Born of Legend: The League Nemesis Rising (The League: Nemesis Rising #9) (Mass Market)
Blockbuster bestselling Dark-Hunter author Sherrilyn Kenyon is back with the League—and one of the most notorious heroes of all time in Born of Legend. . .
Hunted. Hated. Betrayed. Outcast Dagger Ixur is on the run for his life. As one of the most recognizable members of his royal house, he has a bounty on his head that guarantees him no quarter from any friend or even family. But surrender isn’t in him. He will fight to the bitter end—a resolve that is sorely tested when he narrowly escapes a trap that leaves him severely wounded. With what he believes is his dying breath, he saves a boy born to an extinct race from a group out to enslave the kid for his legendary abilities.
Ushara Altaan has spent her entire life hating the Andarion royal house that drove away her entire species. When Dagger saves her son’s life, she is torn between her Tavali people and a debt that can never be repaid. Meanwhile, the League assassins after Dagger will stop at nothing to claim the lives of Ushara and her kind. The only hope she has left is to put her faith—and her family’s future—into the hands of the very enemy whose grandmother personally extinguished Ushara’s lineage. But how can Ushara ever trust Dagger when he is a disinherited outlaw whose real name is synonymous with betrayal?
