The Spirian Saga continues with Shifter, bringing back familiar characters and an old grudge that resurfaces as a new and surprising conflict between the Spirians and Shadows.
Standing at the apex of this conflict is Zebastian, a young Spirian with unique gifts that raise concern among his clan. After escaping the Shadows' clutches, he is accused of killing his brother and is branded a monster. Now banned from his clan, Zebastian confronts the crossroads that divide good and evil. Have the Shadows destroyed all that is pure in him?
Kaili, a feisty female with high standards, has shunned every male who has tried to know her, earning her the detested title of "Ice Queen." That is until she meets Zebastian, a wolf shifter with a dangerous side that intrigues her spirit. Pursuing him, however, comes with a price. Is it one she is willing to pay?
Time runs short as the Shadows rise with forces that threaten the Spirian clans. Will the Spirians prevail over impossible odds or will the Shadows rise the victor and claim a promising prize that ensures future conquests?
"Portch keeps the pace moving, the plot thickening, the characters fighting, arguing, and loving to the last page. Shifter, like all the Spirian Saga, is a refreshing new take on paranormal fiction, using several elements from other supernatural tales, but adding new twists to them. The books are better written than the Twilight novels, and Portch’s world is just as complicated and entrancing as Meyer’s. Furthermore, Portch began writing her novels long before Twilight was published. These stories are also more adult than the Harry Potter series. Portch’s characters feel like real people, and despite their supernatural abilities, they are very human in their emotions, behaviors, wants, and needs."
