Editorial Reviews

Review

"Enough paranoid twists and turns to keep the reader turning pages . . . the author has clearly thought through the nuances of the story's theme and engineered a few surprising plot twists that elevate it . . . above the level of the average thriller." -Publishers Weekly

About the Author

Teyla Branton grew up avidly reading science fiction and fantasy and watching Star Trek reruns with her large family. They lived on a little farm where she loved to visit the solitary cow and collect (and juggle) the eggs, usually making it back to the house with most of them intact. On that same farm she once owned thirty-three gerbils and eighteen cats, not a good mix, as it turns out. Teyla always had her nose in a book and daydreamed about someday creating her own worlds. She is now married, mostly grown up, and has seven kids, including a two-year-old, so life at her house can be very interesting (and loud), but writing keeps her sane. She thrives on the energy, inspiration, and daily amusement offered by her children. Grabbing any snatch of free time from her hectic life, Teyla writes novels, often with a child on her lap. She loves guns, martial arts, and belly dancing. Teyla writes urban fantasy, paranormal romance, and science fiction. She also writes romance and romantic suspense under the name Rachel Branton.

Excellent book! Well written, no grammer issues, and though there is a lot of action with the ongoing conflict between the three groups, the starring role in this novel is the relationships between people. The author effectively brings out how unexpectedly developing unique abilities impacts the family and the community as well as the individual. The character development impresses me. These fictional people and their relationships are drawn so realistically, I visualize them as I read.
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!

I really enjoyed reading this story. The characters are well developed and the world building helps the reader further understand the characters motivations. The main character, Erin , is strong female that has some reservations about her new life changes. It is wonderful to have a paranormal story that is not either all romance or action/adventure but has both qualities. I look forward to seeing more from this author.

I truly enjoyed The Change by Teyla (cool name!) Branton. Ms. Hamilton's excellent writing skills and the unique people that inhabit her reality kept me riveted. The characters are three-dimensional with complex emotion and relationships, enhancing the story and guiding each person in their beliefs and actions.

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!

I enjoyed reading this story, but I also had some issues with it.

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.

This book was a great read! I didn't want it to end and am very much looking forward to the next book. I loved the hints of romance without graphic sex scenes. The plot twists are intriguing. I was in suspense throughout, and really wish the second and third books were out so I could read them all.
