‘I think what is inside of you triggers the worst of me’

With Sirius Throme, leader of the Global Council, on the verge of invading Blackthorn – working together is the only chance of survival. But Jask is holding on to a secret that could just blow everything apart.
And so is Phia.
Will the truth destroy them all?

Jask Tao is the lycan leader of his pack in Blackthorn and he meets Sophia where she is a spitfire of a woman who in Blood Torn, before meeting the lycan leader, was on a mission to kill him and the third species leaders. I completely fell for Jask in Blood Torn by his dedication and loyalty to his pack. Jask went through some tough times and in Blood Instinct was overwhelmed with a streamline of bad things happening on top of bad things. My heart broke many times while reading what is going on in Blackthorn and several times I was so utterly upset I had to stop reading because my heart broke into so many pieces.
Sophia MacKay is such an outspoken, determined woman who she never expected to be really seen by anyone let alone the lycan leader. In Blood Instinct she has to fight the urges she has been passed on from her sister Leila in order to keep the prophecy from coming true. Sophia quickly realizes the obsticales she will face, while also dealing with many issues in Blackthorn. My wow factor in this book shot through the roof reading about halfway through!
I am completely sucked into Blackthorn and have been hypnotized by Jask Tao into falling for the lycan leader. My hopes for the next book are extremely high for Jask & Sophia to see how things pan out. I am left of the edge of my seat, biting my nails off waiting to find out how the outcome of the prophecy may or may not come true the way Sophia or Jessie have predicted.
A heart stopping, stomach turning 4.5 stars from Lindsay J. Pryor of Blood Instinct.
