Publisher's Summary

In a universe where corruption and deception rule all aspects of life, sparks of rebellion threaten to ignite.
As the Resistance leader, Zarya Starska's only goal is to topple the government that destroyed her entire family and left her penniless. Her biggest asset is a mysterious man known only as Kere.
But Kere has a dark secret. Born into a world that is as privileged as it is corrupt, his real name is Darling Cruel - and he is heir to the government Zarya wants to overthrow. No one has ever seen the real man behind the legend - no one except Zarya. But when she allows a weapon he designed to be used against his beloved sister, all bets are off.
Betrayed by the Resistance, Darling's goal is not only to reign, but to kill every Resistance member he can find. Zarya must stop Darling's reign of terror, but can she reach past his insanity to restore the hero who once fought by her side?

Vintage Kenyon- Heart wrenching story

What did you love best about Born of Silence?

I adore Darling and absolutely love Maris. Even though this is Darling's main story, Maris is one of my favorites from this series, along with Callien and Chayden, and he was featured a lot in this book, for obvious reasons. The relationship between Darling and Maris never overshadows the relationship between Darling and Zarya, which was something I was worried about. Even though Maris's opinions and feelings are never in doubt, he never forces anything on anyone in the book. A true brother he is, regardless of the situation. Maris is the kind of man I'd want to endure hell with, or at the very least, have around when I was done with hell.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked Darling's character arc, even though it was hard to listen to, much like Acheron's. Even though we know he's had a very rough life, you constantly hope that someone protects him, but it doesn't happen until he's hit his breaking point and crashed into Crazyville. His unwavering commitment and love for his family is mirrored in Maris's care for him when he needs it, even though the care Darling needs is from a different character. As always, Ms. Kenyon rips out your heart but pieces it back together with a strong cast of characters that make you value the people you have in your life.

What does Holter Graham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He is the best narrater on the planet. Enough said.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Too many to mention, but I cried when Darling tried to protect Zarya's ring that she gave to him, and it was brutally taken from him. I don't usually cry, but I did for Darling and Maris in several spots of this book.

Any additional comments?

Have a new box of kleenex with you when you listen to this one, and don't listen to it in public for the first time. You don't want to be in Starbucks and people think you're crazy because you burst into tears as you order your coffee with your earbuds in. Yep- that happened to me.

A Whole New Level of Wow!

This is only my second book in this series. I jumped in to Born of Shadows because of Holter Graham, and loved it. But this book! This book was incredible. I don't believe in spoilers so I won't have much to say other than I lost a few nights sleep laying in bed watching this amazing movie in my head. Sherrilyn Kenyon is brilliant, and I'm going to start with the first book as soon as I finish the 6th.
