The Feral warriors were at an impasse. They were the last shifters and their power came from a chosen one, a single female with great power called the radiant. The previous one had died months ago and Lyon was in charge of finding a new one. Their strength had been waning and none of them could shift anymore. They performed a ceremony to get enough power to find the radiant and keep their power so they could defeat evil.
Kara MacAllister, lived in a small town with her sick mother, she taught preschool in the basement of the local church. A few months back everything changed for Kara. She started feeling ill at ease with everything in her life, like she needed something but didn’t know what it was.
When Lyon shows up in her kitchen and takes her away from her home, Kara escapes and goes back to her house where her mother lay dying. Lyon realizes that Kara had no idea that she was Therian or that she was now the radiant and that her mother was human and couldn’t be her real mother. After her mother dies, Kara has no choice but to go with Lyon.
This book was told in dual points of view via solo narration. It was narrated by Rob Shapiro. He is a good narrator with a pleasing voice. His voice is masculine, yet kind of soft and easy to listen to. The story was original and I was a bit surprised at how much I enjoyed it after seeing a few dismal reviews. Maybe this one is better via audiobook, but I did like the story.
I liked the storyline about Kara being a radiant and how the feral shifters had certain ceremonies that were needed to get their powers recharged and how something was happening within their home. They had enemies plotting evil things within the walls of their home. The story was original and interesting. I enjoyed it.
