In a universe where assassins make the law, everyone lives in fear—except for Syn. Born of an illicit scandal that once rocked a dynasty, he always knew how to survive on the bloodthirsty streets. But that was then, and the future is now... Syn was raised as a tech-thief until his livelihood uncovered a truth that could end his life. He tried to destroy the evidence, and has been on the run ever since. Now trained as an assassin, he allows no one to threaten him. Ever. He is the darkness that swallows his enemies whole. Shahara Dagan is the best bounty hunter in the universe. When Syn comes back on the radar, she's the only one who can bring him to justice. There's only one problem: Syn is a close family friend who's helped out the Dagans countless times. But if she saves him, both of their lives will be on the line. Is Syn's protection worth the risk? The only hope Shahara has is to find the evidence he buried long ago. Now it's kill or be killed—and they, the predators, have just become the hunted... Born of Fire is the second book in bestselling author Sherrilyn Kenyon's League series.

Born of Fire is a story of personal-growth for a woman struggling to regain her footing after near blindness, and the subsequent end of her twenty-five-year marriage. Overwhelmed by feelings of rejection, loneliness, and isolation in the marshes of the Neuse River in North Carolina, she began to make cryptic notes of feelings and dreams, and then essays on memories of her earlier life. Born of Fire is a one-year diary of a sensitive, spiritual, and intuitive being who faced the destruction of her life as she knew it, and follows her attempt to heal, transform her life, and open herself to a higher wisdom. On the perilous path of spiritual enlightenment, Ms. Cottrell describes the miracles she witnessed as she was cast repeatedly into the fire of transformation.

Born of Fire is a work that presents the astounding, yet rational proposal that humankind has been evolving not for thousands or millions of years, but since the time when the universe emerged. Called a proposal, the story lends credible evidence to its primary thesis such that the reality of our very ancient origin may be accepted as fact. With profound implications, this pedigree of extreme lineage then places our disembodied human forms, our ultra-durable quarks and leptons, in near proximity to a first-cause Creator. Leaning heavily on scientific exposition throughout its chapters, the human brain is touted as Nature's greatest cosmic enterprise, through which we have achieved the status of God's extended intelligence into his created world. Though not a metaphysical tour de force, in bringing about this relationship between divine and mortal intelligence, time, natural laws, mind, consciousness, self, free will, and artificial intelligence are called into question, as well as God's omnipotence and omniscience. The story ends with a critique of current orthodox religions and their ability to prosper in future times of greater enlightenment plus the unthinkable, yet possible emergence of science as a source of future religious expression.
