"I am totally hooked"
Faythe Saunders is the first female werecat enforcer and
future Alpha of her Pride. It isn't easy and she has the
scars to prove it but she is getting stronger and stronger
each day. The fight between the Prides is helping her learn
what she needs to know to become Alpha but then a new enemy
flies in from the sky and everyone is clueless.
Still injured from her last battle, Faythe nearly doesn't
manage to save Kaci from the attack that leaves the Pride
helpless and scared. Prisoners in their own home, the Pride
realise who must have set this new enemy onto them but they
are not sure how. So Faythe is busy trying to keep her
personal life in order while making choices that could see
them all killed or have them walking away in one piece.
Whatever happens, there will be casualties and losses.
Faythe's main concern is that the people she loves the most
are not among those hurt. Even if it means she herself gets
hurt or killed in the process.
Shift is the fifth book in the Werecat series and it was,
like every book in the series so far, amazing! The new enemy
the Pride were up against took me by surprise and I loved
getting to know a new side of the world this series is set
in. The story was fast-paced, action-packed and sometimes a
little terrifying but I couldn't stop picking this up to
read at each chance I got.
The whole Mark versus Jace aspect of this book also kept me
on tender hooks. I was constantly hoping that Faythe would
finally sort the problem out but of course something always
got in the way. Now I am eager to see what will happen in
the next book, Alpha. Will Faythe really have to make a
If you haven't already tried this series then I recommend it
highly. This is one of those series that you read to keep
but then buy copies for all your friends. I am totally
hooked and love Faythe, Kaci and the rest of the Pride and I
don't know how I manage to wait months for the next
installment. Rachel Vincent is a must read and writes some
of the best books in the genre. Exciting and satisfying,
Shift shows that this series is just going to keep getting
better and better.
