The Shifter by Janice Hardy

Nya is an orphaned girl with a strange and powerful talent. She tries to keep the talent secret, for if anyone finds out she could be in danger. Unfortunately, she must learn to use her talent when her sister, among dozens of other children, vanishes. She learns about a terrible plot, puts those she loves in danger, and must fix the other wrongs she's done.

As she faces impossible odds, she discovers her talent is even more powerful, and more dangerous, than she thought before.

This was a wonderful book that had an interesting plot and exciting storyline. While I read, I often wondered if everything would turn out right, and was alternately relieved and horrified at the turn of events, and always surprised by Nya's talents. Hopefully I can get Bluefire, the second book. I can't wait to see what happens next!
