Publisher's Summary

"It's official Take a Psycho to Work Day. Why else would I be here?"
Hunted. Hated. Betrayed. 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 sorely tested when he narrowly escapes a trap that leaves him severely wounded. With what he believes is his dying breath, he saves a boy born to an extinct race from a group out to enslave the kid for his legendary abilities.
Ushara Altaan has spent her entire life hating those born to nobility. After all, it was a royal house that drove her entire species into virtual extinction. As a rare Andarion Fyreblood, she is sworn to end the existence of any royal she finds. But when Dagger saves her son's life, she is torn between her people and a debt that can never be repaid.
Yet worse than Dagger's family that's still out to end hers, are the League assassins after him who will stop at nothing to claim the lives of her Tavali family. The only hope she has to save them all is to put their future and her faith into the hands of the very enemy whose grandmother personally extinguished Ushara's legendary lineage. But in Born of Legend, how can she ever trust Dagger when he is a disinherited outlaw whose very name is synonymous with betrayal?

Neglected boy runs, falls in love with widow, turns into perfect father, redeems himself and finds meaning of family.

This book follows the League series, its best if you know about the universe if the League. It doesn't directly follow the last book but rather we see Julian's journey through his eyes and then catch up to the current story. It was a five year span, maybe more and we see glimpse of the other league stories as an outsider. There are also a lot of childhood flashbacks seen in his perspective. Who knew Julian would be the perfect father?

I never thought I'd like Julian but I did. I actually like his personality more than his twin after this book. He is more flawed and accepts his sins. He is not nearly as arrogant as what was previously portrayed. I want to know more about the Tavali. I will continue this series.

The only flaw is that there are a lot of characters so if you haven't read/listen to the other books then you will get lost.

I enjoyed the narrater, his voice is easily believable as many characters. I fall into the story because of how believable the conversations are. That is due inpart to the great writing but also to the character transitions by the narrator. I will probably listen to ths audiobook over and over. Sherrilyn Kenyon is one of my favorite writers of all time and I feel good about using one of my audible credits for this book.

Long Story ~ Amazing and Well Worth it!

Wow! What a long story but oh, so worth it! Sherlyn Kenyon is one of my all time favorite authors!! I can never get enough of her stories. She has such a talent for writing a story about a character who was previously disliked in past stories, and turning that character completely around. Each book tells the story of a character, who's had a horrible past, and it pulls on your heartstrings, and you actually feel empathy for them! It's sad when you have to remind yourself, it's only a character.

Julian's story did not disappoint! The plot and characters were both captivating, and well developed. It had everything I've come to love about the League series, and the perfect balance between romance, action, sarcasm and dry humor. Well worth the late nights, and the lack of sleep!

Fred Berman delivers another AWESOME performance! He narrates with such passion, and intensity you can hear, and feel the different emotions throughout the story! He does a Fantastic job bringing both the story and characters to life.

Worth a credit? Absolutely!! Especially for any Kenyon Menyon fan!
