Throwback Review: The Nine Lives of Chloe King (Nine Lives of Chloe King #1-3) by Celia Thomson


I previously had a different book blog, and I had a bunch of problems with the hosting company I used for the blog, and all of my content was deleted.  I managed to salvage some of my reviews from back then by compiling what  I wrote on Goodreads, Amazon, and Barnes and Nobles review sections.  See some that I have already posted here.


Goodreads Summary:


Chloe King is a normal girl. She goes to class (most of the time), fights with her mom, and crushes on a boy… or two. But around her sixteenth birthday, Chloe finds that perhaps she isn’t so normal after all. There’s the heightened night vision, the super fast reflexes – oh, and the claws.

As she discovers who she is – and where she comes from – it is clear she is not alone. And someone is out to get her.

Chloe has nine lives. But will nine be enough?

My Thoughts:

I did not know this was a tv show prior to getting the book, and it was already cancelled by the time I heard of it, so I have no idea if that was any good. I guess not since it was cancelled. Anyway, the book was interesting enough. It wasn’t great or anything, but it was different, so I enjoyed it. Chloe is a 16 year old girl, that starts going through some changes. She would share the weirdness happening with her friends, but they are starting to like each other, so Chloe starts to feel like a third wheel and decides to work things out on her own. She is turning in a Mai (cat type person), and there are assassins out to rid the world of Mai, so there is some action where both sides try to kill each other. There is some corruption in leadership.

Fave quote:

“Your generation has no sense of responsibility to a group, a calling higher than your own. You treat random friends like family and family like strangers. You want to dither your life away, pursuing one pleasure after another. That is not a path; that is a waste of life.”
