5 Kiss Review: Born of Silence (The League Nemesis Rising #5) by Sherrilyn Kenyon


Death Stalks Them All...
Kere is the second most infamous member of the shadow organization known as Sentella. An explosive engineer who strikes terror into the hearts of the League, the bounty on his head is truly staggering. No one knows his true identity.
The daughter of a traitor, Zarya Starska grew up hard on the back streets of hell- her family hunted to the brink of extinction. But Zarya dreams of a different life and a different world. A world where the harsh hand of the Caronese emperor doesn’t destroy his subjects. As a Resistance leader, her goal is to topple the government that needlessly ruined the lives of her family and comrades-in-arms. In this deadly quest, the only person she can trust is a mysterious man known only as Kere.
By The Light Of Day...

Kere has a dark secret and a brutal past. As he aids the Resistance, he’s actually working to bring down his own family- the Cruels- so named for the viciousness in their blood that runs so deep, no other name would do. Born and bred from one of the oldest and noblest families in the United Systems, Kere’s real name is Darling Cruel. And the one thing he wants most is to see his uncle, who stole the crown by murdering his father, pay for his crimes.
If You Tell A Lie Long Enough, It Becomes The Truth...
In order to protect his mother from execution, Darling’s entire life has been built on a lie that he dare not breathe a contrary word about. His hands tied by his uncle’s cruelty. No one has ever seen the real him. No one except Zarya. She’s the only person he’s ever fully trusted with the truth. But when she betrays him by allowing a weapon he designed solely for her to be used against him, all bets are off.
The Hero Is Now The Monster...
Betrayed to the deepest level, Darling becomes an enemy even worse than his uncle. His goal is not only to reign, but to kill every Resistance member he can find. He won’t rest until all of them are dead and that includes Zarya.
The Twisted Hand Of Fate...
Zarya is the only hope to reach the heart of the man her people once considered their ally. A man who hates her with a fury so great that she knows it’s just a matter of time before he kills her. But if she can find the part of him that once trusted her, the part of him that once loved her, she might be able to save not only her own life, but those of her people.
It’s an impossible mission.
Too bad she doesn’t play the odds.

My Review:

Kere has deadly secret: he's actually Darling Cruel. With his identity as Kere, he can help the rebellion without recuperation's from his uncle, Andros. Kere has fallen in love with the rebel leader, Zarya Starska, but she doesn't know his true identity.

When other rebels kidnap Darling, holding him hostage for six months, Darling is subjected to all manner of torture both physically and emotionally - but most of all mentally. Darling is rescued by The Sentella and Zarya is taken into custody.

Zarya doesn't have the words to describe how she feels discovering that Darling is actually Kere. Six months later, Darling has recovered from his physical wounds and wants Zarya to suffer like he did and then some. Now Darling is going on a killing spree that appears to have no end. Darling's best friend, Mari, is afraid that Darling might not come back to himself without help.

Mari finds Zarya in the hopes to bring Darling back from the edge. Can Zarya help Darling? Will Darling allow Zarya to help him? Your answers await you in Born of Silence.


I love this series so much! Born of Night has been my favorite book of the series thus far until this one. What both Darling and Zarya go through left me an emotional wreck from first page to last. The story had such abusive issues, put downs (both mental and emotional), and such realism that it broke my heart over and over again. The characters are raw, real, honest, down to earth, compelling, and heartbreaking, too. I look forward to my next adventure in this series.

Born of Silence features:

  • erotica
  • oral sex
  • alpha male
  • Sci-Fi
  • angst
  • romance
  • torture
  • mystery
  • suspense
  • intrigue
  • kidnapping

Rating: 5 Kisses
