Format: Paperback
Shifter by Judith & Garfield Reeves-Stevens is the first book in the Chronicles of Galen Sword.

Shifter introduces us to the mysterious Galen Sword. Sword is a troubled man. Orphaned at an early age, Sword has spent most of his life as a playboy looking for new thrills. One night, Sword finds himself in the ER after a horrible car accident. The ER staff decides he is to far gone and they move on to the next patient. At death's door, Sword is healed and gains memories of his childhood. These memories are of a family life and heritage he never knew. Sword is the heir to the Victor of Pendragon but he does not know what this means or where he is from.

After the restoration of these early memoirs, Sword is convinced he is not of this world. He is certain werewolves and magic exist and is on a mission to prove this. To aid him in his quest are Melody Ko, a brilliant scientist with commando training, Ja'Nette, a young women with the ability for translocation, and Dr. Adrian Forsyte, a paraplegic scientist with secrets to keep.

Sword and his menagerie find what they seek and then realize just how deadly paranormal beings are. What starts out as an investigation into the existence of paranormal beings ends in a fight for their lives and the survival of our world.

At the conclusion of Shifter, Sword gains a great deal of knowledge about himself. This knowledge comes at a huge price. The world as he knows it is completely changed and expanded. I am looking forward to the next two installments of this imaginative storey, Nightfeeder and Dark Hunter.

According to the author's website, Judith & Garfield Reeves-Stevens are New York Times bestselling novelists of thrillers Quicksilver and Icefire. They authored media tie-ins for Alien Nation and Star Trek. The author's have written numerous novels and screenplays for television and screen. The Reeves-Stevens's currently live in Los Angeles.

A Good Read Dec 23 2004
By J. C. Staufer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This title was recommended by a friend familiar with the offerings of Babbage Press; I was not disappointed.

The main character Galen Sword is intriguing, and the blend of modern day technology with a hidden world of high fantasy calls to mind such books as the Harry Dresden series, and novels by White Wolf. What sets this novel apart, is an interesting premise: a character who seeks to uncover his past and recover a birthright stolen from him. The supporting characters seem well-developed, and intriguing, suggesting quite a few hidden secrets to be uncovered throughout the course of the series.

In all, a great read, and am looking forward to sampling the other two books in the series.
