Their choice had been taken away long before they were born.

Two Seattle 16-year-old Shape Shifters, Jatred and Jasmira, are torn between following their hearts and protecting the order of the world. The path of the star-crossed lovers leads only to destruction.

The ancient Shape Shifter Races—the Winter wolves and the Summer leopards— live among humans and fit perfectly into modern life, while keeping secret societies with their own laws and traditions.

Two Goddesses, Crystal and Amber command their respective Races. One is on a quest to tilt the scale of power to her side. The other will never let it happen, even if it means sacrificing Jatred and Jasmira’s love.

The Amulet commissioned to bring stability into the world remains hidden and concealed with the help of advanced technology. Jatred is the guardian of the Amulet and key to the Goddesses’ conflict.

When the forces of nature are disrupted, earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanic eruptions rake the world. The Goddesses go to war and summon all their Shifters to join in the conflict. Jatred and Jasmira must fight not only for their love but to protect the future of both Races and humankind.


My Review:

I bought this ebook for 2.99 via Amazon.
I give this book 4.5 stars

Wow. Such a different shifter story! We follow lovers Jatred and Jasmira. Jatred is from the Winter race of shifters run bythe Goddess Crystal where as Jasmira is from the Summer race run bythe Goddess Amber. Two shifters from different races. Lovers. They aren't supposed to be. It is looked down upon by the Goddesses.
Think Romeo and Juliet in a way. Only here after Jatred is forbidden to be with Jasmira by Crystal and he doesn't listen. She removes his memory of Jasmira completely. (I couldn't imagine my husband not remembering me. I would be devastated.) I could feel the pain that Jasmira was going through of her love not knowing who she was but that he could remember everyone else.
The ten thousand year mark is upon them. The Goddesses are against each other to gain THE power from the amulet that the Royal of the Winter race has under their protection.
Did I mention that the royals from each race was Jatred and Jasmira? No? Yes,well it is true.
This story so wonderfully written allows you to follow their journey, destruction, power, losses, and pain. It is up to you to find out if they can ever be together again or if they are doomed to fail in the battle.
