Review of Chameleon's Colors by Aubrie Dionne

Available at http://www.gypsyshadow.com/

From Aubrie's blog: Ever since she stumbled into her father’s lab and drank a cocktail of his experiments, Kaylee has the ability to change color, blending into her environment like a chameleon. Deemed a freak at school, she runs away and joins the Masquerade Carnival. Her life takes on a routine and she enjoys performing in the shows until one day she falls for a young man hired to help run the rides. Coincidentally, an old, roving gypsy offers to restore her body as it once was to win his heart. Now she must choose between her unique powers or a chance at love.



My Summary:

In the beginning we meet our main character Kaylee, a carnival performer. After reading about a wonderfully descriptive performance in the first paragraph I was caught up in the story. We flash back to Kaylee's past and learn about how she came to be the person that she is today. While in High School she suffers the daily fears of not fitting in until one day she discovers her Father's secret. This is where her life changes forever. ( I won't tell you though...you'll have to read the story!) We are then brought back to present day where we meet an interesting group of carnival performers...an old gypsy...and a new love! Our main character is presented with a difficult choice to make and we follow her along her struggle. Love blooms in an unusual way (this was my favorite part!) hearts are healed and happiness unfolds!

My Review:

This ebook was sent to me by the author for review and while I'm not normally one for ebooks the cover really caught my attention. I'm so glad that it did!

I will say that I was taken in by Aubrie's writing style from the very beginning. She is descriptive but not overly so. You can visualize the story easily and see your characters as I think she pictures them. It was a fast paced story that kept me interested and entertained the whole time I was reading. For me this was a story of trying to fit in and how sometimes you can only find true happiness when you look within yourself. I thought this was a wonderful short story and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys a bit of science fiction mixed in with their reading.
