Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for the Edie Spence series

"Dark and clever full moon insanity that will get into your blood, crawl under your skin and haunt your dreams." Sherrilyn Kenyon, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Dark Hunter series

“The best debut  I've read all year. Nightshifted is simply amazing!” Kat Richardson, bestselling author of the Greywalker series

"Edie Spence has a distinctive, appealing and no-nonsense style that you won’t quickly forget. Add to that a paranormal population that needs medical care for some very odd reasons, and you have a winner of a debut novel." --Kate Elliott, author of the Cold Magic series

"Fresh, exciting, dark, and sexy, Nightshifted is excellent urban fantasy that grabs you by the throat and pulls you along for a wild ride. Cassie Alexander is an author to watch!" --Diana Rowland, author of Mark of The Demon

There's so much paranormal stuff out there that I often find myself longing for some true urban fantasy. Nightshifted is the one I was starving for. It's gritty and dark, its heroine jaded and tough, and both of them are studded with moments of humor and human frailty.” –Angieville.com

4.0 out of 5 stars Angieville: SHAPESHIFTED June 4, 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I do not know how Cassie Alexander manages to serve up two installments in her wonderful Edie Spence series each year, but I am not one to look a gift horse in the mouth. Please to be continuing in this vein, Ms. Alexander! Because this series just gets better and better. And finishing SHAPESHIFTED knowing I still have Deadshifted to look forward to at the end of this year just fills me with both gratitude and excitement. I worry about my favorite urban fantasy heroines. I worry. I am frequently forced to be away from them at times when I would really rather not leave. And when it comes to Edie, that was getting to be pretty much all the time. Her life was fairly decently fractured at the end of the last book. I wasn't sure how she would cope with the enforced changes, and I wondered how long she would spend on the outside once things started up again in the new book. The questions that occupy my mind, you guys. You wouldn't know it to look at me, but it's a cacophony in here. So when SHAPESHIFTED landed on my doorstep, I spent next to no time at all clearing my night (and my TBR) in order to dive right in.

No one believes Edie's story. Not that she's talking that much. She is seeing a therapist to try to deal with the . . . issues . . . that plague her. But even her therapist's open mind isn't wide enough to fit the host of supernatural creatures that make up her day-to-day life. Or at least that used to. Having been effectively shunned by the Creepy Crawly Community at large (and having lost her job at their hands), Edie is understandably finding it difficult to move on. Grasping at the ropes of her old life, she begins searching for work in a less hostile environment.

Review Courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy

With the huge cliffhanger at the end of MOONSHIFTED I was excited to see what was in store for Edie in SHAPESHIFTED and was not disappointed by all the supernatural craziness I've come to expect in the Edie Spence series. The great thing about this series is that there are consequences for actions and no real reset button. Edie is quite literally friendless and jobless this time out, and her enemies don't care about uneven odds. she treks into very dangerous territory dealing with some seriously creepy characters and the result is a plot that is fun, fast-paced, emotional, and at times pretty scary

After being fired at the end of the last book, in SHAPESHIFTED Edie takes a job at regular clinic. Seeing her out of her element was fun since she has to deal with human patients rather than supernatural creatures. I love that while Edie is lonely and depressed over everything going on in her life she doesn't let that hold her back from doing something about her situation.

While we meet new characters thanks to this new job, I was missing her old friends and luckily some do make appearances which is both thrilling and concerning considering Edie's shunning. One of the highlights of SHAPESHIFTED is Edie's new buddy Olympio, a young boy whose grandfather is a healer. He was a fun addition to this story with his `street smarts' and his amusing interactions with Edie. On Edie's love life there is some movement and the nice thing about this new-ish relationship is that it evolves from trust and friendship rather than an out of the blue love at first sight thing or even lust.

SHAPESHIFTED has shifted the Edie Spence series into a new direction for Edie.

You know what they say; the third time is the charm and that definitely holds true with Shapeshifted, book three in Cassie Alexander's Edie Spence series. In the previous two installments Edie was a noob in the paranormal world, struggling to make sense out of vampires and werewolves, but in this novel she finds herself shunned, back among humans and longing for a taste of the crazy she was forced to leave behind.

The first half of this novel had me scratching my head wondering when the vamps were going to show up; the story read like your everyday hospital drama which wasn't at all what I expected. However, once I experienced my little light bulb moment at about the midway point, I couldn't help but marvel at Alexander's clever deception. The paranormal had been right in front of my face the whole time and I didn't even see it!

Needless to say, going from working at Y4 to a sleep clinic is like night and day for Edie. Well, not really because she worked the night shift at both jobs but you get my meaning. Anyway, to say that she was bored watching others sleep would be a gross understatement so what does she do? Goes out and applies at a clinic in gang territory. Werewolves vs. hoodlums; same difference, right? I couldn't help but shake my head at her because this girl has a serious death wish. Although, I did admire her reasons and determination to save her dying mother.

When Ti shows up I did cringe a little, I'm not going to lie. The prospect of Edie reuniting with her ex zombie boyfriend worried me. The ick factor alone was enough to dampen my enjoyment of Nightshifted and I had no desire for a repeat performance in this installment.
