Some reviews for Chamaeleon: The Secret Spy
From Koala — 4 stars
I originally bought this book for my daughter, but it turned out to be a little old for her, so I'll keep it for later. It's a lovely tale, well-written, with believable, individual and likeable characters and plenty of adventure to keep the reader interested.
I highly recommend it to any young reader (or older reader) who loves fantasy adventure.
From Dianne Davies — 5 stars
I know it's a kids/pre-teens book but I (a grandmother) enjoyed it too! I read it in two sittings and wanted the story to go on. Looking forward to the next in the series!
From Laurie Cameron — 5 stars
Like all Woodlanders, Kel can blend with the trees, grass, and bushes, rendering himself virtually invisible, but he also has the extra-special power to blend into any background be it stone or metal. Thus, when the kingdom of Keralyia in the north plans to attack Kel's native land with a special weapon, the Spymaster sends for him. His mission is to find the weapon and destroy it. After intensive training, he sets off for the North together with the King's messenger, where many adventures befall him as he strives to accomplish his mission.
The book is well-written and the story, well-paced. The characters, both foe and friend, are colorful and engaging. I recommend it for any middle grade reader.
