Overview

One of the fiercest soldiers the Phrixians have ever produced, Maris Sulle has been an outsider from the moment he was born different from the rest of his family. He grew up with a secret that cost him everything——his birthright, his family, and his military career. In all his life, he’s only had one love, and he has sacrificed his own happiness to see his best friend reunited with the woman he loves. But now that his good deed is done, he feels lost and adrift. Even though they do their best to include him in their new family, Maris is once again on the outside looking in.

Ture has spent his life hiding from everyone around him——his family, the world, you name it——while trying desperately to fit in. Badly hurt by everyone he’s ever known, he trusts no one except his own best friend. And honestly, he can’t understand why he trusts her. Nor can he believe her when she describes a loyalty between friends the likes of which he’s never seen.

But when Ture is in his darkest hour, he’s saved by a hero he thought only existed in novels. A man who is every bit as scarred and mistrusting as he is——one who has no interest in being dragged into another relationship with anyone.

Having spent his life as a living study of doomed relationships, Maris is well aware of the courtship and fiasco that invariably follows. Still, there is something about Ture he can’t resist. Something that won’t let him walk away when he knows he should.

But when old enemies return to threaten them both, they either have to stand together or die alone.

    I am so disappointed in this book. I really love The League ser

    I am so disappointed in this book.
    I really love The League series, I feel that this is Kenyon's most innovative and creative story line, not a lot of repeated stereotypical
    romance formula present. That being said, I'm so so sad that this book ended up being so predictable..and not even in a good way!
    Maris and Ture feel like flat characters in this book, while in the last book both seemed animated. Their relationship is boring.
    The romance scenes are boring. The fight scenes are boring. The torture scenes are boring! 

    This book would've been much better if the characters and storyline had been longer and fleshed out.
    Kenyon's team has posted on Facebook that there was no more material to add, hence the ebook only publication at this point.
    I'm so disappointed that she didn't pull a page out of Acheron's book and go back in time to tell more of Maris' story, or even Ture's.
    She could've expanded on a Phrixian storyline, or, as you're nauseatingly told over and over, both of Maris and Ture have been hurt,
    why didn't an old flame come between them? Or a crazy abusive one try to break back in so Maris could show his warrior side? 

    Or, for crying out loud, why didn't the book include more of the war that they just started in the last novel?!

    But nope. They just think over and over "I've been too hurt...this can never last".
    I'm pretty surprised that neither of them fainted after this. There were many places this storyline could've gone and didn't.
    I think that it would have been better to publish this as a side story in another novel, or in an anthology. It almost has no place within
    The League storyline and it feels awkward in my head to include the minuscule amount of information presented here, that progressed
    the overall storyline of the series along...by this -- much. 


    The ebook is $3.14 from B&N. I'm glad I didn't pay anymore for it, and it is fitting that the worst book I've read by Kenyon was the cheapest.
    I guess it was worth reading if your other option is watching reruns of MASH or staring at a wall. 

    Also, piss poor job done when it comes to trying to promote equality for GLBT communities. The author's note was straight up "don't judge
    me, I'd never do anything like what my characters are doing...not that it's wrong...just not for me". Yep. Uh-huh. Way to hedge your bets and
    try to appeal to both sides while staying in line with heteronormativity. There were two sex scenes, one of them interrupted and short, and
    they were awkward and unrealistic. If you read or wanted to read this novel for the GLBT romance line, I'm sorry it sucks and don't bother.
    Try reading J.R. Ward's Lover at Last book within the Black Dagger Brotherhood series instead.

    ~Reviewed by SUZANNE & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog

    Maris Sulle has spent most his life devoted to the one man he loves but can never have, the happily married Darling Cruel the only person who has ever loved him for exactly who he was. But, when on a mission he rescues the jaded Ture and feels a connection he can’t seem to deny. But they both must overcome their past and insecurities especially when danger seems to be following them.

    I feel like I have been waiting for this book forever; it is the book in the The League series that I have been anticipating the most, I just wanted Maris to have his HEA after all the horrible events he has endured. This book overlaps with Born of Silence at the point where Darling, Maris and the gang rescue Zarya from the League. But instead of seeing it from Darling and Zarya’s POV we see Ture and Maris instead and the connection between them is almost instant.

