People who know me know how much I LOVE apocalyptic novels. And I've read it all: vampires, werewolves, killer viruses and of course, my personal favourite - zombies. There is something about being in such dark, disastrous times that draw me into these novels. I love them. I crave them, and I cherish them dearly. Maybe it's living in a world void of rules. Gone are morals and the need for law and money. Or maybe it's the way the apocalypse brings... things, dark scary things that we didn't know lingered inside of us all. That's why I love these types of novels and that's why I especially loved this series by Virginia Bergin.
When I saw The Rain I was immediately drawn by that little bit under the title "Just one drop will kill you" Hello? Can you imagine living in a world where the rain is poison? We need the rain to survive. Humanity couldn't live without it. So how could you defeat such a deadly enemy? You can't. In The Rain if one drop gets on your skin you're doomed. You can't touch it or drink it, so how do you survive?
For the first time ever I'm not going to review this book like I normally would. I'm not going to summarize my likes or dislikes. I want you to read it. I want you to dive into this series without any hint of what's to come. And trust me you won't regret it. I promise. I strongly recommend you getting both The Rain and its sequel The Storm because once you start you won't want to stop.
