St. Martin’s Press (US) are gearing up to release the second book in Sherrilyn Kenyon’s The League series – titled Born of Fire. I recently read, loved and reviewed the first book (Born of Night) and I really am very excited about the prospect of another chance to visit that world and meet a whole collection of new characters.
To support the release, St. Martin’s Press is offering people a chance to win a copy of the book (although it’s limited to US residents only), but if that includes you, then you can check out the competition here.
There’s a bunch of additional promotional material coming along with the release. You can check out an excerpt of Born of Fire on Sherrilyn’s official site. I’ve read it and it’s exciting! It has all of Sherrilyn’s hallmark writing, starting with a pair of adversaries and telling us their story!
On top of that there’s a promo video on YouTube which I’ve embedded below. It’s pretty short, but it gives a good indication of the main characters and should immediately highlight the main difference between this series and Sherrilyn’s Dark Hunter series.
The League is not set on Earth and the technology is far more advanced, but judging by the excerpt and having loved Born of Night, it’s still classic Sherrilyn Kenyon.
From the press release:
New from St. Martin’s Press is #1 New York Times bestselling author, Sherrilyn Kenyon’s 3-book series, ‘The League’! With over 19 million books in print, Sherrilyn Kenyon is renowned the world over as “the reigning queen of the paranormal genre that she pioneered long before the world had heard of Twilight.” The second book from ‘The League’ series, ‘Born of Fire’, will be available November 3rd, 2009.
I’m itching to get my hands on this book after thoroughly enjoying the first one!
