Shifter's EscapeShifter’s Escape (Purple Oasis #7)
by Laura Greenwood and Arizona Tape

My Rating: 4 stars

Genre: Paranormal Romance/ Post-apocalyptic
Age Category: New Adult
Type of romance: m/f

A princess in a tower, a daring escape, and a really annoying goose. What could possibly go wrong?

If there’s one thing raven shifter Morgan wants more than anything, it’s to leave the Nest and the tyrannical rule of her father, even if it means cutting ties with the only family she has left.

When Gus left Purple Oasis in search of the bird shifter paradise he’d been promised, he quickly discovered that the Nest wasn’t as idyllic as it first seemed.

After Morgan overhears Gus talking about wanting to leave, she finally thinks she might have the chance she needs to escape, but should she trust the goose shifter she’s never met before, or is it a trap set by her father?

Shifter’s Escape is part of the Purple Oasis paranormal romance series. It includes a sweet m/f romance involving a trapped raven shifter and a resourceful goose shifter.

If you enjoy light paranormal romances, coming-of-age storylines, post-apocalyptic settings, sweet moments, guaranteed happy endings, and casual magic systems, then start the Purple Oasis series today with Witch’s Trust.

My Review

I was in the mood to continue this series and picked up book 7. This book follows two bird shifters, Morgan who has a raven familiar and Gus who has a goose. They are both living in a place called the Nest, which is not a good place and they want to escape.

This book was a bit sad at times as the situation at the Nest is not good, especially as Purple Oasis is such a nice place, but it was uplifting to see this group escape and go to Purple Oasis so they can have a better future. Despite the Nest not being nice to read about, it was interesting to read more about it as it got mentioned in some previous books. And it just makes it even better that places like Purple Oasis exist.

I liked reading about Morgan and Gus, how they met and escape along with some others and the two of them form a connection. The main star of this book for me was Gus’ goose named Goose, he was such a character and he just made me smile every time he would honk or waddle around.

I thought the romance between Morgan and Gus did develop a bit fast, but I could feel their connection and liked them together. I just would’ve liked a bit more about them and how they are doing in Purple Oasis as the books ends shortly after they arrive there. I liked seeing Gus interact with his siblings Carly and Hugo, Carly already got her story and Hugo’s will be next.

To summarize: This was another fun read in this series. This one focuses a bit more the darker side of the apocalypse as we get to see how things are in The Nest. Morgan and Gus as well as some others are planning to escape from there and go to Purple Oasis. It was sad to see how the conditions are in The Nest, but the book still felt hopeful as well with them going to Purple Oasis. I liked reading about Morgan and Gus, I also liked them together and their connection was clear. I did feel their romance developed a bit quickly and would’ve loved a few more scenes with them together. For me Goose really was the star of this book, he was such a fun character and made me smile every time he appeared.
