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!

    "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.

    "Romance novel with assassins and space ships."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No. I didn't realize it was going to be a romance novel at its core. I hate romance novels but the story was pretty good if you take that part out. I won't be reading any more books by this author. Oops.

    "great start for the series"

    not knowing that this is a series, i listened to Born of Fury first so i can't help but compare. i did enjoy this book but i liked Hauk's story better. this is more predictable and it didn't have that much humor than Born of Fury. although it had a couple of fight scenes, it wasn't as intense. it didn't really put me on the edge of my seat. as for the male and female lead, Nykyrian's past is very dark and sad... not for the weak of heart. for someone who is very skillful and lethal, he also had a lot of self doubt because of his past. as for Kiara, sheltered and loved, she only sees the good in everything and everyone. so IMO, she seemed to always think that she is the one to fix the broken Nykyrian. which in the end, well..... just read or listen to the book. she is not weak by all means, she can be feisty but she can also easily become the victim. fragile i guess is the word i am looking for. overall, it's a good start for this series. still looking forward to the camaraderie, the insults, the puns and the tightnit friendship the Sentella has to offer. as for the narration, it was clear and good. but it didn't really bring the characters to life... sorry, if i didn't get to listen to Fred Berman first, i would have thought it to be great.

    "Love this series.. Period..."

    I just completed Born of Defiance, and decided to start all over again. So my only issue with this one is the Narrator. It would be GREAT if this one could be re-recorded with Fred Berman. He has been the best narrator for this series. But other than that, I love this series a smidgen more than the Dark Hunter series, which I love as well.
