Book Review: Shift

When your average, 16-year old loser, Scott Tyler, meets the beautiful and mysterious Aubrey Jones, he learns he's not so average after all. He's a 'Shifter'. And that means he has the power to undo any decision he's ever made. At first, he thinks the power to shift is pretty cool. But as his world starts to unravel around him he realises that each time he uses his power, it has consequences; terrible unforeseen consequences. Shifting is going to get him killed. In a world where everything can change with a thought, Scott has to decide where he stands.

Scott learns that he’s a Shifter (no, not the werewolf kind), meaning he has the ability to alter reality. He can change the outcome of a situation just by imagining an alternate ending. The story starts out with Scott and his friends. Scott’s dared to climb a tower. He reaches the top, then slips and falls off. But the landing never comes. When he opens his eyes, none of his friends act like he even climbed the tower. And that’s when things start to get weird.

Scott meets Aubrey, who works for a secret organization regulating Shifters. She gives Scott the grand tour of this underground world, which Scott ultimately joins. When Scott and Aubrey team up to find a culprit in a series of murders, they’re in over their heads—and there’s no way to shift out of that reality, especially when someone has figured out how to stop them from shifting altogether. Will Scott and Aubrey make it out alive?

Overall, this was an action-packed book with just a hint of romance. If you’re looking for a fast-paced story that strays from your typical YA paranormal novels, then I recommend picking this up.
