The forest is full of secrets.

Nessa Kurland is adjusting to life as a weregirl—she is transforming with ease and running with a pack she cares for deeply. Her boyfriend Luc is a fellow shifter, and Paravida, the corporation responsible for unethical genetic experiments on the residents of Tether, has pulled out of town, leaving the community safe.

But that’s just how it appears on the surface.

Nessa returns home from a run with the pack to find an FBI raid and the shocking news that her mother Vivian is being held without bail for violations so serious she may be facing life in prison. What did Nessa’s mother, a small-town vet tech, do to threaten Homeland Security? Vivian’s secret past leads Nessa to discover there is more to her own story than she ever imagined.

The wolves that are running through Tether’s woods are not the same pack Nessa knew before. These are not all natural wolves. And they are breeding.

Nessa’s transformation is only just beginning.

In CHIMERA, the second installment in the Weregirl trilogy, Nessa confronts the truth of who she is, where she comes from, and what she has to do to survive.
See my review of the first book: Weregirl

Having enjoyed Weregirl, the first of the series, I just had to request Weregirl: Chimera to continue the story and see where things were headed for Nessa, Luke, and the wolves of Tether. The story moved forward, bringing forth more mystery and questions pertaining to the Paravida wolves and the connection to Daniel Host, if there is any.

With Weregirl, I felt like Nessa wasn't much of a character that I could care for, but having read this, I do care for her and the things C.D Bell puts her through (how dare you?!). Nessa has most certainly progressed as a character and has grown into a solid, believable person. I'm so glad to have seen such a change in her and the fact that you can see how she's matured is refreshing.

The story was pretty much action-packed with a deeper insight into Paravida and this man called Daniel Host. We also get more background into Nessa's mother, Vivian's life, which really helps us understand Nessa's place in all of this. With all this information being brought to our attention, you would think the story would be bogged down by the amount of things needed to be known, but it was well-written enough to keep the story going while revealing what we need to continue on in the series.

With everything that's happened in this book, I'm a bit upset. Not because of the writing or the story in general, I'm sad for Nessa and what may lie ahead for her and her family. I absolutely cannot wait to read Weregirl: Typhon. I'm excited to see where C.D. Bell will take us with this story.
