Title : Rain
Paperback : 1, 323 pages
What if you knew you had just met the other part of your soul—the one who could take away all the pain and loneliness—but no one believes you because the rugged stranger from the woods is nowhere to be found? Would you search for him? Would you be strong enough to believe he exist somewhere out in the darkness where he found you? And if you were to finally find the stranger from the woods and learn he is like no other tale that has ever been told… would you still have the courage to love him?
Rose has no time for romance because her father has passed away from an illness plaguing her small town, and now her mother has also contracted the illness, leaving Rose’s two younger siblings to be her responsibility. But when her best friend forces her to be young for a night and celebrate her twentieth birthday with a bonfire and friends, Rose meets a stranger from the woods, and Rose soon learns he is no stranger at all. In fact, this magical being is trying to keep her… alive.
Two bloods of one will bring down the shadows, to cast, no more…
India has done it again *sighs *
Rain is a fantasy book that blends mythical creatures with humans . I usually hate love triangles in YA books , but India has somehow managed to make the triangle tolerable for me . But I guess I will have to mention that India’s works are more about emotions and feelings than about adventures . Frankly , high fantasies should be full of swings but this isn’t that .
Speaking of Rain , there’s a lot of prose , so be warned . However , the prose isn’t like the one from [book:The Star-Touched Queen|25203675] . This is more ..enjoyable . And more touching . And more of everything .
I’m not sure I’ll be able to provide a pinpointed review for this book . There’s so much amazing things and yet , it just slips me . I’ll just tell you some great things : Amazing characters , Beautiful hidden meaning , Emotional angst , and a good overall read .
I was provided a complimentary copy in front for a honest review
