Years have passed since there was any sighting of Family Mongrel on the Shifting Plains. Yet traces remain, and they lead south into the Correda Mountains. As a favor to his brother and sister-in-law, Kenyen Sin Siin has taken it upon himself to track down these hints from the past and make sure the curs have not survived. The trail grows colder, more tangled, until he’s trapped in a valley where not everyone is as they seem. He will either adapt and survive or be uncovered and perish before his mission is complete.
Wary of strangers and distrustful of the unfamiliar, Solyn Ys Rei and her best friend have formed a secret resistance. One of a rare few with the ability to stand up to and evade enemies, she must still tread with great caution, particularly when even her best friend starts acting oddly. Allies could be enemies lurking in disguise, and a stranger’s face could hide a new foe as easily as a new friend.

If you are looking for something different to read then Ms. Johnson's books are the way to go. The characters and the world they live in is so different from any other story out there. I can't wait for more.Read Full Review of The Shifter
I was just not a huge fan of the simple feel to the people and the world. It was all just…there. No real nuance or feeling of layers.Read Full Review of The Shifter
Jean Johnson's THE SHIFTER is a breath of fresh air. The world Johnson has created is unique from the numerous paranormal or fantasy romance novels on the market.Read Full Review of The Shifter
This book, however, is a bit heavier on plot and action than some of her others, although I still wouldn’t recommend it to someone looking for an action-heavy read; Jean’s pace is more exploratory.Read Full Review of The Shifter
There are some very sexy scenes in The Shifter, but there’s a sense of detachment to them that caused me to feel that something was missing from them. The frequent use of the characters’ very exotic full names is a bit of a stumbling block at first, although this strain eased considerably once they were referred to by their first names only...There were other moments, which are harder to define, that simply made the story feel “off” to me as well.Read Full Review of The Shifter
