(summary taken from Goodreads)

Even though I finished this book a few days ago, I still can't get it out of my head! It's one of those rare sequels that are so much better than the first.

I can't even tell you how much I adore the first book, Shade (except if you read my review here, I guess), and it's so hard to believe that Shift can beat that! I became even more attached to all the characters in this book because they're all so real and well-developed.

This series is home to one of the most fascinating worlds I've ever read about where anyone born after the Shift (which occurred sixteen years ago) can see violet-hued ghosts. And this book just takes world-building to a whole new captivating level! We're finally getting into the mystery of the Shift, and I have to say that my mind was literally reeling.

Completely original and utterly compelling, Shift was a book that caught me hook, line, and sinker. Jeri Smith-Ready has a literal skill for creating awesome (albeit very steamy) novels. I honestly started to cry at one point it was that intense! This series is a must-read!

BUY or BORROW?: This is a book you should definitely have on your shelf! :)
