Book 2: Whoa! I totally didn't expect the ending to this one. I knew, Tamara Rose Blodgett would leave it in a cliff hanger, but I didn't expect what was going on with Talyn! The change in her best friend, Arden was a surprise! Merck, the hot werewolf is contemplating things and doing things that are pretty startling too! The characters are complex and dangerous. Their back stories are unique and interesting. The ending to this particular volume, in the series, leaves doors wide open. I don't know which direction this one is going. But, I'm on the edge of my seat, anticipating the next edition in the saga!
Book 3: If it weren't for the fact that this is building into an exciting and entertaining series (Not to mention, parts of it are hysterical!), I'd be angry at being left in another cliff hanger!
There are creatures, in this particular volume, that defy logic and take the series to an entirely new level. Tamara Rose Blodgett also lovingly touches on the lives of a couple other beloved characters from her Vampire series. I can't wait to see how that situation resolves itself. It's a regular bloody supernatural party!
Seriously, I love the intricacies of these characters. They're animated and passionate, frustrating and misunderstood. They each add another twist to a plot that, like her other books, cannot simply follow a straight line. Where would the fun be in that? It ended too soon and left me impatiently waiting for the next piece in the series. Thank you for another addition to this adventure.
I was given the ARC copy in exchange for an honest review. Obviously, I loved it! Remember that it is Part 3 in a series. You must read the first two in order to understand who the characters are and their motivations.
Book 4: Another wicked and delicious hit!!! I don't know where the author comes up with the ideas for some of the creatures in her series', but I am surprised every time! Without giving any spoilers, I love some of the twists and turns this one takes. Not only do we have the electricity and fire of Talyn, Merck and Drake, but there's exciting news concerning Narah and her mates. It's sexy and steamy with some danger and humor thrown in for good measure! I can't wait to see which direction our little changeling goes next! This is turning into one fantastic adventure!
Book 5: All of our favorite characters are back in full force! A Lycan, a Lanare and a Dragon are trying to figure out what to do with the relationship they're all in with each other. How she's going to work through this one, I don't know! They start out fighting, end up discussing the issues with Talyn between them, and it seems like things are going to some how come together. Then, all hell breaks loose...literally!
I don't know where Tamara Rose Blodgett gets these ideas, but between the dark place that produces some of the creatures in her books, the fascinating way all of them interact with each other, and the humor in between, it adds up to another exciting and dangerous story. Her characters draw me in and make me a part of their lives. I NEED to know what comes next. I want to see a happy-ever-after, but there's always a twist. The twist is what makes it interesting and engaging.
Book 6: I love it, and found it to be a fitting end to the series. I hope, however, that TRB picks it up again some day. I'd like to know if Talyn's baby makes a difference in the scheme of things. I'd like to know if things ever get straightened out between Merck and his kind. It's not like a claim can be helped when the compulsion becomes more than a simple change. I'd love to see Drake and Merck as fathers to Talyn's child. And, we still didn't get to see how things worked out with Narah and her mates. More than anything, I'd like to know who The First Species is and where they fit into all of this.
Ah...so many questions answered and so many more to answer, but this is the way way of the author's mind. I love the crossover characters from the vampire novels, and the story would not let me escape its clutches. I can't wait to see what she has for us next! Thank you, TRB, for an intriguing adventure!
Lycan Alpha Claim #1: I smirk. I can't say I hate the process. 5 stars
Can't say I would either! WOW!! What a fangtastic bite! It's a wonderful bit of werewolf lore. NOT!! That is a line more suited to whence it came - the story itself because this is so much more that “just” a wonderful bit of werewolf lore! This is one gritty, passionate & intense story that I CANNOT get enough of! This is not for the faint of heart, but WOW!! Is it ever hot & PAWESOME! This story is bold, hot, a no-holds-barred kind of wolf tail and giving it that raw edge is the first person narration. I love just how unique this story is with it being set in the future, with cool future tech, laws, and more, but of course the part that was my favorite – everything about her werewolves! Their history, process, way of life, pack rules, etc. It just all flows pawfectly together into one helluva story that I can't wait to see what happens next! Tamara had me under her spell right from the cover, let alone the actual story, but that story - it has me panting for more! Tamara is definitely a FANGTABULOUS author who has grabbed my attention and I cannot wait to read ALL of her books! Which I will be doing while waiting for the next installments in this GRRRIFIC series!
