When eighteen-year-old Chance Morgan kills another shapeshifter to save his girlfriend, Ana Hughes, he contracts a dangerous shapeshifting sickness that makes him crave power uncontrollably—and without restraint he’s a threat to the person he loves most. Desperate to keep Ana safe from harm and to find a cure for himself, he abandons her in the Yucatan and escapes into the wilderness. Violent memories and voices surface in his head, creating a dangerous tug-of-war between good and evil.

Companionless and alone, Ana meets a woman who claims to have the same shapeshifting and healing abilities as her and vows to teach Ana the skills to help Chance, but as weeks pass she begins to question if her new mentor truly intends to keep her promise.

With time running out, Ana must find the power within herself to heal Chance before he loses his battle against the powerful voices inside his head.

About the author

 Natasha was born in Nevada City, California. Being an only child, she resorted to using her imagination while exploring the forest surrounding her home (a nasty habit she hasn't been able to break). Her natural interest in fantasy ignited when her parents read The Hobbit to her as a youth, and from then on anything seemed possible. Once awarded with a Hershey's bar 'the size of a Buick' in her high school English class for creative writing, her passion and interest in literature has never dimmed.
She now lives in Littleton, Colorado with her husband, two children, and two dogs.

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 books 2 & 3 in the Shapeshifter Chronicles, Prodigy & Emergent- 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…
 
"The ending if this book was incredible - I did not see that coming at all!!! ONE SENTENCE: Definitely worth a read."-- Worm's Magical Library of Books Blog

"As a Montessori Adolescent Guide, I looked for books like this for my students. This is a great adolescent read!"

"This journey is about discovering ones own abilities and strengths,
learning to trust your instincts, and the depth of love constantly
shimmering between Ana and Chance. An excellent follow up from the first
book, I look forward to reading book three of The Shapeshifter Chronicles." -- Author Amy Manemann

The adventure continues for Chance and Ana in book 2 of The Shapeshifter Chronicles


Book Description:

In Clark Bend, Idaho, Chance Morgan's dreams are haunted by the last moments shared with his grandfather. Memories of the fateful day when he died plague his thoughts, and without his grandfather's council, his shapeshifting powers mysteriously fail him. Desperate to seek out a new mentor and learn more about the mystical world he was sheltered from, Chance must travel far from home to hunt for answers.

Eighteen-year-old, Ana Hughes has only known Chance for a few months, but he quickly found his way into her heart. Since being rescued from Chance's power-hungry cousin, and coming back from death, Ana is unwilling to leave his side, and joins him on his quest to the Yucatan in search of a new mentor.

When Chance's memories fall into place and reveal a threat from their past, Chance and Ana must fight to survive - or die trying.

Praise for The Gardella Vampire Hunters Series

"The Rest Falls Away, Gleason's publishing debut...turns vampire stories--and romances--on their ear with a decidedly dark, decidedly unsentimental Regency heroine who stakes the undead with the best of them." —Detroit Free Press


"The undead rise to great heights through Gleason's phenomenal storytelling. She creates a chilling world with the perfect atmosphere of fear and sexual tension." —Romantic Times

"Gleason keeps upping the ante with each novel, weaving the characters around her readers with each engaging conversation and narrative, every stage set of all the appropriate gothic gloom and melting beauty." —Book Fetish

"...Above all, the writing is what recommends this book most. Gleason's writing is sharp and taut, which makes for excellent action sequences, and a plot that travels quickly from the start. The writing strength alone gives me ample reassurance that this potentially plot-heavy series is in the right hands. I'm definitely looking forward to the next installment." —Smart Bitches, Trashy Books

"Fast-Paced, Heart-Pounding, Can't-Stop-Reading Even If You Wanted Too" - Mom with a Reading Problem ★★★★★

It was supposed to be the final battle, the one to end Edmund's line, his life, and free the magic Edmund had taken from the world. That was how it was foreseen. The end of the battle that has raged for centuries, unbeknownst to the mortals around them, the battle that would end with Joclyn's death.

But it did neither.

The battle still reigns, Joclyn still lives, and the sight that was given eight hundred years ago is broken. 

And it's not the only one.

Sights that were once thought infallible have become nothing more than scattered glass, with broken pieces shattering into incorrect visages. Sain clings to the magic that he knows to be true, but there is something else, something that he is not saying. And what he does say is no longer adding up. 

Something is wrong.

Ilyan and his people move through the caves, following a sight they hope to be correct, fleeing a battle that should have been the end while the battle within each of them grows with each step. 

Ryland fights the monsters his father has infected him with. 
Wynifred fights the confusion of who she is. 
Dramin fights to live.

Prague may not survive this battle, it may be ripped to shreds... or burned to ashes.
