4 Kiss Review: Born of Vengeance (The League: Nemesis Rising #10) by Sherrilyn Kenyon


A fate worse than death . . .
Bastien Cabarro survived the brutal slaughter of his entire family only to have his wife pin their murders on him. Made Ravin by The League, he is now a target for their assassins-in-training to hunt and kill. The average life expectancy for such beings is six weeks. But defying the odds is what this Gyron Force officer does best, and Bastien won’t rest until he lays his betrayers in their graves.

Ten years later, he has one chance to balance the scales of justice, provided he relies on his former wingman— the very sister of the woman who testified against him.
Major Ember Wyldestarrin joined the outlaw Tavali the day Kirovar fell into the hands of a tyrant, and she and her team were left on an outpost to die under a barrage of enemy fire. The last thing she wants is to be involved in politics again. But if she doesn’t bring Bastien in, her sister will pay the ultimate price. Now she has to find some way to betray her former wingman (and fiance) before he catches on and kills her. Even so, treachery doesn’t come easy to a woman who took a loyalty oath to protect her homeworld and comrades-in-arms.
Yet as she tries to do right by her family, she learns that Bastien doesn’t just hold the key to the fate of Kirovar, he is vital to The Sentella-League war, and to the entire Tavali nation. If she hands him over, three nations fall. If she doesn’t, her entire family dies. Their fates are all in her hands, and time for all of them is quickly running out.

My Review:

Bastien Cabarro is a prince who no one in his family thinks very much of, nor is considered worthy of notice. Bastien loves Major Ember Wyldestarrin and he wants a family and future with her, but it's not meant to be.

Ember is threatened by Bastien's father that he'll never accept Ember as Bastien's mate. Then the unthinkable happens: Bastien's family is murdered and Bastien is blamed for it. Bastien pleads his innocence and vows vengeance to anyone who will listen. Can Bastien make good on his vows? Will Bastien be proved innocent? Where is Ember in all of this? Does Ember still love Bastien? Your answers await you in Born of Vengeance.


This is probably one of my favorite books of the series. Two star-crossed lovers reunite through blood and pain to realize several truths about one another. I love stories like this one! Kenyon's writing is crisp and haunting throughout the book. It sucks I've got to wait another year before the next book comes out though. Until then Happy Reading!
