I received a free copy from the author and voluntarily reviewed it. I really enjoyed book 1 in this series and when I received a copy of this one I started it as soon as I could. Shift of destiny is just as good as book 1 and I was quickly pulled back into this world filled with shifters and other paranormal creatures. I am not sure what is about the way this author writes her books, but they manage to hook me every time.
Her writing style really works for me. And I love this series so far! Shift I received a free copy from the author and voluntarily reviewed it. Shift of destiny follows the story of Moira and Chance. Both have been on the move for a long time. Moira is running from someone who wants to own her for her psychic gift, but Moira doesn't believe in magic and thinks her magic is actually some lucky guesses. Chance has been looking for his mate, never staying anywhere long.
When they meet each other in Kotoyeesinay the sparks fly and their immediately attraction to one another quickly blazes into more. The main plot line is focused on their romance and the dangerous man who is after Moira. There is some danger and action involved there before things get resolved. I have to admit that the way something was resolved at the end seemed a bit too easy, but I guess the magic made it all look real.
This gives us another piece of information of the bad type of people who inhabit this world and what they do. I liked both main characters. Moira has done a lot of different jobs and I liked how her knowledge of the varied things she learned come in handy multiple times. She has learned to trust no one, be on her guard and move at the first sign of trouble. She never had the time to stay in one place for long. She knows how to take care of herself, but also doesn't push help away when it came her way, which was a great combination or characteristics. It was interesting how she didn't believe in magic and explained the magical things away with mundane explanations.
But when Chance opens her eyes to what is really around them, she slowly dared to believe in her magic. The change in her was done believable and realistic, which is so hard to achieve in paranormal books. And I loved her unique brand of magic, it was so interesting and unique. Chance has left his family as his parents their packs didn't know what to do with his unique beast. He always has been alone and traveling a lot. He is handy and likes to build things, which was fun to read about.
But in Kotoyeesinay there is no one who needs his type of work, so he plans to move onward, but then he meets Moira. He was protective of Moira, but also admired and appreciates her expertise and opinion, which I liked. I also liked how he wanted to be truthful with her and at the same time tried to tell her things bit by bit so as not to overwhelm her.
The romance in this book develops quickly and it doesn't take much time before they share their first kiss and then more. I really liked these two as a couple, but wouldn't have minded a few more getting to know each other scenes before they reached the I love you stage.

But at the same time they fit so well together and work so well together, it's hard to really let that bother me. They really made for a great couple.

There also is a fun appearance of the daughter from the couple of book 1. As there is a lot of years between the two books, the daughter of the couple from book 1 is now an adult and she plays a role later in this book where she explains some things to Moira. It was fun to have the book tie in with book 1 on that point. And ofcourse the town and some of the side characters that were part of book 1 also play a role here as well. I wish some of the side characters would get their own story as there are some great side characters.
I loved returning to this world Carol Van Natta has created. There are shifters, ice age shifters and a lot of other paranormal creatures. In this book a lot of the story takes place in and around Kotoyeesinay and I enjoyed spending more time in this quirky magical town. In the first book they only arrive in the town pretty late in the book, so it as fun to have this book take place here for the most part. There is more we learn about the ice age shifters as well as other paranormal creatures and magic.
To summarize: I loved returning to this world with ice age shifters that Carol Van Natta has created. I had so much fun reading Shift of Destiny and I just wanted to keep reading and figure out what would happen next. Moira and Chance are both likeable characters and I liked how realistic they felt.
They both haven't had the easiest life, but things sure go better once they meet each other. I liked them together, although the romance did develop a bit fast. They are a great team and I liked how they dealt with the challenges on their way together. I really liked seeing Moira go from not believing in magic to slowly accepting that part of herself, the change felt very realistic and believable which is rare to find in a paranormal book.
I liked learning more about this world, the shifters and the magical town of Kotoyeesinsay and I finally know how to pronounce it! I really enjoyed this book and the end gives a small hint of what I think will be the focus of the next book! Jun 24, Eva Millien rated it it was amazing.
I just visited a whole town of wonderful people and full of magic. Two of these wonderful people were Moira and Chance who are strong and easily connected to which made me want to get to know them better and boy did I get to know them. Both of them has a bit of wanderlust inside them out of necessity which it makes it hard to get to know people and even more, it makes it hard for them to get to know themselves so when their chemistry starts sparks flying and feelings of settling down, they are a I just visited a whole town of wonderful people and full of magic.
Both of them has a bit of wanderlust inside them out of necessity which it makes it hard to get to know people and even more, it makes it hard for them to get to know themselves so when their chemistry starts sparks flying and feelings of settling down, they are a taken aback a bit but find that they really want to explore the attraction. So the romance between is quite sweet and full of passion but this couple has a ways to go to reach their happily ever after.
I am definitely looking forward to visiting again so I get to know more of these delightfully charming characters and their fascinating town. Nov 23, Barbara rated it it was amazing. Moira Graham is on the run once again from an obsessive rich man who wants to own her. When her car breaks down in the magical town of Kotoyeesinay, Wyoming, her plan is to find a temporary job to make enough money to fix her car and then move on.
Then she runs into Chance McKennie, a prehistoric shifter and skilled carpenter who has had trouble staying in one place as well. Moira has never believed in magic, but this town might just change her mind. I loved the two main characters and the inventive way they and the townspeople took care of the threat of the crazy billionaire and his mercenary minions. I look forward to more stories set in this quirky, magical town. Jun 26, Annette Drewett rated it it was amazing. Moira and Chance are strong characters, with clear-cut ethics and the desire to help others.
Their journey to romance is fraught with trouble, but together they can overcome anything. I love the secondary characters as well, the various magical creatures are awesome. I would recommend this story to paranormal lovers everywhere. I received an ARC copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.
As usual from CVN, likable characters, exciting action, and good writing. As usual for me with a short book, especially a shifters-instantly-recognize-their-mates PNR, I wished it had been a little slowed down particularly the rush to smexy stuff, again using language a little blunt for me and fleshed out, but I definitely did enjoy it, just not quite enough to round up to a Goodreads 4. Back in Kotoyeesinay, we once again meet an intriguing mix of races including some less-common choices an As usual from CVN, likable characters, exciting action, and good writing.
Back in Kotoyeesinay, we once again meet an intriguing mix of races including some less-common choices and personalities, whom I wish we got to see more of. The heroine goes pretty quickly from fearing she's having hallucinations from a brain tumor, to practicing using the magic she never knew she had, but at least the blind-to-what's-right-before-her-eyes phase wasn't dragged out. Was book 1 set back in time a bit, and I just forgot, or are we just supposed to "go with it," considering it "book time" the way a sitcom baby is walking and talking when the next TV season starts, though any siblings look the same?
It's not copying, though, since the implications are different, and this series' other lead-character shifters are other "extinct" primordial species'. The editing is excellent. I only caught one minor absolute typo diary for dairy , one which turned out to be a variant spelling dowse for douse , and one which is common in colloquial speech, which is where it occurred who for whom.

