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.
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.

Nikki, in her female form, is one tough cookie who needs no man to protect her. She can be flippant at times and jumps the gun before thinking but she's serious when the case gets deadlier and hits home. Her other half Nick is calm and full of zen and he's useful to have when Nikki needs a calming influence. She wasn't interested in relationships until she met Sean. He's the exact opposite of her but something clicks between them immediately and their first encounter binds them in an unexpected way that Nikki fights every step of the way. Not until heartache strikes her and her mortality closes in does she admit the truth about her feelings and I wanted to shake her silly for waiting so long.
Sean is a serious man who's been surrounded by death with the loss of his partner, friend, and relative. These losses weigh heavily on him, as does the truth of his lineage which when discovered by Nikki puts their relationship in jeopardy because of her prejudices. We don't really see his other half Shauna but a clever plan to trap the villain shows just how talented Sean is in shifting into other people. Sean is extremely loyal and devoted and won't let Nikki push him away no matter how hard she tries. When he literally puts his life on the line for her you know we have the quintessential hero and I was completely in love with him.
The villain in this story is truly vile by thinking that their act of genocide is justice. We see early on who the villain is and their reason behind their deeds, but it's a connection to a secondary character that's most surprising and takes the story to an even more emotionally intense level. Also intense is the sexual interludes between Nikki and Sean. There's sexual tension from the start and once they hit the sheets they connect on an unexpected mystical level that very few of their kind experience.
This was a very satisfying read that kept me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end. With two headstrong lead characters you know that their HEA won't come easily, which makes the story's culmination even more satisfying. With a credible villain and unexpected deaths, the reader is on an emotional roller coaster that speeds along to its heartwarming conclusion. Fans of the paranormal will find this book a wonderful addition to the genre and here's hoping this isn't our last visit to this intriguing world Jill James has created.
