Hello Everyone! Today I am participating in the Shift (FirstBorn Trilogy,Book2) by Raine Thomas tour! I am so excited about this…so below check out the book promo and I also share a review of Shift!
Having the ability to shapeshift, Sophia is familiar with change. But even she feels the rising tension in her homeland.
A shadowy male and deadly beast reside in their midst. The births of the newest Kynzesti loom. Hostile Mercesti continue to hunt for the Elder Scroll, and a traumatized female is too afraid to use her abilities to stop them.
Topping off Sophia’s stress is Quincy, the male she’s convinced can’t stand her. She rues the loss of their friendship, but can’t figure out how to move past it. She’ll soon learn, however, that mending that rift bears more significance than she ever imagined.
The search for the Elder Scroll takes on unexpected urgency, and Sophia finds herself in a race across the mainland. To stop the Mercesti led by Eirik, she and her companions must get past their differences and unite against them. If they don’t, Eirik will acquire the immense power he seeks, and two of the beings Sophia loves most will die

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Raine Thomas is the author of the exciting and original series of YA fantasy/romance novels about the Estilorian plane. Her passion for writing prompted her to earn her bachelor’s degree in English with a focus in Creative Writing from Georgia State University, then her master’s degree in Humanities from Central Michigan University. She is also a proud member of Romance Writers of America.
Residing in Orlando, Florida, Raine is a hopeless romantic with a background in the fields of mental health and wedding planning…two areas that intersect far more than one would think. Her years working with children and adolescents with emotional and behavioral challenges inspired her to create young protagonists who overcome their own conflicts. When she isn’t writing or glued to e-mail or social networking sites, Raine can usually be found vacationing with her husband and daughter on one of Florida’s beautiful beaches or crossing the border to visit with her Canadian friends and relatives
I have followed Ms. Raine’s works from the first book Becoming; this is where I fell in love the new world and characters that she created. So it is a joy to have read Shift which proved to be just as great as it’s predecessors… Shift follows the tale of one of the children of the original cast from the Daughters Of Saraquel trilogy, Sophia. Sophia has always felt “different” from the others in her family, smaller, she felt more fragile, and she also hated how she was fairer than the others, in fact Sopia felt herself a freak! But she grew up with her families closeness and acceptance, and her best friend Quincy, a friend of the family, who also was her closest counter part while growing.
But Sophia noticed a change in their relationship when she finally obtained her final form, Quincy became more stand offish, and this solidified her feelings that she indeed was somehow “less” than the others. But soon things change and Sophia comes into her own, when she learns to control her shifts(she is a shapeshifter) and Sophia is one of those who has to go on the journey for the scroll piece; which fast becomes a race to save members of her direct family, but possibly her people….In this journey, she finds out the truth regarding what is happeningwith Quincy, why he is so standoffish…and Sophia also learns the truth in why she is different than the others, and must learn to accept who she is, and embrace where her life is leading, and not how it begun.
