I sat down with my RT magazine and searched for February shapeshifter releases. If I missed any, make sure and add them to the comments. And if you are particularly looking forward to any this month, let us know that too. We all like a good recommendation. This is for February; I’ll post March in a couple of weeks. I got behind this month..sorry…

    I just picked up a Paranormal Romance: Alexis Morgan’s Darkness Unknown. She uses Paladins as the heroes against the Others trying to invade our world. This would be the 5th book in the series.

    I picked it up as ‘research’ since I have my own idea for a paladin/magic series and there aren’t too many magic knight heroes around. I just have to figure out my time problem in plotting my series.

    Have you read any of Lisa Renee Jones’ Knights of White series for Nocturne? The last one Beast of Darkness came out in July so should still be available.

  3. Alaina said,

  4. Cathy said,

  5. Karin said,

    KISS OF FATE is on my list of books to get. I didn’t know about some of the others and will have to add them.

  7. Lori Devoti said,

    I’m glad people are finding new books to read. 🙂 Some of my favorite authors had releases this month.

    And welcome to the blog, Juliana! Battle Star Gallactica–I haven’t even watched the series yet, but with all the buzz I put the DVDs in my netflix cue!

    Hi, there’s a book that I’m desperately trying to find, it has to do with shapeshifting. I think it’s more for the mature teen, well. From what I remember it’s about a girl who can shapeshift into a panther and she must protect a teenage girl who is said to be a witch princess and she must marry the shapeshifting prince. If I remember correctly, there were dragons who could shift into humans and were also looking for the “witch princess” to either kill her or have her on their side. They can only shift into one type of animal.
    There was one part that I remember, the teenage girl said to be the witch princess was at the mall with friends or family. The dragons or bad guys were going to attack her when the good shifters shifted into their animal and protected her. The girl who can shift into a panther took the teenage girl and told her what’s been said to happen because of her, the girl being a typical teenage girl and not wanting to believe it, continues on with her life with them protecting her until the time comes where she has to fight off the bad guys.
    Anyway, happy ending , blah blah blah. Just wondering if anyone’s heard of it because I can’t find it anywhere and it’s bugging me. Thanks in advance

    It doesn’t ring any bells with me, but maybe someone else will remember it.
