Editorial Reviews

Twimom101 Bookblog - Mandy Anderson
Shelly Crane is a wonderful story teller and she did an amazing job with Catalyst. The people she writes about; their love for one another is by far what makes this series so awesome. It’s like they all know that no matter what, in the end, love is the only thing that matters. They took care of each other and became a true family in every sense of the word. And even with all the evil in the world, happiness and goodness can still exist in a underground bunker.

    wow what an ending!!

    Sherry has been taken captive by the Lighters and now the group must go in search of her to bring her back to their ¿family¿. But will they be able to get to her in time or will the torture prove to be too much for Sherry? Can Merrick manage to keep it together long enough to save the woman he loves? And how does Daniel, the Lighter that helped them in the past, play a role in all of it?


    When Collide started out it was a Sherry and Merrick story. But now, new and old characters are getting more time in the spotlight and new relationships are beginning to form. Cain and Lillian are starting to realize that what they have is bigger than the both of them, Marissa and Jeff are about to go through something that neither thought possible, and even new characters will bring something wonderful to the series.


    Shelly Crane is a wonderful story teller and she did an amazing job with Catalyst. The people she writes about; their love for one another is by far what makes this series so awesome. It¿s like they all know that no matter what, in the end, love is the only thing that matters. They took care of each other and became a true family in every sense of the word. And even with all the evil in the world, happiness and goodness can still exist in a underground bunker.


    Shelly wrote a heart wrenching, incredible story that was by far the hardest of hers for me to put down. I look forward to more books from her and hopefully a happily ever after for the characters of this series. And yes Shelly will answer to me if anything happens to my Merrick. *Gives Evil Eye*

    Good series

    I would have gave this book more stars but the story started to get a little too predictable. I still overall like the series and can't wait for the next book.

    Intense & Thrilling

    Wow - that was intense! I love this little band of rebels, including all the newcomers they continue to add. They go through so much pain and so much loss but remain strong through it all. Sherry & Merrick do such a wonderful job of holding their little family together. Sometimes their love is the only thing that gets them through it all; it is such a strong, powerful, consuming love that it makes my heart ache for them when they are apart. Others are beginning to find love in the middle of all their troubles, too, and you might be surprised to find out who! It's also getting harder & harder to know who they can trust. They are learning that keepers may have the ability to be downright evil, while one lighter seems to have grown a conscience & has the desire to do good. My heart is aching for the next book in this series - it can't come quick enough!

    EPIC READ

    Shelly Shelly Shelly....... You have done it again! There are no words that can describe what I felt when I was reading Catalyst. Man oh Man did I have so many emotions and scream fests at the book that I wanted to throw it because some people just don't get it.

    Sherry has been taken by the Lighters and she is locked up in the Lighter facility awaiting her fate.Merrick is going crazy because he has never been separated from her before.The thing is that Merrick and the gang have a plan to get Sherry out of the lighter facility but it will have to be all or nothing. At this point most people are on board but others are wondering if risking their life for Sherry's is worth it. What is Merrick going to do?

    While all of this is going on someone else is sick and what she knows will rock on person's universe. See she is pregnant and she does not know how the father is going to react because who wants to raise a child locked in a bunker with no real end to the lighters in sight.

    Another couple will finally open up to one another and show their love for each other only to have it tested in a big way. One will sacrifice for the other but in the end will it be worth it? Will they finally be together? Will love conquer all?

    Shelly has created a world where good VS evil is all around and everyone must make a decision as to whether or not they will chose to be part of the good or part of the evil. In this book the evil will appear as being good and will deceive people. There are new characters introduced and they will blow your mind. If you have been reading about Sherry and Merrick from the beginning you will know who these characters are and you will be surprised what side they chose.

    This book had me on the edge of my seat because the end was well...... left with a HUGE cliff hanger! Lord I could have ripped my eye balls out when I got to the end. Shelly I LOVED it because it is going to keep me on my toes till the next one comes out. Plus I am dying to know if a certain character will ever get pregnant....
