But you have probably already read/watched it...Yeah I've read it, one of my favourite books actually but haven't mentioned it because the shapeshifting gets almost forgotten a 1/3 of the way through the book
There's also Graven, which doesn't have a main character per se but has a shapeshifter as one of the key major characters. Great story, too.
And there's The Ogre's Pendant, in which one of the two main characters is a shapeshifter. Also a fantastic story.
If you hate stupid MCs, you shouldn't have a problem with any of these - all feature competent, intelligent characters.
And I second Doing God's Work with great passion. It's currently my #2 favorite fic on all of Royal Road, and that's a high bar to clear because there's a lot of books on the site that I quite dig. The shapeshifting doesn't start for a while due to plot reasons, but later on it gets kinda crazy.
