Chance has a secret of his own. While I was pretty sure what it was going to be, it was interesting watching it play out Ana has a life-threatening heart condition, that makes her life very different than most teenagers. While I was pretty sure what it was going to be, it was interesting watching it play out and Ana learning it. The ending was good, but very predictable. The moment a couple of things were mentioned earlier in the book I had a very strong feeling they were going to play a part in the ending I still would like to continue with the series and see where things go.

Welcome Natasha Brown and her Shapeshift Chronicles Series
They refuse to let anyone or anything that this crazy thing called life throws at them, get in their way of being together. They end up in a fight for their lives When I came across Fledgling by Natasha Brown I automatically assumed that, because this was the 1st book in the Shapeshifter Chronicles, it was about werewolves.
I'm always on the look out for a good werewolf book that I can pass on to my niece. She loves them and at times I love to tease her about them! However, I was pleasantly surprised that this was actually NOT about werewolves but actual shapeshifters that can pretty much turn into any animal of their choosing.
I enjoyed her twist of shapeshifters.

I have to admit that I was sucked in from the beginning and knew about half way through that I needed to grab the second book on the series because I would want to start it right away. This is definitely a series that I will be passing on to my niece! I know that she will enjoy it as much as I did! View all 3 comments. Aug 19, David Chittenden rated it it was amazing. A comment on Maki's review: I work in the field of disabilities, and the author has the main character's reactions about wanting to hide her medical problems, no matter how life threatening, absolutely spot-on.
This is especially true for teens, but just about everyone does stupid things and makes bad decisions to try and fit in rather than standing out.
And, normal people are very good at isolating anyone who is different, so we have a very strong motivator to appear normal, no matter how diffe A comment on Maki's review: I work in the field of disabilities, and the author has the main character's reactions about wanting to hide her medical problems, no matter how life threatening, absolutely spot-on.

It's unimaginative, unoriginal, and the characters are very shallow. Nov 19, Bookmom rated it liked it. Ana has a serious heart condition. The eighteen year old is shy, does not want anyone new to know about her heart and takes pains to hide her surgery scar.
He too is keeping a secret. The family relationships are very strong; possibly too strong for the ages of the kids involved. Hormones and teenage angst appear to be missing. But the story moves kind of slow with a number of repeat scenes. There were so many things I loved about Natasha Brown's Fledgling. The author has a true talent for prose.
I was captivated by her lovely use of language. It added so much to an already enjoyable read. The two main characters, Chance and Ana, truly fall in love the old fashioned way. I appreciated this because it's very unique for a YA Paranormal. Their romance is sweet. At first they are so unsure of themselves, but as the story moves forward, they forge a bond that will see them through some amazing challenges. And it's believable, because the author gives the romance time to bloom and flourish. Halfway through the book, Natasha Brown makes a smooth transition into building the action of the story.

Up until this point, the paranormal aspects of the book are only hinted at. But once the action builds, the reader is taken on a roller coaster ride that thrills and excites. The shapeshifter lore that the author creates is both unique and intriguing. I'm very interested in seeing where that will lead! Fledgling is a beautifully crafted story and a fantastic read for any age. I eagerly await the second installment in the series! A lover of paranormal I am and while not normally a fan of Young Adult, I took a chance and read this book.
I am happy to say, I am glad I took the chance. A very solid written book with descriptions that allow you to perfectly see the scene in the writer's mind and feel the emotions of the characters as they move through their story. The characters were believable along with even the paranormal aspects.

The plot was deep enough to very much satisfy my mind and kept me guessing as to exactly how it would end. While this book runs the lines of young adult, it is more of a cross over as the characters are becoming adults and the story will continue into their future. I also enjoyed the Native American ties to this book, as I have been a lover of that history for many years.
I look forward to seeing what Ms. Brown brings to us in the next installment of the Chronicles. Surviving her serious heart condition is the life Ana has ever known until her family moves to a new town and she meets Chance. Instantly drawn to his intense hazel eyes Ana easily falls under his spell, though is afraid to ruin their newfound relationship by revealing the seriousness of her heart condition.
