Book: Mistwood by Leah Cypess
Genre: YA Fantasy
From: the library
The thing that I enjoyed about this book is the fact that its premise/plot/storyline was much different from most of these sorts of books I've been reading lately. There was no new girl who meets a mysterious boy and falls in love. There was no girl who discovers she is half something else and the mysterious boy is all something else!
Instead, we have a girl who is from the beginning, a shape shifter. The whole purpose of her existence, from the dawn of time, is to protect the king and his family. But, something happened years before the book opened, that messed things up, and now she is confused and having a bit of amnesia and needs to figure out what's really going on.
And that's when things get really interesting, when we find out what's really going on. There's twists and surprises galore. I would be curious to know if all those who think they are amazing predictors can predict what ends up happening in this one! Very fun.
Bottom line: I really liked it a lot!
