From Author for Review


Not many people can say their entire existence has been one big lab experiment: poked and prodded by scientists, genetically modified to be the best and endure the worst, subjected to daily tests and trials that would kill a normal human. All Michaela wants is her own life, to be able to go to school, flirt with boys, maybe eat ice cream now and then. So when the chance to escape finally comes, Michaela and her sister grab it, taking their friends with them.

But they weren't the only ones to find their way out of those labs. Following close behind are another breed of creature, one that doesn't know the difference between right and wrong, who exist only to feed their own hunger. The appearance of a strange boy who seems too much like them to be a coincidence makes things even more confusing. But as the world begins to literally fall apart around them, Michaela must accept his help, especially when she could lose the very thing she holds dearest: her sister.

Review: Kayla and the other girls have known nothing but the lab and themselves for the entirety of their lives. Due to an odd event, the girls are able to make their escape from the lab and need to figure out where to go with the help of one of the workers at the lab. The girls are on the run and the country is in trouble from something else which crawled out of the lab, too. What were the girls created for? Are there others out there like them? Who or what are those creatures laying waste to the country? And how to we find the answers?

The Sphinx Project is a captivating novel which, by the end, will leave you with some answers and a lot of questions which will be (hopefully) addressed in the next books of The Chimaera Chronicles. The characters and action are intriguing and keep you hooked from page 1. Not knowing who is friend or foe, Kayla and her team are in for a rocky ride ahead. I can't wait to see what is next for Kayla!

  1. I must say this is an excellent novel and VERY well written! Its full of great action! The people born of spliced genes and their abilities, I find is very fitting to the story. This story kept me on the edge of my seat, waiting to see what would happen next. I was very disappointed when I reached the end! I am very much looking forward to the sequel! I recommend this book for everyone to read!
