Zac is an orphan, an outcast, and a shifter. Turning into a wolf is an unforgivable crime in the elite regime. Enforcers hunt down and kill anyone who can shift.

Shifter: City of Wolves is the first book in a paranormal romance series that features passionate romance, intensely real emotion, supernatural powers, and forbidden shifter love.
Shifter by Avery Burch is the first novel in the City of Wolves Series. This author is new to me and I have to say that I like her debut novel. Of course you can sense that it is her first book, but it definitely has potential to be something more in the future.
Zac and his friend Jason are traveling to New York City, hoping for a better life. The both are fascinated by this new city, but it is clear that the differences between classes are huge. Zac and Jason are “normals” but there have been signs that Zac could be a shifter too. Shifters are the lowest of them all and they will be hunted down by the Elite Guards.
Lyla is one of the Elite, the highest class of the City. Her whole life is pre-arranged if she like it or not. At the age of nineteen she is engaged to be married to her uncle Oswald. But when she meets Zac, she knows there is more in life then be the future wife of a politician.
When Zac sees Lyla for the first time on the bridge into the City, he knows she is his fated mate. But since she is an Elite he also knows it could cost them both their lives if they give in to their feelings.
I have to say that this was an interesting story. As I said before you can tell that this is the first novel by this author, because the story has some flaws, especially in the beginning, but it was getting interesting towards the end. I definitely want to read more in this series to see where this story goes.
I received this novel from the author in exchange for an honest review.
