ARC review: Born In Sin by Camelia Miron Skiba

BORN IN SIN (Dacian Legends, #2)

Blurb by Goodreads

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?

Camelia Miron Skiba took my breath away with BORN IN VENGEANCE (Dacian Legends, #1) and she has done it again with Zayraxes story in Born In Sin. Zayraxes had me at the moment he rescued his one and only love from dying by the hands of her evil husband.

“All these years I’ve been away from her I haven’t lived. I only survived. All these years I’ve buried my love for her, hopeless, endless, a raw wound to never heal.”

I loved how there was a little surprise about Zayraxes identity. He broke my heart when he had to choose from treating a sick character and Oriana. Many times I could not swipe my e-reader fast enough to see if Zayraxes was going to get caught for having Oriana in her dads castle. Her dad blames her for her brothers deaths and is not allowed back home.

New characters are introduce. I hope they will get their own story and OMG was afraid to swipe my e-reader to see if one of those characters was going to die. Interested about Cavarus Maximus and his kick butt red dipped arrows. Hope to see more of him in future novels.

Adore the love the brothers have. They are not blood related but brothers in arms. You feel the family love when they joke, laugh and even fight. One of those brothers I am crushing on at the moment is Galtys with his Vino and womanizing way. Seeing Galty loose himself a little to Thera was amazing. Seeing him loose his control towards Zayraxes about a misunderstanding with Thera was even better. They have to have their own story and I hope it is next.

Born In Sin is an edge of your seat novel with love and war and surprises I did not see coming. The love is real, beautiful and not pushed. The battle scenes are kick butt, real that you feel like you are right there fighting along Zayraxes and his brothers. I look forward to more books in Dacian Legends series and can not wait to see who is up next, the beautiful cover and where the story will be going.

Favorite Quote:
“My life does not belong to me nor do I care if I lose it. Without Oriana my life is not worth living.”



  1. Capri dear,

    Picture me kicking my butt for not seeing your review when it came out. I've been at a writer's conference starting Thursday last week and didn't get back until Sunday. Yeah, I'm still trying to drag my sorry butt out of bed every morning, but it was so worth it. Browsed over to your page here and saw your review. Again: how did I miss it when it came out??? You gave me goosies with your review. You so nailed it. And since you liked it so much, here a little secret: at the end of the published version of BORN IN SIN there is the first chapter in BORN IN DARKNESS. Your wish is in making... yes, Thera and Galtys' story. I'll send you the chapter by email so at least you get to see it before everyone else. Lots of love and boatload of THANK YOU!!!

  2. You convinced me, thanks for the review !

  3. Awesome Review! Going to add this to my wishlist NOW!!! I think I am in love with the hero already, and I haven't read it yet. LOL Thanks for sharing.
