I took my first breath at page 52. Great opening scene that had me hooked on figuring out who injured Lord Stone and dared to harm others.

Lady Victoria Grayson is up for an adventure now that she's healed from her childhood illness. She arrives in London to visit her brother doctor, Lord Ravensmoore, only to be shunted to Lord Witt as her brother's healing skills are needed with Lord Stone. Lord Witt has been commissioned by the Prince Regent to investigate Lord Ravensmoore's doctoring skills which are highly unusual for a lord to practice.

There are twists and turns which Ms. Kent steers us through on solid writing. She has a keen eye for tortured souls and I appreciate her realistic, compassionate portrayals. Because of this, I look forward to her next book in this series.

Will this be compared to The Chronicles of Narnia? June 18 2012
By Ada Brownell - Published on
Format: Paperback
I'd read about two-thirds of the way through Chameleon when I decided I didn't like the book. It didn't appear to be the genre I read. Characters drank liquor, which I don't usually see in Christian fiction, and this predator hawk flying about symbolized danger.
Yet, I was hooked. Lady Victoria and her physician brother, Lord Ravensmoore, are determined to change the cruel or neglectful treatment of patients at the asylum for the insane.
Then there is the handsome former spy, Lord Witt, looking into a human attack by a hawk where the victim is near death. Witt allows Lady Victoria, whom he calls "little snoop,"to help investigate sometimes because he has an affection for her and she likes to solve mysteries.
I hated the character who trained hawks. I deducted he was the vicious Talon, the object of their search. But no one knows who Talon is.
A mental health institute was on my beat as a newspaper reporter and I was astonished at the diagnoses thought to be linked to insanity in the late 1800s: Paralysis, syphilis, Down's Syndrome, epilepsy, deafness, and a whole lot of physical problems that later experts learned had nothing to do with insanity. This book is set in 1818.
So it wasn't Lady Victoria's visits to the asylum and reading to patients that bothered me most, but the dreaded mammoth hawks who attempts to kill Ravensmoore and Witt.
I don't know if the author intended this book to be an allegory using imagery to reflect a spiritual message such as C.S. Lewis uses in the The Chronicles of Narnia, but a message came through loud and clear to me as the mammoth birds circle their prey.
First, Jesus warned that when the seeds of the gospel are sown in our hearts, some falls on the wayside and birds come in and devour it. In his explanation of the parable, Jesus said the birds symbolize Satan (Matthew 13 KJ).
Then we're told in John 10:10 the "thief," Satan, comes to kill steal and destroy, so I see the hawk, as Satan, pecking spiritual eyes out, ripping away faith's flesh, as well as destroying the eggs, baby chicks and squabs.
Yet, hawks are majestic beautiful birds with characteristics of the eagle. The Word reminds us the devil takes on many forms and could disguise himself as "an angel of light" (2 Corinthians 11:14).
In Chameleon, the characters fight against the killer falcons, but according to scripture all we have to do against Satan is to resist him--for greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world.
Jillian Kent, the author of Chameleon, has written a unique novel that satisfies the reader because there is victory, as well as romance.
The novel didn't follow through quite as far as I expected with the reflective imagery, but it's still a great read if you like suspense and allegories. As I said, I don't know if the author meant for it to be an allegory, but it seems so to me.

Regency mystery an adventurous journey May 28 2013
By Mary Hake - Published on
Format: Paperback
An intriguing story filled with suspense and danger. This regency set in 1818 England connects readers with Lady Victoria Grayson, who desires freedom and adventure following years of illness. Her brother, Lord Ravensmoore, wants to protect her but she becomes entangled in the mystery he has been called to deal with. Someone or something is attacking some of the lords with the intent to kill them. Who is the wicked Talon, who claims to be perpetrator of these evil deeds?

Victoria befriends Lady Phoebe and wonders about the girl's brother, Lord Ramsey. Victoria joins Lord Witt, a friend of her brother, in trying to unravel the strange goings-on. When her own life grows endangered, how will she escape? She draws on strength from God to withstand this life-threatening trial.

Each chapter of Chameleon opens with an appropriate quote that helps establish the mood. Jillian Kent has woven a masterful tale, as noted by the awards lists on which the books appears. It's the second in a series, but strong enough to stand alone.

By Kym McNabney - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you love a good murder mystery set in the early 1800's, CHAMELEON by JILLIAN KENT is the novel for you. It's well written with well thought-out characters, and descriptive details. You'll feel as though you've stepped back in time.

Lady Victoria Grayson is swept into a new and exciting world. After being isolated with a childhood illness for most of her life, she is finally living what she had only read and dreamt of.

Lord Witt`s wartime profession as a spy, taught him that all are not who they claim to be. When the Regent request Lord Witt to investigate Lady Victoria's physician brother, Lord Ravensmoore, Witt could not have guessed he'd be taken with his sister.

It's not long before Lady Vitoria and Lord Witt find themselves in the middle of a plot targeting the lords of Parliament. Together their feelings for one another will be tested, as well as their faith.

CHAMELEON is heavy on mystery, intrigue, and scandal with a light sprinkling of romance. CHAMELEON is as much about Lady Victoria and Lord Witt, as it is about Victoria's brother, Lord Ravensmoore. As soon as Mercy came into the picture, I sense the next book in this series would be hers. What a great introduction to the next book.

Format: Kindle Edition
I have had this book for awhile, and while it starts out a little slow for me, it hooked me in just a bit. Ms. Kent continues the theme of mental health from the first book, and the history of it in that time period was very fascinating.
The focus of the book is on the mystery, more than the romance, but there is still the romantic thread throughout the whole book. I found myself going back and wanting to finish and even now, am looking to buy the third book to find out what happens to Mercy.
The regency style serial killer, was not as gruesome as it sounds, but just as interesting to read about.

I had read the first book in this series and just loved it but I thought the story line in the second and third was just too far out...
