The Hunted of 2060 REVIEWED!
By Natasha Brooks
From Bare Back Magazine
This review is from: The Hunted of 2060 (Volume 1) (Paperback)
The Hunted 2060 is an awesome sci-fi thriller about the future. The author takes the reader on a very exciting trip into a future society set in Alaska in the year 2060 - into a future that is not like our own. The first chapter delivers a cleverly written description of the main character and the plight that the protagonist must face.
19-year old college student - April dealt with the changes that controlled her body and her urges. Adopted at birth, her true identity was never told to her until she had a chance meeting with her siblings and was told the truth about her past. She was then introduced into a world that was unknown yet very familiar to her. She fought against the beast within her as she continued to control her body from changing form as well as her urges throughout the story. April continued to attempt to maintain a normal life while continuing to attend college.
April adjusted to her new reality of becoming who she was to become - one of "the hunted." Half human and half wolf-like species, April was introduced to the "clan" and learned about her family and their supernatural/alien connection called shifters that can change into different forms on earth and read minds of humans.
It was intriguing to learn more about the future society, the storyline and, the characters as the story progress throughout the book. The story was filled with several twists and turns that seemed well thought out.
The characters were believable and interesting. The author took her time in revealing the plot. I was impressed with the amount of imagination used to describe the story line, the characters and the surroundings. All of the details of the future society were woven in a well written manner. Just imagine a futurist novel with sky cars, hologram textbooks and robots to name a few coupled with a supernatural species of beings with supernatural abilities and supernatural twists that are very well put together.
I would recommend this book for anyone who is interested in reading a good sci-fi book.
I grew up partly in California viewing mountains outside my window, and then Florida under the warm sun. After graduating UCF in Creative Writing I travelled extensively in Asia for eight years. I began writing THE PARANORMAL novels in 2009, and the ENTER TOMORROW dystopian novels in 2016 (though released in 2017).
I have a Thai Siamese from Thailand named Lotus, and a Tabby from the orphanage named Ash. Both show up in Exotiqa and Quantum State.
When not writing, I love reading books from Kindle Unlimited, cooking vegetarian dishes, watching movies, gardening, and spending time with friends.
