    So, if you follow my reviews, you know that if I start a book or series I have to finish it no matter what. After I fi ished reading the Somber Call, I was on the fence about jumping right into the final book of the Ariane trilogy. Obviously, since I'm writing this review, you know my decision. I am happy to say that The Crucial Shift was much better than its predecessor. I'm still going to give this book 3.5 stars but the writing did improve. Ari's character had more depth.

The storyline was more consistent and flowed smoother. I look forward to following Michelle Dare and exploring what she publishes next.

    I love this series! There is so much excitement, drama and swoon!! You just can't help but get swept up in to the world of Ariane. This world Michelle Dare has built is just phenomenal. There is always something going on at each turn of the page, you have to keep going to see what's to come. Rion will definitely have you swooning from book one, but I feel like him and Ari have grown so much since their initial meeting that your heart just feels so much for him.

I really loved the characters, Ford is still my fave and my heart just breaks for him even more in this book. I really wouldn't mind reading his story or any of the other characters stories within this trilogy. Definitely my new fave YA Series!

    Oh my heart. This journey I have been on with this trilogy has been a roller coaster that makes your heart race, your breath catch and so much more. The uniqueness and the concept are something that blew me away. This final installment added so much more and honestly made my jaw drop! While the connection between Ari and Rion streghthens, there are so many things that come to light. Things they never knew would be or could be possible. My jaw literally dropped with one thing that happens. NOPE! Oh my heart. This journey I have been on with this trilogy has been a roller coaster that makes your heart race, your breath catch and so much more. The uniqueness and the concept are something that blew me away. This final installment added so much more and honestly made my jaw drop! While the connection between Ari and Rion streghthens, there are so many things that come to light. Things they never knew would be or could be possible. My jaw literally dropped with one thing that happens. NOPE! No spoilers from me but OMG it will make you go WTF just happened! As this story flows and the war rages, things get crazy with little details that end up exploding and becoming something huge! How will they defeat Travis? How will peace come to the packs? Ari is pulled in so many ways because she is so emotionally involved with everyone who has come to help as well as who they are up against. How things finally play out to get things done was utterly brilliant as well and beating those nasty paranormal at their own game. The one thing I have to say about this series is the strong supporting characters that Dare has created within this series. While the focus is on Ari and Rion, you cannot help but fall in love with the whole pack. But there is also Ford, his brother whom you will meet, Kylest as well as Wake who you find out why and what happened to him!. They have great chemistry and banter with Ari as she can lean on them aside from Rion. The connection she has with them is deep and her love for them can be conflicting at times but also she is someone that they can count on. I need Ford to come alive. I need him to find his happily ever after. Same with Wake. and Kylest intrigues me so much! This final book has such a punch that makes your head spin but makes you swoon and fall in love with what Ari and Rion have as well. There are a lot of things that come to light. There are a lot of things that happen. But in the long run, it is about finding the one you are meant to be with and protecting the ones that you love. This whole trilogy is beyond intense between the epic characters, the in depth details about everything and how vivid the story is as a whole. It comes full circle in this final book. Trust me it will leave you begging for more. I will quit rambling now, but please know this, Ford is mine. ALL MINE! I have staked my claim. No one can have him!

    Ari's life was completely changed when she met Orion, and found out a lot of secrets - about her family, about herself, and about the world around her. There is evil out there trying to destroy her - she has found her mate, and now needs to do all that she can to save those she loves.

    No spoilers here but this series is a must read. I wasn't sure how things would play out and there is a surprising twist that shifts things and changes my feelings on certain relationships. I cannot wait to see what is in store for the side characters I have grown so attached to. No spoilers here but this series is a must read.

    Amazing, truly amazing. This has EVERYTHING. Action, adventure, humour, love, hate, revenge...oh it’s just so so good. I really wanted to call in sick at work so I could read this 3rd and final book! But I also never wanted it to end. I can’t tell you how much these three books consumed my life. Highly addictive and highly recommended. Michelle, these are your best work so far. I’m looking forward to seeing where this shifter/vampire/fae from these books go on to.

    What a journey this Ariane Trilogy has been. Michelle Dare created a paranormal world that I fully immersed myself in after being away from this genre for so long. We have followed Ari, Orion, and Ford as they navigate this world trying to prepare themselves for the pack war that is coming. Wake has joined their group, although some in the pack are still reluctant to welcome him. Ford’s brother has turned up and also brings some humor to this crazy bunch.

