In a futuristic world where corporate elites live luxuriously and hold all of the power, the year 2200 is a place where after climate change and nuclear war, the air isn’t so clean anymore. Libby is a mutant. She has the power to blend into any wall and even change her form accordingly. Libby is also one of the best assassins/burglars around but will her next task be the one that takes her down? Will she learn everything she needs to know before it’s too late?
Chameleon Assassin is a very fast-paced read that got me hooked from the very beginning. The characters that B.R. Kingsolver brings to life are just so bad-ass and I can totally picture this as a TV series. It’s like a mix of X-Men with a supernatural twist and a mission to solve as the cherry on top. You get so drawn into the story that you can’t help but try to figure everything out alongside her. I’ve had so many theories myself and was always caught off-guard when the opposite happens. I didn’t like the love triangle at first but then I realized it was probably an essential part of the story to have in order for it to go where it needed to.
It was a really fun book to read and I highly recommend it to someone who loves post-apocalyptic books and who enjoy puzzling out missions and bad-ass characters.
I give this book a rating of 4 out of 5 feathers!
I made silver and turquoise jewelry for almost a decade, ended up in nursing school, then took a master’s in business. Along the way I worked in construction, as a newspaper editor, a teacher, and somehow found a career working with computers.
As to my other interests, I love the outdoors, especially the Rocky Mountains. I’ve skied since high school, with one broken leg and one torn ACL to show for it. I’ve hiked and camped all my life. I love to travel, though I haven’t done enough of it. I’ve seen a lot of Russia and Mexico, not enough of England. Amsterdam is amazing, and the Romanian Alps are breathtaking. Lake Tahoe is a favorite, and someday I’d like to see Banff.
