Review for TS901: Anomaly by Stacey Rourke and Tish Thawer
TS901: Anomaly by Stacey Rourke and Tish Thawer
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.
TS901:Anomaly - Rise of the Rebels
TS901: Anomaly is a gritty dystopian novel by Stacey Rourke and Tish Thawer. I've loved books by Stacey Rourke and when I read the blurb for this book, I knew I just HAD to read this one too. I thought the book would be a bit chaotic because two different authors were writing it, but when I read this book, I have to say that the writing style blended together beautifully.
TS901: Anomaly does not have the same feel as I've come to expect and love by Stacey Rourke, its grittier and a little bit more serious I guess? Nevertheless, it was a great read. It did have its sassy moments and was pretty entertaining.
The Malies were my favourites, obviously. I loved how all the characters were so different and had a distinct voice. I feel I enjoyed this book more because it was pretty fast paced and the descriptions of the characters and their powers were pretty great. It was like watching a mini movie in my head.
The scene with the lab is still giving me nightmares.
I just wish that this book was a little more polished. I was waiting for a wow moment in the book and maybe because I guessed one of the major reveals in the plots, I didn't really get that impact? I dunno.
Overall, I think that TS901: Anomaly was a pretty good start to a series. This series has a lot of scope to grow and become a fan favourite. I can't wait to see where the authors take it!
Dystopian and Sci-Fi lovers will enjoy this book.
