Hunted. Hated. Betrayed. Dagger Ixur is on the run for his life. As one of the most recognizable members of his royal house, he has a bounty on his head that guarantees him no quarter from any friend or even family. But surrender isn’t in him. He will fight to the bitter end. A resolve that is sorely tested when he narrowly escapes a trap that leaves him severely wounded. With what he believes is his dying breath, he saves a boy born to an extinct race from a group out to enslave the kid for his legendary abilities.
Ushara Altaan has spent her entire life hating those born to nobility. After all, it was a royal house that drove her entire species into virtual extinction. As a rare Andarion Fyreblood, she is sworn to end the existence of any royal she finds. But when Dagger saves her son’s life, she is torn between her people and a debt that can never be repaid.
Yet worse than Dagger’s family that’s still out to end hers, are the League assassins after him who will stop at nothing to claim the lives of her Tavali family. The only hope she has to save them all is to put their future and her faith into the hands of the very enemy whose grandmother personally extinguished Ushara’s legendary lineage. But how can she ever trust Dagger when he is a disinherited outlaw whose very name is synonymous with betrayal?
I am absolutely infatuated with Sherrilyn Kenyon League series. With this series, you will wind up cheering for when the scalawag/villainess at long last gets their comeuppance. You will wind up crying when an adored character experiences trouble times. Well in Born of Legend I ended up experiencing various feelings.
It’s not very frequently that I have feelings of regret for the way I felt about a character. But after reading this book, I would do anything to take back what I thought and said about Jullien.
On the off chance that you read the other books in this series, you will realize what I mean. They said you ought to never judge a book by its cover, don’t pass judgment on a man unless you have strolled a mile in their shoes. I don’t think I could have overcome everything Jullien had to, in order to survive. I found myself wanting to snatch and hold him tight. But again, I found myself crying, anytime Ushara or some other character held him.
In my opinion, this is the best book in the series to date. My recommendation…you should read The League: Nemesis Rising from the beginning. I will also recommend this book for any booklover who likes their men broken, however, who is adequately capable of overcoming any struggles that the world may toss his way.
