I really hate that this book equates good with disinterested. I couldn't get past that, and then, to hammer in the blurb on the back's "young people are going to enjoy every bit as much as The Golden Compass," on page 138, "There was a certain arrogance about the bird's demeanor as he hung there above them all, passing his benevolent eyes from one to another, as distant as a priest handing out communion."

There are too many places to begin attacking that analogy. My husband is a priest, and he ta

This is book 2 of the Switchers series (book 1 is Switchers). Tess is fourteen and only has one year to decide what she wants to be forever. At the age of 15, she can no longer switch shape at will. Her old switcher friend, Kevin reappears as a phoenix and Tess thinks it would be cool to be a phoenix forever, as well. Then she meets another switcher, Martin, who is a vampire and she's conflicted.

In a juvenile way this is an interesting series. Definitely something the younger generations would e
The second book in the Switchers trilogy, this book begins a few months after the first one ended. Tess is glad Kevin survived by turning himself into a phoenix, but she's having second thoughts about his new form when he's captured by the zoo and sold to a private collector. With only a week before he's shipped to America, she has to think of a way to save him, fast. But Martin, a new Switcher she's discovered, is complicating her life. Martin wants her to become a vampire like him, or he'll ma ...more

Recommended to Relyn by: I loved the book Switchers
I just love libraries! I really wanted to read this hard-to-find book, so I did an interlibrary loan request. My library borrowed it from a library 5 hours away and had it sent to me. For free! God bless public libraries!

Anyway. I read the first book in this series called Switchers many years ago. I recently read it again and enjoyed it just as much. I looked to see what else Kate Thompson had written and found this sequel. To be honest, I found myself enjoying the book and then ann

This is the second book in the series, and I have to admit I did not like it as much as the first one. But it was good all the same.

It follows the story of Tess as she tries to decide which animal she will choose forever, because at 15 you lose the ability to shift into any animal, you have to choose just one. Kevin chooses a phoenix, which Tess considers, but then she meets Martin, whose forever shape is a vampire. And she has a hard time deciding what she will choose when her time comes.

Great book for young readers who like fantasy/paranormal that want something other than vampires or werewolves. There are few shape shifter books out there for children. Its short but does not feel like it was rushed in any way
Less compelling and engrossing and (dare I say it w.r.t YA fantasy ...) credible than the first Switchers, but still very enjoyable. I read it in a single sitting, so I must have liked it!

Powerful female main character that has to make some difficult decisions. Interesting read, introduction of vampire element, but only just
