The number of urban fantasy series I still get excited about becomes smaller every year. I’ve been disappointed by authors and characters more times than I can count, and I even flat-out refuse to speak of a series that went in an unwanted direction.( I’d totally tell you which series it is, but you know, I’m refusing to speak about it.;) I am very emotional where urban fantasy is involved and I can hold a grudge like nobody’s business. But sometimes (rarely) an author surprises me in a very dif...more

With the huge cliffhanger at the end of MOONSHIFTED I was excited to see what was in store for Edie in SHAPESHIFTED and was not disappointed by all the supernatural craziness I’ve come to expect in the Edie Spence series. The great thing about this series is that there are consequences for actions and no real reset button. Edie is quite literally friendless and jobless this time out, and her enemies don’t care about uneven odds. she treks into very dang...more

You know what they say; the third time is the charm and that definitely holds true with Shapeshifted, book three in Cassie Alexander’s Edie Spence series. In the previous two installments Edie was a noob in the paranormal world, struggling to make sense out of vampires and werewolves, but in this novel she finds herself shunned, back among humans and longing for a taste of the crazy she was forced to leave behind.

The first half of this novel had me scratching my head wond...more

Ms. Alexander had given us a bitter sweet ending making Shapeshifted by far the best of this series.” ~Under the Covers Book Blog

Shapeshifted takes off about 6months after Nightshifted had ended. Edie now has tried to live a “normal” life, shunned from any paranormal connections. With her memories in tact, she is finding it hard not to think about her friends. Needless to say, Edie has been trying her best to live despite her sadness. Unfortunately, life will throw Edie a...more

*My Thoughts*

Seven months have passed since Edie was shunned from the supernatural world and fired from her job at Y4 at the end of Moonshifted. Edie is having deep, dark, depressing times which no therapist could ever understand unless they found themselves in a similar situation. Things don't exactly get easy for Edie when her mother falls deathly ill, and she walks away from a boring job at a sleep study clinic to hopefully find something better.

I do not know how Cassie Alexander manages to serve up two installments in her wonderful Edie Spence series each year, but I am not one to look a gift horse in the mouth. Please to be continuing in this vein, Ms. Alexander! Because this series just gets better and better. And finishing SHAPESHIFTED knowing I still have Deadshifted to look forward to at the end of this year just fills me with both gratitude and excitement. I worry about my favorite urban fanta...more

What an improvement over the first two books in this series, mainly in the editing department, so the reading for me went much more smoothly, without all those stumbles. I like it when I don't need to reread sentences to try to make sense of them.

The flow and pacing were really good here and I found myself glued to the pages. It's a fast read with a more than a few gross scenes but hey, after book one, you've got to expect it.

Edie is no longer employed at County, being shunned by all paranormal...more

This is not a series where you can start any where, the books are not meant to be stand alone reads, so you will need to pick up the first two books in this series Nightshifted and Moonshifted before you read this book.

Nurse Edie Spence is back in Cassie Alexander's shifted series and Edie is looking for a new direction in her life, one that does not involve the paranormal:

Quick & Dirty: Wonderfully written and well-rounded novel set in a world where being supernatural isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

Opening Sentence: I’d lost fifteen pounds in six months.

The third installment of the Edie Spence urban fantasy series begins a little on the slow side but in the end was a wonderful and well-rounded book. This review will contain spoilers from the previous novels. I really recommend reading the first two novels in thi...more

This was my favorite so far, I think the character has settled into herself and the writer is hitting her stride.

Edie Spence has had a lot of things going on lately, but now with her shunning things has slowed down, become less hectic and certainly less dangerous. Still adjusting to her normal boring life miring through her nightshift job at a sleep clinic, she gets a bomb dropped in her lap: her mom has stage four breast cancer. Edie flails about a bit trying to find a way to get vamp blood to...more

My opinion:
I’m definitively warming at this series, it’s even better than that I Loved this book!. Edie is maturing, she is starting to see what is the most important without loosing herself..i could only appreciate her this time. She is suffering from her shunning and then worse she learn her mother is dying from cancer….i know first hand how for a child to learn one parent is dying is something terrifying…we don’t know how t...more

I 've been in a reading funk for so long now that I am overwhelmingly pleased to report "Shapeshifted'" helped to bring me out of it. In this installment nurse, Edie Spence has been working at a sleep deprivation clinic and hating every minute of it. Truthfully, she misses her quirky job on Y4 but now she is being shunned by the paranormal community. Her brother is back to his drug addiction and her mother informs her she has stage four inoperable cancer. Edie does not take the news well ; but,...more

Shapeshifted carries that action-packed, fast-paced punch I seek in my UF. After being shunned by the supernatural, Edie's life has taken a turn for the mundane. Monitoring patients at the sleep clinic is a far cry from her nights at the Y4 ward, spent treating the creatures that go bump in the night. Jarred awake by the cancer diagnosis of a loved one, Edie is spurred into action, prepared to do whatever it takes to overcome that filthy word, terminal.

Edie has little concern for her own fate, a...more

This is Cassie Alexander's third Edie Spence book, and it starts off with Edie being isolated from the supernatural community. (I definitely recommend reading the first two books!) Edie's mother is deathly ill, and only vampire blood can save her … but with the supernatural world shunning her, how will Edie collect it? In order to save her mother and become more of a part of her community, she begins her new job at a clinic situated in the middle of a vampire gang war.

I love Edie's character. Sh...more

OMG. I love this series! I enjoyed the first two books so much I was really looking forward to reading the third. And it didn't disappoint.

