    One thought on “Shifting Selves”

    1. Another fantastic read. I'm really loving this series!Despite real world time constraints weighing me down at the moment, the second I spotted the familiar cover art design for this series and realised review copies for SHIFTING SELVES were out, I picked up my copy without a single hesitation, in the sure and safe knowledge that I would be in for another great, magic-filled read. And I'm so glad I did, because I was right!That level of certainty I felt—despite having only read one other book f [...]

    2. LOVED. Fantastic storytelling, amazing characters, winning dialogue, and not a single dull moment the entire time I was reading. While I still want more romance (I'm greedy that way) I am more than pleased with the relationship progress Aidan & Mac made in this book. VERY excited to see what happens for them in book 3, especially after that surprising-thing-I-can't-mention-because-it's-too-spoilery! If you are an urban fantasy fan. you simply MUST read this series. Great, great stuff :)

    3. Shifting Selves Mia MarshallI received this from the author in return for an honest review. I don't gush and give false praise – I don't believe that helps readers or authors so what you read is what I truly feel about a book. I love books with romance and paranormal elements and there's any number about vampires and shape shifters but far fewer involve people with talents derived from the Classical Elements – air, fire, water, earth. I read first in a popular series some years back that I d [...]

    4. Ok. I would just like to say that Mia Marshall simply cannot write books fast enough. To me, she is quickly joining the shelf with Lisa and Patricia as an author whose works provide me refuge to escape the trials of my life and immerse myself into another world with the company of characters I love and hate to leave. And, I dream about the characters and their worlds. They make me happy. Trust me when I say this is not an easy shelf to which to gain access and arriving here gets you a crazy, wha [...]

    5. Mia, I hope you're writing fast. I'm so ready for the next book!!!Wonderful continuance of Broken Elements. I can't wait to see where Aidan and Mac's relationship goes. I think my favorite section of the book was the last page. Don't get me wrong, I loved the rest of the book too, but I am very much looking forward to the developments of Aidan and Mac. (view spoiler)[ I am especially curious about the changes that were created in Mac when she brought him back to life.(hide spoiler)]This story wa [...]

    6. Shifting Selves (Elementals #2) by Mia Marshall was better than I expected, and that is saying a lot because I loved the first book in this series. In this book the reader learns more about the secretive shifting community. The gang is back, even the FBI agents that where in the first story are back for the second story. I really enjoy paranormal stories that are written like they could be real. The characters have depth, emotions, good days and bad days, as well as personal problems. These char [...]

    7. Book 1 and 2 reviewed togetherI thought I would review both of these books together as I read them one right after another. Broken Elements begins with an introduction to the main characters - Aidan and Sera although the story is told from Aidan's perspective. Both Aidan and Sera are elementals with the ability to control water and fire, respectively. Aidan has been a virtual recluse for the last decade and Sera has hunt her down in order to tell her one of their best friends has been murdered. [...]

    8. I received this book for free from the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Let us add this series to my existing list of “Fantasy series that I really have to follow because I love them so much”! The second book of the Elements series managed to pull down another five stars from me. At the end of the last book, I wanted to learn more about shifters like Mac and Simon, and to see more character development [...]

    9. Title: Shifting SelvesSeries: Elements Book 2Author: Mia MarshallGenre: ParanormalAidan Brook’s world was shattered when the actions of a brutal murderer revealed long-buried secrets about her past–secrets even she didn’t know. A powerful elemental, Aidan discovered she possesses the wrong kind of magic. It’s a secret that could cost her sanity—or even her life.What she needs is some peace and quiet. What she gets is a phone call from a division of the FBI so secret it doesn’t even h [...]

    10. I'm giddy. Giddy, I tells ya! I didn't think Mia Marshall could top the first book in her Elements series,Broken Elements, but not only has she topped it, she's knocked the damn thing outa the park! I feel like copying'n'pasting everything I gushed about the first book here, because everything about the first one I loved, I double love in this one.Shifting Selves opens up about a month after the first one. The Gang's all together still - Aidan & Sera, Simon, Vivian & Mac. Plus Carmichael [...]

    11. 4.5/5 StarsShifting Selves is the second book in the Element series. You will probably need to read book 1, Broken Elements, to stay up to speed with everything. The author does provide small recaps at the beginning of the novel if you do want to dive straight into this one, but I would recommend reading the first book prior to this one. Please note that the rest of this review may contain spoilers for the first book. The story focuses on shifter disappearances around Lake Tahoe, and yet again, [...]

    12. I was lucky enough to receive an advance reading copy through NetGalley and Match Books Press, in exchange for an honest review. Thank you, once again, for allowing me the privilege and pleasure of adding my voice to the reviewers chorus. Shifting Selves is a very solid follow-up to Broken Elements (Elements #1). Mia Marshall fleshes out the bones of the world she created in the first book, adding depth and substance to it as Elementals and shape-shifters strive to live in parallel with those of [...]

