In a universe where corruption and deception rule the day, sparks of rebellion threaten to ignite…

Zarya’s entire family was murdered, due to one man’s greed, forcing her to grow up on the back streets of hell.  She became a resistance leader; with the  goal to topple the government that destroyed her family. 

Her right hand is a mysterious man known only as Kere.  But Kere has a dark secret.  Born into a world as privileged as it was corrupt, his real name is Darling Cruel and he’s heir to the government Zarya wants to overthrow.  Just like Zarya, he wants his uncle to pay for killing Darling’s father and stealing his crown. 

Darling has lived a life torn between the two roles.  No one has ever seen the real him; no one but Zarya.  She’s the only person he’s ever trusted.  But when she allows a weapon he designed just for her to be used against his sister, all bets are off. 

Now, betrayed by the resistance, Darling’s goal is not only to reign, but to kill every resistance member he can find.  Zarya is the only one capable of stopping him.  But can she get past his rage and insanity to find the hero who once fought by her side. 

Anyone who has read Kenyon’s League series has been waiting on pins and needles for Darling’s story.  He’s always been the tortured and beaten rich kid to his friends and family.  No one has ever seen the other side of him.  The most precious thing in his life is his sister.  So when someone in the resistance goes after her, Darling’s rage is unleashed. 

This is a must for Kenyon fans.  Holter Graham does his usual stellar job of reading.  He reads all of Sherrilyn’s books, so he has a good grasp of each of the characters.  I can’t imagine anyone else reading her books.  But you better hurry; the next two in the series are Cloak and Silence, due out February 15, 2013, and Born of Fury, due out April 1, 2013.  What a treat to have two of them so close together.  I can't wait!
