This is a pretty good book, which could be an awesome one with a bit more time spent on editing. The ending was a bit sudden and left too much up in the air for my liking (yes, even for a series) but the rest was good other than the already mentioned need for more editing. An enjoyable read over all though.

HASH(0xa7fc289c) out of 5 stars Lexia and her confessions as a teenage drama queen. May 15 2014
By MRay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I absolutely hate giving a bad review. In fact, this will only be my second but I just couldn’t finish this book. In fact, after reading 30% of the book I returned it for a refund. So, where do I start?

Ok, before I go into the negatives let me say that the idea behind the book was good. It had a lot of potential and could have truly been a gripping story but as I have found, oftentimes it really is all about the execution.

First of all, the formatting was all over the place and words were either repeated or were missing altogether. I had a very difficult time trying to decipher what the characters were saying because sometimes almost complete sentences were missing!! I bought a book of fiction. If I wanted a puzzle book, I would’ve bought one!! I am absolutely appalled with the editing or really the lack thereof. When I purchase a book I expect it to be at least half-way grammatically correct. I also agree with another reviewer who mentioned that the author used “whilst” a lot, although that didn’t really bother me much.

Then there’s Lexia. She’s supposed to be 19 but behaves like a 12 year old. I understand that she’s just coming into her powers and has nobody to guide her but flying off the handle at the drop of a hat or getting drunk and almost doing the nasty with a stranger??? She misses classes and lies to her father about attending them and do you want to guess where he works? Yep, her school! Her idea of dealing with her powers is to go clubbing, getting drunk, and retail therapy. She works as a waitress at a local diner. Just where is she getting the money for all this?? 30% into the book I came to the conclusion that I just couldn’t suffer through one more page of her bipolar behavior.

Now Lincoln’s character had potential but I quickly realized that his POV read almost exactly like Lexia’s. I didn’t feel like he really had a “voice” of his own in the book and that totally ruined it for me. Lincoln is supposed to be 23 and since his voice is almost the same as Lexia’s, he comes off as a 12 year old as well. Sigh....

Finally, let me address the whole dual POV aspect in this book. I love books that have dual POVs because they give depth to the characters. In this book figuring out whose POV I was reading was a total nightmare. Instead of the POVs being separated by chapters or even their names, they would just go to the next paragraph. So, one paragraph you may be reading Lexia’s POV and in the next it would be Lincoln’s POV. Or would it? I don’t know because it was so confusing!

I know this book received a lot of positive reviews (which is why I purchased it) but please be careful. Don’t make the same mistake I did. Get a sample of the book first. If you still like the way the story unfolds in the first few chapters then....I hope you enjoy the rest of the book. If you barely manage to finish the sample then…..you’re welcome. ;)

Format: Paperback
I received this book in exchange for an honest review (LoP). The book starts off with a BANG with the main heroine Lexia showing the readers her kick ass moves. Already, the authors makes the readers wonder what is going on with Lexia. This introduction really grabbed my attention and kept me captivated especially with the author's great writing style. However, after a few chapters, my attention faded bit by bit. I found that the whole story seemed disconnected and sometimes all over the place. I also found that the characterization and relationship between the characters lack the depth that I was looking for, which made it hard for me to connect with any of the characters. For example, the closeness between the father and daughter was not explored more; therefore, I didn't feel the emotional stress the heroine was experiencing when her and her dad started having issues. There were also instances that I found the main heroine a little infuriating especially when she is overreacting with certain things. For example, I really didn't understand why she over reacted so much when Lincoln came by her school. The steamy scenes (lots of them) really took me off guard because when the book started, it seemed like these scenes would not happen. I mean, I do enjoy those types of scenes but I felt that the buildup of the sexual tension was not enough that when it actually happened, it just felt blasé. The ending did surprise me and if I did connect with the characters, I would have been more affected by it.

All in all, it was an OK read. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys shifters and kick ass heroines. Although my review is not spectacular as others, other readers may have other expectations and would really enjoy this book.

HASH(0xa862e504) out of 5 stars A Must Read! Very Fun, Sexy, and Fresh! July 26 2013
By Krystle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I was given this early release copy by the author for an honest review and.....I freakin loved it!!!
This is Rachel Raithby's debut book, and it really seems like she's been writing for years; it was that good!

