Summary:

For small-town rebel Dani Webber magic and monsters are no more real than the Easter Bunny… until the day she accidentally stops time. Dani quickly discovers that not only do supernaturals exist, but she herself is one of them. This is great news for her life-long best friend Russ, who can finally come clean about his own supernatural status and his undying love for her. Before the two can start to enjoy the long overdue relationship, Dani is taken by a powerful council of supernaturals who believe she is the Chosen One destined to save them from extinction.

As if being kidnapped and expected to save the world isn’t bad enough, an ancient prophecy warns of the Chosen One’s dark nature: “Only the truest love will keep her an agent for good.” The council believes they know who this “true love” is and, unfortunately, that person isn’t Russ. The mysterious, powerful and devastatingly handsome Seer is the last person Dani wants in her life, but when she starts having visions of a horrific future, she has no one else to turn to for help.

Soon Dani finds herself torn between two very different boys with two very different opinions of whom she can trust. With the visions getting worse and time running out, Dani is forced to put aside her feelings and work with both the Seer and Russ before an ancient evil is unleashed upon the earth.

 

Review

 

Gah! I don’t think I can rate this book fairly… It’s well written… it held my interest throughout… I didn’t want to put it down… I loved the “supernatural” elements of the story line… that would typically be 5 stars … BUT there were several things I did not see coming and thus just couldn’t fully buy into, accept and love this book.  I trusted & liked the wrong people and thus didn’t really like the way the story line went.  It’s a series… there is more to come which I will definitely read because as I’ve said before I LOVE the way Kelly writes and this story hooked me (it just frustrated me too).

Admittedly I am not huge a fan of love triangles, especially ones that are as twisted up as this one was but this is probably the first book I’ve ever read where the girl doesn’t end up with the guy I think she should end up with… their relationship kinda creeped me out and felt totally fake to me which is so unlike the other books I’ve read that Kelly has written where I loved the interactions. Chameleon is book 1 in a new series, I will definitely read the rest of the series and then maybe I’ll be able to fairly rate this book cause by the end it was feeling like a 3 star book but I can’t give it just 3 stars for the reasons mentioned to start with…so 4 stars for now with a big hope I’ll be more satisfied with the story line in the next book.

 

4 stars

 

Rating: 4 Stars (for now)

Content: I didn’t write anything down… sorry I was engrossed in the story but the fact that I don’t remember it as being too objectionable means there probably wasn’t anything more than mild swearing and innuendo.

Comments

  1. It’s an odd experience to read a book that is well written but things go so unlike anything you thought would happen, or should happen. I’ve read a book or two like that…but I can see why you gave it a good rating, especially knowing the writing was so wonderful.

  2. I now have another book to add to my TBR list. I need more hours in the day to get through them all. Thank you for the review of Chameleon by Kelly Orman.
