Born of Fire is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.

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.
Born of Fire is the second book in bestselling author Sherrilyn Kenyon's League series.

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 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I love this new series and i hope there are more to come. Syn is a great lead in this story because his past is so terrible and yet he is a better man because of it. I would recomment this series to anyone wanting a great action-love story.

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. What he didn't expect was this beautiful bounty hunter to sneek up on him and change his life, she brings his worst enemy right to his door. 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.

Read from the Book

chapter 1 Hell had many interpretations. Syn knew that better than anyone. In his life, he’d managed to live through most of the common variations and discover a multi­tude of new ones. Why was it every time he thought he had life tamed, the treacherous beast turned around and bit him on the ass? Cocking his head, he detected the sound of footsteps on the wet pavement behind him as he walked toward the bay where he’d docked his fighter. Anger scorched him. He slid his hand closer to his concealed weapons. He’d been stalked enough times in his life to recognize the sound of someone trailing him while trying to re­main inconspicuous. Tonight, he just  wasn’t in the mood to deal with it. Streetlights glinted against the drying puddles that splashed beneath his boots. Steam hissed an escape from boilers and chimneys, adding an eeriness to the otherwise quiet night. Unless he missed his guess, which he never did, six men were behind him. Only Syn and the six of them walked down the street at this late hour—another fac­tor that told him whoever it was wanted one thing— Him. “Come get some,” he muttered, unable to find an ounce of patience for anyone stupid enough to try and kill him. What little patience he possessed had ended hours ago. You just made a bad mistake, boys. I definitely wouldn’t want to be you. ’Cause tonight, he wanted blood without being par­ticular as to whom he took it from. They were defi ­nitely in the wrong place at the wrong time.
