EDGE OF HUNGER
Byrd easily makes the jump from category fiction with the launch of her darkly enticing Primal Instincts series. She does an excellent job setting up the parameters of her world and introducing a host of fascinating characters. Hang on, this is going to be a thrilling ride!
What Ian's mother never fully explained was that their bloodline is supernatural and that Ian's dark dreams are because the Merrick portion of him is coming to life. Centuries ago, the Merrick fought the evil Casus, who were banished but not destroyed. Now a Casus has escaped and plans to kill Ian and those he loves ... unless Ian can accept the Merrick within.
