I know that better than most. Since rejoining the Pride, I've made big decisions and even bigger mistakes: the kind paid for with innocent lives. As the first and only female enforcer, I have plenty to prove to my father, the Pride and myself. And with murdered toms turning up in our territory, I'm working harder than ever, though I always find the energy for a little after-hours recreation with Marc, my partner both on and off duty.

But not all my mistakes are behind me. We're beginning to suspect that the dead are connected to a rash of missing human women and that they can all be laid at my feet-two or four, take your pick. And one horrible indiscretion may yet cost me more than I can bear....

Didn't enjoy this book as much as the first one. Seemed slow and I didn't really get into it.

Best part - the break up with Faythe and Marc.

Obviously I am a fan of Jace

The Shifters series by Rachel Vincent is amazing. I definitely think the first few books are better than the last ones in the series but nevertheless it is a series I thoroughly enjoyed reading. Faythe and Marc are great characters who I love reading about. ( )

I liked it but not as much as I liked the first in the series. The plot per se was interesting (more so on the second half of the book) but the part dedicated to the relationship between Faythe and Marc was, for me, very frustrating!!! ( )

I remember being slightly underwhelmed with the first book in this series but thinking that I should stick it out because I loved the Soul Screamers series (still one of my favorite series). And I was right. This book was much better than the first book. I liked Faythe so much more in Shifters than I had before and just felt her more overall. But, oh, that ending - it's classic Rachel Vincent. I am definitely much more vested in this series and finding out what happens now. Also, Jennifer Van Dyck is a great narrator. ( )

Okay, so Faith has decided to stay on in the pack for a few years trial and seems to have given up on ever returning to college basically. Maybe it’s back in her mind somewhat but she seems to have shrugged off most inhibitions and objections that she held in the first book. It seems her father is training her to be an enforcer and eventual pack leader, which is unheard of for a tabby (female).

I’m still not crazy about her personality, but the story for this one rocks more than the first. She receives a call from someone she was close to in her college days and found out that she accidentally ruined his life. Most of the book is spent with this guilt as he has joined with enemies from the previous book to continue reigning terror everywhere.

The charm in this series is the ties between Faith and Marc, the lead enforcer who is her on and off again hunk, her father, mother, and brothers. They all bring together a unit that is enjoyable with its conflicting personalities. The inner workings of the pack and how it all ties in with other packs and those struggling politics add punch.

Because of the relationship digs into her and Marc, there is more romance in this one than the first. I liked her mom and dad from the original novel but they are even better here. I LOVED Manx’s personality and hope a lot more is done with that cat.

There’s plenty of action and it never lets up long as a lot is going on with each scene, both emotionally and physically. Nail biting scenes and tension hold strong, while the ending has a brutal part that was hard for me to stomach. I’m pleased to see it was also hard for Faith to stomach; that redeems her somewhat in my mind. I do think she has some growing up to do still, is too harsh for a protagonist, but the story itself is interesting, making the series worth continuing.

There is a small so-so cliffhanger that annoys a little.

Epigraph
Dedication
This is for Number One, who puts up with me
on a daily basis. Who is patient when the
line between fiction and reality blurs. Who
remembers when I forget. And who does
hundreds of little things to keep me healthy
and happy, because we both know I’d rather be
working than sleeping or eating. I’m still up and
running because you take care of me.
