Born of Legend
Hunted. Hated. Betrayed. Outcast Dagger Ixur is on the run for his life. As one of the most recognizable members of his royal house, he has a bounty on his head that guarantees him no quarter from any friend or even family. But surrender isn’t in him. He will fight to the bitter end. A resolve that is sore ...more
More lists with this book...
I was very surprised when I realised that the hero is Julian as he is one of the most hated and reviled characters in the series. The things he has done to his twin brother Nyk and others who were at school with him just begged belief and yet the au ...more
This is my first book review ever, but I seriously felt the need to write one since this book is AMAZINGLY BREATHTAKING !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I honestly was looking forward to reading this book especially since Jullien has always been one of those characters I totally despised. Then BAM , I read the first chapter in this book and I'm a goner.
One important thing worth mentioning is that this is the first time I don't have a love-hate relationship with the female heroin. I love Ushara ,and...more
This is usually the part of the review where I give a blurb...but, this is book 11 (or book 9, depending on where you look, if you understand this, please let me know 'cos I don't get it!) I am not going to go into an in depth blurb. I'm pretty sure if you have got this far you don't need one. If you are new to this series don't bother reading any further, this is a series you need to read in order, so check out my review of the first book instead Born of Night.
So back on track, Born of Legend
That said, here are the reasons I gave Born of Legend 3 stars instead of 5:
* The story covers roughly fives years and the transitions are horrible. There are literally points where you stop and say "wait, what?" because time jumps - particularly the last third of the story.
* The editing is mediocre at best. There are sentences that stop you because they are so awkwardly written o ...more
********************BEWARE SPOILERS AHEAD******************
Maybe not extreme spoilers but things of definite note.
Born of Legend is Book 9 in the amazing Sherrilyn Kenyon's League Series. In many ways it has leap frogged to the top of my favorite Kenyon Series. Maybe because it remains true to the beginning.. and maybe because it's just that good.
We all know you can't have a Kenyon hero without him having a tortured soul, it's j ...more
You can't help but draw parallels between Jullien and Styxx from The Dark-Hunter series. In both cases Kenyon did an amazing job of adding depth and perspective to two of some the most ...more
You would assume the book would start with when Jullien was just a child but it didn't. Rather we see glimpses of it and through Jullien's mind. From everything we learned from Born of Betrayal about him, Jullien is not someone who we thought he was but a different being. Running for his life after his grandmother put a Thrill-kill on him and exiled from his kingdo ...more

My favorite parts were his time with his Tavali family. Ushara is such an amazing woman ...more
Nice to be able to read a story about Jullien. He did not have the good life I thought he did. Glad he finally got his revenge against his grandmother. Also glad that his other family members were finally able to hear the truth. Hope he will be able to have a long and happy life with Ushara. Wonder when the war will start.
Can't wait to read Born of Vengeance!!!!
Dagger was an awesome hero, striving to be more than his past and do right by those he had harmed. I loved how Ushara accepted him through his current actions and not his past! The twists and turns that the story took was amazing, and the fact that Dagger had to save his birth family, but ended up not reconciling with ...more
Gosh, how much I love this series. The characters and worldbuilding are amazing and it keeps me going even if there are parts I don't like that much in it. (the unecessary amount of dramatic scenes and violence etc.)
This book is the example how a good plot and writing can make you like a character you hated basically in 8 and a half books. I never thought I would like Jules. Ever. And yet...
Please, now let us find more about the Trisani people and Nero. I'm waiting for his book for year ...more
