This was my first time reading anything by Cari Schaeffer and I must say, I am not a huge fan of shifter books, or many sci-fi, but I thought, that this one seemed to break the mold a bit just with the synopsis and that I would give it a go. I am honestly glad that I did. It did have a few thing that threw me off a bit. Nothing that would make be throw it out completely or not finish it though, and I was overall impressed.
This did in fact break the mold from the typical shifter books that I have read in the past. Most have been the animal type shifter books, as well as adult type love stories that tend to be the erotic romances that I read. This was along the lines of a coming of age book. Katherine Wolff, our MC, was relatable, and really coming into her own age and womanhood. She is dealing with her body changing and growing up as well as getting ready for her first transformation. I really liked how that opened doors for different emotions to be explored, including humor. This made Katherine and her family and friends relatable and fun to read. Especially, her granny. Oh, and watch out for that cliffhanger. I must confess, I will be back for more in book two, because I have so many questions, and I need answers!
