A Great Second Book.
This is book 2 of the series so may contain spoilers for book 1!!
In the last book we had a lot of characters to focus on but in this one it's mostly about Chris, which I loved because she was awesome in book 1!! Chris is a homicide detective and a great one at that, though she is rash and impulsive. This impulsiveness leads to Chris facing down a Shifter by herself and unfortunately she gets bitten. She wakes in hospital disoriented, with no memory of how she got there. Slowly her memory comes back and the doc has to tell her that her life is irrevocably changed. She wants to carry on as she was but being a Shifter there is so much she can't do, like be a cop!! With her life changed forever, all Chris wants to do is get revenge and end the life of the Shifter who is killing and changing people, including herself! How will Chris handle being a Shifter?? Well, you will have to read it to find out ;)
Now I really enjoyed book 1 and was eagerly looking forward to this. I'm glad to say that this is even better than the first. The fact that there are less POV helps as well. I loved Chris in book 1 and thought she was kick ass, but now she ends up as a Shifter she turns even more kick ass. She takes no prisoner!!! I felt for her when her life changed, she lost basically everything simply because she was a Shifter, but she doesn't let it keep her down. She dusts herself off and sets out to right wrongs. The author knows how to write a strong female lead.
Once again, Mark E Cooper has created an action packed and fast paced read. This man sure knows how to grab you and pull you in!! You are thrown into the action, along with the characters, from the very start and it's pretty much non stop all the time. There is so much going on in the story that I didn't want it to end. I sure hope there is more set in this amazing world!!
The audio was awesome as always though I did find it hard to truly enjoy Michael Naramores narration this time because being that the book is mainly from a female POV I thought it should of been a female reading it. DOn't get me wrong though, Michael did a great job as always and really has a range of tones, I just thought having a female would of added more. Saying that, I still highly recommend the audio because it does bring the story to life!

Another great listen!
I loved getting to send more time with lieutenant Chris Humber. She is a strong and hard headed person who i would love to read more about.
The writing and narration are really great. I was able to just lose myself in the story.
My favorite scene was when Chris changed for the first time.
I want another story in this series. I will keep a look out for more of Mark Coopers books.
