New Release “Freak of Nature” By: Julia Crane
Author Julia Crane’s new book “Freak of Nature” is original, action-packed, suspenseful, and just beautiful. “Freak of Nature” follows a half-machine half-robot, Kaitlyn, who is being made into a sort of “super solider” to be sold off to the government. The people that made her (the IFICS) are unaware however, that she has kept human emotions even after all of the “upgrades” that were done to her.
Kaitlyn got into a tragic accident (which the details of are kept in the dark for most of the book) and had her life taken from her on the brink of death. Kaitlyn checked the “donate your body to science” option before she passed away, but she had no idea how far these scientists would go. Among the scientists there is a young boy genius named Lucas who Kaitlyn cannot stop having feelings for (even though they told her she can no longer feel). Lucas became Kaitlin’s hope, her alibi, and eventually he becomes so much more than that.
“Freak of Nature” is a refreshing read, because it doesn’t truly fit the mold of a particular genre. It has romance, action, science, and suspense. Julia Crane’s writing has matured so much and it is a truly shown in her new book. Kaitlyn is so relatable even though she is half-robot, the love story aspect isn’t over the top or pushy, and Kaitlin’s strength is touching. I could go on forever about everything I loved about this book, but I think the readers just have to see for themselves. I am proud to say that I have jumped on Julia Crane’s ‘freak’ train, and I don’t think I ever want to get off.
