RELEASE Blog Tour by M.R. Merrick

In M.R Merrick’s Release we delve into a much darker place, where life for Chase is constantly filled with danger, questions and mystery. The pace was a little slower than Shift, despite the array of action of amazing places that Merrick took Chase on. Through all of Chase’s journeys, it was impossible not to continue rooting for him and his band of merry warriors. The team he has around him are such an eclectic bunch, that they constantly entertained and amused me.

I missed Rayna a little in Shift; I had become very fond of her kick-ass, no nonsense character in Shift that I felt a little bereft. However, I loved getting to know Vincent much better in Release. I couldn’t help but enjoy following his character. Merrick’s ability to create such a huge mix of characters, all with unique voices, pasts and personalities is impressive. He is a master of creating dialogue that was engaging and believable, especially impressive in a fantasy novel.

I am thoroughly enjoying this series, but I so desperately want answers to the questions that niggle at me when reading. I had a little frustrated groan when I finished Release – I wanted more! I eagerly look forward to the next installment.

Goodreads Synopsis
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.

  1. Enjoyed your review. Thanks for being part of the tour.


  2. My favorite creature would either be a fairy or a dragon. I like fairies because they are so pretty. But I like dragons too because they are big and powerful and like treasure. I have always wished I had a little baby dragon like on Game of Thrones.

  3. My favorite mythological character is a shape shifter. That way you can be anyone you need to be for any situation.

  4. My favorite mythological creature is a phoenix. I love the idea of coming out of ash and destruction to become a stronger, more beautiful creature
