Beauty And The Shapeshifter (Evil Rising, #5). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Beauty and the Shapeshifter by Melody Raven

My rating: 5 of 5 stars.

When Ella’s father is missing, she finds him held captive by a dangerous and devastatingly handsome a man, who gives her one choice: Her father may go free, but she must stay with him–for good.  

There is more to Lucian than what Ella initially sees. He isn’t just a crazed kidnapper wrapped into irresistible eye candy. Heading a group of shape shifters who live as humans by day and hideous monsters by night, Lucian is desperate to uncover why his kind hasn’t been reproduced in centuries. Determined to solve this mystery, Lucian sees Ella as an answer. Together, they begin to discover the truth–a truth that just might be what Lucian’s been afraid of all along.  

But their days together are numbered. Lucian’s enemies will stop at nothing to destroy him–and anything he loves. Lucian and Ella refuse to give up that easily. Will beauty and love prevail, taming the beast once and for all?

Beauty And The Shapeshifter

Human by day, Monster by Night!
This book Can be read as a stand-alone.

I really liked this book, it was a good variation on the standard shifter themes. In this story the main characters are called Myotis which is a type of bat, though they don’t really shift into bats. They are human by day and at night they shift into their alternate form which has grey leathery skin, grey or black lips, fangs, they are stronger and faster than Vampires and can teleport. It is painful for them to stay in human form at night but it is possible.

Also the species is dying because they haven’t been able to breed in a long time, though they live for hundreds of years. Lucien is the leader and he kidnapped Ella’s father to help with the breeding problem but the father wouldn’t give up any information, so when Ella shows up looking for him, it seems she might be the key to helping them and Lucian offers to let her father go if she stays in his place.

The story is good, not only from the breeding standpoint, but there is a war between Vampires invading from another world, which is getting closer and that is getting in between the couple.
