BOOK TOUR REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: Chameleon by Kelly Oram
by Kelly Oram
Supernaturals Series, Book One
MY THOUGHTS: 3.5 OUT OF 5 FLEURS DE LIS
I’ve read another series where the main character had powers similar to Danielle’s (the main character of this book), so I can’t say I thought the book was entirely original. I thought it was a very good supernatural story though, heavy on the romance side but with it came a big love triangle.
Now, I don’t mind a good love triangle every now and then. For this book though, I kind of felt like Danielle was stuck between a rock and a hard place. With all the changes going on in her life, she also has to choose between her best friend Russ and her new mate that’s been forced upon her, Gabriel. I honestly felt it, that the choice she had to make was ripping her heart out. I did feel she led one of the guys on though, even though she said she wasn’t trying to do that.
I’m still not sure if I liked Danielle or not. She is not your typical kick-ass paranormal YA heroine, and she does whine and complain a bit more than I would like. She does have some funny moments though, and she’s at her best when she’s with one of the guys she loves. One character I know I loved was Russ. He and Danielle have been best friends since they were young children, and as he finally introduces her to his hidden life, he’s expecting them to be together forever. It hurt to watch him come to grips with everything that happened in the book.
At the end, I finally felt Danielle had grown up some, and embracing her destiny. Though I thought there were a handful of parts that were slow moving, I’m glad I finished the book. Kelly Oram has created a fun and imaginative supernatural world that I’ll be happy to visit again in future books.
