I actually had two choices for pick of the week. I was torn between Born of Fury by Sherrilyn Kenyon and Sinner by Maggie Stiefvater. I am way, way behind on Kenyon’s The League series (yep, story of my life), but I have really liked all of them I have read. And Sinner? Well, my history with the Shiver series is iffy, but Cole was the best part of it for me. To say that Forever left things unresolved is a monster understatement, and I have hope that some of those questions will get resolved in Sinner. But, after much debate, my pick of the week is going to be Born of Fury.
The war is on…
Counted among the fiercest Andarion warriors ever born, Hauk is one of the five founding members of the Sentella- an organization that has declared war on the League that rules the Ichidian universe with an iron fist and terrifies it with an army of well-trained assassins. Hauk’s enemies are legion, but he fears nothing and no one. He will do whatever it takes to survive and protect his Sentella brethren.
Sumi Antaxas is one of the best assassins the League has ever trained. In her world, failure is not an option and she has never met a target she couldn’t execute. So when she’s assigned Hauk, she believes it’ll be a quick and easy mission.
But nothing is ever as simple as it seems, and Hauk is far better trained and skilled than his dossier shows. More than that, as she pursues him, she stumbles upon the key that will bring down not only Hauk, but the entire Sentella organization.
In the race to report her information, she is overtaken by enemies out to end her as effectively as she intends to end Hauk. Now her only key to survival is the one man she’s been sent to kill. And Hauk doesn’t trust her at all.
The only question is, will he help her to live… or send her to her grave?
