The plot is multifaceted with plenty of discoveries and surprises revealed one by one, from the first chapter through to the last. Plus, there's no gratuitous graphic sex. Graphic sex in a novel is like candy floss: fluffy, showy, colourful, takes up a lot of space, but actually just full of air. This story is more like a ten-course meal: paranormal talents, family, friends, some romance, team work, loss, tremendous challenges, prejudice, altruistic people, and power hungry people--a rich and satisfying novel. I look forward to reading the next book in the series. Bon Appetit!
Giving away plot is not something I like to do, so I will just mention some aspects of the book that kept me involved in the story. Erin, the heroine, is a strong woman who has to rapidly grow from innocence to strength and maturity in a very short space of time. She is confronted with changes at every level of her existence: herself, family, friends, lover, enemies, - her entire reality is under scrutiny and little is as it appears.
There are many other characters that I also came to love. Ritter, naturally, in his anger and need for revenge, still shows tenderness to those he must protect. I greatly admire Dimitry, Eva and Stella. Keene and Cory... well, you'll have to read the book to find out about them!
The plot is complex on some levels and a straightforward good guy/bad guy on others, but the way Ms. Branton tells her story and the plot unfolds and evolves, is truly reflective of a wonderful writer and story teller.
Thank you for writing this engrossing novel! I look forward to reading the next in the series and I highly recommend The Change to anyone who enjoys quality fantasy, a hint of romance, Webster's, spy novels, mystery buffs, well, pretty much everyone, as you will all find many things to engage your interest here!
First of all, the good points:
-- It's really nice to see this sort of story play out with an older-than-teenaged protagonist. While the story does have a bit of a young adult feel (which is not a bad thing in its own right), I think that just lends itself all the better to exploring a concept a lot of books aimed at adults might be hesitant to explore.
-- The writing itself is nicely done. In general I liked Erin's character voice, the settings were very well-described without bogging down the narrative, and characters who were meant to be sympathetic were really darn sympathetic.
-- I also - in general - appreciated the protagonist's character development, how easily she took to people, and how she didn't make many judgements about other characters, merely accepting them instead.
-- The author clearly has a big world in mind and has done a good job of developing it. It definitely feels like there's still more to it than what you're seeing even BESIDES being told as much directly, and I can only hope that future installments have kept the world as open and elaborated further on its depth.
The less good points, some of which might be more like personal quibbles:
-- In spite of featuring a cast of older characters (well, I mean, of course they're older considering their condition, but I guess I mean like their physical age), several of them and especially the protagonist often read like they were much younger or not as much in control of themselves as one might expect for adults+. Most everyone in the know condescended pretty heavily to the protagonist and absolutely refused to communicate openly in order to avoid sometimes fatal problems.Read more ›

It's nice to see a series about coming into some kind of paranormal powers that isn't about teens. The fact that her characters are in or near their 30s makes it more interesting... Read morePublished 3 days ago by tvrna
