Review by wyvernfriend
Brenna Shane Kincaid was abducted by a psionicly powerful psychopath. She was damaged both inside and out, the physical damage is taking less time to heal than the psychological damage. Judd Lauren is another damaged soul, he's been told that losing control could kill other people, and it did, once accidentally. He has killed again and he really tries not to feel, there are feedback loops set up in his mind that will kill him if he becomes too emotional. He has being helping Brenna heal and he is starting to care for her, too much. There's someone who is trying to kill them, someone who appears to be inside their very sanctuary. There are also complicated plots to try to get the shifters infighting and someone has plans with impants and the psy.I liked the relationship between Brenna and Judd, they accepted that things weren't going to be easy, they had moments of terror and Brenna's trauma wasn't just dismissed easily, and you know at the end that there will still be aftermath. It wasn't an easy romance, but it was interesting.

Loved Judd, loved Brenna, loved the plot and the politics. I can't wait to read the rest of this series. The remaining books with new covers haven't been released yet and I don't think I can wait. Time to go ebook shopping!
