Born of Ice (The League #3)


In the Ichidian Universe, the League and its ruthless assassins continue to keep rule. But at what cost? Welcome back to the future…and a whole new world.Devyn Kell spent his life in service to the League until he learned of the double dealing and backstabbing that was costing innocent people their lives. Refusing to play those politics, he became a Runner—someone who makes sure planets get the weapons, medicine and supplies they need to survive. May the gods have mercy on any who get in his way, because he definitely won’t.Alix Garran is a woman on the run from a past she can’t escape. Signing on to work for Devyn as a System’s Engineer, she finds a cause she can fight for—and a man she can respect. But as Alix’s past catches up to her, and Devyn’s old enemies turn lethal, they have to fight together…or fall alone.

Sci-fi mood sci-fi mood *dances*

But… it still wasn’t what I wanted. Dammit it’s difficult to find a good sci-fi romance full of action, adventure, drama and emotional moments and less on thoughts about how hot the dude you’re drooling is. Yes Alix, that’s you.

“You want me to reset the machine?”

No. I want to ride you until you’re begging me for mercy. Clearing her throat, she tried to shove that image out of her mind.

“That would be great. Thanks.”

And strip off the rest of your clothes while you’re doing that.

Anyways, I still loved the crew and I want to be a part of it and live on the ship and be a cool copilot and go to dangerous missions and have an exciting life while visiting different planets. Ugh I so hate my life right now...

I liked Devyn and his whole multiple personality disorder. That’s what his attitude meant to me. He’s a good guy in a second and then the next he turns psycho and kills ten guys with only a fork. Yep, he’s that good. Now I may be sick but two faced people fascinate me. They offer variety so you don’t get bored easily. Plus, as all of SK’s characters, he’s a hot motha so of course all the ladies are drooling over him. But that’s not important. He’s just too perfect perky and shiny. I mean yeah he had a normal life, he’s a mamma’s boy (wtf?? So not cool!) and got raised in a very good environment. I’m surprised he didn’t end up a pansy after all this pampering. Cruel but the cool heroes have childhood issues. And psychopaths also but let’s not ruin the fun.

Alix is... strange? At first I thought she’s sweet and felt bad for her childhood issues but she didn’t make a good heroine. I didn’t feel a connection to her nor Devyn, while I’m at it. They lacked chemistry and their “feelings” (love especially) didn’t seem genuine. But that doesn’t mean that they weren’t fun together. Nothing too fancy.

Aaaaaaaand Nero ♥ he’s my boy-toy in this series!

Well *sighs* I wanted more action and a better story. I have to admit that this is the typical thing you find these days in romance novels. Guy meets girl, love/lust whatever at first sight, girl has to screw guy over to save family from death, guy finds out but forgives her, guy and girl join forces to battle the boogeyman. Is it just me or does this book resemble the majority of Sherrilyn Kenyon’s stories? Or maybe just The League series? I have nooo idea but it’s still a fun book to read.

 
Final Score: ***
