My first book tour of 2017! Thanks to b00kr3vi3w Tours and the author for the opportunity to share with you the cover of Zoe Kalo’s next book!!
As you may know from my previous reviews (see: Daughter of the Sun, Two Graves), Zoe Kalo is one of my fave authors and I’m so excited for this next book! Even though I said I would never read a YA book, I’ve been taken down from that pedestal.
In her previous books she’s written about Egyptian mythology and Dante-esque nightmares, but this time she’s taking on the paranormal.
Here’s a little teaser for what’s to come: Kicked out of school, 17-year old Paloma finds herself in an isolated convent in the tropical forests of 1970s Puerto Rico, where she must overcome her psychosis in order to help a spirit and unveil a killer.
Chameleon by Zoe Kalo
Release Date: February 2017
An isolated convent, a supernatural presence, a dark secret…
17-year-old Paloma only wanted to hold a séance to contact her dead father. She never thought she would be kicked out of school and end up in an isolated convent. Now, all she wants is to be left alone. But slowly, she develops a bond with a group of girls: kind-hearted Maria, insolent Silvy, pathological liar Adelita, and their charismatic leader Rubia. When, yet again, Paloma holds a séance in the hope of contacting her father, she awakens an entity that has been dormant for years. And then, the body count begins. Someone doesn’t want the secret out…
Are the ghost and Paloma’s suspicions real—or only part of her growing paranoia and delusions?
And here’s the wonderful cover!
Beautiful, right? I’m so looking forward to this book, and every one Zoe Kalo puts out! There’s my recommendation for the week: read anything by her!
About the Author: A certified bookworm, Zoe Kalo has always been obsessed with books and reading. Reading led to writing—compulsively. No surprise that at 16, she wrote her first novel, which her classmates read and passed around secretly. The pleasure of writing and sharing her fantasy worlds has stayed with her, so now she wants to pass her stories to you with no secrecy—but with lots of mystery…
A daughter of adventurous expats, she’s had the good fortune of living on 3 continents, learning 4 languages, and experiencing a multicultural life. Currently, she’s working on a Master’s degree in Comparative Literature, which she balances between writing, taking care of her clowder of cats, and searching for the perfect bottle of pinot noir.
