Berserker by Kitty Thomas


I have a special power: the ability to calm a berserker, but I’ve been warned never to use it. My mother said: “If you see a berserker in a rage… not your monkeys, not your circus. Get the hell away. They’re too dangerous, and you’ll lose your freedom.”

But the thing is… we’re flying 30,000 feet in the air in a speeding aluminum cage, and there’s a berserker raging out in the aisle beside me. Security won’t be able to hold him. They won’t be strong enough. They have no idea what they’re dealing with. And if he gets a taste of blood, he’s going to rampage through the entire plane leaving a path of death and destruction, including me.

I’ve never used my power before. I’m afraid it won’t work and he’ll turn on me, but I know all too well what these beasts are capable of. There’s nowhere to go, and he’s just getting started. I have one option: Calm him, and hope I can escape when the plane lands.


I’ve been a fan of Kitty Thomas since I read Perfection last year.  She knows how to pack a punch in a novella that leaves you breathless and wanting more. You are pulled into an extremely fascinating chase that only has one provocative ending.

Chloe is a valkyrie and has always been told to run from berserkers if she ever met one. Unfortunately, you can’t run far on an airplane so she stops a volatile situation that could get everyone killed. Doing that, she has sealed her fate with Cade who is possessed by a very angry berserker. Once she touched him, she became marked for his mate. Now he just has to catch her.

There are actually three beings in this book: Chloe, Cade, and the Berserker. Cade’s body is a vessel for the Berserker. My heart aches for Cade who is a noble and kind being who is possessed by an angry and vicious entity that only Chloe can tame.  I love Chloe’s funny inner musings as she tries to deal with an inescapable fate. Her attraction to Cade is separate from her lust for the Berserker and when she finally accepts her destiny it is a fitting end.

I love this fast-paced, full-bodied book condensed into 95 pages of exhilaration, anticipation, and fulfillment.

KITTY THOMAS writes dark sexy stories that play with power. She began publishing in early 2010 with her bestselling COMFORT FOOD and is considered one of the original authors of the dark romance/erotic subgenre.

This work is meant for an adult audience. The author does not endorse or condone any of the behavior carried out by characters in her stories. She believes fiction is meant to challenge the reader, not teach morality. If you haven’t developed morals by the time you start reading erotica, it’s probably too late.

Kitty writes standalone novels except for the Pleasure House Books which are interlocking standalones.
