    Completely unique perspective

    To view the world from the various perspectives outlined in the book was captivating. Read it with an open mind and imagination. I loaned my copy to someone sometime back and it has not been returned. I am seriously considering another copy just to have it and read it again in the future.

    too predictable

    I found The Shape-Changer's Wife to be very predictable. I did like Aubrey's character growth, but that was the only highlight for me.

    Sharon Shinn is a gifted writer

    I just finished Archangel and I am so glad I discovered this author. Her stories are so unique and well written that I am truly sad when I finish one of them. I recommend all of this ladys books to anyone who reads fantasy. I couldnt put her books down.
