Welcome to my stop on the Skin Deep blog tour!
I'll be sharing a short excerpt and a quick review of the book ;)
*** Panther Shape-shifter Kailin Odel just wants to be normal. Leaving her clan, and her Alpha
responsibilities, to live with her grandmother in Chicago had been the best thing for her.
Only then did she discover her ability to track and kill the soul sucking undead creatures
called Wraiths. Now she protected the humans, and had something to be proud of.
But, when she discovers the body of a murdered shape shifter, Kailin has to come to terms
with the reality that her own kind are just as vulnerable as the humans.
The closer Kailin gets to the killer the more she has to face the intricacies of her people.
When the time comes can she accept who and what her real purpose is? ***
"These last few minutes had felt like days of agony and fear. My breath still came in littlehysterical hiccups. Where had the cool, calm wraith hunter gone?Things changed when hunter became prey."
I'll have to make this review quick because of RL things.
I hate when RL gets in the way of me enjoying a book, but that's just what happened when I picked up Skin Deep and I hope sometime later this year I can come back to the book and read it yet again to enjoy it and take my time as I usually do instead of rushing my read :( So forgive my vague and short review but I couldn't even take notes :/
My thoughts?When shape shifters are involved, I'm always wary and always excited.
I know, I'm weird. But since they are one of my favorite fantasy creatures I'm always looking forward to reading amazing things, new things, fresh things about them.
Author T.G. Ayer made me believe that the tittle of her book is completely adequate to her story. And delivered a really if not fresh then really good take on shape shifters.
The main character, Kailin, whose name I love by the way, had a very strong "voice" and no matter what she always got trough to me with that. She's strong and somewhat stubborn and I liked her all the more for that.
The plot was simple but good and there were actually a few turns in the story that I might have not been able to predict... Specially THAT...
Also, can I say COVER LOVE PLEASE?!!! Look at that amazing and gorgeous cover!! It goes perfectly well with the book!
When you discover you're more powerful than what you ought to be... But also more mortal than you thought? <- I know that sounds weird but I didn't know how to put it. Wraiths stink -___- And can we say #TeamLogan!!!!!!!!!! -sighs-
I hope you take the time to pick up this book and give it a try.
I liked it.
I give this book,
old enough to recognise that reading
was a doorway into my imagination.
Poetry was my first foray into the art of
the written word. Books were my best
friends, my escape, my haven. I am
essentially a recluse but this part of my
personality is impossible to practise
given I have two teenage daughters,
who are actually my friends, my teamakers, my confidantes… I am blessed
with a husband who has left me for golf.
It’s a fair trade as I have left him for
writing. We are both passionate
supporters of each other's loves – it
My heart is currently broken in two. One
half resides in South Africa where my old
roots still remain, and my heart still
longs for the endless beaches and the smell of moist soil after a summer
downpour. My love for Ma Afrika will never fade. The other half of me has
been transplanted to the Land of the Long White Cloud. The land of the
Taniwha, beautiful Maraes, and volcanoes. The land of green, pure beauty
that truly inspires. And because I am so torn between these two lands – I
shall forever remain cross-eyed.
