    • Well, that was disappointing I m honestly sorry that I ever read that first book which I got free somehow I remember being annoyed at the spelling of the main character s name, Faythe I should have stopped then.The way the plot wound up, for the most part, had no real surprises Anybody who has followed the series has to have figured out what was going to happen by now It s been foreshadowed heck, shouted from the rooftops.No, my disappointment is in the way the damned romance thing was handled I [...]


    • While I was reading this series, I often thought about Greg Sanders, Faythe s father and Alpha of his Pride I wondered about his decision to train Faythe as his successor Was it a sound decision What leadership skills did he see in Faythe Throughout most of the series, Faythe s decisions often seemed misguided and impulsive I know many readers were put off by her attitude and some did not continue reading this excellent series In Alpha, Faythe begins to shine I understood Greg s choice of leader [...]


    • It is going to be damn hard to review this book without spoilers, but here goes nothing.This was, without a doubt, the most amazing rollercoaster ride of emotions I have ever been on From anger to anxiety, fear to hatred, joy to love, pain to healing, and everything in between It was all there and in spades I must first say I balled my eyes out at least three times and felt my heart break at least six, so be prepared Yes, you read that right At least six times Three of those were for each Faythe [...]


    • He went down like a cheerleader after prom Unfortunately while the series starting improving in the middle, it fell apart again at the end I wanted to kill half the characters in this book myself, on both the good and bad side.This book was supposed to be the wrap up all the other stories was leading to and we do get to see internal power struggles with the annoying council I want to choke There weren t really surprises with the decisions and outcome since it was already to us in previous books [...]


    • 5 Alpha Stars What an OUTSTANDING Series I love it so hard This book had me crying I mean that s not really a big surprise but crying people I was happy and sad and happy and sad This book put me through so many emotions And I was still left with a smile on my face Faythe really is badass and I loved that she was her true self through the books She may have faltered here and there but she was always true to her pride Even at the her own expense I wish the author would do a spin off because there [...]


    • Contains spoilers if you haven t read the previous books in the series I literally jumped up and down when I got the chance of getting this book early and I was than thrilled when I got in my email box I stopped everything I was doing and just started reading it right then and there Less than a day later I am here writing this review of the closing book of one of my favorite series ever and it could not be bittersweet Being Alpha was a burden and an enormous responsibility, not a license to pu [...]


    • First I want to share one of the sexiest moments in literary history This isn t about you Well, it should be he shouted, and I flinched Everything I do is about you, and I want the reverse to be true, too I wiped tears, my throat aching with words that would only make this worse What, you need a reminder That s what he was doing, right And now you smell like him You probably taste like him You should taste like me He was on me before I could even catch my breath Fans self How can you not love M [...]


    • I ve never before seen any series where the main character starts out annoying and then becomes progressively even awful I had hopes after the last couple of books that Faythe would redeem herself by finally making some good decisions, but if anything, her behavior becomes even worse And in the end, she doesn t even make a choicee guys do it for her.With some decent action scenes but predictable power plays and predictable deaths, the only real question is how the infamous love triangle is reso [...]


    • What What What But she couldn t complete the thought She keeps saying that, Kaci said, sinking onto the couch on my other side Pound her on the back, and she may actually finish a sentence Was that hilarious or what Tehee Contains spoilers of previous books All I can say is WOW What a great series This was my first series predominately about shifters and I loved it The love triangle between Marc Faythe Jace was something else What annoyed me in this series was the fact that she could not make up [...]


    • I am so sad that this series is over This was really a great end to a wonderful series Although I wasn t mad about who she ended up with, I wasn t totally thrilled about it either but I always knew that s how it would beThere were so many loose ends to tie up that I wasn t sure how they would all get addressed, but they did I am really keeping my fingers crossed that there might be a spinoff series with Jace as Alpha of his mother s pride there is sure to be tons of drama with that family There [...]

    • This is by far my favorite book in this series The plot was fast paced and kept me guessing The tension between the characters was emotional and angsty, and I don t just mean the Marc Faythe Jace triangle The situation with Ryan, the relationship between Holly and Michael, the relationship between Faythe and her father, the moments between Vic and Faythe all were so very well written And as much as I hate to focus on Marc Faythe Jace so much, they were the central story to this series, in one wa [...]


    • OMG I just can t believe it is really over I feel like crying because I really don t want this amazing series to end I still have this lovely dream where Rachel Vincent comes and tells me not to worry because the best spin off ever is coming, and with all this amazing characters in it so we wont have to miss it this much Why does it have to end I love this series so much But I guess that s what made this author get so high in my ranking, she knew when exactly to finish the series and how to tide [...]


    • This review was posted at Under The Covers.What an amazing ending to this series This book was excellent Coming from someone who struggled a bit through the first 2 books, and was encouraged to continue a little with the third Ms Vincent has done a great job with world building throughout this series, the plots of each book are always interesting, keep you on your toes, and they ve been laid out so well, it s almost like watching a movie The characters are all great I was never a Faythe lover, w [...]


