The most combative - and tormented - of all the Ferals, Jag is a predator who has always hunted alone until daemons begin to terrorize the human population. To stop them, he partners with Olivia, a flame-haired Therian temptress as strong as she is beautiful. But Olivia is no ordinary immortal. The survivor of a vicious supernatural attack, she possesses a deadly and forbidden skill - one that must remain hidden, especially from the powerful Feral Warriors. As Jag and Olivia's sensual dance of dominance and seduction gets wilder and hotter, a dark force sets its sights on Olivia, threatening to destroy everything she has vowed to protect. And the only one who can save her soul is the arrogant jaguar shifter she lusts for but dares not love. Contains mature themes.

"The ending will leave readers satisfied, yet desperate to learn more." (RT Book Reviews)
I first read this book and the series! But hearing it is a whole new experience! The narrator is one of the best I've heard so far! And this is one of my favorite from this series!
This book like the others is HOT. I enjoyed the fight between Jaguar and his mate Olivia. I love that their relationship is different and it sued them. Like how they show their feelings for each other. I love it that Olivia love and understand Jaguar from the get go.😄 my favourite quote is "I don't want a tame house cat" "no one going to knocking down the door " and last but not least "if you're not going to join the fright then get out"😊☺️😚

SO MUCH BETTER (than the first two, and they were GOOD)!I mean the above as a compliment, truly; this one was simply at a different level! Can't wait for next one!If you want only adjectives: compelling, gratifying, passionate
Paenther, because he was developed almost perfectly. Excellent use of backstory (enough to want to love him, but not too much to distract or lose focus) and superb emotional growth as he progressed from hating Skye to loving her (see comments below).
The audiobook was once again narrated by the fabulous Rob Shapiro. His ability to change his voice to differentiate characters is superseded only by his uncanny ability to breathe precisely the perfect amount of emotion into every character...never over the top, but always reaching an emotional apex. Unlike my reading of almost all other books, I actually prefer the audiobooks to the print titles in this series, all thanks to the excellence of this narrator
So many! If I had to pick one, it would be Viper's confession that he didn't know if he could ever recover from the heinous things he'd done under the influence of dark magic, and that he stayed in his room all day and hunted evil alone at night.
I purchased the Audible audiobook version of this title and listened to it in order (a must-do for this series); SEE READING ORDER at end of review.I must say that author Pamela Palmer has truly hit her stride in this third book in her Feral Warriors series. I enjoyed the first two entries and reviewed them considering my opinions of both positive and negative aspects of the stories and the writing, but in PASSION UNTAMED I was pretty much blown away by the strength of character, story, and expression. This story was so exciting, so rewarding at certain times and utterly heartbreaking at others, that I found myself completely swept away. Palmer's character development skills here far outweigh what she displayed in her first two titles in the series; Paenther (a black panther Feral Warrior shifter) and Skye (a Mage witch who is also an Enchantress, able to "call" any animal with a special empathic connection) are her most rounded and sympathetic characters to date, and both of their backstories leave the reader heartbroken and utterly invested in these characters. I was desperate for Paenther and Skye to find their HEA, but Palmer took her time getting them to first acknowledge the goodness in each other and then start to understand each other, and that was anticipation at its best! The alternating points of view from each of their perspectives gave us a fabulous glimpse into the mind of Paenther, who had been tortured and permanently scarred by a Mage witch in his past, and who truly hated Skye for encapturing him. Watching Paenther's feelings change from hate to grudging respect, admiration, and finally love, was a beautiful thing! Concurrently, Palmer develops the story of the lost demon blade, the efforts of the dark magic practitioners to raise their evil deity, and the whereabouts of Viper. Viper's story is heartbreaking, and Palmer handles it in a sophisticated, thoughtful way, while leaving Viper's future still to be written, and the reader wanting more, more, more!The audiobook was once again narrated by the fabulous Rob Shapiro.

I cannot wait to begin the fourth book; Paenther's story has made me decide to download the next audiobook immediately, and I can only hope that Jag's story will be as thrilling, passionate, and touching as Paenther's. Long live the Feral Warrrios!
