Today I am very excited to be closing the blog tour for Deryn Pittar’s Future Movers – The Series collection of books.
About the book
For three generations the genetically altered Corban family have hid their talents from the Defence Department to avoid conscription.
Genetically altered at conception, William and Belinda begin this saga and pass their genetic cocktail to their children. The mixture of talents each character develops can at times be a blessing and, at other times a curse, preventing them from giving into their heart’s desires. Intelligent, multi-talented, yet pretending to be boringly normal these characters continue to live their lives under the radar.
Follow the family’s trials, loves, and achievements in this thrilling series of paranormal romances.
I have only read book one of this amazing series so far but I am half way book two so will review that as well once I have finished it.
This book is very different from the other books I have read recently, but similar to books I used to read, as it is part sci-fi and part romance.
The Sci-Fi part of the book involves genetic mutations in people’s DNA giving them special powers, which they have to keep secret unless they want to government to take them away and use them in Defense of the country. The romance part of the book involves our two main characters, William and Belinda as they meet and slowly fall in love, although this is unwise as they are both from the ‘nursery’ which is an adoption centre for children of mutants.
The nursery in question investigates and monitors these children to ensure they don’t have any talents and if they do then they are taken away and never seen again. Once the ‘narms’ reach the age of 7 they are no longer considered dangerous so are available for adoption. Both Wills and Belinda are classed as norms so have been adopted by different families, although they both do have talents, which they had managed to hide for all this time.
The story follows them both as they slowly decide whether to be seen together and date, or do the safe thing and leave each other well alone.
This is a brilliant and engaging book as we learn about them both and what their talents can allow them to do. It is a rather short story but contains so much in it that you don’t really notice, and ends on a cliff-hanger so I can’t wait for the next one in the series.
