Born of Shadows is book #5 in the League series. I recommend that you read the books in order to really enjoy it. That way you'll have a better understanding on who's who, and what's going on. Born of Shadows is about Caillen Dagan & Desideria Denarii. Caillen finds himself in prison awaiting his death when surprise, surprise he finds out something about himself that he never knew. (to find out what that is you must read the book. Evil, I know) Desideria her mothers guard overhears a plot to kill her mother. Before she can stop them from killing her mother, she runs into assassins that try to kill her. Caillen comes to her rescue but ends up landing them in a escape pod. While they are fighting for their lives they learn that Caillen is wanted for killing Desideria, her mother and his father. They work together to clear both their names. You'll love this series if you haven't read it yet. Kenyon writes it with such passion. She includes ton of humor, love and friendship. It's a must read. Happy reading!
