SKIN DEEP was the first book by Ayer that I have had the privilege to read. I really enjoyed the detail and the buildup on the story. Ayer gives us a world of Shape Shifters and other unworldly things that go bump in the night. I savored the whole mystery of the story and loved being able to play detective right along with the characters.In the beginning I felt there was a bit too much going on and not enough answers. The author would introduce one obstacle after another and I kind of felt it wa [...]
T.G. Ayer has once again sucked me in to one of her magical worlds. A world where panther shape-shifter Kailin Odel, does her best to protect her community from soul sucking Wraiths; a world where shape-shifters, mage’s, and all manner of old and new paranormal beings live amongst us in relative secrecy. But someone is killing shifters, decimating the bodies and drawing attention to a world the Para’s want to keep secret; need to keep hidden from the regular population.Tee has a talent for w [...]
In a world of shapeshifters and other mystical creatures, an alpha puma shifter is sucked into a mystery of the murders of shifters in her city, with the aid of a local cop she raises to find the killer before it's too late. The story starts right off the bat with a pretty disturbing set of scenes that set a dark tone to the entire novel. Warning: There are graphic torture scenes in this novel, not for the feint of heart. I have a few problems with this novel. Lets start with the plot and the st [...]
The plot of this story definitely held my interest. The characters were also great to read about. The downfall for me was that there was too much introduced at the beginning and the changing POV without any notification. It would sometimes get me confused. Overall I'd say this is a 3.5.

Disclaimer: I gave up at 60 pages remaining. I am baffled by the good reviews of this book, and disappointed. I'll give you the problems I had.1. Characters: I didn't care about them, there was very little to no development, and they were flat. They also did not act their age seemed like they were written to be adults, but suddenly they were teenagers. What?2. Plot: decent but other problems destroyed any interest I might have had. It felt a little piecemeal and random, but I was reading it over [...]
So i just got reading Skin Deep by T.G. Ayer, its the first book I've read by this author. With this being the first book I've ever read from Ayer, and this being the first book in the series, I think it's time to start my review.Kailin a alpha panther shifter and wraith Hunter, lives an almost solitary life; except for the few friends she has and her job and the counseling center. One night after a wraith fight, Kailin comes across a horrific sight. Someone being thrown out of a car at high spe [...]
Skin Deep (Dark World #1) by T.G. Ayer Alpha/Panther Shape-shifter Kailin Odel moved away from her clan to live with her Grandmother in Chicago. While on a mission killing Wraith, she comes across a murdered shape-shifter and becomes involved in the case. One of the things that drew my attention to this book that it takes place in Chicago. Being a Chicagoan, I appreciate books that take place here. That being said, the book could really take place anywhere, but that is okay. Kailin is a determ [...]
Skin Deep by TG AyerI received this book in exchange for a honest unbiased review~~~~~WOW!!! This is the first book I read by this author. What can I not say about this amazing book. This is a Supernatural action mystery and romance read! It is very fast paced with captivating characters. I love the unseen twists and turns and also the amazing secrets hid within. The characters are intriguing and loveable. I adore Kailin she is a bad to the bone kick butt heroine panter shifter. Have I said how [...]
Skin Deep is the story of Kailin Odel, a panther shifter of alpha blood who spends her days counseling teens with substance abuse problems and her nights as a wraith hunter. While returning from a hunt one night she witnesses a body being dumped in the garden behind her place of employment. The body turns out to be the skinned body of a cougar walker, and finding this body is only the beginning. Kai, as her friends call her, is led down a dark path toward a surprising realization that had me gas [...]
EnjoyableThis story had a little mystery, a budding love connection, a slow revealing background, good fight scenes and a quest. All these things lead to a good book. I was a little confused at times regarding the main characters age but other than that I think this is a series worth looking into. It does continue on to another book but I felt that it had enough closure in this one that it didn't end with an annoying cliffhanger.
Baffled by the other reviewsOverall I liked the concept, but this book has issues. Poor character development and the story is all over the place. Really bad plotting going on here. Characters were impossible to picture in my head and very shallow. I literally forced myself to slow down my reading, thinking that I was missing something, but no, it just wasn't there to be found.The good reviews seem canned. I doubt they are legit.
Kick ass book featuring a wraith hunting Skin-Walker heroine. Definitely grab it if you like your urban fantasy with a side of romance. My fav TG Ayer title yet.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book. The books I have read by this s author previously I have loved! The more I read her work the more I completely fall under the spell of her books. I absolutely adored this book and I can't wait to get my hands on the next one!!!This storyline is amazing!!! So addictive to read and it definitely leaves you wanting more! I loved how the authors imagination shines through in this story, that along with the vivid imagery you are given throu [...]
I received a copy of this book at no cost from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.Another in a string of strong stories by TG Ayer. I have to admit, Skin Deep got off to a bit of a slower start than most of her other books that I've read, but once the story really got underway - which didn't take too long - it was a very enjoyable ride.Skin Deep is part of Ayer's Dark World universe, an alternate take on our world in which a number of various paranormal creatures live mostly hidden a [...]
