Publisher's Summary

"Being the first female werecat enforcer isn’t easy. Scars accumulate, but I’m stronger in so many ways.... As for my personal life? It’s complicated. Choices worth making always are. Ever since my brother’s death and my father’s impeachment, it’s all I can do to prevent more blood from spilling. Now our Pride is under attack by a flight of vicious thunderbirds. And making peace with our new enemies may be the only way to get the best of our old foe. With the body count rising and treachery everywhere, my instincts tell me to look before I leap. But sometimes a leap of faith is the only real option."

NOTE: This review will contain spoilers if you haven't read up to book 4 in the series. Also Shift for me (and Alpha to) can be broken down into what I Loved and what I Didn't Like---there really was no in-between for me.

What I Loved: Things are getting hot in here! Seriously the action, pacing, and kick *ssness have been turned up a notch. We have spent the last 4 books getting to know all these beloved characters and this book just pulled the rug out from under us. I was a sobbing mess in a couple of different areas. I seriously was holding on for dear life during all the interactions with the Thunderbirds. Every emotion that a person can feel was brilliantly displayed in Shift and I couldn't quit listening!

What I Did Not Like: I can't stand triangles. They usually just don't do anything for me. In this case, I think it was an unnecessary level of drama. Plus, when Faythe was dealing with either Marc or Jace she reminded me too much of the character she was in book 1 (which I did not like at all). Overall, it was only a little bit of a distraction in Shift but a whole different story for Alpha.

Great Series!

This is one of the few series that just keeps getting better with each book. I discovered the series with Stray and ended up listening to all five books in one week--and I can't wait for the next book. Rachel Vincent is definitely one of my favorite authors now.

Shift

I absolutely LOVE this series!!! It is definately worth the credit! Rachel has created a world that you get immediately sucked into and when you finish one book you cannot wait for the next. I cannot wait for October for Alpha... I am disappointed that it will be the last...

Worst audio book I have ever listed to.

Good Scifi is taking an unrealistic premise (shape-shifting people in this case) and having the characters act logically and consistently with that otherwise unrealistic world. In this book the characters do and say the stupidest things I couldn't imagine anyone of any species doing or saying in any circumstances. One example is being under murderous attack by a flock of bird people and trying to figure out a way to counter them, and not seriously considering guns (in Texas of all places) as a serious or humane way to fight a group killing your people one by one (the outer pride members could have brought guns to the ranch). Although I am not a good judge of romance writing, I can't imagine this is good example of that genre either. Her earlier books had tolerable stupidity, but the series has been deteriorating and this book falls below any definition of good writing. I want my credit back.
