Transformed by E.V. Fairfall
Publication date: January 1st 2014
Genres: Paranormal, Romance, Young Adult
Thea, all-mighty Mother Earth, only had one rule to follow above all else, one promise to keep to her brother: never take a human form. She would’ve kept that promise if it weren’t for Brice. He’s handsome and confident, but above all he’s merciless.
He’s also a hunter who has tormented Thea for years. She believes if she could teach Brice compassion, she might finally be able to save her creations and herself from his savage ways. Then she meets Chamber: another hunter.
She soon finds herself fascinated by−and torn between−the two boys: Brice and Chamber. Lost within a torrent of human emotions, Thea starts to lose who she is as she falls in love with the one thing that she’s always hated: a hunter… a human.
Many, many years ago two beings of light crash landed on the Earth, destroying everything. The Earth gave them a new form and they set to work re-creating everything that had been destroyed. After millions of years, the humans they created know them as God and Mother Earth. Mother Earth roams the world as an animal form, often being hunted and killed only to reappear in another part of the world that needs her help. After re-incarnating for several hundred years on the Willipord property, she decides that she must do something drastic to change their ways of over-hunting. Her brother, God, has forbid her from taking human form, but she decides to do just this. If she can make a WIillipord boy fall in love with her as a human and then shoot her as an animal, maybe they will change their ways.
I loved the premise of this book, Mother Earth taking a human form, named Thea, in order to change human's relationship with nature. I also liked that Thea did not know much of being human or human emotions. It was very different getting to read about someone experiencing jealously, shame, and love for the first time. Also, Thea's brother, God was painted in a very different light. At the mention of God, I thought this book might have some overly religious tones and themes. However, this God is secretive and deceitful, especially with Thea. For me, this secret was where the book picked up. The plot moved a little slowly in the middle as Thea vied for the attention of the Willipord boy, Brice, that she originally chose to have fall in love with her and his cousin, Chambers. Of course there is a love triangle. Brice is rude and untrustworthy, but Thea decides to stick to her plan of seducing him even though she has had actual feeling for Chambers, who is sweet, helpful and trustworthy. So, even though it takes a while to get to the drama and make the change that Thea wanted originally, Transformed offered an original plot with some unexpected twists and a big love triangle in the middle.
This book was received for free in return for an honest review.

About the Author:
I love to write just as much as I love to read. I try to read a book per week, which doesn’t always work out, but it’s the thought that counts. Aside from all that I am a huge animal person.
Transformed is my first novel, but it isn't my first publication; I've had several short stories published over the last two years. My main goal as a writer is to explore humanity and to give people something fun to read.
