I can never read too many books on the paranormal because as Ms. Donnelly and Ms. Mackenzie have proven there are always new ways to show how shifters came to be. I loved there fresh take on shifters.
The characters were so easy to relate to and fall in love with. I didn’t want to put this delightful story down once I started because I was caught up in it from beginning to end.
I was able to visually see the scenery in the states as well as in Germany. I wanted to get to the castle to see what it looked like inside and I was not disappointed.
From the time that Mina’s mother dies and she finds that her father is still alive your heart goes out to her. Going to Germany at her friend Chloe’s request seemed the right thing to do at the time. Wanting to meet the father who left her and her mother alone all those years ago.
I loved how Mina showed that she had an inner strength about her that seemed to surface once she got to Germany. I loved her sarcastic remarks they added humor to the story. She seemed to accept the information that comes at her like a pro. Sure she had questions but they were always answered, maybe not to her liking but none the less they were answered and she was accepting of those answers.
I loved Mathias, a very virile strong male. Shifter, sinfully handsome and stubborn, usually the hardest kind to fall in love but when they fall they fall hard. I found it sexy the way he became very protective of Mina in such a short time. He would move heaven and earth to protect what was his. This is my kind of guy.
Once Mina arrives in Germany things start to happen and they don’t end until the very end and even then there are hints of more to come.
I enjoyed how the plot kept going and keeping me enthralled in the story.
There was the whole thing that went on with Luca, although I felt in a way it was needed to help Mina and Mathias get to where they needed to be, I almost thought that in a way it really wasn’t needed. It seemed like a distraction.
I would love to hear the story of Mina’s mom and dad as they touched on that briefly in this story. I look forward to the next book which gives us the story of Talon another hunky shifter and Chloe who is Mina’s best friend and the sister to Mathias.
I highly recommend Infinite Betrayal to anyone who loves the world of shifters and looks for a different take on how they came to be. A simply wonderful beginning, for Ms. Donnelly and Ms. Mackenzie. Review by Robin. Book Provided by Author. Review Originally Posted @ Romancing the Book

Wow...here is another series that has hooked me with the first book and I cannot wait for more!! Infinite Betrayal has been a favorite of mine for a while strictly because of the cover. But now it is a favorite of mine because of the story and characters as well!! It was so much more than I expected and I loved every second of it!! I couldn't put it down!!
Of course, I absolutely loved Mathias. Not only was he a protective, cocky, sweet, hot, sex~god, but he was also funny!! I loved the back and forth between him, Talon and Tre~so funny!! I loved Mathias and Mina together~such a great couple!! Mina was also a great character and she was definitely put through the ringer in this book. I felt so bad for her because she had been lied to by the people she cared about most. Everyone in her life kept secrets and lied to her from the beginning. I don't know how she was able to handle that and forgive most of them so easily. I could totally understand her feeling betrayed the most by Chloe and not being able to forgive her by the end of the book. I am so looking forward to the next book!! I can't wait to see what happens with Talon and Chloe and I'm definitely looking forward to more of Mathias and Mina. I loved the ending but there was still a lot of things left open or to be continued into the next book.
Such an awesome story that capture my interest from the beginning and entertained me to the point that I lost myself in the story and characters. I had such a great time reading Infinite Betrayal. It was everything that I look for in a book for my keeper pile.
There were so many twists and turns and secrets and lies being told that I was biting my nails waiting for what was going to happen when Mina found everything out. So good!! 5 out of 5 rating!!

GREAT NEW SERIES First of all, let me say how I regret that I purchased the "kindle edition" of this book because I think that COVER would look great on my night stand...HOT! HOT!! HOT!!!
OK, but seriously...I really enjoyed this book! I do not usually read the paranormal genre but it was such a nice change. The characters were interesting and the story line was WELL thought out. I was disappointed to see the story end and can't wait for the release of the next book in this series. Check it out!

AMAZING start to an INCREDIBLE new series!!!!
Let me just start off by saying...I loved this book!!
Infinite Betrayal introduces us to the world of the Coteri, a very unique race of shapeshifters and the Valta which is headed by Valencia, the enemy of Roderick and the Coteri.
The book starts off with Mina morning the loss of her mother and trying to cope with her death. Mina feels alone because her mother was the only family she had being that her mother had told her her father had died when she was a baby. Her best friend Chloe is the only person she has left.
While going through her mothers possessions, Mina finds a box that contains letters of correspondence from her mother and a man that is supposedly her father and finds out... More > that her father is very much alive and living in Germany. Struggling with the decision of going to Germany and finding her father, Chloe finally convinces Mina to take the journey.
Enter Mathias (yummy, yummy Mathias). Mathias is the general of Coteri Kingdom and King Roderick's most trusted warrior. Mathias is given the task of watching over Mina until Roderick (Mina's father) tells him it's safe to bring her to the kingdom. Mathias is instantly attracted to Mina and tries to ignore the feelings and emotions that are arising between the two, because it is forbidden for any Coteri to mate with humans. But as they both give in to their feelings for each other, Mina learns the truth of her existence, her father's reason for leaving and the many betrayals of the people that Mina loved and trusted most.
This book is filled with adrenaline packed action, smokin' hot love scenes and a new spin on shapeshifters. I quickly fell in love with the unique characters and the world of the Coteri. I loved the secondary characters as well. Chloe, Roderick, Tremayne (Tre) and Talon are funny, lovable and honorable. Talon's books will be the second book in this series and I can not wait!!!
Gayle and Robyn have created an amazing world and I am looking forward to much more from this series!!
I give Infinite Betrayal - 5 STARS
