The Hybrid: Antecedent
by Teresa Marie Wallace
Annabel Morgan always felt as if she didn’t belong. But, upon meeting seemingly perfect Shaw Weatherly, she finds her life completely altered in every way. It isn’t long before she discovers Shaw’s secret. He’s something more than human. And to make things worse, he’s with her because of what she is. The only female of their alien hybrid race.
Shaw’s betrayal is unforgivable, and Annabel sets off to find herself without him. A rugged Australian named Connor soon offers to help her unlock her dormant abilities and prepare for what’s coming. For what’s on the horizon is a war between men of another world . . . and she is the prize that goes to the winner. A New Adult / Young Adult paranormal romance. Then she meets Jason, a man with a troubled past who also brings the promise of a normal life, and his offer may be too good to let go.

As far back as she can remember, Teresa Marie Wallace found it difficult to pass up an empty journal or notebook that sat waiting to be filled with life stories or fantastic tales. But, it wasn’t until well after college, majoring in something that didn’t give her joy, that she realized what she truly yearned for. One day, while doing the dishes, it came to her like it had been downloaded straight to her brain . . . “Why not write a novel?” A year later, between raising two boys, helping to run a business, and long late nights trying to put thoughts to paper before falling asleep, she finished her first manuscript.
Today Teresa lives just outside of Fort Worth, Texas, where she continues to write, dream, and wait for the next download
“The Hybrid: Antecedent is a definite page-turner! I could not put it down and I can honestly say I’m not a big fan of reading. The author did an amazing job of making me fall in love with the characters and I couldn’t wait to see what would happen next! I love how it is so easy to get lost in the fantasy of the story yet the main character is so totally relatable. A MUST read!“— J. Johnson
“I struck gold. This book captured my attention and I couldn’t wait to see what was to unfold next. Annabel’s character has a naïve, yet strong and sexy presence. The storyline tracks well and each character is built according to their role in the book. This is one of the few books that make you want to laugh, love, and fight. The chapters are short, so I was able to step away after read three or four. Unfortunately, I was so engrossed in the novel that I kept coming back to read more. I found the book to be a quick read and knocked it out in a couple of days.“—W. Helton
“This book is highly addicting and I can not wait to finish it!!”— M. Rovenko
The Hybrid: Antecedent is the story of Annabel, a very rare female alien. We begin the tale quite innocuously. Annabel and her half-sister Claire are on vacation in Australia two years after the tragic death of their parents. While there, Annabel meets Shaw, a movie star, and falls head over heels for him. Claire has to go back to the states, but Annabel stays in Australia for a couple extra days. It’s during those two days that Annabel falls for Shaw.
Their romance is something out of the storybooks. Shaw always seems to know exactly what Annabel wants and needs. They’re perfect for each other. But then Shaw has to go away to film a movie and Annabel is left alone for a few days. It’s at that point that all hell breaks loose. Claire tells Annabel that she’s not human. Neither is Shaw. That Shaw’s after her because of who and what she is and that Connor is her only hope.
There’s a lot to like in this book. The romance between Annabel and Shaw is sweet and tender. There’s plenty of sex had, but not a lick of it is actually described, so this book is suitable for older teens. There are a lot of lessons that Annabel learns, specifically about how to be a strong person in her own right. But there are also evil aliens, a lot of scary situations, and some questionable decisions on everyone’s parts. I enjoyed the mystery of who was really behind it all and why.”—P. Shaw
