Book Review — Feral by Laxmi Hariharan

Thank you Author Assistant for sending me an electronic copy of this book for review.

Feral is a novella that follows the characters from the Many Lives series. For long, Maya has been coping with the fact that she is not like her family. She hasn’t been able to fit in and at times, she can’t bring herself to think like them. So when she discovers that she has been adopted, overwhelmed by the shock, she decides to leave the wilderness and her life with the pack in search of her blood relations. However, fate’s games land another blow on her when she finds answers in the last place she’d thought to look.

Even though I haven’t read the Many Lives series, I found myself able to enjoy this novella quite a lot. Maya’s frustration at not triggering the gene and joining her pack was so palpable that I was eager to understand her story. The bond between her and Luke is extremely adorable and while it would have been easy to pair the two, the author adds more spice to the story with another character.  If it had been a love triangle of sorts, I may have not given it much heed. But what irked me is how abruptly Maya’s attraction switches from one to the other. Nevertheless, the author’s writing style worked well with the genre of the novella. This put me in two minds – wanting more of her story and yet satisfied that the novella was a cute, quick read. I’m definitely looking forward to more of Maya and Luke’s story. For all those who love a good paranormal romance, I urge you to give this a try, you won’t be disappointed.

Ratings – 3 stars on 5.
