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.

"Kenyon's writing is brisk, ironic and relentless imaginative." (Boston Globe)
It is slow at the start but it is one of the best books I have listened too. This is the first book of five. I hope the next are as good.
Instead of my inner voice I hear someone elses voice.
I listened to half of the book in one sitting and I am now working on the next part.
I was pleasantly surprised at how great this book is. I had no expectations as it was about aliens and I usually do vampires/ wolves but this was right up there with the best. And I mean the best:BDB, Cat and Bones,any kresley Cole's series, I will read this full series and could not put this book down. Amazing.
Love reading but don't always have time to read. Wife and Mother of 3 kids. Best suggestion my girl friend gave me.
the story gave me background on the characters and made them more personal to me. I kind of fell into this seriers 5 books in through my local library. Now that I know the start of the story this book has more meaning. I have my husband hooked on this authors books.
I love the the hold love and the battle for your sanity. I dont usually sci-fi but this book was to out of this world I'm looking forward to adding the complete series to my wish list.
This is my first Kelly Fish book and I enjoyed the reading
I listen to this book in 2 days. seven hours at work and while preparing dinner and bath time. I really enjoyed this book and the other books are just as exciting.
Not to high read book two years ago without audio think male narrator would have been better stronger voice
plot of story was good
This ranks about the middle. Great narration, the author spoils a good storyline, with trip after trip down the road of erotica.
After the first one or two erotic love scenes, I got the intensity that existed between the two main characters in the story. After that, I had to stop reading.
Beautiful characters, vivid and distinct. Narrators, like Kelly Fish, is why I love audiobooks.
I was surprised by this book, it has been in my wish list pile for several months. I'm sorry I waited so long to listen to it, because it was one of the best books I have read this year. It kept me interested from beginning to end, it everything a book should have action and romance. The narrator was great I really enjoyed listening to her tell the story. I would definitely listen to this book again.
Everything about the story was good.
She did all the voices well.
Action, adventure, romance this book has it all.
Guilty pleasures fantasy romance! Aaaaaahhhhhh Yaaaaaaa.
I love the main characters! I live the plot! I love everything except the narration.
Lords of the Underworld series and Sherrilyn Kenyon's other work Dark Hunter series. They have a very similar way of writing and how the plots progress.
No I would rather read myself.
I've read this book many times so I don't mind spreading it out during a few days.
Don't judge this book by the narration. It is worth the read!
This book is so wonderful as well as the ones after it. I read this book by paperback first and it is go wonderful I had to buy it on Audible! Great action, sci-fi and romance! I even advised my daughter to read this one and it is not often I do that since romance is not her main reading material. Total 5 stars, maybe 6 in my opinion. Worth it!
Yes, this listen will be in my library of books when I need a good hero.
It is hard to pick just one. Riveting.
First time I listened to her . Definitely will listen to her again.
The inner turmoil between the main characters.
I could not wait to listen to this book again, it was so hard to be away from the story line.
The narrator is the same from the Night Huntress series so it took awhile to get used to hearing Bones voice as another character in this book. But the story line was so enthralling and it brought me to tears many times.
When Nykerian and Syn are speaking in the hanger about Keriyn. Nyk says she is worth the risk of his heart.
It was hard to listen to the tortured life of Nykerian but the storyline makes you understand how he became the man he is today.
