The Time Will Come #15

The Time Will Come is a weekly meme hosted by Jodie over at Books For Company where we can spotlight books that we've had for a while and want to read but never get round to.
I can't remember how long I've had Mistwood sitting on my shelf for but it's definitely since before christmas. This looks like an interesting book- it's a YA romance story with shifters. It's got castles and princes and people with powers. I have to admit to being a sucker for the pretty covers as well, and this is lovely, with a sea of bluebells in the foreground, a fairytale castle, and a woman with green eyes and red hair, all shrouded in mist.

Synopsis from Goodreads:
The Shifter is an immortal creature bound by an ancient spell to protect the kings of Samorna. When the realm is peaceful, she retreats to the Mistwood. But when she is needed she always comes.

Isabel remembers nothing. Nothing before the prince rode into her forest to take her back to the castle. Nothing about who she is supposed to be, or the powers she is supposed to have.

Prince Rokan needs Isabel to be his Shifter. He needs her ability to shift to animal form, to wind, to mist. He needs her lethal speed and superhuman strength. And he needs her loyalty—because without it, she may be his greatest threat.

Isabel knows that her prince is lying to her, but she can't help wanting to protect him from the dangers and intrigues of the court . . . until a deadly truth shatters the bond between them.

Now Isabel faces a choice that threatens her loyalty, her heart . . . and everything she thought she knew.


  1. Ooh, I just ordered this a couple of days ago. It was the pretty cover that pulled me in too. Hope you enjoy it when you eventually get to it!

  2. This looks really good. I've never heard of it before. Thanks :) Donna x

  3. I have seen really good reviews on this and everyone says not to judge it by the cover. Hope you get around to it soon and enjoy it =)

  4. Never heard of this one before, but I hope you like it :)

    BTW, is it just me or does that castle look exactly like Hogwarts?

  5. This one sounds interesting and I've heard of it here and there. I hadn't even noticed the bluebells until you pointed them out! I don't know how many books I have sitting on my shelves waiting for me to read. A ton, I can tell you that! Hopefully you get to this one soon!
