Aura’s life is anything but easy. Her boyfriend, Logan, died, and his slides between ghost and shade have left her reeling. Aura knows he needs her now more than ever. She loves Logan, but she can’t deny her connection with the totally supportive, totally gorgeous Zachary. And she’s not sure that she wants to.SHADE left me wanting to read SHIFT and SHIFT left me wanting to read SHINE. Poor Aura just has so much on her plate. She doesn't know exactly who she is or how she became who she is. The love of her life is dead and he wont pass on. She is falling for someone else that is actually living and doesn't know how to handle it. Her feelings take a big role in SHIFT, dissecting them and deciding what she wants. With the help of Zachary she finally starts to chip away at what her mom was hiding from everyone and who what she is and what happened at Newgrange. I really hope this is the end of Logan being in her life. I really like Aura and Zachary together and the more they find out and go through together the more they seem to belong to each other. I was shocked, delighted, heartbroken and attached to the story throughout the whole book. The final book is set up perfectly at the end and the conclusion I can already tell is going to be totally worth the wait.
Logan and Zachary will fight to be the one by her side, but Aura needs them both to uncover the mystery of her past—the mystery of the Shift.
As Aura’s search uncovers new truths, she must decide whom to trust with her secrets…and her heart.
I gave it 5/5 stars
