ARC Reviews


Sibilance .(Woodland Creek) by Aria Kane. Paranormal Romance My Review.

Snake-shifter Sophia Samson is on the run with a knife-wound to the gut after her last con went belly up. With a mob man hot on her tail and her wound not healing like it should, she seeks refuge in her mother's childhood hometown, Woodland Creek. She slithers in through the back door of the urgent care clinic and charms the handsome doctor into treating her. 

The shifters of Woodland Creek turn to Desmond Callahan, MD when they suffer from unique medical conditions, but when Sophia sneaks into his office with silver poisoning, it's obvious she has no idea there are other shifters in their small town. Desmond can tell Sophia doesn't want him to know she's a shifter - and that's not the only thing she's hiding. As a puca, Desmond has a few tricks of his own up his sleeve and he's not going to let the captivating Sophia slip out of his life so easily.

Sophia Samson is wounded and on the run. The only place she can think of to go is Woodland Creek, the nowhere town her mother grew up in. She is not healing the way her Snake shifter metabolism normally would.  The ceremonial knife that she was stabbed with must have been special. 
Doctor Desmond Callahan is a Puca shifter,  working as a doctor in a town with so many "Others"  means he gets some strange cases. When he finds a naked, wounded woman in his storeroom it's obvious she is something other than human.
There are some really strange types of shifter in Woodland Creek. They provide us with laughs as well as excitement. Our heroine has no idea there are others out there who have an animal side to them. For someone who has lived by her wits for years she is incredibly innocent. Our hero as a Puca is a trickster,  not the most dangerous of shifters,  but he does have lots of good friends that are willing to help when danger comes to town.
A good fun read.


A collaborative, fictional collection of Shifter stories set in one town.

Woodland Creek, Indiana is a quaint college town full of old-world charm - with plenty to tantalize shifter, wizard, and human residents alike. Your days will be filled with the indulgent pleasures of our popular downtown, with your nights rejuvenated by the sporadic screams of the damned. Here in Woodland Creek, the supernatural townsfolk protect their secrets with firepower, claws, or spells. And the humans live mostly oblivious (unless they're eaten). 

Welcome to Woodland Creek.
Our fair town.
Please visit the picturesque forest! The locals in the woods enjoy the occasional lost soul. Just make sure to bring a shovel--our tools disappear far too often.
We hope you have a wonderful stay!
