The year is 2119. Twenty years ago the world changed forever. Almost overnight, the serene, blue sphere that was once our Earth was reduced to a dark green smudge shrouded in a blanket of torrential storms. Millions died in the flash floods. Millions more succumbed to disease.
Luna McKelly’s parents were among the survivors who fled to the shielded city of New Denver in the early years of the disaster. Now 18, Luna is a gifted scientific prodigy working on a cure for the dreaded Blister Wart disease–a fungal infection that rapidly consumes its host if left un-checked. But when an expedition into the swamp goes horribly wrong, Luna soon finds herself questioning everything she thought she knew as her entire world unravels around her.
Riley Barton is a new author to me, and possibly to many others, but I can see his writing going far in the future. Rain Saga has a very fascinating plot line and excellent characters full of excitement. His writing style brings the story to life wonderfully and I couldn’t put the book down after starting it.
The fight details were absolutely perfect, as I could see, hear, smell and even feel what was happening; however, the details for the rest of the story were kind of lost and I had trouble visualizing what was happening outside of the fighting. So it was slightly unbalanced in that area but not so much as to affect my rating.
In light of all, I fell in love with the characters and this book will be shelved with my favorites! I rate it 5 out of 5 stars and anxiously anticipate Riley’s next novel!
