Shifted Existence: Looking Glass Multiverse Book 2

One moment in time was all it took…

You have two options. You surrender or you run.

Bailey
The world as we knew it unraveled three years ago. Our government enjoyed the perks that came to them when they agreed to opening the portals to the multiverse. Unfortunately, it was a trojan horse and the females on earth became the spoils of war. The shifters that came through the portals need mates. They have given us two options… You surrender or you run. Those that run are declared feral. I chose to run.

Talon
I am alpha to the Storm Rift Pack. When our universe realized we were sowing the seeds of our own destruction, we united with another realm and invaded Earth. They had the one thing we wanted: female breeding stock. I had never thought to return to Earth, but the mirror has shown me my fated mate. She is one of the ferals.

As an avid fan of Ms. Delta James and her paranormal and shifter series, I was surprised by the uniqueness of this new series. Shifted Existence is a cross between her series that crossed the Void and her shifter series—and it was fascinating. I loved the characters, the unexpected, and the passion within the story. Each book will read as a stand-alone and can be read in any order. Book two, while having the Void and fated mates, it is a new realm and characters.

Earth and its leader’s arrogance cost them a high price when they are invaded and must now capitulate to wolf shifters who hold all the power. Now, it is known as the Conquered Realm. One of the costs, all females of age able to bear children must be available. If a woman refuses to enter their organized training camp, she will be deemed ‘feral’ and placed in an area without any means of food, clothing, shelter, or protection. She will be on her own, and anyone found helping a feral will face punishment. Twice a year, a portal will open where wolf shifters can come hunt and claim a female.

Talon, Alpha of the Storm Rift Pack in the Eclipse Province, has watched many of his warriors use the Void, going to the Conquered Realm and claiming a mate. He has never felt the need to go—but that will change. A voice will call to Talon and show him his fated mate. With the Hunt of the Wolf Moon, which opens tomorrow on the Conquered Realm, this time, Talon will be joining his single warriors.

Voice: She awaits you on the other side. I am no trick, Talon of the Eclipse Province. I have seen her and your fated mate waits for you on the other side of the Void. I do not wish to fight with you, Alpha, merely to help. She is there, and she needs you.
Talon: Mine.
Voice: I thought you might think that. She is called Bailey Pierce and she is located most often in a harsh and heated place known as Pictured Rocks in the northern province by the great lakes known as Michigan.
Talon: You have done me a service. What favor do you ask in return?
Voice: Only that you find true happiness for the rest of your days and beyond with your fated mate.

Voice: He is coming.
Bailey: Who is he?
Voice: He is your fated mate.
Bailey: Not if I have anything to say about it.

The story’s plot is unique and a page-turner. I love the characters, the angst, with a touch of mystery and suspense. Read and learn what happened that set this invasion and claiming in motion. The wolves are dominant males disciplining their naughty mates, but they also pleasure them. Talon had decided he would not take a mate, but after the Voice from the Void shows him his mate, his plans change, and he is ready to claim her. Bailey knows the Hunt of the Wolf Moon is ready to happen again, and she does what she can to prepare and stay hidden. The Voice in the Void lets her know her mate is on the way. Let the games begin—of cat and mouse—hunter and hunted. No matter what, in the end, they both win.

“Enjoy your run, my mate, for I will enjoy running you to ground.”

“Let the past and the Conquered Realm go, Bailey. There is a whole wonderful future stretching out before us.” --Dani

The story has the good, the bad, and the evil. I love how, while Talon is a dominant and controlling Alpha, he still respects Bailey and her abilities—at least when they are not trying to avoid him and his capture. He trusts her abilities enough when danger is present for her friends and the other ‘ferals’ to allow her some control. In the end, it is a positive for all those in the Eclipse Province. Bailey is well received and an asset to all

'Shifted Existence" is Delta James' second book in her unique series, "Looking Glass Multiverse".

"If all he’d ever given her was flattery, he wouldn’t be where he was—lost in the darkness and separated from the light, with only occasional glimpses into the lives and souls of those outside the Void… outside of time and space. But it is here in the inky blackness that he belongs, for he helped her with more things than just flattery. Many believe the tales of Snow White are fantastical and untrue. They are wrong."
James, Delta. Shifted Existence: A Multiverse Fated Mate Romance (Looking Glass Multiverse Book 2) (p. 6). Kindle Edition

For every action, there is a reaction and that reaction brings forth some type of consequences. The mirror is facing him and that's where Talon and Bailey, our Hero and heroine, come in. As alpha of the Storm Rift Pack he is expected to take a make in order to have an heir but Talon has made up his mind to forgo having a mate and name the son of his second in command as his heir. That is until a disembodied face in the river tells him his fated mate is waiting on the other side of the void and she's in danger. The Moon Hunt is coming and there are only two sections for the lottery winners to get a mate on Earth. Either the soft, weak ones being trained on how to submit or the women who have refused to submit and are running wild with no discipline at all. The defiant, wild ones are known as ferals and Talon's fated mate is among that group. Bailey has learned through the last three years not to get attached to any of the other women running for their lives. It's hard to make a friend, get attached, and then watch them be captured and forcibly removed from Earth. When the disembodied face comes to her body of water to let her know her fated mate is coming for her Bailey decides she'd rather die than be captured by a mutant and taken to another world. This is a unique world with a completely new set of circumstances which makes this storyline fascinating. And to have the magic mirror working for good in order to pay penance makes it all the more surreal. A great read to say the least.

