Guest Review: Shapeshifter by Hannah L. Corrie

[M/M, erotic, urban fantasy, shapeshifters, explicit language]
Kelaste DeLargo-Lagrada is a cat-shapeshifter with no knowledge as to how he came to be this way and a bleak existence as the miserable, unwanted, drug-addicted son of one of the richest men in all of Babylon City. When he meets Noom- mercenary extraordinaire and bad person to the boot- in the worst possible circumstances, all his mundane problems dissipate beneath the sudden realization that someone out there wants him dead. Although narcissistic Noom is supposed to kill Kel, the violent mercenary is confronted with a strange pull towards waifish, skittish Kelaste and can't bring himself to pull the trigger. This puts him in a bind: not only does he not know who might want to kill Kel, but there is also a time limit on the contract. If Noom wants to save his strange new friend, he himself will become a target, something he managed to avoid in the past.
His growing attraction to his captive isn’t the only chink in Noom’s plan, though. Noom is confronted with a much bigger problem: The man he desires isn't human and will probably cost him his life. Already, other assassins have picked up the call to arms, closing in on them and tightening the proverbial noose around Noom’s neck. With time running out, Noom has to decide; is he really willing to risk his life?

Reviewer: Shee Reader

There is lots of angst and drama in this story, but there is a charming love story in there too. Once Noon and Kelaste team up the sense of hunter and hunted escalates and the story is gripping. The world building was superb and there were so very many characters to hate! The dialogue is super sharp and the engagement between the characters is charming. There are a lot of bad people in the story, but the HFN ticked my required boxes. I liked that there was enough left unanswered that I could see a future for Noon and Kel.

Hannah L Corrie was a new-to-me author and I would recommend this read if you like a slightly darker, dangerous and sexy story.

I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
