Blog Tour -- Release by M.R. Merrick (Review & Giveaway!!!)

Release (The Protector #3) by M.R. Merrick

After uniting the shifters and calling in reinforcements, Chase has to face his toughest challenge yet: learning to control his emotions. But as tensions rise and his powers grow, controlling his emotions becomes the least of his problems.

Terrorized by a multi-shifter who is hell-bent on turning him, Chase questions just how far he's willing to go to stop his father. Meanwhile, Tiki's virtuous nature has placed him in the middle of Vincent's past, leaving Chase to oppose a senate of vampires and defend a demon he hates.

Trying to balance his friends, his enemies, and his inner demons, Chase is left searching for answers about the Mark, his destiny, and where he can find the next soul piece. Stopping Riley is his top priority, but as more obstacles arise, he finds himself doubting all the decisions he's made - especially regarding Rayna.

One thing is for certain: Chase has finally realized that he doesn't know anything. The light doesn't always quell the darkness, the monsters don't always stay in the shadows, and the past doesn't always stay in the past - sometimes, the demons inside are the hardest to fight.

My Review:
This was freaking amazing! Every time I read a book in this series, I wonder, how will M.R. Merrick live up to something this amazing in the next book? And every single time I read the next book, it's just as, if not more, amazing! Once again, M.R. Merrick has created a fantastic, amazing, and captivating story.

I love the character development in this book. With Chase, Rayna, Vincent, Tiki and all the other characters. Each book in this series shows more and more of their development and it's great to see.

The world that M.R. Merrick builds just keeps getting better and better. Each time one situation is taken care of, they are thrust into another. This non-stop action draws me into the book and I can't put it down.

The romance in the book between Chase and Rayna is one of the most believable relationships I've ever seen. The pace that they take is great and I love how they don't jump right into it all. Chase and Rayna take it one step at a time, not wanting to over do it.

Overall, this series is great with all its twists, surprises, and action. For anyone who loves urban fantasy, you need to read this! This is one of the best series I've ever read!
