I loved and I mean loved the first two books in the League series. Born of Ice was no exception. I really enjoyed this one and boy did I fly through it. It is tiny compared to the other books. So small that I flew through it in one afternoon.

This story centres around Alix and Devyn. I liked them both, but I'm sorry as a couple I liked Syn and Shahara so much more.They were just way more likeable and sweet together. But enough of them. Let's get back to you. (view spoiler)...more
4.5 stars

Born of Ice was another great addition to The League series. The story is set nearly 20 years after the previous book Born of Fire which was disappointing as I wanted to hear the story of Darling, Dancer and the other first gen team. However, the first gen characters are still featured throughout this book. Also, we are introduced to a cast of memorable characters who are sure to be great heroes / heroines in future releases.

As for our current hero and heroine, Devyn and Alix… the circ...more

Sci-fi mood sci-fi mood *dances*

But… it still wasn’t what I wanted. Dammit it’s difficult to find a good sci-fi romance full of action, adventure, drama and emotional moments and less on thoughts about how hot the dude you’re drooling is. Yes Alix, that’s you.
“You want me to reset the machine?”
No. I want to ride you until you’re begging me for mercy. Clearing her throat, she tried to shove that image out of her mind.

The third books in The League Series and supremely awesome. This installment features Devyn, Syn and Shahara's (Born of Fire) son. I, personally, think that, after Born of Fire, this book is the next best in the series, with Born of Night coming in third. Many new characters were introduced in this novel (Hello, most Nykyrian and Kiara's kids). I don't wanna give away anything from the book, so I'm just gonna stick with saying that this book is fantastic and I haven't stopped thinking about it s...more

Even on her worst day, I can't dislike a Sherrilyn Kenyon book. Admittedly, this is my least favorite installment in the League series, but I still enjoyed it. Kenyon hit the fast-forward button, focusing this third book on the children of our core characters in Born of Night and Born of Fire . Our hero is Devyn, son of Sin and Sharhara. He is the captain of a runner-ship and a doctor, like his father. He tried working with the League, but his ethics got in the way, so now he spends most of his...more
3.5/4 stars. Wow, there was more than a 20 year time jump between the last book and this book. While I did enjoy reading about the next generation, I wasn't quite finished with the first generation. I wanted to know what became of the rest of the members of the original Sentella that we met in book 1. Sure we can go back, but it would have been nice to get all the old stories before getting the new stories. Now I already know that they have kids and that their kids and that the kids grew up toge...more
Born of Ice tells the story of Devyn Kell former League soldier and civilian Alix Garran. Devyn is always one step ahead of The League. While Alix, is sent to bring him in alive in order to save her family. With the past and their enemies catching up to them, they'll have to stick together if they want to survive.

This is the third installment in The League series. On first seeing and hearing Devyn, Alix is mesmerized by him. She is at a total loss for words at his yumminess. Devyn is likewise at...more

This was a fantastic series.
I don't want to give anything away on this last book, because it will spoil too much of the first two books.
All I can say is that SK has outdone herself. How she could come up with yer another GREAT series after the Dark/Dream Hunter series, I'll never know. But thank you SK for all you give to the PNR books.

A great read...

This is the third book in Sherrilyn Kenyon's League series, but there are some definite changes this time around.

When I read the synopsis, I couldn't remember who Devyn Wade Kell was. I figured it must be a cousin or something of Syn's. I was more than a little surprised to realize that this book actually featured the next generation. Devyn is the only child of Syn and Shahara, and he got the best of both of them. With his father's skills and determination, and his mother's toughness, Devyn is...more
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...more

This book was WAY BETTER than what I thought it would be.

In this installment we get to read about Syn & Shahara's son: Devyn Wade Kell. I must admit I thought I would hate this book because it wasn't about one of the characters we already knew. I was extremely frustrated about this because I really got to LOVE all the characters we have been introduced to before this book and I wanted to read their HEA before going to new characters we haven't met yet. Also I thought that as Devyn was much...more
This was a fun book, but definitely had a different feel from the other two. When I first started to read I was confused because it didn't seem like there were any characters in common and these were just random new people. But once I realized that the series was on to the next generation it got very interesting, especially as all the old people started to pop in along with the kids and you saw how the original group of friends stayed really close, their kids growing up like siblings to each oth...more
I’d give 2 stars only, and even this rating seemed high. However, since I was able to finish it, I thought it probably deserved a 2.

