Chameleon by Zoe Kalo
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
::..Reviewed by Red's Midnight Readers..::
I was kindly provided with an ARC in exchange for an honest review. I have given it 3.5 stars.
The blurb for this book was most interesting but once I started reading it, I realized it wasn't what I was expecting. This isn't necessarily a bad thing though, it made for an interesting read. Once you peek beneath the layers of the book the concept was actually very intriguing.
Initially though I struggled to get into the story but by the end I rather liked it. It was fast paced and easier to follow than I had anticipated. The story line was fresh and kept me guessing and turning the pages to see what would happen next. However, there was one part I struggled with, it happened so quickly that I couldn't quite get my head around. The ending also felt a little rushed and left me a little dazed. I think this story deserved more. I will definitely be revisiting this book in the future.
An isolated convent, a supernatural presence, a dark secret…
17-year-old Paloma only wanted to hold a séance to contact her dead father. She never thought she would be kicked out of school and end up in an isolated convent. Now, all she wants is to be left alone. But slowly, she develops a bond with a group of girls: kind-hearted Maria, insolent Silvy, pathological liar Adelita, and their charismatic leader Rubia.
When, yet again, Paloma holds a séance in the hope of contacting her father, she awakens an entity that has been dormant for years. And then, the body count begins. Someone doesn’t want the secret out…Are the ghost and Paloma’s suspicions real—or only part of her growing paranoia and delusions?
