Born of Ice

The League Series - Book 3

By Sherrilyn Kenyon

St. Martin's - December 2009

This review assumes that the reader has read Born of Night and Born of Fire and does have spoilers. In many ways, this book stands on its own. However, for those of us who have read the previous books, there are several unanswered questions regarding characters that make me feel as if I missed several stories. These are potential "spoilers" for stories not yet published, but will probably be set before this story. So, even though Born of Ice is currently book 3 in the series, it may change to a higher number as more stories are published.

Devyn Kell had worked for the League, until the decision to save a child made him a traitor. Now he and his crew work on the outskirts of the law, using the skills taught to them by their legendary parents. Sheer nerve, amazing skills, and friends and family in all the right places keeps him one step ahead of his enemies. Until he needs a new engineer, and the enemy comes on board.

Traumatic memories of living on her father's ship make Alix Garran worry about the all male crew on Devyn's ship. In order to save her family, Alix agrees to find evidence against Devyn and turn it in. It doesn't matter if it is factual, or fictional. But as she gets to know him and his crew, Alix realizes that only she is the enemy.

Born of Ice is another thrilling addition to the League series. Alix was a poignant heroine, having no choice but to betray Devyn. Her past makes her distrustful, but the crew's care and acceptance makes her conflicted. I adored Devyn, yet another perfect hero. Each member of the crew and their friends are unique, and screaming for their own stories to be told.

Reviewer's note: My only problem with this story, and this generation of characters: Why when there were so many problems with the League in books 1 and 2, does anyone work for them? From the moment I read the blurb, to even now, I just don't get it.
