“This is a very good story. It’s a little long”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Lainey
What a Yarn! This is a very good story. It’s a little long, but worth the time. I couldn’t put it down. I had never heard of shape shifting before I picked up this book; but by the time I finished the book, the author had me believing in the possibility that it could have existed. Regardless, it is a beautiful love story and I’m looking forward to the sequel. .
