Prodigy by Natasha Brown
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Pageturning action and adventure. Chance and Ana go in search of a legendary shapeshifter in Mexico. Along the way they encounter tiny animals that pay a little too much attention to their movements. They meet friendly villagers and learn a lot of skills from the mentor, but Chance's evil cousin stalks them and causes mayhem in the final showdown.
Ana surprises herself with a new skill, and even though disaster strikes, she has hope that in the next book she can fix things up.
I really enjoyed this book. The author's voice is authentic and I could tell that she spent a lot of time outdoors observing animals and plant life in the forest. Her descriptions were realistic and while reading the book, I would get creepy feelings looking out the window at the squirrels or birds in my backyard, or wondering about a cat that slunk across my path. The food descriptions in Mexico had my mouth watering and the characters Ana and Chance met were endearing. I enjoyed learning about Mayan legends, and I'm looking forward to Ana's new adventure in the third book.
