Review: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...
English review: I like this world of shifters but the role of women is awful: I understood that being so few, they had to be protected but they should be seen as more than a possible mothers.
The main character had a fierce independence that made her scaped from her pride but the danger made her come back to her home and to Mark.
But the danger was not over and she must find how strong she could be...

María, I'm afraid I can't give you the buddy read points for this one because that was a GBR, and it finished at the end of August ☹

Pages: 400
Review: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...
English review: I like this one more than the first one. But it bothers me that between books and only with four months in the story we now have an explanation of why some humans change when are infected and some others don't.
I felt very sorry about Andrew. And what happened to Mercedes is terrible so I hope that now that Luiz is dead they could disarm the band trading tabbies...
Starting the third part!

María | 2107 comments Pride (Shifters, #3) by Rachel Vincent
Pages: 560 Pride
Review: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...
English review: after Miguel and Luiz I thought that nobody could be worst but I think Malone is very close.
Just when She was ready to accept her feelings for Mark they had to separate. But between Kasi and warding her father's position, she would be very busy...

María | 2107 comments Prey (Shifters, #4) by Rachel Vincent
Pages: 477
Review: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...
English Review: I love that story is more interesting with each book. It's not predictable and have some surprising turns: like Ethan's death or the tracking devices. I have to keep reading in order to know what will happen next...

María | 2107 comments Shift (Shifters, #5) by Rachel Vincent
Pages: 446
Review: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...
English Review: So not only Ethan's dead but now they are under attack by Thunderbirds?!! The plot in more interesting with politics and betrayal and obviously a very good love triangle between her Mark and Jace...
I want to know what will happen with Malone now...

María | 2107 comments Alpha (Shifters, #6) by Rachel Vincent
Pages: 477
Review: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...
English review: The end tasted like it was poor: she won the war (losing both Parker and her brother) and finally chose Marc (I have almost not doubt about the income of this love triangle), becoming the first alfha female but I wish we could read about the new council and all the new possibilities...

Review: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...
English review: A shirt but interesting story, especially as the start of a new saga.

I'm afraid that GBRs are different as they have a set start and end date ☹

Yes. I realize that now because from August all the GBR have the same set and end date.
But in the last MMChallenge I read The Secret of Ella and Micha that was a GBR that started on July 29th...


message 20: by Sarah Elizabeth (new)

Sarah Elizabeth (bookworm_sarah) | 85696 comments Mod
Yes, all GBRs run for 1 month from their start date, so a GBR which started on July 29th, would run until August 29th. We used to stagger the start dates so that people could start them all on their start date if they wanted, but we changed it for the MMC this year ☺

María | 2107 comments Lion's Share (Wildcats, #1) by Rachel Vincent
Review: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...
Pages: 340 Lion's Share
English review: Abby has a secret. Her roommate, Robyn is the first female stray in the US. But after all the had to experience in the woods, Abby knows Robyn is no ready to live under the authority of the council of Alphas. So she tried to help Robyn by herself.
The problem is that humans hunters appeared dead and Jace, as the territory Alpha, was send to investigate...

María | 2107 comments Blind Tiger (Wildcats, #2) by Rachel Vincent
Pages: 356
Review: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...
English review: while he expects the approval of the council, Titus, the first and only Alpha of the Stray Pride didn't want to do nothing to jeopardize his project. Even if Robyn, the only female stray, escaped from the council in his car.
But when Titus's little brother was infested and infecting other, Titus and Robyn went in a frenetic search for him...

María | 2107 comments Wild Card (Wildcats, #3) by Rachel Vincent
Pages: 261
English review: This novel was shorter and sweeter than the other. Maybe because the instant love of Justus and Kasi seems more volatile because they are teenagers. I like that not all is falling in love, we have action and adventure, and of course politics with a new order in the council: Titus Pride is now acknowledge. So what would happen in the next book? There are not any other female shifters and they had achieved their project for the stray Pride...

María | 2107 comments Burning Alive (Sentinel Wars, #1) by Shannon K. Butcher
English review: the 10th novel of this saga will be published this month so I'm re reading all the previous novels.
The story is set in three days: Hellen met Drake who is a sentinel, an ancient warrior who fights demons to protect the humanity and a magic world. This is the man who Hellen had seen in her visions, the one that smiles while she is burning alive. But is so much more in her vision that she doesn't know...
The epilogue is a great cliffhanger: who is the woman the demons had kidnapped? And what are the children they are talking about?

María | 2107 comments Finding the Lost (Sentinel Wars, #2) by Shannon K. Butcher
English review: Andra is an expert finding the lost, especially kidnapped kids. After what had happened to her sisters, she knows the terrible monsters that appear in the night. But the ancient warriors are a surprise, as is her attraction to Paul.
After Kate abandoned him, Paul always thought that he was not enough. The problem is that Andra also thought she was not good enough for him. And the war continued...
Fortunately, Zack and Madoc's stories seems to be in order!

María | 2107 comments Running Scared (Sentinel Wars, #3) by Shannon K. Butcher
English review: After all her mother taught to her, Lexie can't trust Zack. So her love story is strange.
Only mortal peril makes her to believe in him and accept that they are in love.
I like that this epilogue is hopeful, especially with Lucien visit and the discovery of Lexie and Hellen sisterhood.

María | 2107 comments Living Nightmare (Sentinel Wars, #4) by Shannon K. Butcher
Pages: 368
English review: This was always my favorite book of the saga. Maybe because Nika was the aggressor and Madoc the reluctant one, switching the roles.
Nika had success rescuing Tory but maybe it's too late...
The dead of Angus and Gilda was terrible. I hope her daughter Maura could appreciate their sacrifice.

María | 2107 comments Blood Hunt (Sentinel Wars, #5) by Shannon K. Butcher
Pages: 400
English review: This was my least favorite book of the saga. The pace is slow and I could not find the story of Hope and Logan interesting. Fortunately, I could read about the other characters: Grace and Thor, Carmen, Jackie and Ian, etc...
This could be an endless serie because new characters keep appearing from nowhere, now even from another unknown planet!!!

So, worried about her cousin, Jake the new leader of the Defensors, asked the ancient warrior Liam to keep an eye on her and help her.
