Realease Blog Tour

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.

So I completely was hyped up on Shift that I couldn’t wait to read Release. Usually when I do that I get majorly disappointed…. So not the case here, I was absolutely blown away again. That’s right AGAIN! I also have to say I cried in this book, specifically at the end. If you haven’t read Shift, then stop right here!!  

So I love WILLY, he keeps getting better and better. He’s developed a tough skin and stands up for what he thinks is right. Since he’s become a wolf, he hasn’t been able to see Chase and Rayna that much but that doesn’t change the fact that they are family and that’s one of the things I love about M.R. Merrick's books. Family is important, blood doesn’t mean everything, it’s the bonds that are formed. Chase, Rayna, Willy, Tiki, and Marcus are a dysfunctional family, but one none the less. They look out for each other which is good considering what they are up to face.

Riley and the Dark Brothers are unrelenting.  Chase’s powers are developing faster than they thought possible, sounds good right? Well not everything is always as good as it seems. Sometimes with great power comes a great consequence.  Will Chase’s power be the one thing that costs him his family? Why is his powers starting to go haywire?  I hoped Chase and Rayne would be able to take their “relationship” further, but with all that was going on that didn’t happen. The attraction is still there and a few kisses may have been executed perfectly J .

TIki is awesome. He’s the one who stands up  for Vincent when everyone else didn’t want to. Vincent, sigh, where to begin with him. If there was other circumstance, I might like Vincent, but as we sit now,  not so much. Lol. I got a better understanding for him in this book, and the way he cares about his family. However, Vincent comes into trouble with his biological family and seeks Chase’s help. This is why Tiki stands up for him and in turn gets Chase to do the same. 

The end will leave you shocked and saying, “Oh.My.God what the hell just happened?!” Then you’re going to cry, well I started to cry a little before then.  I swear I did and I tweeted M.R. Merrick's as soon as I finished saying he made me cry. I love this series and can’t wait for the next book and whatever book M.R. Merrick's rights next. He has definitely made me a fan of his. It’s so easy to get swept up in the worlds he creates. Their scary beautiful and the creatures are terrifying but amazing at the same time. You can't put the book down once you've started, it's almost physically impossible. Wonderful Job M.R. Merrick's! I cannot be happier reading one of your books, seriously, you've made me change my whole opinion on male writiers. I have to say you've set the standard extremely high!


M.R. Merrick's is becoming one if my favorite people! Release was a page turner from start to finish.....and at the finish were shocked tears!!!
Chase and the Gang are still trying to end Riley, figure out Chases powers, ya there's more, and keep everyone safe! 

M.R. Merrick's takes you on this wild ride with things happening everywhere. Chase seems to be running ragged and he and Rayna can't seem to catch a long enough make out break! (Hehe I want that part)

Vincent is having issue with his mom and wants Chase's help. Actually he demands it and throws a fit when he's expected to help back :) Let me just say, I sorta, kinda, really like Vincent, even though he can be a jerk.  He's my favorite Character in this book. 

With Chase being sent in another mission and Rayna tapping in to get witch powers people are scattered in different realms. However on the last quest the groups split up. What happens? And who makes it out alive and who doesn't?
This was the best book yet in the protector series by
M.R. Merrick's! Can't wait for book 4!!

  1. LOVE your reviews! Thanks for being part of the tour.


  2. My fav mythological creature is vamps. Just love them!

  3. Great review! I love this series. I usually read about vampires but all mythological creatures are interesting and it's nice to have variety. (The only type I can't seem to get interested in is zombies and I know they are really popular. Maybe I just haven't found the right book?;) Thanks for the giveaway.:)

    1. Thanks Heather! I'm not a fan of Zombies either, but warm bodies looks good. -Dani

  4. Definitely Werewolves! They're cool and all because of their strength and agility, but it's their sense of distraught and will to become something "better" that really makes me excited to read or write about them.

  5. Fave myth creature? um. faeries. cause they're cool?

  6. I love dragons. They are amazing and strong. They are beautiful colors and very fierce.
