MistwoodPublisher:by Greenwillow Books/HarperColins

Published:April 27th 2010 

Age Group:Young Adult

Number of pages:304 pages


 The Shifter is an immortal creature bound by an ancient spell to protect the kings of

Samorna. When the realm is peaceful, she retreats to the Mistwod.

But when she is needed she always comes.

Isabel remembers nothing. 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, to

wind, to mist. He needs her lethal speed and 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


Now Isabel faces a choice that threatens her loyalty, her heart . . . and everything she

thought she knew.

Of course as I first decided to read this book for the 2010 Debut's author challenge, I thought

this book would be pretty good-just by looking at the cover and reading the description.

When I finally got a chance to go to the library, I was so excited! The moment I got my hands

on the book, iI read and read and read. And about three hours later, I finished the whole

entire book-and I was so surprised! Leah Cypess added in the perfect amount of suspense,

romance, magic, dialogue, and detail. I was so stunned that the book was already over, and

I'd love it if Leah Cypess wrote a sequel-not all stories have to end. This book was better

then just good-it was amazing! The cover was beautiful and mystical, The description

perfect, the characters well developed. Everything about this book intrigued me. I just

couldn't beleive it had ended already! I loved the idea of the shifter, and it just made

Mistwood become one of the TOP BOOKS OF 2010! Congrats, Leah Cypess! I definetely

reccomend this book to girls who love fantasy and romance, as well as science-fiction! This

book was ultimately wonderful!

(Remember, if you don't understand why I use animals for rating, please visit my oldest post, Blue Fingers by Cheryl Aylward Whitesel.)
 I didn't see any point just writing the same thing over and over. Here's the rating!
