This book allows insight into a world that is dangerous, deadly and scintillating. As many Sherrilyn Kenyon fans know it is a continuation of Born of Night and explains why Syn also known as Sheridan has disappeared in the way that he did. There are many major themes that show up in this book and some more explanations as to why this world has turned out the way it did and why Syn himself has done so. I hope you enjoy the read!

With the deaths of their parents, as the oldest Sharara "Shay" Dagan takes responsibility for her two younger sisters and brother. She has fed them and put roof over their heads by being a free-tracer bounty hunter. However, with bills still to pay and her sibling Tessa hospitalized, she needs to make money fast or the government will refuse medical treatment. She accepts a contact to bring in accused rapist killer C.I. Syn, a friend of her sister Caillen. They know each other and he has been kind to her family, but a job brings in needed cash. Shay pursues Syn as only she can. He is on the lam struggling with the betrayal by his wife and his son and knows his pursuer is a legend in bringing in criminals. However, when Shay catches up to Syn, she fears her attraction to him may be coloring her belief he is innocent; but she prays she is right because she is taking a chance that could harm her sister. The second Ichidian Universe League futuristic fantasy romance (see Born of Night) focuses on two people who know each other, but his past has made him a semi-loner as expected of an assassin while she remains responsible for her siblings. Fans will enjoy this rewriting of an e-book as this is the ultimate cat and mouse gender war between a take no prisoners tracer and an assassin felon as only Sherrilyn Kenyon can describe.

Let me start out by saying if you read "Born of Night" and "Born of Fire" back to back, please be sure to read the author's note at the beginning of these books. Especially "Born of Fire". If not, you might end up being a tad bit annoyed. I read the note and so I went in prepared for the deviations. I have never felt as connected to a character as I did Shahara who is our heroine in this book. Growing up poor, I know what its like to look at something you want so badly but you can't afford it. I also know what its like to have to be the responsible one and not want to show weakness. I sadly don't have the closeness she did with her siblings but ever emotion Shahara felt throughout this story I felt right along with her deeper than I ever had a character before. I hurt for Syn and his story. He may have actually become one of my most favorite heroes that Kenyon's ever written. I love Acheron, Vane, Zarek, Fang and tons of the others but I think Syn will always have a special place in my heart. I don't know why, as I said before, I'm not a big SciFi fan but this one is definitely on my favorites list. Even as I hurried to see how the book ended, at the same time, I was sad when I did reach that conclusion. I wanted more. The true sign of a good story. I didn't go into this series thinking I'd be dying for the next installment as I had her other books but I find myself pleasantly surprised. Next time I see Sherrilyn Kenyon, likely during Dragon*con, I will be taking Born of Fire because this is a book I definitely want signed. Five Stars. Not to sound cliche but I laughed and cried and all at the right moments. There were even times I held my breath. This is a book worthy of your shelf.

~Reviewed by SUZANNE & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog Syn is on the run. So what else is new? Only this time the person chasing him is his best friends older sister and a part of him, the part south of his brain, kind of wants to be caught. But as much as Syn wants Shahara, can he trust her? A life time spent being betrayed and hurt by the ones who should love him has made Syn wary and Shahara has an agenda of her own.  We first meet Syn in Born of Night and I am so glad we didn’t have to wait long for him to get a book of his own. Syn has ‘hero material’ stamped all over him; he has a horrific past full of torture, pain and injustice and yet he is still essentially a good person, a good person with some mad seduction skills and the body of a god. Obviously I loved him.  Shahara, our feisty heroine I also really liked. She was strong and compassionate, and also came fully equipped with a horrible past of her own. This gave both Syn and Shahara issues that they both had to deal with before they could move on and conceive of being happy. But, I really loved seeing them both together Kenyon really got their chemistry spot on, the witty banter and sexual tension between them leaves you racing to read the next page. Kenyon also throws in some action, both in and outside the bedroom, laughter, not to mention a few tears, which all came together to make a fantastic read.  The League is definitely one of my favourite series, the world continues to grow and develop with each book. It also demonstrates that romance set in a Sci-Fi world need not be cheesy, but instead can produce an interesting and different platform from which a romance can launch.
