this was my first book by Margo Bond Collins and my first snake shifter. It was different. I was not sure about it when i first saw it but a friend told me to give it a try that Margo usually did good stories. The start was a little slow but afterwards the story was pretty good. As i said, it was different. The story was about Lynd who was a snake shifter. She was found when she was young by her adopted father, who worked with snakes. He brought her home not knowing she was a shifter. He thought she was a snake until he found a toddler where the snake had been and then saw her change. She finds out she is a certain type of shifter that other shifters are supposed to eliminate. However, she proves herself to all the shifters. I received the audio book free for an honest opinion.

I've listened to two of Margo Bond Collins's books in the past, and really enjoyed them. They were both unique and Under Her Skin was no different. When I first noticed this was shifter story about weresnakes, I was thinking this couldn't be a good story. But when I noticed the author was Margo Bond Collins, I knew if anyone could pull off a story about weresnakes, it would be her. This was one of the reasons I requested to listen to this story. The other reason, I like supporting new and up and coming authors and narrators. After listening, I'm convinced Collins is a very talented author, Under Her Skin is an unusual shifter story, with drama, suspense and some romance.
Lindi was raised by an adoptive family. Her adoptive father worked with snakes and brought home a snake to study but was stunned the next day when he see's a little toddler. Since that day, she's been with her adoptive family and believes she is the only shifter. She's all grown up and has learned to control her shifter side. Lindi works with children as a counselor to help them recover from traumatic events. Her newest case brings her face to face with a little girl who's just killed someone in self defense. What surprises Lindi is this little girl is actually a shifter too, but what kind she doesn't know. She takes the little girl to the hospital to be examined to be sure she wasn't hurt and comes face to face with Dr. Kade Nevala. A shifter himself, he confronts Lindi behind closed doors and tells her he knows what she is, but it's his job to kill her kind. He doesn't because they have chemistry and are attracted to each other at first sight. When shifter children start turning up dead, they end up working together and start falling for each other.
The writing was good, and the story kept me engaged but sadly Collins was not able sway me to the snake shifter side….. maybe it's my repulsion for snakes. However, if you love shifter stories, and want to dip into a world full of different types of shifters, then you may want to consider this unusual shifter story. As for me, I still on the fence if I will continue the series. I was voluntarily provided this free review audiobook copy by the author, narrator, or publisher.
