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…
Born of Fire is the second book in bestselling author Sherrilyn Kenyon's League series.
Distilling the essence of romance down into one book is an almost impossible feat, yet Kenyon manages it in the captivating sixth entry of her "Born of " series. Sumi Antaxas, a human woman, is a very reluctant assassin compelled into service by threats to her daughter. Her latest assignment is to gather intelligence on Dancer Hauk, of the Andarion Warring Blood Clan of Hauk. When she's trapped on a distant planet with Dancer, she finds herself torn between the daughter she's never seen and the tender, powerful warrior who will do anything for those he loves. Combining the best elements of science fiction, fantasy, and romance, the story focuses heavily on the definition of "family" and what it means to belong. Exquisiteworld building and vivid details complement the action-filled sequences just as well as the intimate, sensual moments.
Perfect! Syn & Shay💕
The whole ride, I was thinking this book was more realistic than any other romance novel I've read. And no, I don't mean the space shuttles and such, but their relationship. They never said things that sounded generic or out of character. It felt "natural." And their feelings and struggles reached out to me as they both worked out their own set of personal problems. Plus, the plot had so many twists and turns, I was having doubts that they would end up together—as if hah. That's what stood out to me the most. Excellent book! Thank you Sherrilyn!💕
Born in fire
I've read all the dark-hunter novels & I loved them all but this series is really great! Can't wait to read the next one! Hope she continues this series too... If you haven't read her books noes a good time to start.. Start at the beginning in all of her series, you won't regret it or be able to put them down.
Born of Ice
This is a great ending to her Born Trilogy. A must read!
