BEYOND THE RAIN
Granger's incredibly original and entertaining tale delivers passion,
compassion and personal destiny.
But while the relationship between
the hero and heroine is enjoyable, character motivations, particularly
in the beginning, feel abstract and unclear. Overall, it's a touching story about two people finding each other under unusual circumstances and changing their lives forever.
Soren begins to bond with Cyani, a process that saves his life but also binds him to her for life. He's now producing the hormone that will keep him alive, but if Cyani leaves him, he will certainly die. Promising to never take away her freedom, Soren doesn't tell Cyani that he's bonded to her. She must make the choice to stay with him or return to her people, without fear of his death. (BERKLEY SENSATION, Aug., 336 pp., $15.00)