    • I m reviewing this series as a whole rather than each individual book Overall, this was a great series Lots of action, fast paced, and very entertaining The only thing I didn t like about it was the lead, Faythe Since she is obviously a huge part of the book, that might have been enough to turn me off of the books altogether However, the rest of the story and characters made up for what irked me about her First of all, she was supposed to be all tough and kick ass, but she came across as childis [...]


    • Power, revenge, and justice prepare yourself for the final battle In the final chapter of The Shifters Series , Faythe and her Pride must fight a tyrannical werecat intent on taking over the territorial council, and the south central Pride in particular It s down to Faythe to take on the role of Alpha before she feels completely ready for the job Forced to rise to the occasion, Faythe must balance experience, advice, and the urge for vengeance She must also finally choose between Marc and JaceNo [...]


    • Well, Faythe s story has come to an end with this book, and I have to say it was a wild ride I started this series thinking, no, knowing that she was self absorbed and challenging her Pride s way of life and out to prove herself Faythe was aggravating to read about in book one But Vincent s writing style is powerful and immersing so I had no desire to quit and was very happy to see that she brought Faythe along so realistically and well Faythe eventually acknowledged how much she loved and respe [...]


    • Overall, I enjoyed the series not enough to re read it but still a nice read I was not emotionally attached to the heroine So I did not care how the story ended or who she chose for a mate.I am not happy with the ending but I can live with it I do believe the right man was chose but I wished he could have walked away from her to start his own life I would have loved to continue with his journey of accepting himself as a stray, ALPHA of his own pride, and a husband father with another tabby Throu [...]


    • Ok, here s the deal I wish I could get amnesia and forget all about the first five books Then I could write a short but great review of this last one and really do it justice But since I m as mentally strong as ever, I have to write about the series as a whole The worst thing about Alpha is that you have to read five other books using half your brain and wishing you were brain dead in the process before getting to it Without having gone through all that, Alpha is actually quite good But by the t [...]


    • This book just starts off poorly The writing is a bit scattered and confusing, the characters remained juvenile, and I just wasn t thrilled with any of it Not only were the characters completely unchanged, but so were events Topics that had been thoroughly covered in previous books were, once again, thoroughly covered here Events that had happened in previous books were well, very similar events took place here I mean, really if I wanted to read the same book over and over, that s what I d do I [...]


    • A brilliant end to one of my favorite series Vincent has never once disappointed in this series and there was a lot of expectation and pressure on her to write a fitting end for Faythe and I think she did just that Never one to share away from heartbreaking situations and consequences, this one had me in tears on numerous occasions as the realities of the war hit home and no one was safe Everyone had a role to play in this one, although some characters got a bit less page time than I would have [...]


    • Had to think about how to rate this one I absolutely loved the first 90% of the book It reduced me to bawling several times Unfortunately the ending fell apart and left me with no hope knowing this is the final book in the series Yes I feel she choose the wrong tom If you are lucky enough to be in love with two men at the same time you don t choose the one that demands it be about him and doesn t care about your happinessat tends to lead to a jealous filled future not a hopeful one.The writing o [...]




    • DO NOT READ IF YOU DON T WANT TO KNOW WHO FAYTHE CHOOSES Okay, with that being said I would like to point out that I ve been on Team Marc since the first book Even when she was all sweet on Jace I knew that in the end she would pick Marc because he has always been behind her no matter what He may not always understands why she does what she does but he does back her play when the time calls for it Plus he s all adorably protective of her and when they are angry at each other they tear each other [...]


    • I don t think it s any secret that I have much, much love for this series Faythe is one kick ass chick Is her personal life a mess Yeah, you could say that Does it bleed into her professional life Yeah, it kinda does Is that fair No, but Faythe is honorable enough to own it and accept the consequences If you thought Faythe did some growing up in the previous books, it s nothing compared to the growing she does in Alpha When my dad finally stopped and faced me, I made myself meet his gaze Long go [...]


    • WERECAT PARTY AT MY PLACE image error And here s to the new bad ass female Alpha who was victorious over her enemies, avenged the death of those she loved, remained steadfast and true and proved that women can look good, be intelligent AND kick ass


    • 3.5 stars This was read a few weeks ago so my memories aren t as fresh as I would ve liked when reviewing, but I m terrible at reviewing straight after finishing.This book was a good conclusion to a series I ve been reading for quite a while now I can t say it s a favourite series of mine, but it s definitely a unique and entertaining one This book wasn t my favourite of them all, that would probably still be book 1, honestly, but I did like how it wrapped up I found the beginning to drag a litt [...]


    • Amazing What a emotional roller coaster this book was I m sad this is the last installment of Faythe and her Pride, but what a way to end it I cried, I cried, I may have laughed and I cried some Whoa Every time someone mention Ethan, becuase I just loved him to death, I got teary eyed Around page 200 things got intense and if you didn t at least have to fight the tears back something must be wrong on your end and didn t let up until the last page Faythe s dilemma with the choice she needed to [...]


    • 4.5 5 stars This was one of those books going in that I knew would be really intense and hard to read because of my own personal investment with the characters over the previous 5 books True, I m not happy with the ending, but I do understand it Because of my personal feelings with the outcome, I m docking the book a half point Yes, I m petty grin There was a lot of emotion reading this book some teary scenes, some joyful scenes, some shocking scenes, and actually quite a few bits of humor throw [...]
