Though Devon comes from a line of cougar-shifters, her own animal nature has not yet been defined. The mysterious “backers” have captured her, intent on using her untapped Therian abilities for unknown ends. She escapes from their prison, but not from the emotional scars left by their abuse.
Ian, an ancient Therian raptor, offers protection and encouragement. Devon has always wanted Ian, always felt a connection deeper than friendship. But Ian insists he’s too old and jaded to make Devon an honorable mate. If she hopes to feel whole again, she must regain control over her emotions and desires. And she desires Ian.
At first Ian resists Devon’s attempts at seduction. She needs a shoulder to cry on, not a demanding lover, and Ian is never satisfied until his partners surrender unconditionally. But Devon stirs primal instincts and awakens ravenous longings he has suppressed for centuries. He wants her, but he fears the darkness inside him will destroy her.
Review: I couldn’t wait to read Therian Prisoner. I read the first book in this series, Therian Prey, but didn’t get to read the second one. As I was reading, I felt that I had missed some major parts so I need to go back and read the second book. No matter what, I can say that I truly loved this book. I enjoyed meeting all the old characters and then some new ones. I have come to enjoy reading Cyndi’s work. I really enjoy how strong each one of her characters are.
Devon has been kidnapped and made to do things against her will. If I had gone through what she did I would’ve just given up- but she didn’t. She felt dirty and does have some scars, but who wouldn’t? She has the type of personality that I would like to have.
There is more to Ian than even I thought. I enjoyed uncovering a lot of his secrets and feel that with each book we get to know more and more. One of the things I enjoy about this author’s writing is that you never know what will happen next. I thought that Ian would put up more of a fight in the story then he actually did.
The plot was one that grabbed a hold of you and never let go. Even when I reached the end of this book I was left wanting more! I know that the next book in the series will be even more surprising with more secrets revealed. I think I know who will be in the next book and I hope that I’m right!
I recommend this book and series to anyone who loves shifters. When you read this series, you read about different shifters, not just one which is one of the things I like the most.
