Addison and Shane, two self-centered psychics, work for the cut-throat Triptych Corporation. Their insular lives are disrupted when, due to Triptych’s machinations, they become unlikely parents. How can they raise a child when they can’t trust each other?
Strangle Little Band wasn’t quite what I expected. When thinking of ‘band’ I imagine music being involved but it is a group of people who it is referring to.
I did get hung up plenty of time on the British slang terms that I am not used to hearing or reading, I understood the meaning of them but they really slowed down the flow of reading. Not a bad thing at all, just something that I am not used to.
I enjoyed the strong characters, the description of them built a strong image in my mind of them physically and their personalities. Though when I look at the cover, which I had not seen before this because I read the e-book, the Addison and Shane pictured do not match my idea of how they would look. There is that difficulty when bringing a book to a movie and I guess the same for any other photo images.
Strange Little Band was a very interesting story of an unexpected and even forbidden romance in a corporation built upon super-humans and their powers ranging from teleportation, telepathy, witchery, extra strength and fast healing. A futuristic feeling takes place as the living and working quarters of this corporation are described. The hopes to breed a better specimen takes place and so do many sex scenes, which was more than I would like to read about but did explain a lot about the characters and their relationships. Though that is not how they ‘breed’ the talented workers for Triptych, they prefer to use the petri dish option and hope for the father to stay in the unknown of it and that the mother doesn’t grow a connection to the growing baby in her belly.
Overall I enjoyed the story, a few things that I didn’t care for or that made reading a little difficult for me but didn’t ruin the experience.
