Shifting stories is a collection of short stories in the Mercy Thompson universe. Many of the stories were previously published and were brought together for this compilation. However, there are a few stories that were newly published. In one way this made it easier to read all the side stories to this universe without having to go find and/or purchase a wide variety of books. In another way, this seems like another way of getting money out of a successful urban fantasy author.
I had not previously read any of these stories, with the exception of Alpha and Omega. I have previously reviewed this separately and I skipped over reading it in this book.
The stories are short highlights of the Mercy Thompson world. Many of the stories feature characters that only show up briefly in the main series. It is was a great way to see the world from other character's perspectives. There is also a story that focuses on Ben and another that focuses on Warren. Neither of these were mind exploiting explorations into these characters. However, they were fun reads.
