Waiting on Wednesday: Mistwood by Leah Cypess

Mistwood by Leah Cypess (Published by Greenwillow, April 27, 2010)

Isabel is a shape-shifter, able to shift at will into any animal form. She senses that her power is great. She knows—deep in her soul—that she exists only to protect the king and the royal family. But when she awakens in Mistwood to the sound of approaching horses, she can’t remember anything and she flees. How long has she been in the forest? Who hurt her? Why is she hiding—because it is certain she is hiding. Who are these men riding after her with such determination? And most importantly, why can’t she shift?
Captured and thrust into the mysterious and dangerous royal court, Isabel must uncover her past, separate the truth of her heart from the legend of her magic, and, above all, keep the unbearably handsome new king safe. Even if protecting him means disaster for her.

This book is another 2010 debut author book and it sounds like it will be a really good YA fantasy! I love fantasy novels set in Medieval type worlds with castles and kingdoms and magic. And the plot sounds really good.
