Cameo lives in a caged supernatural city where all species are tagged at birth with silver brands embedded in their foreheads. Her X brand identifies her as a Mixbreed, but she’s so much more. Like a chameleon, she can shift from one person’s image to another.

It’s a great way to make money for a habitat street kid, or Cage Punk as most people call them. Wiz, her street pa

Cameo is a mix breed and her white hair and scaly white skin makes her odder than most inhabitants of Santeria,the compound or habitat where people of her kind live.

Together with her friend Wiz she takes on work as a stand in or decoy for people who can pay. Its risky but its a living.

It all goes to hell one day when the person she has been hired to impersonate turns out to be dead and they were actually being used as scapegoats.They manage to get away but in the process Wiz is hurt.

I'd like to know why this book is here and book 3 of the habitat series keeps getting pushed back. How about we make that our #1 priority and put the side jobs on the back burner. I'm itching for that 3rd book.
Fangs for the Fantasy
Living in the walled city of Santeria, one of the caged Supernatural denizens within, Cameo scratches a living as a reviled mixed-breed, but one with a unique power: she can change her shape to look like anyone.

Working with Wiz, her partner and long term crush, she manages to make considerable cash with this skill, especially for a homeless street kid; but as her reputation becomes known, the risks grow ever harder

Especially when a person from Wiz’s past appears – old debts become due and there’

I wish there was a 4.5 rating. I'm a fan of YA and the Habitat Series by Wright so I was psyched when this book came out. Overall, I really liked it. We have the great urban fantasy world created by Wright, but this time seen through the eyes of our teenage protagonist Cameo. She's struggling to accept herself but doesn't know the truth about who she really is. The mysterious and sexy Wiz, who's taken her under his wing, has a lot of secrets and Cameo's got to figure them out before his time is ...more

*I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*

Chameleon not what I expected but it is an awesome concept and exceptional story.

I loved the easy reading and the flow of the story line. There is no slow, dragging your feet in the story to make you want to skip. Everything flows beautiful and you don’t want to put it down.

I love how throughout the story the life of Cameo is actually explained and you are not left wondering what happen or if what you think is going

I’ve read Kenya’s adult Santeria Habitat books and loved them, so I was excited to try her New Adult book Chameleon.

When the supernaturals lost the war against the humans, they were rounded up and forced to live in caged cities called Habitats.

Each supernatural had their own particular brand placed on their forehead and a choice of which walled city they wanted to live in.

Cameo lives in Santeria. She has glowing white skin and hair, and her body is covered in scales.

She’s lived on the streets fo
Really awesome and creative story. I was attracted by the cool cover and from page one I was not disappointed. Great pacing, the story has constant flow that never left me feeling a lull. I can see any teen who is into Sci-Fi or Urban Fantasy, really getting into this engaging book.

Cameo is a terrific character, so happy she isn't the typical angsty teen. The whole world is rich and full, I am very interested in checking out the grown up series Habitat that this is a spin-off from.

Warning, you a
First, I would like to thank the author Kenya Wright for giving me this book for an honest review. This is the first time I read this author and I love the book. There were a few editing issues. The world building is awesome, I love it. The characters are very well developed. I am looking forward to reading more from this author. Great work Kenya.
