REVIEW: Therian Promise | Therian Heat Bk 2 | Cyndi Friberg | Ellora's Cave
Publisher: Ellora's Cave
4 of 5 stars
In Therian Promise, Kyle has to prove to himself as much as every one else that he is worthy of his seat on the Prime Council, mostly because of his youth. You see, he's the youngest feline shifter ever to hold a position on it and feels he has to do so. Now the wolves have discovered a "latent" female with incredibly powerful potential and this might be just the thing to prove himself: bring her in before the wolves make her one of them and turn her into an enemy- one of unknown dimension.
Ava trusts no one and when a vision sends her into flight mode once more, she finds herself stepping right into the hands of a man whose touch turns her blood to fire instead of fear. Now she must decide whether to give her fragile trust to a shifter whose soul calls to hers or take flight and possibly deny herself the future she's wanted forever.
I liked this one because the journey to life was both emotionally and physically trying. The main characters had to examine feelings they'd never encountered which made me chuckle at times, even though it probably wasn't intentional, while on the run from people out to use and abuse Ava. The action was good, the sex hot and the depth of the characters satisfying-the only disappointment- I didn't like the ending. Though I'm hoping the beginning of the next one satisfies my curiosity.
