In BORN OF LEGEND we find a different man hiding behind who
we think is Dagger. Born to the royal house as Jullien he
grew up unloved and lived a painful life. Leaving that world
behind and he is now on the run and in hiding but Dagger is
ready to fight until he has nothing left to give and that is
what it looks like it has come to. Not caring if this is the
end Dagger saves the life of a young boy from a race his
Grandmother tried to extinguish. When Ushara the young boys
mother finds them things begin to take a different turn in
Dagger's life. Can the two find equal ground and learn to
trust one another? Where does Dagger's loyalties lay now?
Can he truly find a new life and find that happiness that
has always eluded him?
Jullien has gone through so mush in his life and continues
to deal with it. When he saved Ushara's son we begin to see
the true person he is. His life is full of hate and death
and when friendship and love come into Jullien's life he is
more than just thankful. I enjoyed seeing Jullien finally
find something good to live for. In this book we get to see
what he has hidden and who he truly is now. He has turned
his life around and is more than ready to fight for what he
has now. Ushara is a strong woman and a good match for
Jullien. In enjoyed watching their relationship build, It
was nice to see Jullien find himself and prove to everyone
that he is so much more than what they think and tries to
leave his past behind him. Jullien grabs for the love and
happiness in front of him.
Jullien's story is a long and hard fought adventure. Through
it all we see the pain he endures and the love he finally
finds and fights for. Reading his story quickly endeared
Jullien to this reader and I loved Ushara for seeing the man
he has become. I am glad we got to see him find something
worth fighting for. We are given the other side of the story
; his side and it proves that you should never judge a
person before hearing the whole story. Not only did I enjoy
Ushara and Jullien but many of the supporting characters
made themselves known and I hope that they get their stories
told as well.
Sherrilyn Kenyon weaves a wonderful story in BORN OF
LEGEND. I was quickly immersed in Jullien and Ushara's story
and kept turning the pages to see just what would happen
next. Trust and love are hard to come by and these two are
more than willing to fight for them.

Hunted. Hated. Betrayed. Dagger Ixur is on the run for his
life. As one of the most recognizable members of his royal
house, he has a bounty on his head that guarantees him no
quarter from any friend or even family. But surrender isnâ€™t
in him. He will fight to the bitter end. A resolve that is
sorely tested when he narrowly escapes a trap that leaves
him severely wounded. With what he believes is his dying
breath, he saves a boy born to an extinct race from a group
out to enslave the kid for his legendary abilities.
Ushara Altaan has spent her entire life hating those born to
nobility. After all, it was a royal house that drove her
entire species into virtual extinction. As a rare Andarion
Fyreblood, she is sworn to end the existence of any royal
she finds. But when Dagger saves her sonâ€™s life, she is torn
between her people and a debt that can never be repaid.
Yet worse than Daggerâ€™s family thatâ€™s still out to end hers,
are the League assassins after him who will stop at nothing
to claim the lives of her Tavali family. The only hope she
has to save them all is to put their future and her faith
into the hands of the very enemy whose grandmother
personally extinguished Usharaâ€™s legendary lineage. But how
can she ever trust Dagger when he is a disinherited outlaw
whose very name is synonymous with betrayal?
