Publisher's Summary

In a universe where corruption and deception rule all aspects of life, sparks of rebellion threaten to ignite.

As the Resistance leader, Zarya Starska's only goal is to topple the government that destroyed her entire family and left her penniless. Her biggest asset is a mysterious man known only as Kere.

But Kere has a dark secret. Born into a world that is as privileged as it is corrupt, his real name is Darling Cruel - and he is heir to the government Zarya wants to overthrow. No one has ever seen the real man behind the legend - no one except Zarya. But when she allows a weapon he designed to be used against his beloved sister, all bets are off.

Betrayed by the Resistance, Darling's goal is not only to reign, but to kill every Resistance member he can find. Zarya must stop Darling's reign of terror, but can she reach past his insanity to restore the hero who once fought by her side?

    "Poor Darling"

    If you're familiar with the Ichidian universe then you know that our heroes are tortured. This is especially true for Darling Cruel. He's tortured in his past as well as his present and it just breaks my heart.

    If you're famliar with Kenyon, then you can figure out how it ends for our hero. Still, getting there was heart wrenching.

    Story
    "My Favorite League Book"
    If you could sum up Born of Silence in three words, what would they be?

    First let me applaud Sherrilyn Kenyon and Holter Graham on another great audio book. The story is heart wrenching at times I found myself wiping my tears away. Holter Graham is so enjoyable to listen to...one of my favorite narrators. So many life lessons in this book 'You can't change the past nor the future but you can make a difference today'. The book does include many characters from the prior books so I reccomend starting with book 1 if you are new to the series. The book is very long but I finished it very quickly...I could not stop listening to it. The love story is amazing. The cruelty Darling faced throughout his life is unimaginable however he remains a man of great character. This audio book is definitely a must hear.


    What other book might you compare Born of Silence to and why?

    Born of silence has the feel of books by Lara Adrian, J.R. Ward and Pamela Palmer as far as the alpha males who stick together. Also has the strong woman who stands by her man no matter what.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Too many to list. I loved all the one liners though.


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

    Both...at times I found myself crying and then laughing at some of the funny one liners.

    "There is something missing."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Born of Silence to be better than the print version?

    I consider them both great. There are times I like to cross stitch and I don't want to watch TV so I put in my IPod and listen to a talking book. My problem with the audible version of Born of Silence is that the Prologe is missing in totality. I have downloaded it twice and it is missing. I love this book, but would have really enjoyed hearing the very first part.

    Story
    "A little too far"
    What did you like best about Born of Silence? What did you like least?

    Wow, I don't know where to start. It is as hard to read as Acheron's; with all the torture and all, but this goes a little foo far. The takes torture for torture sake instead of adding to the story. I almost thought it was therapy of some kind, for who, I'm not sure. It is beyond what Ash had to endure, enough said.

    The GOOD part of this book is the relationship btwn Darling and Maris, it is beautiful. And I look forward to continuing it with Maris's book, hopefully. Also, the humor and banter amoung the Sentella members is wonderful, it had me grinning from ear to ear. I liked this book better than Retribution, but not as much as Ash's book. Also, why is this series called The League when really, The League are minor characters at best. Anyway, I would recommend it only if you like the series and want to continue to be a part of the characters' journey. But I would NOT recommend it as a stand alone read.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Maris and Ture's book.


    Which character – as performed by Holter Graham – was your favorite?

    Maris


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes, but it never will be.

    "Kenyon Addict!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Born of Silence to be better than the print version?

    I love all of Kenyon's books and listen to most of them. This sci-fi series is great. But I will probably not listen to many more -- I will buy them instead. The audio is very similar in this series to The Chronicles and The Night Hunter series and for a fan that reads it all the same type of audio performance muddles the books.

    And they are much too good for that to happen!

    Story
    "Another great addition to The League Series."
    What made the experience of listening to Born of Silence the most enjoyable?

    The story flows very well and with it being such a long book that is important. It didn't drag too long on any one part so it made me want to keep listening more and more.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Maris or Caillen, that both add such good comic relief from the real serious and depressing aspects of what occur in the book.


    What about Holter Graham’s performance did you like?

    As always he is perfect. Cannot imagine anybody else reading the books.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "When secrets are revealed!!"


    Any additional comments?

    The action in this book isn't quite as good as some of the others but the story still keeps you wanting more.

    "Wonderful restart of the series"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Great series! Make sure you start at the first one Born of Night. Sherrilyn Kenyon has created a world that is believable and wonderful. She creates an interesting group of characters and places them in intense situations. I have read all of her books and would recommend them to others. Changing the fact that Darling was not gay was totally covered and workable. Catching up on the lives of previous characters is great and adds to the fun.Keep up the great stories.

    Narration was good and pleasing to the ear. A few pronunciation difficulties but acceptable. Nice mellow tones and inflections.
