Two strangers walk into Melanie's life. One is a reported hoping to get her sister to reveal herself as a shapechanger, the other her sister's new boyffriend who comes with distressing news. Her sister is sick, and Melanie's eyes open to the fact that she has noticed a decline for awhile. Melanie tries to balance her loneliness, her fear and her search for her sister all while trying to battle her attraction to Brody, the reporter, who might destroy them all. This story is quiet, with no grand revealing moments. It touches you and is closer to making the possibility of a living fairytale much more touchable than some of the other fantastic writers that I enjoy.

Absorbing, moving, and gracefully written. Highly recommended.
