Nessa and her siblings have moved into her father’s compound after the death of their mother. It was Nessa’s mother’s dying wish that Nessa take care of her sister, a chimera, called CM, created by her father in the image of her sister, Delphine, but combined with bat and deer genetics, among others. Nessa hopes having CM join her family as a member instead of a science experiment will be good for them all, but add in visiting Japanese scientists, a conference with the chimera as Exhibit A, and the perfect storm, and Nessa may realize that her mom’s last words were not meant to be taken at face value.
In this final installment, Nessa faces many changes – changing love interests, changing roles, changing beliefs, changing abilities. She has to decide whether to hide who she is or share it in order to be the hero her family needs in the middle of a storm in her family and out on the compound. There were so many plot points happening in this third story of the series that Bell could have extended the tale into another book, but it makes for a constantly moving, changing landscape and a satisfying conclusion to the Weregirl series.
Chris Hayden has been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
