Melissa's Review:

Lion's Share is book one in the Wildcats series. This series is a spinoff from Rachel Vincent's Shifters series. I loved the Shifters series, so knew I had to get this book when it came out. One of the young tabbies that were introduced to us in the Shifter series is the leading lady in Lion's Share. There is a free novella (Hunt) that starts this series if you're interested, I suggest grabbing it before you read this one since the events in it lead up directly to this book.

Abby Wade is your typical college girl, with the twist that she's one of the few tabbies in a shifter pack. When her pack leader, Jace Hammond, comes to get her for the break, she has to go. There have been some issues nearby them and they have to investigate. A rogue shifter (not part of the pack) is killing humans and leaving their bodies to be found. It's not good and puts the shifters on edge since it could expose them. Their investigation just leads to more issues and danger. On top of that, I knew Abby was hiding something but couldn't guess what until it was revealed. I love when the author does that and it's not out of left field.

Lion's Share has everything I could ask for in a paranormal romance, shifters, some romance, and mystery. I was so happy to get to revisit the Shifters world and I hope there are several more books in this series. Both of the leading characters were ones I was excited to see. Jace Hammond was one of my favorites so I was doing a happy dance when I saw he was the pack leader in this one! Abby has been dealing with traumatic events that happened years back that still affect her. It was nice to see how her character was years later. Though not required, I'd suggest you read the Shifter series before this series and I'd strongly recommend the novella I mentioned earlier since it's referred to several times. That being said, if you're a fan of the Shifters series, I think you'll love this spinoff!

  1. I have not read this one. I really need to. I loved the Shifters series. I was Team Jace in that series. Oh, well. Seems like he did finally get that HEA he needed.

    1. You'd probably be fine reading the novella then jumping into the series. I don't think it's on audio, at least not yet. I was Team Jace too hahaha

  3. Oooh thanks for the freebie alert and I think I'm going to like this at least! I haven't read Shifter but I'm guessing it won't be a problem?

  4. Wasn't she the scared lil kitten that Fayth found back in the other series? It's been so long since I've read that series. I need to revisit it before I read this one. I hope the author continues this series and doesn't leave it hanging. I remember being so heartbroken for Jace. So glad to see him get his moment.

  8. I'll admit to being absolutely infuriated with Shifters, and I could not STAND Jace. :p I was hoping he'd be killed off as soon as he was introduced. :p

  9. Even though I have not read these sorts of books, the temptation is strong. I think they would be fun to read and maybe even more fun to write.
