THE OTHER KIND a world created by Mike Arusaga gets LADYBUGGED

What a deliciously converse world Mike Arsuaga has created in 

THE OTHER KIND, and I love how he's focused this introduction into his new world on this most unlikely pair.

Reading about Sam and Jim, I thought back to all the dynamic power couples throughout history and realized pretty much all of the ones we remember WERE highly unlikely. NONE of them should have worked. Seriously, think about it...

Samson and Delilah...

Caesar and Cleopatra...and if that wasn't unlikely enough for you...

Cleopatra and Marc Antony...

Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, just to name a few.

Let's face it, Sam and Jim are a bit more unlikely. At least all of those couples above had pulses, making Sam and Jim's claim of love all the more unlikely...yet 

Mike Arsuaga makes it work, draws us in, and has us cheering for them every step of the long, convoluted way. 

I know this is the start of a series and I'm looking forward to the adventures this gifted author is going to take his THE OTHER KIND world...and of course us, his readers...on.

Well Done. 

FIVE STARS for a spectacular star on one powerful journey.
