Publisher's Summary

The idea of shapeshifters - beings both human and animal - ignites our imaginations with visions of primal passions and insatiable hungers. Most commonly seen as dark, masculine demons, shapeshifters are in need of a metaphysical overhaul - a new feminine/Sapphic blending of physical power and inescapable desires. She Shifters re-envisions common and not-so-common myths and deliver a fresh perspective from the storytellers.

Traditional lycanthropes and feline familiars appear, was well as more obscure, lesser-known mythologies from around the world to create inventive tales celebrating feminine power, lust, and erotic love. Paisley Smith's "The Night Crow" finds two lovers, divided by centuries and a terrible sacrifice, reunited in London. In Christine d'Abo's, "Scorched Retribution", a human woman has come home after a ten year absence, hoping to make amends with the one person whose heart she'd broken. But the heart of a dragon isn't easily won and the woman must offer herself up for retribution or risk losing her lover forever. In Angela Caperton's "Sweetwater Pass," the eldest daughter in a family of shape shifters heading to California in the era of the great wagon trains, meets a Native American "sister" and finds the promise of the West fulfilled. Delilah Devlin's one-of-a-kind She Shifters unleashes the wild creature inside us all!

Good stories, annoying narration

The stories are mixed and, as appropriate for mixed stories have mixed appeal. Some are great, some okay.

Unfortunately the narration ruined the experience for me. Ms. West's ability with accents is amazing, but she committed two cardinal sins of narration.

Accents are nice but we have to be able to understand the words. having to rewind multiple times to understand what is said is annoying.

Second, whispers need to be stage whispers. having to raise the volume to ear damaging levels to heart a sentence then be blasted by the next normal volume sentence idea unnecessary. And if course the required repeated rewind is aggravating.
