    I really liked this book I thought this was a great book When I first read about this book I was kind of confused that Steven was the main character I thought it would be Caitlyn but it all panned out in the end Also, it was nothing like I thought it would be, however I was pleasantly surprised I recommend this book 100x s over

    From jbgarner58.wordpress.com As I hoped for some book sales to fill my pantry, I was fortunate enough to get a new book to chow down on instead That s right, it s time for another Starving Review This week s main course is Hybrid, the first book in a paranormal romance series, The Evolution Trilogy What you say The guy who writes superhero and wrestling fiction picking up a romance book To that I say, Broaden your minds The Tale of the Tape had a huge romance sub plot Plus I was starving As per my standards, I will do my best to make this review as spoiler free as possible and to see this in the light of a fan of the genre in question.Let s start off by saying this On a technical level, the writing is quite good The pacing, character development, and depth of story are well ahead of many of Hybrid s brothers and sisters in the paranormal romance genre On a personal relationship level, there are fewer contrivances and those that do come up fit into the well worn tropes of the romance genre in other words, they are things that the readers will want to see The inevitable romantic entanglements and love dodecahedrons fit together much naturally than most books of this kind.In fact, talking about the genre tropes, at first blush, Hybrid seems to be a standard, if better written, book of the type, very paint by numbers However, at about the quarter way mark, Ms Wester eschews the paint brush and brings in an industrial car painting robot, setting it on CRAZY mode That may sound bad It s not In fact, it s almost glorious in the insanity it reaps You see, Hybrid goes off the rails now in the sense of the personal relationships and characterizations, which remain solid, but in a very Silver Age comic book 1950s atomic horror kind of way As the paranormal species that is core to the book is introduced and explained, the book takes glee as it smashes basic conventions and sets up the world these beings live in and how they operate I can t really go into details without major spoilers, but simply let me say that I, as a comic book fan, really loved the general crazy involved It is a good kind of crazy and one that, for a genre that generally has angst that sense, delights in that as much as the interpersonal conflicts.Another point where Hybrid bucks the usual paranormal romance formula is in the rather expansive range of characters and points of view it dances over, adding to the narrative depth Add on to that the fact that the main PoV character for large sections of the book is the male lead and you get another turn off the over trod path of the first person, female lead formula Refreshing.Now, Hybrid isn t without flaws Sometimes the over the top elements become too much even for a lover of such things to take seriously One incident in particular involving a mass mental manipulation that should be vague enough to dodge the Spoiler Police really made me pause and the later explanation of it did nothing to make it better There is little action, which while not a requirement in this genre can add to it, and the overall dramatic and romantic tension is uneven at times There is a fair amount of world building that goes on in this book and, while Wester does a fairly good job at weaving it in with the actual story, there is a bit on info dumping and a few cringe worthy scenes of As You Know exposition Final flaw the sudden climax and twist to set up the next book comes out of nowhere at the last minute, though the epilogue sweeps in and salvages part of it with a clever bit of follow up on foreshadowing early in the book.Let s bring it all together then.Hybrid is a solid paranormal romance and a good start for it s series of books There are some intriguing surprises and Vanessa Wester wisely is not afraid to blaze off of the over used pathways other writers in this genre have tread, bringing about a gleeful insanity to the whole thing It s not perfect, but it stands above the majority of this genre that I ve read If you enjoy this genre, definitely give this a read If you don t, you may still want to give it a shot The first book is free, after all.FINAL VERDICT Vanilla on the outside, crazy mix of flavors on the inside

    I have added the 5 star reviews I have received during October on UK I was over the moon with these Thanks a lotVanessa xx5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Debut, 24 Oct 2012 By J S Houliston Jan West Sussex See all my reviews I was a bit dubious at first about this type of novel as I am not really into this sort of theme but I was pleasantly surprised Once you have met the main characters and realise that things are going to go off at a different angle it all becomes clear and is intriguing I am really looking forward to book 2 to find out what happens next 5.0 out of 5 stars Altogether good read., 12 Oct 2012 By nana Can t quite believe that this is a first novel, the quality of writing is smooth and vivid, and the characters solicit sympathy and emotion in various degrees This is not really my kind of book, my kind of genre, but I must confess to having become engrossed in the style and the well paced delivery of discovery.There is undoubted hints, or at least flavours of the Twighlight tales about it, but Hyprid has an altogether silkier feel to it, if that makes sense I won t give any plot away, but the underlying idea is clever and well thought through.Anyway, it s a good read,and I have no hesitation in recommending it Help other customers find the most helpful reviews 5.0 out of 5 stars an unexpected gem of a story, 10 Oct 2012 By Silk I started reading this book and within a couple of pages was gripped by the style of writing Worrying that it was going to be a British twighlight I was soon proven wrong as the story unfolded into something much much better I loved it and am eagerly awaiting the rest of the trilogy Vanessa if you re reading this, please make it soon 5.0 out of 5 stars Didn t think I would enjoy, 1 Oct 2012 By J Smith toon_james First let me make it clear I am a 34 year old man who has a tendancy to shout a lot if someone mentions the words Twilight Vampires are meant to rip the throats out of young girls not.Sorry distracted.Seriously I did not think I would enjoy this story, but even after the first few pages I was hooked Without including spoilers, the story is a twist on the now familiar girl meets vampire premise The characters are engaging enough, but what really sets this book apart is Westers talent as a writer She raises questions throughout the story making you read before revealing the answers in a satisfying way but not without raising a few questions to make you read on.The plot has plenty of originality and does not feel forced at any point The pace changes at appropriate points and ensures the story flows along without getting bogged down There is also plenty of humour to lighten the sometimes dark world we are exploring.Overall I have been very impressed by Vanessa Westers writing I hope the trilogy is completed soon.

