The Shape of My Soul / Lynette Ferreira




In 1 AD, Ovid wrote the Metamorphoses, in which there is the tale of King Lycaon (the origin of the word Lycanthrope) who greatly offended the gods by serving human flesh to them. Jupiter punished Lycaon by transforming him into a wolf. This myth lacks modern features of werewolf tales, in particular the idea of changing back and forth. Nevertheless, it likely set in motion the idea of "man becoming wolf".

Growing up in a secluded castle in the Scottish Highlands can be lonely and Amber Belvedere yearns to feel normal. In The Shape of My Soul, her hopes are pinned on a fresh start in Edinburgh, away from her mist shrouded castle. When Amber discovers secrets about her heritage and her parents, she discovers she is the one who comes to her friends' rescue every time they are in danger. Her mother and father eloped, and now her grandfather's heart is filled with revenge. He cannot bear the thought any longer that her mother swore fealty to another clan. Then there is Bradley Windsor, her best friend since they were little, but now he avoids her every chance he gets.
