Book Description

A sudden life threatening injury turns Nickie’s world on its ear, but not in a way she ever would have predicted. Nickie finds out that not only do shape-shifters exist, but she is one. The Kitsune are a race of shape-shifters that have been living in secret alongside humans for centuries. As Nickie struggles to master her newly discovered shape-shifting and the abilities it brings her, she learns that some of the people in her life are far more than she knew. Can Nickie handle all the changes headed her way on her own? Or does she have someone who can help her?

About the Author

Melissa was born and raised in Arizona, she's spent her entire life living across the southern half of the state. She's found that, along with her husband and three children, she prefers the small towns and rural life to feeling packed into a city.
She started reading at a very young age, and her love for series started early, as the first real books she remembers reading is the Boxcar Children series by Gertrude Chandler Warner. Through the years she's found that there's little she won't read, and her tastes vary from westerns, to romance, to sci-fi / fantasy and Horror.
She's been writing since 2009, and enjoys nearly every minute of it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing Shape-Shifter Story! July 31, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
What was immediately refreshing with Change, is that Melissa Stevens is very adamant that this is a novel about shape-shifts not werewolves. Don't get me wrong, I love werewolves, but I really liked that this book was based on a race of shifters who are in control of their actions, behaviour and thoughts, and are not simply driven by the moon.

In the novel we are introduced to a well-rounded character Nickie, who is likeable and easy to cheer for. We are additionally introduced to an interesting world of the Kitsune, and two interesting male characters. What I liked was that the love interest was not immediately predictable; it took many twists and turns.

I really enjoyed Change. It is well-crafted with an interesting plot development. The only thing that I struggled with a little was the dialogue. At times, it wasn't overly free flowing and was a little formal. However, this did not take away any of the pleasure I had following the character or action.

3 ½ pretty stars. 4 for Amazon and Goodreads.

4.0 out of 5 stars CHANGE March 27, 2013
Format:Paperback
Melissa is proving to be a prolific writer. After reading the first one of three, I was enthused with the characters, but left with questions. I read Fight and was hooked into a whole new genre for me to read. CHANGE is good.

4.0 out of 5 stars paced as fast as a wolf March 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Nice development of story and character, read the book in about a day and a half, could not put it down once I started. I think if this genre fascinates you, you will definitely like this book, and even you don't, their is a good possibly that you will enjoy it. This is not typically a genre I read, but I will definitely be buying the sequel when it comes out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book! July 18, 2012
Format:Paperback
When this book came out as a kindle edition, I bought it right away. Now that it is in paperback, I had to order that too. I read a lot and love series. If you love a good story with sequels, this is the book for you.

2.0 out of 5 stars There are no Kitsune in this book July 8, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A kitsune is a Japanese shape shifter. They turn into foxes usually seen with multiple tails (traditionally 9). Melissa Stevens seems to have wanted to use a different word for her shifters. I was disappointed when Nickie turned into a wolf. I would have been happier if she had left "Kitsune" completely out of her book if she was going to ignore the traditional mythology.

There are repetitive sections where she describes the same events multiple times. When Nickie turns into a wolf for the first time, you get the scene first hand, then she describes it to her best friend, then she tells the whole story again to her new alpha.There are long, overly detailed descriptions. How many times do you need a detailed breakdown of how someone puts on a pair of shoes, puts together a plate of food, gets ready for a shape-change, gets into her locked apartment and so-on.

About a third of this book should have been deleted.

It was a good idea for a story but the writing was absolutely terrible. Sentence structure was bad, conversations repeated, bad grammar, words misspelled, to name a few.
