This is the 5th book in the Werecats series by Rachel Vincent.
Being the first female werecat enforcer isn't easy. Scars accumulate, but I'm stronger in so many ways.
As for my personal life? It's complicated. Choices worth making always are. Ever since my brother's death and my father's impeachment, it's all I can do to prevent more blood from spilling. Now our Pride is under attack by a flight of vicious thunderbirds. And making peace with our new enemies may be the only way to get the best of our old foe.
With the body count rising and treachery everywhere, my instincts tell me to look before I leap. But sometimes a leap of faith is the only real option..
I love this series. :)
Faythe has been through a lot in a very short span of time. She reluctantly left school and returned to her Pride - assumed the role of Enforcer for her Alpha father - and has not slowed since.
Things are headed for an all out civil war among the werecats - if Calvin Malone can't be stopped. Calvin is determined to bring down Faythe's Pride and her Alpha father - and take the tabbies for himself - and he will lie, cheat, steal and kill to get his way.
When Calvin's treachery brings the thunderbirds to their door Faythe is once again thrust into a precarious situation. Bring the thunderbirds proof of her Pride's innocence or lose and innocent Faythe holds dear.
Along the way Faythe's personal life takes a nose dive when both Marc and Jace are sent to help Faythe in her endeavors. Having those two toms in such close quarters proves almost as dangerous as the proof gathering.
Shift is an awesome read and I give this installment of the Werecat series 5 out of 5 stars.
I am sad to note that the next installment - Alpha, due out in October of this year - will be the last in this great series.
And coming in October: Alpha
