My Rating: 4/5
Marion, Virginia seemed like a nice place to live a normal life, but she is not a normal girl. Laney has special abilities that keep her looking over her shoulder as she makes her escape from the men who had kidnapped her.
A young doctor's interest is piqued when he witnesses her mysteriously curing a young child's illness. He befriends her due to his growing fascination with uncovering the true nature of her abilities, but not without harboring secrets of his own.
Laney's budding relationship with a local boy puts both of them in danger when the men she was hiding from find her. All of their lives will change forever as ancient secrets become unearthed.
'Human Blend' was so much more than I anticipated it to be. I loved the Characters (for the most part) and the storyline was consistent, engaging, and it made sense. As with all books and characters, there will probably be something you like and something you don't like. The only problem I had with any character in this book was Laney. She can be a bit much sometimes haha. But she is still a GREAT character.
'Human Blend' is the story of Laney who runs away from these terrible people and attempts to live in secret in Marion, Virginia. The people she is running from are the worst sort of people. Anyways, I don't want to say much about them. So, Laney has these abilities that we learn about throughout the book. The first thing we learn is that she can see numbers and she can heal people. Which is really why these people want her in the first place.
Overall, 'Human Blend' is an awesome book. I was hooked on it and actually read it all within a couple days which is something I haven't done since the summer! I can't wait to start book #2, 'Earth Blend' and see where Laney's story goes. I'm actually planning on starting it today! So, if you haven't checked out 'Human Blend' by Lori Pescatore (which is book one in a trilogy) you definitely should, you won't be disappointed!