    This is a story that could be considered a paranormal romance, but it s so much than that The story starts out with a young woman, Caitlin, headed to college and introduces you to her and her four roommates , getting right into the feel of starting out in a new place in college and the different types of people you will meet I immediately liked Caitlin and could understand her situation and the feelings she had of being in a new place, both excitement and intimidation A new place, new people and an unsure environment and the last thing she s worried about is a boyfriend or falling in love, even though it seems that people are looking all around and yet she bumps into Steven, a tall, dark, handsome and athletic guy you expect to be another womanizer and yet he s not Steven is a complex character and he s sincerely intrigued by Caitlin You spend the first half or so of the story learning about Caitlin and Steven and watching their relationship develop Then there is an unexpected turn of events, which sets the baseline for the remainder of the story You see Steven taken away from everyone he knows and everyone he loves, no one knows who he is, or that he exists You come to learn about the next evolution in humankind and their trials and tribulations, their wants and needs and the story leaves you wanting for All of the main and supporting characters are well built with complex personalities which brings the story to life You can feel the pain they feel and understand their feelings from excitement, fear, love and lust to sorrow and uncertainty about the future I couldn t put this book down and read from the start to about 63% in before I stopped and by the time I was about 80% done I knew I d be buying the remaining two in the trilogy.I gave this book a rating of 5 out of 5 stars because aside from a single sentence which didn t seem grammatically correct, the story was nearly flawless The characters and story had me enchanted from day one and the plot unfolded at just the right pace This isn t your typical paranormal or vampire story, but it will keep you on your toes and isn t full of fluff , but has a lot of deeper issues going on in the sidelines along with the main plot When I found out this was the authors debut novel I couldn t believe it I can t wait to see what else Vanessa writes in the remainder of this trilogy and beyond I ve already borrowed the trilogy on the Kindle so I can decide if I want to buy them all in the Kindle edition or in a physical book.

    As promised I have read and reviewed this wonderful book by Vanessa Wester and really can recommend this I gave it a well deserved 5 stars This book is introduced with a prologue, which initially I didn t understand, but it really helped once the main story began to unfoldThe opening chapter of Hybrid begins with our introduction to one of the main protagonist, Caitlin, and gives a narrative about her first semester at University and attempts to settle in on campus We also begin to meet quite a few of the other minor characters and these fill out the narrative rather nicely.Before too long we are then become acquainted with the main protagonist of the piece and her eventual love interest Steven.From the first description we have of Steven it is obvious that he is a very special individual and this draws you in and piqued my interest as a lover of all things paranormal.The attraction between the two is almost tangible and instantaneous but not at the cost of the storyline in this instance.They gradually develop into an item and then their romance is cut short by the appearance of some of Steven s long lost and also unknown family members, and with that a history that he cannot run away from The consequence is that all their lives are altered irrevocably and also apparently forever.This story has a twist in the tale regarding the vampires in this story as it takes a refreshing slant on the usual vampire tale, which is ultimately explained extremely well.I loved this book and especially the detail regarding Freshers week and it took me back to my own memories of that time at University.I was captivated and finished the book in short shrift and was compelled to immediately download the second in the series Complications A thoroughly well deserved 5 and an author to look out for in the future

    3.5 stars, and that mostly because this is a YA NA book which isn t normally my target reading.A group of kids are starting their first year at university, trying to fit in, adjusting to being away from home, reinventing themselves into who they will become For some, it is easier than for others Caitlin shares a hall with three other girls, one of which is horribly homesick and struggling to fit in Lonely, homesick girls make the easiest targets, and before she has a chance to go home, she dies of an apparent suicide Steven is handsome and confident, and he and Caitlin share an instant bond When Caitlin returns home to sort out her hall mate s death, another woman targets Steven, leaving him confused and with an odd bruise on his neck.Caitlin returns to university to pick up where she left off with Steven and the two rapidly become a couple, until one night when she is kidnapped to lure Steven out and then he is kidnapped and all memory of him and his existence is expunged.What is Steven And what are all the people claiming to be a superior race who are secreted away inside a volcano deep in the ian jungle The story was interesting The author creates a hidden society, a modern day Utopia, and yet humanity almost always chooses freedom over confined quarters, no matter how perfect the living conditions I think the author has done an excellent job showing the differing personalities and societal cliques She s done a nice job of ending the first book in the trilogy, teasing you into the next book without leaving you wanting for answers to the theme in the first book Worth the read.
