Wow! Rachel Vincent really delivers with the final installment of The Shifters series. Faythe, Marc and Jace are accused of treason and murder. There are major changes in the Council and Cal Malone is once again showing how truly evil he is. Faythe is once again fighting for her life and that of her Pride. The last two books in this series have touched me so many ways. (At least I wasn't sobbing on a plane while reading this one!)You can lose yourself in this series and feel like you are a Pridemate. 5 Stars!!
The Shifters series was one of the first paranormal series that I read when I ventured back into the genre in 2007. I have been a faithful and loyal fan ever since I ran across Stray in a used bookstore. I've bought and devoured every release in this series ever since. Faythe and the crew have never disappointed. They've always pulled me into their world and delivered an action-packed, blood-pumping thrill ride of a story. Alpha, was no exception!
I'm so sad that this brought the series to a close, after all of this time I feel like I'm saying goodbye to friends. Luckily, Rachel Vincent has shown us what a fantastic writer she is, delivering another amazing addiction to the series and ending it all in a way that left me feeling completely satisfied. There was no cop-out on the love triangle, we got a solid ending with Faythe picking one guy for certain. The major dramas were all wrapped up, but it was left open enough that we can imagine how our favorite characters have went on to live their lives after it was all done.
Overall, fans of this series will not be disappointed with the finale. If you aren't one of the minions that have already read this, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR????
I have been devouring this series as quickly as possible in a manner that can only be described as obssecive. Rachel Vincent is a new fave author! This whole series is amazing!
I read Alpha in almost one sitting. I couldn't stop couldn't put it down almost couldn't breath without knowing what the finale would bring. Alpha was not a disapointment! Every moment had me on the edge of my seat.
We have gotten to see Faythe grow from a spoiled baby to an impressive Badass women from Stray to Alpha and it has been a transformation to behold. I hate to read a series to be let down by the finale but this one tied everything up, not in a neat little bow, but in a sloppy, imperfect, bow that only Faythe and her loyal crew tie.
These books are keepers for my shelf...I know I will do a re-read someday!
