This story has a strong cultural element brought by the half-blooded Shape-Shifter’s Lena, Nathan and Armand. The Poly relationships between the Therians is very valid to what this title has to offer. The paranormal line is very strong and fundamental for the plot to feel real.
Shifting Passions is a very solid debut book, with consistent pacing and very hot romance. Xakara is a talented author, tidying up this story very well.
SEXUAL CONTENT: 4/5
