Raised in a remote farming community, Tom Fletcher knows little of his Shifter heritage and less about the dangerous lives that others of his kind lead in the city of Riverside. For Tom the big city is a daydream of opening nights and bright theater lights.But when Tom meets Cloud Coldmoon-infamous and handsome heir to a criminal syndicate- everything changes. Suddenly suspected of murder, Tom must flee to the only city where his kind are common.Filled with shapeshifters, con men, mobsters and ruled by the vengeful Coldmoon Family, Riverside is as perilous as it is alluring. Tom seeks refuge in the Turnskin Theatre, where his shape-changing skills can be put to good use on and off the stage.Here he has a chance to fulfill his dreams of stardom and romance, but only if he can stay one step ahead of police and criminals alike, otherwise the next shape he takes could be his last.

Read from the Book

Tom hiked along the gravel shoulder of a two-lane highway, hoping for a ride. Midnight came and went. The air grew cold and the crickets got tired of chirping. Near the county line, drawn by the sight of approaching head- lights, he turned and stuck out his thumb. The driver slowed down, probably checking him out. Tom stood in the blinding glare of the headlights, wondering what part of him the driver noticed first. His red backpack? His torn jeans? Or maybe it was Tom's black skin with its thin layer of velvety hair? His yellow Shifter eyes? Tom smiled and waved, hoping the driver would still stop and offer him a ride but internally despairing. He'd have had a better chance with a pickup than a private car. The moment of uncertainty elongated as the car inched closer. Massive irrigation sprinklers activated in the cornfields to Tom's right, and the summer air grew heavy and damp. Tom stepped up and saw, with a zing of fear, that the low sedan was actually a police cruiser. Tom's skin prickled and his hair stood on end. Officer Mayle had told Tom straight out that if he found Tom hitch- hiking one more time, he'd take him to jail. Tom's friend Shorty had been arrested by Officer Mayle once. He'd need- ed sixteen stitches. And Shorty was even a Skin. How many stitches would a Shifter need?
