America 2060. Three Lovers. Two Species. One Way to Survive.

Set in Alaska in 2060, when April enters her sophomore year at University, she thought Robert might be the love of her life; but as she discovers, she is hiding something inside her, something the rest of the world believes to have died out. She struggles with who she was and who she is becoming as she learns of a family she never knew existed and of enemies she will have to outrun, outfight or outwit to survive. As April embraces her new identity, will she have to leave the life she loves behind?

With underlining themes of how prejudice breaks human con- nections and animal/wildlife conservation, this novel which has received rave reviews will leave the reader flipping through the pages of April’s story.

"WOW, crazy good plot!" -Book Crazy

"This is a fast-moving story, never a dull moment. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it.” -Imogen Rose (Author of Portal Chronicles)

"This story starts out pretty much along the same line that many of the young adult books today do…Usually it’s a vampire or a shifter. Well, it is a shifter ---of a different kind. Blackwelder manages to take an oft used hook and weaves her own awesome story that was well worth your time……This book kept me flipping the pages till I got to the amazing end." -Lisa Richards

"The first thing I liked about this book was that it opened with a very detailed description of the world in which it will take place. While some would argue that these are things best left built into the body of the novel, it reminded me of the opening to Fellowship of the Ring." -Bernard @gGoodreads

"The Hunted of 2060 is much more than the common paranormal romance novels that are popular right now...there was more focus on deeper topics like prejudice and betrayal...It was actually refreshing." -Cassie @Goodreads

"April was one of the strongest herione's I have read. You could feel her struggle between to worlds. Not only being with being a hybrid. She also struggled with making the right choice in relationships. " -Cleverly @Goodreads

1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth it September 21, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wow. I was hoping, when I bought this book that it would be one of those secretly amazing books no one has discovered yet. Major disappointment. The writing feels like a story from a 7th grader. The characters are not believable at all and the choices they make have no reasoning behind them. The events progress weirdly through time, almost too quickly, and the sentence structure is poor. It is rare I don't finish a book, especially one with shape shifting, but I could not get into the book at all. Every mistake would jump out of me, jarring me out of the attempt at a story. This book is not worth your time, you won't be able to get past the horrible writing to read the not-that-interesting story.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Hunted of 2060 August 4, 2010
By MB13
Format:Kindle Edition
Upon reading the description of this book, I was very interested in reading it. It didn't sound like anything I've read before, which was a breath of fresh air.

The premise of the book is about an alien species coming to earth, and wishing to make a life for themselves alongside humans. Unsurprisingly, there are humans that are resistant to them, and cause the aliens to be hunted down. The aliens are shape shifters, able to mimic something they have previously touched, e.g. animals and humans. Because the aliens are being hunted, they try to save their species by mating with humans, and hybrids are born.

This book revolves around the hybrids, April in particular, and their fight for survival. An interesting concept, it caught my attention. I love how Ami brought the future to life, and how the hybrids could change shape. There were twists and turns that I couldn't always predict, which definitely make for an enjoyable read.

It took me a while to become fully engaged in the story. I ran across a number of grammar issues, which kept throwing me off. Also, there were times when I would become confused with what was going on or how something was being described. In addition, it took me a while to connect with the characters. I didn't engage with the main character as much as I kept hoping I would, but that may be due to the fact that she was young, and being thrust into a new and unexpected situation.

I see lots of potential with this book, and with the prequel and sequel that are scheduled to be released.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fast-Moving Enjoyable Read June 4, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Transport yourself fifty years into the future-to 2060. To a world with humans and a new species, a hybrid species, created by the interbreeding of humans and an alien species which arrived on Earth in 2020. The Rogue Militia, an organization set up to destroy them, exterminated the whole species. What remains in 2060, are the hybrid survivors, a species of shifters.

April is one such hybrid. Left at an early age with adoptive parents, her early normal life was spent surrounded by humans. By the time she reaches the age of nineteen, she notices changes within her. She also notices physical changes. She realizes that she is a shifter-she can transform into a wolf. She is introduced to her hybrid family. She also realizes that she is 'The Hunted'-hunted by the The Rogue Militia, who having eliminated the alien species, now focuses on exterminating the hybrids.

Ami Blackwelder takes us on a rip-roaring adventure in the future. I was immediately drawn in by April and this intriguing story. Her struggles to accept who she is, torn between her loyalties to her hybrid clan and to the humans in her life. This is a fast-moving story, never a dull moment. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it and can't wait to read more from this awesome author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Polished imagination August 2, 2010
"The Hunted of 2060" cuts instantly to the chase suiting well the teen-and-above audience that it is pitched at. Paced briskly from the outset, Ami Blackwelder creates a futuristic blend of sci-fi and teen-female-adventure. However, this novel has more about it than the recent blitz of teen vampire novels. You can see how Blackwelder has taken the time to project a fully plausible future based on the best and worst of current society that we can all relate to without it being in any way Dystopian.
Written in the first person from the perspective of April, an everyday student from 2060 whose life is spun completely around when she discovers that she is in fact a human /alien hybrid, which in 2060 means that she's suddenly little more than hunted game riding on time. With nicely digestible chapter lengths flowing freely throughout and dialogue set for the teenage reader upwards, Blackwelder is a name to be watched closely in this genre.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Unique Futuristic Novel October 6, 2010
I received an e-book copy of The Hunted of 2060 from the author in exchange for an honest review. Overall, I enjoyed the book. I read a lot of books in the paranormal genre, but have never been a big fan of shifters or hybrids. However, after reading the description of the book it sounded intriguing and I am glad the author offered to let me read and review it. The book introduces the reader to April, a student attending college in Alaska in the year 2060. The reader is then taken on a journey as it is revealed that April is part of an endangered hybrid species that are being hunted by the government in order to eradicate the remaining members and clans.

While the description of the book leads the reader to believe that they will be reading a love story, The Hunted of 2060 is much more than the common paranormal romance novels that are popular right now. While there is some romance throughout the book, I felt there was more focus on deeper topics like prejudice and betrayal. Personal growth is also a prominent part of the novel, which is clearly evident as the reader witnesses April come to terms with who she really is and finds her place within her clan and the human society. It was actually refreshing to read a paranormal novel that deals with these topics, and it really allows the reader to think and reflect on the repercussions that issues like prejudice and racism really have on society. Even though this book is set 50 years from now, the issues presented within the novel could easily apply to our society today.

There were only a few minor issues I had with the novel. First, some of the characters were difficult to keep track of.
