The Shape of My Soul

A past she knows nothing about is back to bite her.

In a time before Bradley broke her heart, even before she felt there was no hope he would ever like her, she arrived at a secluded castle on the most northern borders of the Scottish Highlands.

Just after she turns seventeen, her uncle sends her to live in Edinburgh, without telling her the reason, but Amber hopes the fresh start will help her get over her going-nowhere crush on Bradley Windsor.

Bradley has managed to keep the family secret, but now nobody is safe, especially Amber and when she discovers her clan's ancient secret, she discovers she is a girl who can change her body to fit the shape of her soul.

What readers are saying...

The strength of characters is brought to the forefront gently by Ferreira, and I found myself really, really caring about Amber and hoping that Bradley would turn into someone worth loving. The scenes are very well written and the setting is dazzling. The Shape of My Soul by Lynette Ferreira will give you a satisfying feeling, both as you read and once you finish, as well as a desire to know more—much more—about Amber and her clan and how she will survive in the future. Trust me, it won’t be easy. “Oh. My. Effing. Snowball.” I think I have found a new expletive! - Reviewed by Dinah Roseberry for Readers' Favorite

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Interesting and intriguing

This was an interesting and intriguing story about a girl named Amber. She didn’t know she was a shifter and that she could shift into many forms but had to choose one or choose to be human forever. Bradley was her childhood friend. They were both secretly in love with each other. He was also her tether. Amber was forced into a world she had no clue of. Elizabeth McDaniel on November 25, 2019

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Really well done

I did not realize what the title meant until it became relevant in the story. It was definitely startling and unexpected. I don’t usually do paranormal romances, but this one was very well done. The characters were deep and the story-line was great. Michaela on November 23, 2019

★ ★ ★ ★ And she has a fun inner dialogue and sense of humor

This was a really enjoyable book, especially for fans of fantasy/paranormal. Amber is a totally identifiable heroine, despite her supernatural abilities. And she has a fun inner dialogue and sense of humor. Even though it's in the paranormal realm, at its heart this is a book about self discovery and first love. I would definitely recommend it! cjrs on January 4, 2017

★ ★ ★ ★ Quick read and fun characters

Great YA story in a beautiful Scotland setting. The characters were interesting and complex. Definitely an interesting take on the traditional shifter plot-line. Kind of a cliffhanger ending, making me wonder if there's more to the story. Alicia L. on November 10, 2016

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ A 5 STAR STORY!

I very much enjoyed this story and definitely recommend it! Lynette is a very talented author and her books capture the imagination and draw you into the story so that you feel like you are a part of it. I really felt for Amber during her loneliness and isolation and for having to make such a monumental decision at such a young age. I loved the relationship with her and Bradley, and what an ending - absolutely perfect in my opinion! This is a feel good story that will leave you smiling! CMS on October 27, 2016

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Totally Enjoyed!

I absolutely adored this story about Amber. She's such an endearing character and I could identify with her in many ways. A few times Amber made me laugh out loud - one particular reference about Chloe was a hoot! My favourite quotes: "For a hope to grow the ground needed to be watered and tended, and sadly that was something only love could accomplish," and "What does it matter what we look like on the outside, as long as our souls are free?" Just one more chapter! on October 18, 2016
