Shift (Shifters #5)
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 pea ...more

This is the 5th book in the Shifters series so it is very difficult to review without giving spoilers for previous books. If you're new to the series I strongly recommend you don't read this review as this series really should be read in order - why not check out the reviews for Stray instead. This is my favourite Urban Fantasy series though so I'd definitely recommend you check it out!
This book continues the story just a couple of weeks ...more
*running around in a panic* Arrrrghhhh! I shouldn't have read this so soon. I thought it would take me several days to finish, but I burned through 300 pages this evening because I couldn't put the book down. Now I have to wait until Alpha comes out later this year.
As always, this book is f ...more
Ok ok… I listened via audiobook, I loved the book it was great it goes with the story but the bird people speak…. Eeeeek grates on my nerves something bad…
Mark and Faythe have some talking to do; Jase and Faythe have some talking to do. A lot of words need to be spoken.
Malone is taking strides against the Pride, and I think the next book shit is going to hit the fan.
Faythe has some pretty bad injuries in this book and you gotta feel for her pain. I mean OUCH!
KC is going to have ...more
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 out till the last book and yet I know who she will chose, I mean really it's no contest. Even if you prefer the underdog (ha or cat!) you still know exactly who Faythe will pick. And it bugs me that it's being dragged out hurting everyone more. I really detest love triangles.
But, now that I have gotten my cr ...more
Tam bu seri daha iyi olamazdı derken yine Rachel beni şaşırttı. Bu kitap diğer bütün kitaplardan farklıydı. Bu sefer ;kedicikler vs. gökkuşlar .
Kısaca kitabın konusu şöyle ; Faythe'in Gururu savaşa hazırlanıyordur. Üç gün içinde Malorn'un Gururuna saldıracaklardır ve ortalık kan gölüne dönecektir. Ethan yoktur ve herkes onu çok özlüyordur. Manx ve diğer tabby'ler korunmak amaçlı saklanacaklardır a ...more
This book is hard to review with out spoiling the storyline, but here are some random thoughts.
I have never been a fan of Faythe's mother, but in the first part of this book she finally steps up and becomes t ...more
WOW!!! I could so read a Thunderbirds series too. Damn. So awesome!!!
Shift takes up immediately where Pride ended: The South Central werecat pack is divided and a battle is coming. There's also retribution to be made for a death, and although she's trying to put it off, Fayt ...more
When I first started reading about the Thunderbirds, I was kinda like--uh-oh, where is she taking this one? What was I thinking? Of-course it 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 t ...more
Thunderbirds, or werehawks as I described them to my ...more
Where to start? Let’s just say a certain megalomaniac, misogynistic werecat has a vision to become the head of the Territorial Council, no matter what. He plays mean and dirty and always seems to be a step ahead of Faythe’s pride.
Faythe, Faythe, Faythe. What can I say? I do like Faythe. I like her feistiness, her determination, and her developing diplomatic skills. Her timing sucks. Her ability to predict the consequences of her actions needs improvement. The dreaded love ...more
Until a new threat appears – Thunderbirds. None of them are used to fighting the birds and they scrabble desperately to find some way to stop the assault
As ever, Faythe and her fellow tabbies are prime targets.
This book has opened the world building of the series a lot more to include another of the shapeshifter creatures that occupy this world. The Thunderbirds
It would have been really nice if “Thunderb ...more
Please refrain from keeping relationship-threatening secrets to yourself. Please. Because we all know that at some point tensions are going to boil-over and shit will hit the fan.
Use that brain - the one you have somewhere deep within the recesses of your head, past the cobwebs and posters of shirtless guys. Use it and you will find life is so much easier!! Yes! Using your brain means that 95% of the time you will not end up in situations (e.g. bra ...more
I can't believe I finally got to read this book. It took me forever to read it, I know, but I finally did.
And just loved it!!!
The plot of this series is simply outstanding. If you like UF you will just adore this series. And what I like the most about it is that with every book it gets better and better. As most of my goodread friends have already read it I won't loose time writing a review saying things you have already read hundreds of times.
Just wanted to say that it was totally wor ...more
I don't want to say too much but I will disclose the following:
1) Faythe is referred to as Kaci's mother and I have no problem with that because Faythe truly acts like it. She selflessly puts her life in danger on multiple o ...more
I've never read anything by Rachel Vincent before but I have heard great things about her writing and her Faythe Saunders series. Its a series I've always wanted to pick up but with the ever growing TBR pile that I have it's another series that I have yet to get to.
It might seem odd then to start the series at book 5, but the books can be read as a stand alones so you don't need to have read anything in the series before this book.
You are dropped straight into the story. Fay...more

The bad guys just keep getting the upper hand over and over and over. If I met Calvin Malone as a real person I would not hesitate to gut him like a fish. His character reminds me of real people in the news and politics these days that just s ...more

Well, I truly love the series and Rachel Vincent is an extraordinary writer, so I began Shift.
I was so glad to see the book did not revolve around the love triangle.
The storyline was fabulous and fast moving. I was hanging on the edge of my seat waiting to find out what happens. The introduction of the Thunderbirds was fasci ...more
Why do the best series end so quickly? 6 books is nowhere near good enough for stories that are this addictive.
I know a lot of people disagree, but I really enjoy the love triangle with Marc and Jace. I feel bad for what both Marc and Jace have had to endure as a result of Faythe's indecisiveness and selfishness, but damn, it's entertaining.
I thought t ...more
In this book she's showing more thinking, and she's starting to feel like true Alpha material. Except when it comes to dealing with the love triangle with Jace and Marc. Please someone put me out of my misery here!!! I don't have a clue who she'll end up with. I've always been a Marc supporter, and now, I just ...more
