Shift by M.R. Merrick ~ Student Review & GIVEAWAY

I have another fabulous review for you from one of my students.  Patrick read and reviewed the first book in this series, Exiled a few weeks back and now he's here again to review Shift.

Check out his review of Exiled here.

Shift (The Protector series, # 2)

By Patrick

Recently I read the novel "Shift" by M.R. Merrick, the sequel to "Exile" and the second book in the Protector series.

In this adventure Chase, Rayna, and their friends face a plethora of challenges. Rayna is shifting into a werecat, Willy is shifting into a werewolf, and Riley is still on the loose.

While cautiously balancing his problems, Chase Williams must learn about himself and explore his own abilities. This not only poses the problem of possibly hurting himself, but the people around him.

My personal favorite part is when both packs and Chase's team are battling the cyclops against all odds.

Beautifully written with a deep story, Mr. Merrick artfully manages to balance a healthy amount of romance and mystery with a hefty dose of action that continues to the last page. A fantasy novel to truly be reckoned with that will keep you enticed to the end and craving more. I personally believe that "Shift" has set the bar for future fantasy novels and will inspire.
I have some fabulous giveaways to let you know about too! M.R. Merrick is giving away TWO sets of SIGNED books for the Protector series.  The first set is on Goodreads.  You can just click the link below to enter that one.
