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. 

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.

Review: I loved it! Even more than I loved Shade! Ahhh! Shift dived right into so many of the questions I had from Shade!!! I was so excited that we kept getting closer and closer to the truth! Ok, I kinda have to talk about Aura, Zack & Logan before I can get to all that. So I really love Aura and Zack! I do. So the whole thing with Zack being mad at Aura over Logan during the whole 15 minutes when he became solid was killing me!! I absolutely love Zack and Aura together!I hated them not talking and only seeing each other for their project. Though I absolutely loved those moments they had. Lol. Logan... Honestly. I just wanted him to move on. It was bugging me so much that he was constantly finding a way between Aura and Zack. I mean he was a freakin ghost! Let her be with someone that's alive! I found it really interesting that when Aura & Zack would kiss he would be able to see ghosts for a little while and she would repel them afterwards. I still don't get why that's happening. OMG! Zacks dad getting cancer, that must suck so badly. I felt so bad for Zack when we found that out.

After Eowyn left! Letting Aura and Zack find the missing journal pages! AHHH!!! We learned so much about Aura in them! Her dad, OMG!!! HER DAD!!! Not gonna spoil it for those who haven't read it but OMG!!!!!!!! Lol. Not to mention all that stuff dealing with the Shine. We learned so much from it. Like how neither Zack's parents or Aura's mom should have been able to have kids until the Shine happened. The Shine made it possible for both Zack and Aura to be born! I was beyond shocked at that! Though it did show that somehow they truly are connected! I absolutely loved the end with Aura and Zack! They finally showed their true feelings!!!! AHHHH! Took them long enough!!!! Lol.

5 Stars!


  1. I haven't seen a lot of reviews for this one. I am glad that you liked it so much. I will have to check it out. Another great review.

  2. Tehehheeee.... I knew you'd love this one! I agree with you on the Logan Issue (move. the heck. on!) But I did love the parts where they were ansgry at each other - I guess I like the characters to be miserable before their happy ending!

    We've learned so much stuff about the Shine that I can't wait for the last book to come out. What will happen, do you think?

    Great review!

  3. Hehehe... I so loved Zach and Aura and want to be together... (that's because I want Logan for myself! haha!) Don't get me wrong, I love Zach and he's swoon-worthy but I have this soft spot for Logan and I ached for him so much. The moment he talked about Aura and the time he died just made me love him more. Zach and Logan really rocks. I love both guys. I love Shade boys =) Great review Brittani! I can't agree with you more than I do now. We both loved Shift!


Feel free to leave comments :) I like hearing from everyone.
