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.
