Matefinder

Werewolves, facing the threat of extinction, desperately seek their mates to bear young. Aurora, a human far removed from the supernatural world, is nearing her own end after being fatally injured in a car accident. Kai, an Alpha werewolf, lurks in the nearby trees watching her bleed out. He chooses to save her the only way he knows how, by changing her. No one is prepared for what happens next. The tides turn in favor of the werewolves. The Matefinder has been found, and she is more powerful than anybody ever imagined. But is she prepared to be the most hunted werewolf in history?

Devi

When Aurora found out that the vampires were after her blood to procreate, she thought she knew her mission. Take out the vampires and live happily ever after with Kai and their pack. But when the witches discover something about her, everything changes. Maybe Aurora doesn’t have as much control over her fate as she thought and sometimes allies become enemies. Aurora and Kai must defy all odds if their future is to end in happiness.

Balance

Ever since Kai revealed the supernatural race to the humans, riots and chaos have reigned down on Mount Hood. Aurora is going crazy just sitting around and waiting for Layla to show up so that Aurora can finish her task and kill her, bringing peace to her pack. Kai does everything in his power to keep Aurora safe and confined on the heavily guarded mountain. But he should know that no one can really keep Aurora from the things she wants in life. She is determined to find Layla and end this war, forever. But at what cost?

Review:

The individual breakdown ratings are as followed. Book 1: Matefinder ☆☆☆☆, book 2: Devi ☆☆ and book 3: Balance ☆☆☆.

 I discovered this series on Amazon. I have recently discovered the world of Kindle unlimited and guess what they are all available if you are subscribed for the price of $9.99 a month.  What attracted me to this was the cover. I judged a book by its cover and I liked it, I really liked it. These covers a beautiful. The only downfall is that it’s clearly not the same girl on the cover but is supposed to be the main character. These women don’t even resemble each other in my eyes.

I was never one to dwell into the shapeshifter realm, but this series has so much that once you enter there is no going back.  This series in all has werewolves, vampires, shaman, witches (good and bad), battles and hope all rolled into one. You follow Aurora on her journey to discovering her new self. Thanks of course the ever delicious Kia. Talk about an alpha male characters. What’s more Alpha than the leader of werewolf pack? Well maybe Aurora thats what.

The series starting with book one escalates and takes you into the journey quickly an if you don’t keep up you’ll miss out on key facts. If you can not keep track of storylines well then this book is a no go for you. Because there is a lot going on. A lot of activities, a lot of people and a lot of changes. It’s a lot to take in. But once you get through the journey of the Matefinders trilogy Leia Stone so nicely left it open to continue on to a spin-off series of Matefinders: Next Generations.

So your probably sitting there saying, ” she saying all these great thing about the series so why is she only rating it 3 stars” . Well Book 2: Devi  was a total nose dive for me. I couldn’t connect with the characters a I did in book 1, they all seemed a bit off to me. I just felt like there was too much on one character and it threw the balance off…Instead of it seeming like it was going to show the development  of Aurora it felt that more was piled on to this girl. And she took it all well. Way to well, she didn’t question anything, she just accepted that, it was, what it was and that was it.

This is a series that I feel can only be truly read together and in order. I don’t think anyone of these would work as a standalone. And don’t think you can just skip book 2 either. It does contain a lot of important information need for the conclusion.  I thoroughly enjoyed that it was left open to make more of or a spin-off. Which I also read and that can be found on my blog as well.

Overall I like this series, I’ll read more by the author, but I don’t think this is a series I would revisit, but would suggest to my daughter who is all about werewolves.

If you enjoyed this series be sure to check out the the spin off series following the pack of Mt. Hood. Matefinder: Next Generation is a 2 book series and available now.

  1. I completely understand what you mean about book 2. I have that problem sometimes with middle books. I haven’t read much of shapeshifters but this series sounds good. I will have to check it out.

    1. Book 2 was hard for me, but that may not be the same results for everyone, But the series still wouldn’t be complete without it because of a few key facts you gather in book 2 which aren’t given away in either other book.

  3. I love finding a new series for cozy weather. My husband and I love fantasy books, provided they are clean and have a good plot line. Sometimes middle books can be hard to get through, and it’s important for the author to end the series well!

  4. Seems like an intesting book series that I might have to check out. I love vampire or werewolf books. This is interesting that the main characters are those creatures but female.

    1. Yes, you see a lot of book just have males who seem to dominate but Stone was able to give the power to a very strong female lead.
