Shift (Firstborn, #2)

               Shift (Firstborn #2)


Having the ability to shapeshift, Sophia is familiar with change. But even she feels the rising tension in her homeland.

A shadowy male and deadly beast reside in their midst. The births of the newest Kynzesti loom. Hostile Mercesti continue to hunt for the Elder Scroll, and a traumatized female is too afraid to use her abilities to stop them.

Topping off Sophia’s stress is
Quincy, the male she’s convinced can’t stand her. She rues the loss of their friendship, but can’t figure out how to move past it. She’ll soon learn, however, that mending that rift bears more significance than she ever imagined.

The search for the Elder Scroll takes on unexpected urgency, and Sophia finds herself in a race across the mainland. To stop the Mercesti led by Eirik, she and her companions must get past their differences and unite against them. If they don’t, Eirik will acquire the immense power he seeks, and two of the beings Sophia loves most will die.

I fell in love with Raine Thomas’s Firstborn series after reading Defy, and I've been impatiently waiting for Shift. So that I could see more Quincy and Sophia’s romance, and it was well worth the wait. Thomas gave me a wonderful romance between these two. I also love Thomas’s incredible Estilorian Plane fantasy world building and the unity of the Estilorians families. It's just beautiful and will touch your heart to see the strong bond and love between the husbands and wives and their children in this series.

Sophia is a shifter and she’s always felt like she was a freak from rest of the Kynzesti, but she will finally get the answer to why she’s different. She will also find out why Quincy never could look at her or be around her, and now that Quincy has told Sophia the real reason why he couldn’t, she doesn't know which was worse for her to believe: that she thought Quincy didn't want to be with her because she’s a freak, or the fact he could never share truth with her that he loved her. But Sophia will have to push her love life to the back. Eirik is trying to get his hands on the Elder scroll. Ariana and Tate are the only two who can find the other missing scrolls before Eirik discovers them. But what none of them realize is Eirik's not just wanting the scroll but Ariana and Tate too.

Shift is a fantastic adventure. The Firstborn series is full of beautiful romance, action and a magical fantasy world that you will fall in love with. I recommend Shift the second novel in the Firstborn series as a fantasy world you will want to be a part of.

Defy (Firstborn, #1)

Seventeen-year-old Tate is about to make her parents’ dreams come true. Unfortunately for her, their dreams foretell her death.
Eager to explore more of the Estilorian plane and prove her abilities, Tate goes against her parents’ wishes and leaves the area of protection surrounding her home. Her choice puts her on a deadly path…one that leaves her alone, severely injured and battling for her life.

Her possible savior arrives in the form of Zachariah, a male who has removed himself from Estilorian society for more than fifty years. Fighting an unexpected connection to Tate, he must decide whether saving her life is worth destroying his.

As Tate struggles to find a way home, she ends up drawn into a dark Mercesti plot involving multiple murders and a powerful ancient artifact. With the unpredictable Zachariah as her only source for aid, she’ll soon find out if her abilities are strong enough to help her defy her Fate.
