- Lisa Harris "I am addicted to books. Nothing makes me happier than crawling inside a good book."

Good sequel, great audio

What does Sarah Mollo-Christensen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I would definitely listen to this narrator, she does amazing accents and is pleasant to listen to.

Any additional comments?

I started reading Chameleon shortly after finishing the first book, Ripple. I loved the Ripple audio, but at the time had the trilogy ebooks and decided to try reading an ebook again. My schedule just wasn't working out, with only reading a chapter or two on weekends, so I was happy to get the audio of this sequel to blast through on my commute. I forgot how amazing this narrator is. I loved her accents and I really think that adds so much to the enjoyment of the story.

The sequel was quite good, a solid 3.5 stars, so I would say it did well for being a "middle book" (though it appears there are many other books in this series that are outside the original trilogy). I liked how this takes place mostly in France, so we get a fun travel experience through the eyes of our characters. I liked Sir Walter - a great character, maybe even a grandfather-figure to Will and Mickie. We got to learn a few more of the secrets of the "chameleon" gene and finding out what Hellman and Helga were really plotting.

What bothered me though is why are these long-term chameleons/ripplers dragging their feet to act and standing by as their people get killed off? Even Sir Walter explained that he was just biding his time and didn't really feel like he was ready to do anything, yet in the meantime, his bloodline was being wiped away. Why does it have to take Sam and Will being in danger to finally get things moving?

In these first two books it is mostly Helga and her henchmen who are after Sam, so I'm wondering if we'll finally see Hellman come out of hiding in the next book. This one didn't end on a cliffhanger, exactly, but it was an open-ending nonetheless.

As for the romance factor, I just wanted to hit Will over the head a few times. Silly teenage misunderstandings are a trope that I see too much in books. But I'm glad Sam grew some ovaries and did something about it. Now I'm looking forward to finding out what happens with them.

Maybe I'll be able to find time to read the third ebook. Or maybe I'll wait for the next audio :)

I received this audio book in exchange for my honest review via Audiobook Blast.
