Corpse Thieves (Shifter Squad #5) by J.C. Diem


This book was ah-mazing! Let’s face it, I’m addicted to J.C. Diem’s Shifter Squad series. I’ll hopefully have books six and seven in the next day or two to be able to read and review them as well! And then it’ll be time for her Mortis Vampire series. Haha. I’m liking this series the more I read it and I honestly hope it never ends. 😀 While I’m liking Lexi, Flynn and Kala more each book I’m really starting to not like Reece and I’m not sure on Mark after reading this book. I will say that I’m not sure I’m liking the way that Lexi and Reece’s personalities are changing in this book. They went from strong and likable characters to Lexi being needy and Reece being an ass. Not sure I’m liking the changes but we’ll see where they go.


The TAK Squad manages to capture the rogue shifter, which turns out to be Reece’s younger brother, Gareth. Turns out that Reece’s real name is Garrett. Mark didn’t want to completely strip him of his old life and left his real name as his last name. This makes Reece resent Mark for taking him from his family as new information comes to light. After dealing with and meeting his mother and pack, the TAK Squad leaves there to get a break and let Reece think about his looming decisions.

This book sees the TAK Squad heading for New Orleans at first to find Lexi’s mom to destroy her and stop the taint in her and Reece’s blood that’s slowly killing them. On the way there, they are re-routed to Oklahoma. Corpses are going missing from morgues and then children start going missing.  Finding Lexi’s mom is put on a back burner as the kidnappings are more pressing. Turns out that they are dealing with ghouls and are in a town that has werelions and other werecats inhibiting it.

When Lexi and Kala are checking out one of the cemeteries, some werelions show up and the Rex, aka alpha, orders Kala to go with him and she obliges, not really knowing what she’s doing. Lexi is swallowed up into the earth by ghouls pulling her down. She barely makes it out of there alive but not without realizing that she’s more abnormal than she was before. Reece and her renew their bond when he gets to the cemetery. Their bond magic heals Lexi as she was only minutes away from dying from blood loss.
