[Review]: Cloak & Silence by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Title: Cloak & Silence
Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
Series: The League
Genre: SciFi Romance
Release Date: July 8, 2013

  One of the fiercest soldiers the Phrixians have ever produced, Maris Sulle has been an outsider the whole of his life. He grew up with a secret that cost him everything- His birthright, his family and his military career. In all his life, he’s only had one love and he has sacrificed his own happiness to see his best friend reunited with the woman he loves. But now that his good deed is done, he feels lost and adrift. Even though they do their best to include him in their new family, he’s once again on the outside looking in.

Ture has spent his life hiding from everyone around him while trying desperately to fit in. His family, the world, you name it. Badly hurt by everyone he’s ever known, he trusts no one except his own best friend. And honestly, he can’t understand why he trusts her. Nor can he believe her when she describes a loyalty between friends the likes of which he’s never seen.

But when he is in his darkest hour, he’s saved by a hero he thought only existed in novels. A man who is every bit as scarred and mistrusting as he is. One who has no interest in being dragged into another relationship with anyone.

Having spent his life as a living study of doomed relationships, Maris is well aware of the courtship and fiasco that invariably follows. Still, there is something about Ture he can’t resist. Something that won’t let him walk away when he knows he should.

But when old enemies return to threaten them both, they either have to stand together or die alone.

Thoughts: Phrixian, Maris Sulle hasn't had the easiest of lives.  Tormented by his own family for being different as well as school mates, that is until he meets Darling Cruel his best friend.  From that day on he is in love with Darling. No one  has held any interest to him but Darling (even though Darling is straight) that is until he saves and meets Ture. An event that changes both of them.

This is only the second M/M I have read, but its one of my favorites.  Maris Sulle is a bad ass warrior, one that has been through hell and back but still he is so vibrant that you can't help but love him. Cloak & Silence is a fast read, but absolutely enjoyable. Maris and Ture's story is filled with action, heartbreak and warmth.  I think fans will love them. This is a must read, especially if you have been reading The League.

Score: 4 Stars
