Things are pretty grim at Feral house, and all is not well with the warriors.  Their Radiant is gone, kidnapped, and their leader is a hot mess.  They need to get Kara back soon, not just for the radiance they all need to survive, but for Lyon’s sanity and mental stability.  If she dies, he will most certainly follow.

The prickly, rage-ridden Melisande has been a mystery since we first met her in Zee and Julianne’s story. Her history is a traumatic one, and A Love Untamed brings it all back into brutally unforgiving focus for the Ilina who has had to harden her heart and spirit to survive so much. Mel is literally an ancient, so I loved learning “firsthand” about the times before The Sacrifice and all that came just after. The burden of such a long memory and existence must be fierce, but nothing haunts Melisande more than her personal trauma and the need to maintain her shield and the cold heart that lets her keep on keepin’ on… to serve her queen and make amends with her sisters.

I loved getting to see Zee and Julianne again! Theirs was the very first Ferals story I read, Hearts Untamed, a short in an anthology called Bitten By Cupid, and where I first met my shifter crush, Jag.  Zee and Kieran/Fox have been friends for many years, and their bond is tight. Our new Fox is a charmer, all sweet, sexy, and Irish. His speech and vocabulary are well crafted, and it’s easy to imagine his deep, smooth voice lilting in the brogue that has made many a female heart flutter.

“Things are not as they seem” has been a theme throughout the Feral Warriors books, but it’s practically the anthem of A Love Untamed. Mage traps, untrusted new Ferals, and brutally drastic measures define this new turn in the series. The Feral Warriors are definitely off the rails! Secrets about the warriors you thought you knew and revelations about some who’ve lost their way fill in storyline gaps that fans of the series will relish. Melisande and Fox are lovely together, and getting to learn more about some of the unmated characters was exciting. It looks like the next book may take a break from the usual mage-focused plot; this is the first book in a long time that tied up the main storyline without leaving me gasping at an unexpected ending. Cliffhanger? But of course! The good news is you probably won’t be pulling out your hair from the suspense with this one!

As much as I’ve enjoyed the recent mage storylines, I’m glad the next book looks to be focused on some relatively new characters outside the immediate grasp of Inir and his daemon minions. While Fox and Mel are both compelling characters and I really enjoyed their interaction, their intimate scenes didn’t have the same “oomph” some of the others have had for me. I think that might be partly due to Fox being less “alpha” than the other males (he’s a charmer, a sweetheart, and a gentleman) and partly due to the emotional restrictions Mel’s past has cursed her with. Jag, the resident bad boy of Feral House, was also tamer than usual, and I missed his signature abundance of snarky banter. I loved the threads weaving history between Jag, Olivia, Fox, Melisande, Arianna, Kougar, Zeeland, and Julianna; I think this is the first time a couple has had more than one connection to the Ferals on both sides, and it made for great character-building.This 7th installment in the Feral Warriors series is a memorable gauntlet of past sins and their devastating consequences, studded with gentle humor and acceptance, and culminating in a powerful bond and the redemption of one of the most unlikely heroines of the series. While it wasn’t my favorite read of them all, it is definitely a solid contribution to an already outstandingly addicting series. A Love Untamed is a GraveTells Recommended Read!

I have read this whole series and this book is not as good as the rest...it was just an ok read. I didn't feel the emotional connection between Mel and Fox. The relationship felt forced and the love story rushed. Will probably still continue to read this series and hopefully it will improve with the addition of some new characters introduced in this book. Still waiting for Wulfe & Natalie's story.

    Four stars for the love story only

    Ive read this whole series and have mostly enjoyed it. However, while i dont mind the sex between the ferals and the women destined to be their mates, i am really tired of the fact that most of those mates have had countless men with no holes barred. Its getting old. It seems so casual and irreverand that i am just not liking this series anymore

    As a fan of the Feral Warriors I really enjoyed this book! It isn’t perfect but it is an enjoyable addition to this great paranormal romance series. There were just a few things that I really didn’t like…

    It is mentioned that one of the evil Feral Warriors is bad because he is a pedophile. The good news is that they don’t go into any real details about this because if there had been I wouldn’t have been able to finish this book. This kind of thing disgusts me and I do not have the stomach to read about it.

    The only other thing I didn’t like was how much of a playboy Fox was even after he had met Melisande and had started feeling something for her. I get it that it wasn’t love at first sight for him but for him to be such a flirt got on my nerves a bit.

    Otherwise A Love Untamed has an interesting plot that kept me so interested I didn’t want to put it down. It was so nice to see the other couple together and I am can’t wait for the next book in this series to be released!
