Hey, It's A Release Blitz for "TS901: Anomaly Rise of the Rebels" by Stacey Rourke & Tish Thawer
Title: TS901: Anomaly Rise of the Rebels
Series: The TS901 Chronicles
Author: Stacey Rourke & Tish Thawer
Genre: NA Fantasy Dystopian
Tainted water for the good of the people. Fluoride and vitamins to sustain the health of the human race.
Added ingredients to extend and elevate the quality of life.
All good things, right?
Thia Kelly has been changed by the TS901 chemical in the world’s water supply. Now, forced into hiding with the other inflicted outcasts, she struggles to survive as her powers emerge.
Evan Daniels hunted for others like himself, and finding Thia suddenly brought meaning back into his life. Love blossomed between the strange couple while they searched for a way to reverse the effects. Unfortunately, the Government had something else in mind.
Super-soldier creation on a mass scale was their end goal, and thanks to an unfortunate family tie, Evan became Patient #1.
Good-guy? Bad-guy? The world isn’t sure, but Thia is left with only one choice––save the ass of the world’s first Anomaly who just happens to be her boyfriend.
My Thoughts: Oh, Tainted Love! And Anomalies Acting More Human Than Ordinaries.
If you're into novels about the little guy coming out and fighting back and that underdog just so happens to be a whole number super powered humans, this novel will definitely interest you. The authors created a world where powers are hidden or seen as a disgrace, but it all takes a turn by the end, you're just left with a cliffhanger for what's to come next for this changing world.
TS901 chemical was introduced into the world’s water supply. Instead of improving American's lives, some have a reaction by developing various anomalies that forced them into seclusion. Anomalies or "Malies" became segregated from ordinary or "Narys". Thia Kelly, struggled to accept as her emerging powers, deciding to use pills to suppress her anomaly. So when her Maly boyfriend, Evan Daniels, becomes most wanted after he left to be the bridge between Naries and Malies. Thia brings together a group of anomalies to find Evan, but what they discover is so much worse. Only one throng is clear anomalies must stick together to survive and Thia must rise above, freely using her powers.
Overall, it was a good read. The two authors definitely know how to write some witty script, (LOVE GIGI), seriously sarcasm and wit amidst danger always a great way to lighten up the harsh moments. Now two issues I had were formatting and character perspective. The issues go hand in hand really, but I didn't like how the story would jump from one charter to the next in the same chapter, which made me have to think twice about where I was in the actual story. The big fight scenes were also intense and interesting. I'm still a bit weirded out by the one from the lab in The Hill. (Read it and you'll know why) I've already discussed this book with my friends and I'm sure I'd have been the one out of us all that would've become an anomaly. So if you're looking for a new read involving a new look at humanity and how people deal with change and band together in crisis with superpowers, this story will be a good read for you.
