STORY-LINE SHIFTER’S UNIVERSITY BY K. R. THOMPSON:
Claire Pratten is not a typical teenager. She has a secret she has kept and revealed to no one. When Claire’s frightened, she becomes something other than human teenager Claire. Her foster home has become a nightmare of abuse, and it’s becoming harder to hide her other self.
Logan Fairmont, a dragon shifter, searches Roanoke and Salem for other shifters who are on the verge of revealing their nature to humans. Finding Claire, he knows she needs the help of Imperium University; where she can learn to control her other self. However, it’s not as simple as it seems because Claire is more than just another shifter. My paranormal book reviews of Shifter’s University follows.
CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
K. R. Thompson‘s shifter world is original and unique. A university where shifters attend classes next to unsuspecting humans as they learn to control their other self. It’s also a place of werewolves, eves, witches, dragons, and a multitude of other magical shifters. Thompson filled this story with magic, greed, hatred, prejudice, and attraction. Shifters share the same ugly traits as humans, with one exception, the humans in Shifter’s University want the shifters dead. Known as the Dark Watch, they are willing to kill to achieve their goals.
Although Logan, as a dragon should have been a loner, Thompson instilled into him caring and protectiveness for Claire. Their attraction’s palpable. Having led a life of abuse, Claire’s insecure, as well as, frightened when she discovers she’s much more than thought. She’s something which scares other shifters and would be a death sentence if known.
Every good story must have a villain, and Victor filled the bill in Shifter’s University. A shifter who is genuinely evil, conniving, and self-centered; he has the nature of his other self, a snake. I knew I had not seen the last of Victor after his dastardly deeds.
Placing the shifters in a university to learn and control their other self is an excellent stroke by Thompson. Giving the shifters antagonists in the form of the Dark Watch deepened the storyline. Thompson held the reasons for the Dark Watch‘s attacks close to her chest; revealing the why at the last possible moment. What a surprise the readers has coming! It’s evident from the quality of this story, K. R. Thompson has a vivid imagination, as well as, the ability to tell an entertaining story.
K. R. Thompson‘s writing flows well, and her characters are well-developed. I found the pace fast and steady with an intriguing storyline. Thompson brought the plot threads together to form a cohesive, entertaining story. Her scenes transition smoothly, and with vivid descriptions, I could see each scene and character in my mind’s eye, and what characters K. R. Thompson created! Thompson left an open-ended finale assuring we will see more of the shifters in future books. Shifter’s University‘s a clean book suitable for anyone who enjoys a magical world of shifters and humans. I would not hesitate to buy this book for myself or a friend.
