He went into the Running never planning to find a mate. She was frightened, with no idea what to expect…Ready. Set. RUN.
Blythe has been summoned to be in the Running; an annual event where shifters are let out of their jails for twelve hours and released into an arena to find a mate. Every year, ten human girls are placed in the stadium, armed, and given three ways out: elude the shifters and remain uncaptured, kill one and escape, or be caught and become their captor’s mate. Forever.

Killian is a tiger shifter with a dark past that has left him cold and believing that love is a weakness. He never thought his chance would come, but this year he’s been called up to participate in the Running and will be forced to select a mate, knowing that he will never truly love her.

When the two lock eyes in the arena, a shiver of fear and lust runs down Blythe’s spine. Will she be able to escape? Does she even want to? And if she’s claimed by the hardened man staring back at her, will she be able to make him believe in love again?

Blythe is a young woman who’s ready to begin her life in earnest when her family receives a letter. Their family has been selected to send someone to The Running, and Blythe soon finds herself leaving her family to participate in this mandatory event. She soon finds herself being hunted by various shifters, each of whom is looking for a mate to capture and take back with him to the compound called Lazarus. Being captured by a tiger shifter named Killian, Blythe enters into the world of shifters and finds more than she bargained for.

Hayley Cyrus has created a world that not only has supernatural elements in the shifters but also captures a post-apocalyptic feel as well in the aforementioned Running. While Blythe is a relatively innocent and has been sequestered by being in a family without many conveniences, I still found myself wondering more about this world and at points didn’t quite understand why things were set up the way they were. The main elements of a romance were very definitely present, especially with the volatile temperaments of the confined characters The world itself just remained more of a question mark to me.

That said, though, the author does give us several strong characters and takes time to build up the various relationships that the protagonist builds as she restarts her life. Its in this area that the writer shines, and this book is a very readable diversion. As I’ve said frequently before on other reviews, I’m curious to see her further works as she (hopefully) continues on her writing career.
