Poet At Large Reviews, TV, The Nine Lives of Chloe King   Leave a comment

The ten episode first Season of The Nine Lives of Chloe King is in so many ways a whole different world from the book of the same name.  The Mai (which I now learn is pronounced My) of the TV series are in some ways more vampiric.  In one episode two Mai from Brazil actually kill just for fun which the Mai in the novels are said to never do.  This choice is something of a let down.  The addition of the Jackals is however a nice variation to a world.  The thought that all the old gods had human children makes a more complete world.  Many things in the stories get diluted down for TV viewers.  The change of many of the characters to allow for the constraints of a TV series are also obvious, but not worth objecting to.  There is however some very good writing and well thought out story lines. The plot twists make a nice roller coaster ride for the viewer.  The character interaction is enough to make you come back for more.  In the end, I think it would be sad to leave it at the cliff hanger of the first season.  I want more…

If you have not yet seen the first season of The Nine Lives of Chloe King is is available on Netflix
