Hell. Yeah!

Loved this adult urban fantasy series.

Faythe is a shifter, a were-cat. Her father wants her to take over as Alpha. She doesn't want this responsibility. Let the danger and shenanigans, begin.

I started reading this series in November 2011. I got addicted real quick.

I wrote a couple poem reviews for Stray - Shifters # 1 and Rogue - Shifters # 2. 

* goes cross eyed * 

This is a highly popular series and sometimes everything has already been said in the last 20,000 reviews.

Heheee! It's what happens when you start a series later than the other gazillion readers.

Every now and then a poem hits my head and I have to write it instead of a normal style review. Trust me, I know no rules in the poem world, I just write what hits my head, so I'm no doubt breaking a few rules, but , eh.

Faythe has been left free,
A tabby amongst the boys is a rarity,
Her brothers are watching,
Her father’s ever present spies.

Faythe wants just to learn and discover life,
Settling down becoming a housewife ,
Is just not her style,
Meanwhile rare tabbys are kidnapped and dying.

An Alpha is what Greg wants Faythe to be,
He is grooming her to take over,
She will no longer be free,
An Alpha equals a Pride full of responsibility.

Marc is her match,
But Jace wants some of that,
Faythe is not his to touch,
Marc will show Jace how much.

Rachel Vincent wrote a great tale,
A bad ass book of 618 pages,
I want to know more,
This party has only just got started.

Marc and Jace. Rachel sure had me tangled up inside who I wanted Faythe to end up with. By the time I read the last book, Alpha , I certainly had been put through the ringer with my emotions with these two lads.

Each book got better and better , until I was hungering for Alpha, even though I was sad it was the last.

I still wish for more, especially a spinoff of one of the characters, just to make my heart feel better.


This is part of what I had to say in my last review for Alpha.

The thing with the Shifter series is Rachel really has you in a bit of a mess after each book finishes. She really brings her characters to life, they appear to be standing before you and so real you could touch them. You ‘feel’ like you are hurting as bad as Faythe. I felt quite connected to Faythe.

My reviews can be found HERE.

For all things Rachel Vincent , check out her web page HERE

I met Rachel when she came to Australia in 2013

The Shifter series is a really cool urban fantasy series not to be missed, I highly recommend it.


A resident of Oklahoma, Rachel Vincent has a BA in English and an overactive imagination, and consistently finds the latter to be more practical. She shares her workspace with two black cats (Kaci and Nyx) and her # 1 fan. Rachel is older than she looks-seriously-and younger than she feels, but remains convinced that for every day she spends writing, one more day will be added to her lifespan.



  1. I only read the first book of the series but it was so much like the Kelley Armstrong series that it feels a little weird. I liked it but I never picked book 2, I should.

    1. Melliane, it really is nothing like Kelley's series the more you get into it :D I've only read two books in Kelley's series, but it never crossed my mind until you just said it :D

  2. Very creative, my friend, keep the verses coming!

  3. I adore Rachel's Screamers series and I do have this series on my TBR list---just need to get around to reading it one day!
