I really liked that this story was from a different perspective of what Shifters are. Most are completely magical, but in this one, there's science, too. The character development is incredible; each one had their own personal struggle, as well as their common ones. I did enjoy it as well for the story-yes, there were sex scenes, but there was a good story, too, told from Alexis' - the MC, point of view. It was refreshing to have one point of view..this is HER story, although I DO like knowing what the other characters are thinking. I had trouble putting this one down, and read the whole thing in just 2-3 days (on my days off! :D).
