The Hunted of 2060 (The Saga of 2060, #1)The Hunted of 2060 by Ami Blackwelder

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

During the story April faces many obstacles including being hunted by the military, discovering secrets about her past and dealing with feelings for two different species of men. The beginning of the book deals with April’s discovery of her alter ego and the alien hybrid family she never knew she had. Then the book changes gears becomes a battle for survival and acceptance.
The Hunted of 2060 is a very unique story. It’s a romantic science fiction thriller set in futuristic Alaska during the year 2060. April is a college sophomore who after her nineteenth birthday learns that there is something hidden inside of her, another life form. She’s transforming. Metamorphosing into something the rest of the world thought died out years ago, something wild, something feared.

The story follows April as she struggles with her new identity, a new family and the dangers of keeping them secret in a world that fears what she can become. April also is torn between two loves. One in the human world and another that is related to her alien side.

The Hunted of 2060 is a well written and interesting novel laced with appealing characters, great emotional dialogue and fast paced action. At times I felt it had a similar atmospheric feeling to that of Stephenie Meyer's Twilignt Series and in fact I feel that this book would even attract a similar audience.

This book comes highly recommended for all ages but I think teens especially teen girls will find it very enjoyable. As an added feature author Ami Rebecca Blackwelder has included an appendix at the end of the book filled with images of all of the main characters.

Phantom Four: Children of the GravePhantom Four: Children of the Grave by Roger Wilson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Phantom Four: Children of the grave, is an urban, action packed, supernatural story that begins in Nepal India and ends on the streets of New York. The Story follows the exploits of four young quadruplet brothers who die mysteriously as child then twenty years later rise from the grave as young men with supernatural powers. The four use their powers to fight the forces of evil that have begun to threaten the citizens of New York. Apparently the Devil has risen and formed an army to take over the world. The only thing that stands in his way is these newly formed superheroes.

The story is easy to follow and is uniquely written in a screenplay format. As the story unfolds we follow the four brothers through their lives, first as children then as apparitions learning to control their new powers. We see how the brothers cope with their new found fame as they begin battling the agents of evil on the city streets.

The action of the story is another unique feature of the book. Many of the scenes are very visual and read like scenes out of a Japanese animated movie or even a fighting video game such as Tekken or Mortal Kombat. Even some of the dialogue helps to relay this same feeling.

This is a book that would do well as a graphic novel. In fact Phantom Four is really a graphic novel without the graphics. If you like action packed fight scenes, battles between good and evil then this is a book for you.
