Lori Lopez has created a unique personality with Darius Exavier, an outcast who really wants to fit in, but doesn't expect much from life. So it's not greed that gets this young man in trouble, it's not lust and it's not foolishness. It's something . . . unnatural.
Darius Exavier, a Thin Man, found the carnival lifestyle much to his liking, surrounded by other misfits. And he was happy, right up until the carnival closed down. Then, with his friends spread far and wide, Darius has to strike out on his own to try to fit into a world that rejects the different.
He's used to being hungry, he is a Thin Man, after all, but Darius is down to his last bit of putting up with crap when a kindly stranger gives him a ride. She drives him straight to a place where he is offered a job, a warm bed, maybe even a friend.
But life's not always fair, as Darius is well aware, and pretty soon he discovers just how far he will go to survive.
This story left me wanting more. I think Lopez should write more about these characters, especially Darius. She has created a very real world here, and I highly recommend a visit. Unnatural is a winner!
