Title: Shifted Perspective
Series: Tails of Change # 1
Release date: August 27, 2012
Publisher:  J. Bridger
Contemporary / Paranormal

Caleb Byrne is a bright high school senior who has enough to deal with between college choices, taking care of his single dad, and dealing with his headstrong girlfriend Joanna and an eccentric set of cousins in California. He was managing to get by until the day he woke up a Cocker Spaniel. Even if it only happens monthly and is more embarrassing than painful, the so-called ability is something that he's anxious to be rid of.

He didn't realize his transformations would drag him into a hidden society of canine and lupine shape shifters as well as a family legacy he hates. To make matters worse, after moving to Los Angeles to learn more about his heritage from his Aunt Moira and his cousin Kalista, Caleb now struggles through life-and-death matters. He keeps angering the werewolves in charge of the shifter world, especially Kalista's boyfriend Peter, the Southern California alpha's son, who also happens to be grade-A sociopath. Worse, Caleb's floundering to keep his secret from Joanna.

While his family offers him some support, they may not be enough as Caleb realizes that the rules in shifter society---number one is supposed to be don't kill humans---are not so ironclad. Some werewolf out there is leaving a blood-soaked trail across the Midwest and it might just be with the alpha's blessing...

Shifted Perspective by J. Bridger was a very entertaining debut novel. I was asked by this author for an honest review and when I read the book description I thought it was interesting.

Caleb is a young man who wakes up one morning to discover that he is in dog form. It appears he is from a shifter family and apparently can shift into a dog. Caleb’s mother left him and his father six years ago and never bothers to tell them that she is from a canine shifter family. Because Caleb never showed any signs that he inherited the gene, his aunt and uncle never prepared him. Luckily for Caleb his father is a fabulous man who will do anything for his son and support him in every way he can.

Caleb and his father go to Los Angeles to visit Caleb’s shifter family, where he can learn to control his shifting and learn more about the shifter society. They both face the pack alpha, which happens to be a big bad wolf and if they don’t follow the shifter rules, there will be consequences.

J. Bridger has written a great debut novel, with lots of humor, great characters and a little mystery crime to solve. I found myself turning page after page so I could read what Caleb was doing next. I loved Caleb’s interaction with his own dog, it appears he can communicate with him after his first shift and I have to say there were funny moments. I’m curious to see how this story will continue in the second book of this series.