    13. Shifting Selves was an excellent follow up to Broken Elements. I am totally hooked on this series and eagerly anticipating the third book in the series! The main character, Aidan Brook, has been thrown on an emotional rollercoaster. A former close friend turned out to be a killer and psychopath. Her magic is (potentially) making her crazy. The federal agents are on her heels to solve a crazy mystery. And possibly worst of all, the romantic tension with a certain shifter is driving her up a wall. [...]

    14. (I got this book from NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.)I read the first installment to this series a few months ago, and enjoyed this second one just as much, although I think I'd have liked to see more development in some places.This time, Aidan and Sera, as newly employed by the FBI, are caught into a series of kidnappings involving shifters, but whose consequences could affect elementals as well, in more than one way. Aidan is also faced with the gloomy prospect of suffering from [...]

    15. Shifting Selves is a very solid follow-up to Broken Elements (Elements #1). Mia Marshall expands on the interesting world she has created made up of beings of Elemental Magic and shape-shifters. In Broken Elements a group of the shifters and elementals, traditional enemies, team up to find and kill an elemental serial killer. In the course of the search, Aidan Brook discovers that she is not half-human as she has always thought, but full-blooded. Worse, she wields two opposing powers, and if she [...]

    16. I think Marshall is a slowly rising 'author of interest' on the supernatural book horizon.The characters are solid, the story flows well and the plots have a subtle understatement. The author has a very witty sense of humour, which is evident in the seamless banter between the characters, especially Sera and Aidan.This is the second book in the series, which can be read as a stand-alone novel but I would recommend reading Broken Elements (Elements, Book 1) to understand who and what Aidan actual [...]

    17. I thoroughly enjoyed book one and was totally stoked that book 2 is out. Potential spoilers aheadIn book one, we were introduced to the main cast and the supporting characters. In Book 2, Aidan (the lead) character and power is further developed and a lesser focus on the rest of the gang. But instead, we do learn more about shifters (I guess the title itself should have been a hint as well)). I love the new shifters (otters are cool) and also how different animal shifters interact and behave. As [...]

    18. full review at BookDrugThese books are not great literature, but I’m still a fan of the series.I read and reviewed the first book in the series, Broken Elements, a little while ago and I believe my review was along the lines of it being an enjoyable piece of fiction for its genre.My feelings on it haven’t changed. It’s not anything groundbreaking, and Marshall hasn’t taken it into that territory with book two. Instead, she’s built on what she created in book one and expanded it, adding [...]

    19. This is the second book in the Elements Series. I originally received the first book, Broken Elements, to review and I really enjoyed the story. This book was no exception. It was wonderful. I searched down this book to read because I enjoyed the first one so much.Aidan finds herself, along with her friends, trying to put their lives back together and wonder how to move forward. This series has thus far revolves around elementals and shape shifters. Mia's writing involving how the elements use a [...]

    20. This was awesome - wisecracking, clever, high stakes without being violent or gory and a nice slow burn romance. Also, the author pulled off the trick of focussing on the main character without excluding the rest of the group, or having them there only in service of the main character. Simon is still and forever my favourite. Can't wait for more. (I highly recommend starting with the first in the series, Broken Elements, before reading this one, if you haven't already. I don't think it would be [...]

    21. Book 2 of this series was not a disappointment. The author has a clear vision for her characters, how they will continue to develop, and where she wants to take them. Marshall is able to integrate serious plot lines with snarky humor, introduce new characters and take you to places you wouldn't expect. I hope Marshall continues this wonderful series with more adventures of Aidan and Sera!

    22. Totally loving this series! The heroine isn't perfect and knows it. She could go insane at anytime. Her friends are becoming her family and she's scared she'll lose them. Everything about this series is awesome! Read it!

    23. After really enjoying Broken Elements, I was surprised to find I couldn't get into Shifting Selves. I read through to the end, but it was a disjointed story for me. Lots of good stuff but I couldn't engage. That could have been my life being busy as I read.

    24. I am really loving this series. I love the easy humorous banter between Aiden and Sera. The concept of this story is intriguing. The relationship between the group of friends is believable and endearing. Time to read the next book!!

    25. This was a fun, fast read with a great mystery. And I'm really digging the world with the elementals and the shifters.

    26. Once again, toward the end there I couldn't read fast enough to get to the next part and wished I could just devour the book and know everything at once.

    27. Fabulous series! I am loving the character development and the twists and turns of this series. Can't wait for the next book!

    28. --Actual rating 4.5 SkullsUgh, these books are so, SO good and the whodunit it gets me every single time. Kudos Mia! On to book #3. Happily! :) -Full review to come

    29. This book was just as good as the second one! It was a great mix of all the best Genres. I loved it a lot and would also read this book a million times!
