"Kelly creates fundamentally strong, archetypal characters, and readers will easily find themselves invested in their fates. But rather than simply allowing their words and deeds to speak for themselves, Kelly frequently stops to explain how their personalities and past experiences inform their actions. These passages slow the book’s momentum."

Synopsis

"Metamorphosis is about change. This book continues the story of Riccardo, Flynn, and George.

It explores the notion of people’s ability to change their basic personalities. Are people only able to change the externals of their lives? It is the second book in the series and follows Pathways in the Mind.

What happens to the boys after Marion dies? She had wanted to make a change in their lives to make them better people. This story raises the psychological question of nature versus nurture. Can people really change the fundamental part of themselves? It delves deeply into backgrounds of Flynn, George, and Riccardo in order to find out why they became the people they are. What would it take to induce them to change? It also looks at the role post-traumatic stress disorder can have on the life of an individual.

All three are alpha-type males. As in a pride of lions, there can be only one alpha unless their abilities are so different that they can respect each other for their individual skills. This story tells of the treachery and lies that can evolve through misconceptions of truth.

It is also a story of deep and abiding love and the ability of the human spirit to rise above life’s tragic influences and find a new beginning."
