I love the Shadowcat Nation Series and am very happy to be learning about Tieryn in Tieryn’s Fury by Abigail Owen.
Check out this gorgeous cover!

Tieryn’s Fury smacks of realism in the shapeshifter world of The Shadowcat Nation. This series can stand alone, but I love them so much I would recommend beginning at the beginning. ‘grinning’
Politics and power hungry Alphas of 10 Dares will face off.
Tieryn is a Healer, a princess that is unprepared for the battle ahead, but she has a secret, one she has never told a soul.
Shane is her bodyguard. He’s hot, sexy and irritating.
Gods and Goddesses, shapeshifters…cougars, lions and mountain lions, polar bears, pumas, deer, grizzlies…healers, seers, seducers…so many wonderful glimpses into the world of the supernatural.
The descriptive writing makes it easy to relate to the story. A couple examples:
She is a ‘cheerful waker’. Don’t ya just hate those people who wake up ready to face the day?
‘Cub shifter in cat form….swatting a ball’. Such a cute visual
Tieryn’s Fury spotlights Tieryn’s time to shine in the Shadowcat Nation Series and Abigail Owen does a fabulous job letting her.
The on again, off again, romance can be frustrating at times, but not surprising. Isn’t that like real life? I love how they sexually torture themselves, especially in the swamp.
The verbal, snarky foreplay makes me smile. Their playful tumble in the snow had me grinning like a fool. Abigail describes the ‘wonderful’ smell of New Orleans, and anyone who has ever been there knows I say that with sarcasm. I love that she mentioned a helicopter-parent. I heard that for the first time on the Christley’s TV show.
Based on Shane’s experience, ‘fate just loved to kick you down and then kick you in the balls.’ He sounds like a realist to me.
I have loved this series from the very beginning, with Andromeda’s Fall. The characters are complex, loving, giving, sacrificing, some greedy, some selfish and out to get what they feel is theirs for the taking. Gage is the most surprising character to me and that proves why he would be a great leader. I didn’t see that outcome.
Their world is believable, at times making me forget they are magical. I can hardly wait to read Seneca’s story.
Could these novels stand alone? Sure, but why would you want to miss anything. so I recommend starting at the beginning.
What a damn nice surprise read that was! I really loved it all. From the suspense, to the uncomfortable not knowing what the hell to believe, to the ending. I was pretty captivated throughout the entire book. About halfway through the book the direction shifts a good bit and while I was good with the direction, it could have also gone a completely different direction and I think I would have been just as pleased. I do wish we would have gotten some dual POV, especially towards the end, or perhaps even switching completely at Part 2.
Also - I am kinda disappointed that the next in this series is FF. Yikes. I mean whatever floats your boat, but that does not interest me at all. Too bad really as I really enjoyed this author.
