Change of chaos was a fun story to read because it kept suprising me with crazy plot twists. The story is initally set in a utopian society but the more sinster undertones of city begin to show when the main character of the story siray, fails to go through "the change " when she hit puberty. Shes kidnapped and used as an experiment hidden in the bowels of the city. Then shes rescued and recuited to to fight for the resistance. They teach her how to change and she learns that she has the ability to change into mutiple forms, which is why she was kidnapped to be studied. Its part action thriller with a few hints of romace thrown in to keep it interesting. The author used great descriptions, i could practically see myself walking in the forests beside Siray and all the strange and wonderful beasts that inhabit it. I think this book would work well as part of a series and i look forward to reading more of Sirays adventures.

I wasn't sure what to expect when I started reading this, but this first in a trilogy has me intrigued enough to seek out the rest when they're released. The society which our protagonist is born into might look utopian and peaceful, but after her anomalous nature emerges, her leaders hand her over to a cadre of unethical scientists, which blows the facade right off her world, and you'll find yourself rooting for her and the freedom fighters who take her in, to succeed in their mission. The world building could use a final spit and polish, but they still intrigue me to no end. Also, while this might be a science fictional world with some fantasy elements, there were still a couple of things that stretched the limits of my suspension of disbelief. A couple of long sections felt like less then necessary padding, but that I could chalk up to the style. Yet, overall, the main character's strength and trueness to herself make me like her a lot, and I wanted to follow her where her journey through her world and her life take her. Also, one thing that has twigged me about shapeshifter fiction gets resolved very cleverly: a lot of shifter fiction that I've read juggles the question of what happens with a shifter's clothing when they shift (we'll say I've read things that had me either shaking my head or feeling a bit like the author was playing with what we'll call the 'nekked shifter' for something a bit more than fanservice). But this resolves it in one of the most non-embarassing ways I've ever seen, which is a relief and a delight!

This is the first book in a fantasy series that follows a girl in a world where adolescents go through a "change" and are able to take on another animal form. Her change does not go as planned, and leads her to be kidnapped by a political group that want to study her. She is able to escape with the help of some new friends that also teach her how to fight and finally be able to change into her other form. I really enjoyed this book. It was easy to get lost in the fantasy world that the author described in detail. The book as vivid, action-packed, and entertaining. There were a few typos, grammatical errors, and editing mistakes throughout the book, but these did not terribly hinder reading the story. The characters were well-developed and genuine, and the relationships between them were complex enough to be believable. I think that many fantasy fans will enjoy this book. It is appropriate for young readers as well as adults. The book is exciting and keeps your attention until the very end. I can't wait to read book 2!

Reviewed by Aimee Carol Dixon for Readers' Favorite Kaslon is a world of natural beauty, its wilderness left largely to its own intentions, its people uniquely at one with their surroundings. For there is something particularly special about Kaslonians: upon reaching maturity a youth will Change and take up their second life in their animal form. With a duality like that, how could Kaslon be anything but a paradise? On the night of her Change ceremony, Siray discovers a darkness lurking within her society that shatters her innocence and threatens to consume her. It is only through an inner strength she did not know she had, and an unlikely ally, that Siray makes it out of her city with her mind unbroken. On the run and desperate to learn enough to survive, Siray’s journey takes her through a swath of Kaslon. Change of Chaos introduces a whole new world and culture with breathtaking clarity. The first novel in Jacinta Jade’s The Change Series gives me high hopes for the next installment. Jade’s storytelling and pacing are without a doubt par excellence. Never does a scene or plot point feel rushed or too drawn out. Jade is not afraid to linger over gritty details and often intersperses the narrative with little spots of beauty. Kaslon is an idyllic, gorgeous world and the fact that Jade never lets the wonder of nature’s darkness and light fade does her credit. So much of Siray’s character is woven into Kaslon’s wilderness that to let it fall entirely by the wayside would be doing her a great disservice. I truly admired the way Jade let Siray be herself. Intelligent, naïve, good, stubborn, willful… it deepened Change of Chaos’ resonance for me to take the journey with a protagonist whose traits and worldview were both alike and entirely unlike my own. I will definitely be picking up the second book, and I recommend Change of Chaos for any who favor strong characters, well thought out action, and a world that truly feels alive.
