Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine,
spotlighting upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
Raina’s pick this week:
Born of Fury
by Sherrilyn Kenyon
The League Gen 1 #6
Expected publication: June 1st, 2014 by St. Martin’s Press
Genre: Paranormal Romance | Science Fiction
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
Why I’m waiting:
I’ve just finished the first five books in the series, and holy alien babies, were they fantastic! Each book has gotten better than the last. I love that, while each book focuses on a romantic pair, all the couples from the previous books make vital appearances in the next, adding more depth to this brotherhood of assassins and criminals while building on the subtle series arc that reached its pinnacle in the last two books. I cannot wait for the Sentella to scatter the League’s remains across the universe.
And I’ve been waiting so long for Hauk’s story, since book one actually. I’m so damn giddy for it, I’m tap dancing. Born of Fury will finally reveal what hurt the hulking Hauk so much to dislike women, and he will, hopefully, meet his match.
If you’re a fan of dark, action-packed paranormal romance, a little bit of science fiction, and some steamy sex but have yet to start The League Gen 1 series, you must! It’s one of my favs.
