Oh my sakes, folks! I am incredibly stoked to read this book! I've had it on my to-read list and on my book-release calendar for a good long while, now. Yeay! Rebecca Ethington's books just blow my mind; they are amazing & intense & beautifully tragic. If you haven't read her Imdalind series (Kiss Of Fire) then you need to get your butts in gear, or rather, on the couch and take part in this incredible journey. It will leave you breathless and heartbroken.
From BOB - Back Of Book:
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.
