Sharon Shinn has restored my faith that fantasy can do more than regurgitate the same old story over and over.
"The Shape-Changer's Wife" is simple, personal and to the point. The protagonist, Aubrey is really struggling with himself, not the antagonist. Aubrey's real victory and true character is revealed after the antagonist is gone.
Sharon Shinn's prose at times is wonderful and seductive.
There are times when Aubrey is a little on the slow side, but it's not too anoying. And there were times when he seemed to forget thahe was in a world where magic existed and he himself could do miraculous things. But these things are easy to over look in a story as great as this one.
