Product Description

Product Description

Emergent, book 3 in the series releasing early Spring of 2014!

FLEDGLING was a finalist in the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers Contest and is inspired by the author’s own daughter who was born with heart defects.

What People Are Saying-

"Love, Love, Love this book!
I really enjoyed this book. The romance was slow paced yet beautifully crafted. Its refreshing to see young adults taking their time to know each before assuming an instant relationship. The heroine learns to accept her dire circumstances and approaches life with new found hope. The hero is patient, yet willful and strong, when it comes to taking care of all he holds dear. Together they have a natural and loving bond, that will gracefully transcend into the years to come."

"I had a great time reading this book! ... I didn't see that coming!"

"I am a firm believer that you can never hear too many good things and I just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed your book... I can not wait to see what you have next. I hope you intend to finish the sequel/series. I hate not knowing how things end."


Look for Book 2 in the Shapeshifter Chronicles, Prodigy- available NOW!

Book Description:

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…

Excerpt from FLEDGLING:

"Ana continued fading in and out of awareness. Relinquishing to the nothingness that engulfed her, she had the impression of movement. She heard heavy breathing, which she determined wasn’t coming from her, sounding more like snorting. She sensed herself hanging, her body limp, unwilling to forfeit control back to her wandering mind. As though she was observing everything from a distance, it felt like she was at the end of a darkened hallway, being pulled back into a hollow chasm. Inky fingers entwined her mind until there was nothing left."

A special code is provided at the back of the book, for 'the lost chapter' from Fledgling. Be sure to check it out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fledging the Nest: Fledgling by Natasha Brown 26 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
The relationship created by Natasha Brown in 'Fledgling', between Chance and Ana is very realistic, not like those created by authors set to Stephanie Meyer and LJ Smith. Relationship develops a reasonable rate, not too quick, not too fast, as the story progresses. However the relationship is very exciting in the beginning but lags slightly as the book advances, until the critical moments arrive.
Ana is a lovely character and highlights, how difficult it is doing normal things (that we take for granted) can be, for those with heart problems and other difficulties.
Chance's character does not fully develop until the end but this encourages the reader to read on and find out more about him.
The supporting characters create a feel of normality and emphasise the problems that families with children who have medical difficulties face.
Without giving too much away, the supernatural element of the novel is very good and obviously well thought out. Although the idea is not entirely original, Brown has done well to make it her own.
The atmosphere created by Brown out this book is commendable. It is as though a kind of warmth is seeping through the pages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Natural magic 3 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The heart, both as physical necessity and symbol of love, plays a central role in this beautiful story. Teenage Ana's heart is failing, as the doctor tells her at the beginning of the book. Although physically weak Ana is encouraged by her loving mother and sister to lead as normal a life as possible. Ana's small family is powered by love and by the fear of losing her, a situation expertly described by Natasha Brown. All the characters really came alive for me. I felt as if I knew them, sharing their disappointment as Ana's condition continues to deteriorate. And then...... well...I dare not spoil the plot, or even hint at what happens. This book is the first in 'The Shapeshifter Chronicles' which is a clue. Let's just say that as described by Natasha Brown what occurs seems completely possible. The descriptions of the natural world are so powerful that I could see the stars in Ana's special place and imagine the birds in flight and the animals moving through the undergrowth.
Really loved this 'Fledgling'.

This book is wonderful. Secrets get unveiled and relationships develop. The storyline is not predictable and the characters are developed so much that you think of them as real people. I recommend this book to everyone who enjoys reading books that have you griped from the start.

3.0 out of 5 stars MMMMM 18 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I hate giving bad reviews, but I found this book slow and too rapped around the life of Ana. I felt that the story being told primarily from Ana's point of view dragged the story out too much. I understood that there was a building of the relationship between Ana and Chance but I found the story hard to follow in bits and as confused as Chance felt.
I liked the idea of the story and I think I see where the author was trying to go but it took too long to get there for me. Sorry but this book has not inspired me to pick up the next book in the series.
