Ron McBride thought his life couldn't possibly get any worse. He's been physically transformed, hunted across most of North America and is haunted by the failures of his past. Now it looks like he's about to die in the Canadian wilderness.
When he wakes up in the tiny community of Bear Claw, he thinks he's died and gone to heaven. Particularly when he meets Lily Charging Bull, a beautiful young woman whose family runs almost everything. But there's a reason why no one has found Bear Claw before.
Lily and her family are skinwalkers, able to shift between human and animal form. For generations, they've protected the lalassu who can't blend easily with human society, often lethally. The question is, will they offer Ron sanctuary or will he vanish like last year's snow?
Metamorphosis by Jennifer Carole Lewis
Ron McBride on the run from a secret organization that is using experimental procedures to create the ultimate human. Finds himself nudged by a huge bear, while stranded in a frozen land, that he is utterly ill-prepared to survive in. That nudge is the only thing that saves him from freezing to death…that and being saved by the locals. The locals of the community of Bear Claw.
Bear Claw is a hidden community of skinwalkers who are hiding from the very likes of what Ron is running from. Lily takes an instant liking to Ron but her family sees him as a threat and wants him dead.
Metamorphosis is a slow building shifter/skinwalker story that had plenty of action, suspense (romantic and plot wise) and growling cuddly bears to make for a highly entertaining read. To me, the unique twist that really pulled me in was, the not so often wrote about, skinwalker aspect.
I received this ARC copy of Matamorphosis from Jennifer Carole Lewis in exchange for a honest review.
Jennifer Carole Lewis is a full-time mom, a full-time administrator and a full-time writer, which means she is very much interested in speaking to anyone who comes up with any form of functional time-travel devices or practical cloning methods. Meanwhile, she spends her most of her time alternating between organizing and typing.
She is a devoted comic book geek and Marvel movie enthusiast. She spends far too much of her precious free time watching TV, especially police procedural dramas. Her enthusiasm outstrips her talent in karaoke, cross-stitch and jigsaw puzzles. She is a voracious reader of a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction and always enjoys seeking out new suggestions.
