About the Author
Being a teenager can be complicated. Being a teenager when you happen to be a Shifter, when the universe is your playground, when you live with vampires or your world is under siege by demons is even more complicated. Or at least, that’s what Angela’s characters tell her; her own teenage years were fairly uneventful… and still, rather complicated at times, too. She grew up in France, the quiet, bookish, geeky older sister to an athletic younger brother, and started at fourteen to put down on paper the stories that were playing in her head. Her first story was a sci-fi short set in space... and was probably sufficiently inspired by Star Wars to trigger a lawsuit! Her next effort was a longer, also sci-fi story that earned her the first place in a novella contest in her high school. Her parents' stunned expressions upon receiving an invitation to attend the prize ceremony were interesting...although really, what did they think she was doing, typing on her electronic typewriter for hours every night? Switching to writing in English was a process, and for a time Angela focused on more adult stories, but her first loves have called her back for too long to ignore them any longer... You can catch up with her on her blog or Facebook, or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org

But, overall, it the kind of story that you like to read that didn't require a major commitment. The kind that you could read and guess the ending but would finish anyway.
You if you enjoy a sci-fi in the future with a small amount of the paranormal then you may want to pick this book up.
It was a great read, different than I expected. The time jumping wasn't too bad, but it did take some getting use to. You would either flash forward or flash back, and if that doesn't bother you then get yourself a copy of this book. I found myself wondering what time period I was reading. Also I would have like to have know a little bit more about the disease that was going around, what caused it?
Other than that it was a perfect story, you had a small amount of romance, and a little bit of action. I could easily see this story maybe turning into a series or at least having a book two. As I did wonder if Zaren coming back ended up helping. I would like to see if she was able to help the village.
This is a quick and enjoyable read that deals with shifters and the future.
Yseult has managed to transition her skills for crafting relationships that are believable and emotional, with a definition and clarity that is rare in many books geared to this market. Although just a short story, with frequent time line switches that detail the growing relationship between Zaren and Kris to their desire to protect each other after their forbidden encounter and adventure, the story doesn't feel confusing or muddled.
The worlds and their expectations for each in their own community are clearly detailed, and their emotional connection to one another, which dances with the romantic, is only heightened with the sweetly detailed scenes of learning to communicate with one another, sharing words and thoughts as they travel through Haldae together. Of course, there are more chapters in this story yet to be written: the author left us with plenty of questions and a huge `what next' that will keep readers hungry for the next installment.
A perfect starter for this series, with intrigue and crafting that will capture the imagination of readers both young and old.
I received an eBook copy from the author for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review, and all conclusions are my own responsibility.
