What do you do when you lose what you love the most? What do you do when every breath is agony?

Jake Pendragon has lost the love of his life. Desperate for a fresh start, he moves to Longbrooke - a small British coastal town. The people are friendly, the town is quaint and Jake finally feels as if he could start anew. Then The Rain falls – an ancient weapon that only Jake can manipulate – and Jake is thrust into a world where Myth and Legend are reality and his bloodline the only possible saviour of mankind.

The rebirth of The Rain is a beacon to all that is sinister and as Jake meets his first challenge, he must quickly learn to master the weapon inside him or risk losing his new found friends. Will he succeed before it’s too late or will the deadly threat accomplish its lethal goal?

What do you do when your actions determine the fate of those nearest and dearest? What do you do when there is nothing on the horizon but uncertainty?

You lift up your chin and you fight back with everything you’ve got and hope - no, pray - for the best. If all else fails, sic your dragon on the bad guys.

Review:

They do it again! Amos Cassidy’s Crimson Series was a unique foray into Urban Fantasy, and I had no idea how they were going to do it with a new series, but they did. And they did it so well.the rain 3

Jake Pendragon is a man trying for a new start. A horrific incident shattered his life and he thinks moving to a small town would be just what he needs. He meets some interesting people, weird things happen, people start dying, and he realizes he is somehow involved. But the reader is kept guessing right up until the end. You are getting breadcrumbs as you read, but the “big reveal” is still so unexpected that I just sat and stared at my Kindle for a few blinks.

My heart was breaking for Jake the whole time. He would start to heal, then bam, something would happen to remind him of all he lost. Or he would learn something new and incredible to turn his life upside down. Fortunately he makes new friends that know a little something about what he is going through and can help him out.

The side characters are just as entertaining and loveable as Jake. My favorite is Greg. He is the perfect neighbor and I really wish he could move in next door to me. But unfortunately for all of us, he isn’t a real live person. And that thought makes me a little sad.

The mythology used in The Rain is one you don’t commonly see used in Urban Fantasy books. It was a pleasant surprise, so I won’t tell you what it is, but I think you will like it!

If you are looking for something different than your typical UF, your search is over! Pick up a copy of The Rain: Rebirth today!

    Okay, you have me sufficiently intrigued. πŸ˜‰ I like the sound of Jake and that the side characters are just as well developed as he is. And I’m curious about the mythology used. So I guess I’m gonna have to one-click this one! πŸ˜‰ Awesome review!
