Shift Cover Reveal!

Shift by M. R. Merrick is the sequel to Exiled and is the second instalment in The Protector series. We absolutely love this series and are aching to read SHIFT but, for now, we will basque in the awesomeness that is the cover:

So what do you think? When I [Dayna] first saw it, it left me speechless and then all that came out of my mouth were just nonsensical words. No joke. I just…ohhh I’m in love! It’s just amazing and captures the atmosphere of the series beautifully. We at Secret Lives can’t wait to delve in to the world of the The Protector series once more. We’re so excited!

Not only do we have the cover reveal for you -nope that’s not all- but we also thought you’d like to see what’s in store for you when you come to read SHIFT. Here is the blurb (Because this is the sequel there is a spoiler -a big one- so look away now if you don’t like your spoilers. Scroll down ’til we say you can look again :-p ):

“Devastated by the loss of his mother, Chase is trying to balance the life he’s been left with, a family he’s still getting to know, and power he never thought he’d have. He doesn’t understand why the Goddess has named him the Protector and granted him two gifts: the Mark, a tattoo that now covers his back, and the ring. But between getting interrogated by the Circle and psychic attacks from Riley, the Mark is the least of his concern. There’s a demon inside Rayna that’s fighting to be released, and it’s not her inner witch. It’s something else–a monster threatening to tear her apart.

As Chase struggles to control his magic, his enemies are closing in. Everyone has staked a claim on his ring, and destroying it may be his only chance to stop Riley. But Chase must decide if stopping him is worth risking the lives of everyone he cares about, or if protecting the ring will be enough to save his world.”


For those of you who haven’t read Exiled and would like to know more about it, we thought we’d also include the blurb for that book in this post too so here ya go:

“Chase Williams is a demon hunter in the Circle, or at least he was supposed to be. On his fifteenth birthday, Chase stepped up to the altar to claim his elemental power, but it never came. Elemental magic is passed down to a hunter through the bloodline, but on Chase’s birthday, the bloodline stopped.

Exiled without the Circle’s protection, Chase has spent two years trying to survive a world riddled with half-demons and magic. When he has a run in with a frightened and seemingly innocent demon, he learns the Circle’s agenda has changed: the Circle plans to unlock a portal and unleash pure-blood demons into the world. Vowing to stop them, and knowing he can’t do it alone, Chase forms a reluctant alliance with Rayna — a sexy witch with an attitude and a secret.

In their attempt to stop them, Chase and Rayna find themselves in the middle of the Circle’s plan, leaving one of them to decide what their friendship is worth, and the other’s life depending on it.”
