Love Remi

I love Remi and Laith’s relationship. A few questions are answered, but leaves you with more. Looking forward to book 3. The narrator did a great job with each character.

Good but was a tad confusing initially...

This book picks up soon after book 1 ends. I listened to an audio book version of it. The narrator did a great job giving different voices to the characters.

This book confused me a bit though. While it revealed some information on the story and the world, it also added more confusion for me. To me, the flow of the story wasn't as great as book 1 though. It jumped scene to scene couple of times and the flow felt forced. The world building isn't huge but it gives enough insight into what is going on. I would still like to know why and a bit more though. We do find out about the 4 major powers/gifts of some shifters and how Remi's brother is part of it as well.

I liked that Remi and Laith's story moved ahead a bit. They are still pretending to be fake couple and eventually, it turned into a real relationship. Victoria's role in this whole thing was a surprised that I did not see coming. Same goes for Dean Mardone's part became clearer as in, why she acts the way she does. I wasn't expecting that and it sort of made it tolerable. However, it felt like the book jumped weeks after that scene.

I am surprised by Winter's turnaround and definitely want to see where it leads. Remi finds out more about her brother and it is definitely heartbreaking for her to see how her brother truly was. Of course, the book ended at a cliffhanger but it sort of ended abruptly for me. I am not sure where the next book leads and I do want to find out.

Such a good continuation

I really enjoyed this story. Laith and Remi are so adorable. I love these two so much. They are so adorable and cute. A few things get maybe answered but there are a lot of new things to figure out. A lot of new mysteries are popping up for Remi to try to figure out. There is more about Remi’s brother and the tooth and claw society, I need the next book and want to know more about all of this and what is going on.

Great paranormal story

I enjoyed this paranormal story. 2nd in series. I haven't read 1st one and it alluded to parts of it, but did pretty good explaining so you weren't lost. Now I need to read the 1st one.

Loved It!

I really enjoyed this book--more so, because Laith and Remi's relationship is both hilarious and adorable! I really liked how one of the mysteries from book 1 was partially solved, while a few more pop up, keeping Remi and Laith busy. The twist on Remi's brother was nicely incorporated and I'm seriously looking forward to listening to book 3! The narration was really good too! She definitely brought the story and the characters to life.
Loving this series so far!

Great book and Wonderful audiobook

I have really enjoyed this book series so far and it is written beautifully by Marisa Claire. I sometimes worry about the audiobooks because the person reading the book does not portray the characters right but in this case I didn’t need to worry. Brittany Goodwin does a masterful job of bringing the characters to life for this series. Highly recommended!

My attention was captured

I listened to book 1 of this series in a day because it was so intriguing so I hoped this book would be just as good. I was not disappointed. The twists and turns kept me invested and I even stayed up late to finish the audio book. Now I must get the next one because I NEED to know what happens next. Very well written book!

Just What is the Tooth & Claw Society?!

The questions about the Tooth & Claw Society increase, along with who is involved and who can be trusted. The second semesger starts, with new pupils, new threats and shocking revelations. I really loved the snark that Remi & Laith throw at each other, and the way they fight together to protect their new pack. Narrator Brittany Goodwin is a pleasure to listen to, as always. I hope it won't be long until book 3 is out, this series is becoming one of my favourites!

Another fantastic story!!

Wow what a read!!! 2nd book of the series and it blew the first one away!! The first one was excellent but this topped it. I finished it in 2 reads. The plot thickens, the characters are evolving and overall I cannot wait to see what happens next. Only bad thing about this book..... it was too short!!!! I wanted it to go on and on! Another great book by a fabulous author.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I have provided this voluntary review

Oh Snap!!

This series just keeps drawing me in. That ending though!! It is on heck of a cliffhanger. I loved the relationship growing between Remy and Laith. Can't wait to see what happens next. I need it like yesterday.

Tense and engaging sequel

Remi is still reeling from her first semester at Gladwell Academy. Not only had she and Laith discovered a list of students to be ‘culled’ on a dean’s desk with Victoria’s name among them, she also found out that the Gladwell’s had lied to her about the whereabouts of her missing twin, Rahm who had in fact been admitted at Gladwell Academy a year earlier and been culled for bad behaviour.

For the past five nights, Remi’s sleep has been interrupted by visits from the spectre of Rahm, urging her to follow him. But is he real or a figment of her imagination?

With Ms. Shirley’s health deteriorating, the Gladwell’s are searching for a replacement for the gift of scent-sight in order to locate new shifters. Having been warned by Ms. Shirley to keep her gift a secret and the Gladwell’s already suspecting her of having the gift, Remi is finding it difficult to maintain an act.

Tragedy strikes - or was it murder? - when Remi attempts to find answers over her twin’s disappearance. Will a message left for Remi at the time of their death provide answers?

Meanwhile the arrival of three new bear shifters stirs up animosity between the wolves and bear which threatens the fragile peace between both species. Is something more sinister at play? Just what secret is Rahm trying to reveal to his long sister and most importantly, can he be trusted?

Tooth and Claw Society is the second explosive instalment of the Academy of Shifters series. Once more the author has concocted an enjoyable suspenseful plot powered by adept character development and relentless pacing. There were so many jaw dropping and surprising twists of events that it’s become apparent that nothing and no one at Gladwell Academy is what they seem.

I was impressed with the author’s world building in which she has introduced four gifts/curses in the shifter world; That of Manips, Beserkers, Kinetics and Scent-Seers. While Manips have the ability to get inside someone’s mind without them ever knowing, Beserkers can selectively share their emotions and influence others. Kinetics, like Rahm, have the ability of projection. They can use someone’s mind like their own personal projector to make themselves appear to them in living colour. Sight Seers are not only able to sniff out a persons true intentions but can steal the memories of the dead.

The character development was exceptional. Remi and Laith’s relationship grows leaps and bounds and I loved her banter with Winter Davenport who has oddly taken it upon herself to look out for her. Ms Shirley’s backstory was heartbreaking as was an incident from Dean Belhollow’s past. I was shocked by the new development in Dean Mardone’s arc as I didn’t anticipate it at all. With so many doubts cast on the good guys, it’s hard to know who to really trust at all and I wonder whether Belhollow is on the level too what with the bear shifters suddenly acting rebellious.

As with the first book, it’s the author’s infectious sense of humour that continues to charm and thoroughly entertain. All in all this was a well crafted, thoroughly entertaining instalment with another cliffhanger that has ensured that this reader will be diving into the follow up book.

I received an advanced free audible copy of the Tooth and Claw Society and I am voluntarily reviewing it. The narrator did a good job in bringing the characters and story to life with her clear, concise delivery.

Intriguing Book

This is a great second book in this series. It is fast paced and packs lots in but, still leaves lots of unanswered questions leaving you desperate for more. The great narration makes this book enjoyable and easy to listen to.
