Chloe King is a normal girl. She goes to class (most of the time), fights with her mom, and crushes on a boy…or two. But around her sixteenth birthday, Chloe finds that perhaps she isn’t so normal after all. There’s the heightened night vision, the super fast reflexes – oh, and the claws.
As she discovers who she is – and where she comes from – it is clear she is not alone. And someone is trying to get her.
Chloe has nine lives. But will nine be enough?

Chloe King is intelligent and thoughtful. Chloe King in the books is shallow. However, in the tv show, she's got a huge heart, and always puts her friends happiness above her own. She's still going through that "coming of age" period that she is in the book, but she's doing it a lot more noticeably, and realistically. She's a three dimensional character who, while at times still frustrating to the audience, always manages to come off authentic and real. She doesn't just jump into two relationships because she can. She's honestly torn between two boys, and isn't going to just stop being so because one won't kiss her. In fact, she already knows she can't kiss Brian without killing him (another thing not mentioned in the first book), and she still can't deny her feelings for him. Yes, in the show Chloe was turned a little more vanilla than in the book, as she doesn’t' swear or even smoke a regular cigarette, but this actually adds to her character. It works for her.
