The story has already been examined by previous reviewers so I will focus more on the writing.
Ms. Cross is an author I have read before both in short story format and in Oceans of Red Volume One and Two. I have not been disappointed with any of the works I have read by her. Each time the story telling has had the tight, clean and crisp writing that is the hallmark of a good writer. She knows her craft and provides the reader with just the right amount of information on the characters back stories to let us get to know and understand their motivation without being wordy or superfluous. Ms. Cross is a master at the "show don't tell" rules of writing and it is once again evident in Birthright. Her books are always cleanly edited and you would have to spend a good deal of time looking to find many editing, spelling, grammar or punctuation errors. She obviously takes pride in her work and makes the effort to present a clean copy. Something lacking in many Indie and E-published authors. I always enjoy her work and this one does not disappoint.
I recommend this to anyone who likes paranormal romance, good mysteries and interesting characters. It was a good read and I quite enjoyed getting to know Liz and Michael and hope to see them again in future.

In Birthright, I will say the one aspect that impacted me most was Liz's journey and growth. She had to go a long way in a short time...which she did swiftly and with grace. Nice. I also found the interactions between Liz and her fellow characters compelling. Angie, Liz's sidekick and bff, is surprising, uplifting and silly all at once. And Michael, Liz's partner...oh sweet Mother-Of-Imaginary-Eye-Candy...thank you for him! Tough, strong, and yet great with caring for children (even though he won't admit it), Michael is the perfect man. Seriously. He's perfect. I also love little Jenna...the five year old girl who will steal your heart from the very moment you meet her. Oh...I don't want to forget the witches. Yay for the witches! Without them, some of what the vampires do could never be accomplished. Also, there's Brogan. I won't tell you much about him (spoilers), let's just say he is unforgettable. You won't want to miss him.
There you go. The cast of Birthright is unforgettable. You will cheer for them, feel for them, sometimes get annoyed at their choices. It's exactly like how you feel with your friends in real life - minus the bloodsucking. :)
I give the book five-stars and highly recommend it.
I read numerous books from this genre and did not realize, until I read this book, how predictable many of books are getting. Usually with the first hint of foreshadowing and I have already guessed what will happen next. So when it does happen, unfortunately I find myself saying "I saw that coming". This book was nothing like that. Just when I thought I knew what was going to happen, a surprise was right around the corner that I did not see coming. After a while I just stopped assuming what was going to happen, and just held on for the ride. And this book is most definitely a thrill ride. The romance was there, but it is not what made the story, it was just a part of the action that kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time.
I also love, love, love, how the author changed perpectives often. You aren't limited to seeing the story unfold from just one or two characters' point of view. Instead you get a 360 degree view of everything going on from all of those involved. As everything unfolds, you feel as if you are really there experiencing everything yourself all at once. I absolutely loved that I got to see more than one point of view and opinion on the events taking place and was able to relate to more than just one character.
I can not say much more because I will start giving stuff away and ruin the next readers journey through the pages....but this is not a book that you sit down and just read. It is a book that you EXPERIENCE as you place yourself in the plot and are right there fighting along with all of the charcters.
You think you know........but you don't....so read it and find out!!!!!!!
