Title: Fledgling
Series: The Shapeshifter Chronicles, #1
Author: Natasha Brown
Rating: 3 Shooting Stars

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…

Fledgling begins when Ana moves to a new town because her mother got laid off, and to hopefully help her heart condition. She knows her heart is getting worse, and things aren't looking very good for her. But she wants to make the best of it, and be normal for a while. Especially when she meets Chance at her new school. He actually wants to be around her, and she can't help but let him in. They form a quick friendship that builds to a beautiful romance. Chance and Ava together was the best part of the whole story, their relationship was so beautiful. I loved it! Once Ava tells Chance her secret she suspects he's keeping a secret as well. But his secret is a whole lot different than her's was, it could even be dangerous... 

 I have to say over all the book was okay. I really enjoyed it until about seventy percent, then it felt like it went down hill quickly. I felt like there was a change in Chance that wasn't good. And I just sort of felt like the story fell flat, other than that the writing was good. And the side characters were okay, but the main greatness of the story was Chance, and Ava's relationship. It was truly beautiful, and it was the main reason why I liked the book. I don't think I will be reading the next book, but I did like this one while I read it.
