Book two of 'The Rain' duology equals awesome! I read the majority of this book late at night while I was babysitting with an actual storm swirling around outside. Then I read a few more chapters, in the bath. Oh the sweet irony...
Ruby's mission to find her Dad is still on the go, but in the midst of chaos she has lost Darius and the Princess. Ah gosh, I am struggling with this review as I don't want to spoil anything but everything that did happen is spoiler worthy. Such is the problem with series... Okay, maybe I will just talk about the things I liked in this book, and if you want a synopsis, go to Goodreads...
1. Ruby is morphing into someone more complex, but it isn't automatic or instant. I liked the way Bergin made this very slow transformation over the two books, but yet made it feel like a realistic fifteen year old's depiction of the apocalypse.
2. I liked how Bergin had characters who thought that the rain was a good thing. Hello diversity!
3. I liked how Ruby acknowledged how much she actually cared about everyone who wasn't her family (unlike in book two).
4. I found my self chuckling quite a bit in this book and I liked that.
All round, I was very impressed with this book and I thought it was wrapped up well. It was an exciting and excellent series, kudos to you Bergin! :)
