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.

    "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.

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

    This was a great book when I read it. The Audible makes each of the characters come to life. It makes you seem like you are standing in their presence and part of the action.


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

    I love all the League books.


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

    I love Darling and Maris and Caillen the best.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Caillen realizes that he loves Des and what love truly means.


    Any additional comments?

    I also like when the Queen and the son are reunited. I would love to have the back story between the Queen and Chaydens and Des's father and how things go with the reunion.

    "Another Great Book!"

    Another Great book in a great series! I have read and reread the League series and now I am listening to them as well. The audible version added something even more to a series I really didn't think could get any better. I am very happy I purchased this version. Now I can listen to it when I am unable to read it or read and listen at the same time.
    I would recommend this book to anyone who likes sci fi romance.

    "Series Fan"

    Love all the stories and characters. So glad they all get fleshed out later in the series. Also the accents and voices change in later narrations and I like the newer versions of Chey, Fain, Hauk, and Nyk's voices better.
