REVIEW – PRAYING FOR RAIN (Praying For Rain Trilogy, #1) by B.B Easton

SYNOPSIS

“None of this matters, and we’re all going to die.”

With only three days left until the predicted apocalypse, the small town of Franklin Springs, Georgia, has become a wasteland of abandoned cars, abandoned homes, abandoned businesses, and abandoned people. People like Rainbow Williams.

Rain isn’t afraid of dying. In fact, she’s looking forward to it. If she can just outrun her pain until April 23, she’ll never have to feel it at all.

Wes Parker has survived every horrible thing this life has thrown at him with nothing more than his resourcefulness and disarming good looks. Why should the end of the world be any different? All he needs are some basic supplies, shelter, and a sucker willing to help him out, which is exactly what he finds when he returns to his hometown of Franklin Springs.

As society crumbles, dangers mount, and secrets refuse to stay buried, two lost souls are thrust together in a twist of fate—one who will do anything to survive and one who can’t wait to die.

Perhaps, together, they can learn how to live.

Before their time runs out.

*****FOUR STARS*****

Maybe, one day, being treated like I matter won’t hurt so goddamn much, but I hope not. I hope it guts me every time, forever, as a reminder that this girl is a fucking miracle.

 

 

First off, can I just say how much I absolutely love the cover of this book? I was in full on cover-lust when I first saw it. Now, I am truly a big fan of B.B. Easton, but I did wonder if her writing was going to be as phenomenal as it had been with her ”44 Chapter” series. This time she wasn’t writing about her life experiences. Could she pull this off? I’m going to be honest, it took me a while to get into this story. Maybe it’s because I’m not certain that “dystopian” and “apocalyptic” stories are my thing, but as I said, I’m a fan of this author, and so I stuck it out.
I did eventually start to feel a connection to the story. I began to care about the characters.

During a time when the world was falling apart and chaos was running rampant, Wes and Rain find each other and although they started out as strangers they soon become inseparable.

Is the world coming to an end? Or is it all some crazy hoax? Will these two be able to survive the insurmountable odds that lay ahead of them? Can we wait until the Fall to find out what happens next for Wes and Rain? I’m counting down the days!!

Here are my overall ratings:
