Mistwood is about a Shifter, Isabel. Her job is to protect the king, no matter what the cost to herself. She can shift and has powers that no human can rival. When the new prince comes to her wood to bring her back to the castle to protect him, she finds she cannot remember her past. She finds her powers weaker than the legends say and that everyone remembers. She struggles to protect her prince and conceal her weakness. Slowly, she begins to unearth a conspiracy that may be the reason for her inability to fully shift as she used to.
I really liked this book. It was a really unique plot to have a creature with so much power, and yet be struggling with human emotions. I thought it was really cool how even thought Isabel can do things no human can do, she's also really human. The end brings a startling twist that answers the question of why Isabel is no longer like her legends. I liked this book because it was full of mystery, treachery, conspiracies and loyalty.
