I really enjoyed this book. It is wonderfully written and well developed. I really felt for the Virmal character.

*I received a copy of this book for free in exchange for an honest review. ( )

This proved to be an interesting book. I read the first one and this one. I wished I would have read Book 2 as well. I like how the different groups were solitary but when they needed help, they got together to save all. "When you hurt one, you hurt all..." I would recommend this series to all fantasy lovers.

This is the third book in The Shadow Wars Trilogy and the first one I read. However, the story was handle in such a way that you do not need to read the other books first, but there are references to earlier situations that would be more meaningful if you read them. I enjoyed the world of the clans, which represented humans with different animal souls living among normal humans. Each clan had distinctive differences from the others coloring their actions in and out of the clan. In addition, magicians are part of the world, as well, throwing wrenches into the already complex clan interactions. Anyone who reads this book will find themselves wanting to read to other tales to round out this interesting world. ( )

War Among the Crocodiles by Leah Cutter is the third book in a fantasy trilogy about various groups of supernatural beings living in the human world. I thought that the writing itself was very good, but the layout of the story and the plot were lacking. The book is broken into four parts: a long introduction, introduction to main characters and important settings, escalating plot and climax, and epilogue.

The first part starts off very slowly, following a witch named Yvette. The early chapters about her mostly boring and do not really seem applicable to the rest of the plot. The second part is very choppy, switching between several people and places while only giving tiny glimpses into their lives. We are shown members of different clans of shapeshifters around the world and their struggles since the previous catastrophe. By the middle of the second part, I kind of knew what the book was supposed to be about. By the end of the second part, the main villains, a group of evil magicians, had shown themselves and had started killing people important to the clan members the book was following. The third part started with more people dying and the main characters deciding to head towards the clans which had lead the attack on the last enemies. They meet up and share information and start to prepare to fight by having Yvette make special mirrors which seem to block the evil magicians. They decide to bait a trap for the evil magicians using Yvette as bait. The trap is sprung, and it seems like everyone but one lonely tiger shifter dies. The fourth part shows that the tiger shifter chose to continue to live without his friends and family and is taking care of Yvette's land.

Overall, I did not enjoy the choppiness of the story, and it seemed like the author withheld too much information about key points like how the heroes knew to use the mirrors to defeat the enemies. It was also a very long and slow story with lots of extra information not necessary to the plot. ( )

War Among the Crocodiles is the third book in the Shadow Wars Trilogy. The events in this book take place before and after the events in the first two books. The story takes place in an alternate world where shapeshifting clans such as serpents, tigers and boars, and human wizards live among unsuspecting humans.

The books shifts in point of view from chapter to chapter from various characters, members of different clans as well as wizards. The different story-lines begin when the characters are children and are just learning about their powers and abilities. It continues through the events of the first two books and the war with the Shadows (although only lightly touching on that war). After the war, the clans have been weakened by the fight with the Shadows and are easy prey to corrupt human wizards who eat their knowledge, powers and even their souls. The warriors who fought in the Shadow war, as well as new allies, will need to find a way to trust each other, and band together to defeat this new threat.

A reader new to this world can discover how the shapeshifting clans work while the children discover who they are and how to use their powers. Although it would be better to have read the first two books, the author explains the world of the clans and wizards well enough to enjoy this book as a stand-alone. There are a lot of characters, perhaps too many to become really attached to any of them. The fragmented nature of the book also makes the story move along fairly slowly at first. The build up to the initial shadow war and it’s briefly described conclusion could be disappointing to readers who haven’t read the first two books, but anything more would have been redundant to those already invested in the series. The Soul-eaters are an interesting new variation on an evil wizard/psychic vampire. They are selfish and almost childish in their need to suck up all the knowledge they can without actually working for it, or even using it well. The author touched on themes of consuming knowledge for the sake of consumption as well when to chose to stand by and watch while evil happens and when to act. Much of the novel takes place during and after the Cultural Revolution in China which added more depth to these themes.

I have read other works by this author and have enjoyed her sometimes dark and quirky characters. I think I would have enjoyed this work more if their had been perhaps a few less main characters (or if the novel had been a bit longer) so that I had enough time to really get to know and become invested in all the characters. No content inappropriate YA readers. ( )
