Shifter’s Journey is the intriguing third book in the Spirit Walker Thriller series by Laura Hawks. This is a paranormal romance with mystery, suspense, drama, action, adventure, and more. Not having read any of Ms. Hawks’ books before, I wasn’t sure what lay in store for me when I opened the cover. But after a couple of chapters, I was quite intrigued by what I was reading. The story is quite complex, with several threads playing out, which the author cleverly choreographed into a great story. She has a very detailed and descriptive style, which she used to paint vivid images for us to ‘see’ the story unfolds. The book can be read as a standalone.
Sierra Hall is a reporter who normally prefers the quiet life. But, she inexplicably finds herself drawn to Colorado Springs- pulled by her gut instincts to a place she’s never been before, but somehow seems familiar. Strange feelings, unusual dreams, and an unsettling encounter with a mysterious man are just the beginning of her life changing adventure. She really feels that unknown forces are trying to ‘tell’ her something- that she really must follow as it has everything to do with her future/destiny. What do her dreams/premonitions mean? Where will her adventure take her? What happens along the way? This book is well worth the read to find out.
“She wasn’t exactly sure why, but she knew it had something to do with her destiny, her future lying in wait. When they became even more persistent, she took a last-minute vacation from her work and packed a small, rolling suitcase as she booked her flight. She rarely did anything so impulsive, but the need to get to Colorado grew increasingly imperative with each passing day. Her senses screamed at her to travel by train through the mountains and she needed to get there as soon as possible to fulfill the strong intuitions. She had no idea what it might entail, as her feelings had never been quite so distinct before, but she knew she needed to be here, for something big was about to happen. Something important that would affect her life in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and if she missed it, she would forever be lost. A part of her would cease to exist in some significant way.”
This story took me by surprise, and I am so glad that I took a chance and brought it. I will definitely be reading more of Ms. Hawks’ work in the future.
Thank you, Ms. Hawks!
