About this ebook

Terra is shiftless --- a werewolf uncomfortable in her own animal skin. 

A decade after learning to squash her wolf and flee the repressive village where she grew up, the packless ache still gnaws at Terra's insides. But despite her yearnings, she struggles against being reeled back into her old life. 

To Terra's dismay, her father and half a dozen of his henchmen finally ambush her and demand her return. Yet they do offer one way out --- hunt down her nephew Keith, teach him to shift, and bring the youngster back into the fold in her place. 

Problem upon problem piles up as Terra strives to do her father's bidding. The female shifter has hidden from her wolf for so long that she finds herself unable to change back into canine form, and she also realizes that her nephew is too good-natured to survive for a minute walking in his grandfather's footsteps. Plus, there's an alpha standing in her way who's equal parts enticing and terrifying. 

Will Terra be able to relearn her werewolf abilities --- and overcome her morals --- before her father steals away her hard-earned independence? And as that tantalizing alpha reels her in closer and closer, the question becomes --- does she really want to stay away? 

Don't miss the first book in a series that has been described as a "good choice for Patricia Briggs fans."

I loved Terra and Wolfie! I really enjoyed this story about Terra, a lone wolf and Wolfie, the alpha of an outcast pack of wolves. This book was a great concept in having a lone female wolf that is strong and independent. Terra ran away from her pack at 17 and hasn’t looked back since. When her father does find her he issues her an ultimatum for returning to the pack. Terra has a chance encounter with Wolfie in a bookstore and again when she goes to meet the nephew she didn’t know about. Wolfie shows her that there is more than just bad alphas. Terra learns more about her wolf, Wolfie and true pack life in a short time. It’s a sweet story, I loved Wolfie and his backwards nature as much as I loved how strong Terra was.

I really loved the book ! It kept me on my toes, wondering what would happen next. It is something that i would certainly read.{But i already have :) } Once i read the summary review, i was like " This book sounds cool, i should read it." And that's how i ended up reading this. I would recommend this to all people who love fantasy, werewolves, or who are just book lovers like me. I say that this book is one that you won't forget, possibly for your lifetime.

I finished Shiftless in one day. I am a slow reader and for me to stay glued to my computer screen for eight or ten hours says a lot about the book. I loved it. It's different from any werewolf story I had ever read. I was expecting blood and guts but instead found a wonderful metaphor for how unique people come to know themselves, harness they inner monsters, and finally move into their rightful niche in the often dysfunctional "packs" with which they run. You don't have to be a werewolf to relate to the story. Still I think it would be an an enjoyable read for people with werewolf mania.
