A rattlesnake bite.
A moment of panic.
Everything changed in the blink of an eye.
Nickie learns the hard way, not only do shapeshifters exist, but she is one.
Now she’s learning to deal with increased speed, strength and healing and at the same time, thinking she's losing her mind because suddenly, she can hear things. To add to her challenge, she’s learning that people she thought she knew have secrets she never imagined.
Can Nickie navigate all these changes alone or will help come from an unexpected ally?
The idea of the story is good. The author would benefit greatly from the services of a pro editor and proofreader. The writing lacks soul and too many mundane details are added and often repeated over and over. Taking out the mundane could have cut this by a third.
I was shocked that she never described Brandon after his shift! That made no sense to me. And the weirdness of what era this was set in was not explained. Certain things hinted that it was set in the future, but it was just a few meaningless details that didn't seem worth the effort to have this take place in the future.
I think the author has good ideas, but needs to hone her writing skills quite a bit. As I was reading this I thought it was a good effort for an 18-20 year old. There's promise there. Good luck!
This is missing some things...
First of all, this is a fairly good book. However, I feel that emotion in the characters is lacking, and there is no suspense or tension whatsoever. There doesn't seem to be much of a plot, as there is no conflict. The characters should be developed more.
I liked it
I really like this book and its concept. The story line was interesting and creative but it was vague in some ways. The finger pad door locks hinted towards this happening in the future but that was all. Also the chatacters seemed to be lacking emotion, especially when speaking. Their dialogues were bland and overly formal with sentences that seemed fake and forced. The story line kept me reading though. This book is definitely worth a try despite its flaws.
