Publisher's Summary

Love follows no rules....

Bear shifter Growler and Bond Switch (savage witch) Anna begin their lives at the cosh, a place with only one rule: A switch may not favor only one shifter, because it makes her weak. This is a rule Anna has no choice but to break, as Growler steals her heart again and again.

Ehh.

I very much enjoyed Lisa Ladew's One True Mate series, so I thought I'd give this one a try. Based on this first book, I don't like this Switch of Fate series quite as much. The writing style is quite different. I think one of the things that lowered the experience for me was hearing "Growler growled" so many time (which, yes, isn't necessarily writing style, but this is not what I was talking about). Seriously, it is said far too frequently. I get it. His name is Growler (though not because he growls) and he growls on a regular basis (apparently a complete coincidence). He's a bear. Bears growl. His name could've been Rufus just as easily (or any other name, for that matter) and I get the feeling he would still have growled fairly regularly. That being said, the story was still quite interesting. It was much different than the One True Mate series, though they are similar in the sense that there is a foe being combated to protect the humans and female shifters are incredibly rare. In the One True Mate series, the KSRT (Kane Special Response Team), a team of wolven, is actively battling the demon, Kane, who killed almost all female shifters 25 years ago. In this book, the Cosh switches and shifters are tasked with combating vampires. Overall, not a bad read, but I was contemplating not continuing the series. Having since finished the first and started the second books of the series, I am glad I continued.

Keep in mind this is the prequel. Unfortunately, none of the characters appear to carry over to the rest of the series. (I really want to know what happens next for Anna and her sister switches and the males and figure out what the deal is with Antoni. Why is she so against mating? Why is there dark intertwined with the pink of her magic [does it have something to do with vampire magic]?) It also appears this may have taken place long before the first book in the story begins. This book is not necessary for understanding the Switch of Fate series, but it does give you a leg up on understanding exactly what switches are and their purpose and relations with the chosen shifters.

Performance Production Problem

Chapter 16 is Missing. Chapter 14 is repeated after Chapter 15 and before 17. What is in the Missing Chapter?
Big Production Error.
Liked the rest of the story.

Love it but where’s ch 16?

Love this story. But for some reason it went from chapter 14 to 15 back to 14 then to chapter 17. I feel like I missed something. But once again I love the story still

Ehhhh~

Ehhhhh, It was alright. It was an interesting concept and given that thisbus a prequel, I'm going to give book 1 a chance before I stop listening.

Enjoyable

I found this very slow to take off compared to the following books. The narrative was good as usual. Not as good as the following books.
