Aiden’s Shepherd (Paws and Magic #1) by Beany Sparks ~ Book Review by PizzyGirl

Aiden's Shepherd Title: Aiden’s Shepherd (Paws and Magic #1)

Author: Beany Sparks

Publisher: eXtasy

Cover Artist: Latrisha Waters

Rating: 4.25 of 5 Stars

Blurb:

A man who never knew magic and shifters existed gets a crash course when he saves an injured dog.

Aiden Grey is packed and ready to move and start a new phase of his life away from the family that kicked him out when he was eighteen. The night before he leaves he sees something fall out of the back of a van. Upon closer inspection, he is shocked to find that it’s not the bag he suspected, it’s a dog!

He decides to take the dog with him, and the two set off the next morning to Aiden’s new home. Everything is going well for Aiden and the German Shepherd he named Lex. That is, until said German Shepherd shifts into a man who claims Aiden is his mate.

Lex can’t believe he’s finally found his mate. But as happy as he is to have him, he still worries about his brother and pack, and where they have ended up.

With the revelation that shifters exist, secrets about Aiden’s past come to light. Secrets he didn’t even know existed. Suddenly, Aiden has to deal with not only the reality of shifters, but also ghosts and magic. But with Lex by his side he can handle anything—even his surprise guest.

PizzyGirl’s View:

Aiden’s Shepherd is the start to the Paws and Magic series by Beany Sparks. It is a short but fun introduction to what the reader can expect in this new world. It establishes mating practices (yes, this is the traditional shifter instant love connection type mating), establishes character history, and introduces plot/characters to carry this series forward. I greatly enjoyed the presentation of the magic and mating rules. I love how the author integrates teasers about the past and future using Aiden’s grandmother’s book. I love that there are so many mysterious statements that are just vague enough that I understood the action happening in this book while still wanting to know what will happen in the future.

Is this the absolute best shifter story I have ever read? No, it has a few holes that could be fleshed out more, and the ending is rather abrupt and cliffhanger-like. But it is such a fun and interesting read that I cannot wait for more. You absolutely have to be a fan of the paranormal/fantasy genres to appreciate this work. However, if you are a fan, this is a short, whimsical tale that is worth taking the time to read.

Also, I have to give props to the blurb writer for this one. It was intriguing enough to make me pick up this book, but it hid so much that I was pleasantly surprised by the storyline. I was expecting shifters and magic, but I was not expecting to be more involved in the magic than the shifting. Bonus points to any writer who can surprise me in such a positive way!

This is my only experience with this author, but I will be rectifying that shortly.
