Description: Product Description

In the Ichidian Universe where The League is law, most live in fear. We fight back. Welcome to a world where corrupt assassination politics dominate everyone. It's kill or be killed. Welcome back to the futureā€¦and meet hell's new breed of heroes.

Devyn Kell spent his life in service to the League until he learned of the double dealing and backstabbing that was costing innocent people their lives. Refusing to play those politics, he became a Runner--someone who makes sure planets get the weapons, medicine and supplies they need to survive. May the gods have mercy on any who get in his way, because he definitely won't.

Alix Garran is a woman on the run from a past she can't escape. Signing on to work for Devyn as a System's Engineer, she finds a cause she can fight for--and a man she can respect. But as Alix's past catches up to her, and Devyn's old enemies turn lethal, they have to fight togetherā€¦or fall alone, in Born of Ice, the third bestselling League novel from Sherrilyn Kenyon.

Reviews: Cindy (USA: NV) (2010/08/03):
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?

Definitely read in order...

1. Born of the Night (1996)
2. Born of Fire (2009)
3. Born of Ice: Love in Another Time, Another Place (1994)
aka Paradise City
4. Fire and Ice appears in Man of my Dreams (2001)
4. Fire and Ice also appears in In Other Worlds (omnibus) (2010)
5. Born of Shadows (2010)
6. Born of Desire (2011)
