The year is 1618, and Allakau is different from the other members of the Alaskan Yupik tribe. His people survive by hunting, but Allakau is unable to kill or eat flesh. As another season reaches its end and winter approaches, Allakau encounters a narwhal with silver eyes similar to his own. He saves the creature’s life but incurs his father’s wrath, and Allakau is given one last chance to prove himself a productive part of the tribe or be left behind to die. As he spends time alone in the woods, clues about his past and destiny begin to fall into place with the aid of another silver-eyed creature. His hunt might finally lead him to the truth about what sets him apart and where he belongs—if he can survive it.

A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2016 Daily Dose package “A Walk on the Wild Side.”

My View:

It has been a while since I read a Brandon Witt book.  Actually, the last one I read was probably when I had the extreme privilege of Beta reading his Then the Stars Fall.  It was high time I returned to this favorite author.

Shifting Silver is Witt’s contribution to Dreamspinner’s annual Summer Daily Dose collection.  This year’s theme was “Walk on the Wild Side”. Shifting Silver is a fantasy involving unicorns, narwhals, humans, and of course shifters.

It is a love story that transcends time and species.  It is a story about what is important in life.  It is beautiful from start to end.
