    This is a quirky,fun, an sweet shifter novella geared towards older teens and adults. I'd definitely think this would be a great read for teen boys because of the main character being a sixteen year old. Cody is kinda like the silly little brother that's still transitioning in his teen years. He knows he's not the best looking guy but as a wolf he's so much more, which he thrives on. Cody does something both brave and stupid which gets him killed luckily for him though he get's a second chance by living in The Realms. However, he will never age so he views that as a bummer. His new life takes a quick turn from bearable to awesome when he meets a certain lady. Cody will do anything to protect her but it might turn out to be him who needs the help. I'd recommend this book to paranormal, and possibly scifi readers who like a cute quick story. I received this book from StoryCartel in exchange for an honest review.

    A light quick read, Shifting Realms is a nice taster of what could be within the Twin Cities Series. Cody is a werewolf but not like you see in the movies. Here's the thing, he knows he's a werewolf but when you die in the real world, you can end up in the Realms. Cody ends up here because of an impulsive reaction to a heinous crime. The ideas within the Realms and the concepts have vampires, werewolves and even fire demons, which definitely leaves you wanting more. The concept is there and the possibilities are endless, but this short read, although satisfying, left me wanting a lot more. Cody is likable, the concepts and perspectives are unique, and I can't help but wonder how this would read with an extra 50-100 pages. Snyder knows how to bring a great idea forth and the first person perspective works well to describe the world in the terms of a werewolf. This is the second book I've read by Snyder and I'm working on my third. Quick refreshing reads so far and leave a reader wanting more, so here's to much more from her.

    This is a short read, but as part of a series, that is understandable. Welcome to the Realms, a supernatural place where Cody is just trying to stay alive, or rather maintain who he is, he actually died before. I think readers of shape shifting, supernatural beings and even romance will find this book intriguing and may want to check out the series to see what else is happening in this strange world.

    Scroll down for the English version.Deliziosa novella paranormaleCody è un mutaforma che vive in una dimensione parallela chiamata “The Realms” dove accanto agli esseri umani si trovano creature paranormali di ogni tipo. È finito laggiù dopo essere morto nel mondo reale ed è per sempre condannato ad avere l’aspetto di un adolescente, tranne quando muta in lupo. La sua non-vita subisce un drastico cambiamento quando conosce l’umana Simone e se ne innamora, ma lei non conosce il suo segreto.Graziosa storia d’amore platonico rivolta a pubblico giovane ma godibile per i lettori di tutte le età che non hanno smesso di sognare. Theresa Snyder ha un’incredibile capacità di parlare al cuore del lettore e coinvolgerlo in qualsiasi storia scriva, indipendentemente dal genere.Non mi capita spesso di leggere storie paranormali, ma da sempre sono attratta dal genere gotico e vederlo presentato in questa veste soft mi ha particolarmente divertito.Adorable paranormal novellaCody is a shape-shifter who lives in a parallel dimension called "The Realms" where next to humans are paranormal creatures of all kinds. He ended up there after dying in the real world and it is forever doomed to have the appearance of a teenager, except when he turns into a wolf. His non-life undergoes a drastic change when he meets and falls in love with Simone, but she does not know his secret.Delightful platonic love story aimed at young audiences but enjoyable for readers of all ages who have not stopped dreaming.

    I bought this book to read on the airplane. I like to pick up novellas as I can finish them before I land and not be caught in that 'I want to read and can't trap.' I was pleasantly surprised by this paranormal, coming of age story.It has elements of sweetness in it along with the obvious angst of teenage dating and a first crush. At the same time, that story is woven into a new element of paranormal settings. The Realms was a unique take on settings in this genre and I absolutely loved it.The main protagonist is believable in both wolf and human form. The rule of the vampires is exactly how I imagine life would be for humans if vampires ran the show.Why this book is not higher on the rankings is beyond me. If you are looking for something new or an easy read, you should definitely check this novella out.

