Review of Shadowshift by Peter Giglio

I received a copy of this from the publishers via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

4 Stars

Wow, I loved how in this story, there were actually two stories which really made the whole book so interesting.  One story is about a couple who are involved in a life of crime, domestic abuse, sad story, upsetting at times but this has its own suspense.

The other story being told is about a father and daughter, dad is a shapeshifter and the daughter is gifted with the ability to control electronics using her mind.  Whilst dad turns into a cockroach (yeah I know kinda weird choice), and crawls under doors etc to gain access to properties with the sole purpose of committing burglary, with that ability of shapeshifting he could have committed far bigger robberies than steal on a small scale which would have been more in line with his greedy nature.  However, his daughter is just trying to get along with her life and make it a little more bearable.

Shadowshift is an excellent story of suspense, it is dark and twisted, with the additional twist of the supernatural which is thrilling to say the least.  I do prefer much longer thrillers than this was, but it still was a terrific story.
