Friday Face Off: Shapeshifter

This is a weekly meme created by Books by Proxy, but currently run by Lynn’s Book Blog.

“Beware the moon, lads.”

This weeks theme:  A cover with a shapeshifter.

I love a good shapeshifter book ❤ I much prefer shapeshifters/werewolves/Animagi to vampires (#TeamJacob) But the problem with shapeshifter books is that, most of the ones I have read are romances and therefore have very few covers. And the ones that aren’t romances (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Soulless, Twilight, Definitely Dead) don’t prominently feature the shapeshifter on the covers.  They might have 1 or 2 covers with them, but thats not enough!

My Choice: X-Ops Series and SWAT: Special Wolf Alpha Team Series

I’m going to go a bit rogue this week and compare two different series, because I don’t know what other book to choose!

Back in April 2016 I became slightly obsessed with these series! I read 7 books and 4 novellas in like 5 days because I couldn’t get enough! I read all the ones that had been released at the time but now I am pretty far behind in both series, but we can still drool over the covers!

X-Ops 1

The first ever book I read by Paige Tyler was Her Perfect Mate (X-Ops #1).  I loved it because the female was the shapeshifter and the male was human, which rarely every happens in shapeshifting romances!! It was awesome! She wasn’t some hapless female who needed protecting, she was a strong woman who needed a partner and I loved that dynamic!

Which is your favorite? Do you agree with my choice? Let me know in the comments!!

  1. Oh my god, I’m so excited!! I LOVE shifter romances! They’re a guilty pleasure and I’ve been dying to find a new series to dive into. I’ll have to check these out 😍 Have you read the Seven series by Dannika Dark? That’s my favorite right now, but maybe these will become the reigning shifter champion. Lol.

  2. It’s odd isn’t it – there are a heck of a lot of books with shapeshifters but not covers that really reflect that – that being said, the woman on your cover is a shapeshiter – the theme doesn’t say she has to be in her ‘shifted’ form! Bah Dah Bing.
    Nice gif of Jacob.

  3. All the abs lol! And you’re right- it can be hard I think to find covers that scream shapeshifter without having the romance vibe. Not that I’m an expert haha! 🙂 Seriously though, I like your choice- that’s just a fun cover! And I agree about the guy being a mundane- I like the idea of her being the shifter and him not being.
