SHIFT Blog Tour

Goodreads: http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/5053436.Raine_Thomas

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.

What did I think?

Well, I am known for giving my honest opinion so here it goes…there were a few parts that I struggled with. I am not a huge fan of stories with difficult to pronounce names and places. Why? Because it makes reading VERY slow and tedious for me.

Once I got past this, I found both Defy and Shift to be a wild ride! I must say that knowing there is another book left to tell the remainder of the story makes me mad. I want it NOW!

The character of Sophia really grew on me. At times I wish she would just notice things that I did. I mean, how could she not tell really how she was feeling? Yes, I am being a little evasive with details but that is why you need to buy the books. It is no fun if I tell you everything!

UPDATE

Raine has more character information on her website plus pronunciations! Yay! Thanks Raine for that info!!!
