Gather the Children follows two mutants living in the state of Texas. Their parents are from different humanoid species, but both have biological fathers from the planet Justine. One has a mother from the planet Thalia and the other from Earth. The youngest is filled with rage against the world, knowing he is a freak with two hearts and has the ability to enter another’s mind when he’s truly desperate. He has no one to teach him how to control his ability or stop his mad rages, until he meets MacDonald. The other mutant intends to return to his planet and reclaim his land. They must learn to navigate a confiscated spaceship between the stars, but first they need to trust each other and stay alive in a hostile, dangerous land torn by a civil war. Two strong-minded Earth females will alter both of their plans.

Very Pleasantly Surprised by A. Blackburn
I read this book on recommendation from a friend. Let me start by saying I typically don't read "sci-fi" type books and was skeptical. However, within minutes I was intrigued enough to continue on. The characters were very well developed and easy to relate to. I felt like I was right there with them. I began to really enjoy the author's descriptive and thorough writing style. The different dialects made it a very interesting and realistic read. I love the mix of old west and sci fi and what can I say?....I really really enjoyed it! I can't say I've read anything else quite like it. I just kept turning pages because I truly wanted to know what was going to happen next and how it was going to end. If you are looking for something unique that is interesting and easy and fun to read, give this a try. I look forward to future writings from this author.
