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.

    "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.

    Story
    "Good but familiar storyline and whinny female"

    This seemed ALOT like Dark Hunter series. Don't get me wrong I love Sherrilyn Kenyon, but this story was so familiar with Acheron that is was scary... Well all but the Heroine, whom was lovable in Ash's tale.

    This book's female heroine was weak, whinny and undeserving. I never warmed up to her or felt she was deserving of such a strong male character like that of Nykyrian. She nev really grows up and repeatedly makes the same naive mistake when it comes to blaming the man she loves as being uncaring despite know first hand about his horrific past. Another reviewer called her TSTL ( too stupid to live) and I would agree.
    I would really like to try the next book in the storyline however I just think they're going to align way too much with another series by this author.
