Even with the ability to Stop Time, you still can Run Out of it.

Kathryn should be institutionalized or incarcerated.

That’s what happens to deviants - people born with unusual abilities. And if the government knew she can teleport and stop time, she can say good bye to her freedom. Not that her life is all that great anyway. Her inability to control her "gifts" forces her t

The Smutty X-Men

(Full disclosure: I received a free electronic copy of this book for review through Library Thing's Member Giveaways program. Also, trigger warning for discussion of rape.)

Kathryn is a deviant. Along with one half of one percent of the human population, Kathryn shares genetic anomalies with the mentally ill; but instead of causing anxiety or depression, these deviations give her special gifts. Kathryn has the ability to teleport and freeze time, while other deviants can communica

The Deviant Underground, (Time Bandit series; book 1), Elisabeth Roseland
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews
I really enjoy paranormal romance and thought this sounded a real treat, something a bit different from the usual stories.
Well, it's true it was different, but it seemed an odd mix of YA style writing with some sex thrown in. I felt for Kathryn, she's kind of a loner and then Susan befriends her. Her boyfriend is a jerk and Susan encourgages her to drop him and date her friend Sam. Tha

This is a hard book for me to review. I really enjoyed that that cast is multicultural, and that the main character is Black. However, that fact was far from obvious until late in the book, although I had some idea based on thoughts/comments early on. That being said, the main character seemed to switch from educated academic to neighborhood girl in language and behavior rather suddenly and without warning. It felt like an inconsistent personality and so I never felt I really got her as the hero ...more

3.8 stars. I really liked the plot in this book. The imagination and creativity was great too. There characters were varied, as well as their 'talents'. I didn't really connect with them though, due to personal preference of some things. This was a really good book (minus a very few typos) and I would enjoy reading more in the series. The intrigue was done well, however, the characters did some things differently than I thought they should and didn't do some things I thought they should've and c ...more

Won this as a Goodreads Firstreads Giveaway. It sounded like a story I would really like. I did like it. I liked the main characters and the basic storyline. It was well written and the setting and characters were believeable. Unfortunately, it was strangely reminiscent of the X Men mutants. Anyway, it was a good read. It kept me turning the pages, but I am only mildly curious to see what will happen with Time Bandit, Charge, Susan and Jonathan. I guess if I saw future books of the series, I mig ...more

I did not really liked this book because the relationship between Kathryn, Susan and Charge has something deeply disturbed and disturbing, although the premises, very similar to the X-Men, were all there for the story to be intriguing enough.

Non mi é piaciuto molto questo libro perché il rapporto tra Kathryn, Susan e Charge ha qualcosa di profondamente disturbato e disturbante, inoltre anche se le premesse, per quanto molto simili agli X-Men, erano tutte lí affinché la storia fosse intrigante qu

Recommends it for: sci-fi buffs
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review rom LibraryThing Early Reviewers. It was an interesting read. Sci-Fi theme with mystery and intrigue with some steamy romance tossed in. Its got a good pace, the story doesn't drag along. The language is natural and the characters are strong and independent individuals. There is also a good lead up to the next sequel which I would probably read.

DNF at 16%

This started out really promising for me, but then it just lost my interest a bit. The first 15% were basically Kathryn dating someone and I didn't feel the connection between them, particularly when he then did something questionable. It's a shame because the world around Kathryn did seem interesting.

I received this ebook from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
It was well written but I didn't like it. The interactions between characters were creepy and disturbing.
