Like some of the other commentators, I agree the ending is a little rushed, especially given the author's dedication to world-building, but I still love this story. I return to it all the time, and have been for years.

I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this story given how they was nothing spectacularly unique about the story.

This book was such a great story! I didn't like the rest of the series but I keep checking out the first one - it's addictive.

This is a wonderful fantasy novel, it is sweet, the characters relatable and the plot believable- everything you could want. The problem is that this novel would have been a great stand alone novel and the rest of the series didn't add much to it. For anyone that hasn't read the rest of the series yet I recommend just reading Hawksong.

What's great about this novel is that it doesn't take very long for the reader to be drawn in to the story. The conflicts are believable because they are relatable. Very creative and VERY engaging.

The best fantasy novel I've read in a really long time! The mix of adventure, romance and humour is at a perfect ratio, and everything is fit together to flawlessly one could believe that the shapeshifters really exist!

He trailed off and kissed me again, this time briefly, just the barest touch of lips to lips. "I love you."

From a man who frequently uttered eloquent speeches, the tentative declaration was not the most flattering of compliments - especially when every movement he made and look he cast my way had shown the truth long before now.
