Feral by J.D. Roxburgh is, to be honest, a bit shocking for a paranormal read. I've felt like I've read them all, but right from the first chapter of Roxburgh's tale, I could tell I was in for something different. You view the story through the eyes of a shapeshifter. It's almost hard to tell what kind of supernatural this is. Are they a werewolf? A vampire? You find yourself asking as you live inside their head, seeing the heady and lusty world they live in and how blood drives their existence.
This is a very dangerous, passionate, and violent brand of paranormal romance. It's a story that thrives on its vitality and descriptive imagery. The experience was one of gut-wrenching and striking images that take your breath away - either in fear or lust. Roxburgh's skill is very much in the blunt and stark portrayal of the day to day moments of a supernatural creature of the night. The difference between this book and any other is that you truly FEEL like the protagonist. You experience their passion, lust, and anger. I had a blast and found it to be a fun and exhilarating romp!
Overall, Feral is a great book for those of you who aren't afraid of sex and violence in your paranormal books. Anyone who loves the likes of Laurell K. Hamilton or any of the greats in this genre will appreciate Feral for what it is; a descriptive and stark portrayal of the supernatural.
