If there’s one thing I love it’s shifters.
I’m a huge fan of Rachel Vincent’s Shifters (Werecats) series. They are Adult though but freaking awesome.
I just saw this book’s cover art released and I love it! I added the title to my Goodreads list back in August and now I’m ready to read it TODAY!

This cover is just WOW. It’s not the best graphics but it has a huge impact. I like that her pelt looks like it’s painted on. A cool effect. Clearly the girl is a shifter and there are other “dark” shifters present by the looks of the shadow figure in the woods. Her yellow eyes are very cool. I also love that “Other” looks gold and the font is pretty nifty too.
Here’s the blurb about the book.
“I can’t last much longer. It’s been one week, three days, and I forget how many hours.
My belly cramps, and I curl on my bed, staring out at the stars. A delicious breeze glides through my window and cools my sweaty forehead. The air smells of summer–mowed grass, recent rain, lingering barbecue–and tempts me more than I want to admit. Shards of moonlight and shadow shift on the wall. I clench my teeth and toes and try to ride out the pain. My bedroom drifts counterclockwise, and I shut my eyes.
It can’t be good for me, not shapeshifting.”
Seventeen-year-old Gwen hides a dangerous secret: she’s Other. Half-pooka, to be exact, thanks to the father she never met. Most Americans don’t exactly roll out the welcome mat for Others, especially not the small-town folks of Klikamuks, Washington. As if this isn’t bad enough, Gwen’s on the brink of revealing her true identity to her long-time boyfriend, Zack, but she’s scared he’ll lump her with the likes of bloodthirsty vampires and feral werewolves.
When a pack of werewolves chooses the national forest behind Gwen’s home as their new territory, the tensions in Klikamuks escalate-into murder. It soon becomes clear a serial killer is methodically slaying Others. The police turn a blind eye, leaving Gwen to find the killer before the killer finds her. As she hunts for clues, she uncovers more Others living nearby than she ever expected. Like Tavian, a sexy Japanese fox-spirit who rivals Zack and challenges her to embrace her Otherness. Gwen must struggle with her own conflicted identity, learn who she can trust, and-most importantly-stay alive.
Now that sounds awesome!
