Shane fell in love, something a leopard is never supposed to do. Now his mate has been taken and the rest of the coalition is beginning to wonder how far Shane will go to get his panther back.

Shane’s Fury is the tenth book in The Lost Shifters series and according to the author’s website, it’s the continuing tale of Shane and Trevor. This is a hard book for me to review. While the story was good, it picks up shortly after Trevor was taken, I also came away from it feeling a little let down. Fans of this series know that Shane is an intense character who comes across as someone with little or no feelings. His precision in killing is well known to all around him. The abduction of his mate sends him close to the edge and readers are shown classic Shane behavior. Trevor’s experiences are also revealed to the reader and I could not wait for Shane to rescue his panther and destroy Orion for what he was doing to the couple.

As I stated above, I was also a little disappointed in the book, not because it was bad, but because I was expecting this to be a continuation of Trevor’s and Shane’s story. However, there was so much going on with Riley and Colin, secondary characters in the series, that it almost felt as if Trevor and Shane had suddenly become the secondary couple in their own story. While I love seeing former characters come back, and new ones introduced, I felt this time it kept Shane’s Fury from living up to its potential.
