Author Lori Pescatore's Human Blend is an absolutely fascinating novel because it is one of those rare stories which, while being an exciting, fast-paced and easy to read sci-fi/paranormal fantasy, great for young adult readers, it also offers the possibility of deeper philosophical reflection for the discerning more mature reader. Without wanting to reveal too much for fear of any spoilers, the unfolding mystery brings up extremely complex questions, including: Does true environmentalism mean a concern only for the earth itself, or does it necessarily include a respect and love for all earthly creatures, including human beings? Does genetic manipulation have only biological ethical concerns attached to it, or are there profound questions of individual personhood and spiritual issues involved as well? And are supernatural powers a blessing or a curse, something that volatile and conflicted creatures like human beings are not really morally-advanced enough to possess or have access to?
A cast of very likable and sympathetic protagonists, well-developed relationships and conflict, page-turning suspense and action and an intriguingly original plot make Human Blend a novel readers won't want to put down until the mystery is solved and, although Ms. Pescatore supplies no easy answers or judgments on the ethical questions this first story provides, I eagerly look forward to the next books in the trilogy to see where she goes with this unique concept, as well as to get to know Julie, Austin, Eli and Marcus better in their continuing story. A wonderful debut novel and recommended reading!
and for those of you who remember 1969, you may have noticed that the title of my review jokingly recounts an old three dog night song.....that is relavent in its own way....but you have to read the book to find out why. so to sum up, a hint of danger at the beginning, slowly-building tension, an entertaining, well-written story with paranormal elements about a girl with special gifts......a well-executed, action-packed climax......this is a wonderful book that delivers a delightful read. i highly recommend this story to fans of the paranormal.
