GoodReads Synopsis

When Calli Courtnae breaks the World Record for the 100m, she is invited to Montana to prepare for National tryouts. However, upon arrival using her lip reading ability she realizes she’s been lied to, or at least not told the whole truth. She's a superhuman, a Runner, and her new world includes transporting packages for other supernatural groups.

She’s paired up with an overly anxious Gothic roommate, is continuously glared down by the gorgeous top-dog, Chris, who feels she doesn’t belong, and is placed on a delivery team to transport a valuable magical diamond to a clan of terrorists who can kill with their thoughts.

Chris, the team leader, is given the diamond, but Calli secretly receives the real stone along with a vision of the future and an explanation of why she was hand selected to carry out the mission. Almost immediately the hidden diamond oozes unprecedented additional powers and abilities in Calli making her more sought after than the diamond itself.

 

My Thoughts

 

Our heroine in this book is Calli. A normal teenage girl so she thought. Never popular in school she only had one true friend Sue, but that is all about to change at a track meet where she was enchanted. That track meet changed everything in her life for a short while. During the track meet she was discovered and believed to be a superhuman one with exceptional speed. And was whisked away to become a runner for the Runner Clan.

This is the first book in the Unaltered Series. It is unique in many ways. I enjoyed this read. Lorena has wonderful world building skills. The characters are awesome and flawed in there own little way which makes for a good read. Calli is a heroine with mixed emotions throughout the whole book. Who manages to make a enemy real fast but also manages to make a few friends also. Calli is thrown into a world of super-humans in which she would have never imaged to exist. She is set on a journey where she later learns that she was especially selected to be on. On this journey she faces many dilemmas and emotions that she never expected to have. Being an unaltered human she developes special skills. With the help of a diamond that posesses the skills of all the super-humans. She and a few others from the Runners Clan a part of the Super-humans are to deliver this diamond to the Death Clan in return for the hostages the Death Clan have taken. Little do the Death Clan know that once they come in contact with this diamond that it will be the death of them.
