Fledgling: The Shapeshifter Chronicles (Volume 1)
5 Stars: Fledgling is a very well rounded story bringing contemporary issues to the paranormal table. It had me reading for hours with its wonderful characters and enchanting world-building. This is on my 'to read often' pile and have done so at least three times!
Natasha Brown has created a story about an independent girl named Ana and a boy named Chance. Ana meets Chance after moving to Clarks Bend. She has a heart condition that hampers her ability to live life to the fullest. It's shadow on her life keeps her on the sidelines until she moves. Although she doesn't know it, Chance has a deep secret that will lead them into great adventures and many more secrets.
Can he save her from the disease or will she keep it hidden from him until it's too late?
Set apart from other eighteen year olds, Ana Hughes knows she is different. A life threatening heart condition smothers her future and she yearns to feel normal. Her hopes are pinned on a
fresh start in a remote town far from her native Colorado. Among the locker filled hallways in Clark Bend High, Ana keeps to the shadows, not wanting to draw attention to her violet tinged lips and wilted silhouette. And she almost succeeds, until she meets Chance Morgan.
Struggling to keep up appearances, she soon suspects Chance is hiding something as well. His
animal-like senses, miraculous healing ability and peculiar reaction to her Thunderbird necklace compels Ana to question if there's more to the stories about his Navajo ancestry. Without any other explanation, she fears he is playing tricks on her. But the truth may prove too much for Ana's delicate heart...
