Overview

Revised with new scenes and re-released in 2015!

Seventeen-year-old Lora has plans and knows how her future should pan out. But the future is a finicky thing and has an agenda of its own.

After high school graduation Lora wants to move far away from the ridiculous rules and restrictions of her godmother, and to live as a writer with her best friend in Seattle. She always felt uncomfortable in the small town she grew up in and knows that once she reaches Seattle, she’ll find people like her, writers and artists who understand her plight.

When Lora falls for a hot new windsurfer in town, she learns his life is like a fairytale story similar to the fiction she enjoys writing. At the time he tells her that she’s a long lost princess, a shapeshifter, and in danger from an evil lord wanting to kill her, her godmother abandons her, and she’s forced to go along with tales he’s telling and leave all she knows behind. After all, she always wanted to live around people like her, she just assumed they’d be human.

Can she embrace the life of the leader she was born to be, battle an evil lord, and end lives to save a land she knows nothing about, or will this story she’s living end badly?

This is one of those books that takes you by surprise. The story starts off with Lora who lives in a small town in Washington where nothing much happens. Lora spends her days watching windsurfers at the beach, hiking with her friends Jess and Johnnie and waitrsesing on the weekends. After her mom disappeared when she was younger her mom's best friend Aubrey takes her in to live with her. The beginning has some crazy, funny and unpredictable moments. Among those Lora's best friend has a new look and attitude when she returns from vacation, a man gets eaten by a bear and Lora herself encounters a large bear while hiking. Not to mention some of the strange people she meets along the way. Then we meet hottie windsurfer Chance. Say no more, yeah he's hot, charming and an all around nice guy but there's so much more to him. Lora and Chance meet and sparks fly instantly and the romance just blossoms from there. I love shapeshifters and the way the author brought shapeshifting into this story was very interesting. Something different that I have not read before. The whole fairy tale world was so well done and it made me wish it could happen to me. I loved all the characters, even the evil ones. This story has it all, romance, action, adventure, suspense, mystery and friendship. There are lots of twists and turns, laugh out loud moments and hot guys. I mean who doesn't love hot guys? I love paranormal romance but don't worry there is plenty of action and suspense too. I was drawn in from the first page and didn't want to put it down. I liked the ending and can't wait to read what's to come next in this series. I'm now a fan of this author and will continue to read her books. This ARC e-book was given to me by the author for review. This did not affect my review in any way.

Loramendi's Story is the latest word treat from Angela Carlie, and the first in the new Lord of Shifters series. The wonderful characters combined with an intriguing plot made for a story that pulled you into it and wouldn't let you go until the very last page! I loved the fairytale elements that were woven throughout the story, a refreshing twist on the paranormal genre. The story was full of twists and turns that never went where I thought it was going, a wonderful thing since I love the unexpected. The mix of reality and fantasy was fun and it kept you turning the pages to see what was going to happen next. The characters were what really drove the story for me. I love an understated heroine, and Lora was that for me. After her mother disappeared when she was very young, she had been taken in and raised by Aubrey, her mother's best friend, never knowing much about either of her parents. She began the novel as a slightly shy and maybe even a little awkward girl, feeling a little plain Jane compared to her best friend Jess. Jess, although a minor character, had her own storyline that added a bit of reality to a fantasy tale. Chance, the leading man, was everything you could want in a guy. Think Edward meets sexy surfer hottie! Every one of the characters, no matter what their role in the story, were completely believeable. Even the otherworldly characters and creatures were masterfully created and perfectly able to be imagined as real. In all of her books, the author creates such personable characters, characters that draw you in and make you feel with and for them. They make you feel invested in their stories, and when the story ends, they leave you wanting more. You can have the most interesting premise of a plot in the world, but without amazing, well-rounded characters, it will fall flat. Carlie is an expert at having both and weaving them together to make a story alive for the reader. Loramendi's Story comes out on August 7th at the retail stores listed above, which will be linked on Release Day. I highly recommend picking up this book, as well as all of her others!