Michelle Dare created a paranormal world that I fully immersed myself in after being away from this genre for so long. We have followed Ari, Orion, and Ford as they navigate this world trying to prepare themselves for the pack war that is coming. Wake has joined their group, although some in the pack are still reluctant to welcome him. Ford’s brother has turned up and also brings some humor to this crazy bunch. The story has so much action, humor, love, intensity, hate, revenge, friendship, and so on and so on… it is the type of story that grabs you and doesn’t let go. You don’t want it to, not until you are completely done with it, and even then, you want more. So many secrets are revealed in this last installment, and you will be left open-mouthed at a few. Although the story has centered mainly on Ari and Orion, the supporting characters have been a prominent part of the plot and now get some revelations regarding their story. The chemistry between Ari and Orion is off the charts, and although there were times when he tried to be a bit too controlling, you can’t help admiring his devotion to her. Ford is also another one that is always there for her. Throughout this whole journey he has been a constant in her life and someone she knows she can depend on. His feelings made things awkward at times, but I like the way their relationship went. Wake, now there is a character that needs more story. I loved the way he cared for Ari and the way she defended him against everyone. He’s had it rough and I was glad to see that he was coming back home. I can go on and on with a little something about all the characters, but I’ll end it here. All I have to say is that the way the secrets were revealed, the way the pack came together to prepare for the fight against Travis and his group of nasty creatures, the way that Ari fought to make sure her loved ones suffered the least possible, all that was done in such a way that I was on the edge of my seat holding my breath. Michelle Dare managed to build on the excitement and now I am waiting to see her write about Wake and Ford. They need their own book!!!!!!!

    I'm not a reviewer that leaves spoilers in my reviews just for the simple fact that I as a reader tend to read them before I read a book or series I'm dying for. When I read the review it tends to spoil the book for me and when I do finally read it, I'm so disappointed in the story because it doesn't live up to what I have in my head.

Everything has a purpose and no matter how mad you get, you will see it. I am now rocking in a corner. Sad and looking for Ford. I need someone to keep me company while the author writes the next story about Avynwood. And FYI, I'm totally Ari. Lol. This is totally autobiographical. Just in case you were wondering, I'm speaking to Michelle about signings...😂 Reviewed for Sweet Spot Sisterhood

    This is the last book in the Trilogy but it answered a lot of questions you have. I loved this trilogy and all of the characters but I think the heroine Ariane is my favorite as she goes from naive high schooler to being immersed in a paranormal world. The book does hint that maybe some of the other characters will have a story and I will be first in line to buy it. The author did an awesome job on this series and even if you don’t like YA give this series a try you won’t be sorry.

    I have never loved and hated a book so much. I loved the story. I hated Ari. Ugh as this series went on I liked her less and less. She wasn’t whiney or weak. It was exactly opposite. She got a couple powers and then she was in everyone’s face with them. Threatening and telling them they didn’t know who they were messing with. She did all this without once ever training or actually being in a fight. Also, she felt the need to tell everyone she met exactly what powers she had. She would list them I have never loved and hated a book so much. I loved the story. I hated Ari. Ugh as this series went on I liked her less and less. She wasn’t whiney or weak.

She would list them all to prove how tough she was, over and over. And if you are getting ready to go to war STOP telling everyone the ONE way to kill you!! For the love! But despite her annoying me throughout the entire book. I liked the other characters, and I loved the story telling. Not the narrator so much, but the actual story was good. Oh and it did get a bit annoying how everyone seemed to be connected to Ari, every new character had a connection to her, or fell in love with her. So annoying. But if you can past all that. The story was great. I didn’t feel the pull to Ari and Orion though. They were mates and it was accepted that they were to be together forever, but I think the author fell back on that a little too much because I think she spent more time cultivating Ari and Fords relationship in the previous book, and I craved him. I knew they would never be together but I loved when they had honest talks and when he would touch her. I never really felt that with Orion unfortunately. I didn’t dislike him or wish she was with Ford, but I never felt the yearning for them to be together.

    The Crucial Shift is book 3 in Michelle Dare’s Ariane series. I am so over the the moon with Ariane and Orion’s story. I just love all of the Avynwood Pack characters...

I have really enjoyed reading this series with all of the ups and downs we have had to journey through, I have never wanted a series to not get a HEA before like I do now. Cause with Ari and Rion getting their HEA that means there is no more to their story... Don’t get me wrong I am so happy they are finally able to get their HEA with everything they have had to endure from Travis and Benedict, but I don’t want their story to be finished. Rion and Ari are such a strong, formidable duo, with the mating bond in place and Rion receiving Ari’s gifts they both have the strength of a vampire, the healing ability like a vampire and the ability to teleport and read peoples thoughts. Wow!!! Just when you thought they couldn’t get any better Ari is a wolf... (shock I know) Thank you Michelle for writing such a fantastic book with wonderful and entertaining characters. I can’t wait to see what you have in store or Wake, Ford and Kylest.

    My first and foremost question is: why is there not a bigger hype about this author?? I have been extremely satisfied with this triology. I bought this on a whim after seeing it suggested on Facebook which almost never turns out good. However, the 3.99 paid for the last 2 books was totally worth it. I think this author is very underrated for her writing style. I'm currently reading Fallen by Lauren Kate, and I actually stopped reading that book to finish this book.

