When Rachel and her Dad moved to Scotland, she expected to experience some changes. A new house, a new school and new friends. There were some things though that she didn’t expect at all!

Although Rachel’s Mom – now deceased – was born in Scotland, she had lived in England all her life. Now, with a job offer too good to refuse, her Dad makes the decision to move to Scotland and Rachel finds herself far from London, her friends and everything that she knows. A miserable start to her first day of s

A fresh new voice in the YA market, J. Lilley spins a riveting tale of one girl's discovery of her roots, and a life she never knew she was destined to live.

With breathtaking descriptions and a wicked sense of humour, this book will have you riveted until you reach the end. Can't wait for the next in this series.

Although aimed at the "Young Adult" market I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed this book from start to finish. Hadn't read anything by J. Lilley before but am definitely looking forward to the next book in the series.

I don't go for rehashing the blurb in my reviews, nor spoiling it for other readers, but I would highly recommend this book to anyone that enjoys "shifter" books. It's an innocent read for any age group.

Loved it!!

Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

Sometimes fate steps in and takes you on a path much different than that in which you should have been on. In this case, Rachel’s mum and dad fell in love upsetting the course that was laid out for Rach’s mum.

What would you do if you found that you could talk to friends without saying a word? How cool would that be?

Rach’s dad takes a new job which has them moving from London to Scotland where

Poor Rach.

Once Rach meets Brios, the revelations concerning magic and shape shifters come very quickly. Rach has an incredible amount of information forced on her all at once. At

3.5 stars.
This is a really great shifter book for young adults. It's the first in a series.
Basically an up and coming 17 year old "leader" meets his 15 year old half human "one." It's a completely new world for Rach but that's okay because Brois wants to be her friend and teach her all there is to know about being a leopard shifter.

I'm looking forward to seeing how the story progresses.

Living and writing in the Trossachs, in Scotland, where my Y A Shalean Moon Series is set.

I'm lucky, I have inspiration on my doorstep, and visitors galore. Not all are welcome--someone tell the cats, I really don't need field mice as guests!
