Mistwood by Leah Cypess

Mistwood by Leah Cypess 5 of 5 stars.
To be released by HarperTeen May 2010.

Isabel is a shape-shifter. She knows--deep in her soul--that she exists only to protect the king. But she can't remember how. Thrust into the dangerous world of the court, Isabel must uncover her past, separate her heart's truth from her magic's legend, and, above all, keep the unbearably handsome new king safe. Even if protecting him means disaster for her. (From book)

Mistwood is the kind of story that takes your breath away. Original, intense, and supernaturally capable of showing human emotions for what they are, it is a story to remember. I couldn't help but fall in love with the characters. Rokan and his sister Clarisse above the others. Leah Cypess is an amazing author who brilliantly kept me in suspense from the first page all the way to the last. Isabel was such an interesting character. She was harsh and at the same time had an innocence to her that seemed almost impossible. This is a thoroughly engrossing story that I promise any fantasy lover, will cherish.

For fans of: Kristen Cashore, Graceling, Prophecy of the Sisters, Cry of the Icemark
