First Shift by J.L. Weil
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Karina’s sole focus is on getting good grades so she can get out of town . . . until she’s attacked by a group of otherworldly beings, turns into a kitsune (fox), and is saved by Devyn. Devyn tells Karina that he’s there to protect her, and he needs her to save their world. She just has to do what no kitsune has done in over a century – grow nine tails. I guess college is off the table.
I found this story good, the pace fast, the romance nearly swoon-worthy. But as much as I wanted to love it, it just didn’t hit it for me. The story drops on a cliffhanger, which is expected, since this series is being done episodically.
But a great read, with a great premise, and interesting characters. There’s so much more to learn. You’ll just have to wait for all 9 books to come out to learn it all.
**This book had some language, and I have a feeling it will get pretty steamy as you go through the series.
And if you like shifters and/or kitsunes, then you should check out the new Shifter Academy series I’m a part of.
