Stolen Magic

Stolen Magic by Marina Finlayson

An alternate world urban fantasy.

In a world where there are ordinary humans, shapers who control elements such as fire, and shifters (shapeshifters), our narrator burglarizes the mayor's home in revenge for something he did to a friend, with her own little greatly concealed talent of working with beasts.  Even though she is in hiding there, along with Syl, a cat shifter who hasn't left cat form since they arrived.

Shortly thereafter, two boys get lost, a prominent shaper shows up in town, a strange lion-shifter makes trouble at the local bar, and actions really begins.  Briskly moving tale, full of adventure.
