In a world where the League and its assassins rule, where betrayal and treachery are everywhere . . . the only survivors are those ones who are . . .
BORN OF SHADOWS
For Caillen Dagan, a defiant soldier of fortune, survival isn't a right, it's a brutal daily battle. Moving through the Ichidaian universe like a wraith, his brushes with the law and death are legendary. But when an act of rare heroism reveals his hidden birthright, he's forced into a world much more dangerous and cold-hearted than the bloody streets where he was raised-one of obscene wealth and lethal politics.
Ferocious and determined, Desideria serves as an official bodyguard for her queen. Born of questionable genetics, she will do anything to prove herself worthy of the weapons she carries and the position she's won by combat. But when she uncovers a ruthless plot to assassinate the queen and overthrow her country's government, Desideria is caught in the crosshairs.
With assassination contracts out on both of them, Caillen and Desideria must learn to fight together or die alone. And if they fail, their governments will fall into the hands of an unimaginable evil.
Not like the other league books, this has way to much detail over little things and it goes on and on, kind of a waste compared to the other league books, I would not read this book twice.
Great Read -Couldn't Put It Down
This is the fourth book in the League series and it just might be my favorite. This is great sic-fi depicting a fantastic universe inhibited by some of the most interesting beings to be put to paper. There is a lot of action, political intrigue, and witty dialogue. The main theme of this book is family, those you are born into and those you make. The other theme is survival, what people have to do to survive and who you want at your back while trying. Although the hero Caillen feels all he has is bad luck he is the King of Survivors. When it looks like his luck as finally run out his life and fortunes are completely reversed. It is that reversal of fortunes and his survival skills that brings him into contact with Desideria a naive but fierce warrior princess whose position in the line of succession puts her in the Leagues crosshairs. There is not a lot of actual sex but a lot of funny commentary regarding it.
Characters from the previous books make welcome appearances.
I actually put this book down to go to bed but it wouldn't let me sleep so I got up and finished it.
Obviously I recommend this book as well as the other League books. Book four can be read stand-alone however your enjoyment is greatly enhanced if you at least read book three, Born of Fire.
Couldn't put it down
I love all of Sherrilyns' books. This one is up there among my favorites. I read it in 1 day. I just couldn't put it down. Loved it.
