Product Description


“[A] publishing phenomenon…[Sherrilyn Kenyon is] the reigning queen of the wildly successful paranormal scene.” –Publisher’s Weekly

"Kenyon's writing is brisk, ironic and relentless imaginative.  These are not your mother's vampire novels." --Boston Globe

"[An] engaging read." --Entertainment Weekly

From the Back Cover



In a universe where assassins make the law, everyone lives in fear—except for Syn. Born of an illicit scandal that once rocked a dynasty, he always knew how to survive on the bloodthirsty streets. But that was then, and the future is now…

Syn was raised as a tech-thief until his livelihood uncovered a truth that could end his life. He tried to destroy the evidence, and has been on the run ever since. Now trained as an assassin, he allows no one to threaten him. Ever. He is the darkness that swallows his enemies whole.

Shahara Dagan is the best bounty hunter in the universe. When Syn comes back on the radar, she’s the only one who can bring him to justice. There’s only one problem: Syn is a close family friend who’s helped out the Dagans countless times. But if she saves him, both of their lives will be on the line. Is Syn’s protection worth the risk? The only hope Shahara has is to find the evidence he buried long ago. Now it’s kill or be killed—and they, the predators, have just become the hunted…

Gotta love Syn April 16 2010
By Avid Reading in NV - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I love Sherrilyn's novels, this was no exception. I liked all the born of.. books. Born of night characters are in this book as well. This is Syn and Shahara's novel. Syn has several past tragedies that he tries to ignore and drown in alcohol. Shahara is a bounty hunter that is trying to make money for her families debt. This takes place in the Ichidian Universe. There are several different planets, species and government systems. One of the systems is after Syn for damaging political information he acquired as a child. Syn has been running his whole life from one thing or another, but he is still a good man working with Nykyrian helping people. Shahara takes on Syn's bounty contract. Trouble ensues.. action, sparks, romance and a sturdy plot. I love Syn, i think he is funny as hell. I reccomend this novel!

Below standards Dec 1 2009
By MMP - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
If you are a fan of Born of Night this book has little to resemble that well made novel. Sure you have two tortured souls who find each other and heal their wounds...etc. Again like the first we have a female,Shay, who thinks the worst of our Hero Syn. Here is where the problem begins Spoiler alert!!! When Syn pays for the sister's hospital bill, and Shay finds out that Syn is the mystery friend of both of her siblings for years AFTER Shay delivers Syn to prison to be beaten and sexually probed...that may be the time I would be the time any normal person with an IQ over 72 would step back and re evaluate the situation! NOT Shay! She makes another agreement to break Syn out of prision and retrieve vital info for a corrupt prison official and bring both Syn and info back! That isn't even HUMAN!!!There is no redemption from that! Through the whole book Syn comes across people (nuns and 300 orphans,family including Shays,homeless etc) that bear witness to the good deeds and honerable person Syn is only for Shy to continue to question him and plot against him. For myself I never made a connection with Shay and in the end she never deserved Syn. To turn a man that has shown nothing but compassion, honor and integrity not once but twice to a system that violated him to an inch of his life...Shay deserves her own personal cell in that prision.
Vic was totally not necessary. This character is a hanger on aka side kick! For the last half of the book you had a little robot flying around in and out of scenes making comments...It just wasn't necessary. At the very front of Born of Fire the author writes how this story came about and taking that information into consideration I hope this book is what she wanted. I just couldn't over come the stupidity & back stabbing of Shay. Even the authors attempt to interject Syn's mother and Undo the Drowning...Come on! BORN of ICE! I read the first part of this book and Why of all character's and possibilities did she have to go here! I'm quiting this series now. Hey Born of Night was a brilliant book that I highly recommend and will keep for my personal library. I'm not even loaning my copy out. Get your own.

super romantic fantasy Nov. 10 2009
By Harriet Klausner - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
With the deaths of their parents, as the oldest Sharara "Shay" Dagan takes responsibility for her two younger sisters and brother. She has fed them and put roof over their heads by being a free-tracer bounty hunter. However, with bills still to pay and her sibling Tessa hospitalized, she needs to make money fast or the government will refuse medical treatment. She accepts a contact to bring in accused rapist killer C.I. Syn, a friend of her sister Caillen. They know each other and he has been kind to her family, but a job brings in needed cash.

Shay pursues Syn as only she can. He is on the lam struggling with the betrayal by his wife and his son and knows his pursuer is a legend in bringing in criminals. However, when Shay catches up to Syn, she fears her attraction to him may be coloring her belief he is innocent; but she prays she is right because she is taking a chance that could harm her sister.

The second Ichidian Universe League futuristic fantasy romance (see Born of Night) focuses on two people who know each other, but his past has made him a semi-loner as expected of an assassin while she remains responsible for her siblings. Fans will enjoy this rewriting of an e-book as this is the ultimate cat and mouse gender war between a take no prisoners tracer and an assassin felon as only Sherrilyn Kenyon can describe.

A Little Disturbing Dec 27 2010
By bearboo2 - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I always try to read at least the first 2 books to judge a series. Book 1 was a strongstart to a new series and the character of Syn was interesting enough for me to want to see how his story played out in the 2nd book.

However, while the character of Syn was fully developed, it was a little disturbing and a little overkill (how many stories of his abusive childhoo do we really need to read) and all we ever really found out about the lead female character, Shahara, is that she is a rigid killer who sees the world in black and white. Therefore, how Syn could possibly want any kind of relationship with her does not make any sense. Then, Bam! the conclusion is rushed and crammed into the last 2 chapters.

I am a huge fan of Kenyon's Dark Hunter series so a little disappointed this series is not quite up to par with the DH books. This is really more of a science fiction book than a paranormal romance.However, very enjoyable series so far.

Boring.... Nov. 11 2009
By Southern Belle - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Let me start by saying I love SK's Dark Hunter series and have read almost all of her books. I was excited about this new series, but it has been ho-hum to say the least. Book one had a lot more action and kept my interest - I wish I could say the same about book 2. The beginning started out interesting enough with plenty of action, but the middle of the book drags on and on and on. I have put it down and picked it up multiple times hoping it will get better, but it doesn't - at least for me, it did not. While I realize this is a sci-fi/futuristic setting, I can't get past the flying robot named "Vic" whom Syn created when he was a kid. The way SK describes it reminds me of the flying metal owl in the movie Clash of the Titans (early 80's)... was this one of SK's early or first series that wasn't published until now? For some reason, I get that impression or maybe I read it in a blog. None-the-less, the writing seems "juvenile" for lack of better description. Anyway, I can't recommend this book, sorry. I will probably pick up the 3rd book in December just to finish the series - I hope it is a better read then book 2.
