Summary : Junco Coot can’t even remember her trip off Earth; she was too busy being morphed into her new avian body. But reality hits her hard when she wakes up to find her new life is not what she expected. Not even close. Tier is on trial for disobeying his commander’s kill order and only Junco seems to care.
In most places the avian coming-of-age Fledge ritual would be nothing more than mass murder, but here in the capital city of Amelia, it’s called growing up. Junco has no choice; either fight to the death to prove her worth or get sent back to Earth in the hands of her enemies.
Her new military team is hostile, her body is being taken over by an illicit artificial intelligence, the avian president wants her dead, and her only friend is a ten-year old throwaway boy.
On a foreign habitat, in a foreign culture, and surrounded by people she can’t trust or count on, Junco must find a way to save herself and Tier without losing her immortal soul in the process.

Wow!! Literally, wow! Fledge did not disapoint in any way possible. Talk about twists and turns! There were things that even I didn't see coming and usually I can spot stuff happening a mile away. This book had more drama and heartache than some of the soap operas on televison. Seriously, this book was Awesome! I am so happy that the orginality and creative writing was still going full force in this book just like it was in the first one. Here we see more about Junco and what has kept her going and what makes her tick. In this book I saw her grow much more and really become something that I think we all struggle with, becoming ones true self. Whatever that is.
Tier is on trial and so this book you don't get to see much about him. Other characters are introduced along with Junco's military team that is pretty awesome and interesting. We also find out what the deal is with the Seven Siblings and find out more about the mythology and history of pretty much everything.
I'm starting the third book now because I have to know what is going to happen. I've heard great things so fingers crossed it is just as good, if not better.

About the Author
J. A. Huss never took a creative writing class in her life. Some would say it shows. Others might cut her some slack. She did however, get educated and graduated from Colorado State University with a B.S. in Equine Science. She had grand dreams of getting a Ph.D. but while she loves science, she hated academia and settled for a M.S. in Forensic Toxicology from the University of Florida.She went on to write science curriculum for homeschoolers and now runs a successful home business that creates and offers online science unit studies. When she’s not writing science curriculum or fiction, she works as a farm inspector, traveling the Eastern Plains of Colorado in variety of environmentally friendly vehicles that never have four-wheel drive, so when she gets stuck in the mud in said vehicles, she has to beg for assistance from anyone who will help her. She is not bitter about that at all.
She’s always packing heat and she is owned by two donkeys, five dogs, more chickens and ducks than she can count, and of course, the real filthy animals, her kids. The I Am Just Junco series was born after falling in love with the ugliest part of Colorado and the Rural Republic is based on the area of the state she currently resides in, minus the mutants, of course.
