"Death Becomes Us All."


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 walk into a room. Though a couple have been known to attack my toes. Painful but not lethal.

Let no one see your emotions. Emotions = weakness. No one needs to know how to torture you.

My only weakness are my pets who are even more vicious than I am.

There’s only work. Everything else is just a distraction.

The bloodier the kill, the better.

I actually like to cook. Go figure.

Death Defying

Close call tonight. I was distracted by Syn who was in a particularly belligerent mood. Had one of Aksel's scabs sneak up on me. Punk got in one punch. I only got one in myself. But I made mine count. Guess Ak will be looking for...

Hear it from the Fans

i really just love Nyk. he is by far my most favorite character in the whole of her books that i have read.

I am rereading this series for the I dunno 5th or 6th time. I love Nykrian so much. This story has such an amazing way of drawing you in and making you lost in this world. That is why I read it so much and love it. LOL My daughter is begging to read it. I hope stories about there large family and children will emerge.

They need to have waaaaay more books like born of night that feature more round Nykrian and Kiara. I LOVE his name, Naykrian. Kenyon picked his name well

i sooo want to get a toattoo like him

Lucas, July 23, 2011

Love Nykyrian, the name rocks. This book was so good, I wasn't sure about it because I love Ash so much, but this series is the bomb.

I think Nykrian has to be the sexist character out of ALL the book. My gosh!!! I love his rough exterior with the inners of a "giant teddy bear".

Alicia, July 20, 2011

My fav out of all the assassins. I get really attached to the characters in this series and have to take a couple of days before I can move on to the next book LOL. But Nykiran is my favorite.

When Caillen take the throne he changed his name to de Orczy. Why does Nykyrian retains the name of Quiakides instead of using the name of eton Anatole?

Alisha, July 18, 2011

    Quiakides is a name that spreads terror into the hearts of all who hear it. He kept it for the intimidation factor. While Caillen Dagan was renowned, he wasn't an assassin who political opponents would fear or respect. The artistos look down their noses at smugglers as riff-raff. Only a rank idiot would look down their nose at an assassin. And if they did, it wouldn't be for long. Caillen changed his name for the same reason Nykyrian kept his. To protect their loved ones.
