A new student review of Rain

ReesaOnFire posted a new student review of Rain . See the full review.

Ms Amanda Sun has the same super powers as her characters in “Rain”, because her storytelling swept me up and took me over!

“Rain” was stunning! Ms Sun crafted an intriguing story, a satisfying sequel and a determined troupe of characters.

I thoroughly enjoyed the book. Sun’s characters came off the page and had me reacting with them. I was embarrassed when Katie acted obviously like a foreigner, I was suspicious when Jun came to the scene and curious when “Nii-chan” revealed a new part to the Legend.

Tomo and Katie’s chemistry flew off of the pages—they just clicked, and I loved it.  The heat and love between the two is so strong, that even I believe they could take on the world. But it won’t be easy as Sun’s plot thickens, leaving me impatiently waiting for the next book. The book did seem to rush a bit, so I had to reread it, but I enjoyed every minute of it.

On a sidenote, the paintings in the book were very charming; I thought they were a delicate touch.

I give this book four stars out of five for it's intriguing plot and beautiful characters.

This book was very close to receiving a five out of five from me; I only relented because at times, the book seemed to rush too quickly through certain plot points—I wish they had a bit more time.
