  1. 4 StarsWhat up, what up, what up my friends.How was everyone s holiday Mine was swell I spent Christmas Eve spreading holiday cheerAKA champagneBut what can I say And Christmas Eve hung the fuck over from all the champagne.Whoops Let s just say I never realized how loud the ripping of wrapping paper sounded But I digress This book I deliberated over my rating on this for a bit I was really enjoying everything and then there were a few too many convenient twists toward the end for my liking But a [...]

  2. This book did not start off well for me The author has a really bad habit of over describing everything Every reference to something was like it was the first time We had to hear the exact description all over again Also, I really, really hate when an author has a character think something then immediately qualifies it Like he didn t have time to humor her, but he ached so badly inside with the need to comfort her That was my own example, but crap like that happened constantly Also, Nykyrian and [...]

  3. Here are some taglines that would be really great to put on the back cover of this book Troubled ex assassin Nykyrian takes on his most difficult assignment ever to protect the Princess Kiara from the universe s most deadly killers But when things turn personal, Nykyrian finds that saving Kiara may mean facing the one enemy he fears most of all love Or Like Twilight, but dumber and dirtier Maybe I should say first that this was a new genre for me One time I wrote a negative review of a book base [...]

  4. 5 stars Paranormal Sci Fi RomanceI ve had Kenyon s Dark Hunter series on my TBR list for quite some time now, but I m a little bit intimated by the number of books there are to get caught up on The premise of The League series sounded interesting, the characters seemed intriguing, and with only three books produced so far, it felt a little less daunting of an undertaking The main word that comes to mind to describe how I felt about this book isWOW And if it s indicative of her other works, then [...]

  5. I ve been a huge fan of Sherrilyn Kenyon s writing ever since I first discovered the Dark Hunter series and that amazing hero, Acheron When I heard about the re release of The League series, I was thrilled until I learned it was Sci Fi because I m really not a big fan of the genre Truthfully, the only other Sci Fi book I have ever read and really liked, loved in fact, was The Host by Stephenie Meyer The Host, like Born of Nightwas pretty light on the techie stuff which is why it worked for me Th [...]

  6. First half was GREAT Loved the world building and action Second half was horrible The MCs acted like absolute morons and the whole second half was pretty much a pity party for the main guy to make us feel sorry for him I felt sorry for him even in the first half, I really didn t need to have it shoved down my throat like that You know like, too much sweets makes you sick, for me, too much forcing me to feel sorry for the dude made me irritated Oh well.

  7. Final rating 5 5 stars If I have to die, I d rather die knowing someone cared about me, just once Is that really too much to ask For us Yes It is We are the gutter and the gutter is all we ll ever be Don t reach out for the stars They ll burn you until there s nothing left Then let me burn Reread this because i needed to remind myself how much i love this series i actually read all of the books and i am quite up to date with them, but i need to love them again Not to mention how much i love all [...]

  8. 5 Stars Nykyrian Quikiades is the man behind the Nemesis mask, a name that strikes fear to the hearts of the most hardened criminals A fugitive from the League, with contracts for his assassination from several planets goverments, Nykyrian is a man fighting a war against an organisation that has grown too corrupt to dispense the justice and protection it was founded for His latest responsibility is protecting Princess Kiara Zamir, a woman caught in the middle of her father s political difference [...]

  9. Okay, I think I am an official futuristic space romance convert now I loved what Ms Kenyon did with this concept I thought she did a very good job with the world building, but I caught a couple of slips where she would describe things that I really had trouble believing they would have in a futuristic setting on another planet But then I have no creativity when it comes to making up technological devices and futuristic settings, so I can hardly judge her Overall, I was happy and I didn t find th [...]

  10. I thought I might like this one It opened with an intro to our anti hero as he refused to kill a child in his role as exceptionally deadly assassin He contacts a friend who it seems might be telling the story and takes his leave so as to protect said friend He s going to fight rather than be killed by his former superiorse only outcome for an assassin who wants to, retire.Then we jump to the point of view of a scrappy young woman who s been kidnapped She fights against her situation, she will no [...]

