Sinossi

University should be about independence, new opportunities, friends and expanding the mind. For Steven Thorn, it's the start of a new life, just not the one he anticipated. As his resolve is put to the test, he ends up losing everything. For who could live a normal life as a HYBRID.

Steven Thorn has no trouble settling in at University. Having grown up at boarding school, he is used to living away from home. When it comes to making new friends, he's cautious. Usually, he receives too much unwanted attention. Caitlin Chance catches him off guard. She's the first girl he has ever felt an instant attraction towards and the more he gets to know, the more he likes.

However, the romance is cut short when Caitlin leaves University after a suspicious suicide. Now Steven is alone, Ingrid gets her chance and it doesn't take long for her to discover that Steven is a HYBRID.

The wheels are set in motion for his radical upheaval. 

Now they know he exists, they will come to get him... 

Vanessa Wester's debut novel takes you from the University of Southampton to the depths of the Amazon jungle. An imaginary citadel is waiting to be discovered full of interesting characters,traditions and cultures. There are so many twists and details you will not be able to put this book down.

REVIEWS

"...sure to keep the reader on edge throughout the chapters, and leaves you wanting more at the end. This, to me, is the mark of a true bestseller. It leaves me wanting more, and will leave any reader wanting her to hurry up and release the other books! Any fans of The Hunger Games and/or Twilight will instantly be captivated. I will state, I am NOT a Twilight/vampire fan AT ALL, but I was captivated by this book. You must read to know more! I recommend this book to anyone who wants to "get lost" in a new book, and for any English teacher looking to get their kids hooked on reading. I'm confident in recommending this, and look forward to many more works in this series and by this author."

"This is a very exciting read. Would appeal to the Twilight fan-base, but has definitely put it's own twist on the genre. A very well constructed piece, all the more impressive for being a debut novel."

"I loved this story! It was a fantastic start to a series which I hope to see more from soon, and I loved the characters! There was also a great twist in the tale, and it was original and well-thought out. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for something new in their paranormal romance/fantasy section, and I can't wait to see what this author comes up with in her next books!"

"I really enjoyed the characters, settings and narrative and couldn't put it down. So many little twists and details all the way through, super. I can't wait to read the next in the series and would love to see it as a film."
 
"When you first start getting into the story you automatically think Vampires, but as you discover more, Vampires is not the correct term for Steven's new family... It's well worth the read and as I got to the end I was frantically swiping my kindle screen looking for more as I wanted to know what happened next. I will definitely be reading the next book and would highly recommend it."
Orchard Book Club
 
"Not usually the kind of book I like to read,although I was a big fan of Anne Rice in my youth. The unexpected twist in the tale made for compulsive reading, literally forcing you to discover what happens next.This story had it all, brilliantly written, loads of interesting characters, mystery,and romance with an unsettling undercurrent of tension. I cannot wait to read the rest of the trilogy!"

5.0 su 5 stelle Excellent first book, you'll be hooked 20 maggio 2013
Di Gary Henson - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Vanessa Wester has a great first book in 'Hybrid'. If this is her first, we all have a lot to look forward to in the coming years as she brings out more of this series and hopefully other stories.

The opening is set at a University in England. Wester immeadiately drew me into the worlds of the two main characters, Steven and Caitlin, as well as some very well established secondary characters. I was invested in her creations right away.

Then Vanessa throws me a unique twist I was totally unprepared for, even though I had an inkling of what was eventually going to happen. It's not a simple 'young vampires in love' story by any means. There is a lot more to the core story and how it drives her characters forward. I was actually disappointed when it ended; I wanted more. And from the epiloge, I believe the next book will be even better!

As a further note, I read both 'Hunger Games' and 'Twilight' at the insistence of my family (all female). 'Hybrid' was much more engaging and believable than either of those books. I found 'Twilight' very shallow and simple. 'Humger Games' is better but still just 'Gladiators' for kids. 'Hybrid' is a step above both these books and I would not be surprised to see it on film some time soon.

'Hybrid' is an engaging, fun, twisting, page turner that bodes well for Ms. Wester's writing career. I'm ready to grab books two!

4.0 su 5 stelle Unusual and imaginagtive 24 marzo 2014
Di Bargee - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Like some of the other reviewers here, I read this knowing that I wouldn't normally buy this genre of book, and I was a bit sceptical as to whether I would like it. But, I was surprised to find I enjoyed it very much. It is aimed at younger readers, but is quite mature enough for older folk like me. The storyline is very unusual, but well thought through and I liked the humanity shown throughout despite the basic premise that this strange race of beings needs human blood to survive. It's a compelling story with characters the reader can empathise with and care about. It's also gripping and imaginative, and cleverly, the ending leaves you wanting to know what happens next. Well done Vanessa Wester! I have a feeling I'm going to be reading the next in the series one of these days!

