The Best Shapeshifter Book I've Read/Heard Yet

It's well written with an interesting setting and characters I remember. The main character LOVES his shapeshifting as much as I imagine I would, and that brings a smile to my face every time it comes up in the story. The "Magical School" setting is a little cliche and familiar, but the story is overal recommended by me for supernatural and transformation adventure fans. Already purchased second entry.

Good tale - shame about the narration style

Glen McCready's posh RP vocal style was perfect for Ali Sparkes's Frozen in Time (which I love and have listened to several times), because it featured 1950s middle class children speaking in that manner, but doesn't seem to fit with The Shapeshifter. For me, it distracts from an otherwise good audiobook with a fine premise and plot.

Fantastic series

My son and I have thoroughly enjoyed reading the Shapeshifter series, he enjoyed it so much that he is now listening to them all again as audio books. Wonderfully written with great characterisation and a compelling plot and with moments of very funny humour and genuinely scary bits. Excellent

Ali Sparkes is such a good author

I first listened to her shapeshifter series and absolutely loved it, and moved on to her other books, she has a similar sort of style when it comes to her books, lots of action, mystery and really good. Another series I definitely recommend by her is her night speaker series, this has so much action and a similar style to this, kids with superpowers and all that, definitely recommend it.

Love it!

As an animal lover I absolutely adored this book, I have read and read this book over 20 times and it never gets old! But it was very annoying when in the middle of the chapter it says “end of disc one” and how it changes narrator although a do think Ali sparks is much better at it the the posh manner of the first narrator over all this was such an amazing book and I am so happy they finally made a feather and fang audiobook🥰
