Born of Night (The League #1) By: Sherrilyn Kenyon
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 father’s 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.
This was the first Sci-Fi Romance I ever read. That was years ago and I’ve read a few since then so I decided to go back to it and see if I still liked it.
Unlike a lot of the Sci-Fi Romance I’ve been reading there’s a lot more world building and character development. It’s not just fall into lust, bang, fall into love, overcome some meaningless obstacle. There’s a lot going on in this book and series.
I did notice this time around several plot holes and things that just didn’t make sense. She starts the book with an introduction saying that at one point the book was something different and that she went back and added stuff when she got the rights back so maybe that caused the issues. Not sure.
Overall I still really enjoyed the book, it’s fairly violent and crude for a romance but sometimes that’s what you need.
