What they say:
‘Vampires might bite, honey, but lycans tear.’
Jask Tao, lycan leader, rules his pack with absolute dedication and demands the same loyalty in return. In the world of Blackthorn, where respect is a rare commodity, Jask has earned his – few dare to cross him, and fewer survive to tell the tale.
When he captures Sophia, a rare serryn witch whose blood is lethal to vampires, Jask knows just how valuable she can be. Despite her fiery nature, he also can’t shake the feelings that she rouses in him – feelings that he thought died along with Ellen, his mate.
Sophia knows she has to escape from Jask’s lycan compound – and fast. Inheriting her sister’s serryn powers can only mean one thing – that her family is at risk. She’ll have to get past the dangerously attractive Jask first but, scarred by memories of her mother’s murder, Sophia won’t ever give up.
Sparks fly between Jask and Sophia but, as both her family and the pack come under threat, they might just need each other if they, and their loved ones, are going to stay alive…
In this thrillingly sensual novel, Lindsay J. Pryor returns to the shadowy dystopian world of Blackthorn, where tensions are rising, the risks are high, and the most powerful loves are formed in the face of great danger.

What we say – review by Charlotte Foreman:
This is my third visit to Blackthorn and the books just keep getting better and better. It’s lucky I’m a fast reader because, once again, work flickered unfinished on my laptop, the housework went to pot and three children fended for themselves whilst I indulged . . .
This time Linsay J. Pryor throws the spotlight on the Lycans and I was thrilled – first mentioned back in book one, Jask and the rest of his species instantly intrigued me. With Sophia finding herself captured by Jask, the feisty serryn refuses to go down without a fight and the initial banter/trash talk between the pair was probably my favourite thing about the book, with some of it being hilarious.
The characters were everything I wanted and expected them to be, Jask: a dark brooding soul, dealing with his own demons and Sophia: brave, outspoken and on a mission. “Taming” her was not was Jask had expected and is the catalyst for huge changes in both their lives, which was great to follow as it unfolded. A heartbreaking twist pops up along the way that I did not see coming and had me audibly gasping and gripping my Kindle to within an inch of it’s life.
The storyline slots in with the first two books nicely and the fates of the Third species are up for grabs. Pryor’s writing, as always, is incredible and she had me from the very first page. Therefore, the Foreman household will have to brace itself once more as book four, Blood Deep, is just waiting to be downloaded.
