Review: Mistwood by Leah Cypess

SummThe Shifter is an immortal creature bound by an ancient spell to protect the kings of Samorna. When the realm is peaceful, she retreats to the Mistwod.
But when she is needed she always comes.
Isabel remembers nothing. Nothing before the prince rode into her forest to take her back to the castle. Nothing about who she is supposed to be, or the powers she is supposed to have.
Prince Rokan needs Isabel to be his Shifter. He needs her ability to shift to animal form, to wind, to mist. He needs her lethal speed and superhuman strength. And he needs her loyalty—because without it, she may be his greatest threat.
Isabel knows that her prince is lying to her, but she can't help wanting to protect him from the dangers and intrigues of the court . . . until a deadly truth shatters the bond between them.
Now Isabel faces a choice that threatens her loyalty, her heart . . . and everything she thought she knew.
I read this book a year or so ago. When Nightspell came in I needed to refresh my memory. Or so I thought. This story is shrouded in legend, lore and mystery. I feel in love with the irresistably mystical world of Mistwood. Right from the beginning, I was drawn into this mysteriously, imaginative and original storyline. This book just goes to show that all shifter stories are not the same. The main character transforms, before your eyes, into the mythical creature. Thyat is once she gets all the facts straight in her head. Her superhuman strength and supernatural abilities made this story even more outstanding. This book really grabbed my attention and held me captivated to the very end. Even though this is a 339 page book, I flew right through it. I Highly recommend this fantastic book.
