Before Carissa has time to react to her sister’s disappearance, she’s kidnapped and taken deep into the Colorado mountains. Her kidnapper swears he’s protecting her, but Carissa doesn’t know what to believe. He emanates danger, strength and raw sexuality. She’s drawn to him, craves his demanding kiss and the slide of his body against and into hers.

Quinn has always been an outsider, scorned and mistrusted by the other Therian shapshifters. Now he’s in the middle of a budding civil war and he’s not sure how to disentangle himself without ehdangering Carissa. Though her powers are latent, Carissa has the potential of becoming the most powerful Therian the world has ever seen.

It was Quinn’s intention to bring Carissa to safety and simply walk away, but one taste of her sweet lips and he knows he’ll never let her go. She won’t be truly safe until she’s selected her mate-and he intends to be the one she chooses.


Review:  Therian Prey is a great book, with new and exciting beings.

Carissa and her sister Ava are just minding their own business and one day a stranger walks in and everything changes. Carissa doesn’t know who to believe and wonders if any of its real.

Quinn is asked by his friend to find the twins and bring them in. Someone gets Ava before he does. When he sees Carissa she starts going into heat and that changes their fates.

I really liked Therian Prey. I got to meet people that turn into bears, birds, cats and other forms. They are all called Therians. I started reading and it kept my attention through the whole book. I enjoyed watching Carissa having to make a choice on which male she wanted. She really had her work cut out for her.

With Carissa choosing a mate becomes high responsibilities. One’s I’d never want on my shoulders. She knows nothing of who or what she is. With Quinn by her side I do believe that she can do it. Now all they need to do is find her sister and figure out what else is going on.

I enjoyed the excitement of the book. I was taken to a whole new world and didn’t want to leave. I hope that everything works out without any one else getting hurt. This is a great start for a great series. I can’t wait to see what will happen next.

I recommend this book to anyone who loves meeting new shifters. The sex is great and I love the feeling I get when I read this book.