This book is instalment #3 in the League series, taking place (my guess) 30 or so years after the events of book #2 (which portrayed Syn and Shahara). In this book, Devyn, the son of the legendary Sentella member and expert hacker Syn, took centre stage. Devyn had it all – not only was he the son of Syn and Shahara, he was well-trained in almost everything that his...more
Samantha (Book Lover's Cozy Cafe)
this book was so far the best of the series like people have said. I love it how it was Shay and Syn's son... took me a sec to realize it. But loved the concept of it being so many years later than the last book, instead of the typical ok this one of this set of people is going to be next to find their love and happiness. Instead its the son of said people. But the minute I picked up and settled down to read it I was hooked I couldn't put it down until I was done and though I was sick, and had a...more

The ending of this was awesome...saved by mom and dad. he he
No really, though, this was my favorite in the series but only barely, since the other 2 were very very good. I liked how the deception was discovered and moved outta the way so they could move on quickly, rather than waiting til the end to find out Alix was supposed to frame Devyn. I loved Shahara and all the kids and cousins coming outta the woodwork. It was really hard to see Paden as a good guy, but I'm glad he redeemed himself :) a...more

Another 5 star read for me by Kenyon! The League 2nd Generation does not disappoint! I loved that this story was about Syn's son! I listened to this on audio and I loved it.
Excellant book! Sherrilyn Kenyon writes a great Sci-Fi series. Doesn't mean I am now a Sc-Fi Romance fan, I just like the way SK writes Sci-Fi.

OMG- The Sentella: The Next Generation!
Nyk & Syn's children are adults and following in their infamous parents footsteps giving a whiff of deja vu throughout the read. Because the escapades center on Devyn (son of Syn) and features 3 of Nyk's children that whiff strengthens.
From the outset when Devyn is disillusioned by The League and comes up with his own method of resigning his commission, I was hooked on this read (and came quite close to finishing in one sitting). D...more
After reading Born of Fire I really didn't know what to expect from Born of Ice. I was expecting something amazing to say the least and that's exactly what you get. Born in Ice is set 30 years after Born of Fire, Devyn Kell is the son of Syn and Shahara. He spent his life in service to the League as a medic until he couldn't take the double dealing and backstabbing that was costing innocent people their lives. Dev got out of the League and became a Runner, someone who delivers weapons, medicine...more

When I first started to read this book it sounded very familiar to the League 2, Born of Fire. I was disappointed the first 30 pages or so because I was thinking it's the same story as book 2 for the exception it's twenty something years later. But I'm glad the book turned into a story I very much enjoyed with a few twists and turns.

Devyn, is a man on a mission to save those who are less fortunate. He spends his time in space helping children who have no voice against the harsh world(s) they li...more
Gah, I love this series so much! Kenyon turned it in a completely new direction here by moving the story forward 20 years and focusing on the original crew's children. It was so much fun to see all of Nykyrian and Kiara's children grown up, and Syn and Shahara's son Devyn is the hero of this novel. It doesn't stop there, though, because we also see the children of other crew members, as well as Nero again. This move has given us a host of new characters that we all want to see with a HEA, and I...more
You guys know that I adore Sherrilyn Kenyon and those wacky characters she creates, right? I do. All those tormented Dark-Hunters do it for me. Then I picked up this series and I got all tangled up with Nykyrian and Syn. Those boys take tortured into a whole other realm. This book, though... I don't know. I never felt all heart-clenching, OMG!WHY?!?!? about it. I expected to (which is why- say it with me now- I try to go into books with no expectations) and, sure, Devyn has experienced deep betr...more
 ~*~Princess Nhya~*~
I liked this one a whole lot better than the second novel. I did like Devyn and Alix. And I like them together as well. I loved his son Omari and all of the new characters in this one. Since we are 20 years into the future, I did feel that this story could have been longer like the 1st 2 novels. Especially since we are being introduced to new people and what is going on now in this world 20 years later.

I felt like this story was really rushed. There was so much more that should have been said....more
Cristina (a book away from an episode of hoarders)
Here's the thing with Sherrilyn Kenyon books, for me at least. I find it difficult to put her books down until it's over. I become emotionally invested in the story and at the end, I'm so drained from the heartwrenching story that I find it difficult to think of anything else for a long time.

This, thankfully, was the shortest book in The League series that I have read. There was a few times where she tugged on your heart a bit but nothing like Born of Night (and Born of Fire) where it felt like...more
The Window Seat
Because of publishing issues, The League series is published out of order. But despite that, you can read them IN order. That makes this the second to last of the available League books, with only the novella Fire and Ice to follow.

Devyn Kell, despite his name, is the son of Syn and Sahara. In order to protect Devyn from their own pasts, they give him a name that can't be traced back to them. But as a result, no one knows who Dev is, or that they should be afraid of him. A medic to the League, D...more
Wan "The Snake Charmer"
Tho this was a quick read and much shorter than the first two books. I loved it nonetheless.

This was one of the books that featured tortured heroine, for a change. I have not come across many of these so it's a pleasant surprise. I love Alix and her character. She, as a slave, was written to be so vulnerable and adorable while Davyn was a pampered prince. Don’t get me wrong. He was still a tough hero but he came from a family that loved him.

One of the confusions I have was that, there were so m...more
