    2. The Rippled Affect by Shawn H. Phillips is a first read win and I am giving my honest opinion. At first I didn't like this book. It grew on me. So I upgraded the rating. This is a story about the different races that formed the world. You had humans, the shifters or dopplers and the elusive soul walkers. The dopplers decide to concentrate on the United States and leave the sub races to the rest of the world. The dopplers needed DNA from the other person to shift into them. The only ones that cou [...]

    3. Check out my blog to see Reviews of Books and Movies as well as Recipes and DIY projectsThe Doppler Affect is written by Shawn H. Phillips and features several different POVs throughout the story. There is an original Doppleganger aka Shapeshifter and a banker named Chris Sands. Dr. Phillips has created a story unlike any you have ever read. His combination of scientific explanations of mythology in the fiction arena are astounding. The characters are creative and original and each has their own [...]

    4. The Doppler Affect is about a race of beings called doppelgangers, better known in the book as dopplers. I was approached by the author to read and review this book, and while it sounded intriguing, I was cautious. I didn't necessarily think I wouldn't like the book, but I was worried because it was talking about something that I hadn't read a lot about. I just wasn't sure what to expect. Needless to say I was pleasantly surprised and can't wait to read the next book in the series. Christopher S [...]

    5. (I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, so here it comes)This book transports you into a world where what you think is real isn't and what you think isn't real, well, you're probably right, it probably isn't. Shapeshifters, or doppelgangers, are a mighty powerful race that manage to keep the lycanthropes, vampires, and other creatures under their power. They've managed to stay hidden while running their empire for a very long time, only using humans for the purpose of r [...]

    6. (I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).(This review may contain spoilers).It did take me a little longer than it would normally to finish this book, but once I was up to it, I found it a unique, entertaining read.Shapeshifters on their own aren't an original idea, but the way they were portrayed in this book was really unique. I felt the author did a good job of showing the science behind the shifting and what the race's characteristics were, without it coming across as a [...]

    7. I won a copy through the : First Reads program.Tl;dr version: Great premise. Good story. Bad characterization. Worse editing.I really, really need self-published and tiny-press authors to start investing in editors. This book was very interesting, but I found myself constantly dragged out of the story by all of the niggling grammatical errors. It starts with the title and goes right through the last chapter.Okay, now that's out of the way. This is a good story with an interesting premise. But it [...]

    8. What would you do if you discovered a copy of yourself~a doppelganger? This the main question posed by Christopher "Chris" Sands. He was implicated in a crime that he didn't commit. Only to discover later that the actual crime was committed by a doppelganger. Michael Sands never really knew his father and keeping a secret. Michael's secret is that spirits of the dead can take control of his body which he fights unlike his father. Michael is in a horrific accident that kills his best friend and h [...]

    9. I loved it. Matter of fact, because I was interrupted so many times while reading it, I am going to read it again on a trip. I really enjoyed the idea of the doppelgangers. I have read lots of fantasy and am always interested in shape changers. This book took it to a whole new height. I felt sorry or Chris Sands but he did leave his son a great clue. This book was just the right length. Now I hope we might get another one along these same lines. Thank you Mr. Phillips and for the free book.

    10. It has been a full year since I picked this book up and got about 12% though it. I hate to DNF a book that soon, but I just doubt that I'll get back to it since it's been a whole year and I obviously haven't cared to finish it. 2/5 stars instead of 1 because I feel I didn't give it a fair chance.

    11. Just up on my blog with pics and music! Do check it out especially if you're into scifi, fantasy and strange speciesbixlerpersonalopinionsp

    12. I received this book through the First Reads Giveaway back in August 2014. (My apologies to the author for not reading and reviewing it until now, January 2015.) I've tried to not include major spoilers in my review.Actual Rating: 3.5 stars (it finished strong, so I gave it 4 stars as doesn't allow half stars)The Doppler Affect details a race called doppelgangers, their attempts to control the human race and other supernatural races, and how Christopher and Michael Sands fought against them.Whe [...]

    13. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.I was torn with this book, I liked that it had a different take on the paranormal as I haven't read anything about Doppelgangers before. I liked that it was a Matriarchal society too. What I didn't like was how the story flowed. To start off with, it seems jumbled and the timeline is all over the place. The story jumps from different characters and timelines until almost half way through the book and then it [...]

    14. (Review in Progress)Okay, so In all honesty, I got so caught up in the first part of the description to this (with all the mythical creatures that have, in fact, been real all this time and they're the offspring of even more powerful Shapeshifters - how cool is that?!) that I totally didn't see the part in the last sentence which reads "feeding off the sexual desires of men" /:The little card thing included with my book (which is a really good idea and I like it!) notes that this book contains S [...]

