Tactile Therapy: Volume One by Durell Arrington is a science fiction novel with plenty of action and drama to keep you entertained for hours. The story follows two aliens who arrive on Earth with different goals that lead down the same path. Minutia came to Earth to find a rare artifact that fell to Earth after an asteroid attack was deterred by the humans. She entailed the help of 11-year-old Calvin who seemed to have abilities that were beyond humans. However, the path was not easy and treacherous enough to make them second-guess every decision they made. But she was not the only being on Earth with special powers and that was going to cause issues in her journey. Who was that other person on planet Earth? And was he going to cause problems for Minutia?
Tactile Therapy by Durell Arrington was the perfect beginning of an epic saga that will develop a huge fanbase. Minutia was a special character and the relationship she built with Calvin was priceless. She and Nerosion were powerfully crafted, their characters were mysterious and demanded my attention from the moment they were introduced. Calvin's character had a lot of room for growth and I loved that. I had some reservations about Minutia and Nerosion. I knew one of them was going to be the bad guy in the story, but I was not expecting what happened. I did enjoy the perspective that someone who was a villain to one person was also a hero to someone else. That theme ran straight until the end. The ending was surprising yet very satisfying as well. It was perfect to keep readers interested and wanting more!
