From Publishers Weekly
Best-selling author Sherrilyn Kenyon (The Dark-Hunter novels) restores three out-of-print titles in the series the League Novels, creating a more pronounced interconnected universe between the books. The first in the trilogy offers new readers an introduction to her Ichidian Universe, while restoring parts from the original manuscript and other rewritten material for the more familiar fan. Princess Kiara Zamir in repulsed by those who perpetuate violence like the brutal attacks on her family. Nykyrian Quiakides, a hybrid human and Andarion (a predatory alien race), is a former assassin for The League, who now leads a group of vigilantes known as The Sentella. Ironically, Nykyrian's team finds themselves serving as protectors of Kiara against kidnappers and assassins, giving Kiara and Nykyrian, two broken individuals, a chance at romance-if they can survive. The story is fast-paced, with graphic violence and sex in almost equal amounts. Kenyon thrives when developing the relationship between the two protagonists, putting the focus on relationships rather than world-building, which may disappoint some readers.

Nyk is a master assassin with a nightmarish past. The atrocious descriptions of abuse he suffered before he was taken to be trained by the league and after were hard to read. He is a hybrid, part human and part another race, and he is despised by both. He trusts no one and doesn't let anyone get close to him. He kills without mercy but has a soft spot for kids.
Kiara is a princes and a famous dancer. She is the doughter of a general and has a horrible past too. Her mother and she were kidnapped by assassins when Kiara was a little girl and they made her watch as they tortured and killed her mother, then shot her and left her for dead.
Kiara's life is threatened again when a government that wants to put pressure on her father hires assassins to kills her. Her father hires Nyk and his crew to protect her. Nyk is attracted to her but is afraid to let her get close to him and doesn't dare touch her. He was raised thinking he was worthless. He saves her life many times and she tries to get close to him but he pushes her away.
A sad but well written and engaging story.
