The war is on…

Counted among the fiercest Andarion warriors ever born, Hauk is one of the five founding members of the Sentella: an organization that has declared war on the League. They rule the Ichidian universe with an iron fist and terrify it with an army of well-trained assassins. Hauk’s enemies are legion, but he fears nothing and no one. He will do whatever it takes to survive and protect his Sentella brethren.

Sumi Antaxas is one of the best assassins the League has ever trained. In her world, failure is not an option and she has never met a target she couldn’t execute. So when she’s assigned Hauk, she believes it’ll be a quick and easy mission.But nothing is ever as simple as it seems, and Hauk is far better skilled than any she’s faced before, in Born of Fury from #1 Bestselling Author Sherrilyn Kenyon.

Oh my goodness I loved this book so much! This series just keeps getting better and better! I’ve have always loved Hauk and couldn’t wait for this book! He ends up with the perfect woman for him. She kicks butt and protects her male. Loved Sumi! Their story is full of action, danger, emotion and romance. Sherrilyn Kenyon puts so much into her stories that the reader experiences the world of The League Series and you take the journey with her characters. The reader experiences such a full range of emotions. I’ve received some comments from other readers about being reluctant to try the series because of the space setting and I wanted to let everyone know that if you love Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark-Hunter Series you will love The League Series too. It’s not really about the setting for me. It’s about Kenyon’s dynamic characters and their stories. They’re just incredible and there is not another author like Kenyon. I love them all!

The #1 New York Times bestselling author, Sherrilyn Kenyon, who is proud of her mixed Cherokee heritage, lives a life of extraordinary danger… as does any woman with three sons, a husband, a menagerie of pets and a collection of swords that all of the above have a major fixation with. But when not running interference (or dashing off to the emergency room), she’s found chained to her computer where she likes to play with all her imaginary friends. With more than twenty-five million copies of her books in print, in over one hundred countries, she certainly has a lot of friends to play with too.

In the last few years, she has placed more than 65 novels on the New York Times list in all formats including manga. This extraordinary bestseller continues to top every genre she writes. Her current series include: The Dark-Hunters, The League, and Chronicles of Nick.

Her Lords of Avalon novels have been adapted by Marvel, her Dark-Hunter novels are a New York Times bestselling manga published by St. Martins. and the Chronicles of Nick manga are published by Yen Press. Chronicles and Nick and Dark-Hunter are soon to be a major motion picture and the Dark-Hunters are currently being developed as a television series.

CORI & DONNA’s INTERVIEW WITH SHERRILYN KENYON:

1. I just finished reading Born of Fury (I loved Hauk and Sumi) and went back to read Born of Ice (Devyn’s book) because the kids were so cute in Born of Fury I wanted to read about some of them as adults. Who’s next in The League Series? One of the a kids of The Sentella or one of their adult friends?

Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Answer:
Aww thank you, sweetie!! That means a lot to me.

I will, for the most part (and this will make sense later) do only the parents until we run out, LOL. And then return to GEN 2 for The League. I’m trying to go in chronological years, though Born of Defiance will go back in time to start and then catch up to present day in the series by the end of the book. There’s a ton of info about Cairistiona, Nyk, Aros and many others in it (it starts right before Born of Night begins).

But, the next League book is Born of Betrayal, which will be Fain and Galene and then Born of Defiance, which is Galene’s son Talyn and his Felicia (you will LOVE them in BOB).

Both Born of Betrayal (May) and Born of Defiance (Nov) will be out in 2015.

**************************************

2. Any chance The League series has been talked about for TV rights? I think it’d be great on the SyFy channel! I can’t wait for CON and Dark-Hunter movies and TV shows!

Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Answer:
I can neither confirm, nor deny that at the moment 🙂

**************************************

3. In the Dark-Hunter Series do you know who’s coming next and in what order or do some characters demand to be heard first? I’m always thrilled with whoever you chose to write about but we’d love to know when some of our favorites will get a book. Savitar, Remi, Jaden, Thorn, and Solin are some characters I’m dying to read more about. I picture a giant timeline on your wall or something.

Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Answer:
LOL, I got lots of OTHER stuff on my walls (mostly to scare my children away so they won’t bother me while I’m working). But no time lines. I try to control them, but they’re like herding cats.

The next one up though, is Thorn’s little brother (Cadegan) and the Devereaux sister’s fave cousin (Jo). The neatest thing about it is you learn a lot about Thorn and Max (the Sanctuary dragon) and it’s tied to the Lords of Avalon series. I can’t say anything more without a massive spoiler though 🙂

**************************************

4. You have stated on many occasions that your characters speak to you or remain silent like Remi. Do you ever force them to tell their story to get where you want the story to be? I remember reading that you didn’t want to hear what Styxx had to say but he kept demanding to be heard. It’s amazing writing when you can cause readers to love a character we hated when you tell their story. I was emotional mess when reading Styxx and my little dog kept trying to comfort me when reading it.

Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Answer:
I’m so touched. I know, I hated Styxx, too, and now I love him, lots and lots.

No, I can’t force them to do anything. It’s like trying to get my cat off the printer. Any attempt to do so is not only futile, but results in me wrapped up in Band Aids and bleeding.

**************************************

5. Do you have a clear roadmap for your characters that you stick to or do they morph as the story progresses? Example: In the Dark Hunter’s One Silent Night there is a brief glimpse of compassion from Medea that leaves the door open for her to rid herself of the distrust and hatred of humans.

Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Answer:
I let the characters fly. I’m telling their story and it’s all theirs and not mine. I never interfere and the whole reason I write is so that I can see where they’ll take me.
