In a universe where assassins make the law, everyone lives in fear-except for Syn. Born of an illicit scandal that once rocked a dynasty, he always knew how to survive on the bloodthirsty streets. But that was then, and the future is now.

Syn was raised as a tech-thief until his livelihood uncovered a truth that could end his life. He tried to destroy the evidence, and has been on the run ever since. Now trained as an assassin, he allows no one to threaten him. Ever. He is the darkness that swallows his enemies whole.

Shahara Dagan is the best bounty hunter in the universe. When Syn comes back on the radar, she's the only one who can bring him to justice. There's only one problem: Syn is a close family friend who's helped out the Dagans countless times. But if she saves him, both of their lives will be on the line. Is Syn's protection worth the risk? The only hope Shahara has is to find the evidence he buried long ago. Now it's kill or be killed-and they, the predators, have just become the hunted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Born Of Fire I love Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter Series and wanted to give this series a try and I was not disappointed. This series is as good as Dark Hunter series. I love them both (Dark Hunter little bit more then this one) and highly recommend them both.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Depth of character The sheer depth of character is truly astounding. After reading the first I wanted more of nyk but syn' s story draws you in just as nyk and takes you on an adventure of a lifetime. Worth every minute.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It’s getting hot in here. It’s getting hot in here. This is the second book in Sherrilyn Kenyon’s The League books. This one follows Syn who has had a rough life. Growing up his father beat him and his life was a mess. He grew up and became an assassin, a pretty good one at that. He works for his friend- one of his only friends- as he is tech savvy. He knows his way around anything to do with a computer, which makes him a menace to anyone who pisses him off, plus he’s good at killing people. Shahara Dagan is one of the most fierce bounty hunters around. She is put in a position that she has to find someone because her sister becomes hurt and Syn comes right up on the radar. Though he’s a friend of her brother and her sister. She has to go after him anyway because she needs the money and she needs it now to save her sister. She catches him, though not without a fight, he talks her into letting him go and dropping the order against him. She does though double crosses him. Syn pays for her sisters hospital stay though he gets caught. Now that Shahara knows the truth she and Syn have to find something that was hidden long ago, and if she doesn’t she’ll get killed. I liked this one better because the action in it was better. Syn was clever and witty and Shahara was the same way. This book doesn’t stop, it keeps jumping till the very end hoping that there’s more. You see the difference in Syn in this one compared to the first one, plus you see the past and why Syn and Shahara do what they do. This book is better then the first one a it’s worth a four

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Couldn't put it down Syn's book was as fast paced as Nyk's book. Wished there was more on the characters introduced in the first (Nyk and Syn's friends). Lots of action.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Addicting Syn has lived a hard life and trust no one. He has everyone out to get him, dead or alive.

Shahara is the best bounty hunter and needs a high paying job, which happens to be bringing in Syn. Things don't go quite according to plan and is on the run with him. She starts to learn that he is not the man that is described on his bounty sheet. Syn wants to believe in Shahara but his experience with his father and his ex-wife he doesn't think she will see beyond his past. While on the run from his enemies, both Syn and Shahara get to know each other and Syn begins to trust her as she get to know the real him, but will her betrayal be the end of him and of what they have between them.
