Publisher's Summary

In the Ichidian Universe, The League and their ruthless assassins rule all. Expertly trained and highly valued, the League Assassins are the backbone of the government. But not even the League is immune to corruption.

Command Assassin Nykyrian Quikiades once turned his back on the League - and has been hunted by them ever since. Though many have tried, none can kill him or stop him from completing his current mission: to protect Kiara Zamir, a woman whose father's political alliance has made her a target.

As her world becomes even deadlier, Kiara must entrust her life to the same kind of beast who once killed her mother and left her for dead. Old enemies and new threaten them both, and the only way they can survive is to overcome their suspicions and learn to trust in the very ones who threaten them the most: each other.

    "Review for both sexes"

    First of all, for the ladies:
    You will fall in love with this exciting book which intertwines deep loving passion with heart stopping action. In a classical sense its a story about a princess that wants to live her life the way she wants and of the tragic hero who thinks he's just in it for money while in truth a strong sense of honor drives his every deed. Their unlikely encounter spawns a passionate love that drives the undercurrent of their interaction between each other, yet the differences of their upbringing makes them question about each others feelings. With added danger of assassins and some politics this book should...nay will keep you on the edge of your seat till the last page. A must buy!

    Now for the guys:
    STAY AWAY FROM THIS BOOK! READ IT AT YOUR OWN RISK! The characters are as 2d as they can possibly get and mostly reminds me of these $5 books where Fabio is holding some blond chick that is about to orgasm just from looking at him (just add space ships in the background). Albeit some of the action can be entertaining, the cheesy love and "struggle" of the characters is not just jokingly bad, its extremely cringe worthy and just plain awkward. Don't get suckered in by all the 5 stars, YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

    "This book is absolutely terrible!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The only people I can imagine enjoying this book would be horny teenage girls who haven't read enough Harlequin romances yet to be bored by the predictable plot and uninteresting characters.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The Girl With All The Gifts


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The performance was okay, given the drivel the poor girl had to work with.


    What character would you cut from Born of Night?

    All of them.


    Any additional comments?

    I have never written a book review before, but I feel strongly enough about this book to want to warn others about it.

    Don’t buy it. Don’t bother. Just re-read Twilight and imagine various alien races instead of vampires and werewolves. Throw in a few complete gaps in plot logic and a whiny, boring heroine that makes Bella look smart and fascinating and you’ve got this piece of absolute drivel.

    There is nothing here but a hackneyed, poorly-written smutty romance with no redeeming qualities whatsoever. I got to within an hour of the end and quit, because I couldn’t believe I had wasted so many hours of my life already, waiting for something to show me why this book has such great reviews. The narrator does a pretty good job, but the book itself is garbage.

    This is the worst book I have tried to listen to in a long time.

    "A Harlequin Romance in space."

    Wow, I should have read the review from Denis!

    This really was not a science fiction action book as much as it was a romance novel. The futuristic aspects with ships and blasters were really just afterthoughts.

    How many times can you read about one character's POV on the attraction to another character? Seriously, every other thought was on their primal attraction.

    I finally gave up 1/2 way through the book.

    "Great start to an Amazing Series"
    Would you listen to Born of Night again? Why?

    Yes i would. I love Nykyrian's story, and Kiara is such a sweetie!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Born of Night?

    I loved when Kiara went shopping with Nykyrian. It would be like a dream come true for most women. I also really loved when kiara was donating clothes and the donation people were snotty and rude about Nykyrian and Kiara let them have it!


    What does Kelly Fish bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I am not a fan of kelly fish narrating this story. It took me about half of the book to be able to just hear what she was reading and not really pay attention to her voice.


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

    I cried when Nyk dropped Kiara off at home. The book made me laugh quite a few times, especially with the guys protecting her at her home, they are hilarious when they are all together.

    "Save your money"

    The narrator is irritating to listen to, very weak character separation.
    This author repeats her character traits , history and environmentally detail to fill the pages.