    This was my 1st read in the fantasy/sci-fi realm by this author, who happens to be a friend of mine. I was pleasantly surprised to find I really enjoyed reading this story about Cody. In fact, I didn't put it down until I finished this nice story. I'd recommend it for mature teens only because it involves the 'hormonal' desires of Cody, who sadly is forever trapped in his gawky, teenage boy body. Thank goodness he can shape shift into a powerful, lithe, strong wolf! I want more Cody adventures. This is a series written by different authors, so now I'll sample some of their work too.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this novella, which introduces the reader to The Realms, a shared-world project. It was a fast and fun read, with a main character I'd be interested to see more of in the future. The world seems to offer lots of possibilities for future stories--as does a shape-shifter who also seems to be dead? Free this month, so why not give it a try? Recommended if you like YA protagonists, shape-shifting, fantasy in general.

    Such a great, quick fantasy read! Cody is my favorite, not only because he’s the main character, but because he is sensitive, insecure, and strong all at the same time. Oh, and I love when he turns into an adorable, protective wolf!Read my full review on my blog:

    Larry's takeAnother great read from Theresa. The mixing of human and monsters is well done. It's a lot of fun to read. I'm looking forward to the next book. Must also keep in mind that her books are for "young adults" as well as adults.

    This book, which I received for free in exchange for an honest review from Story Cartel, was very obviously self-published in the sense that there was no professional editing (either copy editing or story editing). The writing was childish - I actually had to look up the author to confirm that she was an adult, the story was choppy and hard to follow, and there was (a personal pet peeve of mine) a rape in the first third of the story. There are literally thousands of ways a young inexperienced wolf shifter could accidentally get killed while killing someone else. Rape revenge killing does not have to be that reason.AHEM - regardless of the rape, I was unable to get very far into the story due to the poor quality of the writing. After checking out the author's blog, I found that this writing style - which does not mesh well with the style I prefer to read - was not anomalous. The number of 4 and 5 star ratings here and on Amazon are rather astounding, and I can only assume that they are from (a) the author and/or her friends, (b) people who feel that receiving a free copy means they have to say nice things, or (c) people who thought that Twilight was deserving of the Nobel Prize for Literature. I actually really hate giving one star reviews, and only do so on Goodreads when I was unable to finish the book. I'll send with this book definitely NOT being my cup of tea and wishing the author best of luck in the future.

    **This book was reviewed for Online Book Club**Snyder's Shifting in the Realms is one of the Twin Cities Series, a collection of novellas written by different authors. This one focuses on Cody, a wolf shifter who fled to the Realms after dying, and who has since taken up working for Raven, a powerful vampire. Cody is introduced to the beautiful Simone when his friend Pete brings him along for a double date. The two do not hit it off as humans, but later Simone sees Cody in his wolf form, and he saves her from the predations of a particularly nasty vampire. The next day, after Pete and Cody finish their work, this same vampire attacks and enslaves Pete. To save his friend, Cody finds help in the most unlikely of places.This was a quick read. I enjoyed the story, though I did at times feel like I was missing something, more of a larger story. I cannot quite say why, because everything necessary to the story is explained. Part is certainly because I’d like to find out what happens after! Another once-through for editing wouldn't be amiss. There were a few places where the writing could be strengthened.

    Cody is a shape shifter, a wolf to be exact, he's also dead , sort of. He's stuck being 16 forever and since he's technically dead he's hiding in the Realm. His dad told him shape shifters don't go to Heaven so he "beat feet" as he puts it from the Midlands, the place dead people wait for their judgement. He's made it to the Realm where he's safe for now and meets a girl. Now go grab it to find out more you won't be disappointed. This is a sweet story with vamps, fire demons, and lots of other paranormal creatures so what's not to love. Perfect for the 13 and over crowd.Independent reviewer for Romance Authors That Rock.

    I really enjoyed this quick read and can't wait to read more from this author. I thought this take on the supernatural was completely engrossing and I'll be excited to read the rest of this particular series!

    Such a great read for a novella. I love Cody's character, so loyal and gawky. The fire-demon is by far the most interesting supporting character and I would love to read her POV.
