Instinctual is the second beautifully-written book in Auryn Hadley’s action-packed epic fantasy series chronicling the rise of the Iliri, a species bred by humans to be fierce protectors. Sal is the rarest of them, a full-blooded female iliri who will fight tooth, nail, blades, pikes, and shields to protect her dearest friends—also her comrades-in-arms and sometimes lovers– and to free her people.
