Publisher's Summary

Dax Jones is an ordinary schoolboy ...until something extraordinary happens one day. Whilst frightened for his life, he inexplicably changes into a fox! Before long, both a government agent and an ambitious young journalist are on his tail. The agent tells him that he is one of several children with special powers and he's been offered a place at a secret government school where he can develop, and learn to control, these powers. If Dax accepts, on no account can he tell anybody, especially not the journalist. Dax jumps at the chance of attending the boarding school. His home life is unhappy and he would do anything to escape it. And when he gets to the school, he is amazed to find himself amongst kids with all sorts of talents, from the ability to levitate to the ability to move things using only the mind. Dax immediately feels at home. But first the journalist tracks him down. And then he begins to wonder who exactly is behind the school, and what they want from the pupils there. Suddenly Dax's fox senses are on high alert....

The Best Shapeshifter Book I've Read/Heard Yet

It's well written with an interesting setting and characters I remember. The main character LOVES his shapeshifting as much as I imagine I would, and that brings a smile to my face every time it comes up in the story. The "Magical School" setting is a little cliche and familiar, but the story is overal recommended by me for supernatural and transformation adventure fans. Already purchased second entry.

Good tale - shame about the narration style

Glen McCready's posh RP vocal style was perfect for Ali Sparkes's Frozen in Time (which I love and have listened to several times), because it featured 1950s middle class children speaking in that manner, but doesn't seem to fit with The Shapeshifter. For me, it distracts from an otherwise good audiobook with a fine premise and plot.

Fantastic series

My son and I have thoroughly enjoyed reading the Shapeshifter series, he enjoyed it so much that he is now listening to them all again as audio books. Wonderfully written with great characterisation and a compelling plot and with moments of very funny humour and genuinely scary bits. Excellent

A gripping and exciting tale

I loved this book. It’s a gripping and exciting tale. I was totally convinced by the shapeshifting power of Dax. The rich and vivid description of the the boy’s surroundings, and his feelings as a boy and a fox bring the story to life. I felt myself rummaging through the bins and running through the woods with him!
