Donate Body to Science. Check.

When seventeen-year-old Kaitlyn checked the box, she never suspected she’d have her life–and her body–stolen from her. She awakens one day in a secret laboratory to discover that her body is now half-robot and is forced to hide her own secret: that she still has human emotions and a human mind. If the scientists who made her find out, they’ll erase what remains of who she was.

Kaitlyn finds an unlikely ally in Lucas, a handsome, brilliant scientist who can’t get over the guilt he feels knowing she was once a vibrant, beautiful young woman. He never expected a science project to affect him the way she does. As he tries to help her rediscover her past, he finds himself falling for the brave girl struggling to find her place and acceptance between the human and computer worlds.

*For mature teens due to some sexual content.

5.0 von 5 Sternen überraschend gut 18. Januar 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Ein hochinteressantes Thema. Was macht uns Menschen oder unser Leben aus?
Kate hatte einen schweren Unfall und da sie ihren Körper im Falles eines solchen zu wissenschaftlichen Zwecken zur Verfügung gestellt hat, landet sie in einem Forschungsprogramm zur Entwicklung von Soldaten Cyborgs. Alles menschliche soll ihr genommen werden, Gefühle, Erinnerung, Schmerzen... das ist an sich furchtbar. Es gelingt auch nicht. Kate hat nach wie vor Gefühle...Auf der anderen Seite wäre sie ohne dieses Forschungsprogramm nicht mehr lebensfähig gewesen.
Gut, dass ed Menschen gibt, die zu ihren Verbündeten werden.
Das Buch ist auch realistisch, obwohl vieles natürlich wissenschaftlich nicht möglich ist.
Es gibt überraschende Wendungen und man fühlt mit der Protagonistin mit. Ich wünschte mir manchmal, sie hätte sich am Ende anders entschieden, aber so wird es echt spannend, wie es wohl weitergeht. ..

5.0 von 5 Sternen Get your Freak on!!! 11. Januar 2013
Von Krystal Moore - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
Freak of Nature will grab your attention from the first few words on the page!!! I was immediately sucked into the witty and charming internal banter going on between the main characters Kaitlyn and Lucas...the story line flows smoothly throughout...however I found myself slightly annoyed towards the end..only because I could tell things were starting to wind down and I wanted more!!! :) Well played Ms. Crane, well played!!..Freak of Nature is definitely just the beginning and I can't wait to see how and where the action will take us! A mesmerizing mix of sci-fi romance against all odds, with a side of ass-kickin for good measure!!

4.0 von 5 Sternen A great introductory book 2. März 2013
Von Yvonne @ The Shadow Realm - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I'm going to start off by saying that I started this book with a bit of trepidation. You see I had had recently read another book by Crane, Eternal Youth and I have to say I didn't love it. I was left disappointed when I finished the book and so I was a bit worried that this book would be the same. But I am glad to say that is not the case. I loved this book! It was everything I was hoping it would be.

Freak of Nature tells the story of Kaitlyn, a young girl who was moment ago on deaths door, only to find that she is now a cyborg. She was made to be the ultimate soldier, with no emotions or family ties. She is meant to be cold and heartless. But somehow, somewhere, something went wrong. They made a fatal error - Kaitlyn can feel. She does have emotions. But no one must ever know. For if they did, they would take those emotions away from, or worse, shut her down. So she plays the good little robot. But its not so easy when she's around Lucas. He makes her feel things that she can't explain. Things she shouldn't feel. And even though Lucas is one of the scientists that have made her this way, he can't stop the feelings that he has this amazing creature. Can they ever find a way to be together? Or will Kaitlyn be for ever more just a lonely girl trapped in a robots body.

The story found in this book is something I've never read about before. So immediately I was so intrigued by how the story would play out. It switches POV between Kaitlyn and Lucas which I really liked. I loved getting Lucas' side of things. I always say that there are two sides to every story. I loved both characters. You really feel for both of them, especially Kaitlyn. You are just so sad for her and keep hoping that the scientists won't find out about her feelings and shut her down. Lucas I liked because he felt so believable. You understand why he did some of the things he did. I also liked that he was kind of shy and awkward. It just made him even cuter.
The story itself isn't that action-packed or suspenseful. It focus more building up the back-story and the love aspect. But this is the first book in a series so hopefully the next book will be more action-packed and we'll get to see more of Kaitlyn in action with all her enhanced traits.

This was a quick and very enjoyable read and a great introductory book. I am really looking forward to the next installment. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a unique read with a sweet romance.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Freak of Nature 1. Februar 2014
Von Sheri - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
The first thing I have to mention about Freak of Nature is the cover. It is eye catching and gorgeous. I'm not ashamed to admit I am drawn to books by their covers. If the cover is crappy, I'm less likely to pick up the book and read it. Additionally, I love a good sci-fi, and once the book caught my eye, the premise of a cyborg was enough to entice me to read this book.

