The Golden One–Blooming

Earth is threatened by humankind. A long time ago, in an effort to help protect her creation, Mother Nature created the Ohana, a worldwide league of shapeshifters to restore and maintain the natural balance. During particularly troublesome times, she deployed her ultimate defense, a delicate yet powerful golden butterfly, to change the odds in nature’s favor.

Blooming is the first book in the trilogy about Jason Mendez, a seventeen-year-old living a normal teenage life in a small town in the American Midwest. One day, Jason’s world is turned upside down when he realizes the dream he had the night before was in fact reality and that he was flying through a nearby meadow.

Jason is the Golden One, called upon to avert a major crisis threatening Earth. With no golden butterfly sighted since the final days of World War II, will Jason be able to walk in his predecessors’ shoes? Will he be able to replicate their historic achievements and save the planet from all but certain disaster? And what exactly is threatening Mother Nature to call upon the Golden One?

The Golden One is an exciting new fantasy trilogy dealing with urgent topics affecting humanity today.

I’m currently reading the Golden One by Hans M Hirschi which is very interesting. I especially enjoy the different take on shapeshifters. It feels like something I’ve never read before and that is always fun.

“It’s sooo good! A sci-fi, magical, twilight-esque kind of book. Amazing. I couldn’t stop listening to it. He kept me up until four o’clock in the morning, so thank you! I can’t wait for the next one.”

This book takes a unique approach to the shifter world while making you re-evaluate your thoughts on environmental issues. […] a great read and I can’t wait for book two where the story will no doubt take a few more twist and turns.