Lycan Alpha Claim #2: Oh my God—it's supernatural week. 5 FANGS
WHOOOOWEEE that line says it all! Ain't it great to be a reader these days! Or at least if you are reading Tamara / Marata books it is! Has T/M ever outdone herself & herself this time with the hilarious one-liners...especially since they aren't meant to be funny! "Where the hell is my eunuch friend?" Or "Get a grip, Merck." ummmm I'm over here if you need someone to get a grip onto. There are so many more but I don't want to give too much away. Or anything for that matter. This is such a passionately intense story that I find it hard to find fault with it! Other than the obvious, that is - it's a serial! I am not a patient reader at the best of times, but to have this fangerrific story doled out in short parts every 6 wks or so!?! Now THAT is pure torture! Especially with how we were left 'hanging' on this one. snort (trust me, that will make you giggle once you have read this part) I cannot believe how many twists & turns this one has. So many times I either snickered at the one-liners or gasped at the WTF moments. Tamara is one exceptionally gifted author who embodies everything it means to captivate a reader to the point that they are utterly consumed by her work! I am wholly & completely blown away with how unique, amazing and captivating this story arc is! I cannot wait to read the rest of this one! September 7 cannot come soon enough! (is it Sept.7th yet?)
Lycan Alpha Claim #3: I'm not me anymore, but something new. 5 stars
AAAAARRRGGHHH! FRACK Tamara!! This is such an intensely dark & gritty tail that is so FURTASTICALLY unique it has me so FUROCIOUSLY addicted & obsessed to the point it is killing me to have to wait for the rest of the story!!! So many different creatures, so many different abilities, so many funny bits, so many hot or almost hot parts, so many great lines & phrases, so much creativity like NOTHING I have ever read before! There are so many surprises, twists & turns making it impossible to guess what will happen next! You might think that it sounds almost too ambitious, however with Tamara’s PAWMAZING writing, it all works so WOLFTASTICALLY PURRFECT to bind you into the story, so deep into the story that you hunger for more! Curses on these serials! I am so amped up that I don't want to stop, I CAN'T STOP reading it! Well, okay fine! I do have to stop until the next part is released, but I don't have to like it! And yes, I have re-read these 3 parts more than once (or twice) already! YES! This story truly is this PAWESOME, this WOLFELICIOUS, this PAWSITIVELY FANGTABULOUS, THIS ALL-CONSUMING!! It utterly blows me away with how exceptionally gifted & phenomenally talented Tamara truly is!! I love most of the books that I read, but there are only a few that touch me deep down into my paranormal soul and this is one of them! It brings you a deeply intense, darkly rich story that grabs you and pulls you into the dark underbelly side of the Paranormal that is all Tamara and doesn't let you go! I cannot wait for the last part to be released, beyond the most obvious answer of wanting to see how it plays out, but so that I can read this entire story all at once, from its sexy & furry head to the very tip of its hard & gritty tail! OVER & OVER again for years to come!!!
Lycan Alpha Claim #4: Talyn, the woman, doesn't know that. 5 stars
But the wolf hiding underneath my skin does. When he holds out his hand, something inside me dies. My humanity. WHOA!! I did not see that coming at all! WOW!! I have no idea where Tamara is taking this but what a helluva ride!!! They say it's not about the destination but the journey that gets you there. Well, this is one thrill ride of a journey to end all journeys! And it’s not yet over!!! I cannot believe how consumed I am with this series! So much so that the wait between releases is all but killing me! Tamara has gone well beyond 'just' writing a story. She has created this dark, raw, gritty & hot, oh so VERY HOT world where so many different types of paranormals exist!! Of course, they are all wanting to change Talyn who only wants to go back a week to when she was blissfully ignorant of all of this and just be Talyn the Human. Too bad that everyone fighting for her doesn't want her, doesn't want happily ever after, they just want to breed her. Or do they? I have no idea what will happen, but for some reason I want it to happen with Merck. He's so, I don't know...all sexy Changer! I think is mostly because the story is told in first person mode from 3 different characters - Merck, Talyn & Narah - which is easy to follow. All of this and more, enriches the story to epic proportions! To lighten the story, there's humor sprinkled throughout which had me in stitches a time or 4! I probably laughed at some that weren’t maybe meant as funny, but it’s one of those things that when you are so engrossed in the story and something surprises you, you bark out a HA! or 3! Tamara and her phenomenal talent have blown me away with this series! My only 'complaint' is that I discovered this series with Lycan Alpha Claim #1 not having been released yet, and since I can't possibly NOT read each part as its released, I have to keep waiting for Tamara to write & release each part!! Okay, that isn't a 'real' complaint, but this is such a FANGTASTIC & WOLFTACULAR series and I am beyond impatient and NEED to keep reading!!! Told you Tamara has me consumed with this series! And with each part I keep falling deeper & deeper into the PAWMAZING, gritty, darker & oh so very sexy Lycan cave! One that I never want to leave!!