  11. 2.5I wish I d read this when it was first published and I hadn t been paying attention to certain things I would have liked it than I do now With that out of the way, if you aren t in the mood for a sci fi paranormal romance featuring a very tortured hero and one of the most annoying heroines ever, I suggest you skip this Since I was, you could say I kind of liked it The first half of the story at least I like this idea of the Ichidian Universe, where a small group of former assassins and fugit [...]

  12. You have to learn to smile through your pain Sometimes it s all we got She belonged to the day, to warmth and sunshine.Her world was light and wonderful, filled with love and laughter.And he was born of night His mother was the darkness, her cold embrace was all he had a right to crave.I love that the story focuses on the characters and not the sci fi world and its easy to readNykyrian as the hero was hard to love, his cold approach to everyone, just wants you to squirm and hide and dang it fru [...]

  13. This was simply amazing I thought I would get tired by its size, but as it turned out, I wasn t bored for a single minute while reading this Fans of tortured heroes who also happen to be mercenaries assasins outlaws should grab this one asap as Nykyrian is one of the best heroes in that area Think about Zarek or Judd Laurens or Bastien The last 100 pages disappointed me somewhat with the way the plot twisted in so many ways, but in the end, nothing can dull the awesomeness of this book Happily c [...]

  14. 4.5 Rating.Short review.Excellent plot, characters, chemistry, pacing and so much Loved this tortured hero and beautiful princess love story Nykrian the hero was incredible My heart broke for him and all he endured in his younger years, just heart heartwrenching He was everything I look for in a hero, alpha, brave, sweet and totally in love with the heroine, just about perfect Kiara, the heroine was beautiful, sassy and irritating for about a quarter of the book but redeemed herself from that p [...]

  15. I loved this book There are a few nitpicky things here and there that could have been improved on, but there was so many things that I loved that I can look past the bad.This book is pretty much The Black Dagger Brotherhood in space If you re a fan of the BDB, Zsadist in particular, then you ll probably love this as well.Basically, the story centers around Nykyrian and Kiara, who couldn t be different Nykyrian is a highly skilled assassin who was tortured and abused during most of his adolescen [...]

  16. This review can also be found on my blog A Match Made in HeavenThis book was amazing It was the best book I have read in a long time It was also my first Sherrilyn Kenyon book and I look forward to there being many of them in my future I really enjoyed going back to my roots and reading some sci fi, while still indulging my new obsession of romance And it really had everything Laser blasters, space dog fights, bars full of unidentifiable aliens All very cool But most of all it had romance OMG I [...]

  17. Enjoyed Nyk He is the one that makes this book worthwhile I enjoyed the banter between him and the other secondary characters His personality was superb, particularly his loyalty to those he loves His past broke my heart and had me tearing up Needless to say that i have officially declared myself, his woman smirk I enjoyed the world the author has built for these characters and i like how we were given enough detail to embellish a bit.Pet peeves While it s not the first time i wanted to slap a h [...]

  18. I love this series I so wish there was a lot of them sherrilyn kenyon has got to be one of the best modern authors around.

  19. Spoilers are abound in this review Read at your own risk.Okay, well I lied about Darling s book being my last Kenyon novel and ended up doing this one on a dare Why Because I am silly like that and am just a glutton for punishment, especially since I know the punishment before it is even spoken Anyway, it s basically like any other book Kenyon has ever written The only thing that consistently changes The character names, nothing , nothing less We have the same setup for love, plot, back stories, [...]

  20. Futuristic sci fi books are not necessarily my favorite genre, but this book rocked my socks off every bit as much as one of Sherrilyn Kenyon s Dark Hunter books The flavor may be a little different, but the woman can write one hell of a love story in the midst of fantastic world building.Nykyrian is a half breed part human, part Andarion, rejected by both species He is a hardened assassin, formerly a soldier of The League, who now runs a rag tag group of warriors who police the corrupt agency O [...]

