"For Karadel, being a shape-shifter has always been a reality she couldn't escape. Even though she's built a safe life as a rural veterinarian, with a close-knit network of shifter and human friends who would do anything for her - and for each other - she can't help but wish for a chance at being normal. When she's not dealing with her shifts or caring for her animal patients, she attempts to develop a drug that will help shifters control their changes, a drug that might even allow them to remain human forever. But her comfortable life is threatened by two events: she meets an ordinary man who touches her heart, and her best friend is forced to shift publicly with deadly consequences. Now Karadel must decide whom to trust: her old friends or her new love. "--Provided by publisher.

What would you do if you unexpectedly started changing into a cat on your way home from the grocery store? That's what happens to the main character at the beginning of this book, and it only gets more exciting from there on out. This book is an intelligent blend of sci fi, fantasy, and chick lit, which will appeal to a wide range of readers. The story is just as beautiful as the book's cover art. This is the second Sharon Shinn book I've read, and I have a feeling that it won't be the last.

Shinn writes beautifully. Her novels, like this one, usually deal with human emotional bonds and poignant relationships.
There are no fireworks storyline here (except the climax), but the shape-shifting culture is fascinating.

Meh. I love Sharon Shinn but this series just isn't doing it for me, and this one least of all. Her writing is good, and her emotions are well expressed, but the story just isn't capturing my interest. Perhaps it's the absence of the fabulous world-building that so distinguishes her pure fantasy novels.
