I personally told him I wanted the army, so long as they were young, cute, male, and virile. I get pulled into it so far that hours feel like minutes. I know you guys'll probably recommend it but is it absolutely necessary to read? View all 4 comments. That was too rare a gift to take for granted. As with all Sherrilyn Kenyon books, both the hero and heroine have horrific pasts and wounded souls, I admit, sometimes I get a little exasperated with the ridiculously over the top melodrama that is ever present in her books.
I hope so. If he doesn't get killed off Just kidding. We are building in that direction. Keep your eyes on the next few books. You and Darling go way back. How did you first meet?
I really don't like talking about my childhood. The only good thing I can say is that I survived and that I met Darling during it. But for him, I'd probably be dead by now.
In fact, that The 1 New York Times bestselling series. In the Ichidian Universe, no one was safe. People were dragged from their homes and killed in the streets- victims of a ruthless tyrant who was bent on being the sole ruler of their entire cosmos. Those who opposed him and his army formed an alliance called The League. After they put down the tyrant Justicale Cruel, the League realized that the best way to keep trouble from starting was to After they put down the tyrant Justicale Cruel, the League realized that the best way to keep trouble from starting was to cut it off at its head.
A separate group of soldiers was needed, The League Assassins. Welcome to a world where corrupt assassination politics dominate everything and everyone. Most live in fear. We fight back. Don't get me wrong, Hauk hasn't had it easy by a long shot. Not with a psychotic older brother, mother that blames him for not dying after surviving a fire that left him badly scarred Andarion race likes their warriors to be the deadliest but no scars allowed!
His story hits you where it hurts y What's this? His story hits you where it hurts yet unlike his predecessors, Hauk doesn't leave you drained and depressed and with this book clocking in at nearly pages, I'm grateful. Sumi is sent after intel to use against Hauk as a way for Kyr, League commander, to get revenge against Hauk's untouchable royal comrades. Sumi watches video of Hauk in action and knows accepting the mission is akin to suicide but no isn't an option with a precious life on the line.
Hauk is snarly, merciless towards his enemies, fiercely loyal to his friends, and a total softy when it comes to kids. While on a coming of age camping trip with his niece and nephew, picture less camp fires and scary stories and more harsh conditions and a brutal climb up a dangerous mountain, Hauk finds Sumi and saves her life. Hauk immediately recognizes her as a League assassin, which surprises me that he buys into the false story she gives as to why she happens to be in the same area as him.
Kind of out of character for him and didn't feel quite right. The benefit of his acceptance is that it keeps the story moving and so begins their journey down a very bumpy road to happiness. Sumi and Hauk both have a hard exterior that's reinforced by repeated betrayal and heartbreak but underneath that are two beings that want love, acceptance, and crave a future neither think is possible. The 'I love you' comes quickly yet the pace doesn't feel forced and by the end I was convinced their feelings are genuine and heartfelt.
The romance is sweet and sad because neither are experienced with loving someone so much and working out their emotions and insecurities with them are some of my favorite moments. Someone put a bounty out on Hauk but that's nothing compared to the his family. His mother sees his scars as a disgrace and is close to banishing him from his highly respected warrior family because Dariana publicly shames and wounds him each year after he's unjustifiably saddled with guilt of his brother Keris' death.
Can you guess how they take the news he has fallen for a human after weeks before Dariana agrees to follow tradition and mate Hauk? Hauk's history and his screwed up version of a family made me respect him that much more simply because he survived it all.
Sumi has no fear when it comes to protecting Hauk and happily cheered her on each time she came to his defense. Fans of the series will be happy to know their favorites are back. How do I know who your favorites are? Because just about everyone who has played a role the ones that survived anyways is ready to lend Hauk support and fire power.
Loved it. Seeing all my favorites again and how far they have come since their own books was such a fan girl thrill There are times it borders the line of cheesy and a couple scenes can only be described as cheese-tastic.
Something that doesn't necessarily feel out of place in this book but looking at the series as a whole, it could have been toned down a bit without losing any of the sentiment. Nitpicking aside, I absolutely enjoyed this book and think it will be best received by fans of the series. Plans are set into motion with Sentella and the alien nations that are allying against the League that will likely result in a bloody battle royale.
I'm so ready for someone to lay a smack down on Kyr and his League. Oh and the fact that it's going to be Fain's book? Bring it.

