Shifting Review

Summary: After bouncing from foster home to foster home, Magdalene Mae is transferred to what should be her last foster home in the tiny town of Silver City, New Mexico. Now that she's eighteen and has only a year left in high school, she's determined to stay out of trouble and just be normal. Agreeing to go to the prom with Bridger O'Connell is a good first step. Fitting in has never been her strong suit, but it's not for the reasons most people would expect-it all has to do with the deep secret that she is a shape shifter. But even in her new home danger lurks, waiting in the shadows to pounce. They are the Skinwalkers of Navajo legend, who have traded their souls to become the animal whose skin they wear-and Maggie is their next target.

Full of romance, mysticism, and intrigue, this dark take on Navajo legend will haunt readers to the final page.

Review: I thought this was an excellent book! It was full of excitement and love and animals (haha :p) Basically everything a great book should have!

I love Maggie Mae - I found her to be an awesome female character. She was very strong, yet wasn't afraid to show a softer side... especially when it came to Bridger :D Bridger, in my opinion, was also a great character - definitely relatable... hot :p All those good things.

There was lots of blood and action in this book, especially closer to the end - it kept things exciting! There were tons of twists and secrets that got unveiled that made me jump up and scream in disbelief! When a book can do that, ya know its a good one :p

This definitely isn't your typical shape shifter book - its better! Very unique. I suggest you read it :p
