Where Science Ends and Magic Begins: C. D. Bell’s YA Thriller Trilogy Continues with CHIMERA: A Weregirl Novel.
Paranormal YA Thriller Trilogy Depicts a Universe where Science and Magic are Equally Powerful
Move over, Stephen Hawking and Richard Dawkins—there’s a new scientific order. And this time, a mother-and-daughter team of werewolf scientists are in charge.
CHIMERA: A Weregirl Novel by C. D. Bell [Chooseco Publishing] is the highly anticipated YA paranormal thriller sequel in the Weregirl Trilogy and a must-read this fall, on shelves November 1, 2017. Weregirl, the first of the trilogy, presented the origin story of Nessa Kurland, a high school junior focused on winning a college scholarship for cross-country running... until a dangerous late-night encounter with a trapped wolf in the woods renders her transformed: not just into a more competitive runner, but into a WEREGIRL learning to transform with the moon and use her powers to combat evil in her small town. In Bell’s follow-up novel, CHIMERA, Nessa is stronger and has more control over her transformations, but there’s more at stake than just the moon cycles.
Nessa’s world is disrupted by catastrophe striking her hometown of Tether, Michigan, breaking her family apart. Nessa’s mother is taken away by the FBI and the charges are deadly serious: she’s held without bail and declared a threat to Homeland Security. Vivian’s secret past as a leading scientific researcher brings Nessa to discover there is more to her own story than she ever imagined.
CHIMERA poses critical questions about the ethics of scientific experimentation, as scientists toe the line between innovation and disaster in the quest to control and shape the world we live in. At once, the forces of magic, science, and nature converge to set in motion the first battle of an epic war... with Nessa at the heart of it.
But don’t dismay, werewolf lovers! Bell’s sequel promises more wolves, more shifters, a forest full of enchantment, and an all-around supernatural adrenaline rush.
Filled with romance, tragedy, perseverance, and adventure, CHIMERA: A Weregirl Novel is a breathtaking continuation of the Weregirl saga, proving to be THE not-to-be-missed YA novel of the fall season. Crafted by a team of feminist writers who passionately believe that girls are just as good as boys (if not better!) at pretty much everything.
Weregirl, the first in the series, will also be available in audiobook on November 1, 2017 thanks to a partnership between Chooseco and Audible.
