Publisher's Summary

Shapechangers.

They were the Cheysuli, a race of magical warriors gifted with the ability to assume animal shape at will. For centuries they had been allies to the King of Homana, treasured champions of the realm. Until a king’s daughter ran away with a Cheysuli liege man and caused a war of annihilation against the Cheysuli race. Twenty-five years later the Cheysuli were hunted exiles in their own land, feared for their sorcery, their shapechanging.

This is the story of Alix, the daughter of that ill-fated union between Homanan princess and Cheysuli warrior, and her struggle to master the call of magic in her blood, and accept her place in an ancient prophecy she cannot deny.The Song of Homana. For five long years the land of Homana had been strangling in the grasp of a usurper king - its people ravaged by strife, poverty and despair; its magical race, the Cheysuli, forced to flee or face extermination at the hands of their evil counterparts, the sorcerous Ilhini. The time had come for Prince Carillon, Homana's rightful ruler, to return from exile with his Cheysuli liege man, free his land from the evil domination of the tyrant Bellam and his villainous magicians, restore the Cheysuli to their rightful position of grace, and claim his birthright. To do this, he would not only have to raise an army, but overcome the fear and prejudice of an ignorant population and answer the call of a prophecy he never chose to serve!

    "I have waited forever for Cheysuli on Audible!"
    Would you listen to Shapechangers again? Why?

    I will absolutely listen to this again, after I listen to all the other books in the series!


    What did you like best about this story?

    This is a novel that I have loved since it first came out many years ago, yet in some ways it seems even more appropriate today. Life often isn't fair but there is always hope. This theme seems to be interwoven throughout the series, wrapped up in a story that grabs you by the feels.

    Jennifer Roberson is one of my favorite authors and I was thrilled for her series to be available on Audible. Keep 'em coming!


    What about Bronson Pinchot’s performance did you like?

    Everything! I never have trouble telling characters apart when he's the narrator, and he doesn't just read the story, he throws himself fully into it.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes it was, and I was frustrated that I had to stop listening and go to work.


    Any additional comments?

    If you love well written fantasy with shape shifters and feisty heroines, spend a credit and get this book. In fact, spend all your credits and get the whole series! I'm going to.

    "Just Did not catch my interest..."
    What disappointed you about Shapechangers?

    Just didn't have a good flare in the story and just didn't keep my interest


    Has Shapechangers turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no


    What didn’t you like about Bronson Pinchot’s performance?

    Didn't seem like it was Bronson Pinchot. No offense to him I just don't think the material was good.

    Blase

    Anyone who says they have only one life to live must not know how to read a book.

    "Nonsens!"

    I did not realize this is a love story. It is also over dramatic, over syruped and over priced! I did not finish this book, I simply could not take one more second of this nonsens

    The Story. The Narration. The Characters.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jennifer Roberson again?

    No.


    What didn’t you like about Bronson Pinchot’s performance?

    Nothing. he was poor in all areas. The female sounded so prissy and the men just boring and bland.

    The entire book.
