Dream Cast
Author Maggie Lynch's Dream Cast For The Forest People
I thought a lot about this when I first started writing the books. In fact, my Pinterest board for this series has a number of models and cast members I used to inspire my description of characters. I used their likeness and my imagination of their performance as I wrote the story. Below are the primary cast members. As my creation of this cast was a decade ago when I first conceived the series, it may be that some of actors are now considered too old to play the parts I’ve assigned and others would not choose to do fantasy.
  • Camryn - Cary Mulligan
  • Ohar - Nicholas Hoult
  • Dagger - Ian Somerhalder or Jared Leto
  • Abrani-Daj - CCH Pounder
  • Koska - Anna Poppelwell
  • Sela - Alexandra Blatt

 The Book Junkie Reads . . . Review of . . . CHAMELEON: THE CHOOSING (The Forest People, #2) . . .  New book. New journey for Camryn. She's grown, changing, becoming more. Is she dangerous to those around her, the forest, herself. I fell right in to this one. I was wrapped up and enjoying what was offered. Rachel Jacobs' did the narration and it was good. I felt familiar with her voice. It was like a known companion. Through it all the new powers, concerns, challenges, I felt a little tickle in my mind that there was something more to come. Adding the power of Camryn, and the strength and qualities of a dragon, but not any dragon, a thunder dragon had me on the edge to soak up as much as I could with this one. I found me a wonderful adventure that had a deep connection to finding that family bond and wanting to do all you can to protect it. Then taking on more to make sure nothing comes between it all. Camryn rocks.   

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Maggie Lynch. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

A human chameleon. An endangered mythical forest. Can she bond with a dragon in time to save her new family?
Camryn Painter has enough identity issues without discovering a deadly new magic coursing through her veins. Though her chameleon-like abilities herald her as the forest people’s savior, she’s terrified by the growing dark power within her. And it only gets worse when she realizes that to control this new magic she’ll have to bond with a deadly Thunder Dragon…
As Camryn embarks on her dangerous quest, she discovers that the same human tyrants who experimented on her are behind multiple grisly murders as well. To fulfill her destiny, she may just have to infiltrate her former prison.
Can Camryn master her new abilities to stave off more death, or will power-hungry humans destroy her magical home for good?

Chameleon: The Choosing is the second book in The Forest People YA paranormal fantasy series. If you like heroic challenges, original creatures, and frightening battles between dark and light, then you'll love Maggie Lynch's rousing adventure.
