Very excited to be leaving this review right now! Rebecca Ethington is one of my favorite authors and has been inspirational to me to publish my own work just this year! 🙂 ‘Of River and Raynn’ is a brand new series she’s created and I was fortunate enough to get my hands on an advanced copy of the first installment: ‘The Catalyst’! Woot!
Synopsis (as taken from Amazon):
They found me when I was five; a little girl sitting on a bench in Grand Central Station, soaking wet, asking about the rain.
I remembered nothing about how I got there, or who my parents were. I couldn’t even remember my name. I was tagged, labeled and doomed to cycle through state care for the next twelve years; moving from one family to another. They all rejected me as the dreams began to come, the memories began to return, and things around me began to explode.
Now my mind is full of a world of shadows, things that my heart pleads with me to be true, that I hope are only fantasy. That the disturbing past I see is not mine.
When I sleep I hear whispers of magic, and of evil queens, and a world that exists alongside our own. Things that could never be. But, there is one thing I know to be true. That there was a boy who was torn from me. A boy that I know means more to me than a brother, or than a lover. But what he is to me, I am not sure. I hear him cry for me in my dreams, I hear people call him The Catalyst.
I know I need to find him.
I wouldn’t have tried, if I would have known that finding River, would have made all my dreams turn into a haunting reality.
