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*

Note: This review contains NO spoilers

This is one collaboration that I can absolutely gush about! I already enjoy Stacey Rourke's books, and I have only read a short story by Tish Thawer that's in Fairy Tale Confessions. So, when they announced that they're writing a book together... Oh hell yeah! Well, I have got to say... Wow! This is one action-filled science fiction story that has its twists that kept me turning the pages.

Let's start off with the characters. These authors created amazing and dimensional character. Each character had their own quirks and personalities that made them stand out as individuals, as well as their mutations, or as it is called in the book anomalies. As stated in the book, there are some anomalies that are obvious, but there are those that are not. And, that's just it when it came to Thia's mutation... That was revealed at that moment when it was a major turning point in the story and to Thia herself. Stacey and Tish really threw me for a loop on that one...haha! From beginning to almost the end, I kept wondering what in the world is Thia's mutation...OMG! What a secret to keep...Whoa! I really enjoyed that... And what a reveal that was! Yup! Stacey and Tish created these amazingly crazy characters with individual and peculiar personalities!

Now, with the incredibly amazing character development, the world building/setting comes hand in hand with these characters. We see this future world through the eyes of these anomalies. We "see" their struggle. We "see" how society treats them. We "see" a world that is pretty similar to reality... just with characters that have special "abilities" that society doesn't understand and fear. We see the strengths and weaknesses of both those afflicted with mutations and those that are not. And, it is a scary world they live in.

The blending of the science fiction, paranormal, fantasy, romance genres worked amazingly well in this story. I also loved that no genres overshadowed the other throughout. I got the excitement from the action, mystery, and the twists. I got the emotional ride from the subtle romance and the dire straits that these characters have to endure.

TS901: Anomaly is an exciting read that is action-packed with twists along the way. Stacey Rourke and Tish Thawer has gotten me obsessing for the next book...haha!!
