They are called Feral Warriors -- an elite band of immortals who can change shape at will. Sworn to rid the world of evil, consumed by sorcery and seduction, their wild natures are primed for release . . .
For a thousand years she has haunted him -- Ariana, Queen of the Ilinas, a beauty of mist and light. His love, his life mate . . . Kougar believed her lost to him forever, until the truth of her stunning betrayal left him bitter and hungry for revenge. Now she alone holds the power to save two trapped and desperate Feral Warriors.
Ariana, caught in a deadly battle of her own, is neither the soulless creature Kougar believes her to be nor the savior he seeks.
And when darkness threatens to annihilate both races, the greatest danger of all becomes the glorious love Kougar and Ariana once shared. A love that must never rise again. A love that has never died.

Not my favorite of this series. I can't quite put my finger on the exact reason, but I found myself skimming pages of internal dialogue with Kougar and Ariana. Their love story did not spark anything for me. I was way more interested in the characters around them. It almost seemed like this book was just a bridge to get you to something else, maybe the next book. I really wanted to see more of Wulfe and Natalie's interaction. Even though she has been sent back to her real human life, maybe she will return to make Wulfe happy. And why couldn't Ariana free the other spirits trapped so that they may find new feral warriors? All in all, this story left me scratching my head, and bored enough that I am not sad its over. I am by no means giving up on this series, not all the books will be "hits" and I'm looking forward to seeing who's story is next, maybe Hawke, or Wulfe?
