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" by Sherrilyn Kenyon. Book 2 in The League series. I read this book in July 2016. This was my review. Loved this book! A great addition to The League series. I enjoyed it so much. Syn and Shahara are two characters that are just great together. Ms. Kenyon writes characters with such horrible backgrounds but yet they always turn out to be so loyal and loving. If you have not read the first book in the series, that's ok. This book works just as well as a stand alone. There's an author's note in the beginning of this book saying the time line is off from the first book. I read the first book and you actually don't even notice the difference in the time line. This book's time line is just longer than what you would expect from the first book. Syn has been betrayed by a woman before and has vowed never to fall for a woman again. Until he meets Shahara. Two problems though...Shahara is his best friend's sister and she's trying to arrest him. He's a no good filch and she upholds the law. A relationship would never work between them. Shahara has no choice but to arrest Syn. She needs the money to save her sister. But now she's being blackmailed to find information that Syn has and all her financial worries will be over. But when she starts to learn more about Syn's past, things are not so black-and-white anymore. Syn's a much more complicated person than she thought. I really enjoyed the story line in this book. A lot of action scenes mixed with just enough humour to keep this book from being to dark. The romance is not "hard core" romance, it simmers throughout the book, more of a teasing romance with a satisfying ending. A romance you would never think would work but it does. I thoroughly enjoyed it and can't wait to start the next book.
