5.0 out of 5 stars Polished imaginationAugust 2, 2010

This review is from: The Hunted of 2060 (Volume 1) (Paperback)
"The Hunted of 2060" cuts instantly to the chase suiting
well the teen-and-above audience that it is pitched at.
Paced briskly from the outset, Ami Blackwelder creates
a futuristic blend of sci-fi and teen-female-adventure.
However, this novel has more about it than the recent
blitz of teen vampire novels. You can see how
Blackwelder has taken the time to project a fully
plausible future based on the best and worst of
current society that we can all relate to without it
being in any way Dystopian.
Written in the first person from the perspective of April,
an everyday student from 2060 whose life is spun
completely around when she discovers that she is in
fact a human /alien hybrid, which in 2060 means that
she's suddenly little more than hunted game riding on time.
With nicely digestible chapter lengths flowing freely
throughout and dialogue set for the teenage reader
upwards, Blackwelder is a name to be watched
closely in this genre.
