By Jen (Red Hot Books) TOP 500 REVIEWER on 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.

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.

Kenyon writes really good tortured characters. If you like a little (a lot) of angst in your protagonists, she's your girl. I really liked this series, in the beginning, but after this last book...Well I think this might be the last Kenyon book I read. The dialogue between the two main characters could be replaced with any of the dialogue between the characters in the earlier novels. Also, and I know Kenyon has taken some flak for this from other reviewers, but do all of her characters need to have suffered horrific trauma? And does the dialogue between the characters need to be this slightly comedic one upmanship of who has suffered more? And of all these characters who have suffered from this hideous abuse, do they all need to fall quite effortlessly into love and trust with near perfect strangers. Or sometimes the very people bent on creating more misery in their lives?

It's not that I want these characters to not have happy endings, because they certainly deserve them, I guess it just seems that their stories, especially when you consider what has happened to them, are fairly quickly resolved.

This one just felt like an excuse to get some other characters (and by others, I mean pretty much every major character from this universe) literally into the same room. Half of this book is banter between all the characters, rehashing of references to previous events and past histories, like a giant family reunion.

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!
