Isabel remembers 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, her lethal speed, and her 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 picked up Mistwood by Leah Cypess with fairly low expectations. It has gotten quite a few mixed reviews that left me feeling a little wary – I put off reading it for over two years after its release despite my obsession for all things YA high fantasy! With a push from Liz at Consumed by Books, I f...
