Title: Affinities (Lifecycle - A Parapsychological Thriller Series Book 1)
Author: Chris Hollis
Reviewer: Margaret Millmore
4.5 Stars (October 2014)
My initial impression (the first few chapters) was of complete confusion, which I truly believe was the author’s intention and it worked! So well in fact, that every time I put the book down, I was constantly thinking about it. The predicaments that the characters are in are emotionally draining and the author’s ability to put the reader inside the characters’ minds is impressive, you can almost feel their anguish and confusion.
Andrew wakes in the middle of the night (night after night) to discover he cannot remember what has happened to him during the day, but he knows that something is happening. Then there’s Daniel, he does know what’s happening to Andrew during the day, well Andrew’s body at least. Initially the reader wonders if Andrew is schizophrenic, but the twists and turns lead the reader on an unexpected journey through the lives of the two men.
The intertwining of Daniel’s desire to live conflicts heavily with Andrew’s desire to get his life back but also interferes with the lives of others and leads to mystery and mayhem. A well written must read for any supernatural aficionado.
