Review: Talon by Theresa HissongTalon (Rise of the Pride, #1) by Theresa Hissong

My name is Talon Shaw and I am the alpha of a pride of black panthers. My cat finds his mate in a human female and she wants a date! Panthers don’t date…we mate.Before my plans fall into place to court the woman who is destined to be my mate, one of my pride is taken and held for ransom.That ransom is me.I will do anything for my pride, but my little human mate puts herself in my place. When I find out that she has been taken, along with a young girl from my pride, I vow to bring them both home. My Guardians and I hunt to find my mate, save my pride, and deal out justice for those my enemy has harmed.That is…if I’m not too late to save them both.

I had never really read a shifter book. I had been told that Twilight by Stephanie Meyer was a  shifter book due to Jacob shifting into a wolf. I liked Twilight for the most part but to me if that was a shifter book I didn’t honestly want to waste my time. That to be honest was what put me off of shifter books. Wasn’t until Wanderlust while talking to a volunteer and an attending author there was I turned down the right road for shifter books. Tianna (the volunteer) told me I had to read Talon by Theresa Hissong. She reassured me that by doing so I would find a book to base my reviews of shifter romances off of. I am always down to read recommendations.

It just so happened that Talon was Free on Amazon that weekend, so I grabbed it. I am so glad I took the plunge. Tianna was completely and totally right!! Talon literally is now what I hold other shifter books up to and that is saying A LOT!!

Hissong introduces you to the Pride. In other words she introduces us to hot male/panthers. The characters are beautifully done. The story draws you in so seamlessly. Hissong makes you want to be Liberty and claim Talon as your own.

Talon starts with the world having found out about the panther shifters, Talon Shaw’s pride. They had been able to stay incognito until a couple of the younger panthers were seen shifting. This brought unwanted headlines to the shifter community. Liberty Raines is a local bar owner who has for some reason is drawn to Talon. Can they work through everything both the shifter and non shifter worlds throw at them? What about the dangers they don’t even know are lurking around them?
