This picks up shortly after the end of book one, and I’m going to try and do this without spoiling any of that book for you!
So in the first book, Aura’s boyfriend dies suddenly and she struggles with that and also some new feelings for the new Scottish student, Zachary. (I also have feelings for this new Scottish student … just saying)
In book two, Shift, Aura is focused on getting over the loss of Logan and moving on, and that seems to be the major focus here, even though there is a lot of other stuff going on.
This is where I express my frustrations. The back and forth, the indecisiveness, the dreaded love triangle… or quadrangle or whatever. This book is an example of why I don’t like them.
I’m not going to spoil anything here by saying anything about who/what/when/where/why but I will say irritated me to no end.
I really enjoyed the crux of this book and it’s actually really well done for a book 2 of a series. (typically I find them to be more transitional than informative) Quite a bit happens in this book, some of it shocking!
This series, though is a bit more than just a YA romance with some paranormal aspects. It really delves into how death can impact lives and how some people deal… and others don’t. I think the biggest message of this series is the idea that death will always be a part of life and getting through it and moving on with your life is an important part of the process.
This book has a bit of everything for everyone. Funny moments, cute moments, sweet and tender moments and even the sad moments all weave together seamlessly to create a wonderful story and I think anyone would enjoy this series. I’m very excited to see what the third and final book in this series has in store for me!
