Book Description

The war is on . . .



Counted among the fiercest Andarion warriors ever born, Hauk is one of the five founding members of the Sentella - an organization that has declared war on the League that rules the Ichidian universe with an iron fist and terrifies it with an army of well-trained assassins. But Hauk fears nothing and no one. He will do whatever it takes to survive and protect his Sentella brethren.



Sumi Antaxas is one of the best assassins the League has ever trained. In her world, failure is not an option and she has never met a target she couldn't execute. So when she's assigned Hauk, she believes it'll be a quick and easy mission.



But nothing is ever as simple as it seems, and Hauk is far better trained and skilled than she imagined. In the race to report information that could bring the Sentella down, she suddenly becomes the hunted. Now her only key to survival is the one man she's been sent to kill. And Hauk doesn't trust her at all . . .

[A] publishing phenomenon . . . [Sherrilyn Kenyon is] the reigning queen of the wildly successful paranormal scene . . . Just one example of arguably the most in-demand and prolific authors in America these days. (Publishers Weekly)

Kenyon's writing is brisk, ironic and relentless imaginative. These are not your mother's vampire novels. (Boston Globe)

[An] engaging read. (Entertainment Weekly)

4.0 out of 5 stars Tortured, but not TOO tortured July 1, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
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. This is Hauk’s story and we finally get to go beyond his hulking tough-as-nails exterior, to the warm and gooey center underneath.

Hauk was a really good tortured hero, and unlike some of Kenyon’s characters, he wasn’t SO tortured that I wanted to stop reading. He wasn’t sexually abused, thankfully, but he’s been through a lot, both physically and emotionally. 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. But because of other commitments in his life, 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. Kenyon really could have dragged out the deception of Sumi’s mission and I was glad that she didn’t. It kept the story development from being too predictable and it kept the plot moving. That’s no small task considering the sizeable length of the book. 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fury with a Touch of Mildness July 6, 2014
Format:Hardcover
Perhaps I've gotten more demanding as I've grown older, but my fan affair with Ms. Kenyon diminished after the growing silliness of the Dark Hunters and the constant and repetitious ugliness of STYXX so that I now only read her League series. I have admired the stories and loved the heros of this series since its inception, and although BORN OF FURY is not as full of fury as the earlier books, Hauk is still a vibrant and tortured alpha male. In the negative, however, Ms. Kenyon has somehow lost the ability to write 'tight' and has begun to prove that practice does not make perfect. Neither of these factors are good things.

Seven hundred pages does make for a long read, especially when one tends to finish a book in a single sitting. That many pages recalls an old college saying that 'the mind can absorb only what the ass can endure.' One of the reasons for the length is thall her main character families are large and their many disfunctions requre explanation.. Another is the growth of the extended League family since the first book..All these unrelated but chosen family members makes a great blending as well as a beautiful social commentary, but with all the characters from all the books appearing in each successive book offering, one wonders when she'll again hit 1,600 pages of character confusion. Unless she does a better self-editing job in the future, she'll lose me as a reader to her own unwieldiness.

Nevertheless, I'll look forward to the next book and the next hero in this series, although with less zeal than curiosity.

REVIEW:
Oh my goodness I loved this book so much! This series just keeps getting better and better! I've have always loved Hauk and couldn't wait for this book! He ends up with the perfect woman for him. She kicks butt and protects her male. Loved Sumi! Their story is full of action, danger, emotion and romance. Sherrilyn Kenyon puts so much into her stories that the reader experiences the world of The League Series and you take the journey with her characters. The reader experiences such a full range of emotions. I've received some comments from other readers about being reluctant to try the series because of the space setting and I wanted to let everyone know that if you love Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark-Hunter Series you will love The League Series too. It's not really about the setting for me. It's about Kenyon's dynamic characters and their stories. They're just incredible and there is not another author like Kenyon. I love them all!

Sigh. Did I read the same book other people giving it 5 stars, I LURV It! reviews did?

I have adored this series since its inception and will stand behind my belief that Darling's story was one of the best I've read because of the amazing characterization as well as plot. But, Born of Fury didn't meet my expectations.

It wasn't *bad* by any means, but where was the plot? I realize the whole rising and falling line, 'classic' plot can become rote with readers going "okay, so this is where this is going to happen" and then "Yep, that is where that happened" to the point where stories that follow that line feel stale sometimes, but I would rather have had that slightly stale trope than have a story with the barest whisper of a plot, which is what Born of Fury delivered.

I did enjoy the characters but there was barely any tension at all to drive me to want to read faster and more (which, for me, is the mark of a good story). Instead the plot was cursory, almost there solely to bring the characters together and then forgotten, or glossed over, for the majority of the story. I found myself thinking, several times, 'so this is where the BIG twist is that takes this from a mediocre, 'characters thrown together in isolation' story to one that will grab me and drag me along behind it' (the author *has* delivered that before - I wasn't out on a limb hoping for this). Unfortunately that never happened.

And there were a lot of Mary Sue moments where the simplest darned solution to a problem were offered - the heroine is arrested?
