Author J. J. Eckhardt has set his latest book, Psychic Storm II: Sisters of Aphrodite, in Conshohocken.
The first book in the series, Psychic Storm: The Overlord, was primarily set in post-apocalyptic Philadelphia and the surrounding area since he wanted it to have a local flavor. Eckhardt grew up in Philadelphia and now lives in New Jersey.
One of the characters in the first book feels like someone is trying to control him as he drives down what was the Schuylkill Expressway in the area between Norristown and Conshohocken. When It came time to choose an area of concern close to Philly, for the second book, he chose Conshohocken since it is a well-known to locals.
Below is the description of Psychic Storm: Sisters of Aphrodite from Amazon:
A dark look at a future where humanity has gained psychic powers through an undetermined event that killed the majority of the population and altered forever those who survived.
The Overlord is dead, and Philadelphia has become the home of Sanctuary. The rebuilding continues as the search for William intensifies before he can attack Philadelphia to try and purge the world of the abilities, but is William the threat Sanctuary believes?
Upriver from Philadelphia, the Sisters of Aphrodite, have taken over the town of Conshohocken and turned it into a new Hell for the young men and boys they have enslaved, using them to fulfill their sexual desires and depravities.
Sanctuary calls on Stephen to help prepare operatives to enter Conshy and report on the sisters’ actions. Things don’t go as planned, and Stephen must put himself at risk to save his friends and along with an unknown ally, destroy The Sisters of Aphrodite.
The book is available on Amazon for $15.95 (paperback) and $8.99 (Kindle).
