Drink the water, they said, it’s safe, they said, but they lied and the TS901 in the world’s water supply created anomalies in humanity, people with something “more,” something not natural and each anomaly was different. Now these mutated humans were separated, contained and must hide their gifts, if possible. Still love grew for many, like Evan and Thia, a girl struggling with her emerging powers, even as a reversal for their anomalies were being researched. Again, the government lied

Shut the Front Door, this is a amazing start to a series! I was held captive from the first page in this world! I just want the next book, like right now! For those who like the X-Men and Avengers!

The author builds a world with those exposed from TS901 which was added to the water for the good of the people and mutated many. Those mutations changed people in very many ways both physical and thru the mind and other ways. But there are those afraid and those who want to exploit those mutations and

I am obsessed with this book!
In a world where the people have been wronged by their government in unimaginable ways and being treated horribly, they are at an all time low, and Thia is the just the hope the people need.
When she hears that her ex, and the love of her life, is in trouble, she will stop at nothing to help him, and hopefully save her people at the same time.
I truly can't do this book justice with my lame attempt at a description. The characters are amazing, quirky and definitely p

A very exciting sci-fi, action, dystopian story! Really great for fans of superheroes and end of the world type novels. I was gripped from the beginning and honestly couldn't put this book down or stop thinking about it until I was done. These authors work great together and I can't wait for more books in this series to pop up!

I received an arc of this book and am voluntarily reviewing.

TS901 was a chemical introduced to the water supply that was supposed to help humanity and it did for most of the population. There were a select few humans that were negatively impacted. These humans had DNA that when combined with the TS901 chemical turned them into mutants, now known as a “Maly.” Whereas an ordinary person was referred to as a “Nary.”

Cool mutants with many different super powers. Some examples would be having a sonic voice, being able to control electricity, mind control, and

Wow. Stacey Rourke & Tish Thawer have out done themselves in their first collaborative work. The story flows seamlessly between the two writers. Even though it is a departure from their normal genres, they definitely nailed it. TS901 Anomaly blends in several genres; dystopian, scifi, paranormal, and a shot of romance. You can clearly see elements of both authors too. Gigi is witty, snarky and brilliant in true Rourke fashion. Thia is strong willed female MC that I see a lot in Thawer's books. A ...more

This was such an incredible story. Heartbreak, hurt, distrust, finding oneself, the start of an uprising . OH so good. Genetic anomalies locked away in camps to keep the humans “safe”. Of course that never goes well... the imagery was amazing and the unique traits that the Maly’s posses was so intriguing. I cannot wait to read more in this series! What’s going to happen!?!

Add TS901: Anomaly to your TBR list STAT!!! It's fantastic! You won't be disappointed, in fact, you'll be left wanting more. The characters, the prose, the world building, will all have you hooked from the moment you start reading. I cannot wait for the rest of this series! Bravo to Stacey Rourke and Tish Thawer for this great story!

Slow but good

For me it was a slow but good read. By slow I mean it started out slow taking me a bit to get into. Once into it it pick up. And by the end Stacey and Tish had me wanting more. All and all I'm glad I stuck with it. Hopefully there will be a second book.

Thia is part of an unfortunate group of people infected by the water distributed TS901. The concoction, which was intended to help, hurt many people, turning them into anomalies (Malys), who are at odds with the "normal" people, the Narys. The abnormalities suffered range from physical deformities to "powers" like mind control, sonic voice, and rapid healing. Because of their differences, the Malyies are segregated into a dilapidated old subway station, always one misstep away from being labeled ...more

I received an ARC to give an honest review.

So I have read plenty of books by Stacey Rourke but Tish Thawer is a new author for me. So when I saw that Stacey and Tish were going to be co-authoring on a book I knew I had to see what it was about and if it was going to be any good. Now I just hoped that Stacey's sense of humor would find its way into the book because let's face it. With the wittiness that she gives her characters in her other books I can't find myself not reading a character who co

This Dystopian/SciFi novel is where an experiment goes wrong, and the victims are now anomalies aka Malies. They are kept in seclusion under the strict supervision of the "normal" humans, the Naries. The Malies have mutated, demonstrating various inhuman powers and are outcasts to be treated like savages! The ones in power have ulterior motives. They lie and deceive for their own gain.

Thia is one of the mutants who have settled underground in poor conditions. She hides her powers and deals with

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.

I received a free ARC of this book with the option of leaving an honest review.

