The war is on….
Counted among the fiercest Andarion warriors ever born, Hauk is one of the five founding members of the Sentella: An organization that has declared war on the League. They rule the Ichidian universe with an iron fist and terrify it with an army of well-trained assassins. Hauk’s enemies are legion, but he fears nothing and no one. He will do whatever it takes to survive and protect his Sentella brethren. Sumi Antaxas is one of the best assassins the League has ever trained. In her world, failure is not an option and she has never met a target she couldn’t execute. So when she’s assigned Hauk, she believes it’ll be a quick and easy mission.
But nothing is ever as simple as it seems, and Hauk is far better skilled than any she's faced before, in Born of Fury, from number-one best-selling author Sherrilyn Kenyon.

Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
Yes I did liked this book, but essentially it is comparable to all the other stories in this series. So if you’re a SK fan you will love it. But as much as I love SK's work I am getting a little tired of the tortured H/h and how they focused so much on the ugly part of their pasts. The mood of the book lightens the second half even with all the strife still in limbo. Thank God it wasn't as depressing as Darling's or Styxx's story, at which point I might have had to kill myself. I also had to scan my brain for who some of the characters were. I eventually went to Sherrilyn Kenyon's website to read the character's bio to remember, which I think is cool and that all authors should have one. I have always loved Fred Berman.
Yes. The story captivated my sense of adventure as well as my sense of romance. It had a nice grouping of action couples. I liked it.
Sumi - Botanist > Mommy > Assassin > Vixen > Princess
That's a pretty bad-ass character progression for a character.
I have not. But I really liked listening to him. Which says a lot, because I typically don't like male readers. He did a really great job with the voices. In fact, the Andarian voices is going to make me look for more of his work.
Naw. It was fun, though.
What is better than super sexy Hauk; Hauk with kids. I've read all the books in this series and next to Cloak and Silence (Marius' story) this is probably my favorite. Hauk really has never been one of my favorite characters, but I loved his story. Mainly because it wasn't as dark and violent as some of the other books. Sometimes Ms. Kenyon's attempt to create a traumatic backstory or character goes a little overboard for me. I honestly was losing interest in the series if that continued. But the last two books, have hit the right amount of broken MCs finding healing without making me cringe at their backstory. What I really liked about this one was Hauk's interacted with his niece and nephew, it was hilarious. And his romance with Simi was a perfect mix of angst, humor, and love to get to their HEA.
The other amazing thing about this is Mr. Fred Berman, one of the best narrators in the business. He is amazing! Other than not using the same voices for Mari and Ture (and getting Ture's name wrong for a little bit) he was perfection. He truly brings these characters to life for me. Just like in the other books, the entire family makes their appearance to come to Hauk's aid and that is just all kinds of fun.
Definitely worth a credit.
Love it. Fred Berman does such an awesome job with the voices and loved the story line. Hauk has always been one of my tragic favorites and so glad he got his story.
Fred Berman's voices! Loved them. He made the great story line come alive.
Yes. Still think he is one of the best.
Yes. Carried it around with me and played in the car as well.
Best so far. Love this writer and most especially this series.
I am a great fan of Sherrilyn Kenyon and I love The League series . I have to say that I think this may be my favorite so far. This was a great story. Filled with battle, romance, suspense and humor. Loved the way everyone came together to help Hauk and Sumi. Fabulous dialog, strong characters and a steady pace. It left me with a big smile on my face and a warm feeling in my heart.
the constant reference to sex sex sex...
Will try at least another book
No, but he is very good.
Very nicely detailed universe, but the constant sex thoughts get tiresome half way through the book.
I was very disappointed with the book, as it was very simple, predictable, and lacked for everything besides smut. I feel like the author didn't develop very interesting characters. This doesn't belong with top tier fantasy books... The dialogue that was written for a child who may was described as possibly being in diapers (nappies? wtf?) was too wordy, and over the top.. The child dialogue added nothing to the story besides the semi-comical attempted at a mature man trying to sound like a 2 yr old girl. The two main characters fall deeply in love over night.. How very fair tale.. This is not a Fantasy book.. This is a poorly written Romance Novel set in a Sci-Fi Fantasy world ... I wish I would have known... I am surprised I listened to the whole thing.. This is the Second worse book I've ever listened to..
Never. The author seems to like mixing romance novel with fantasy, which really isn't my cup of tea.
That SK, didn't go in to the length of torture like she did with Ash but you still got to know what Hauks life was like.
Darice, because I like seeing him go from disliking Dancer to realizing what the truth was and standing up for what was right
Too many to list but a few:
Darice standing up to his mother, Hauk when he though that Sumi had been killed & the wedding
YES I had a hard time putting it down
places you right in the middle of every scene
I have all of SK's books he reads for and he is very good
I commute and I was glad to return back to the book
I became steadily less interested as I listened until I finally would rather listen to nothing than the next chapter. The people just don't feel real to me. There is also a lot of repetition. The supposed love between the main characters seemed completely random, as it was not based on any shared experience or actions, only that the guy was so 'hot'.
When I read Brandon Sanderson's The Way of Kings, I actually teared up a few times because the characters were so real to me. However, in this book I couldn't care less what happened to any of them.
