OK-I'm back to loving the series. [I had some trouble with the heroine in book 2 - but she's the hero's mom in this one and has improved with age.:]
Devyn is the son of Sin and Shahara from Born of Fire and like his father is doctor and a world saver. The most inexplicable point for me was here - why was he working for the League at the start of the book? Didn't Mom, Dad, and Uncle Nykarian make clear to him that protecting the innocent is WAY down on the League's To-Do list? Of course, some of Nykarian's kids take the League Assassin route too...
Alix is the tortured heroine who is sent out to bring him down. She figures out early on that he is not the bad guy he's been painted, but what's a girl with a mom and younger sister being held captive by Very Bad People to do?
It has action, romance, humor, and all the characters were entertaining along with some interesting twists and bit parts for the players and some of the children from the first two books. What's not to love?