Moira meets Chance on her first night, and the shifter handyman sees her to the place she will be staying. The book follows their blossoming romance and the attempts by more than one person to capture her. I enjoyed the quirky little town that Moira ended up in. In fact, I wish more time was spent there as it was such a fun place to hang out with all the different types of magical beings present. I thought Chance was a good hero. I was surprised at the level of profanity and crude words in this book, especially as the book went on.
I just personally find this off-putting and distracting from a story. The book was mostly well edited, but I did find one peculiar fault, given that it was professionally edited— commas were used with compound predicates verb phrases , and they don't need to be. If you enjoy shifter romance, you will most likely enjoy this book with a well-imagined world and well-drawn and sympathetic characters. I received a free copy of this book, but that did not affect my review. Nov 09, Diana Lavaughn rated it really liked it.

Moira is on the run from an obsessed millionaire when her car breaks down in a magical town. Chane McKennie, a wandering carpenter who happens to a shift runs into her at her time of need realises that not only is the woman more than she seems, she is his mate. I enjoyed this sweet-ish, steamy-ish, shifter, paranormal romance.
The hero was sweet and not overbearing, the heroine was special and had spark without that overdone 'spunky' feeling. The story was done well, even if it isn't anything extraordinary. This is a trip into something familiar and still special. The villains aren't as well drawn as they could be, but they certainly are persistence. Side-characters were interesting and special and inclusive.
Heart Of Destiny:
Fun, sweet-ish with a couple of stamy-ish sex scenes and a new kind of shifter.

Final Rating: 5 Stars Aug 19, Rachel rated it it was amazing. This book was so much fun to read! I really enjoyed seeing a bit more of the town of Kotoyeesinay and its different inhabitants. I loved reading about Chance and Moira. As individuals, they both had a bit of akwardness and spunk that totally endeared them to me.
Moira's grit and way to stay positive with how her life has been the past 3 years was just amazing. I really liked how Chance got her and tried to make sure he understood where she was coming from. The two together was perfect. The endin This book was so much fun to read! The ending of the story resolution for Moira-and I'll leave it at that so as not to add a spoiler! It kept true to the characters and really fit with the story.

Moira has been running for three years then she arrives in Kotoyeesinay and meets shifter Chance. Because this book is for those who recognize that anything worth having is worth working for. Ultimately, this book is for those who already know — or those who are willing to learn — that the only thing that truly stands between the person they are and the person they want to be is themselves. If this sounds like you — or like someone you want to be — then this book will likely be well worth your time and investment.
That is one of my goals in writing this book. I truly want this book to change your life for the better. Each piece is written to be as potent as possible. Every sentence, paragraph, and lesson is as concise as I was able to make it given my understanding of the lesson being shared at the time and my current skill in writing it. Also, this is not a book that you read once, get pumped up about its contents, and then forget about.
Lessons Learned from the Path Less Traveled is a book designed to be dipped into repeatedly over time — years, even. And I hope that you will.
