4 Stars: I Really Liked It

Like any sixteen-year-old, Julia’s used to dealing with problems. From her overprotective father to her absent mother to a teacher who definitely has it in for her. But everything changes when Julia’s reactions become oddly vicious and angry—more animal than human. This action-packed adventure has it all: humor, romance, and a plot that’ll keep you guessing to the very last page.

My Thoughts:

When things went wrong at school Julia was sent to a castle boarding school to learn more about her discovered talent, her mom, and what her dad really does. The Shapeshifter’s Secret is a great title because there were a lot of secrets to discover in this read.

It took reading the first 3rd of the book before I got into it. I guess I didn’t connect with Julia for some reason. When I finished the book and looked back I still didn’t know why I didn’t feel connected. I liked Julia’s character but maybe it was all the secrets I thought were going on. Even at the end there’s still a certain character I don’t trust, but that actually makes me want to read the next book even more. I have to find out more about this character (I won’t even mention the name because I don’t want to give anything away!). It seems my suspicions about him were wrong, but I don’t believe it. I need to read book 2!

Julia has 2 friends, Gabe and Sierra, who really add to the story. They were great. I really enjoyed this book! If you love fantasy, especially fantasy that is discovered in the real world, then you’ll love this book. I can’t wait to read more!
