Mitch arrives in a small town, controlled by werewolves, the night before a full moon. Walking to his motel room, he encounters a young man being battered by four werewolves in human form. Mitch rescues the young man and manages to get him to the safety of the forest so they can shift into their cougar form and give the bruises time to heal faster. Recovered enough to travel the next day, the young man Todd leaves town with Mitch, mutually in search of a nonviolent existence.

Journey to Compromise is a fantastic shifter short story. The plot is well written and well paced. The characters are appealing. Mitch is drifting from place to place in search of work after his company closed and his long term relationship ended. However, he is not bitter about his circumstances; he continues to look forward to a flourishing income again. Mitch is an honorable man and he is very attracted to Todd. Nevertheless, he refuses to take advantage of Todd’s magnetism. Todd, like Mitch, is good natured and hard working. Their personalities are similar in temperament, although Todd is a little more persistent when it comes to expressing his sensual needs. Mara Ismine’s Journey to Compromise is an amazing story that I thoroughly enjoyed.
