    Review Courtesy of Dark Faerie TalesQuick & Dirty: An interesting read, but not as engaging as I would have liked.Opening Sentence: “Married?” Traver hissed, leaning close as he reached over Solyn’s shoulder to hang yet another sprig of greenery on the drying lines strung in her mother’s herb-room.The Review:So in the world of Jean Johnson, before the invention of electricity and motors and the internet, *shudder* live regular mortals, some magical some not and a race of shapechanger [...]

    3,5/5Mon avis en FrançaisMon avis en AnglaisI didn't know Jean Johnson before and I am always curious to discover new authors. I admit that I had a little trouble to get into the story as I initially didn’t understand at all what was happening, but as we progress in the story we understand the world the author has created.Kenyen and a few of his own discover, one day, a body at the bottom of a cave. Learning that this man was killed so that another could take his place when taking his face, o [...]

    An entertaining story, filled with many twists and turns throughout. This book contains all the elements for a good story - a strong protagonist, a strong feminine role model / heroine, and several antagonists of varying degrees, intrigue, drama, danger, and of course, romance.What begins as an innocent enough exploration into some disturbing rumors about some shiftless rogues rapidly spirals out of control for our hero, forcing him to do some quick thinking on his feet - a skill he doesn't feel [...]

    This one was fun and creepy. The creepy part being that the people took their natural talent of being a shifter and corrupted it. The Shifterai take their talent to shift into animals as sacred, only shifting to other people when they are kids, after a certain age it is looked down upon. However these bad people they have banished use their talent to shift into other people, influential ones, so that they can steal their lives and the wealth and power they have. The talk of how they manipulate t [...]

    Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson:The SONS OF DESTINY series is one of my favorites, so it stands to reason that the spin-off, SHIFTING PLAINS, would be high on the anticipated listJean Johnson has not disappointed, and book #2 was even better than book #1 in my humble opinion. This series is a complex fantasy world full of robust characters and intricate plots. The Shifter focuses on a native of the Shifting Plains visiting a neighboring land to uncover a nefario [...]

    I enjoyed this fantasy romance. Though part of the Shifting Plains series, none of it took place on the Plains.Kenyen Sin Siin is part of a mission to find out if Family Mongrel, those who abused his new sister-in-law's mother, is still out there, and if they're causing problems for others.Solyn Ys Rei is the Healer's daughter/apprentice in her valley home, and she and her best friend Traver have discovered that some of the men in the village have been replaced by shifters wearing their faces, a [...]

The Banished Shifters have been kidnapping members of various villages and stealing their faces by shifting to look like them. They are looking for something in a village that Kenyen is traveling to and when he helps save a young boys life, he takes his place to go undercover. I on [...]

    The Shifter by Jean JohnsonGrade: DNFI read almost one hundred pages of The Shifter by Jean Johnson and I still am not sure what was going on. Mrs. Johnson has created a fantasy world but doesn’t explain the world or the people in it at all. I’m not sure if she explains it in the previous book but it’s been awhile since I spent this much time going “huh?”. The writing is very different from most books and that also threw me for a loop and made it difficult to want to continue. I am a h [...]

    This is a sequel of sorta to Shifting Plains, but I almost think it works better as a standalone if you've already read the Sons of Destiny series, especially The Cat. A lot of the book is devoted to world-building, about half of which devoted Johnson fans probably already knew. Since I preferred Shifting Plains, this was a solid 3.5-4 star book for me, but again, if you loved Elizabeth Vaughn's War series, I really recommend you check these two out. Now I really gotta read A Soldier's Duty. I'v [...]

    I must say that this review is not specifically about this book, but about the author. Jean Johnson is an amazingly creative and diverse author. I love her Shifting Plains and Sons of Destiny series (more please.) While I have not read her "Theirs Not to Reason Why" series as it doesn't appeal to me, my husband has read it and he really enjoys that series. It is a wonderful thing to be able to appeal to more than one genre. I applaud you, Ms. Johnson. Please, please keep up the good works!

    A fun shape-shifter romance. Kenyen comes across Traver being chased. Kenyen then has to make the chasers believe that he is evil like them. When Kenyen takes on Travers likeness Solyn (Traver's finacee) doesn't readily believe that it is the original Travers. Mystery about what the evil shifters are looking for, romance between Kenyen & Solyn ensue. Mistakes, mistrust, betrayals, double crosses and friends and allies arriving just-in-time.

    Another one in the world of the shattered Aian Empire, set before the Sons of Destiny series. In some ways I could see a resemblance to her Theirs Not To Reason Why series. She goes into a lot of detail about minutiae that doesn't really matter. Overall, I enjoyed the story and I liked her characters.

    Catherine
    DNFThe style just isn't working for me. It has too much of a young, simple, YA feel to it. If my complaint was anything other than the style of the book, I'd continue to push through. But I just don't think I'm going to be any happier with the style no matter how far I read.

    Yvette
    A sequel that is competently written but lacking the qualities that made the first of the series an interesting read. More specifically, too much cheese making, little world building, and characters that are not as interesting. 2.5 stars

    Amanda
    It's decent, but not as good as some of her other ones.

    Bridget Moynihan
    Got to read this one for free. Enjoyed it

    Mollie *scoutrmom*
    Great characters, but the writing was not up to her usual standard.

    Rita C
    I liked the first one better, and I like the Sons of Destiny series and the Soldier's Duty series better than this series, but it is still good.
