The Shape-Changer’s Wife by Sharon Shinn

27 Sep

Aubrey was a student of the fine art of wizardry who traveled in serach of the greatest master of all, the gifted shape-changer Glyrenden. But there was one discovery he never expected, a mystery he risked everything to solve. Her name was Lilith. Who was this woman with startling eyes and no emotions?

A fairly quick pace unlike a typical fantasy. There is not a lot of detail of setting to slow the pace down. Characters are key to the book-the plot is secondary. The focus of the storyline is on the people in the story and what happens in their lives. Interior and psychological.

Author lives in St. Louis. Book won the William Crawford Award for achievement in Fantasy and the Best first novel of the year award by Locus. 1995, 215 pages.
