"Waiting On" Wednesday - Triptych by J.M. Frey

"Waiting On" Wednesday spotlights upcoming releases that everyone's excited about (created by Jill at Breaking The Spine.)


The one book that I absolutely cannot wait to get my pretty little hands on this week is:

TriptychTriptych by J.M. Frey: In the near future, humankind has mastered the arts of peace, tolerance and acceptance. At least, that's what we claim. But then they arrive. Aliens--the last of a dead race. Suffering culture shock of the worst kind, they must take refuge in a world they cannot understand; one which cannot comprehend the scope of their loss. Taciturn Gwen Pierson and super-geek Basil Grey are Specialists for the Institute--an organization set up to help alien integration into our societies. They take in Kalp, a widower who escaped his dying world with nothing but his own life and the unfinished toy he was making for a child that will never be born. But on the aliens' world, family units come in threes, and when Kalp turns to Gwen and Basil for comfort, they unintentionally, but happily, find themselves Kalp's lovers. And then, aliens--and the Specialists who have been most accepting of them--start dying, picked off by assassins. The people of Earth, it seems, are not quite as tolerant as they proclaim.

You can read some of the advance (glowing!) reviews over at J.M.'s site, and I plan to add my own as soon as I can get my hands on a copy!