If you are not up to date on this series you should be. Hawk is massive, sexy and scarred by his past, and beaten by his present. He is trapped in unhappiness and celibacy.

He is forbidden to find comfort so he uses his energy to protect his family and friends, and he is ferocious.
His life is threatened at the highest level when he runs into an assassin who is there to kill him. His assassin is a woman, an attractive woman who stirs something inside of him. She is there by force, and will do what she has to do because someone she loves will die if she doesn't. It also helps that there are serious emotional scars flowing in her veins against the family Hawk.
She is a survivor, a warrior, and a bit of a broken soul who will rip apart the life Hawk has built. Yeehaw, another fun ride with S. I had taken a break fro her writing for a year, but am thrilled to be back in the sexy hunky semi caveman program. There is a lot of alpha to absorb here as well as her other series I need to take them in small doses. I feel bruised and battered from all the wounds these characters received.
Great narration the reader brought the world alive Stronger Together.

Can they stay safe and outrun the ones out for his blood or will they stand and fight with one who is born of fury?
Read on and find out for yourself. I enjoyed reading this book. I borrowed this from the library and it's a pretty good read. I have been a fan of the League series since I first discovered Sherrilyn Kenyon's books back in and this series is one of my favorites of hers.
If you are into Space Pirates, aliens, action, adventure, and romance then this series is for you. I can't wait for the next installment of the series to come out so I can dive into their universe again. This one is one of my favorite books in the series now besides Born of Night. Jul 01, Kristen rated it it was ok. Oh the League. I used to love you. Arguably more than the Dark Hunters, which I also used to love and now mildly have warm feels towards, I guess.
It's complicated with both series now. I hoped this series wouldn't become really samey, like DH did, but alas. I wanted so much more for Hauk's book. Though I did like his and Sumi's relationship up until they left planet Arizona or whatever.
I am disappoint. Is it because this and the DH series were very nearly the first real para-romance I ever rea Oh the League. Is it because this and the DH series were very nearly the first real para-romance I ever read, and since I've branched out and found other stuff, I find I don't like Kenyon's writing as much as I did when I started both series?
I still get excited for her books though, because I always think it's going to be another Born of Fire or Night Play, and it never really is. Except Born of Silence. That one was pretty legit. But, here's the deal on why I two-starred this one: I mean really. I get it. You have babies. Your best friend has babies, like a million of them.
You're all one huge happy family, and all of your babies get along great and we all have play dates and oh my god I had no idea what love is until I met you and had a baby, your baby that's not really mine but it is because you say so. Oh and we're all ruthless space assassins and warriors and whatnot. For reals. Yeah, I went there. This one also felt kind of phoned in a bit, especially near the end. When they were all trying on clothes and having a pool party in between their bases getting blown up and having to literally sword fight someone to win your husband or whatever.
I hold out hope for Nero's book, because that could be amazing if done properly, but I will absolutely roll my eyes at the herd of siblings and children which must somehow be included in his story as well. But Fain's book is next, and here's a spoiler for you: Sorry to ruin it for you.
View all 4 comments. Feb 24, Tina rated it did not like it. I will not lie to you: I haven't read a Kenyon book in a long time. I was a very huge fan of the Dark-Hunter series, right up until Acheron, which started out as a phenomenal story and ended ad as wishy-washy cliche.
The couple of books I read in that series after were equally wishy-washy and nowhere near the caliber of story as the prior ones in the series. I found the League series and was really blown away by the first book. Nykyrian Quiakides is a totally believable yet utterly frightening ch I will not lie to you: Nykyrian Quiakides is a totally believable yet utterly frightening character, and discovering his humanity in the book was a treat.
The book about Syn was equally great, and there were a couple others I liked as well.
Shaharra's story, for one. So, when I saw this one at the library, I grabbed it. Boring, ladies.
Just boring. It seems that Sherri is just writing to write and does not have any originality left. The two main characters in the book were in love and unable to live without each other within DAYS of meeting each other. What the hell happened to the fearsome Hauk from the first books? In his stead we have a pussy. I said it. The guy who trusts nobody suddenly trusts this woman sent to kill him? I call bullshit. I am so disappointed in Kenyon's writing, I will probably not pick up another of her books again.
This book is so utterly boring and follows the same formula as the end of the Dark Hunter series, it kind of makes me sad. Wishy washy. So bad, in fact, that I have had to force my way through to the halfway point, and I am not even going to read the rest. What once was a great world of assassins and intrigue is now nothing more than a different vehicle for the by-the-book love stories her Dark Hunter books are now showing. View 1 comment. Jul 30, Marta Cox rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is without doubt my favourite sci fi series bar none.
Ms Kenyon is at the top of her game with an imagination and talent that few can emulate. Whilst this series is futuristic we are never bombarded with lots of technical details but just enough to enrich the world she has created Amazing world building and a storyline of good versus evil that never grows old.
Add in her trademark alpha males with romance in spades and yes I'm a very happy reader. This time it's Hauk the colossal Andarian wa This is without doubt my favourite sci fi series bar none. This time it's Hauk the colossal Andarian warrior who steps into the spotlight. He has a truly awful backstory and unfortunately it's a past that still impinges on his present. He agrees to take his nephew on a quest but has no idea that his greatest enemies are closing in on him.
When a mysterious injured female is discovered he realizes that she is an assassin but Sumi doesn't seem to want his life no her mission is far more nefarious than that! I really enjoyed this story and boy is it a long one.
Both Hauk and Sumi have survived things that would break others but they have come through strong and driven. Sumi is seeking her missing child whilst Hauk just wants to fulfil his duties. I loved honourable Hauk and although he has suffered so much he has so much to give. My heart ached for him but thankfully didn't break as sometimes this author pushes a little too far into darkness with her tortured heroes.
A lot of Hauks suffering is caused by his own mother and I wasn't happy with how that played out in this book if honest but there is a joyous ending and most things got neatly tied up. The war between the League and the Sentella continues with obviously more to come but for this reader it's Neros story that I really want.

