In The Portal & The Panther, Jon Parker is seventeen years old, and has lived a pretty normal life so far. That is, until one day he starts feeling ill at school, escapes to the boys’ bathroom, and transforms into a panther. His entire world is turned upside down when he realizes humanity isn’t the only group populating earth. Shapeshifters exist, and he’s far from the only person who can change into a panther or another animal. Apart from shapeshifters, there are also “intruders” who can control the elements with just a thought. Layla, a fellow shapeshifter, helps him adjust to his new world, and his new powers. Along with her help, Jon must protect the world from aliens invading it from other worlds. Then a girl from his class, Kristin, who he’s always had a crush on, gets involved, and suddenly his mission turns a lot more dangerous and he risks hurting the girl he loves. There’s a bit of a love triangle going on between Layla, Jon and Kristin, but I didn’t mind that much. Each character is likeable in their own way, particularly Jon. He’s flawed, suffers from a less-than-perfect childhood, and he’s easy to relate to. Layla is tough, but at the same time she had a vulnerable side too. And Kristin seems like your typical girl next door, but she has more courage than you’d give her credit for at first. The story is engaging and well-written, and the characters shine on the pages. The world-building is impressive, and I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

    Great fantasy story with engaging characters! I've always loved fantasy books with real life problems in them, and the way R.A. writes about it and creates the suspense between the characters made it hard to put the book down. Some people tend to avoid books with high-school themes, but I actually like it, this feeling of returning to your teen years (I only wish there were shapeshifters in my school too ha ha).

Some people tend to avoid books with high-school themes, but I actually like it, this feeling of returning to your teen years (I only wish there were shapeshifters in my school too ha ha). When you finish reading a book and feel like you have a couple more friends, characters that you want to know more about, that are believable and funny and well-defined, this is the best thing you can get from a book. After all, you will only care for the story if you care for the characters. R.A. did a great job exploring their personalities and giving a deep insight into their relationships. And, of course, I got a great portion of awesome fight scenes in this book! I absolutely loved those, especially, together with shapeshifting (and yes, panther has always been my favorite cat^^) If you're a fan of urban fantasy, you should definitely check out this book!

    The Portal and the Panther introduces us to Jon, a high school kid in a small town who discovers that he's a shifter (someone who can turn into animals) As he tries to process this new information about himself, he finds himself in the middle of a war between shifters and invaders from another dimension.

I really enjoyed this book. It was fast paced and gripping. The main character is well written and likeable. He and his emotions feel real. There are a variety of twists and turns and a budding love triangle. The opening scene is especially strong, as is the description of his first 'change'. The supporting characters weren't placeholders either. They had dimension and I actually got a feel for their personalities. It's well written and despite wishing that the character paid more attention, it felt more real that he zoned out. Also much kudos for writing a gay character without stereotyping or feeling the need to constantly mention it. Highly recommend

    For a free book on Amazon, this was not what I expected. It was a fun read, some parts were cliche but I enjoyed the unfolding of the mystery surrounding both sets of parents and the coming into your identify theme. Pretty good summer reading fun

His relation with the Wolf sees hatred on two levels but he is the boss. I've started 'Girl between worlds' and am having trouble with another protagonist telling her story.

    A unique shifter story. It was ok but not a series I personally would get into.

    Exciting coming of age/shifter story. I enjoyed the confusion and anger of the main character, because it’s exactly how I would have reacted if this had happened to me. I find some books have the people way to accepting of stuff that it’s unrealistic. I think the author did a good job of keeping things realistic. The only thing I didn’t like was the ending. I hate cliffhanger endings, especially when the ending doesn’t leave my imagination enough to work with to make things end up ok. I admit it, Exciting coming of age/shifter story.

Except for the ending, the book was very interesting and had a good mythological background. I give this book 4 out of 5 clouds.

    A superb book. Jon has been ostracized by his peers at high school because of a malicious lie. And, if that wasn't enough, he discovers that he can change into a panther. He is part of a group of shapeshifters who guard "The Portal", a gate into alternate universes. It has been dormant for 10 years but that is about to change. A superb book.