I think this author is very underrated for her writing style. I'm currently reading Fallen by Lauren Kate, and I actually stopped reading that book to finish this book. I was more emersed in this book than the popularized L.K. book. However, my 4-star rating was based on a few unanswered questions. Why does Ford and Arianne share a connection? Since she was mated to a wolf, this felt very similar to the Bella and Jacob link in Twilight. This makes me think Ford will have a connection to someone in Arianne's family or her daughter. I hope the author doesn't go this route because its already been done. I suppose this question will be answered in Ford's story, and I'll probably read his just for that. Also, Lealla's 'foreshadowing' the mating of the wolves was never explained afterwards, and after the 2nd book she was hardly mentioned. I realize it was A's book, but she played a pivotal role in them coming together. Also, why didn't Lealla see Wake's future mate? These were only minor plot holes that I thought could be filled, but it does make me want to continue the series.

This trilogy is so amazing. The wolves and their mates, the vampires, the fae and their ally’s are so amazing that I want to be a part of their world. I don’t want to give away the conclusion to this trilogy so here’s a few bits. We leave off with Ari and Rion going to The Quivakokd Pack not sure what to expect. The alpha is Merrick and he happens to be Travis’s brother and they weren’t sure if him and his pack would help them. Shocking to both Ari and Rion that Merrick’s mate just happens to be Ari’s Aunt Zayda. She’s Ari’s fathers sister and she happens to be a wolf shifter. Merrick and his pack will help The Avynwood Pack against their fight against Travis. Ari and Rion finally complete their mating ritual. These two become fierce together. Once they become mated their bond strengthens. They share their powers. Thanks to the gifts Ford has given Ari. They can still read each other’s minds but they both can teleport, have the strength and healing of a vampire. Ari’s best friend is and always will be Ford. Even though Rion hates their relationship he’d never do anything to Ford bc he’d never cause Ari pain. Ford’s in love with Ari or so he believes. Ford will continue reading Ari’s mind and her dreams. He’d do anything to keep her safe. Ari’s becomes very close and protective over Rion’s cousin Wake. Travis used him more times then anybody else. Wake went thru hell bc Travis is evil and lives on power and nothing more. The war that’s coming to The Avynwood Pack is crazier, evil and dirtier than they all originally thought. The Avynwood Pack has ally’s with other shifter pacts as well as other paranormals. If you’ve fallen for Ford and Wake. Be prepared!! There’s 2 new ones you’ll fall for. Solomon, whose Ford’s brother and Kylest, who is a fae. Needless to say these four men are getting their stories told and I’m stoked!!!

    Sad to see this trilogy end. I was so invested in these books and characters so Its unfortunate to see the end of Ariane and Rion and their happily ever after. We are promised spin off books for several of the characters that we love. This book was all about action. We have been preparing for this huge War and we finally get it. This book was jammed pack with tons of fighting between so many different paranormals. Ariane discovers her new powers that to be honest surprised me. And most importantl Sad to see this trilogy end.

We are promised spin off books for several of the characters that we love. This book was all about action. We have been preparing for this huge War and we finally get it. This book was jammed pack with tons of fighting between so many different paranormals. Ariane discovers her new powers that to be honest surprised me. And most importantly Orion and Ariane are mated in this read, which is a huge deal. Orion is amazing he is so dedicated and concerned for Ariane, she is one lucky woman. I did feel like she still didn't put him and his feeling first. The only part I was not a fan of was how cocky and presumptuous she was. She is a lot newer to this whole world and she was kinda made out to be a huge deal. She was definitely not a little mouse in this last book. I thought the mating was lackluster and I get that this is a YA but it was such a big build up that I was let down. I am still very interested and looking forward to Wake, and Ford getting their own books.

    The final piece. I'm glad I had the chance of listening to this whole series in a row and didn't have to wait for Michelle to write the next book for me to dig into the story. Especially since she has such a nasty habit of cutting the events as with a knife and finishing a book right in the middle of the most exciting action. So imagine if you'd have to wait for a year to continue to know if the dagger thrown will kill or miss. In this third book lots of stuff from the past will be revealed to Ar The final piece.

In this third book lots of stuff from the past will be revealed to Ari and she keeps pushing on with this new gained knowledge. Not all events have a happy ending though, but lots of threads that have been dragging from the beginning are nicely summed up and get some kind of a solution. I'm glad Ford gets his issues solved and all in all everything ends with a nice note. All in all it wasn't such a bad YA series at all. Depends on your taste, but if you like lots of emotions and want to see love stories evolve, this might be for you. If you look for some deeper meaning, then perhaps try something else instead...
