Publisher's Summary

Can a woman find two Alpha soul mates in one lifetime?

Talyn Phisher is a counselor in a world that has been turned on its ear by an unthinkable discovery: vampires roam among humans.

If all this upheaval was not enough, Talyn's body is changing. Signs that something is seriously wrong plague her. Having been told she's barren and there's no hope - Talyn still longs for a family of her own, though the stories she hears from clients tell her happiness is a long shot.

Talyn wants that shot. She yearns for a man who will put her first - for who she is.

Until a stalker's pursuit threatens everything close to Talyn's heart.

When Talyn feels her life is in imminent danger, she reaches out in desperation to the Final Enforcement, an elite, fringe group of the police who do more than take the law into their own hands.

Only to discover Talyn isn't what she thinks she is.

And neither is the one who stalks her.

Shifter is the first volume of six episodic novelettes in the Alpha Claim serial.

Shifter: Alpha Claim 1


This book was a short story about a female hybrid human / lycan who hasn't been changed yet. First in the series, might be worth litening to more if this is your genre. I'd give it a go.

The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed.

Sexy and interesting

Any additional comments?

Shifter is an explicit adult supernatural romance/erotic thriller that's relatively well written but contains elements that are a bit too similar to television's "True Blood" (such as the people who like vampires being called Fang Bangers).
Having heard the first four stories in this six-episode tale, it weaves an interesting who'll-do-it tale that plays on the fantasy of having two people fight over you. In this instance however, the men fight over the female lead for sex. The dubious setup prevents her from just being a piece of meat however, because it's only through sex that her life can be saved as her body transitions into something new!
Tamara Rose Blodgett and Marata Eros make a good writing team and provide enough intrigue to keep the story interesting across the multiple episodes. Narrator Holly Elise does a fine job, however this is one book that could have benefited more from a male reader. The reason for this is that the story unfolds through the first-person view of multiple characters. We learn immediately that the main character is female, but it's almost an hour into the book before we discover the second perspective is being told by a male. By then I'd incorrectly assumed I was listening to a lesbian love story!!
This review copy audiobook was provided by the author/narrator/publisher free of charge via Audiobook Boom, along with volumes 2, 3 and 4. I'm keen to see how it all winds up over the final two volumes, which is a recommendation in itself.

Fascinating story

Very intriguing continuing story about shifters and their escapes. I’m quite fond of Marata Eros stories. Tamara Rose Blodgett is new to me. Holly Elise Did quite well. Steamy and fascinated until the end.

TBC Interesting Shifter Serial

Listened to audio narrated by well Holly Elise.

This is a part of one of a six part series. It's a short novelette about a hybrid werewolf that has no idea what she is but she's about to learn. This review is a bit spoilery.

Dr. Talyn Phisher is a counselor, she helps others while feeling frustrated and out of sorts with her body. She 35 doesn't realize she's about to go through the change, she just knows her joints ache and her body doesn't seem her own anymore. She also seems to have attracted some unwanted attention, being attacked in her office and being followed by a strange man with blue eyes.

Merck is a lycan warrior changer, he's been assigned to follow Talyn and assist her in her change. When she is attacked he goes against protocol and steps in to protect her.

When law enforcement doesn't take her attack seriously Talyn goes to Final Enforcement who enlighten Talyn on who she really is and all hell breaks loose.

I have to say I'm not a fan of serials but since I have the next few books ready, I'm okay with it because everything in this first segment captured my interest. I like that Talyn is a smart and successful woman, dealing with her life and perceived challenges. I don't think Merck was given enough time on the page but the time he did have made me want to know more about him.

I received a free copy of this book and I'm voluntarily leaving a review. If you like my reviews you can find me at wordpress under wyldheartreads

I Don't Get It


I cannot make myself care about shifter/paranormal topics, no matter how hard I try. However, I really try to listen to the entirety of this book but could not.

I listened to this book long enough to judge the authors and narrators cadence. If you like these type of romances, this is one that is well written and performed. Beyond that I cannot comment on more than the first 30 minutes. This is a cliffhanger.

*I received this work in exchange for my review; good, bad or meh. I've written all 3 kinds.

Consider following me on audible. I review from most genres.

Rubbish

Will not be putting this author on my “to read” list so disappointing it sounded very good in the write up.
