When his family is slaughtered and his wife frames him for their deaths, Bastien Cabarro goes on the run for 10 years before taking a chance to clear his name by placing his fate in the hands of his betrayer’s sister, who struggles to choose between their friendship and her duty
Welcome back to the blockbuster bestselling author Sherrilyn Kenyon’s world of the League with Born of Vengeance, where destiny and danger collide. . .
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, Bastien has one chance to strike back, 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 to a tyrant, and she and her team were left to die under the barrage of enemy fire. Today, Ember vows revenge on those who murdered her parents and forced her and her sisters into exile. But joining forces with Bastien comes with a cost—and an attraction too dangerous for their own good. Is it worth the fight if losing means a fate worse than death?
