Overview

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.

    It's well written.it held my interest throughout.I loved the "supernatural" elements of the story line.This is a unique Paranormal Romance I just couldn't put down. I found this book is really different and refreshing compared to the other paranormal fiction out there. I just loved the world that is created.

Because believe me when i say that if that was the case i whould have not made it past the first few pages. This book has all kinds of creatures. All kinds of twist. You really never know whats gonna happen. It keeps you on the edge of your seat for sure. The main character has spunk and is badass. I laughed at times and hurt at others. So plz kelly oram keep them coming. And every one else do your self a favor and go read this book!

    Huge disappointment

    I have never given 1 star before, but here it is. The writer gets you to love Russ, then throws in a love triangle with Gabriel, who has zero chemistry with the main character. It just came out of nowhere with no build up. Seriously? Why would you pick a guy you just met over a guy you have loved your whole life? WILL NOT be buying another book in this series, total waste of money and time.

    I was very disappointed with the book. I thought the premise was great and the book started out very well. I found the thought of forced marriage repulsive though. I didn't care for the love triangle. I also bothered by the fact that Dani was tortured to break her bonds but her friend would have to live with his pain forever. This was one of only two books I have ever deleted because I thought it was so bad. I guess I'm a happy ending sort of girl.

    Im the Chameleon of books!

    I am always saying how much I love a book so much and that its my favorite but when i read a next a book I immediatly think that one is the best. But let me just say this is (for now) my ultime favorite book. It has supernatural stuff, romance, and a strong heroine. Gabriel was my ultime favorite male character ever! If you are reading my review right now please get this book! I mean its only $3.99!

    I really, really loved this book! It had tons of actiona and I love it when the female leads are fiery and strong and independant. That's exactly the way I can describe Dani. She's very tough and I love it. Isn't very good with the whole being pushed around. Emotionally though she is a total wreck. I was a bit pissed at her for that, but I guess I could understand how she felt torn between her best friend and her "one true love" according to the council. Sometimes I just wanted to shake her and slap her. Other times I just felt so bad for her because of all that is going on that I just wanted to hug her and help her. She was all over the spectrum emotionally and I felt the same way reading this book. It was all over the place and I wasn't sure whom to trust and whom to just rip to shreds for being a traitor. So many times I was convinced it was one person then I'd think it were impossible and then I'd be skeptical all over again. Tons of points for suspense and action, Kelly. Definitely will love to read the sequel.

    I love Kelly Oram's writing!!
     
    She jumps into this urban fantasy with the same feel of wild abandonment I love in V is for Virgin. She uses exclamation points!!!!  :-D  The characters are vibrant, the story is so fast-paced… I couldn’t put it down.




    The trouble with the love triangle is not so much… the love triangle but every motivation behind it. Dani doesn’t know who is telling the truth and it gets so tangled up that not every trusted person can be who they say they are. The pressure mounts… and the persona under fire is the father-figure. Whose father figure is lying? 




    Oram puts the squeeze on ‘til I can barely stand the tension. There are peeks in the future that actually make bigger messes of things, rather than clear them up. Which, frankly, felt like fantastic writing that made me really squirm. I was ready to shake the truth right out of anyone I could get my hands on.




    Everything clears up, the tangle of loose ends is explained, but not remotely close to how I’d imagined it would. Also, something I really enjoyed. The trouble comes from choosing a side too early… in this book, no one is above selfish motives.




    Oh… and the fantastical world? I squirmed when the spiritual world as I imagine it came to life. *shudder*




    I really love Dani. She’s smart. She thinks fast. She’s not afraid to dive into things headfirst. She has spunky attitude, too. LOTS of attitude. I swallowed her character whole and I’m still irritated with manipulative authorities. Grrrr   She grows and changes delightfully, with speed, motivation and youthful energy.




    Russ is one of my all-time favorite personalities EVER in fiction. He is so fun, so full of life, so real, & so full of attitude. The spats between him and Dani were wonderful. These two are too alike for any peace. They honestly reminded me of Jo March and Laurie… only this time, Dani really likes Russ and doesn’t see their fighting as a reason to not hook up. Yesss!!




    The Seer. How interesting that he isn’t named in the book summary. Lol. His story barely gets started in this book. He is nice. He is sweet. His is very mysterious. We meet him from Dani’s perspective which is just plain WARPED by the time she gets to know him, so I have all kinds of questions, still. This guy has yet to prove himself to me but I caught the hint that we’re nowhere near done with him. My fear is that he is pure sugar and unhealthy.




     There are two father figures and neither is above reproach. Both have ulterior motives, both manipulate Dani abominably. They really draw the battle lines. Neither can be entirely right. My complaint about this book would be right here… one of them seems to change too drastically and the other rang hollow to me. I don’t respect an adult that can tell a youth they don’t like them to their face. There’s something about being an adult, especially a respected adult, that recognizes good and bad all bundled in one character. To say “I don’t like you” is petty coming from a anyone and reduced my respect for one father figure and the entire system because they put him in authority.








    My rating:  Dani & Russ 5’s for me! The Seer was a 4 in hopes of more to come. The world building is 4.5. The fathers were 3’s – I dock them a lot of points because they were so essential to the story. I really love Kelly Oram’s writing style. I look forward to reading everything written by her! Another 5.  Altogether, a resounding 4.




    Cover Love:  I do love this cover. I like the girl looking over her shoulder. I'm not sure what the ball of fire is, but I like it. I LOVE the title. Perfect.

    Intense, fast-paced, complex read! I truly enjoyed reading Chame

    Intense, fast-paced, complex read! I truly enjoyed reading Chameleon and although it was a bit longer of a read for me, I was enthralled throughout it all. Twists and turns, good versus evil, true love, supernatural beings...whew!

    The story starts out innocently enough with Danielle/Dani’s birthday and a harmless prank pulled off by her and her best friend, Russ. Then all the craziness breaks loose, Russ is not who he seems, Dani is not either, and suddenly life becomes a run-for-your-life thrill ride. I loved how complex this story is yet I never felt lost. I felt like I was on the run with Dani the entire time, trying to figure out how it was all going to end, all while feeling her dilemma between Russ and Gabriel. Oh, did I mention a love triangle? Gah! Kelly Oram had me so caught up in Dani’s story that I was as conflicted as she was regarding those two.

    Overall, well-written, perfectly paced story. Lots of supernatural elements, intrigue, hidden agendas, friendship, family, love and betrayal all add up to a fascinating read!
