Publisher's Summary

In a world where the League and its assassins rule, where betrayal and treachery are everywhere... the only survivors are those ones who are... Born of Shadows.

For Caillen Dagan, a defiant soldier of fortune, survival isn't a right, it's a brutal daily battle. Moving through the Ichidaian universe like a wraith, his brushes with the law and death are legendary. But when an act of rare heroism reveals his hidden birthright, he's forced into a world much more dangerous and cold-hearted than the bloody streets where he was raised-one of obscene wealth and lethal politics.

Ferocious and determined, Desideria serves as an official bodyguard for her queen. Born of questionable genetics, she will do anything to prove herself worthy of the weapons she carries and the position she's won by combat. But when she uncovers a ruthless plot to assassinate the queen and overthrow her country's government, Desideria is caught in the crosshairs.

    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!

    What did you love best about Born of Shadows?

    The action and growing romance!


    What does Holter Graham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Great reader!

    yes!


    Any additional comments?

    I am hooked on these characters and each book incorporates old ones and introduces more interesting potential new books. Man alive, these are awesome so far. FYI the first book I read in paperback and it can not be missed! Worth every penny.
