Shift in the Water, Elemental Shifter Series, Patricia D. Eddy


Genre: Romance, Sci-fi and Fantasy


This sounded right up my street but…though it was a good book for me it wasn’t a great one. First novels in a series have a tough job however, so maybe I need to read book two before finally deciding this sereis isn’t for me.

I found the characters to be a bit lacking. Mara was a tough strong lead and I liked that, but her insistence on “I’m dying” began to get irritating…then Cade. He started off great, a strong Alpha male, but as time went on he became a weird sort. I know he’d been through horrors but he just didn’t seem to have that Alpha confidence any more – a shame as his pack were a loyal bunch.

I loved a “good” nasty person, they add so much to a story and Katrina should have been that, but again for me there was something missing. It made for an interesting read, and its a strong and fresh idea but I just didn’t gel with the characters somehow which meant for me its just a three star one off read.

As ever remember we all want different things and though its a three from me its a five for many others. It just depends what you’re looking for and I want my shifter read to be along the lines of the fabulous Patricia Briggs.

Stars: three, lots of potential but the characters let it down for me
