Metaphase: Beauty in the Chaos by M Street took me by surprise. Metaphase is the second novel in M Street’s Mitosis series. In this installment, readers are given a flashback to Piper’s literal infancy and, soon afterward, it picks up where the first novel left off. Piper is dealing with the fact that her brother, Eli, murdered their mother. All the while, she is also dealing with the fact that she isn’t just a normal young woman. She is, in fact, the Guardian Princess of the mature world. A world of auras, colors, beauty, destruction, and power.
I don’t think I have read a young adult paranormal novel that has kept my interest or attention for so long. The thing I noticed when reading this book was that no matter how long a break I took between chapters, I could still easily pick it up and remember where I left off. Street doesn’t lose the plot in between words; in fact, Street does a wonderful job with the flow of the novel. Street’s prose was deliciously woven and romantic. Despite the fact that Piper has to deal with very fantastical situations, she is still very relatable and, as a reader, I appreciate the fact that Street created a relatable and compelling main character. All teens, whether they’re young men or women, have gone through a shift of responsibilities that can be daunting. My aura was glowing brightly as I read Metaphase. I also thoroughly enjoyed the colorful and vivid illustrations. I recommend this novel for young adults looking for a unique take on the paranormal genre. Metaphase: Beauty in the Chaos by M Street is truly one of a kind.
