Feral Warriors Series #7

9 hrs and 15 mins

Paranormal Romance - genre

The newest member of the elite Feral Warriors brotherhood, Fox is eager to prove himself on the front lines of battle against the Daemons. When paired with the legendary Ilina warrior Melisande, he expects the fierce beauty to quickly fall under the spell of his quite considerable charm. Instead, he finds himself spellbound by a woman who is his match in every way.

Beneath Melisande’s brittle exterior lies centuries of pain and a violent hatred of all shape-shifters – a hatred that slowly crumbles after she and Fox are caught in a deadly and cunning Mage trap and she glimpses a surprising depth in her far-too-seductive partner. Their survival demands unconditional trust – and their salvation surrender to a wild, untamed love.

A Love Untamed Audiobook Publisher’s Summary

Melanie S.

A Love Untamed (4 Stars)

A Love Untamed is  the seventh and second to last story in the Feral Warriors series. In this story, we have Kieran, who is now known as Fox. He has joined the elite Feral Warriors during a very turbulent time. The newest Feral Warriors aren’t all that they seem, so the original warriors don’t know who to trust.

Melisande is second in command of the Ilinas who we met in Hunger Untamed. She is a woman who is all warrior with no conscience. She got that way after suffering from terrible abuse. Her lack of feelings was the only way she was able to survive. Fox cracks the ice, but Melisande has to determine if she is willing to go on feeling. It is much harder to do her job when she has feelings.

In this story, Kara is stolen by the mages and tainted ferals. It is up to Fox, Ilinas and the Feral Warriors to find her. They also have to figure out who is tainted and who isn’t. The majority of the story is focused on Fox and Melisande as they fight their way through the many different worlds of the mage trap. There is also a side story with two of the new ferals going off on their own to prove that they aren’t tainted.

This series continues on it’s dark path, as one of the darkest, if not the darkest, paranormal romance series I’ve ever read. The world-building around this darkness is so well developed that you are completely immersed into the dark world that Palmer has created. I can’t wait to see how she plans to wrap up this series.

A Love Untamed Audiobook Narration (3.5 Stars)

I was worried that I would have the issue with this narration that I had when Rob Shapiro narrated Hunger Untamed, the other story that featured the Ilinas. In that book, he whispered the female voices, that was not an issue with this book. I continue to think he does a good job with this series. You can always tell which character is the one speaking, which is very important to me. I do listen to this at an increased speed because he does speak a little slow for me, but the increased speed works perfectly, in my opinion

  1. It’s interesting and great to see that after 7 books, it’s still good. Not often the case. I should try a book by this author, I heard a lot about them. thank you!

    • If you like your books on the darker side, Pamela Palmer would be right up your alley. Personally, I like her Vamp City novels better, but they are not available on audio at the moment. I’m hoping they will start on them, not that they are done with this series.

  2. Args! I am seriously going to start these this year. I have them all. They sit all pretty together on my shelf. I really must. lol I kinda like that they’re a little darker than normal. Sometimes that’s just what I want 🙂

    • I like darker too. Not all the time, but mixing it in adds a lot of diversity to my reading/listening. If you get a chance, check out her Vamp City novels too. There are only two books out in that series.

  3. I have the first book in the series, but I still haven’t get to it. Dark pnr romance- it definitely sounds like smth I would like!

    • I hope you enjoy. I know, even when the romance or couple isn’t one that I liked, I still enjoyed the overall story.

  4. Great cover and yet another series I’ve got to delve into, could you please add some extra hours to the day 🙂 LOL
    Thanks for the great review!

    • I know, right? I need extra hours too. Too many great series and not enough time in the day.

  5. After meeting her at AAD a few years ago I have decided I need to give her a whirl. I think i would like her too 🙂

    • I love her Vamp City books way more than these. I’m hoping that Vamp City will be added to the audio collection soon. I’ve read the first two books and the third is coming out this year, I think.

  6. I love dark, how dark does it geT?

    • The series is pretty dark, but not the darkest thing I’ve ever read. Throughout the series, there is torture and death in many of the stories, some more than others.

  7. I LOVE that cover Melanie! it’s really making me want to listen to the book!
    But I know I shouldn’t go out of order.

    • I know some PNR’s you could read out of order, this is not a series I would recommend with that.

    • Pamela Palmer does do dark stories. I hope you enjoy.

  8. I haven’t started this series yet, but I really would like to. Hmm, I like that there is a variety in the tone of books in the series like this one is darker. Thanks, Melanie!

    • I hope you enjoy. Pamela Palmer writes some really good, but dark books (and I mean that in a good way). I like the Vamp City novels the best.

  9. Melisande is quite a name. I have so many dang series I want to try to read, who knows if I’d ever get to this. It sounds good though.

    • I know the feeling. We need more time in a day.

  10. Hmm, this sounds like another great series to feed my audio/UF/PNR addiction

    • I do like this series. I’m hoping that they will start working on her Vamp City novels on audio next.

  11. I used to review paranormal romance for Romantic Times magazine and I read/reviewed the first books in this series. It was quite good – I’m glad to see it’s still going strong.

    • It is. One book left in the series and I can’t wait to see how it all wraps up.

  12. Wow, this does sound dark. Like, the blurb depressed me. lol. The cover is interesting though.

    • It is a pretty dark series, especially for PNR. I’ve really enjoyed it though. I have the last book in the series to listen to soon, so it will be interesting to see how it all wraps up.

  13. I heard this series is good. I only follow her Vamp City series with I love. Can’t wait for the next book for that series. Great review!

    • I love that series too. I actually like it better than this one, but it isn’t available on audio yet. I’m hoping that they will start, now that they’ve done this series.

  14. Yet another new-to-me series that sounds really good! Great review, Melanie, I think I need to find out more about these Feral Warriors. I sometimes have issues with male narrators, too, because it seems like they\’re just trying too hard when it comes to the female voices.Have a fantastic Friday and happy listening 😉

    • This narrator has grown on me and is now the voice of the series. I have one book left in this series, so I can’t wait to see how it ends. I hope you get a chance to try The Feral Warriors and enjoy them.

  15. Oh I usually like dark UF so I would love to listen to a dark PNR. Hm… might have to see if I can get these. Might be right up my alley.

    • I think this would be right up your alley. They have a dark UF feel to them. All eight books are out on audio now, so no waiting. 🙂
