Trials of a Teenage Werevulture by Emily Martha Sorensen

Lisette was expecting to be a werehawk. Now she's a werevulture.

Sure, she can still fly, but the garbage looks delicious. And everyone's afraid of her! Okay, everyone's afraid of her best friend, too, but her best friend chose to be a banshee.

Then the mysterious Rarity Clan invites her to join. They offer her friendship, and the ultimate secret: how to be turned a second time so that she could choose a different species instead. She could be a werehawk, or a vampire, specter, giant, lorelei, or whatever else she pleases. There's only one catch, and it's a big one.

The tool that's used to do that is a weapon that could destroy the entire city.

[Received this ARC from the author as a gift that I am voluntarily reviewing] “If you think you’re in danger, the best thing you can do is to act like there’s nothing suspicious about you,” he told me. Easy for him to say.  And Mom of all people agreed with him! “You can’t stop living your life just because you’re afraid,” she told me." Lisette was ready to be changed. She wanted to grow up and be a full member of her clan. And then, when she did, she found that she really wasn't part of her family because, she had become.... a werevulture! Being a teenager was bad enough, but didn't that garbage look good? In true style, Emily Martha Sorensen weaves a fantasy into a mystery and sprinkles it with teenaged angst. This was a fun book to read, and wonder what the second book will be like. I recommend this book

This was not the usual teen growing up story. It was a very nice and enjoyable different presentation of a teenager changing, growing up and accepting their place in life. This was an entertaining and different mix of non-human creature types imaginable, instead of your normal shift changing vamps, werewolves, etc. The author wove a tale filled with danger and excitement and kept me turning page after page until I finished the book in one sitting. This is a voluntary and rather late review of an Advanced Reader Copy of the book.

Looking for a fun, paranormal story about a young girl coming of age in the wereworld? Look no further. Something’s wrong. The turning wasn’t what Lisette hoped for. Her wings are all wrong. She’s not a werehawk, she’s a Werevulture. She went to Werepedia to see what’s what. She’ll be going to Flyer’s Education for flying lessons. She loved her best friend, Kegan, and didn’t judge her for being different, but when she became different too, her feelings became mixed. What clan would accept her? Let’s go to and find out. She may be the odd man out, but I have a feeling she’ll show us how valuable she would be to any clan. We have a vampire pumpkin, wereporcupine, wereplatypus, werebutterfly, weretrees….and all the normal vampires, centaurs, mermaids and such. Her instincts are good and we will find out how good as she investigates the Rarity Clan, who wanter her to join up with them. It is Emily Martha Sorensen’s ability to surprise me with her creative writing and smiles throughout, even in the tough times, that keeps me reading her work. She has a wonderful ability to create such marvelous characters. We can anticipate many things to come, but Trials of a Teenage WereVulture is filled with wit and humor, evil and danger. The creatures spark the imagination and I am left with a feeling we are all special in our individual ways. We all have much to offer to those who enter our lives.

I don't read many books in the YA Fantasy genre but I liked this one. The story is set in a world of many different clans of were creatures. Lisette is the middle daughter in a family of werehawks but when she finally gets to turn on her 17th birthday she doesn't turn into a werehawk; she's a werevulture, and she's not very happy about it. At first she's whines about it like a normal teenager would, because there's no clan for her to join. Shortly after her first full moon she's asked to join the Rarity Clan, but gets suspicious about what they're really about. I liked that Lisette has a family--dad, mom, older sister and a younger sister that care about her and she cares about them. She also has a best friend, who chose to be turned into a banshee. There's no teenage romance in the story except for her thinking that a couple of guys are cute. As the story progresses and she finds herself in challenging situations, but she finds ways to overcome them. She gets less whiny and a little more mature as the story goes on. There's a lot of action but no real violence. It mentions a couple of broken bones and someone dies, but it isn't described (just mentioned).

I found this book to be very unique and love the concept! The main character Lisette, was perfectly portrayed as a disgruntled teenager struggling with not getting what she wants. The underlying meaning behind her trials mirrors many of life's challenges. Her journey to learn that there are bigger things than just what we want is illustrated perfectly. Highly entertaining, this is a great read! This voluntary review is based against an advance copy.
