Born of Defiance This is the 8th book in The League series by Sherrilyn Kenyon and this is now one of my firm favorites. She is a master at writing sci-fi fiction and you can’t help be dragged into the world she creates and she makes you feel the characters emotions and pain. It’s the story of Talyn Batur born an Andorian outcast because his father wouldn't ever claim him, which gave him no lineage or status. Talyn has to ring fight for his position in the military and after years of fighting in the splatter dome and living a lonely existance he craves a different life for himself. So he decides to hire himself a companion in the form of the beautiful Felicia, knowing full well he would never be allowed to fall in love with her. Talyn comes up against many challenges and people who are out to hurt and break him in any way that they can, but they don’t realize how far Talyn will go to protect what belongs to him or those he loves. This is a great read that I gave 5 stars on Amazon and Goodreads!
