‘Vampires might bite, honey, but lycans tear.’
Jask Tao, lycan leader, rules his pack with absolute dedication and demands the same loyalty in return. In the world of Blackthorn, where respect is a rare commodity, Jask has earned his – few dare to cross him, and fewer survive to tell the tale.
When he captures Sophia, a rare serryn witch – whose blood is lethal to vampires – Jask knows just how valuable she can be. Despite her fiery nature, he also can’t shake the feelings that she rouses in him – feelings that he thought died along with Ellen, his mate.
Sophia knows she has to escape from Jask’s lycan compound – and fast. Inheriting her sister’s serryn powers can only mean one thing – that her family is at risk. She’ll have to get past the dangerously attractive Jask first but, scarred by memories of her mother’s murder, Sophia won’t ever give up.
Sparks fly between Jask and Sophia but, as both her family and the pack come under threat, they might just need each other if they, and their loved ones, are going to stay alive…
In this thrillingly sensual novel, Lindsay J. Pryor returns to the shadowy dystopian world of Blackthorn, where tensions are rising, the risks are high, and the most powerful loves are formed in the face of great danger.

You will have seen my previous reviews of the Blackthorn series, #1 and #2.
With the series now onto #3 I wondered where we would be going next and if Pryor could keep up the form that she displayed with the first two. I didn't need to worry! #3 is quite possibly my favourite of the series.
You meet a new couple in each of the books and in this one we meet Jask, leader of the Lycans. We also meet Sophia who is trying to escape from Jask and find her sisters.
Everything sort of jumps out at you, the action and emotion jumps out of the pages. You feel like you're in the story with the characters. We see past characters and I still haven't really worked out how they will all fit together but that's the world that Pryor has created - keeps me on my toes!
We get introduced to the next couple in the end of this book... oh the tease!