This was pretty good. I am not going to lie this wasn’t as good as the first one but still enjoyable. Bailey was told that wolf-shifters abused their women and use them as breeders and throw them away when they have no use for them. Talon didn’t want to take a puny human for a mate, until the mirror showed him his fated mate. I love the ending when they kicked that evils wolf butt. Good read

Shifted Reality: A Multiverse Fated Mate Romance (Looking Glass Multiverse Book 1)

This is such a wonderful story. Almost like a retelling of Alice through the Looking Glass, but not quite. The theme of dominant males continues to hold sway with this new series. Angelique and Rogan are great together. I love her response to everyone. So looking forward to reading more!

The Reluctant Retiree

One moment in time was all it took…
I shouldn’t be here. I’m not even sure how I got here—wherever here might be.

Angelique
I find myself swept into the arms of a stranger before he passes through a looking glass into another world. He tells me I am his fated mate and he is claiming me. I don’t know him…except he looks eerily familiar to the alpha in my successful wolf-shifter romance novels.

Rogan
Imagine my shock when I looked through the mirror my mother has magicked and my fated mate was on the other side. I did what any great alpha would do… I stepped through and took her. She is mine and I will not allow anything to take her from me. Not even another reality in the multiverse.

Can Angelique find happiness with the alpha of the pack or will she somehow be pulled back through the looking glass?

Wonderful read, great characters and storyline unable to put down once started reading
Lily who had been mate to the Alpha until he had been murdered had now been continued living with her son who had taken over the Summer Port pack as Alpha and like his father before him was a strong Alpha, he protected his pack and ensure that they were all well cared for.
Rogan had been looking for his Fated Mate and he had continued to search for her and was surprised when his mother Lily had told him that she knew where his Fated Mate was and that once found would never be separated from in life, in death they believed they pass into the ever-after together.
Lily had also been mated for the second time to her second fated mate and the fact that Bryson who was also his Beta and had known for many years that Rogan’s mother was his fated mate but had been prepared to wait until his Alpha was in agreement for them to be mated.
The fact that Angelique had been living her life through the void where she spent her days as an author that wrote romance books, at present she had been writing a small series of books that had been based on wolf shifters, they resided in Summer Port and the Alpha that had taken over after the death of his father was Rogan.
When Lily finally negotiates with her son that she had found his mate and if he would simply view her via the mirror if she was correct, he would have found his mate, if not the mirror would be lost forever and the void would close, no one but Bryson, Rogan and Lily would know about the magic mirror, it would no longer exist and his mother could then become Bryson’s fated mate, the mating agreement carried out before her son and omega with them instantly going into seclusion.
This is a wonderful start to this amazingly different series that already suggests a wealth of different characters and stories for us lucky readers to enjoy.
I assure you that you will love every moment of this book it is simply a fantastic read.

I thoroughly enjoyed the book and look forward to reading any future publications; keep up all the great writing.

Delta James has hit it out of the park with her new series, "Looking Glass Multiverse" and the first book, 'Shifted Reality' is beyond anything I expected. I've provided a small teaser from the Prologue of the book and it just gets better from there. I've sat here and typed, then erased several times trying to write this review but I find myself wanting to share so much of this story that I finally came to the conclusion I couldn't do it … not to another reader or to Ms. James, so this is what I'll tell you. As I was reading this story, I could literally picture Ms. James as the main character for a bit. I giggled at her attitude and could see her typing at the laptop and having those silent conversations with herself and it was like I was immediately a part of her life. Now, for the rest of the story. The Hero and heroine are absolutely the perfect foil for each other. Both with strong personalities. Rogen's mother Iris is a force to be reckoned with, for sure. As a matter of fact, she becomes a heroine in her own right. There are multiple fated mates at play here and a magical mirror who is trying to atone for misdeeds. If this is what is representing the remainder of the series I can barely contain my excitement because this book was wonderful

Iris, who dabbles in magick, has located her son's fated mate. She whispers to Angelique, giving her the wolf-shifters' stories. Angelique has no idea, until Rogan picks her up and takes her to his own reality. From there, the steam rises and threatens to melt your kindle.
Multiverses? Wolf shifters as the apex species in the world? Yes please! I've read most of Delta James' books, and each one outdoes the previous ones. Advance was my favorite book, but this one? Wowza. Plenty of spankings and alpha and beta wolf vibes abound here. When two couples find their HEA's in one book, you know the author is doing something right. The next book in the series is set up in the epilogue, and I'm waiting with bated breath for it. Seriously, one click this one right now and get lost in an amazing world.

I received an advance reader copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving my honest review