I loved this book! Rourke and Thawer came together and created a story with an amazing premise, wonderful setting, compelling dialogue, and very cool characters. To me, the plot had some similarities to the X-Men movies and comics; however, the similarities seemed only "skin deep" as the characters and setting are quite unique. I also liked how Rourke and Thawer managed to provide a backstory for the characters withou

I was very excited to be given the opportunity to read an ARC of TS901. I was already a huge fan of Stacey Rourke and loved the idea of getting to know Tish Thawer's writing. Although TS901 was not my typical go-to genre, the idea of the story intrigued me.
I was instantly transported to their world through the vividly written words. I instantly liked Thia and her rapport with the Malys and the guards. She was tough, smart, and no-nonsense.

This book will transport you into a world where monsters aren't the ones with extra limbs but the ones who look like everyone else and the only way to survive is to find yourself and shed your mask.

The one word that comes to my mind over and over again is "Wow". I've overused that word in my head while reading this book. It was truly phenomenal. The writing was flawless, the book kept me on the edge of my seat and my heart thumping out of my chest. I really felt like I was there, beside the cha

TS901 is a genre I do not typically read, but I absolutely love Stacey Rourke's other books, so took a chance on this one (99 cents is a steal). I am not disappointed one bit!! The flow of the book is perfect from beginning to end, and I finished this in one sitting, which almost never happens for me.

A few others have compared TS901 to X-Men. I would say, if you like the characters in X-Men, you would probably enjoy this book. The "monsters" created by the Government's TS901 are a lot like the o

TS901: Anomaly is a gritty dystopian novel by Stacey Rourke and Tish Thawer. I've loved books by Stacey Rourke and when I read the blurb for this book, I knew I just HAD to read this one too. I thought the book would be a bit chaotic because two different authors were writing it, but when I read this book, I have to say that the writing style blended together beautifully.

WOW. What an amazing story so full of action, suspense, and sass built into one completely unforgettable story.

This dynamic duo has twisted together an incredible, never before written, story. While each author can produce some fantastic stories by themselves, together they have created a masterpiece that adds a snarky, witty, and kick butt story that kept me turning each page and wondering just what would happen next.

What could POSSIBLY go wrong when the government decides “adding a few things for our own good” to our drinking water is a good idea?? We wonder that constantly, and these authors do a fabulous job at showing not only what exactly could go terribly wrong, but how much worse it can get when they don’t stop there.

What happens when some people are not affected by the additive in the water, and others are? Well…when those that are affected have some pretty incredible physical changes, almost turning

The government put chemicals in the world’s water supply to help people’s health improve but what it actually ended up doing is changing some of the people. The chemicals have changed them by giving them special abilities and powers. Thia Kelly is among many of the Anomalies who are now kept prisoners inside fences because of their anomalies.

The government has taken Thia’s boyfriend to do experiments on to develop his anomaly for their own purposes. Thia is determined to get her boyfriend, Evan

From the very beginning of this book, you are thrown into a heavily tense and brewing war between Naries(Ordinary) and Malies(Anomalies). Thia starts her days angry, in pain, and missing her boyfriend. A boyfriend that is considered dangerous and a threat by being Patient One. While vicious attacks are blamed on him, she knows the full story. That he was just a boy that wanted to make his father proud. Except, in doing so, he left her and their people and his image now puts everyone at risk. Sti ...more

Now, this is my kind of story. Kick-butt female lead, supporting characters that are actually good, and heart pounding, action from the beginning!

Anomaly was written by two authors, and I couldn’t tell. It was clear they were able to work well with each other, because this story was seamless and I enjoyed it immensely. The writing is fantastic. The action scenes make you feel like you’re watching a movie, and the dialogue is impressively realistic.

I loved the concept of the Mallies (Anomalies).

I have been a long time fan of Tish Thawer so when I saw she had a collaboration coming out with Stacey Rourke I was intrigued. Although Stacey Rourke is a new to me author I had heard many good things through the grape vine so she was definitely already on my radar, and this just slammed her right down in the middle.

To be honest if someone had simply handed me the book to read, I would have had no idea that this was actually written by 2 authors. There are no dodgy seams, no disjointed points o

TS901 was unlike anything I've read in a long time and I say that in the best way possible! It was a fast paced, nitty gritty, out of this world story that had me hooked from the very beginning! The best part is that it is a cowritten story and you can't even tell! Stacey Rourke and Tish Thawer mesh so well together making a perfect team for this story! I promise I couldn't begin to tell you, who wrote what parts!

Along with this uniquely gripping story, comes the life lessons of love in so many

TS901 was different compared to the other stories I have read by these authors. The storyline is set post apocalypse and the characters take a new stance compared to other books like it.

The characters are amazing and even while being completely worn out it took me a little bit to get the big picture and see what the story was telling. This gives way to a new version of apocalypse story telling with what could be a possible version.

Both authors did an amazing job, I couldn't tell who started of
