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?

    "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.

    "Great story but very violent"
    Would you listen to Born of Silence again? Why?

    no. the unending detailed violence to Darling was enough the 1st time.


    What was most disappointing about Sherrilyn Kenyon’s story?

    The graphic violence. It was too much. I found it very disturbing.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I love all the interaction between Darling and his Sentella friends. I also love Darling's relationship with Maris.


    Any additional comments?

    Love Sherrilyn Kenyon's books. They are so original with great characters. Holter Graham does a fantastic job.

    Story
    "I lost a whole nights sleep to finish listening!"
    Where does Born of Silence rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    of the 200 or so books I've listened to, this one is about number 3. I want to listen again, I'm glad I purchased it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Zarya Starska - a powerful female lead, who has common sense, personal strength and is not fooled by initial appearances. She questions the status quo and sticks by her man no-matter-what.


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

    Maris Sulle. Holter reads him as a gay man...but still a man. Maris is lovable, attractive, physically powerful, and self-confident, regardless of his surroundings. Maris seemed very real to me.


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

    YES! I did listen in one sitting; earphones while laying in bed, speakers while driving to work!


    Any additional comments?

    Sherrilyn Kenyon writes with wisdom and insight. She seems to understand human pain, both physical and emotional. I can't wait for 'whatever' comes next!

    "Hummmmmm........."
    What did you like best about Born of Silence? What did you like least?

    I liked this audio book, but didn't love it. After listening to Born of Shadows and how Darling was described, I was disappointed by this Darling. In Shadows he is a lethal, but charming, rarely using foul language. In Silence he started off crude and got worse. Also, Kenyon uses “Sweetie” as an endearment for everyone in her books and it drove me crazy. I would have loved different people using different terms of endearment. I loved Marris and how he interacts with Darling.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Sherrilyn Kenyon? Why or why not?

    I will continue to buy her books because I enjoy most of what she writes. I'll be looking forward to her next in the series.


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

    Holter Graham does a wonderful job, but these are the only audio books that I have heard him on.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall, I would recommend this book, especially if you are a fan of Kenyon’s and of the League Series.

    "Mixed feelings"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes just for the simple fact that you can not read a series and read all of the books.


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

    Oh god yes! I love love me some Holter Graham. He did a good job with this book but to date its not his best. I think it had alot to do with the story tho a little depressing.


    Any additional comments?

    While this booked reminded me alot of Acheron's, I found this one to have very few laugh out loud moments or even happy moments in it. While I love all of Mrs. Kenyon's books this one left me a little depressed. I understand that people go threw really bad things in life and after all that is why we fall in love with the people in the books but it seemed like she had to keep reminding us of the bad stuff every other sentence. I kept waitting for the book to lighten up and let us really see the love the 2 had for each other and you would get a glimpse but its almost followed by and OH NO he/she cant ever trust me again. While they did get their happy ending so to say, I think I could of done with out alot of bringing up the drama of life over and over and over again.
