National bestselling author Sharon Shinn presents a passionate, heart-wrenching story of secrets and the lengths to which we'll go to protect those we love...

For her entire life, Melanie Landon has hidden the fact that her half sister, Ann, is a shape-shifter, determined to protect her from a world that simply wouldn't understand. When a man shows up asking about Ann--who has been missing for months--Melanie fears the worst, and with good reason. Freelance writer Brody Westerbrook knows about the existence of shape-shifters and intends to include Ann in the book he's writing.

While Melanie is immediately drawn to the stranger, she knows better than to trust him, and she denies his claim. But when Ann finally reappears, looking thin and sick, Melanie realizes exposure is the least of their worries. Protecting her sister has always been an enormous part of Melanie's life, but as Ann's health rapidly deteriorates, Melanie must come to grips with the fact that saving her may mean letting go...

Two strangers walk into Melanie's life. One is a reported hoping to get her sister to reveal herself as a shapechanger, the other her sister's new boyffriend who comes with distressing news. Her sister is sick, and Melanie's eyes open to the fact that she has noticed a decline for awhile. Melanie tries to balance her loneliness, her fear and her search for her sister all while trying to battle her attraction to Brody, the reporter, who might destroy them all. This story is quiet, with no grand revealing moments. It touches you and is closer to making the possibility of a living fairytale much more touchable than some of the other fantastic writers that I enjoy.

Absorbing, moving, and gracefully written. Highly recommended.
