From New York Times bestselling author Aubrey Rose and Nadia Simonenko comes a thrilling new shifter romance series: Shifting Fates: an Urban Fantasy Shifter Romance

What happens when a soldier falls in love with the shifter he's been sent to kill?

In post-nuclear Manhattan, there are two kinds of survivors: humans and shifters.


After his older brother Ben was killed by shifters, Cage followed in Ben's footsteps and joined the military. His job is simple: protect the surviving civilians in the wreckage of Manhattan and put down the dangerous shifter mutants prowling the streets. Bitter with revenge, he can't wait for a chance to get even with the monsters who killed his brother.


Half-wolf, half-human Bindi is one of Cage's monsters. She lives underground, hiding away from military patrols and protecting the ragtag pack of shifter children who have come to depend on her. She'd do anything to get out of the city and get her pack to safety, but nobody gets in - or out - of this city.

On Christmas Eve, Cage catches Bindi -in human form - stealing extra rations for her pack. In a moment of pity he lets her go, but not without being struck by a sense that there's something special about her. Something... different.

*** a Shifter Romance Series that will pull at your heartstrings ***

When he finally discovers her secret, Cage must decide what's more important to him - finally avenging his brother, or saving the woman he's come to love. And Bindi will learn a lesson about humanity...and about love.

My Thoughts - 3 out of 5 Unicorns - I liked it!!! The Cover is haunting but beautiful all at the same time.  It really gets your attention :) I liked this story.  Things you might want to know is this is a novella.  I’m not sure whether this is considered a serial series or not, but at least to me it seems to fit that mold.  This story has shifting point of views between Cage and Bindi.  Each chapter is labeled at the beginning of whose POV it is.  I only tell you this because some people do not like this, but it doesn’t bother me at all.   I think this new world I’ve been introduced to is unique and different to other shifter books I’ve read.  It has grabbed my interest in a big way, and I think it will only get better.  Sometimes with novella and serial series it takes me a couple books before I’m completely connected to the characters and their lives, and it is also hard to learn a lot about a new world when it is a novella in only one book. I really like Bindi.  She is so strong for a 20 year old taking care of a bunch of kids on her own in a world that hates her.  The kids seem fun, but I don’t know enough about them other than Kit seems adorable :)  Cage seems like a nice guy, but he is also blinded by his hate.  How can you hate an entire group of people simply because one did something bad?  But we have this problem in the real world, I have just never understood it.  Even in high school, I had a friend whose dad was killed in Jamaica, he hated a whole group of people based on their skin color because of one person.  It just makes no sense to me because there are good and bad people/animals in every group and species on the planet.  Sorry off on a tangent…lol Aubrey and Nadia do a great job writing the story.  I do not see any disconnect where you can tell two authors are writing it.  I love the descriptions and learning about their world.  I can’t wait to read more about this unique world. I recommend this novella to lovers of new worlds of shifters.  I can’t wait to see what comes next.

The authors do a noteworthy job in the area of describing in detail the area around Bindi and Cage throughout this book. What I like about this story is how far apart in life and beliefs Cage and Bindi are. Yet they leave the door wide open for the reader to imagine them together with sparks flying between them. I really admire Bindi's character and how she protects her collection of children that she makes into a family. Oh the other hand, Cage is in the military and though he follows the rules he still holds in his head his personal beliefs which he used in several occasions.

I loved this one! It kept me on the edge of my seat from the very first page. The urban setting is amazing; ghetto Manhattan, WOW! Because it's written in monthly installments the cliffhanger ending shouldn't have surprised me but still did. I fell in love with Bindi right away. She's trying so hard to do the right thing and hang on to part of her humanity while suppressing her own desires. Cage is a really complicated character as well; he's put himself into a pretty impossible situation and I can't wait to see where the next book takes them! I'm glad to hear that the heat level is going to be turned up a bit in future books as well because the potential sexual for chemistry between these two is awesome! This is a well written new series that's going to the top of my Must Read list! A copy of Shifting Fates was provided by that author in exchange for an honest review

I usually don't read post-apocalyptic world books but something about this book captivated me from the very beginning and had me on the edge till the very end leaving me wanting more. A supremely well-written story that keeps you guessing right up to the end. Shifting Fates has every possible thing you want in a book... tension, angst, fear, sadness, heartache, guilt, a great plot line and characters that you can empathize with. A great story about an imperfect love that despite all the obstacles, could lead to great things.

Very original story line with a new twist Well written and very entertaining to read this story. Very original story line with the world turned into a human against shifters after a would fallout. Very enjoyable to read and looking forward to the next book in the series. Highly recommended this book.

A great beginning to a wonderful new series. Like Aubrey Rose's other books, this one is just a little bit different than the typical, cookie-cutter shifter story. The characters she brings to life on the pages are both likable and flawed. Trying to live in the post-nuclear remains of NYC, they draw you in and keep you turning the pages. My only disappointment is that the sequel is not out there yet to continue the story and see what happens next.
