Publisher's Summary

Born an Outcast, Talyn Batur has spent the whole of his life fighting against the prejudice of his people. An Andarion without a father is not something anyone wants to be. But when his companion's brother draws him into a plot against the Andarion crown, he finds himself torn between the loyalty to the planetary government that his mother has beaten into him and his own beliefs of justice and right. Now he must decide for himself to remain a pawn or to defy everything and everyone he's ever known to stand up to tyranny. It's a gamble that will either save his life or end it. And when old enemies align with new ones, it's more than just his own life at risk. And more than just his homeworld that will end should he fail.

    Love listening to audiobooks, and being swept away by a great story and narrator. It's my therapy, and I need it daily!

    Story
    "Major Fan of Sherrilyn Kenyon!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely! I have recommend this series to all my friends that like PNR and Sci-fi and they've all said they love this series.


    What other book might you compare Born of Defiance to and why?

    I don't read many Sci-fi romances; however, I love SK Dark Hunters series so I wanted to give this series a shot to see if I would like it. I am so glad I did, I loved it!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There was not a scene I did not like, but I especially love the scene regarding the voicemail message Jane left for Talyn (don't want to ruin it for anyone.)


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    SK books are well-rounded in my opinion. They have suspense, action, humor, and romance, and this story had me on the edge of the seat, panting, and laughing out loud ~ wow!


    Any additional comments?

    Definitely worth a credit.

    "Sherrilyn Kenyon does it again!"

    Once again Ms. Kenyon hits a home run! This next chapter of her "Born of", or " League ", series was well worth the wait! This book got my attention from the beginning and never let go. I found myself liking our hero and heroin right from the start. There was just enough strife, trouble, love and understanding to make the story believable, and to keep you on the edge of your seat! I never found myself board with the action or the banter between the characters. This one was well worth the credit! Now I have to wait for another book to be published. As always Fred Berman does no wrong!

    "EXCELLENT WRITER AND NARRATOR"

    I finished the book in one day. I love the hero,, Talyn Batur and his companion. They both complement each other. Always there for each other and their love is so strong. I like how stoic he is in hard times. Love Fred Berman's performance and the different voices for all the different characters. Very well done indeed. I up understand the next book in the series will released later part of this year? I hope so.

    "Freaking Awesome! ! !"

    I absolutely loved this book. OMG it was awesome. Romance, intrigue, action. Never a dull moment. The League books keep getting better and better. Talyn and Felicia, what a heartwarming couple. Love,love,loved them together. Definitely looking forward to the next installment of The League As usual Mr Berman's narration was fantastic. Highly recommend the entire series.

    Story
    "Classic Kenyon. !!!"

    I'm on my third listen. This book was ambitious because it introduced about a dozen new characters while at the same time either advancing the storyline of and/or providing more backstory for half a dozen reoccurring characters.

    We now know where Ren's ties to the Tyvali originated.

    Nero became a little bit less mysterious.

    We learned a lot about Jane.

    The Hauk family tragedies are explained in a way that a puppet master is revealed. There are schemes and motives we didn't even know existed . I personally would not have been able to connect those dots.

    If you have not read Born of Night you got a Cliff's Notes version. Again more man behind the mirror type of revelations, which in this case was a perfect approach because it made an old storyline relevant to the new book instead of just being a regurgitation of old characters.

    Best of all , every reoccurring characters either present or mentioned in this book were all there for a reason and not just because they're fan favorites.

    I have to admit that I didn't want to like this book. I didn't understand why Sherrilyn would introduce so many new characters to the universe when they were still stories left to be told. If you feel the same, just hang in there. TOTALLY worth it.

    "Hot Andarion!"

    Talyn is not one to be mistaken for a pushover. You mess with someone he loves and you will know exactly why a war haulk is so dangerous.

    "Predictable story line"

    I've read most of the books in this series, and I am a fan. However I really was not impressed with this book. The story line was very predictable and the main characters seem to fall into the same scenario as others in the series.

    "Fred Berman"

    I almost always read the book prior to listening to it. With this one, I started w the audio. I love the little hints of emotion that are included in this book. That part of the experience can only come from listening.

    Story
    "born of defiance, he is..."

    good book but not my favorite. born of fury(Dancer's story) is still my #1 out of all the books in this series.

    this had a more serious tone to it. not that the others didn't but it didn't have that witty comebacks just like the other books did which is understandable since Talyn only had his mom and Felicia. on another note, i like this better than some of the books because Talyn isn't too insecure about himself unlike other characters in the series. He is defiant, protective, and he doesn't see himself lacking by any means. He adapts in every situation he's dealt with.

    i like this book because for a change, the male lead and the female lead was never sexually abused, hadn't been tortured gorily. and though Felicia doesn't kick ass like Janey or other female characters, she's got fire in her and guts too. she isn't fragile like Nykirian's wife.

    always love Fred Berman for bringing the characters to life.

    overall, good story... the reader could more than understand how this book fits within the whole series. unlike the 'born of ice' book, where i felt it was rushed and should have been written after this book since it really didn't weave together with the others.