    I don’t normally read M/M books, for some reason they have never appealed to me, but Cloak & Silence,for me, was less about being an M/M book and more about me wanting two characters I love to have a happy ending. Like with all Sherrilyn Kenyon books though, the road to true love is paved with torture, persecution and betrayal, and although some of the melodrama does have my eyes rolling, mostly my eyes were glued to my kindle screen desperate to see what would happen next.

    I really enjoyed this book, it was worth the wait, the romance essentially was rather sweet as the both look past each others scars, internal and external, and fall in love, with some hot ‘n steamy scenes to keep us drooling. The League is definitely one of my favourite series, full of romance, action and heartbreak and I can’t wait to read more.

    Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olso

    Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson:

    Cloak & Silence was an incredible follow-up to Born of Silence and well worth the wait in its release in my honest opinion. 

    Action packed, tender, a pivotal turning point for several of our key players in the League-verse and just a great story, Cloak & Silence
    was another Kenyon home run and a must read for all League fans! 

    It should be noted that this novella can't be fully enjoyed if you haven't read the previous installments of the LEAGUE series, especially
    Born of Silence, book #5, as it picks up immediately following the pivotal events at the end of BoS and then continues forward. 

    It was incredible to get the full story of Maris' tragic past and be able to finally understand him even better. Getting this back-story, as
    well as some snippets into the back-story of some of our other leading characters, made the storyline more emotionally gripping, Maris'
     HEA an even greater reward, and was a great segue to future installments of the series.

    I am chomping at the bit for Hauk's book, Born Of Fury,in November now that I finally got re-immersed in the LEAGUE!

    Same old thing

    Kenyon's writing is very predictable. If this is one of the first books of hers you read, you'll probably enjoy it, but after reading nearly all her books the "wounded hero with a troubled past and a heart of gold finds true love" theme is getting kind of boring!

    Maris is one of my favorite characters and one of the deserving to get their own story. He is just that lovable and badass.

    Under The Cloak of Darkness

    Welcome to under the cloak of daekness training camp. We are designed to train cats to become evil and join an evil clan like Ethereal or HellClan with great experience. With our training, you will be unstoppable! <p>

    Our main instructor is Kali. She has much experience and will be a great trainer. When you enter UCDTC, you will be given an assesment. This will determine your starting rank. I also will have instructors and assistant instructors, who's rank can only be achived by a very high score on you assesment, or very hard work. <p>

    This is similar to a clan, but not quite. You may have mates and kits, and there are spaces for dens and such. You may only have kits if they will not get in the way of your training.<p>


    <p>


    Ranks:<p>

    Tyran: The lowest rank, and the starting rank for kits born into UCDTC. You will be heavily monitored by Kali and her Intructors. You will learn the basics, like fighting stance and hunting tactics.<p>


    Arche: Rank # 2. This is only slightly higher then Tyran. This is a little below apprentace rank in a real clan. You will learn basic fighting tactics and basic stealth tactics.<p>


    Dynamos: Rank # 3. This is a bit higher than apprentace rank. You will learn harder fightong and stealth tactics.<p>


    Kratos: This is equivilent to Warrior. You will learn how use fast, but accurate moves and you will have the choice to be part of the training army (the army that is being trained is to distribute out to other clans. This is more hard core training than your regular every day classes.)<p>


    Ponerous: This is a big step from the last rank. This will be the hardest rank to achive. You will be high up into the army being trained.<p>


    Olethros: This is the highest rank. You will be Kali's closest advsior other than instuctors. You will be the first to go on to other clans. This rank cannot be tested ib the assesment.<p>


    Instructors and co-instructors: you must be atleast a Kratos to apply. You will train any rank lowrr than you appon Kali's request.<p>


    NO ASKING FOR RANK UPGRADES! WHEN KALI THINKS YOU ARE READY, KALI WILL GIVE YOU A TEST!

    Great book! Must read!

    It is fantastic to get to hear Maris' story, to be able to see his life and point of view. I love that it really is a non-traditional but beautiful love story, and we get to see the facets of his life experience, what makes him who he is and why. Beautifully written and shared! Thanks!!
