My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars

After reading Aimee Easterling’s short story,¬†Bloodling Wolf, I knew I would be interested in reading more about this well-developed world of werewolves.¬† Though I enjoy weres and shifters in well-written books, I wasn’t sure there was anything new to be found in the genre. ¬†Easterling’s short story¬†surprised me by throwing in some interesting twists I’d never seen before. I was eager to read the first novel in her new series. Shiftless did not disappoint.

I don’t want to say too much about the hero of the story, Wolfie, an alpha wolf who is more comfortable in his wolf form than his human one, or about the heroine for whom the book is named, Terra. This book has unexpected turns on every page, and I think it’s more fun for a reader to discover them as they happen, than for me to give them away here. But I will say that Terra has been without a pack for ten years, by choice, and as a result of her choice, has been unable to shift into her wolf form that entire time.

Wolfie, on the other hand, has an established pack of his own, many of whom are misfits who had never before found a place they belonged. That Terra will end up connecting with Wolife and find a home in his pack seems pre-destined, but don’t think that’s exactly how it all turns out. There are many more suprises in store, starting when Terra’s cruel and abusive father tracks her down, and forces her to make a choice she never thought she’d be faced with.

There is a sweet romance developing between Terra and Wolfie, appropriate for younger readers, and I was especially impressed with the solid, reliability of Wolfie’s nature. He’s stalwart and loyal, while being completely in control of his pack. He plays fair, and he’s always one step ahead of where you think he’ll be.¬†While Terra is strongly attracted to him from the start, she has learned very little about him, as a person. I’m guessing that will change in future books, because I’d like to know more about him, myself. Of course, it helps to have read Bloodling Wolf¬† first, as it does give you some background on how and why Wolfie started his own pack.

The world-building is quite good in Shiftless, and I have no doubt the next book in the series will be equally strong and original. It will be fun to watch these characters come into their full potential. Nice job all around, and well set up for the next book.
