BOOK REVIEW: SOLIDIFY by Alexia Purdy

Solidify (Woodland Creek)
Woodland Creek Series.
30 Authors. 30 Shifter Stories.
5 out of 5 stars!


Blurb:
This is a standalone paranormal shifter romance.

Being a hero is overrated.

Malachi Arend is a brazen loner who wants nothing more than to get the hell out of the small town of Woodland Creek. As he’s leaving, he stumbles across a nurse named Phoebe Reynolds, a newly minted Caladrius shifter who takes the shape of a snow-white bird. She ignites something unexpected inside him, thwarting his attempt to leave.

When a vengeful spirit begins attacking the townspeople, Malachi and Phoebe are drawn into the fray. Phoebe’s transformation could be tied to the attacks, but whoever is responsible might also be seeking to finish what they started, and all of Woodland Creek may pay the price.

Malachi never wanted to be a hero, but it seems he doesn't have a choice.


My Review:
Well…I can start by saying Alexia Purdy does it again!!  I absolutely adored this book, and the characters she created – even the bad ones.  The most stand out part of this book to me is that it wasn’t just your average shifter book.  The TYPES of shifters were incredibly creative, and the way some of the stories crossed made it even better.

This book was paranormal, it was sweetly romantic – just enough, not over the top – and a pull-you-in mystery.  I devoured it. I loved it.  I hated that it was a short story, only because I wanted to spend more time with the characters.  But at the same time, it was a perfect length to tell the story.  It didn’t feel rushed like some can, and in half the length of a full novel, it FELT like a full novel.

Malachi…if someone was going to get close to hitting me with a truck, I’d be totally OK it was him.  He thinks he wants to be alone, until Phoebe rocks his world.  And in this new world she found herself in, she had the perfect tour guide.  They worked well together from the beginning, and I really loved both of their unique personalities.


I can’t recommend this book enough, even if you’re someone that doesn’t usually like shorter stories.  This one is worth it!  And if maybe there were another story written to see what happens with these characters, and this crazy cool town, there would be NO complaints from this reader!
