Overview

Attempted Murder. Passion. Betrayal. It’s a dog-eat-dog world.

A Novella of the Elder Races

Claudia Hunter is on a road trip through the Nevada desert when she sees the body of a dog on the side of the highway. Pulling over to investigate, she quickly determines that the enormous animal is clinging to life. While working to save him with the help of the local vet, Claudia realizes there’s something about the creature that seems more. Other. Wyr. Which makes this case of animal cruelty attempted murder.

Too injured to shape shift, Luis Alvaraz is reluctant to tell Claudia what he knows about his attack, afraid it will only make her a target. But the sheriff is corrupt, and his attackers know Luis is alive and vulnerable. To make matters worse, a sandstorm is sweeping into town, and if they're going to survive the night, Luis will have to place all his trust in Claudia.

Warning: Take a gorgeous man temporarily stuck in the dog house, add a strong, take-no-prisoners woman, mix in encroaching enemies and a raging sandstorm and stir to combine. Enjoy with a freshly opened can of whoop-ass.

I LOVE Thea Harrison. Once again she has written a great novel. Heroine is 40 years old and knows her place in the world, no confused weak kid here. She is in the lead.. Great read...

Natural Evil by Thea Harrison is a ebook novella that is part of the Elder Races series. It is a great story to tide you over until a new full-length novel comes out. Claudia is a very strong female, former Special Services, who has some paranormal talent, not much, but enough to help her get an very large injured dog she finds along the road into her car. The dog has been shot. She knows there is something about the dog that suggests it is more than it seems. Luis is a a shifter whose alternate shape is a dog. He is too injured to shift back when Claudia finds him. He is younger than Claudia but knows she is what he wants. For a short novella this has plenty of action, tension, and romance. I would have liked a little more about to two and how they worked things out but all in all an enjoyable read. I hope we see a little more of Claudia and Luis in a future Elder Races novel.

Bummer A boring novella and Im left feeling disappointed again. I absolutely fell in love with Dragon Bound and nothing in this series has come close to being that good. I just hate comparing the rest of the series to that 1st one, but I cant help it. The plot was so boring and the characters were underdeveloped, unbelievable and totally forgettable. I think I actually feel asleep while I was reading.   Claudia rescues a dying dog on the side of the road and turns out hes really a Wyr named Luis and then they both investigate what happened. Really? Claudia’s character was at least a little bit interesting, smart, independent and capable of taking care of herself. Because Luis spent the first half of the book as a dog, his character wasn’t really developed and I didn’t feel that they had time to get a believable romantic connection. His character was completely forgettable. This has a HFN ending and I will be happy to never have to read anything about Claudia and Luis again.  Just because I still have faith in Harrison(not much faith left) Im still going to give the rest of the series a try.  Im not sure how much more I can take.

I have loved every book I have ever read by Thea Harrison but this one was just not even close to the same quality as her other books. The story felt rushed especially near the end. It was very disappointing.

Really love this series. This Novella gives us a glimpse into the lives of "ordinary" people who inhabit the world of the Elder Races. I particularly liked how the herione wasn't "magically" transforrmed, she had to accept the limitations on her love and proceeded anyway. Wonderful, wonderful story.
