Blurb: The Shifters: Book Six
Three days after the Agency infiltrated the headquarters of the Knights, an organization that killed, tortured, and experimented on shifters, Chief Anu sends Agent Poe on assignment: find Nordik, the powerful bear shifter who controls Sanctuary, and offer alliance. Agent Poe already has his hands full with shifters who need help and a kidnapped agent who needs rescue. Poe has never failed a mission, but he finds members of the Knights who escaped the raid inside Sanctuary, raising suspicions about Chief Anu. Poe’s goals change once more when he discovers he and Nordik have a mutual attraction they can’t resist. Keeping shifters safe becomes more complicated, and more important, than ever.
Review: Okay, so I read this book without having read the others in the series and then, after getting done, went and marked all the rest of this series on my TBR list. It was easy to catch onto the world even though I wasn’t familiar with the base storyline that was running throughout the series. I didn’t feel lost, I just took my time, knowing I was missing some pieces to the puzzle. I can’t wait to read the rest and fill in any blanks.
Poe is incredibly interesting. He is powerful and strong from his supernatural blood, but also short in stature. He has had to prove his worth and fight for respect all his life. Even though he is very close to his family he doesn’t get to spend a lot of time with them and that lack of a touchstone affects him, and he knows it. He was tired when we meet him, and throughout the book we see a man of integrity and beauty. He fights for what he thinks is right at all times. I couldn’t get enough of him.
Nordik is a master shifter. He is different because he is this fascinating combination of incredible wisdom, yet due to his isolation, a certain lack of knowledge. He is also beautifully vicious and passionate. His devotion to shifters and Poe had me pulled in to see what would happen.
I was on pins and needles the entire book. I read a lot, and the shifter sub-genre is one of my favorites, but this story felt incredibly new. A fantastic take on a shifter world. I can’t wait to dive into this series from book one and explore all the author has done here. Well done!
