5/5 Review: Born of Defiance by Sherrilyn Kenyon



Born an Outcast, Talyn Batur has spent the whole of his life fighting against the prejudice of his people. An Andarion without a father is not something anyone wants to be.
But when his companion's brother draws him into a plot against the Andarion crown, he finds himself torn between the loyalty to their planetary government that his mother has beaten into him and his own beliefs of justice and right.
Now, he must decide for himself to remain a pawn of their government or to defy everything and everyone he's ever known to stand up to tyranny. It's a gamble that will either save his life or end it. And when old enemies align with new ones, it's more than just his own life at risk. And more than just his homeworld that will end should he fail, in Born of Defiance, the next League novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Sherrilyn Kenyon.

**********

It seems like only yesterday when I read my first book from the legendary, Sherrilyn Kenyon.  She has never failed to keep her fans entertained, frustrated and happy all at the same time, an amazing author.

Born of Defiance has major Mr sexy aka Tayln Batur as our hero and the beautiful Felicity that is his soul mate.   Tayln has had to fight for everything he has in life, born to live such a hard life but he shows his true character by always being the honourable soldier.  He believes in his morals and will do everything he can to do the right thing.  He could easily have been a cold hearted thug but instead chose to cherish the love for his mother and vice versa to hold him firm to what matters most.  He has struggled through life and been content with what was given to him.  When Felicity enters his world that all changes.  Forever the solider with morals he now knows there is one person in this world that he would be willingly die for and he will do everything to protect her.  Felicity hasn't lived a glamorous life either but when she meets the sexy Talyn she believes her world is complete.  She has 100% faith in him and like him, she is willing to do anything for him.

I love their story, its a gentle love story that compels you to love everything about both of them.  I also loved the other characters that got to return, even for a few moments.  Born of Defiance allows us to go back in time and remember our old favourites.  We are allowed a few small glimpses of the "old crew" that satisfies your wishes but has you racing to the next page to see what happens next.  This book held surprises for everyone.  I was waiting for Tayln's father to come into the book and for questions to be answered but in true style we were greeted with more questions instead.

Born of Defiance is the 9th book in the League series and I can say without a doubt that she has yet again produced a wonderful story.  Although the book gives us a lot of questions, I have the faith in Sherrilyn that she will fill us in with the missing links in her next book, Betrayal that I cant wait to be released.  Do yourself a favour and grab this book today for an evening of soaking in the memorable story of Tayln and Felicity.
