Ichidian Universe

Caillen Dagen is an interesting mix of soldier of fortune, space pirate, and a survivor. He is well known for his ability to move through the Ichidian universe like a wraith. His brushes with the law and death are legendary. However, when an act of heroism lands him under the executioner's thumb, he wakes up to find that his birthright is not what he grew up believing. Caillen finds himself thrown into a world of obscene wealth and lethal politics.

Desideria serves as an official bodyguard to her queen. In spite of her questionable background, she is fierce, determined, and constantly fighting to prove herself worthy of the weapons she carries and the position she won by combat. Then Desideria uncovers a plot to assassinate the queen and take over the kingdom and she is caught in the crossfire.

Caillen and Desideria find that there are assassination contracts out on both of them. They must learn to fight together. If they fail, their governments will fall into the hands of an unbelievable evil. It's do or die.

As always, Sherri nocks your socks off with another League novel. Born of Shadows delves into the life and times of Caillen. Between the family he grew up with and the new family he never knew he had, his life is turned upside down. Then you add in Desideria to the mix. Wow! What a combo. With Sherri's sense of humor and her touch of action and adventure, you can't go wrong with this one. Once again Holter Graham does the reading for this book. He has done the reading for several of her books. I love his voice and he really seems to have a feel for how to read Sherri's stories. It kind of brings the story even more to life than when you read the book. I can't wait for the next one.
