Now decades later, everything has changed. He’s built a new life out of the ashes of his old, and he’s vowed to never let anything threaten his loved ones again.
But when old enemies align themselves with new ones, he’s caught in the middle of a brutal war. And when fate throws his former fiancée back into his world and she has her own agenda that includes taking his head for what he did to her years ago, more than just his life is at stake. The fate of the Ichidian universe and that of his brothers-in-arms hangs in the balance. Winner take all.
It’s killed or be killed, and never has the battle been more fierce…
Or more fun.
Fain not only sacrificed his own future when he ended his bonding to Galene all those years ago, but unknown to Fain, he also left her pregnant and unwanted by her own family. The Andarians are a harsh race with strict codes and yet Galene found the strength to pursue her career whilst raising Talyn single handedly. They say love and hate are two sides of the same coin and if that is true, then I wouldn't want to be Fain if he ever meets the woman he scorned; but you guessed it, pain is about to keep coming Fain’s way!
Galene has earned her role as commander of the alliance forces but it's felt she will need help negotiating with some factions. Well who should show up but the one male Galene would happily kill, but with war knocking at the door it's time to suck it up and come out on top. Working together means they must both confront the past but there is an insidious presence targeting them, determined to aid the League. As old enemies rise up, it's time for the Sentella to start a head count as it looks like more and more of them are about to lose that which matters the most!
Wow, The League Series is like a juggernaut that just keeps rolling! With so many characters and in this instalment we get to see them standing side by side. I won't say too much obviously, but for me, even though I wanted the idea of a happy ending for Fain and Galene, it felt just a tad too quick. However Born of Betrayal is not just about the couple,it is taking this series in a whole new direction.
Ms Kenyon loves to torment her heroes but she also enjoys messing with the reader's head and THEN, she tries to see if she can make the villain a hero! Expect twists and unexpected allies but be prepared to roll your eyes occasionally.
Second chance romance seems to take a slight back seat here, but what's truly fabulous is seeing Fain connect with Talyn. I've been waiting for Nero since the first book and the author doesn't disappoint as yes, he is here but what is revealed has me salivating not just for his book but also a new character. What can I say? If you love this series, then Born of Betrayal should not be missed!
