Hello and welcome to Adele Is Reading.
Today on the blog, I have my review of:
Shifting Blood is the third book in the Crescent City Wolves series.
Trigger Warnings: Sex, Blood, Death, Murder.
Please note that there may be triggers that pertain to you that I might’ve missed.
What’s a girl to do with a little vampire blood in her system?
I’ll tell you.
Take out the big bad evil.
I have more power and control than I thought was possible.
So why doesn’t my pack let me take care of the danger?
They want me to enlist the help of the ancestors.
With a bond as strong as ours, I know they are only trying to keep me safe.
Turns out, their plan was worse than mine.
In order to defeat Ophelia, the witches in the quarter fill me in on how this works.
I’m going to have to give up something precious.
Everything is at stake while Ophelia and Otto grow stronger.
There’s no more time to argue with the pack.
There is no Plan B.
I’m not scared of fae realms or the ancestors. Not even mythical magical stones.
What terrifies me is losing the only loves I’ve ever had.
I’m willing to do anything–for them.
Even if there is a chance I won’t wake up.
*Shifting Blood is the third book in the Crescent City Witch series, a reverse harem paranormal romance. If you love a badass heroine, hot alpha wolf shifters, and mystery and action, then this series is for you!*
From GoodReads [x]:
“REVERSE HAREM” IS, LITERALLY, THE OPPOSITE OF “HAREM”, WITH A GROUP OF MALES CENTERING ROUND A SINGULAR FEMALE, USUALLY WITH THREE OR MORE MALES. QUITE OFTEN FOUND UNDER THE ROMANCE GENRE.
Shifting Blood was one hell of a whirlwind to read and I couldn’t have been happier to read it. I am so happy with the way that things are going, and I absolutely adore that Rose has grown to depend on the guys more, and that she values their thoughts on matters. They’re now truly …. cinq’d. Haah. Puns. …cause there’s 4 guys, and Rose… which makes 5.. and 5 in French is ‘cinq.’ Anyway!
I like that even though the prophecy is still a big whole ordeal and there are a few ways that others think how the prophecy will unfold, Rose carves out her own choices. I also love that she swears. I personally love swearing and omg, when characters swear (especially if they swear a LOT) I love it.
I was so bummed that I couldn’t have read the fourth book right after finishing Shifting Blood. Made me kinda sad that I didn’t wait the handful of days to begin with, but, what the heck: I enjoyed the story too much to wait, and I didn’t mind waiting until the 4th book is out. Such is the life of a binge-reader.
I like that there was another supernatural species added into the story. Genuinely when stories have all kinds of supes’ in them I get a little giddy inside. Paranormal Romance stories with only one kind of supernatural? Still enjoyable… but a little plain jane. I need a little *spice* to my stories.
All in all a great novel, and I’m definitely giving Shifting Blood, 4 stars.
What was the last book you couldn’t wait to read? Was it worth the wait?
Thank you for stopping by.
See you soon, and happy reading.
