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

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 New Favorite Jan. 26 2012
By Bryonna - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Let me start out by saying if you read "Born of Night" and "Born of Fire" back to back, please be sure to read the author's note at the beginning of these books. Especially "Born of Fire". If not, you might end up being a tad bit annoyed. I read the note and so I went in prepared for the deviations.

I have never felt as connected to a character as I did Shahara who is our heroine in this book. Growing up poor, I know what its like to look at something you want so badly but you can't afford it. I also know what its like to have to be the responsible one and not want to show weakness. I sadly don't have the closeness she did with her siblings but ever emotion Shahara felt throughout this story I felt right along with her deeper than I ever had a character before.

I hurt for Syn and his story. He may have actually become one of my most favorite heroes that Kenyon's ever written. I love Acheron, Vane, Zarek, Fang and tons of the others but I think Syn will always have a special place in my heart.

I don't know why, as I said before, I'm not a big SciFi fan but this one is definitely on my favorites list. Even as I hurried to see how the book ended, at the same time, I was sad when I did reach that conclusion. I wanted more. The true sign of a good story.

I didn't go into this series thinking I'd be dying for the next installment as I had her other books but I find myself pleasantly surprised. Next time I see Sherrilyn Kenyon, likely during Dragon*con, I will be taking Born of Fire because this is a book I definitely want signed.

Five Stars. Not to sound cliche but I laughed and cried and all at the right moments. There were even times I held my breath. This is a book worthy of your shelf.

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.
