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.
With assassination contracts out on both of them, Caillen and Desideria must learn to fight together or die alone. And if they fail, their governments will fall into the hands of an unimaginable evil.
The #1 New York Times bestselling author Sherrilyn Kenyon is a powerhouse with more than 20 million copies of her books in print in over 30 countries. She is one of only three authors in 2008-2009 to claim nine #1 slots on the New York Times bestseller list. During that same time, she claimed ten #1 slots on Publisher's Weekly.
Sherrilyn lives a life of extraordinary danger... as does any woman with three sons, a husband, a menagerie of pets and a collection of swords. But when not running interference (or dashing off to the emergency room), she's found chained to her computer where she likes to play with all her imaginary friends.
"Kenyon boldly goes where no author has gone before and claims yet another genre as her own. With her League series, she has created a new, addictive universe and proven herself the undisputed master of the cross-genre novel."
"[A] publishing phenomenon...[Sherrilyn Kenyon is] the reigning queen of the wildly successful paranormal scene."
"Kenyon's writing is brisk, ironic, sexy, and relentless imaginative."
"Kenyon delivers the goods readers have come to expect, and more."
