      Notes: Received an eARC loan from the publisher and am a member of Pamela's "street team". In other words, I love her books so much that I've volunteered to help her get out the word about upcoming releases. 

Six weeks ago a group of friends decided to take a day-trip to Harpers Ferry, a National Historical Park, and go hiking. Of the six who started out, only three survived, one of whom was declared missing. A week of Natalie Cash's life was lost and she remembers virtually nothing of that period in time except how it started out pleasantly enough and ended when she woke up a week later wondering what horrific event had caused three of her friends to lose their lives. Her brother, Xavier, who had accompanied her for the trip has not been seen or heard from since and is feared dead. Something Natalie refuses to believe or accept. 

Six weeks ago six humans unwittingly ended up in the middle of a battle between wraith Daemons and Feral Warriors. The Ferals managed to kill the Daemons but only after three of the humans had parished. Of the three who survived, two were held for a week and observed before having their memories erased and being released. The third, Xavier, was blind and his memories could not be taken as memories are stolen through the eyes. To keep their supernatural existence a secret they couldn't allow him to leave.

Wulfe appointed himself Natalie's protector and, in the weeks that followed, has periodically been checking up on her in his wolf form. When he observes an unnatural glow about her, he realizes she may not have escaped unscathed after all. When Inir, the Mage who is trying to free the rest of the wraith Daemons and their leader from their prison appears, Natalie will once again become the unwitting pawn in a game which, if lost, could unleash an evil not seen in five thousand years upon the earth.


Another great book in the Feral Warriors series. Unfortunately, it's also the eighth and final book. If you haven't read the previous books in the series, I encourage you to do so. Each book builds up to this final showdown and you won't want to miss a thing. 

Slowly, but surely, the Feral Warriors are losing their links to their animal spirits. The Curse that Inir cast upon the group is starting to take hold. When a Feral Warrior loses its connection to its animal spirit they can no longer shift; and their immortality, a gift attached to their animals spirit, is no more. They become as mortal as anyone else and begin to age normally once again. In a race against time, they must decide whether to strike immediately or wait till they are stronger, if that's even possible. 

Natalie is an optometrist and chose that field because of her brother Xavier's handicap. She's struggling to deal with the events that happened mere weeks ago and her relationship with her fiance is on shaky ground. She's having dreams that feel more like memories, but make no sense. What she dreams just isn't possible--men shifting into animal forms and a monster attacking her. While her fiance is supportive, he just can't seem to understand why she's not like the Natalie he'd come to know. He just doesn't get why she's changed.

Wulfe, even though he won't act upon it, is attracted to Natalie. She's a kind and loving individual and he grew fond of her during the week they'd kept her to make sure there were no ill affects from the Daeomon attack. His mate, Beatrice, died nine months ago and when one of a mated pair dies, the mating bond of the individual left behind becomes damaged occasionally killing them. Wulfe realizes a mating with another woman is probably impossible so he keeps his feelings to himself. Plus, he'd never come between her and her fiance. 

Overall, I gave this one 4 1/2 our or 5 roses. There is enough action, drama and twists to keep the reader glued to the book. Wulfe was a wonderful character with a lot of issues to work through, and I loved how Natalie helped him to deal with them. The attraction between Wulfe and Natalie was undeniable. It was fun to watch as Wulfe tried to deny his feelings thereby protecting Natalie. On the Lisarenee Romance Rating Scale, this one got a STEAM rating--too hot for a fan, but you still have a handle on things. You should use extreme caution when reading a book with this rating in public. People may inquire as to why you looked flustered and flushed.
