I've really, really needed a good read for a while now. It's been a low summer reading break for me and I don't like it. I finally figured out I needed paranormal reads to keep my interest right now. So when a bookish friend suggested this series, I jumped to grab the first book. And before I had gotten half way through it, I was buying the rest of the series. Yep, this is just one of those series that captured me and held. Devoured it and was so glad book two was already waiting. What's really interesting about this series is how it's set around the supernatural prison system. The city where this is set houses one of the prisons. The supernaturals work at or support that prison. There are five types of supernaturals: shifters (all types of animals), fae, magic users, vampires and the demi-fae which included all kinds of creatures from trolls to merpeople and more. The dynamics of that type of a community was an interesting setting for this story. The characters were excellent. I loved Jessa. She puts the bada$$ in shifter. That girl does not put up with $hit from anyone especially her quads trying to shield her. Her inner dialogue was funny and had me cracking up lots of times. I'd compare her to Alex from Jennifer L Armentrout's Covenant series. Add to her the four boys that are her best friends. A set of quadruplets each a different member of each race, they were seriously protective of Jessa. I adore all four boys but Braxton was my favorite. He's a dragon shifter and he seemed to be much more attached to Jessa. Altogether, this group of five made up a pack of friends that I was cheering for the whole book. There were a lot of well developed secondary characters that made this book special. The sorcerer was adorable. The surprise arrivals certainly added an interesting dynamics to things. And the head of the shifter packs, Jessa's father, had some explaining to do. I really enjoyed how all of these players carved out an essential piece of the story making it richer and fuller. The story was compelling and had me listening to every second. I had an idea of who I wanted Jessa to end up with but of course that isn't what this book was about. This first book sets the stage for the conflicts that are sure to come in book two. And it does such a good job of crafting the story that I wanted to dive right into book two as soon as I finished the first. Yeah, it ends on a cliffhanger and you definitely want book two on hand for immediate consumption. Really and truly enjoyed this one. It was just what I needed. Lots of good world building, well developed characters and a compelling story all had me devouring it. Have you read it? If you enjoy paranormal, then you should. It's almost as good as a JLA book! (That is very high praise indeed).

Jessa Lebron was twenty two and a wolf shifter. She lives In Connecticut which was a center for Vampires, shifters, fey, magic users and demi fey in the US. There is a prison where the baddest paranormal criminals are kept to protect the rest of the world. Jessa is in college with the four constant companions that she had been with since two years old. They are a dragon shifter, vampire , fey and magic user which is a wizard. They are to be the next generation of leaders of their community. Then their are a couple of revelations such as Jessa has a twin sister. Also all they have known is a lie. Jessa friends were Tyson was a wizard, Maximus was a vampire, Jacob was fey, Braxton was a dragon shifter. Vanguard is the name of the prison hidden deep in the forest. Jessa and her friends set out to find out and end up in Vanguard and have to wait for their trial. This story was okay but to me it didn’t feel like Jessa and her friends were in their twenties instead of teenagers Also it was way too predictable. So I didn’t enjoy this as much as I could have. However there were some parts i did laugh at. I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.
This book will make you hungry! This a wonderfully written Shifter book, with great characters and a creative storyline that will have you craving more books and cake!