This and all my other reviews are originally posted on my blog un Conventional Bookviews. Dancer and Sumi are amazing together the beginning gave me Katniss and Peeta type feels and that has not happened in a long time.
I really love the ending where they accept each others kids. This book is amazing and it deserves the 4 stars. Jun 24, Kerris rated it it was amazing. Jedine ceho lituju je, ze uz jsem to docetla.

I love these guys so much: I guess my book would be the Born of Impatience XD. May 24, The Window Seat rated it it was amazing. The release of the latest League book is done at the time of a special anniversary. The first League book was released 20 years ago! And I for one am very happy the Ms. Kenyon has the time and opportunity to get back to this awesome series and expand on these wonderful characters!

I loved every moment of this book. I believe this series gets better and better. The characters are fantastic. God bless the Sentela they are an awesome bunch of quircky peeps. I can't wait to see who the next book will be about!!!
May 28, Jen Davis rated it really liked it. Sherrilyn Kenyon is the queen of the tortured hero. I have to admit, I was a little worried where she would go next after the misery of Styxx, but I am happy to say she struck a much better balance this time around.
Hauk has spent almost all of his adult life betrothed to a woman who hates his guts. Every year, he must offer himself again… and every year she hatefully turns him away.
But she never completely releases him from his duty. So he remains bound to her, unable to even touch another woman, as she rejects him over and over again. This year, though, she promises to finally accept his suit, after he mentors her son on his Endurance, a grueling right of passage for Andarian youths.
Darice is a spoiled brat who knows only the vitriol his mother has spewed about Hauk for years. She bears him no ill will, but the League has her daughter, and if she ever wants a chance to get her child back, she must do as commanded.
Of course, when she gets to know Hauk, it gets harder and harder to consider betraying him. What helped balance this, though, was the connection he had to his friends in the Sentella. He has a support network. He has people who love him, but Sumi is really the first woman who has looked at him with desire. Remember, women are off-limits if he wants to maintain his honor and commitment to Deandra, so there is a great internal conflict he has going on about whether to allow himself a chance for that kind of connection.
It helped create a pretty good tension that made the eventual love scene hot and satisfying. I liked Sumi well enough, though at times she was almost too good to be true. She treated Hauk the way I wanted her to, though, and that went a long way to me getting on board with the romance.
It kept the story development from being too predictable and it kept the plot moving. I really enjoyed the romance, the HEA, and how much Kenyon incorporated other League characters and their backstories into the book. She did a great job, not only reminding us of who these characters are, but their histories and connections. There were times I felt she was a bit heavy-handed.
The big theme here is on creating a family of the heart. I liked the sentiment and how it fixed something broken in the heroine, but the theme was almost run into the ground.
I was also turned off by some of the repetitive language. She uses it ad nauseam. But if you can get past those little annoyances, I thought it was good. Sometimes a little trite, but enjoyable. Be prepared for a long read: But I think it will be a hit with fans of the series. Dancer Hauk is one of the founding members of the Sentella and one of the most fearsome fighters in the universe.