Edie Spence is a nurse and since she was shunned--for her own safety--from the supernatural community six months ago, her life has gone downhill. She lost her job at the County Hospital and has been working the night shift in a sleep apnea clinic. Everything gets worse when her mother tells her she's ill. :(

So when Edie applies for a job in a health clinic,...more
Fangs for the Fantasy
Edie is depressed. Since being shunned by the vampires and losing her job on Y4 she has settled into a much more routine, much safer existence as a nurse in a sleep clinic

It’s also dreadfully deadfully boring. She’s lonely, she’s lost purpose and she’s lost the advantages the Shadows could have given her

Which would be especially useful when her mother reveals she has terminal cancer. Only a miracle or magic could save her. Or vampire blood

Which means Edie needs a new way into the supernatural c...more

SHAPESHIFTED started out a bit depressing. Edie is miserable. She hates her job working at a sleep clinic. She is seeing a therapist who thinks she is mental. She has no friends anymore and then she gets the news that her mom is dying. She immediately goes to talk to the shadows. They refuse to help and send her out to find a myth.

Edie decided to take a job at a clinic in a bad part of town and things start shifting for her and people that she thought she would never see again started showing up...more

Another fantastic Edie Spence novel, I loved it! In this third book of the series, Edie is still being shunned by the supernaturals she used to know, banned from Y4 and working at a deadly dull job in a sleep clinic. When she receives the news that her mother is terminally ill, it shakes her world and the first thing she thinks of is asking the shadows for help. They demand she find Santa Muerte, a being that has escaped their clutches, in exchange for their assistance. Her attempts to accomplis...more

Edie has never had a easy life. She has always put everyone else's needs above her own and risked her life to save those that don't appreciate her. Now after nearly being killed while saving the lives of so many, she is being shunned by the supernatural world and nearly everyone she considers her friends.
Lonely and in a bad place, she receives news from her mother that forces her back into her old life among the monsters and struggling once again to maneuver through their dangerous world.

Cassie Alexander’s has quickly become one of my favorite urban fantasy authors. I have mountains of books… A few mountain ranges likely. :P And I always move her books to the top of my pile. I love her creative world building, the visceral way she writes emotions and the moments of near poetry in her descriptions. Shapeshifted is the third book in this series and it didn’t disappoint me.

I LOVE Edie. I connected with he...more

4.5/5
I truly think that Cassie Alexander grows significantly as an author with each book. Shapeshifted was an excellent read, full of twists, original ideas and a fresh outlook on some of the paranormal creepy-crawlies we think we know very well.

Thrown into a very normal life, shunned by all supernatural, Edie is bored and depressed working as a nurse in a sleep clinic. She feels like she lost direction and drive, and when she finds out that her mother has got cancer and only have few months lef...more

There is an angel watching over everyone, hopefully

Eden Spence lost one nursing job, quit another, and wound up working in a clinic that is in a questionable part of town. Oh and she has been shunned by the creatures of the night that she was trying to help, seriously this is how you repay my kindness.

With everything else going on now, she has a family worry that is pushing her to find a resolution to the issue with more than a prayer for good luck. There has to be someone human or not that can...more

My English review

After the end of the second volume, we can only look forward to read this new book. In fact Eddie was « exiled » from the supernatural world and everyone has been forbidden to approach her. You can say that now she can be free and finally live her life? But such a change is not without consequences and it is very difficult for her to get used to a world so common now. She had many friends everywhere and now she is alone, isolated from everyone she could find...more

MEH.

I still love Edie and I'm happy that it seems like there may be some stability in her personal life, but I'm still not seeing an endgame.

I need an endgame.

And I'm not a big fan of the get-out-of-supe-free card either. I get that this is my issue, and not everyone shares it, but I feel like there need to be boundaries, clear-cut rules, in Fantasy/UF books. If someone can wave a hand and turn a vampire back into a human, what's the point? It's too easy. And why would you want to go back to b...more

I found this to be a fun and quick read. Edie is feeling the brunt of her supernatural shunning especially now that her mom has inoperable cancer. I think Edie really grows as a character in this one as her quest for the quick fix brings her back into the supernatural. For the first time in a long time the romance angle wasn't so central as to get in the way and was actually kind of sweet.
Kat Klein
Edie is out of the paranormal community after being fired from County and her shunning by Anna. But without magical aid, forgetting that world isn't easy. And Edie is bored with normal.

Then her mother becomes deathly ill, and Edie can think of only one way to save her. But after being shunned, how can she get the aid she needs? The only clue, or hope she has is "Santa Muerta".

This book sees the return of Ti - Edie's zombie ex as well as several other favorites, and the introduction of some grea...more

Cassie Alexander just keeps getting better.

As with the previous two books, her writing here is easy and smooth, with plenty of everything I'm learning to expect from urban fantasy (although there's romance and a touch of sex, I'm hesitant to call these books paranormal romance). Shapeshifted is just as much fun as the previous two Edie Spence novels, but this third volume has better pacing and feels like a much more cohesive whole than Moonshifted. There's a solid mystery underlying this one, a...more

Is a person considered a trouble magnet if trouble doesn't come looking for them, but they keep running toward trouble? Edie Spence is a true nurse as she puts everyone, and everything's, well-being before her own. And it hasn't been easy. She's been shunned after saving the world and has to recreate her life, which she does by walking straight towards trouble...no passing GO...no collecting $200. What Cassie Alexander does in Shapeshifted is take our beloved heroine, Edie, and basically build a...more
