About the Book

Original Publication Date: December 26, 1995

Setting: Ichidian Universe

In the Ichidian Universe no one was safe people were dragged from their homes and killed in the streets. Victims of a ruthless tyrant who was bent on being the sole ruler. Those who opposed him formed an alliance called The League, which fell under the leadership of the Quorum.

The Quorum realized that the best way to keep trouble from starting was to cut it off at its knees. So a separate group of soldiers was needed, The League Assassins. Highly trained and highly valued, they are the backbone of the government. But not even the League is immune to corruption…

  Command Assassin Nykyrian Quikiades was born and trained to slaughter. Refusing to be a pawn, he turned his back on the League and has been hunted by them ever since. Though many have tried, none can kill him. Now he's taken his place with his family and is trying to raise a brood of stubborn progeny. Being an assassin was so much easier... I like collecting antiques. They remind me of the past and don't try to kill me when I...

The Story Behind The Story

Authors will always tell you that every book they write is special. That they all hold a tender place in our hearts. This is very true, but some of them are particularly precious.

For me, this book is one of them. Nykyrian and Syn were actually my childhood playmates. As a latchkey kid, I used to turn the kitchen chairs on their backs and pretend I was flying through space with my best friends by my side. I know it sounds silly, but I was hooked and I adored them.

Over the years, I wrote down many adventures I took with them and when I was in college and had decided to write my first “real” novel, i.e. one I was actually going to submit to publishers, there was no one else I wanted to write about.

I spent a year drafting Born of Night by hand– yeah, that was entertaining. Anyone who has ever attended a signing knows how illegible my writing is. During...

Is Born of Night going to be available in Hardcover again???

Anyone else feel Hollywood should have made these books into a movie instead of Jupiter Ascending?

A year ago I picked up Born of Night at Barnes and Noble and since than I have read the rest of the series. I have fallen in love with all of the characters and want to thank you for your amazing writing skills. I am hoping to be a writer myself and have written many stories so reading how you started to write your first real novel in college gives me hope. Especially since i'm going to college next year

I was referred to this book by my math teacher. She is crazy obsessed with this series and is constantly reading it. ( Well listening, she loves to listen to the books). She didn't let me down, this is a great book. And now because of our common interest, I believe I'll get a better grade. Thank you! Fantastic story!

"Star Wars on steroids" is the description that comes to mind after reading this book and having started Born of Fire. You have a new fan Sherrilyn! I am absolutely eveloped by this series so far. The characters you've created have made me laugh out loud. Not to mention their back stories have also tugged at my heart strings...and I'm a Man. Love the series and looking forward to continue reading. Any talk of a movie adaptation as I think it would do phenomenal?!
