Overview

Shape-shifters’ Rule #1: Don’t let the humans know you still exist.

Rule #2: If a human finds out about you, silence them.

Some rules were meant to be broken…

Ranealya ruthlessly plays by the rules and has outlived most of her race because of it. If she wants to survive, she’ll have to stick to them, especially with a genocidal tyrant hell-bent on destroying all the non-humans in the realm. But everything falls apart when a human saves her life.

Gregor knows he’s inviting trouble when he helps a wounded shape-shifter, but he can’t pass up the opportunity to study one before they become extinct. She disturbs the quiet order of his scholarly existence, vexes him in more ways than he can count, and encourages him to break enough of the kingdom’s laws so that not even being the king’s cousin will save his head. The problem is, he’s already lost his heart.

Editorial Reviews

Jess at Starcrossed Reviews
The first thing that came to mind upon finishing this book is "Holy Crap! Is that it?!" I did not want this book to end. It was such a riveting read that I read it in a day... simply put it grabs you by the boot straps so to speak and hauls you into the story until you are helpless but to keep turning the page until you find out what happens.
Katie at I Smell Sheep
"I was blown away by the creative world Crista has compiled in her novels. It takes some new ideas about magic and mixes in old folklore and other more traditional ideas... it's definitely one that the young adult crowd would also be able to dive into."
Becky at Underworld Love Addiction
This was a riveting tale of two couples and an amazing tale of Elgean and it's inhabitants. I hadn't heard much about this booK... but I was certainly impressed. This is a quick read as the story just flew by. I will definitely be continuing this series if she writes more...Overall a great read.

    If you like Lord of the Rings then definitely give this a try. I really enjoyed this book. It tells the story from more than one character and there is a lot going on but Crista makes it work without becoming confusing. I normally don't like stories where it shares points of view from more than one person but I did like this. It has love, adventure, sorrow, everything that should be in a book. I would definitely recommend this book.
