Tucked away at an upscale, private boarding school in Brindle Hollow, Washington, seventeen-year-old Eden East comes face to face with a hideous creature on her walk back to her dorm. Shaken to her core, she's left questioning the world around her, and soon finds herself entering a friendship with a hot, new student named Alexander. 

Little does she know, Alex is a Guardian Angel, sent from Midway to protect her from those dangerous creatures—known as Darkling—lurking in the forest outside Brindle Hall. It isn’t long before Alex learns this is no ordinary assignment. Eden’s existence holds a secret; something hidden from even herself. 

Eden is thrust into a world where Fallen angels and creatures of the Underworld will stop at nothing to catch her. With Alex at her side and a little help from some of his old friends, they form a formidable front against the enemy. 

Hopefully, it’s not too little, too late.

Chapter 1:(Alex)
     Thomas nudged me in the side. “Dude. Wake up.” 
     “What?” I sat up blinking a few times, trying to gain my bearings. 
     “Ephraim called your name. Looks like you’ve got an assignment.” 
     I looked up to see Ephraim standing in the doorway to his office with a file in hand. His brow was furrowed, looking like his patience was wearing thin.
     “I can’t believe it.” I stretched, then hopped to my feet. “Finally.” 
     “I have an emergency assignment for you, Alexander,” Ephraim explained. 
     “Is it exciting? Something dangerous?” After being pent up in Midway for a few months, I was itching for some action.      
     Midway was a beautiful place where the Guardians resided between assignments, but until we were called for duty, there wasn’t much to do but sit and wait. There were areas for fight training, but that got tiring, and was used mostly by the newbies. 
     “It could be.” Ephraim shrugged, reading the file. “The assignment is a girl. She’s boarding in a private school in Washington and ran into some trouble with a Darkling. Watchers just alerted us.” 
     “How old is she?” 
      Ephraim held up the file, examining it closer. “Seventeen.” 
      “A high schooler?” Damn, the high school assignments were tedious. They were usually low action. “Why was a Darkling after her?” 
      “We think it was a random incident, but she survived. You know the Darkling will be back. It won’t let her live, not after she’s seen it.”
       “Yeah, it’s probably pissed it was a young female who slipped its clutches.” I laughed. “So, I guess I’m heading back to high school?” “Yes, you’ll be a senior at Brindle Hall,” he answered, without a show of emotion. “Because you look the part and have quite a bit of experience with Darkling, you will be her assigned Guardian. Our contacts have already started your enrollment process. You’ll start tomorrow morning and will be in four of her six classes.” 
        “You want me to be visible?” Being seen was usually forbidden, as there were risks to revealing our existence.
        Ephraim’s eyes skimmed the file. “Yes, we want to make sure she is safe, and there is no more threat. Once you confirm this, your assignment will be complete.” 
        Thomas laughed. “Dude, you have the perfect baby face. Teenage girls eat that crap up.” 
         “Screw you,” I snapped. 
         Thomas gave a wide, toothy grin. “You need to lighten up.” 
          “You’ve had too many assignments in sunny California.” 
         Thomas closed his eyes and smiled. “Yes, the salty ocean and sunshine. There’s nothing like it. Surfing is a lot like flying.” 
          “I doubt I’ll be doing much surfing in cloudy, rainy Washington,” I sighed. 
          Thomas stood and slapped me on the shoulder. “It’s been three months since my last assignment. I’d love anything that would get me the heck out of here.” 
          “I’d gladly give this assignment up for you. You could pass for a teenager.” 
          “Maybe, but you have that teen heartthrob deal going on.” 
          “What about Dom?” I asked. 
          Ephraim narrowed his eyes at me. “Dom’s no longer allowed on high school assignments. There are too many female distractions which feed off his already inflated ego.” Thomas and I laughed at his remark.

Hey, It's A Release Blitz for "TS901: Anomaly Rise of the Rebels" by Stacey Rourke & Tish Thawer

Title: TS901: Anomaly Rise of the Rebels
Series: The TS901 Chronicles
Author: Stacey Rourke & Tish Thawer
Genre: NA Fantasy Dystopian 
**On Sale for 99 Pennies**

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 Rating:  📔📔📔📖
My Thoughts: Oh, Tainted Love! And Anomalies Acting More Human Than Ordinaries.
          If you're into novels about the little guy coming out and fighting back and that underdog just so happens to be a whole number super powered humans, this novel will definitely interest you. The authors created a world where powers are hidden or seen as a disgrace, but it all takes a turn by the end, you're just left with a cliffhanger for what's to come next for this changing world. 
         TS901 chemical was introduced into the world’s water supply. Instead of improving American's lives, some have a reaction by developing various anomalies that forced them into seclusion. Anomalies or "Malies" became segregated from ordinary or "Narys". Thia Kelly, struggled to accept as her emerging powers, deciding to use pills to suppress her anomaly. So when her Maly boyfriend, Evan Daniels, becomes most wanted after he left to be the bridge between Naries and Malies. Thia brings together a group of anomalies to find Evan, but what they discover is so much worse. Only one throng is clear anomalies must stick together to survive and Thia must rise above, freely using her powers. 
         Overall, it was a good read. The two authors definitely know how to write some witty script, (LOVE GIGI), seriously sarcasm and wit amidst danger always a great way to lighten up the harsh moments. Now two issues I had were formatting and character perspective. The issues go hand in hand really, but I didn't like how the story would jump from one charter to the next in the same chapter, which made me have to think twice about where I was in the actual story. The big fight scenes were also intense and interesting. I'm still a bit weirded out by the one from the lab in The Hill. (Read it and you'll know why) I've already discussed this book with my friends and I'm sure I'd have been the one out of us all that would've become an anomaly. So if you're looking for a new read involving a new look at humanity and how people deal with change and band together in crisis with superpowers, this story will be a good read for you.

There’s freedom in remembering.
My past is a double-edged sword.
Damned if I do remember, damned if I don’t.
Remembering beyond the horrors I already have will change me. Change us.
But, what if I’m living a lie? What if everything I thought was wrong, what if who I thought I was is wrong?
If not her, then…
Who am I?
Eddie says it doesn’t matter, but deep down I’m terrified it does.
I’m trapped. Held prisoner by a past I can’t remember and a future that might not belong to me.
There’s a light though, not at the end of the tunnel… But wavering in the distance, calling to me from Rumor Island.
That light, it scares me far more than darkness. Am I brave enough to confront it?
So many questions, so few answers.
I don’t have a choice; the truth always finds a way to the surface. Finally learning who I really am will be a permanent life sentence:
Total punishment or absolute amnesty.
