Kurzbeschreibung

Steven Thorn has no trouble settling in at university. He is confident, hardworking and intelligent. When Caitlin Chance catches him off guard he is bemused by the instant attraction, and the more he gets to know, the more he likes.

Yet, Steven has a secret past that is destined to reveal itself, and he is soon to become a stranger to everyone. The wheels are set in motion for his radical upheaval. But first love is a powerful thing, and the connection forged between Caitlin and Steven is not easily broken.

The impossible is only the beginning...

Vanessa Wester's debut novel takes you from the University of Southampton to the depths of the Amazon. 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.

*****

"A very original paranormal novel with great romance and a unique story-line..."
Christopher Fischer, TOP 500 REVIEWER

"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, romance with an unsettling undercurrent of tension. I cannot wait to read the rest of the trilogy!"
A Dawes

"I was not sure that this book was going to be my thing, but I couldn't put it down. I loved the characterisation and Vanessa's style of writing - these are 'unbelievable' characters made completely believable!"
Charlotte

"This is a captivating work that crackles and pops off the page with sparkling originality, wit, and insight into the larger themes of love and the human condition. Do yourself a favor and read it.
D. Byron

"Although the author is inspired by novels in the same genre there is nothing wrong in that - most of us take inspiration from one source or another. Vanessa Wester has clearly taken inspiration from her own life and from her imagination. She has clearly spent time creating the imaginary citadel and understands its geography and customs which are made clear to the reader. The story-line flows smoothly... I always think there must be something to recommend a book which you would not normally select..."
Christine Thompson, Gibraltar Chronicle

5.0 von 5 Sternen Captivation at Every Twist and Turn! Next Bestseller! 23. Juli 2012
Von MrsMud - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
As an 8th grade English teacher, reading is my passion. In order to entice my middle school kids to read, I must make sure that what I present to them is something that will not only catch their attention, but keep it through to the end. Popular series such as Percy Jackson, The Hunger Games, and the Divergent Trilogy are series that I've read and presented to my students, and received an overwhelming response with kids fighting for books to read them. In saying that, I am constantly looking for books that are up to my standards to "infect" my students with that bug to read. I can say, after reading Hybrid, that this is my next book craze that will be taking over my class. Since I live in the USA, the terms and spellings of Great Britain threw me at first, but was great to be exposed to a different way of reading. Will be great discussions in class!

Hybrid begins in the setting of England, with student Caitlin joining the University, and meeting new people. It threw me, at first, because the story does change to the different characters points of view, but you catch on quick after that. At school, Caitlin meets Steven and all that comes with him; many things that even HE didn't realize came with him. You get caught up in young blossoming love, that soon become overshadowed by darknesses hidden by the past. When dark family secrets make themselves known, the story twists into one of survival and the costs of living. Will the overwhelming love endure all costs? Is survival worth losing yourself? Is there anyway out?

The Hybrid series is 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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent first book, you'll be hooked 20. Mai 2013
Von Gary Henson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
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!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great read 28. Mai 2013
Von C. Plunkett - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Instantly engaging book that has a twist on the usual vampire stories. The main characters Steven and Caitlin are well matched and I particularly enjoyed the beginning of the story that is set at university and shows how their relationship develops before things start to get confusing for Steven. I don't want to spoil the story for you but would say if you enjoy reading teen/young adult fiction with a strong storyline and great characters then this is the book for you.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Fresh and engaging! 7. März 2013
Von Buckethead - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Initially I was attracted to 'Hybrid' after reading a great, shorter piece by the same author--so I decided to give this a go. Needless to say, I wasn't disappointed.

The plot of this book revolves around a 19 year old University student (Steven) who embarks on the typical adjustment to university life (takes classes, occasionally oversleeps, makes friends, meets a girl, etc.). But Steven is going through a very atypical transition as well (at first unknowingly), and this other transition (along with the intersections between the normal and abnormal) is truly the heart of the story.

I liked this book because the plot was engaging and it kept me reading. (In truth, I had a hard time putting it down because I was so invested in the characters and the outcome.) Beyond that, Wester has taken an interesting and pleasantly surprising angle on what would otherwise be a tired plot device (think vampires, though strictly speaking it's a bit more than that). And before you count this book out due to the genre, I will note that the plot is far more engaging than some other recent works in the same vein (pun certainly intended), and in my view better written.

It's not a perfect novel to be sure. At times Wester's prose and dialogue come across a bit clunky (and with dialogue specifically: at times it was overly formal). The book could also use another round of editing to eliminate the remaining typographical and grammatical problems. But that said, none of these minor drawbacks stopped me from reading or really pulled me far enough out of the story to be bothered--and the quality of the writing, overall, more than made up for them.

In summary, this was a pleasant read and I'm hooked. I definitely recommend it and will, without a doubt, be reading the next book in the series.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Unusual and imaginagtive 24. März 2014
Von Rivergirl - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
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!