Lexia seems like your normal/basic teenager that's about to graduate, until 3 vampires corner and attack her; she knows her life is over then from out of nowhere she realizes that she has these 'Superhuman Traits' and is able to defeat them with her bare hands. Off in the distance, a shifter-panther named Lincoln watches and can't believe what he's seeing. A Hunter.... Who's trained to kill off his kind.. He wants to kill her, but he wants to learn a little bit about her first so he starts hanging around, pretending to be passing thru town. What he wasn't expecting was for Lexia to be so alive, so to speak, you'll know what I mean when you read his meaning for her, and he falls for her.

"He smiled at her but there was nothing friendly about it, the kind of smile that whispered of danger and excitement."

The chemistry that these two have for each other is OHMIGOD!!! It was pretty hot! Like...Really hot! I was not expecting that at all, reading along, reading, reading....and whoa...WHOA!!! I loved it! :) I liked Lexia's Best friend Alice as well, hopefully we'll see more of her in the next book since she's now a huge part of Lex's and Linc's supernatural world.

I really loved how Ms. Raithby had Lincoln able to shift at will, and he could become part panther, instead of full on panther. For instance, his claws would rip thru his fingertips so he could climb as human form, etc... That was pretty neat and different, also loved how he would light up all over when he did shift. When Lexia would go in 'Hunter Mode' I swear, I could picture her becoming more buff, taller, faster, just deathly with her eyes blazing yellow. She described the fight scenes very well, I could picture them all fighting in my head like watching a movie.. Let's just say that I hope Lexia's evil B**** mother gets what she deserves, HA!

Rachel's writing is very fresh and fun,
Can't wait for the next installment to this great series!!!!

HASH(0xa78fa5b8) out of 5 stars Hunters, Shifters and Love Oh My! Aug. 31 2013
By Karen Peacock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Wow, what can I say other than amazing! This was a great start to a new series! I wasn't entirely sure where this story was going at the beginning. It starts off at a fast pace and doesn't let up until it is finished, although there is a bit of a cliffhanger at the end of the book. This book is filled with mystery, suspense, heartache, sexual tension, love, compassion and strong emotional connections.

Lexia was just your average student or so she thought and she began to discover she had powers that she was unaware that she possessed. Lincoln was a shifter and set out to harm her, but that changed very quickly as he discovered more about her.

An action filled story with Hunters and Shifters, Rachel takes you on a journey that you will not be able to put down. Rachel's character development is so strong, you feel like you are right there experiencing everything and the imagery she creates is beautiful. Lexia and Lincoln's attraction is undeniable and it takes you back to those moments in your life when you first fell in love. This book is for mature audiences as it is filled with many very passionate scenes throughout.

One of my favorite excerpts:

"I love you Lex, please believe me. I know I've done wrong, but I will spend the rest of my life making it up to you. You... Are... Mine," he breathed into her mouth. He wrapped his arms around her and she nuzzled her head into his neck falling into a dreamless sleep. She woke the next morning feeling the happiest she'd been in a long while."

I would highly recommend this book to anyone that loves a good paranormal story with a great love story! I would add Rachel Raithby to your list of authors to watch for in the future. She is truly amazing! Thank you Rachel for gifting me a copy of your book, I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and can't wait for the next one!

HASH(0xa78fa768) out of 5 stars New hunter book! July 27 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I loved this book! First let me start off by saying why I loved this book. It was a unique, with an amazing story line, and I love the character. The characters make the story perfect, love Lexia and watch her handle the changes of her life, and let's not forget Lincoln who helps her and basically catches her and to find what I mean you're just going have to read the book. I don't think anyone would be disappointed with this book has romance, action, a little mystery as you join the characters on their journey to find the truth and about each other. The style of writing the author wrote this book is what I really like because it told the story very well gave you the sense that you were with the Lexia and feeling her strong emotions come off the page as your reading. Also liked how the author at time would give us Lincoln's point of view to understand him more, and of course love him. What I really love was that the author created a new world and book for me to get lost in. Just sucked me right in from the first words, wanting to know more of what was going to happen, love romance and action together but throw some paranormal in it with creatures of the night and I am a sucker.
So I give this book five big stars, because it was an amazing read, that I could get lost in. The story has romance, action, and of course paranormal. With some twist of course that make unique so if you like all that you will love this book like I did and now I'm anxiously waiting for the next one in the series. I need to know what happens! Need more of the characters, especially Lincoln, he is such a great character and Lexia to with her strength, I like reading about a strong powerful chick that can hold her own. Fans of paranormal will love to get lost in this book is all I'm saying, so grab it up.
I received this book from LoP in exchange for my honest review.
