Amazing new series from a favourite author! In my top 5 reads of the year!
I am a huge D.B. Reynolds fan, her Vampires in America series is one of my all time favourites so when I saw she had a new series I hopped on Netgalley and requested an ARC and lucky me I was given one in exchange for an honest review. I will happily go out and buy this novel when it goes on sale October 26..yes it was that good!
I"m always looking for the unique, as an avid reader of PNR I do find that story lines can get repetitive or that the books all start to blend in my mind. Not with Shifter Planet. This is a totally new and unique take on the shifter sub genre of PNR...with a bit of a futuristic twist...I wouldn't say sci fi...it only happens to take place in a world in space. This story has a fresh yet raw, grittiness to it..there are truly dark moments yet with such wonderful characters the eye is always on the HEA prize. In this the first book of the series DBR took the time to build a wonderfully different world where shifters are the protectorate...strong, alpha, indomitable and caring. The characters are both strong and well matched...the conflicts so tough that there is a real suspense, action vibe to the novel. The main male Rhodry the alpha of our story is strong yet there is a vulnerability to him that DBR excels at...and like with ViA her strong female lead kicks complete ass.
This novel is my top 5 books read so far this year and I can't wait to dig into more in this series we have so much more to learn about Harp and the people who inhabit it....If I could give the book more than 5 stars I would ...what I can give it is a t'irla high recommendation and a push to make this your first purchase on OCTOBER 26....a must read! .
