    "Excellent contiunation of League story!"

    I had been waiting for a very long time it seemed to me for the next League novel. Then as always Ms. Kenyon knocked this one out of the park. This is a on the edge of your seat high adventure you never know WHO is going to come out of the shadows next. Mr. Graham is perhaps my favorite narrator, his voice is smooth and you can just transport yourself to this universe. So take my advice and buy this amazing audiobook. ENJOY!

    "A good "Date" book"

    The story was entertaining and was clearly written from a female perspective. If you ever had the urge to ask your girlfriend to sit through an audio book with you, you might just want to consider this book. There is action, there is romance, and no unpleasant loose ends that might interfere with what may turn out to be a very satisfying book. Afterall - it can happen anytime.

    "Great series. Worth every credit."

    The story: The characters are believable and engaging. They are dynamic. The plots are interesting and fast-moving with just enough twists to keep a sharp mind attentive.

    The performance: The reader was great. She really brought the characters to life. She made the action scenes and scenes with emotion really shine. I've since gone looking for other things that she reads.

    If another installment of this series came available, it would jump to the top of my wish list.

    "The more I listen the more I love it."
    Would you listen to Born of Shadows again? Why?

    Yes and Yes. I have listened to this story several times now and it has gotten better with each time. There are nuances and character references that I just did not get the first time through so it's still captivating.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Oh that is hard to say the characters are so well developed that I either love or hate them all, depending on weather they are the good guys are not.


    Have you listened to any of Holter Graham’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have found that Holter Graham is a very consistent reader and has the ability to even make authors that I would rather not read a treat to listen to.

    I really enjoyed this hook in the series. Caillen is a wonderful hero and the interaction between him and his friends is laugh out loud funny.

    "Loved the mix of Sci Fi and Romance!"

    This was my first Sherrilyn Kenyon book ever! and I loved it! Holter Graham just made this book for me. I don't know whether or not the first three books are worth buying to read (I don't think I'd like the readers given the samples) but I did get the next book -- both of them on sale, and have enjoyed the ride. Might check out some of her other books now given how much I enjoyed this one!

    "Enjoyable"
    What did you love best about Born of Shadows?

    The space battles between the main characters and the people who wanted them dead.


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

    When the main male character responded to the question, "Do you care for her?"


    What about Holter Graham’s performance did you like?

    He read the book as if he was each playing each character part.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, it was hard to find a spot to stop.
