What other people are saying about Part 1 Shifters Alliance. . .
Changing Times: Shifters Alliance, by Shaun L Griffiths, changed me!
I've been an avid reader my whole life, and for 20 years I was a literacy teacher and presently writing a book about getting boys to read, but during all this time, I never read a fantasy book that gripped me; the first Harry Potter book is actually still sitting unfinished on my bookshelf.
And no matter how many fantasy books were recommended to me by my students (a lot!) as the one that will change my mind, I just never got sucked into any of those books like I do with realistic fiction, literary fiction, historical fiction, and even nonfiction. But I wasn't alone.
Every year at least half my students also weren't into fantasy, like me, but we kept reading hoping to find the one- the one book that made us feel more connected to this highly marketed genre we are suppose to love.
So when someone recommended Changing Times, to me, I begrudgingly started to read it like I do all suggested fantasy books.
Except, this time, I couldn't put it down. I read all night. Fell asleep with my Kindle. And then woke up really early to start reading again. In two days, I finished the book, so surprised at what just happened to me. Yes, there are all the fantasy elements that people who love fantasy expect, but for the non-fantasy reader, it goes deeper than that.
It's the characters and the real-life struggles that Mr. Griffths created and skillfully developed within the fantasy elements that grips and makes putting the book down impossible.
Mr. Griffths makes you care deeply about Sam, Kerri, LuLu, Jojo, and even Sonny, and what happens to them. The worlds they live in are complex and dangerous and intertwined, the enemies destructive, but it's the humanness and the universal truths this book represents that make it a stand out.
I highly recommend this book to all fantasy readers, but for non-fantasy readers this book is a MUST read! It will definitely open up the fantasy genre in a new and exciting way! And for reluctant middle school/high school readers, especially boys, this book will keep them turning page after page because of the fast-paced plot and strong, well developed characters.
Well done, Mr. Griffths!
