All Dean wants is to escape…
But he can’t leave his younger brother, Ty, in the care of their alcoholic mother. And when their abusive father shows up, Dean has to get Ty out. Which means joining Shri — his best and only friend — in taking a job out of state and breaking the law by stealing his brother away.
Cadi’s life is almost back together after Dean blew it into a million pieces. She’s come to terms with her life as a shape-shifter — well, almost. She’s still trying to wrap her head around the fact that a vicious enemy is out to destroy the remnants of her people.
As if Cadi doesn’t have enough to deal with, Dean’s about to land on her front doorstep, forcing her to decide whether to let him into her secret world or slam the door in his face.
The Chameleon Effect series, starring shape-shifter teens with extraordinary superpowers, is sure to appeal to Young Adult and New Adult readers who enjoy romance with a paranormal twist.
4 out of 5 (very good)
Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
After reading Silken Scales, I couldn't wait to read Perfect Pitch. Follow up books tend to be either just okay or needs work in some aspects, but this was just... well... perfect. This book is easy to read and quite easy to do in one sitting, which I did! (A few friends get together and do a 24-hour read-a-thon. I chose Perfect Pitch and I don't regret it!) I was glued to my kindle. Cadi and Ty were absolutely wonderful. I completely felt for Ty and the situation he was going through, and especially at such a young age. He handled it well. What I liked most about this was the ending. I know that sounds bad, but I liked that it didn't feel rushed. It was a nice conclusion to the story while knowing the third book could be on the horizon.
The writing was superb. Each character showed a certain strength and growth, which only added depth to the story. This story goes so fast, full-throttle, you don't realize you're reading 290 pages. There's non-stop action, with a little romance aspect. I admit I was a bit nervous about reading this book. It’s easy for the book to become formulaic, but it wasn’t. I didn’t know there was a prequel to this series, but I will be going back to read that. Who knows?! I may even start this series all over! This is a great sci-fi read. I was very surprised at how quickly I read this and fell in love. I can't wait to read the next book!
