Penabout this book: After reading the "Twilight" series, I must say I was impressed. But I was more impressed with the shapeshifting aspect of the book than the vampire aspect.
I couldn't help but wonder, though, why most books about shapeshifting had people changing into wolves? Where were the books where people changed into cats?
So, I wrote one.
There are numerous "coming of age" stories available and this is another one. But the coming of age for Harlie Castleberry is a little unique.
Set in the quiet mountain town of Cleveland, Georgia, it's a story of an entire family of shapeshifters.
For generations, the Baylors and the Castleberrys have changed into mountain lions to protect the citizens of this small town from an evil unknown to them.
Harlie Castleberry is unaware she has this capability. At fourteen, she just lost her father in a construction accident and now must live with her estranged mother. Harlie is a little angry at the world right now.
She mellows as events unfold that teach her of her family's gift and her mother's past.
Cousin Tomahawk Billy - part Cherokee - enters the picture and teaches Harlie what she needs to know to defeat the entity which has terrorized the north Georgia mountains for centuries.
A little off-the-beaten path, Return Me offers a different perspective on shapeshifting, as well as pays tribute to my own Cherokee heritage.
