BLOG TOUR, REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY - Shifter: City of Wolves by Avery Burch

Book & Author Details:

Shifter: City of Wolves by Avery Burch
Publication date: August 3rd 2015
Genres: Adult, Paranormal Romance


He'll risk anything to be inside me. I'm his fated mate. 


What the hell am I thinking? I can't fall for a wolf. He's a criminal and an outcast. I'm an elite. If we get caught, they'll destroy us. I'll be disgraced. He'll be tortured and killed. But his wolf instinct has locked on me. He says I'm his fated mate. And every time we're alone together, he melts my heart ... and makes me so wet I'll risk anything to feel him throb inside me.

Everything they told me about fated mates is true. And that means I'm in a lot of trouble. I'm risking everything. As a shifter, I'm used to living on the edge. The regime wants me dead. But now it's so much more complicated. I'm obsessed with this girl. I can't get her out of my mind. I need to devour her, body and soul. I know I should resist, for her sake as much as my own, but I physically can't. My wolf lust has locked onto her. There's no way we get out of this alive, but one night inside her will be worth any punishment.



3 out of 5 (good)

This story reminded me of a cross between Hunger Games and a sort of Twilight! You have a society that is split into different categories, sometimes categories within categories, dependent upon who you are - Normal, Shifters, Elite, Autocrat for example. The Elite have their own guarded places where Normals aren't allowed to be. Of course, once you tell someone they can't, they will!

The theme of 'insta-love' runs through the book, although in this case it is Fated Mates and, as gets explained in the book, you won't understand it unless you are either a shifter or a mate.

The timing is a bit mixed up, enough that I have to mention it. I understand that love (or lust) can be overpowering but their timing is almost laughable. If you are in the middle of a purge, with people being killed all around, are you really going to overtaken with the urge to give (or receive) a bj? Really? I mean, REALLY??!!

On the whole, I enjoyed this book with the various characters and would enjoy reading more about them. I do think the timing issue might be one for the author to think about though.
