Shifters by Rachel Vincent

If you’re a fan of Urban Fantasy, then the Shifters series by Rachel Vincent is essential reading. It has everything that you love about UF, a kick ass (stubborn) heroine, an interesting and surprisingly gritty new world to explore, lots of action, drama and a dash of romance. It’s packed full of some fantastic stuff.

I started this series late, it had already finished by the time I had started reading it, in fact I had all the books collection dust on my book shelf. And, when I started reading I got warned of a few things; that the first two books were duds, that their is a love triangle and that the heroine was a little trying. So, before you all run off and start reading this series I want to put some of these fears to rest.

One, I disagree that the first two books are duds. I really liked them, yes they are slower than the last four in the series, but Vincent has a world to build. If she had just dove into the action with no explanation, nothing would have made sense and the rich and interesting setting she created wouldn’t have been so fantastic. The second point, yes their is a love triangle, some people hate this, some people love it. Personally I am a hater and it is one of the few things I wasn’t too keen on in this book, mainly because it is obviously what’s going to happen. However, it certainly works to ratchet the tension up in this series and you can see the heroine has some genuinely hard choices to make throughout the series. The last point Faythe, the heroine has a lot to deal with. She is a woman in a mans world and if she doesn’t want to spend her life locked into a life she hates, she has to be aggressive, stubborn and work twice as hard to prove her worth.

So, if you are after a quality UF full of shifter politics, action and romance then you need to give this a try! And, if you do love it…it’s not entire over, Vincent has done a spin off of this series featuring some of the characters you get to know and love in Shifters.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?

I read this seriea when it came out. I liked the first two books, I am not a fan of the love triangle and this series is the main reason for it and, yes, Faythe is a female in a male dominated world but she was unbearable at times. Thank goodness there are strong female characters now who are leaders who can make the tough decisions without being selfish or too stubborn. It had a good premise, I liked where it was headed, but I didn’t really enjoy the journey.

So glad I am not alone in this! I finished the series solely due to the world building and the other characters. I am not a fan of love triangles either but when they are done well I can look past my hang up and enjoy the world. Faythe made that near impossible for me. I honestly could not stand her most of the time. I thought both men would do better with someone else (anyone else!) 😀