Admittedly, this had a bit of a Cinder feel to it. Not in that it copied Cinder or even really shadowed the storyline in any way other than the cyborg aspect, but for whatever reason Kaitlyn reminded me of Cinder. I would have loved, thought, to get a little bit more from each of the characters in terms of thoughts and feelings. It was drummed into our heads over and over that Kaitlyn was supposed to be an unfeeling robot, yet she was not, but I felt that we did not get to see as much emotion from her as we should have. Lucas, too, felt flat. Even though we got his point of view in addition to Kaitlyn's, we did not really learn anything new from his additions to the story. They could have been left out completely and the story would have been the same. I would have loved to have his character more rounded out and real.

The writing itself was quite simplistic. It would have been great if this had been a children's or middle-grade book. However, as it was the writing style and subject matter didn't match. More specifically, the way the writing style portrayed things to be and Kaitlyn's thoughts, especially about Lucas, clashed. Additionally, there were just a lot little things that I questioned throughout the story that made it fall apart for me. Nothing will be specifically mentioned here because of potential spoilers, but they had to do with the relationships in the story, timeline, etc.

Overall, I liked the story, but wasn't great. I think with some tweaks and upgrades (pun intended) it could be a lot better. The story was interesting and entertaining in the aspect that it made me curious as to how things were going to end. Potential is the word that comes to mind. I think this book has the potential to be really good, and I wish the author the best of luck with it.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Oh, the humanity... 4. Juni 2014
Von Arli - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
I wanted to like this book. I really did. I tried to like this book.
I could get behind the ideas, the story, the characters...
But why, for the love of all, did the author not turn on Spellcheck?
Why was no editor involved? You can get good cover art, but no editor? Not even a proof reader?

Now, in all fairness, I am an English teacher. So I usually catch comma errors that may otherwise go unnoticed. I understand that I am more sensitive about these matters than your average reader.
But there are basic grammatical structures ignored here that I catch in fifth grade papers. Those I do not pay for.
Capitalization errors. Verb tenses ignored. Improper or confusing pronoun use. Spelling errors, poor syntax, spacing mistakes, use of the wrong homonym in context ... shall I continue? There were sentences that I literally could not comprehend due to the author's failure to proofread.

I wanted to like this book. Truly, I did. But I could not see part the blatant and glaring lack of respect for the English language.

Should the author wish to edit this draft (I intentionally call it a draft, since that is where the author stopped in the writing process), I would be beyond thrilled to give it another go.
Until such a time, it is my recommendation that you not spend your money or time on it.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Robot/Human Romance 10. November 2013
Von Genie - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
Actual rating 3.5

I received an ARC copy from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

When Kaitlyn died she was brought back to life as a robot. Even with all her new computer programming and features though, she still does have some fleeting memories of her past life and is drawn towards towards Lucas, the attractive scientist at IFICS institute who is in charge of making sure she runs smoothly. With abilities that no human could ever possess and feelings that she never expected, Kaitlyn must come to terms with her dehumanisation and decide whether it is really what she wants.

"How could you possibly think I'm beautiful? I'm repulsive - a freak of nature."

Recently I have been reading a lot of books with this theme of humans/robots and their internal conflict on how human they really are and can relate to other people etc. Freak of Nature put a romantic twist on this, which although it has been done before was still executed quite well. I really liked how Kaitlyn came out of her shell as the story progressed, and she tried to find out where her place really should be in the world. Her friendship with Quell was a nice touch, as it brought out the more 'human' aspects of her character. That's not to say that she couldn't turn into action-girl when she needed to and kick some ass, which she did. It was nice to see her using her 'powers' for good, and even the owner of the institute wasn't so bad either, unlike what I would have expected. I also liked reading Lucas' POV at some parts, as his side of the story was also interesting to investigate. A little more depth into some of the secondary characters would have given this book a bit more of a boost and added some further development to the plot.

The only thing that bothered me a bit (and it really isn't THAT much of a big deal), was how easy some things came to be in the end - I know there had to be some sort of resolution, but perhaps things were solved in a manner which could have had a bit more action involved. Either way, it was hard to find any real antagonists in this book, apart from a few strangers scattered throughout. I suppose everyone's take on this could be different, as the 'good' and 'bad' guys aren't always clear cut.


In conclusion, if you're looking for a robot/human romance and a little more insight into what it would be like for a robot to exist with real feelings, then you'll probably enjoy Freak of Nature. Even though this has been done before, it's still interesting to see the different versions of these types of stories
