Review: Shifter’s Fate (Willow Harbor #1) by Alyssa Rose Ivy

Posted on

Sometimes fate can’t be ignored…

Mattie is desperate when she accepts a librarian position in the small coastal town of Willow Harbor. She plans to spend a few months there, enough time to get a reference and move somewhere she actually wants to be. But fate has other plans.

Pierce has given up on finding his mate. His family line of true shapeshifters will die out, but there is nothing he can do with only a few weeks left before his birthday. Until Mattie shows up in town.

When Mattie’s past catches up, and Pierce’s family turns on him, will fate be enough to see them through?

Strange Neighbors. Hidden Desires. Small Town Charm. Welcome to Willow Harbor where everyone has a secret. What’s yours?



My Review

“My life would never go back to normal, but I was okay with that.”

Shifter’s Fate is the first book in the Willow Harbor Series. Each story in the Willow Harbor Series is told by a different author and brings you a different take on the paranormal setting these authors have created.

Shifter’s Fate is told from dual points of view and follows the story of Mattie and Pierce. From the moment I picked up this book, I was totally intrigued. I had so many questions about this quiet town. The town folk were odd and mysterious. Everyone seemed to have a secret that they don’t want Mattie to find out. Mattie may think she is town to be the much needed librarian, but she is there for a greater purpose…She just doesn’t know it yet. Meanwhile, Pierce is avoiding topic of his 25th birthday like the plague. He doesn’t believe in fate or higher purposes…That is until Mattie rolls into town. Pierce feels an instant pull. He tries to deny it, but fate is impossible to avoid. Will these two survive the complications that surround this mysterious town? There is only one way to find out…

Overall, I really enjoyed Shifter’s Fate. This story was fast-paced and intriguing. I loved the setting and the mystery that surrounded this town. The characters were odd and intriguing at the same time. I loved the themes of fate and supernatural beings. Once again Alyssa Rose Ivy has created a world and characters that I can’t get enough of. Pierce and Mattie’s story was fun, entertaining, sweet with great supernatural elements. I can’t wait to check out the rest of the books in this series.