Shifter (nee Lycan) Alpha Claim #5: I have claimed you. 5 GOLD STARS
It was right. You were right—with me. HOLY SHIFT! What an effenly FURRIFIC continuation of a LYCANTASTIC story!!! It is this raw, gritty, dark and hot WOLFTASTIC story that I have ABSO-FURRY-LUTELY fallen in love with!! It is told from multiple viewpoints but there is no CLAWS for concern or worry! Not only does Tamara have it all labeled, but she does it so PAWFECTLY so you know whose thoughts and viewpoint you are living at that moment, which of course enriches the story even more! (which I really didn’t even think was possible!!!) I don't even know where or how to begin a spoiler-free review of this part, so pardon me if this is shorter than usual. Plus I am eager to read the last part!!! So very many twists, turns, surprises, shocks and what-the-shift moments, it's impossible to guess or accurately predict the outcome of even the 'small' parts!! This story has evolved into one SHIFTACULARLY FANGTASTIC adventure of epic proportions! I am utterly and wholly consumed, mind, body, heart & soul! With her phenomenal talent, Tamara has me so obsessed with this series that it is next to IMPAWSSIBLE to stop thinking about it! I even randomly read a part here and there!! In fact, I read each part before starting the new one, partly as a refresher but mostly because I want to!! I have read this 5th part about 3 or 4 times already!! But the PAWESOME part of reading each part over & over again is that I discover or rediscover things I didn't notice or remember in past reads. So now I am drowning in drool for the ending!!
Shifter (nee Lycan) Alpha Claim #6: If you truly love someone, 5 GOLD ALPHA CLAIM STARS
you want what's best for them—not what's best for you. Love is selfless. WOW! OH WOW! SIMPLY WOWOHWOW!! This is the single most FANGTABULOUS, most WOLFTASTIC, most SHIFTACULAR end of a serial/series EVER! It is this raw, gritty, dark and hot FURRIFIC story that I have ABSO-FURRY-LUTELY fallen in love (& lust) with!! I was so eager to see how it played out that I couldn't fully concentrate on the story!! I kept reading, but it was more like skimming, so I was constantly back-tracking trying to figure out this or that comment/action/etc. Finally I just gave in and kept skimreading until I got to the end, then started all over again. And again..and again! Yup! It was so WOLFELICIOUS that I read it a full 4 times! I love Tamara’s sense of humor, the colorful language, the creativeness of… well… EVERYTHING!!!! There is so much more I want to say to share my love of this truly GRRRRANDE FURNALE of the series, but I am afraid of spoiling something!! This ending was PAWFECT! Super surprising, but PAWFECT! I love the variety of shifter as well as their abilities, powers, histories, aspects, laws & rules. I have to admit that the one part I expected to happen, never did! WHOA! That is yet one more reason why I love this story as well as Tamara/Marata! With her phenomenal talent she had me pulled into this story even before it was released!! Then once I started reading it, I became obsessed with it! But in next to no time, it's much more accurate to say I was consumed by this LYCANTASTIC Brief Bites series! And yes, I do hate the wait between parts, but huMAN oh wolfMAN! Does Tamara ever ease the pain with her genuine gift for crafting such SHIFTABULOUS stories that are IMPAWSSIBLE to stop loving, let alone put down! Tamara has very quickly become one of my favorite authors and a new addition to my Favorite Authors bookshelf!! I AM 100% ADDICTED to Tamara/Marata’s writing styles, and of course it doesn’t hurt that they have “Vampire”, “Lycan” or “Shifter” in the titles! So now I cannot wait to go back and catch up on all of her other stories – especially Narah's story - Vampire Alpha Claim!!!
I absolutely Loved Shifter (Alpha Claim Series) it was beyond amazing. The fast paced action, the incredibly entertaining characters, the delicious humor and the brilliant writing make this one of the best stories I have enjoyed to read.
I enjoyed the wild action packed ride that was Merck, Drake and Talyn.I thoroughly enjoyed all the appearances of Narah and Aeslin and Matthews and Murphy and all the additional mutable's, prehistoric's and shifters.
I would most definitely would want more!!! Please let there be more!!!
All up I thoroughly enjoyed that story as a whole and cannot wait for what Tamara/Marata comes up with next it is sure to be brilliant!!!
