Publisher's Summary

"It's official Take a Psycho to Work Day. Why else would I be here?"

Hunted. Hated. Betrayed. Dagger Ixur is on the run for his life. As one of the most recognizable members of his royal house, he has a bounty on his head that guarantees him no quarter from any friend or even family. But surrender isn't in him. He will fight to the bitter end. A resolve that is sorely tested when he narrowly escapes a trap that leaves him severely wounded. With what he believes is his dying breath, he saves a boy born to an extinct race from a group out to enslave the kid for his legendary abilities.

Ushara Altaan has spent her entire life hating those born to nobility. After all, it was a royal house that drove her entire species into virtual extinction. As a rare Andarion Fyreblood, she is sworn to end the existence of any royal she finds. But when Dagger saves her son's life, she is torn between her people and a debt that can never be repaid.

Yet worse than Dagger's family that's still out to end hers, are the League assassins after him who will stop at nothing to claim the lives of her Tavali family. The only hope she has to save them all is to put their future and her faith into the hands of the very enemy whose grandmother personally extinguished Ushara's legendary lineage. But in Born of Legend, how can she ever trust Dagger when he is a disinherited outlaw whose very name is synonymous with betrayal?

    "Long Story ~ Amazing and Well Worth it!"


    Wow! What a long story but oh, so worth it! Sherlyn Kenyon is one of my all time favorite authors!! I can never get enough of her stories. She has such a talent for writing a story about a character who was previously disliked in past stories, and turning that character completely around. Each book tells the story of a character, who's had a horrible past, and it pulls on your heartstrings, and you actually feel empathy for them! It's sad when you have to remind yourself, it's only a character.

    Julian's story did not disappoint! The plot and characters were both captivating, and well developed. It had everything I've come to love about the League series, and the perfect balance between romance, action, sarcasm and dry humor. Well worth the late nights, and the lack of sleep!

    Fred Berman delivers another AWESOME performance! He narrates with such passion, and intensity you can hear, and feel the different emotions throughout the story! He does a Fantastic job bringing both the story and characters to life.

    Worth a credit? Absolutely!! Especially for any Kenyon Menyon fan!

    "Neglected boy runs, falls in love with widow, turns into perfect father, redeems himself and finds meaning of family."

    This book follows the League series, its best if you know about the universe if the League. It doesn't directly follow the last book but rather we see Julian's journey through his eyes and then catch up to the current story. It was a five year span, maybe more and we see glimpse of the other league stories as an outsider. There are also a lot of childhood flashbacks seen in his perspective. Who knew Julian would be the perfect father?

    I never thought I'd like Julian but I did. I actually like his personality more than his twin after this book. He is more flawed and accepts his sins. He is not nearly as arrogant as what was previously portrayed. I want to know more about the Tavali. I will continue this series.

    The only flaw is that there are a lot of characters so if you haven't read/listen to the other books then you will get lost.

    I enjoyed the narrater, his voice is easily believable as many characters. I fall into the story because of how believable the conversations are. That is due inpart to the great writing but also to the character transitions by the narrator. I will probably listen to ths audiobook over and over. Sherrilyn Kenyon is one of my favorite writers of all time and I feel good about using one of my audible credits for this book.

    "Feels like I'm reading the same stories over and over now"

    I really loved the first few League books but now I feel like I'm reading the same story over and over. Kenyon is a master at writing the scarred the hero. She does it in her Dark hunter series and here in the League. It's starting to feel like filler. Pages and pages of trauma and abuse I've already read before. While I do enjoy the scarred hero and I see how it's necessary for the story, it takes over. Which I suppose wouldn't be a problem if I felt like I hadn't already read it before.
    In the first few books I felt myself looking forward to other characters stories, such as Syn and Darling. After finishing this book I don't feel a interest in any of the side characters. I will get the next in the series but I've stopped looking forward to them.

    Story
    "Whew, quite a long book but worth it."

    Since this book spans quite a bit of time it is understandable, but I enjoyed every minute of it. Like the book Styxx this story is about the perceived enemy redone and the story hits on some of the major parts of other books in the series. And while this book is not quite the tear jerker that Styxx was it was still very emotional. Dagger has had a tough life, most of it not of his own doing which makes it hard not to sympathize for him. It was a bit difficult to hear the story from his point of view, it gives a whole other perspective on the characters you know and love, and not all of it good. I love the new characters and hope to see more books with their stories. This series needs to be read in order in order, there is so much story line from the other books. Love Holter Graham wish he read more audiobooks.

    Yes it's long but most good books are not long enough. You want a complete story this is it. Everytime I put it down I couldn't wait to pick it back up.

    "Daggur!!!"

    I listened to it twice back to back. It was initially hard to believe that I would catch feelings for Julian but hearing his transformation into Daggur. has been an adventure well worth the 60 hour trip!
