Author Robbi Sommers Bryant Creates New Genre In Recent Release, ‘The Beautiful Evil’

Robbi Sommers Bryant's recent release, ‘The Beautiful Evil’, is a fresh approach to the psychological thriller, built upon the fact that one in ten people is a sociopath, and that one of those sociopaths may be living next door or, perhaps, within

Author Robbi Sommers Bryant's recently released ‘The Beautiful Evil,’ takes readers on a frightening journey into the psyche. Like many classics before it, ‘The Beautiful Evil’ is a dark fantasy filled with symbolism, madness and internal struggles between good and evil.

“I wrote this book,” stated Ms. Bryant, “to share the work I've done developing a new genre of the psychological thriller. One in ten people is a sociopath. This book allows readers to meet the sociopath next door or, perhaps, within.”

'The Beautiful Evil' takes readers through the tumultuous consequences of one woman’s journey into a dark, personal hell in the pursuit of passion, hope and serenity. Constance’s domineering mother controls her life. Her mother chooses her friends, activities and clothing according to her rigid, high society standards. Devoid of self-expression, Constance's only true friend is her reflection in a bedroom mirror. Constance's adult life proves to be just as passionless and controlled. Constance believes her life will stay this way forever, until a purchase of an antique vase changes everything. When she opens the vase, demons storm into her life. Like bloodthirsty parasites, they dig into her, quickly attaching themselves to her psyche; quietly stealing away her soul. 'The Beautiful Evil' will keep readers questioning reality until the final ultimate act.

"Readers will enjoy this book," continued Ms. Bryant, "because it will hook them from the start. Many find they cannot put it down. All of the reviews I've received from readers, on Amazon.com, have been 5 stars. It's unique. It is truly a new genre of the psychological thriller."

Barbara Watkins of AllBooks Review stated “‘The Beautiful Evil’ is a riveting, hypnotic tale – one of which I believe its presentation is unique and genius. Bravo Ms. Bryant – Bravo.”
