Five shapeshifter novels--one fascinating read! Hawksong Danica Shardae, an avian shapeshifter, will do anything in her power to stop the war that has raged between her people and the serpiente--even pretend to be in love with Zane Cobriana, the terrifying leader of her kind's greatest enemy, and accept him as her pair bond. But will Zane strike as swiftly and lethally as the cobra that is his second form? Snakecharm A surprising union has brought peace to the avians and serpiente. Soon a child will be born to carry on their royal lines. But Syfka, an ancient falcon, is claiming that one of her people is hidden in the avian and serpiente land. Is Syfka's lost falcon just a ruse to stir up controversy among them? Falcondance Nicias is a falcon, the son of two exiles from Ahnmik, and images of this distant island have always haunted his dreams. When his visions become more like reality, his parents send him back to the homeland--and a royal falcon--they've tried their best to forget. Wolfcry Oliza Shardae Cobriana is heir to Wyvern's Court, home of the avians and serpiente, whose war with each other ended just before Oliza was born. But hatred is slow to die, and Oliza's serpiente suitor is found beaten in avian land. How can she be expected to lead a unified society if her people still cannot live peacefully together? Wyvernhail Hai, daughter of a falcon mother and a deceased cobra father, is considered a mongrel by most, an ally by some, and a friend by few. When Hai's cousin abdicates the throne of Wyvern's Court, Hai has visions of destruction. Now she will do anything to protect her new home--even if it means betraying the very people who need her most.… (més)

I quite enjoyed this fantasy series set in a vague world where people can shapeshift to their alternate form. These are quite short - almost novellas - that I would characterize as YA but a mature YA. Overall quick, entertaining reads that kept me up reading late.

Hawksong
I picked up Hawksong on the street one day and raced through it in a day. A bitter and bloody feud has existed for generations among Hawks and Serpentine shapeshifters. Two new rulers make a daring compromise. I found the characters and world building had great depth given the brevity of the book.

Snakecharm
The second book follows the tenuous peace between the Hawks and Serpents as well as new threats from the outside. This was my least favorite of the series. I just felt the plot a little loose.

Falcondance
I quite liked the next installment where we get to visit the Falcon land which was very surreal seeming. The main character here was a little less rounded out than the previous though.

Wolfcry
A very strong follow up to Falcondance, I really liked Oliza’s character and her development even though she was a little oblivious at times though aren’t we all at that age (and perhaps all our ages). The various adventures in this book were also page turning and interesting.

Wyvernhail
The final book of the series was interesting - more of a fatalistic, the fate of the world is in your hands type story. The main character Hai was possibly my favorite of the series so far, and her disjointed movement between present and futures possible was handled very skillfully. ( )

The Shaeshifters is a great series to read. The amount of conflict and romance is well balanced in each novel. The first novel Hawksong does a great job catching the readers interest. As soon as I started reading the novel I never wanted to stop. ( )
