In a world filled with evil, the Fallen prepare for the ultimate battle against the demon world!

Kasadya is ordered to unleash her crazed born transformation to complete her divinity. But there is a chance that her born will be uncontrollable, and she will be destroyed. There is just one person that can save her; her charm, her destined mate. Left without a choice, she must surrender, and place her life in his hands.

In a race against time, the Fallen must stand together and fight the evil threatening to invade earth. If her divinity was in reach, victory would be theirs. That is until she starts having visions of the final battle, and her true destiny is revealed. She just found her love and place in the Fallen world; will she be able, and willing, to sacrifice it all?


“Will you do it already?!” Thonyn yelled from somewhere.

“Indeed.” I replied smiling.

I knew they were struggling with her. Focusing, I poured my feelings into her. It was still strange and foreign, all of these feelings around her, and I was not sure how she would receive them. I opened up to her; I wanted her to feel what I could not tell her. That I admired her. That I am proud of her, regardless of her flaws. That she was magnificent in my eyes. But most of all, and I feared for this, I wanted her to feel my love for her. The moment I had her in my arms and felt her mouth against mine, I knew that I loved this stubborn girl with everything inside me. For her I, would slay all evil, and would travel to hell to ensure her safety.

I've said it before and I'll say it again!  Be sure when you start Karen's Kasadya Series you start each book well before you plan to sleep at night!  I don't mean that it will keep you up all night with night terrors, but it will keep you up all night turning the pages.  As you can see I did none of the above when I read Awakened, Twisted or Born.  I started them late and finished them all early. 

Once again Born takes off where Twisted left off, so if you are wanting to start this awesome series, please be aware, read in order starting with Awakened.  You will grow with Kas, fall in love with Chax (eventually - at first you might want to strangle him like I did) and become a Hellhound Addict.  Born takes you places you can only imagine.  I cannot begin to go into detail with all the action or the emotional ride it took me on.  Below are a few of my Goodreads updates as I flipped through the pages, sometimes wanting to sleep to no avail, other times wanting to scream - and so I did...

38.0% "You know you're hooked when you go to bed exhausted, just start reading and stay up all night. Come on Kas get it together before I open my own can of whoop ass... Chax darlin', I think I'm in love... ::swoon::"
39.0% "Took you long enough Chax!!!"
44.0% "This book is going down and I don't mean I'm putting it down!!! That's the problem! Hello sleep deprived!!! Coffee anyone?"
63.0% "WTG Kas!!! Now Chax be nice... Oh so many questions... Sleep has been deprived long enough.. Goodnight!"
66.0% "OMG Could it be? Finally! Oh please, oh please, oh please gimme gimme gimme more Chax!"
71.0% "OH OH OH... Now that was intense!!! <3"
93.0% "NO! NO! NO! This can't be good...."
96.0% "There has to be another way!!!"

I highly doubt Defined (Kasadya #4) will manage to reach my Kindle fast enough.  I'm dying to know what happens next!
