THE AFFINITY BETWEEN US is part of a 4-book saga about Deities, soulmates, and destruction.
The first novel, THE AFFINITY BETWEEN US, follows three main protagonists:
Kevin: a shy boy who’s been thrown into the hands of the government over the alleged murder of his twin over their world’s edge.
Nikki: an emotionally-distant, curious girl who needs answers on both of her siblings’ sudden disappearances.
Derek: a fun-loving person who awakes on a distant shore with no memories and expectations to rid this strange, new world of a demonic race.
From the birth of three siblings, powerful and belligerent Deities who haven’t yet died stir from their 500-year slumber and are devotedly pissed the fuck off.
Without greatly spoiling the main issues within the story, from most on-page time to least, THE AFFINITY BETWEEN US contains:
- Unhealthy codependency from childhood trauma
- Forced hospitalization/incarceration
- Mind control/body snatching
- Religious trauma involving sexuality and gender
- Plague/plague survivors
- Self harm
- grooming of a child
- childhood homelessness
- Sexual assault of a minor (mentioned, not shown)
- Forced drug intake
If you do not feel comfortable with these themes, please do not read the novel.
Now, without further ado!
