Chameleon: The Awakening by Maggie Faire
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Sixteen-year-old, Camryn Painter was born a chameleon, able to identically shift into whomever she views. Camryn’s mother died after giving birth to her. She was put in the care of two humans to raise her, not knowing anything about her origins.
It was prophesied that a chameleon would be the chosen of the Forest People, having powers above all others to save their world. The different races of the Forest People are seeking her out. Ohar, of the Mazikeen and Dagger, of the Boha, both try to gain Camryn allegiance. However, so many lies have been told, Camryn doesn’t know who she can trust.
Chameleon: The Awakening, was an interesting story. I felt it was unique, and I haven’t read anything like it. I like their method of travel through the lichen and the Forest People’s relationship with nature.
The characters are multidimensional making them interesting and unpredictable.
I think Chameleon: The Awakening set a good foundation for the Forest People series. I could see this series really taking off.
