53) Born of Ice by Sherrilyn Kenyon

In the Ichidian Universe it is the League and its ruthless assassins who rule over all. Devyn Kell thought that being in service to the League was a good thing until he realised that they were happier to kill then save. Going against them he is now someone who makes sure planets get the weapons, medicine and supplies they need to get through another day. He doesn't take no for an answer and he gets what he wants.

Alix Garran hasn't had a good life so far and her future isn't looking so good either. Forced to sign on to work for Devyn as a System’s Engineer, she is surprised to find he isn't what she expected. He is someone she can respect, trust and most of all fall in love with. So Alix’s mission to save her family becomes harder and harder to achieve and suddenly Devyn finds himself with some old enemies on his tail. Will they both be able to fight together or will they both die alone.

This third and I believe last book in the League series was just as good as the previous two books. I quickly got used to the League world again and managed to pick up on who was who. This third book revolves around the son of the characters from book one and also has quite a few characters from book two. All in all this is basically a book that ties up all the loose ends but could also stand alone like the other two books.

Anyone who enjoys the Dark-Hunter series, also by Sherrilyn Kenyon, will also appreciate these three books. The concept is very similar in content but the setting is more futuristic and less complicated. I am not really a sci-fi fan when it comes to book reading but this trilogy was very exciting and it impressed me alot. Quite romance based it was fun to see how the author got this pair together. Sherrilyn Kenyon has a knack of basically writing the same plot of guy meets girl and lives happily ever after over and over again. However each time the story is magically unique and even more enjoyable than the last.

It is definitely worth picking up these books. Of course I would never have read them if it wasn't for the author behind them but now I wish there were a few more League books to entertain me. So with this League snack in between Dark-Hunter books now devoured I go back to patiently waiting for the next delight DH delight!
