STRANGE LITTLE BAND

two psychics, one baby, and a mega-corp that owns them all

By A. M. Harte, editor, author of Theatre of Horrors

Jul 24, 2009: The story follows the psychics Addison and Shane, who both work for the mega-corp Triptych, a mysterious company that seems to specialize in almost everything. Both of the main characters are strong and manipulative; it’s refreshing to read a story with such complex characters and so much hidden politics at play.

Addison is passionate, stubborn and controlling, oftentimes bitchy, teleporting pet psychic of Triptych’s boss, and a fiercely protective mother.

Shane is a part human, part alien supreme martial arts expert and workaholic, who has no friends by design. As a matter of fact, any time he seems to experience strong emotions, he retreats into his emotionless alien side, thus appearing heartless and uncaring.

 . . . now imagine the two of them having a baby.

Technically, this is a dark paranormal romance, which is personally not my cup of tea. But this isn’t the PWP you’d expect from the genre, this is something slightly more twisted, set on a background of a corporation that is as mystifying as it is sinister.

The beginning is perhaps a little slow, more character-driven than anything else, but the setting is intriguing, and I look forward to discovering more about Triptych now that Addison and Shane have a tentative trust. There are a couple of typos as well, but nothing too serious.

And the website is professional & easy to navigate, which made me very envious!
