The Chemistis the newest book by teen vampire author Stephenie Meyer. It was billed as a Jason Bourne type thriller (although in one review it was listed as a budding romance... uh... no). I listened to it on audiobook, and despite it being 17 HOURS LONG, I still plowed through it in just a few weeks team. It was fast paced and entertaining. Some of the "twists" were pretty transparent. But overall a good read!
My rating: 3.5 stars

ex-employers. To her horror, the information she acquires only makes her
situation more dangerous.
Resolving to meet the threat head-on,
she prepares for the toughest fight of her life but finds herself

heroine with a very specialized skill set. And she shows once again why
she’s one of the world’s bestselling authors.
