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…
We find out in this book that Chance is a shapeshifter and his grandfather is trying to help him develop his talents but when Ana’s heart gives out Chance performs a healing move that heals her but kills him(he really didn’t know that much about the healing process) and so his grandfather brings Chance back and thus kills himself. His grandfather was a shapeshifter too and when one dies his power goes into the other so Chance now has his grandfather’s powers and memories, good and bad. Chance and Ana have to go to Mexico to find a man to mentor him and thus ends books one.
I think I have found a new series. If you like YA literature put this one on your “to be read” list.
