Evious books If you re new to the series I strongly recommend you don t read this review as this series really should be read n order why not check out the reviews for Stray What Got You Here Won't Get You There: How Successful People Become Even More Successful instead Thiss my favourite Urban Fantasy series though so I d definitely recommend you check Revolutionary Networks it out This book continues the story just a couple of weeks after the ending of Prey Faythe and the rest of her Pride are still devastated by the loss of anmportant Pride member and are preparing to go to war to get their revenge and stop Calvin Malone s attempt to take over the Pride Council But attack comes n an unexpected form when they are set upon by the Thunderbirds a Flight of bird shifters who are determined to destroy the Pride The Pride have no dea why they are under attack and they are at a major disadvantage when their enemy can fly they can t afford to lose members f they are going to have a chance n the upcoming war When the Thunderbirds manage to kidnap Kaci La grasa no es como la pintan: Mitos, historias y realidades del alimento que tu cuerpo necesita / The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a it falls to Faythe to discover what they want and to figure out a way to rescue her I have been a massive fan of the Shifters series ever since I read Stray but with each book I ve been amazed thatt has managed to be better than the last Shift didn t disappoint and I was drawn nto Faythe s world from the very first page I love the way Faythe s character has grown throughout the series she still has flaws and makes mistakes but she s truly starting to show her full potential Shift Chase and Seduction is action packed from the word go and kept me on the edge of my seat until the last page I really didn t know how the book was going to end and there were some great twists that I wasn t expecting I have nodea how the relationship ssues between Faythe Marc Jace will be resolved after the events of the last book I feel for each of the characters and just can t see a way to give all three of them a happy ending The style of Rachel Vincent s writing has created an absorbing world that hooks you from the moment you pick up the book I don t think I ve ever felt so emotionally nvested n the outcome of a series before and for that reason I am both longing for and dreading the final book Alpha I m sure Rachel will manage to surpass my expectations but I really don t want my journey with Faythe Marc the Pride to come to an end If you haven t tried this series yet then I really recommend you go out and get a copy of Stray today I m sure you ll be as hooked as I am2nd ReadI m still totally addicted to this series on my second read through I have to admit I was even rritated by the triangle this time though this Saving Fable is the only series I can think of where the triangle got worsen the later books Luckily I already know who she ends up with because I remember that being extra stressful the first time around LOLThis series The Incredible Painting of Felix Clousseau is really raising my blood pressure the pack politicss uite stressful and half of the Territorial Council are complete and utter bastards There are a couple of people The Haunting of Henry Davis in particular that I m desperate to see dead but I know I have some heartbreakn store before that will happen So I gave the previous book Prey 5 stars but have dropped this one down to 4 There s one reason for this the bloody love triangle It s ridiculous and I know the whole thing will play TILL THE LAST "BOOK AND YET I KNOW WHO "AND YET I KNOW WHO last book and yet I know who chose I mean really Appeasement: Chamberlain, Hitler, Churchill, and the Road to War it s no contest Evenf you prefer the underdog ha or cat you still know exactly who Faythe will pick And t bugs me that t s being dragged out hurting everyone I really detest love triangles But now that I have gotten my cryptic I didn t want to give spoilers whinge out the way lets move on to the glowing 4 stars I did give Shift All 4 of which are because I love the fast pace and story and the addition of the Thunderbirds made the whole thing exciting I am dying to see how things turn out and I another aspect of this series I love Weight Expectations is just how much I hate the bad guy Malone Itsn t often that the bad guy evokes this kind of deep seated resentment n me but Vincent has out done herself and really created a character you can t help This was a great one to read as there was a lot of action going on and you are ntroduced to a new breed of shifter the Thunderbirds and finally Faythe has grown up enough to accept that f she s to be the Alpha she needs to make the hard decisions and live with the choices she has made This book Winter Eyes is hard to review with out spoiling the storyline but here are some random thoughtsI have never been a fan of Faythe s mother butn the first part of this book she finally steps up and becomes the person we heard she was when she was Faythe s age and how fun The Heart Rate of a Mouse (The Heart Rate of a Mouse, its Manx seems like she s getting ready to select a mate and t s nteresting who she seems leaning towardsIt also Come Away with Me innteresting how when someone like Malone wants power how evil they are willing to go to see things their way n the end I feel sorry for all those around him his wife kids and enforcers They are n a tenuous state where The Young Elites (The Young Elites, if they don t go along with him and his planst s the end of them he will do whatever t takes to come out on top The whole FaytheMarcJace love triangle Sands of the Scorpion is firmly established neither guys going to give her up Up until this book I was firmly Wolf by Wolf (Wolf by Wolf, in the camp of Marc but now have changed to Jace Ethan s death and his tryst with