Overview

Before the Sons of Destiny came to be, shapechangers ruled the heart of a shattered empire and navigated the uncertain shifts of fate…

Years have passed since there was any sighting of Family Mongrel on the Shifting Plains. Yet traces remain, and they lead south into the Correda Mountains. As a favor to his brother and sister-in-law, Kenyen Sin Siin has taken it upon himself to track down these hints from the past and make sure the curs have not survived. The trail grows colder, more tangled, until he’s trapped in a valley where not everyone is as they seem.  He will either adapt and survive or be uncovered and perish before his mission is complete.

 

Wary of strangers and distrustful of the unfamiliar, Solyn Ys Rei and her best friend have formed a secret resistance. One of a rare few with the ability to stand up to and evade enemies, she must still tread with great caution, particularly when even her best friend starts acting oddly. Allies could be enemies lurking in disguise, and a stranger’s face could hide a new foe as easily as a new friend.

EVEN BETTER THAN BOOK #1 Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson: The SONS OF DESTINY series is one of my favorites, so it stands to reason that the spin-off, SHIFTING PLAINS, would be high on the anticipated list... Jean Johnson has not disappointed, and book #2 was even better than book #1 in my humble opinion. This series is a complex fantasy world full of robust characters and intricate plots. The Shifter focuses on a native of the Shifting Plains visiting a neighboring land to uncover a nefarious plot that some rogues have set in motion. The hero of the story is complex and wonderful, having to play 2 parts, and his relationship with the heroine is sweet and rich. The heroine is spunky and fun, if a bit naive. She's smart though, and they make a wonderful leading pair. The antagonists of the story are despicable and the kind that you love to hate. Jean writes them perfectly and they were the perfect black to the good guys' white. All in all, LITERAL ADDICTION gives The Shifter 4 stars and would recommend it to all Jean Johnson fans and fantasy lovers.
