Tour Stop with Freak of Nature by Julia Crane


Freak of
         Nature
By: Julia Crane



Review by



I was given a copy of Freak of Nature for my honest review. The moment I was introduced to Kate, who donated her body to science, not realizing they were to make her into a cyborg… I felt for Kate, the feeling of being a total freak of nature .Being trapped in a machine and the Irony in her own head. As I read more to realize she could think and feel on her own. Julie Crane you totally opened my eyes to the future of cyborgs. Super human race "whoa" scary stuff, makes me want to rethink and "unchecked" the donate organs on my I.D card. I loved the connection between Kate and Lucas. Who knew a romantic relationship with a robot sounded so tempting, if it’s wrong I don't want to be right. .There is some sexual content in this book. I freaking loved the freak of Nature .It met my expectations and more. If anything it left me wanting me more .As I yelled at the end No "to be continued”. Thank you Julia Crane for mentioning Aspergers, from a mother who knows and understands the condition all to well . You have let the readers understand a piece of the puzzle.



Synopsis

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.


Julia Crane Bio

Julia Crane is the author of the Coexist: Keegan’s Chronicles. She has a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice. Julia has believed in magical creatures since the day her grandmother first told her an Irish tale. Growing up her mother greatly encouraged reading and using your imagination. Although she’s spent most of her life on the US east coast, she currently lives in Dubai with her husband and three children.



What inspired you to write your first book?

Free time. When we moved to Dubai, I went from working full time owning a gym to twiddling my thumbs. I thought I should try to write that novel I always wanted to. Three months later I finished Coexist.

Where do you get your information or ideas for your books?

I do some research, but mainly I just go where my mind takes me. Ideas come out of nowhere it seems. Like for Freak of Nature, I saw my daughter making a cyborg image on photoshop and I though I’ve got to write a book about a cyborg.



What were the challenges (research, literary, psychological, and logistical) in bringing your characters to life?

I can’t think that deeply into writing if I did it would freeze me up. I’ve gotten to know a lot of different personalities over my lifetime and I draw from that. I’ve also been lucky enough to travel extensively so I think that helps.

What are you working on now?

I’m really excited, because I just started Rourk. A continuation of Keegan’s Chronicles. Rourk will be deeper and darker.

Tell me the first word that comes to mind when you think of the following;

        Angel: Guardian
        Romance: Complicated
        Love: Life
        Vampire: Twilight
        Swoon: Thor
        Reading: Escape
        Chocolate: Yum
        Coffee: Lifeline
        Dress: Casual
