Kylie has finally got an answer in the elusive question of what she is. According to her father, she is a chameleon, but with the answer comes a lot more questions. What exactly is a chameleon? Why is it that there are no other records of chameleons? And how can she control all her different powers without having a mental breakdown? But there are other questions too that don’t have to deal with what she is, and the top most one is why is she seeing Holiday’s ghost when the camp leader isn’t dead?
Okay, this book was a real emotional roller coaster. Between everyone thinking that Kylie was a lizard – seriously? – and Kylie reconnecting with her real family, not to mention the whole Lucas/Derek love triangle I kind of need a drink. The two things that I’ve liked about this book series was the relationship between Kylie, Miranda, and Della and the focus on Holiday and Burnett and the whole will they won’t they situation they had going on. In Whispers at Moonrise, I get a lot of that, plus some unexpected things.
Just when I thought the whole love triangle thing couldn’t get more complicated, Derek admits that he’s in love with Kylie (granted that happened at the end of the last book, but the fallout from his declaration impacts the plot of the rest of the book) and Lucas is acting a lot more mysterious than usual especially when his father comes into camp. The reasoning behind that has to deal with Lucas wanting his approval for a spot on the Council so that he can change things, even if that means he has to play by his father’s rules to get it. However, I’m still not sure I agree with what he ended up doing, and I’m also not sure I like what that caused Kylie to do (although she denied it at the end). I guess we’ll just see how everything turns out in the final book…
Final Rating: 3 out of 5 stars. Okay, so this book wasn’t as bad as the previous three, there wasn’t as much complaining, but…I don’t know it still wasn’t fantastic.
