CHIMERA Review by Bookshelf Bombshells09 Aug 2011, Posted by Books, Reviews, Rob Thurman's Twitter, The Chimera Novels in
Buy It. A new series with a bold concept that’s well worth owning.
“From the rescue on, the story gains momentum to become an excellent thriller, full of tests, betrayal, and discovery. Both brothers find themselves in situations that require them to do things they not only don’t wish to do, but desperately wish the other did not have to witness. It’s a strange sort of bonding, peppered liberally with the sarcasm of cynical young men, but throughout the process, they both learn the importance of family, however dysfunctional. The closer they get to freedom, the more difficult it becomes for them, and the reader, to believe they will make it. The twist at the end, which I will not ruin, is smart, logical, and yet surprising.
Rob Thurman has shown an impressive talent for creating memorable stories and compelling worlds. I believe Chimera is a fine beginning for this new series. Stay tuned for my review of the sequel, Basilisk, released this month.” –Bookshelf Bombshells
