a spectacular start. Then bring in a seemingly plain and human woman to bring him to 'life' and the story just becomes juicy and completely interesting! This book is filled with obstacles for our two main characters in their hot and heavy romance as well as in their survival! Read and find out why this book is one of my favorites! =)
