Overview

Still Life with Shape-shifter by Sharon Shinn

National bestselling author Sharon Shinn presents a passionate, heart-wrenching story of secrets and the lengths to which we’ll go to protect those we love...
 
For her entire life, Melanie Landon has hidden the fact that her half sister, Ann, is a shape-shifter, determined to protect her from a world that simply wouldn’t understand. When a man shows up asking about Ann—who has been missing for months—Melanie fears the worst, and with good reason. Freelance writer Brody Westerbrook knows about the existence of shape-shifters and intends to include Ann in the book he’s writing.
 
While Melanie is immediately drawn to the stranger, she knows better than to trust him, and she denies his claim. But when Ann finally reappears, looking thin and sick, Melanie realizes exposure is the least of their worries. Protecting her sister has always been an enormous part of Melanie’s life, but as Ann’s health rapidly deteriorates, Melanie must come to grips with the fact that saving her may mean letting go…

This is a novel that's hard to put down when it's past time to be sleeping! Shinn has always been a graceful and compelling storyteller, but in this book, and the previous one in the series, the reader becomes intimate with characters in a way not often found in urban fantasy--or in any fiction, for that matter. Some of her best work, and I've been a fan for a long time.

Sharon Shinn is one of my favorite authors. She tells the story brilliantly with characters that are real along with the full spectrum of emotions and hopes that each of us know so well. She made the concept of shape-shifting believable and more human than not.

Sharon Shinn is one of my favorite writers. Her stories about shapeshifters are among the best in the genre, and this one lives up to its predecessors. Loved it!

Definitely not one of her best but I dont regret having read it. It was enjoyable enough, just seems to be lacking her usual enthusiasm.

I loved this book. It's a realistic story of what it would actually be like to live with shapeshifters in the real world.
