Loathing the thought of his beloved Oriana in the arms of another man, fearless Zyraxes delivers death upon the Roman enemy. With only the rugged land as his bed and the sky as his blanket, trouble finds him often.

Summoned to aid Oriana’s father in the war against two powerful enemies—one of them Oriana's savage husband—Zyraxes proves himself worthy of more than just noble titles and coin. But he wants none of it. What he wants is her.

When Zyraxes discovers a broken and nearly dead Oriana, though forbidden, he disregards her father's orders to leave her to her death, and instead chooses to protect and conceal her. Will saving her be enough to win her heart? Will his part royal lineage make him worthy of her love?

I'm not a reader who likes war stories. So usually, if there is a war story, I'll skimming it.

Camelia Miron Skiba is a new author for me. And Born in Sin (BIS) is her first book that I read. BIS is the second book that tells about Zyraxes. The first book tells the story of Ilias. Because I did not read the first book, I just guess what kind of story is the previous.

Actually I'm confused about the book's rate. It has a good plot, great character, supporting cast as well, so do the intrigues. But, as I said earlier, I'm not a fan of war stories.

I enjoy read BIS. Camelia Miron Skiba has such a wonderful way of telling this story of war and romance. But, the romance is a little... hmmm.. how should I say this, it's not a "click" with the story. The romance is just embellish the story. It's my opinion though ^^

Overall, I really looking forward for the rest of the series. It's a compact and short story but reveal so many intrigues.

Aku bukanlah pembaca yang menyukai cerita perang. Jadi biasanya, kalo ada cerita perang, aku akan membacanya secara skimming.

Camelia Miron Skiba adalah penulis baru untukku. Dan Born in Sin (BIS) adalah buku pertamanya yang aku baca. BIS ini adalah buku kedua yang bercerita mengenai Zyraxes. Buku pertama menceritakan tentang Ilias. Karena aku tidak baca buku pertamanya, aku hanya dapat mereka-reka cerita sebelumnya seperti apa :)

Sebenarnya aku bingung mau kasih berapa hati karena plotnya bagus, karakternya juga bagus, pemeran pendukung juga bagus, intriknya apalagi. Gak ada yang jelek, cuma kurang mengena di hati sih. Seperti yang aku bilang sebelumnya, aku bukan seorang fans cerita perang.

Aku menikmati membaca BIS. Camelia Miron Skiba adalah seorang penulis yang dapat menceritakan cerita perang dan romansa dengan baik. Tapi romansanya menurutku kurang klik dengan ceritanya. Seperti hanya untuk memperindah ceritanya saja. Yah, tapi ini hanya pendapatku sih ^^

Overall, aku ingin melihat sisa cerita dari seri ini. BIS adalah cerita yang padat dan singkat tapi menyimpan banyak intrik di dalamnya.

  1. This is a great story. Born in Sin is an authentic love story, the story of a man and the woman he's loved his whole life. It's nice to see a true-to-life romance for once instead of a romp in the bushes being confused with love (nothing wrong with a romp, but you can't always call that love...) These characters seemed like real people and not just stereotypes plopped into a book.
