Firstly I wish to thank Jill Burkinshaw of Books n All for inviting me on this Blog Tour for CATCHING LOVE WHEN IT FALLS by Deryn Pittar
William and Belinda, both genetically altered, meet years after leaving the government-rearing nursery. Their late development allowed them to escape a life devoted to the government’s defence departments. If their skills are now discovered they will be conscripted and never be free again.
William’s talent is to move through space between locations in the blink of an eye. Belinda can lift objects of great weight with her mind. Their relationship creates a raft of problems both struggle to overcome.
‘Catching Love When it Falls’ explores an alternative reality and discovers the one thing neither Belinda nor William can control – love.
HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW
Both William and Belinda had, had a lucky escape from the government facility that created a new breed of weapon, where babies that had been genetically altered to develop very special and unique powers. At times the alterations just didn’t take so at age 7 these ‘rejects’ were sold on to wealthy couples that could not have children.
The children that cottoned on and covered up their hidden talents managed to slip the net, along with late developers but they were now and again checked to see if the special powers had developed at a later age.
William, who had been adopted out at 7 after fooling the officials, was on a mission to help other survivors to slip the net of surveillance by deleting them from the government records. That is how he met Belinda.
This is a short story that really sees the nursery through the eyes of the children and only follows William and Belinda on the outside after being adopted and grown up. William and Belinda team up and seek former nursery children out that have been adopted. Each of them had very different talents, some which had adapted them into every day life as part of their work while trying to keep under the government radar.
This is a story that follows the changing relationship between William and Belinda into one of love. There are a further 4 books coming out in June and July with the box set available in August. The books altogether follow three generations of the Corban family as they duck and dive to keep out of the government clutches. An interesting concept for a series.