    15. Shapeshifters Control Our Lives!The frightening power of vampires, werewolves, and lycanthropes has lived within our nightmares for centuries, failing to be reasoned out by the rapid advances in science and technology. The truth is that they are very much a part of our reality. However, they are merely the genetically inferior offspring of a more powerful race, known as doppelgangers, who evolved alongside humankind. These shapeshifters adopted a secretive yet manipulative approach when dealing [...]

    16. Christopher Sands is in prison for a crime he didn't commit. The problem is- there is video evidence to prove otherwise. Searching all possible reasons how it couldn't be him, he stumbles across doppelgängers. Convinced he is right he leaves all articles and proof he can find for his young son.Going between several points of view from both the Sands family and different doppelgängers, this is a book that needs a lot of concentration to remember what time and place you are reading in. While the [...]

    17. Received this book directly from the author and I glad I was able to read this book. This was the first book I have read about doppelgangers/shapeshifters. I loved that the book was broken up by day and went from the Doppelgangers then to the real world. After reading this book I freaked out and wondered do Doppelgangers really exist? That would be very scary to see someone that looks just like me and more odd is when people say I saw a person that looked just like you. As I read I started to ge [...]

    18. I won this book on (SOME SPOILERS HERE)Wowwhere to start? First off, I have to admit I didn't fully read the full explanation of the book and missed the part where the dopplers fed off of the human sex drive. That didn't really detract from the book, however, and I found myself able to enjoy the plot line. I was a bit concerned that the book was going to turn into light porn thanks to the feeding off of sex-drive issue. As said, not an issue. This isn't a "50 Shades of Gray" with sex on every ot [...]

    19. A must read for anyone looking for a book to challenge the mind. This is not your typical shapeshifter book. The Doppler Affect will definitely make you stop and think about how you view many things in this world. I did have a little trouble at the beginning of the book with the rapid switching back and forth of time periods, it might have been better to tell those parts as an introduction. Once you get into the heart of the story about Dopplergangers or Dopplers that have been working behind th [...]

    20. I received a review copy of this book from the author. This was a really different book!!Before reading, I thought yeahis will be something differentmething worth checking out.When I first started reading I really wasn't sure how to take it. The Doppler Affect was so different from anything I've read! I was really impressed with how this book had a different paranormal aspect than most. I LOVE THE IDEA of dopplegangers. REALLY REALLY love the idea! Overall, this was a great read. It was a little [...]

    21. Given To Me For An Honest ReviewThis book isn't a must read, it's a Have To Read. It is an amazing book. Although it isn't in my usual genre I am so glad I read it. Once I began I could not put it down. Talk about page turner. The story line really gives you something to think about. I can't even begin to explain the book in its entirety. It has shapeshifters, vampires and others included. It will really keeps you involved in the story. I can just say that Shawn Phillips did an outstanding job w [...]

    22. I was able to download this for my kindle on for free. (Thank you Shawn for the invite). I really ended up enjoying this book. At times I found it a little hard to follow, but still didn't want to put it down. The idea of doppelgangers taking over the US was brilliant. This was the first book I've read about doppelgangers and I enjoyed learning all about them. I'm hoping that the sequel picks back up with some of the same characters. I don't want to write too much more and ruin the book for oth [...]

    23. I received this book from the author for review. This book is a very interesting read. I found it was a little hard to get into but once you were there you want to continue reading to find out what happens. I really like how the author deals with the subject of the shape shifters it seems to be a very unique point of view. This book is a very solid read. I recommend to people who are looking for a different paranormal book.

    24. I won a copy from a giveaway.I found this book to have an interesting concept. It was a bit slow getting into, but it turned out to be a good book. I was a bit worried at first that this would be overly sexual, but it really wasn't. The writing style was decent, but I did find quite a few grammatical errors that need corrected. All in all, I enjoyed the book, but it could use some improvements.

    25. I won this book in a giveaway What a pleasant surprise the blurb and cover didn't lure me but the content was great.It was quite a mix up with sci-fi thriller,crime and even a bit of romance in there.Many thanks for the good read.

    26. Not to be mean, but if the author/editor can't even figure out the correct use of affect vs effect in the freakin' title I'm very worried about the rest of the book. :(

    27. Odd story; non-gratuitous sex scenes; clever premise; unnecessarily complicated?; rather appealing (human) characters.
