Perfect Pitch


Must read 🏆

Perfect Pitch is a magical and instrumental follow-up story to the first installment within The Chameleon Effect series by Alex Hayes.

At first glance, if it looks like a human and talks like a human, you wouldn’t generally assume that it would be anything other than human, right? Now, if you saw someone with an ability to do things that were unnatural or completely morphing into something with scales, what would you think then? Would you think that they were still human? Hayes will continue to entertain, mystify, and captivate readers in the second installment of The Chameleon Effect series.

Cadi is gone. The Jacobsens are gone. The only one who remains is Shri, his best friend. But, with high school graduation nearing, he can’t think about a future without knowing that his brother is safe. Shri gets a call from the Jacobsens with an offer to move up to where they now live and help out with building some cabins on their vast property. Putting in her notice with the farm seems easy. Everyone who she cares about is with the Jacobsens, but Dean. Urging Dean to consider making the move with her, she understands that he is battling with himself over the situation that he would be leaving behind. A drunken mother…and now an abusive father is back in the picture. He also feels like he would be intruding on Cadi after the way they left things before her departure. After one last stunt by his father, he takes his brother and Shri and heads to the cabins, happy to never look back. Upon their arrival, things seem very tense, which makes Dean determined to figure out Cadi’s new secrets. One being the new love of her life, Idris. The second, he is not really sure if he is ready to believe…inhuman? One thing is for certain though, he has never known friendship like the kind that he has with Shri and had with Cadi. He would do anything to make that happen again. There are many battles to be had before they can come together and put their feelings and past aside, but are they all willing to do that? Especially when new forces are trying to destroy Cadi’s race here on Earth?

Hayes has a gripping story, filled with creativity, originality and fascinating characters. This story is one that will grab the reader from the beginning and lure them further into a depth of adventure and magic. Hayes has well-developed characters that are captivating and likable. Also, the story is very well-written with little to no spelling or grammatical errors. One of the best aspects of this story is the learning curve that these characters have to face in order to survive. The strength that Hayes conveys regarding the desire to forge the Livran community on Earth is impeccable and perfect for a young adult audience. If you are a reader of young adult fantasy and paranormal fiction, you may want to pick up this second installment; however, since it is a direct continuation of the previous installment, it is recommended to read through the first book called Silken Scales prior to diving into this one.
