Touch by Rhythm

A survival story 

People make mistakes.

Not exactly inspiring, I know. But it’s true. Even the best of intentions can lead to bad decisions, and those decisions can come to haunt people down the line. It doesn’t make us evil. In fact, I’d say it’s what makes us human.

This is a story about mistakes and the group of children who make them. It is also a story of recovery, of promise, and of learning in a world where the deepest hurts can grant the most wondrous of powers.

Please remember to be forgiving. They are only children, after all.

Note: Touch contains some graphic violence and harsh language.

A serialized novel, updating weekly

The (Not) Bad Touch

By Lonesome Traveler, member

Oct 19, 2017: First things first, Touch is not a story for everyone. It handles its subjects tactfully, but even so, this is a story which is fundamentally about troubled children and painful emotion. I don’t see that going away.

I’ll be honest and state straight out that this isn’t my kind of story. It’s a bit of a slow trek, with prolonged descriptions of the minutia of emotions and motives of its characters. That’s not necessarily a bad or a good thing, but [more . . .]


She’s got that invisible…

By Walter, author of The Fifth Defiance

Jan 26, 2018: [Disclaimers: First, I am doing this as part of a review swap. Second, Touch is still a young serial at this point, with only its first arc available for review. What you read may bear little resemblance to what I’m reviewing by the time you read this]

Touch takes place in a world like, but not exactly like, our own, where superpowered folks clash in a parallel world that most people aren’t aware of.

Worth the read, and worth reading the warning.

By revfitz, author of Existential Terror and Breakfast

Dec 18, 2017: Disclaimer: This review was written as a part of a review swap.

Touch is one of the few things I have read that truly deserves a content warning at the start. I used to balk at things like this. Literature, in my opinion, should never be held to the same ridiculously Victorian standards as television or film. If something is offensive, or dark, well, that’s art. I am glad that this one was up front, however.
