Synopsis from Goodreads: If you witnessed your parents killed at age five for reasons unknown only to endure eight years of isolation in captivity, what would you do with your life when you were suddenly rescued by family you never knew you had? What if you yourself were even more than you seemed? The universe can be both a terrible and wonderful place to live if you have the courage to explore it. Enter an alternate reality of civil war, secrets, murders and betrayals that transcends space and time with CHIMERA, Book One of the Weaver Series.

I have to say, I had a difficult time reading this book – only because I had so much other stuff to do and I didn’t want to put it down! Normally I can guarantee I’d have devoured this book in 24 hours or less, but alas, school & life think they need to rear their ugly heads and make my reading a bit more difficult! LOL
Now… Chimera is a new take on sci-fi/YA – I’d honestly classify the book as both, considering the main character is 13 years old and the concept of what she and her kin are able to do is, well, sci-fi type stuff. But it’s completely awesome and it’s a fresh idea – not the boring stuff we usually get.
Chimera takes a real medical condition (Chimerism) and fuses it with a wonderful sci-fi twist – but I can’t tell you the twist or you’ll know too much already! Trust me, this book is difficult to put down – from the moment it starts you’ll be wondering what is going on and what will happen next.
Trust me – you need to read this book. It gets a full five stars from me because it’s just a WOW book and so hard to talk about without giving it all away!
I received a copy of this book free from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are 100% my own.