  21. The ending saved this book from a 3 star review for me.This book definitely grew on me At the beginning of the book I wanted to b itch slap Kiara I thought she was really annoying considering Nykyrian and the others were trying to protect her I have to admit I really liked when Syn told her what was what Well, finally after she watched the videos of Nykyrian when he was young she improved greatly Anyone who knows me knows I love books with babies in them so this was a pleasant surprise The truth [...]

  22. I unashamedly love Sherrilyn Kenyon s books Yes, even while I read them I am well aware that they are a bit stupid, a bit trite, but I still love them Born of Night is no different In fact, I think from memory that Born of Night was the first Sherrilyn Kenyon book I ever tried I pretty much read all of her then available books back to back to back over a series of months and had a newfound love of all things vampire, gods and monsters Born of Night is the story of how a deadly assassin falls for [...]

  23. I was mesmerized by the Ichidian universe when I read the short story Fire and Ice in the Man of My Dreams anthology and when I realized Born of Night was about Adron s parents I was instantly curious And in the end disappointed.For starters, it was 200 pages too long, giving Ms Kenyon the opportunity to transform Kiara from a whiny, and slightly annoying heroine into an obnoxious, selfish, spoiled, judgmental brat One of those heroine you wish for someone to rape, strangle, stab, and dismember [...]

  24. GUILTY PLEASURE HEYYYYYYY So this book was really fun, about the biggest baddest space assassin falling for a princess dancer Yeah, that wasn t the best one line summary, but I did enjoy this book Nik was a GREAT hero character who was abused as a child and trained to be the ultimate badass assassin who is on the run from the League, the assassin s guild, that he left for moral reasons He ends up having to protect Kiara, a famous dancer daughter of royalty, from assassination attempts and they f [...]

  25. What a great read, definitely different from everything I have ever read which was a nice change I must admit this wasn t as anything I had in mind I would be reading I had read some reviews out there and formed a completely wrong idea about this series, that s why it took me so long to get to read it I realized it s not easy to describe this series.In this installment we get a lot on world building as it s usual in first books in a series, but that s not a bad thing in this case as the informat [...]

  26. This one is a tough book to categorize It s technically sci fi romance, but the storyline revolved around a world of assassins The story did feature spaceships, other planets, and other races, but the main focus of the story shifted between the hero Nykyrian and his tally of very detailed kills , and the woman Kiara that he was protecting.Nykyrian is a scarred, lonely assassin who is cold and unwilling to get close to anyone When he finds a hostage on a ship that his team was sent to destroy, he [...]

  27. I was wanting a change from my normal genre, and was really looking forward to this, but This book was overloaded with angst pages and pages of the same angst I had to start skipping some as I felt I had read the same lines over and over again.The world being built had a lot of potential but it seemed to get lost in excessive past experiences of the most violent abuse The characters had some decent development when not overloaded with angst of I m not good enough or he s an assassin but the plot [...]

  28. I really like Sherrilyn Kenyon, but my only complaint is that all of her heroes are either beaten, violated, verbally castigated, or all 3, and never feel they are worth anything This is no exception While I really enjoyed this story, much so than I ever expected, I m so sick of having the hero, the alpha male, feel he is worthless that being said, I can move on.I loved Nykyrian, I loved his honor, and sense of duty, and I loved how he was with Kiara.I really liked our heroine Kiara She was a d [...]

  29. Born of Night was a brilliantly written story that I thoroughly enjoyed At 533 pages, the book is admittedly long However, I can t recall ever feeling like there were parts of the book that could have been excluded To the contrary, the character development and level of detail used to describe the Ichidan Universe was perfect I completely fell in love with Nykyrian, who is a great addition to the tortured soul heroes out there Though Nykyrian certainly goes through hell, enduring the worst forms [...]

  30. Yes, Born of Night does very much have the feel of Kenyon s Dark Hunters, and yes, Nykyrian reminded me a bit of Ash but you know what I don t care, I love it when bad boys go good and I liked the dangerous yet honorable assasin who is transformed by love and acceptance and his heroine Kiara with her own ghosts is pretty good too If I had any issues with the story, they were that Kenyon so brutally abuses Nykyrian Like Acheron and Zarek, Nyk has the abusive hellacious childhood and early life wh [...]
