Shattered by recent nightmarish events, Hawke feels his bond with his animal spirit weakening-and once it breaks, he’s finished. The arrival of Faith sends his life spinning even further out of control, for although she delights him and inflames his deepest primal passions, she’s promised to Maxim, the newest Feral Warrior.
Faith is drawn to Hawke from the start, but Maxim holds her in his thrall and has secretly bent her to his malevolent will. Though gravely damaged, Hawke is the only one who can end Faith’s slavery and protect the Feral Warriors from Maxim’s evil designs. But first they both must embrace the wild – and surrender body and soul to a forbidden, all-consuming ecstasy.

In this sixth installment of Palmer’s Feral Warriors series, we have Hawke is recovering from the events that take place in the previous book. He isn’t doing well with his animal, but then he has never really trusted the Hawke inside him.
Faith is a Therian, but she has live among humans for most of her life. She moves all around Europe helping street kids get their lives together. While out and about she stumbles upon Maxim, a newly marked Feral Warrior, and there is an instant connection between the two. They both feel it and assume that they are mates. Faith is then, some what reluctantly, forced to accompany Maxim to the US to join the Feral Warriors.
Once the pair arrives at Feral House, there is also an instant attraction between Hawke and Faith, but she is with Maxim, even if it has only been for a day. This makes things very difficult for the three of them. Maxim is an arrogant, douchebag who thinks he should be living as a king. He complains constantly about the lack of formality, the size of his room, and is extremely jealous of Hawke’s attention to Faith. Hawke is doing his absolute best to be a gentleman and just be nice to Faith and not do anything to even attempt to poach from another warrior, no matter what he wants, but Maxim still can’t keep his jealously under control.
Ecstasy untamed‘s story is the darkest story that I’ve read by Palmer. If you’ve read her Vamp City novels, you know that is really saying something. I was amazed at how far she took things in this book. The torture that she forces her immortal, quickly healing characters made my jaw drop.
Feral House is full of testosterone and some mistrust between the Ferals. There are a bunch of new characters that show up at Feral House. Some are better than others. There is a ton of action, especially in the second half of the book. There are some things that happened that I was not expecting.

My review - 3.5 Hearts
The issue that I had with Rob Shapiro‘s narration in the previous book, was not an issue with this one. In the previous book, he lowered his voice so much for the women that I couldn’t hear what they were saying. I don’t know why he did that with that book, because he hadn’t done it with the previous books and didn’t with this one. He really brought out the darkest that was in Maxim and really helped me to feel what an evil bastard that guy was.
