Two aliens have wandered Earth for centuries. The Changeling has survived by adapting the forms of many different organisms. The Chameleon destroys anything or anyone that threatens it.
Now, a sunken relic that holds the key to their origins calls to them to take them home—but the Chameleon has decided there's only room for one.
Joe Haldeman's Camouflage, a near-future SF thriller that alternates between the experiences of two different aliens who land on Earth, skillfully weaves its disparate plot threads until the cop-out, deus ex machina ending. This is a more sophisticated, if less than satisfying, handling of a similar situation in Hal Clement's Needle (1950). Agent, Ralph Vicinanza. .

A Good Read
A good Science Fiction thriller featuring two powerful aliens on earth. Would make for a good movie.
I thought this book great the ending was quick though, the beginning and middle are interesting but at times very slow. The end like most books are worth waiting for. Must read
Great story but weak ending.