4.0 su 5 stelle Don't use the "V" word 5 ottobre 2014
Di Romance Reader - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
3.5 stars, and that mostly because this is a YA/NA book (which isn't normally my target reading).

A group of kids are starting their first year at university, trying to fit in, adjusting to being away from home, reinventing themselves into who they will become. For some, it is easier than for others. Caitlin shares a hall with three other girls, one of which is horribly homesick and struggling to fit in. Lonely, homesick girls make the easiest targets, but before she has a chance to go home, she dies of an apparent suicide.

Steven is handsome and confident, and he and Caitlin share an instant bond. When Caitlin returns home to sort out her hall-mate's death, another woman targets Steven, leaving him confused and with an odd bruise on his neck.

Caitlin returns to university to pick up where she left off with Steven and the two rapidly become a couple, until one night when she is kidnapped to lure Steven out - and then he is kidnapped and all memory of him and his existence is expunged.

What is Steven? And what are all the people claiming to be a superior race who are secreted away inside a volcano deep in the Amazonian jungle?

The story was interesting. The author creates a hidden society, a modern-day Utopia, and yet humanity almost always chooses freedom over confined quarters, no matter how perfect the living conditions. I think the author has done an excellent job showing the differing personalities and societal cliques. She's done a nice job of ending the first book in the trilogy, teasing you into the next book without leaving you wanting for answers to the theme in the first book. Worth the read.

5.0 su 5 stelle The Next Evolution of Humans 12 maggio 2014
Di My Book Fairy - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This is a story that could be considered a paranormal romance, but it’s so much more than that. The story starts out with a young woman, Caitlin, headed to college and introduces you to her and her four “roommates”, getting right into the feel of starting out in a new place in college and the different types of people you will meet. I immediately liked Caitlin and could understand her situation and the feelings she had of being in a new place, both excitement and intimidation. A new place, new people and an unsure environment and the last thing she’s worried about is a boyfriend or falling in love, even though it seems that people are looking all around and yet she bumps into Steven, a “tall, dark, handsome and athletic” guy you expect to be another womanizer and yet he’s not. Steven is a complex character and he’s sincerely intrigued by Caitlin. You spend the first half or so of the story learning about Caitlin and Steven and watching their relationship develop. Then there is an unexpected turn of events, which sets the baseline for the remainder of the story. You see Steven taken away from everyone he knows and everyone he loves, no one knows who he is, or that he exists. You come to learn about the next evolution in humankind and their trials and tribulations, their wants and needs and the story leaves you wanting for more. All of the main and supporting characters are well built with complex personalities which brings the story to life. You can feel the pain they feel and understand their feelings from excitement, fear, love and lust to sorrow and uncertainty about the future. I couldn't put this book down and read from the start to about 63% in before I stopped and by the time I was about 80% done I knew I’d be buying the remaining two in the trilogy.

I gave this book a rating of 5 out of 5 stars because aside from a single sentence which didn't seem grammatically correct, the story was nearly flawless. The characters and story had me enchanted from day one and the plot unfolded at just the right pace. This isn't your typical paranormal or vampire story, but it will keep you on your toes and isn't full of “fluff”, but has a lot of deeper issues going on in the sidelines along with the main plot. When I found out this was the authors debut novel I couldn't believe it. I can’t wait to see what else Vanessa writes in the remainder of this trilogy and beyond. I've already borrowed the trilogy on the Kindle so I can decide if I want to buy them all in the Kindle edition or in a physical book.

4.0 su 5 stelle A slightly different twist on vampires/paranormal 2 maggio 2015
Di Debbie - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Another slightly different slant on the vampire/paranormal genre
Steven is not entirely normal - at least not a normal human. And he's about to reach maturity and become something more. Or maybe not. And of course, he doesn't know.
He falls for Caitlyn shortly before his "relatives' discover his existence and whisk him away before the "change" occurs in order to prevent him from running rampant through the human population. But Steven isn't exactly like his relatives either plus he's not thrilled with the idea of hiding for the rest of this life with the rest of the his kind who has sworn to stay away from humans.
The book has a good base story and background with justification for who and what these people are and to explain why Steven exists at all. The book sets the stage for the follow on stories but at least it wraps up the first "chapter" in Steven's life satisfactorily.