However, back home he is considered deformed because of his scars and unworthy by his family. However, as the last adult male in his bloodline Hauk must take his nephew on his Endeavor, a hard core camping trip, but, Hauk is one of the most wanted men in the universe and a very powerful man wants him dead. Sumi Antaxas was conscripted to the League after killing her boyfriend in sel Dancer Hauk is one of the founding members of the Sentella and one of the most fearsome fighters in the universe.
Sumi Antaxas was conscripted to the League after killing her boyfriend in self defense, she has now become one of their top assassins, and there is one thing she would kill, destroy and maim for, her child. Taken away as soon as she was born Sumi will do anything to give her a safe life, including take out the more ferocious male she has ever seen…Dancer Hauk.
Want me to like a book? Stick in an alien hero over six and half foot tall with fangs and I am blissed out. As with all Sherrilyn Kenyon books, both the hero and heroine have horrific pasts and wounded souls, I admit, sometimes I get a little exasperated with the ridiculously over the top melodrama that is ever present in her books.
But then I read about my sexy Space Vampire and get over it, however, I look forward to the day when maybe one of her characters will be well adjusted and their body untouched by torture. There was also plenty of action in this book, Hauk was on some kind of extreme-camping-coming-of-age gig with his young nephew and was also being chased by a horde of assassins and mercs.
This made the book exciting and full of danger as well as romance and is also one of the reasons that is now one of my favourite books in the series. It was also touching to see just how close all the characters were and see them all come together and show their depth of their friendships with one another, they really were one big happy family.
Another fantastic book in this series and I cannot wait to see what happens next and whose book will be next. View all 3 comments.

So many times a character in a series who I take an extra special liking to becomes a disappointment when they eventually are featured in their own installment. Such was my worry abo There's a reason I'll travel hours and hours to stand in line to meet Sherrilyn Kenyon in person or purchase one of her books without even looking at the content blurb or price. Such was my worry about Hauk. He was big. He was bad. He was kick ass scary and I loved him as a fantasy fictional boyfriend.
There couldn't be a fictional female who would ever be good enough for my man so this book would be probably be just another case of let down when some bimbo latched onto Hauk. Surprise, surprise. Not only was this over the top satisfying and delicious. It was more. Reaffirms my belief that Ms.
Kenyon can make a silk purse out of anything she touches. The book blurb is enough to give any potential reader the basics. What I will say is that this isn't a standalone. Characters from previous installments are featured in more than a cameo fashion so knowing their back stories is important to appreciate this current one. Does it seem like I'm gushing? If not I haven't been clear enough then. I loved this book and can't wait for whatever book in whatever series that is next to be released by Sherri.

So disappointed, I liked Hauk in the other books, and as a supporting character he was great, actually all of her characters are great until you get into their head and find out that they are all the same people. Please write a new character. Of the ones I have found The League is my favorite. I love Hauk and Sumi's story. I've been hoping Hauk would get his own book since his first appearance. Secondary character Thia is pretty bad ass.
I hope she gets her own book. Like the books before it, Born of Fury is sexy, heartwarming and dangerous. An excellent read. I highly recommend this series. The League is quite an intricate world with amazing characters. If you're wanting to check this series out, definitely start at the beginning with with Born of Night. Born of Fury is narrated by actor, Fred Berman.
He does an excellent job bringing all the members of the Sentella to life. Each one unique.