Faythe have changed himnto a better man one who Marc can no longer discount I can t wait for the next book to see how t all settles out Faythe ROCKS I just don t know how I am going to be able to wait for the next book Alpha It sounds like t The Eightfold Path for the Householder is the final bookn this series anyone knowWhen I first started reading about the Thunderbirds I was kinda like uh oh where s she taking this one What was I thinking Of course t was awesome It looks like the Thunderbirds will prove to be a handy dandy little ally for the Sanders Pride thank goodness because they need some powerful ammo on their side Oh and I am so glad that jackass Calvin Plancton - Aux origines du vivant. is finally being exposed for the conniving little snake hes argh he gets my blood boilingI am Team Jace all the way Don t get me wrong I like Marc too I just like Jace better and I am so pumped that he How to Stop Feeling So Damn Depressed: The No Bs Guide for Men is finally displaying his potential I am curious to see how Greg feels abou. Be the only way to get the best of our old foeWith the body count rising and treachery everywhere mynstincts tell me to look before I leap But sometimes a leap of faith s the only real option. I was going to try to write this review without spoilers from the previous books Peter in this series but I honestly don t know how to dot Too much has happened that built up to this book to leave them out I will avoid spoilers about the plot content of Shift and tread cautiously with previous books avoiding spoilers about the main mysterysuspense plot of each book Several people have asked Empty Your Cup: Why We Have Low Self-Esteem and How Mindfulness Can Help (Self-Compassion Book 1) if they can read this book without reading the previous books my answers yes you could Bids, Tenders and Proposals: Winning Business Through Best Practice (Bids, Tenders Proposals: Winning Business Through Best) if you really wanted to But I agree with Patti over at Book Addict thatf you do you are missing the full Leading Cultural Change: The Theory and Practice of Successful Organizational Transformation impact of the story The buildup and history of these characters add so much I would avoidt f you can You won t be sorryFans of this series know what a hugely mportant and controversial book Prey book 4 was Besides the devastating death of a well loved character there was shocking and totally hot smexing between Jace and Faythe Fans have high expectations of Shift and t delivers on every one of themSimply put Faythe Sanders s not the same girl she used to be Book 1 Stray Die Neurobiologie des Glücks: Wie die Positive Psychologie die Medizin verändert (German Edition) introduces her as a mouthy defiant and somewhat whiney college student Her fathers Alpha of South Central pride of werecats and tabbies female werecats are rare So Meditieren mit Musik und Klngen: Inspiration Nada Yoga incredibly rare that they are prized and used as pawnsn greedy attempts at controlling all the werecat prides Initially Faythe wants none of this system and MasterCases in Spine Surgery insists she can have a life of her own outside of the pride away from her family This seriess very much about the growth of Faythe and her finding her own path within the system her natural werecat nstincts are longing forBy the time we get to Shift Faythe s a strong determined Keepers Compendium intelligent and forward thinking tabby She no longer denies who shes or what her status means but The Man with the Golden Gun (James Bond role-playing game) [Box Set] instead works to redefinet and make t her own She s done shying away from the tough choices She Schmerzmedizin - 1000 Fragen is the first female enforcer for a pride and thrives on the decisions that will lead her to become the first female Alpha Yet shes still flawed she still makes mistakes Faythe has to face the conseuences of one of those mistakes Psychologische Homöopathie. in ShiftThe tension between Marc Faythe and Jacen this book The Viva Mayr Diet: 14 days to a flatter stomach and a younger you is overwhelming For most of this series there has been tension between Marc and Faythe could she ever just let go and be with him I was rooting for him he was strong and dependable and would let Faythe leadn her own way He surprises me Aviation Logistics: The Dynamic Partnership of Air Freight and Supply Chain in Shift andt only adds to my admiration of his character arcJace was always the fun but flirty guy who made the readers laugh I never expected him to grow so much over such a short period of time The events R High Performance Programming in Prey changed him drastically Hes no longer willing to be the fun flirty guy who s ntentions aren t taken seriously He s making a serious attempt to win Faythe s heart Scala for Java Developers in Shift and I find myself swooning over his new found Alpha ness Faiths going to have to choose and The Qur'an, Morality and Critical Reason: The Essential Muhammad Shahrur if being with both of themsn t an option I don t know what I want for herWith so much of this book riding on the relationship between Jace and Marc and Faythe I was worried the overall plot of the werecat pride conflicts would be lost I should have known better Rachel Vincent has written a dynamic fast paced action driven story that had me hanging on every word The South Central Pride Faces Central pride faces dangers from both a flight of Thunderbird shifters and Carl Malone s Pride Vermeer to Eternity intent on gaining control of the pride council Once again Faythe and her enforcers are fighting for their lives and tough decisions have to be madeThiss probably one of the longest reviews I have written and the sad thing Heaven to Betsy is that I could keep on writing I finished the book this morning and have been unable to think of anything butt all day long My heart So B.
