Overview

Having the ability to shapeshift, Sophia is familiar with change. But even she feels the rising tension in her homeland.

A shadowy male and deadly beast reside in their midst. The births of the newest Kynzesti loom. Hostile Mercesti continue to hunt for the Elder Scroll, and a traumatized female is too afraid to use her abilities to stop them.

Topping off Sophia's stress is Quincy, the male she's convinced can't stand her. She rues the loss of their friendship, but can't figure out how to move past it. She'll soon learn, however, that mending that rift bears more significance than she ever imagined.

The search for the Elder Scroll takes on unexpected urgency, and Sophia finds herself in a race across the mainland. To stop the Mercesti led by Eirik, she and her companions must get past their differences and unite against them. If they don't, Eirik will acquire the immense power he seeks, and two of the beings Sophia loves most will die.

    Sophia's story seems to be a much more romantic tale than her cousin's. She is more studious and shy, something I couldn't really relate to as well as I would like, but that is entirely me, NOT the author!! This book is a sweet and much calmer continuation of the Firstborn Trilogy. These cousins make me envy their closeness in a world where we are rarely close to this extent. Their devotion and sheer love for each other is heartfelt and loving, and the romance is just heart warming... I think the best thing I could say, is that this book is endearing. Raine's professional style of writing, combined with her clear understanding of ALL kinds of personalities shines through in this book. It is yet another winner in my book!

    I was anxiously awaiting this book and I was not disappointed!

    I was anxiously awaiting this book and I was not disappointed! Did I
    enjoy this book: I did enjoy this book. I read it every free chance I
    had. In fact, I had been anxiously awaiting this book after finishing
    Defy. Shift picks up about two months after the end of Defy. This book
    is mainly about Sophia and Quincy. I loved the interaction between those
    two and knowing what each of them are thinking when they themselves do
    not. It was great! I also loved seeing Tate and Zachariah together.
    Their relationship is fantastic. Shift has a lot of action and
    adventure. It was wonderful to see the different sides of the characters
    emerge and develop. Not everyone is as they seem. It was satisfying to
    see Sophia tap into her powers, finally. Some of the Mercesti are also
    shown in a different light...they aren't all evil. Poor Knorbis and
    Ariana. They both are trying to do the right thing which sometimes
    conflicts with doing what their heart is pulling them towards.
    All-in-all, a great read that kept me interested from beginning to end.
    Speaking of the end, what a cliffhanger!! I cannot wait for the third
    book to be released! Would I recommend it: I would recommend this book,
    especially if you read Defy. If you haven't read Defy, you really should
    read this series. Will I read it again: It depends on when the third
    book is released. I may at some point down the road.
