Born of Night

Born of Night  - Sherrilyn Kenyon Re-read with Maru and Claudia.

What did you think about Nykiarian?
Aly: I love how protective he is and… well, relatively normal considering what he went through :D
Claudia: Nykiarian is a real tortured alpha male, but he is able to overcome that and therefore I love him ;) (although at the beginning he was a bit whiny)

How would you describe Kiara? How about Nykirian?
Aly: Kiara is strong and determined and smart, really, really smart. Nykirian is psychotic, caring and has a strange sense of humor.
Claudia: Kiara is a strong and clever character, who doesn't want to be judged according to her appearance or her heritage. I especially liked the way she was able to look at things through different eyes, although she sometimes needed some time for it
Nykirian is a protective Alpha male who would do anything for the people he loves (although he has trust issues)

What would you like to change, if you could?
Aly: Besides the torture Sherry puts most of her characters through nothing.. and that I would tone down a bit, note eliminate it all[I’m a sadist, I know :D]
Claudia: hm ... not sure, at the beginning Nykirian was a bit whiny, which I did not enjoy very much and at the end I had some troubles with Kiaras reasoning ... but other than that,nothing ;)

Who is your favorite character?
Aly: Crap, I can’t choose, especially because I read all the series.
Claudia: definitely Syn!

If you could, would you live in this universe?
Aly: I love the weapons and the whole cultures in this world. Though I don’t know if I’d really live in it, considering that the League is an asshole-ic institution that can f*ck everything up.
Claudia: I think the possibility to experience all the different worlds and to get to know so many different ideas would be great, but the laws there are quite difficult. so all in all, I don't think so

Favorite quote:
Aly: I think we both need to work on our communication skills. (Kiara)
I tried that once. (Nykyrian)
And? (Kiara)
Darling told me that I could never hold a job as a suicide counselor or hostage negotiator. He said my failure rate would become the stuff of legends. (Nykyrian)
Claudia: as expected ... I have no idea ;)

What character do you want to read about?
Aly: I’d love to read a novella or story about Nykirian’s mom, she sounded amazing.
Claudia: I want full books about all of them ;)

Favorite quote no 2 :D:
He met Kiara’s gaze. “Thank you.”
“For what?”
“For giving me a life worth living. I know I’m not worth it, and that I don’t deserve it, but I swear to the gods I finally believe in that I will spend every moment I have left making you happy and trying to be worthy of you.”
Kiara’s eyes filled with tears. “Nykyrian, you are worth everything to me. And you always will be.”