I liked the fact that this book was different from the usual shifter books. Not only because of the identity of the main protagonist (a panther shifter) and the wide range of other shifters we see in the book (including Lynx, fox, leopard and wolf), but because it's not about JUST the shifter identity. I won't go into details of what it IS about (you can get the basics above and I don't want to give any more spoilers away!), but the story is a fantastic read on its own, and the shifter and super [...]
Skin Deep: A SkinWalker Novel #1( DarkWorld: SkinWalkerI had a hard time getting started at the the beginning, there was so much being introduced all at one time that I couldn't follow what going on, but I decided to continue to read it because I always believe in giving authors a chance unless it's really horrible after a certain chapter and then I just put the book down.But, I am so glad 😁 I continued with this book because T. G. Ayer really did a great job at being able to put all introduc [...]
This was my introduction into this author's work. I tried to read another book by this author and then was informed I was better to start here and I'm glad I did because more things made sense! I went in expecting a typical shifter story but this was not the case at all! I loved the main character Kailin who was such an interesting character. The side characters are good as well and I got so into the story I found myself flinching and gasping at certain parts of the story. There is so much going [...]
While waiting for a novel in another one of this author's series I grabbed this one. I enjoy the freshness of her writing so much. I right away knew I had made the right choice in picking one of her books because even though Kailin is a shifter she is not your average one by no means. She is such a interesting character right away she has plunged me into this suspenseful adventure with her. This world is there but not with few knowing but it does effect those that do not know. now it gets my att [...]
Skin Deep, first book of the Skin Walker series, is a well-written story that at its heart is about the struggle between good and evil for dominance over the world. It introduces us to the main character, Kailin, a Skinwalker who leaves her pack to fulfill her destiny as a Wraith Hunter. But there is much more to Kai and as the story unfolds we get more and more information which only deepens the mystery. The world is developing before us, and the supporting characters each have a story to tell. [...]
This is such an original and unique urban fantasy. I love strong female characters and Kailin is perfect! She is such a fun character with her kick-a attitude, intelligence, and a vulnerable side. These traits make her realistic and lovable. Logan is the detective who is working on the mystery that Kailin finds herself facing. The story is high in action and excitement, with the perfect blend of budding romance between Kailin and Logan. I loved this story and I am excited to continue the series. [...]
(This was a part of the "Legends of the Damned" collection) I enjoyed this story so much! Very well thought out world with lots of different things going on. And it's a very long book - I'm not used to fantasy type books like this being so meaty, but it's definitely a nice change (just hope they continue to be like this, sometimes an author starts out with nice thick books with plenty of story to fill it and then start shortening the books until they are half the original size) I'm hooked to fin [...]
Good beginning to a new paranormal series.By HD on June 18, 2017Format: Kindle Edition|Verified PurchaseI enjoyed this book. It was a little difficult for me to really get into it at the beginning, but once I did it became much more interesting. I like the characters and the good verses evil thing. A lot of the problems and action seemed a little disjointed. And there are a lot of problems. It makes an interesting read. It's first in a series and there is a cliffhanger, but enough was resolved t [...]
When wanting something to read about skinwalkers I did not think of this book being what it was. It was so much better! I liked how it came together and was a better twist on skinwalkers than what you would think the name implied. It is so hard not to give anything away in the book since it was so good and all I want to do is talk about the story and what happens. So with that I will just say get your copy sit down and get comfy and enjoy a great story!
Un livre rempli d'action et de surprise. J'ai cru plusieurs fois que la fin du livre approchait pour me rendre compte, que je me trompais totalement, un nouvel évènement survient et nous emporte vers un autre combat.C'est bien écrit. Entrainant. Les personnages sont attachants et bien définit. Il y de l'action mais aussi de la passion. Des liens familiaux difficiles mais qui évoluent dans le temps.Une belle découverte.
I wanted to like this book and I think the story is actually a great one, but the writing is terrible. The point of view jumps around without warning, and it's like entire scenes are just completely missing when suddenly someone is referring to something like we were all supposed to know it occurred, but there was no actual occurrence of it in the book. I finally gave up trying to slog through this way-too-long story at about 75% done. I didn't even care what happened to the characters anymore.
I love skinwalker books and this first in the series is awesome. The author has more going on than the standard animal/human species books. This one is set in real time real world Chicago. It has the characters living regular lives, while also performing changing form and performing magic and protecting unknowing humans from wraiths, who steal their bodies and eat their souls. I recommend this as a must read for all paranormal genre fans.
Great read!I had to give 4 stars. This was a great read. It kept me wanting more. There were some grammar issues due to editing I imagine but that is the only thing that kept this from being perfect! I will be looking forward to reading more on the series and more from this amazing author!
I enjoyed reading this book. This is the second series I've started by this author so far, and I found it an enjoyable read. It is dark and contains feline shifters, adventure, intrigue and plenty of danger. If you are a fan of paranormal books that contain any or all of these elements, I recommend you give this series a try.
