TS901: Dominion, sequel to TS901: Anomaly is another hit from Stacey Rourke and Tish Thawer. I was very excited to dive back in to the TS901 world.
I think that Stacey and Tish got my hint about wanting to know Gigi's back story, and did they ever deliver. A plot twist I would have never seen coming with her story. You also get a little more of Eugene's story, which pulls at the heartstrings a little. The whole book is filled with twist and turns you will not see coming. You think the story line is heading in one direction and bam, its leaping all the way to left field, and you're like "oh my god" I must read faster to find out what is going to happen next.
Dominion takes place shortly after Anomaly. With the maly rebellion taking place , the characters have started to really embrace their anomalies, to fight back against the nary army on the Hill. Their main goal "Save Gigi". Thia, Evan, Jules, and Lance are heading back into the Hill to save Gigi. Leaving Eugene behind to sleep off his drinking, he deserved it from what he had to bare witness to. As the team was getting ready to sneak into the Hill from and underground tunnel, opening a door this is where the plot twist comes into play. I cannot go into detail, for you have to have that element of surprise while you are reading to feel how the characters felt at this given second.
Through the story I put myself in Thia's shoes from the standpoint of trust. Trust is everything. You have to have trust in everything, from relationships, romantic or platonic to knowing what you are doing. Dominion questions trust in many aspects.
Characters in this book are not who you think they are, just because they have the outward appearance of those you know and trust, doesn't mean you should.
I highly recommend TS901: Dominion. You will have to read TS:901 Anomaly before you read this. Both books are fast paced, action packed, and have witty humor thrown in. It really makes this books a great read. I have become a huge fan of the characters and the world Stacey and Tish have created. I cannot wait to see what these two very talented authors can cook up in the next TS:901.
I get so excited every time my aunt (Stacey Rourke) has a new book that comes out. I was excited to see that she teamed up with Tish Thawer. They both are amazing authors who both bring a lot of talent to this book. They work amazing as a team. Their writing styles flow together very well.
TS901 is a story about the government tainting the water with the TS901 chemical (fluoride and vitamins) it was supposed to sustain the health of the human race. However when the government released the chemical into the water supply it caused a genetic mutation in some and nothing in others.
The main character, Thia Kelly, is now in hiding along with the rest of the inflicted outcasts also known as the maly’s. She is looked up to because she works well with the non inflicted humans and the inflicted, she tries keeping the peace between the two worlds. There has been a lot of high tension between the two worlds.
Evan Daniels is the son of one of the leading Generals, he has been inflicted with the TS901. Thia and Evan had a love that was blossoming, but the government had other ideas with Evan and made him Patient #1. Evan turns himself in. He wants to help the Maly’s and thinks that by turning himself over, he will help the government to find a cure. Little does he know what he really is getting himself into.
Thia going about her business after not seeing Evan in a while has learned that they put a bounty out for him. She knows that there is no way that he is as dangerous as what the government says. She doesn't believe the story that is on the news about Evan. Thia knows that she needs to save him. So she gets together a plan and sets off to save her boyfriend. This is where Gigi and other characters are introduced and Gigi is awesome love her character and love her mutation. Maybe a side story can be written about her and how she came to be. Hint hint Stacey and Tish.
Thia looks normal on the outside, and this is why she in fact can get along with all the inflicted and the non inflicted. Every turning of the page you hope that she reveals what her mutation is. When she finally uses her mutation you are stunned and can’t believe that she was ever willing to hide the mutation that she has and how she was able to do so. I will not give away exactly what she is you will have to read the story for yourself.
I recommend this book to all. Its fast paced action packed and of course witty humor is thrown in, which makes for a great read. With this book I am going to pass along the drink recipe for Mutation that goes great with this book and was created by Stacey. I mean perfect friday night mix, good books and a good drink.
