Quote-tastic(#38): Born of Fury by Sherrilyn Kenyon

This meme is about sharing your favorite quotes and the books they come from!

It is Hosted by Anna at Herding Cats and Burning Soup.
Today I'm sharing with you all a great excerpt from "Born of Fury", it kind of made me laugh and cry at the same time :))

Clicking on the cover sends you to the book's Goodreads page 

Rolling his eyes, Nyk held his daughter tighter. “Seriously, I know what you’re going through, Hauk. One minute, you’re alone in your hole. Having a pretty good life. Content with things, for the most part. Lonely at times, but you’re so accustomed to that, you don’t really think about it anymore. You only have yourself to worry over, and whatever bullshit trouble your friends get into. Then out of the blue, this amazing woman blindsides you. She adds something to your life you didn’t even know was missing. Next thing you know, she’s got her bras hanging in your bathroom, you’re eating dinner at a table in your house where you used to store parts, with silverware you didn’t even know you had, and she’s taken over your world completely. Worse, she has become your entire existence and you’re now civilized in a way you never thought you could be. And instead of alcohol-induced brawls, you live just to see the way her eyes light up when you enter her line of sight. And the fear that she’s going to be taken away is so consuming that you can’t stop thinking about it. You see enemies everywhere. Every shadow. Every whisper of wind. And if that’s not unnerving enough, you find out you have a kid who’s even more dependent on you and who means every bit as much to you.”

To add to it and to see how cool Sherri and her team are, go look at the League Family Tree[it has spoilers]. It really boggles the mind :)

  1. Awww... that is so sweet! Is this part of a series? I saw on the cover that's it's a League Novel. I haven't read from this author yet and I love the quote you featured. Where would be the best book to start reading Sherrilyn Kenyon? :)

  2. Oh yay! This is the 8th in a series :D

    Depends what you want to read:
    Adult PNR: The Dark Hunter universe and start with Fantasy Lover(no 0 in the series :D, it has about 30 books and novellas)

    YA PNR: Chronicles of Nick(I haven't read them yet)l they tie in with the Dark Hunter series

    SF romance: the League series, start with Born of Night(I am starting a re-read of the series with a friend tomorrow if you want to join us)

    Historical romance: Master of Desire(prequel for the MacAllisters and the Brotherhood of the Sward, it's a medieval romance series)-finished

    Romantic Suspense: Born To Be BAD(1st in the BAD agency)-finished

    PNR: Sword of Darkness(1st in the Lords of Avalon series, inspired by the Arthurian legends, and it rocks!); unfortunately it has 2 books only and it's unfinished

    I for one would start with the Dark Hunters or the League :) You should also go to her website, she has character profiles( with quotes and pictures) and the book pages sometimes have quotes, they also have all the characters that appear in the book listed and buying links. IMO she has the best of the best author website in the world.
