The world is secretly divided between
the unknowing humans and the Path who are gifted or cursed
with telepathy, empathy or other extra sensory powers. The
Organization for Path Security or OPS monitors and deals
with the rogue Path.
Telepath Vance Gregory has been with
OPS for some time. His gifts showed up earlier than most
and stronger than almost everyone. At one time Vance had a
personal relationship with OPS leader Pietro Gratteri, but
nowadays itís strictly business.
Underworld Path Marcus Rose not only
controls far too much already, but now he is trying to
chemically control even more, humans. He is a threat that
must be neutralized soon. First order of business is
capturing his lover Ayan. There is something special about
Ayan, but no one is quite sure what that is. Some gifts
canít easily be explained, nor can attraction it seems once
Vance and Ayan meet. The question is, will Ayan strengthen
or weaken Vance in the battle to come against Marcus?
Afterthought is an
intriguing, sexy tale with unexpected twists and turns along
the way. Clever, fascinating characters Ė heroes and
villains alike make Afterthought more than
your average fantasy tale. There is a somewhat dark, moody
gothic flavor to this modern day story that stands out which
I liked. Afterthought has an intense vibe
revolving around a relationship, trust and fate. This isnít
Ďliteí entertainment, but it is definitely entertaining.
