5.0 out of 5 stars very original and imaginative take on shifter lore 19 Jan. 2015
By WHATCHA READIN'? - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
An imaginative and thought provoking story from beginning to end. A tale rife with prejudice, hatred, intrigue, deception and danger that will take the reader on a wild ride filled with action and fraught with emotion. The female lead is a dedicated cop, who is devoted to her family and lives her life by a code of honor and hard work. In Nikki we are reminded that even the best among us can harbor feelings of superiority and commit acts of various acts bigotry without any evil intent simply because old ideas and values can be hard to leave behind. At times I found myself peeved and frustrated with the Nikki character but that only made this character more "human" for me. But the process of watching this character grow, mature and come to accept love and a future that differs from her long held expectations was exhilarating. The Sean character was a sexy, smart and compete cop with secrets of his own.

This story takes a very original and imaginative take on shifter lore. Shifters have evolved to the point they only shift to male or female form rather than into other animals, but now someone is out to end the species completely. Two diverse, yet dedicated cops work together to find the killers and bring them to justice. They suffer unbearable losses along the way, find comfort and courage with each other. Eventually this dynamic couple finds love and their happily ever after. I would heartily recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a different take on popular shifter lore. This treatment smacks less of paranormal and more of contemporary thriller with a sci-fi twist. Its an exciting story and well worth the purchase price and the time to read it.

Even after reading I am not sure I care for this shifting. Makes for difficult reading. Female one minute male the next.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting and unique concept of shifters 24 Sept. 2012
By Mindy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Very interesting and unique concept of shifters. I don't think I've ever read a book quite like this one. The author based the idea on Jurassic Park and the idea that while the scientists made all the dinosaurs female so that they could not reproduce, but nature adapted to fix that issue. These shifters have dominate and non-dominate personality and these personalities are of opposite genders. So if your dominate personality was female and so was your sisters, you would also be a brother and have a brother who were the opposite of your female counterpart. Okay, my explanation was totally confusing, even to me, but in the book it is clear and presented in a well thought out manner.

There is also the love story and the paranormal concept of one true love or mate, but that you could be happy with someone else. Just very intriguing ideas that I haven't seen in other shifter stories. Very well written and interesting story idea.

I give this story 4 out of 5 clouds.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great story 8 Oct. 2012
By Donna Simmonds - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I thought this was a really great story. The author has created a world just like ours but that contains a breed of Shapeshifter. These are not you typical shifters. They do not turn into wolves, cats or other animals. Instead they commonly shift from a male to a female or otherwise alter their human looking appearance.

There is a crisis going on in their world though. Somehow shifters are being attacked by a virus. There is no rhyme or reason behind who get sick. But it does prove fatal to whoever is infected.

When Nikki comes to San Laura there is instant chemistry between her and Sean. However they are both strong willed characters. They each have their own strict beliefs that do not always agree. Many of their opinions are based on their past histories and environments. So it is interesting to watch how they have to learn to get along and respect each others beliefs. They have to learn to work together and be a team in order to help solve this growing crises.

The only real problem I had with the story was that I thought their relationship progressed at a good speed and level, until the point that they make the first move towards more. I just didn't quite get the place in the story and it wasn't clear why it was happening then and there. After that one part though it went back to a progression that made sense. The other thing that really got to me and I wont give details as to not spoil the story for anyone. I was just shocked towards the end with what happened that lead to their main breakthrough. I understand how it worked for the story and how it help the conclusion come about. But it was upsetting and I really was not happy emotionally.

This really was a great story. I am glad I got to try this author and am looking forward to reading more of her work. I also would like to have the chance to revisit this world in the future.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and Original World 4 Dec. 2012
By Shelley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Ms. James has created an interesting and original world where shifters are known to humans. Each shifter individual has the ability to shift into either male or female, although each shifter has a dominant sex or a preference. While humans and shifters rub along together, both sides of the fence are guilty of prejudices. I thought the world building and shifter aspect of the book was very well done and different from other shifter books I've read. It made for a fascinating read.

Lt. Sean Evans has lost his partner to the deadly toxin that is killing shifters and sending them to a terrible and painful death. When Nikki Hall arrives as his new partner, he's not very welcoming and they have a mutual dislike of each other. This gradually changes as the story advances and their relationship evolves to more. The aspect of true mates or Mari Kai comes into play, yet Nikki fights fate and her own prejudices before a happy ending.

I enjoyed the original world, and thought the plot worked well. My only quibble was the main characters since I didn't warm to the hero and heroine straight away. I felt they were a bit standoffish, especially the hero. While I understood his surly mood at the start, because of the loss of his friend and their lack of progress in finding the culprit, I never really connected with him.

For those who enjoy a shifter paranormal story, I think you'll enjoy the thought this author has put into making her world original and different.
