BOOK REVIEW - The Sphinx Project (The Chimaera Chronicles #1) by Kate Hawkings

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.


Has a book ever left you speechless when you have just finish read the last few sentences? The Chimaera Chronicles will do just that!
From the moment you begin reading to the very ending of the book, you find yourself glued to wherever you are, unable to withdraw you eyes from the book.

The Sphinx Project is a fast moving plot with plenty of action packed scenes and nail-biting moment which will literally leave you on the edge of your seat. Kate Hawkings has created a magnificent YA paranormal book and had managed to grab everything that should be in a YA paranormal book series, from kick-ass heroins, such as Michaela and Mouse, to unexpected twists and turns that you didn't see coming.

If you haven't got this superb YA paranormal book on your MUST-HAVE list like in right now, you don't know what you missing out on but hey, it's not late at all to do so because once you have read this book, you will be blown away by the incredibleness of The Chimaera Chronicles!

All I can think about right now is WHEN CAN I GET MY HANDS ON THE NEXT ONE?!!

Yes, It's that amazing! A book that captures your attention from the very beggining and leaves you speechless at the end. . .It's a winner!
