Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer  KMeng
Connie Lionheart is once again dealing with the stress and dilemmas of the magical society. Ever since the first book, Secret of the Sirens, Connie has been growing and strengthening to defeat the evil being, Kullervo. When Connie first found out that she was a Universal Companion, or able to communicate with any mythological creature, she had no clue what she was up against. Connie started to train with a rock dwarf in the earlier books, but Connie now finds herself learning different attacks on her own. She plans to use these attacks and weapons to defeat Kullervo. The leaders of the society want to keep her safe and free from danger, so they do not want Connie to go anywhere near him. Meanwhile, Connie's brother, Simon, has been acting strangely around the woods of their home. Does he have any connection with the chimera that has been roaming around? What will the society do about Simon, and can Connie defeat both the chimera and Kullervo?

I thought that The Chimera's Curse was a good end to the Companion Quartet. Although it was a bit slow at times, the relationships and intentions of the characters were very realistic. I also liked how Golding incorporated many conflicts to stand in Connie's way and the steps she took to overcome them. Unlike the first in the series, I did not think that this book was a page turner. The vocabulary was written primarily for readers that are in their early teens. I would only recommend this book to people who have read the other three, but I do recommend this series to everyone who has spare time.
