Sienna is kidnapped after discovering that the lab she works for is conducting experiments on shifters and she tries to free them.  Warrick is part of a unit that is also trying to free the shifters and Sienna’s childhood friend.  Warrick makes a decision that changes all their futures. 

The first book in the Savage series, Savage Hunger, has lots of intrigue and emotional ups and downs.  The author keeps you on your toes as you read this story.  Knowledge of the shifters is kept to a very small group of humans, of which Sienna’s father is one, and is the only one that can help the shifters. 

Trust is a big issue for all concerned and there is a very big surprise about Sienna toward the end of the book.  The characters are ones you will either love or hate, but your feelings may change as you read.  All the shifters live under a very strict code that can result in some harsh penalties if broken.  Warrick breaks two of the most critical, which results in some interesting soul-searching among the shifters. 

The author created some very realistic scenarios that I could actually picture in my mind. She also threw in quite a few twists that kept you wondering at times. The heat factor between Sienna and Warrick is intense, though there are times I wanted slap both of them to knock some sense into them.   

This is the first book by this author I have read and I am looking forward to the next book in this series.

Hated this book with a seething pashion. It was derivative and the heroine TSTL with a Britney-esque 'oops I did it again' way with killing off and injuring her side in moments of thoughtlessness which her boyfriend lets slide by with she didn't mean to really. Also can we give up on the virgin = better thing. This book has a brilliant cover that is wasted onthe story
