The Thrall concept is yet another variation of the “vampire” theme. Instead of being infected by a “virus” the Thrall is a parasite which takes over the body and mind of its host for a few years. Eventually the body wears down and a new host is selected to receive the next queens eggs. Additionally the Thrall lives in a hive culture with a single reproductive queen leader and her drones the “hosts”. Humans all considered the “Prey” that feeds the hive the blood they need. Humans can also be Herd if they voluntarily feed the Hosts.

Kate Reilly is an internal courier with martial arts and defense training. She has previously defeated and killed a queen to try and save an ex lover, so she is given Not Prey status. This status is established with a set of rules that outline the Thrall/Not Prey status. Basically they are not supposed to use her as food, but the Thrall queens are scared of Kate and resent her status.

Tom is a calendar man sized hunk and a werewolf who comes to Kate to rent an apartment. They hit it off quickly, but Tom is not all he seems, nor are his initial motives towards Kate of his free will.

When a queen goes rogue and decides that she wants Kate to replace her as the next queen, things get ugly for Kate. Additional the local werewolf pack draws Kate into the fold.

There is a lot of action and an interesting new twist in this paranormal. I enjoyed it and plan on reading the next one in the series.
