Back Blurb:

The Shifter is an immortal creature bound by an ancient spell to protect the kings of Samorna. When the realm is peaceful, she retreats to the Mistwood.
But when she is needed she always comes.
Isabel remembers nothing. Nothing before the prince rode into her forest to take her back to the castle. Nothing about who she is supposed to be, or the powers she is supposed to have.
Prince Rokan needs Isabel to be his Shifter. He needs her ability to shift to animal form, to wind, to mist. He needs her lethal speed and superhuman strength. And he needs her loyalty—because without it, she may be his greatest threat.
Isabel knows that her prince is lying to her, but she can't help wanting to protect him from the dangers and intrigues of the court . . . until a deadly truth shatters the bond between them.

Now Isabel faces a choice that threatens her loyalty, her heart . . . and everything she thought she knew.

My Review:

This was my first book I have ever read that was about shape-shifters, so I was leery about it, but I told myself that if the book was as good as its cover I would love it. I did. This book was EPIC!!! Leah Cypess is a fantastic writer. You hated the characters you were supposed too and love the characters you were supposed. And to make it even better there wasn't any 'scenes'. And, trust me, when you read this book there is one twist that will knock your socks off! This book was galactic! (which mean it was really really good.) If you like paranormal and shape-shifting definitely check this book out! I cannot wait to read Nightshade. :D
