Cover Alert: Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Born of Defiance, Plus Snippet!

Born of Defiance by Sherrilyn KenyonLast night, Sherrilyn Kenyon gave a hint of the cover for her next League series book, Born of Defiance, before releasing the full cover (plus a snippet from the book) to her fans on Facebook.

Here's the full description of Born of Defiance:

Born an Outcast, Talyn Batur has spent the whole of his life fighting against the prejudice of his people. An Andarion without a father is not something anyone wants to be.

But when his companion’s brother draws him into a plot against the Andarion crown, he finds himself torn between the loyalty to their planetary government that his mother has beaten into him and his own beliefs of justice and right.

Now, he must decide for himself to remain a pawn of their government or to defy everything and everyone he’s ever known to stand up to tyranny. It’s a gamble that will either save his life or end it. And when old enemies align with new ones, it’s more than just his own life at risk. And more than just his homeworld that will end should he fail.

For those who can't wait for the May 5, 2015 release, here's a little snippet from the excerpt Kenyon shared:

Pulling the tray stand over to the bed, she uncovered his food. “Let’s see what we have here. Hmm . . . it’s got to be better than the shite you normally eat.”

“I’ve never heard you swear before.”

“I don’t often.” She picked up the small pudding cup and fed him a bite. “How’s that?”

“Tastes like shit.”

Felicia narrowed her eyes at his surly tone before she took a bite of it.


“I’m seeing for myself. And it’s quite good. I think the crap you call food has destroyed your tastebuds.”

He stroked her cheek with the backs of his fingers.

Am I imagining things, or does that thing on the cover look a bit like a Shardblade? :)
