3.5 stars. Magic Shifts was enjoyable, but I'm beginning to tire of the same lines over and over. Specifically the ones where Kate and Curran gush over each other, Kate thinks about how much she loves Curran, the color Curran's eyes turn when he is angry or beasting out, and how powerful and ferocious he his. As far as the overall story goes, this was a lot of filler with very little plot movement. The biggest plot development comes near the end when Kate finally gets an idea of how to defeat Roland. I'm definitely ready to move on to the endgame between Kate and Roland.
