"A fate worse than death . . . Bastien Cabarro survived the brutal slaughter of his entire family only to have his wife pin their murders on him. Made Ravin by The League, he is now a target for their assassins-in-training to hunt and kill. The average life expectancy for such beings is six weeks. But defying the odds is what this Gyron Force officer does best, and Bastien won't rest until he lays his betrayers in their graves. Ten years later, he has one chance to balance the scales of justice, provided he relies on his former wingman-- the very sister of the woman who testified against him. Major Ember Wyldestarrin joined the outlaw Tavali the day Kirovar fell into the hands of a tyrant, and she and her sister-team were left on an outpost to die under the barrage of enemy fire. The last thing she wants is to be involved in politics again. But the one thing she wants more than anything is revenge on the tyrant who murdered her parents and forced her and her sisters into exile. Carrying a secret she knows Bastien will annihilate her over, she must find some way to trust her former wingman before he catches on and kills her. Even so, treachery doesn't come easy to a woman who took a loyalty oath to protect her homeworld and comrades-in-arms, especially when Bastien is much more to her than just a former wingman. Yet as she tries to do right for her family, she learns that Bastien doesn't just hold the key to the fate of Kirovar, he is vital to The Sentella-League war, and to The Tavali. If she doesn't ensure he survives this mission, three nations fall, and time for all of them is quickly running out"-- Provided by publisher.

I loved this book, i enjoy the fact that it includes the lives of the other characters in the series and is part of a larger story. I cant wait to read the next book in the series, and I would highly recommend the series to anyone and everyone I know.

I used to love reading Sherrilyn Kenyon until all her books become same old story line and the last book I loved was Acheron but after that I just could not enjoy her anymore since it just became boring and a struggle to read. I tried reading Born of Vengeance which started out good until she crammed every previous character from the League Series into the book which for me ruined the book completely so I ended up skipping like mad to the end. So this is the end for me and I will never ever read another Sherrilyn Kenyon book ever again. I really don't like having my enjoyment of a book ruined. This whole book was one big let down since nothing was original and the characters are just downright boring. For me this was 1/2 star.

Another very good book in The League Series by Sherrilyn Kenyon. I big fan on Sherrilyn Kenyon and she did not disappoint in this book. Bastien finds the love of his life only to have his father force her to no accept his marriage proposal. But when her sister, Alura, fakes a pregnancy to force him to marry her, he does the honorable thing. Little did he know that she was in on a plan to murder most of his family so that his uncle could take the throne. Bastien is accused of the murder of his family and is hunted with a death warrant on him. After many years living alone and fighting for his life, he finds help from his cousin, Julien. Bastien swears to kill his uncle and the plans begin for that to happen. I had a hard time putting this book down. Love this series.
