Years have passed since there was any sighting of Family Mongrel  . I wondered throughout the novel what the exiled were seeking for fom the family of the young woman and I must say that I was completely surprised. I expected something extraordinary and I admit even if it is more basic I did not expect that at all. However, it’s very simple and important to them.

Shifting plains, Jean Johnson. It wasn’t unusual, since tigers hunted all along the fringes of the Morning River, particularly near the Shifting Plains.

But they were wild creatures; they disliked fire, and they were wary of men. They did not creep up to the edge of a bandit encampment, and they certainly would not do so on the downwind side, where the smoke from the three fires tended by the bandits would sting the striped cat’s sensitive nose, arousing the instinct to flee.

Before the Sons of Destiny came to be, shapechangers ruled the heart of a shattered empire and navigated the uncertain shifts of fate…

Years have passed since there was any sighting of Family Mongrel on the Shifting Plains. Yet traces remain, and they lead south into the Correda Mountains. As a favor to his brother and sister-in-law, Kenyen Sin Siin has taken it upon himself to track down these hints from the past and make sure the curs have not survived. The trail grows colder, more tangled, until he’s trapped in a valley where not everyone is as they seem.  He will either adapt and survive or be uncovered and perish before his mission is complete.

 

Wary of strangers and distrustful of the unfamiliar, Solyn Ys Rei and her best friend have formed a secret resistance. One of a rare few with the ability to stand up to and evade enemies, she must still tread with great caution, particularly when even her best friend starts acting oddly. Allies could be enemies lurking in disguise, and a stranger’s face could hide a new foe as easily as a new friend.

This is a sequel to The Shifting Plains, set in the same world as the Sons of Destiny but a decade or so earlier. The male POV character is Kenyen Sin Siin, the younger brother of the male POV character in the earlier book. He was a minor character there—he’s a fairly strong shifter, though not the multerai his brother is. He can only do seven shapes: tiger, wolf, stallion, viper, magpie, owl, and hunting cat. He’s part of a hunting party sent from the Cat Family to investigate whether the “Mongrel Family” that had enslaved the mother of his sister-in-law Atava before she escaped still existed or if it had died out in the couple of decades since her escape. They’d come across a clue in a cave, and since there was some ambiguity in the location they’d split up, so he was searching in some foothills when he came across a young man, Traver, near his age who was fleeing from something. And he learns that a group of shifters—exiled Shifterai—had learned how to shift their looks to match those of innocent non-shifters, whom they’d then kill. He’s just informed Kenyen about this when a shifter catches him—Kenyen pretends that he’s an exile himself looking for a group to join, maybe the one this one is from, and after they give him some tests they tell him to take on Taver’s shape and take his place in the village where he’d lived and seduce his betrothed, whose family has something the shifters badly want, though they won’t tell him what it is. Solyn Ys Rei is the betrothed, and is the daughter of a healer and a blacksmith, as well as being a fairly talented though untrained Mage. As one would expect, she finds the new Taver much more attractive than the old one had been (she’d been fond of him in a sisterly sort of way, but had only become engaged when another obnoxious suitor had become importunate), and quickly figures out that this isn’t the real Taver at all. There’s some sex, but not as much as in most of her books; it’s more involved with intrigue and adventure. I liked it better than The Shifting Plains, since it didn’t spend so much time describing the details of Shifterai society.

I'm a big fan of Jean Johnson's books and this lives up to the previous ones. This is listed as a new series but is a spin off of the Sons of Destiny series and as such is a continuation of the world that she created there but she has shifted (no pun intended) to different characters and another continent. The world she has created is gone into with more detail and the characters are wonderfully well rounded and believable. I can't wait for the next in the series.

This story was unique and kept me engaged throughout. I loved the characters and the plot itself was extremely unique. The world Jean Johnson has created is exciting and well thought out. I would definitely suggest this book.
Paxondano
This was an enjoyable read, but not "impossible to put down" as the writer's "Sons of Destiny" and "Soldier (Theirs Not To Reason Why)" series are. Still worth reading. Some of the phrasing sticks in your head, and there were several times I laughed out loud. The writer seems particularly good at "real life" in a fantasy setting, with details about tedious tasks. Recommended. :)
Modifyn
love all her books

Was so nice to be able to continue the stories of the shifting plains! I look toward to following that story more in the future!

It seemed that the writing was aimed at a less mature audience (except for the sex scenes) Not up to her usual.
Loved the series wish the author writes another book in the series. First book was better but got me hooked
