Clay Jacobs harbors a dangerous secret. Evie, the object of his teenage obsession, isn’t human. But instead of destroying the supernatural threat, as he’s been instructed by the Rain—the organization he belongs to—he let her escape.

The memory of the one who got away not only haunts him but holds him captive and assaults him nightly. Unable to escape the visions, and the guilt, he races across the country to locate her and correct his mistake. Instead of the monster he expects, he finds a woman who ensnares him with her charms. In her embrace, Clay dares to imagine a different life. One free of the constant need to kill.

His family—and the oaths he made to them—is not so easy to escape though. When the past catches up to him, it won’t only be his happiness but also the life of his lover at risk. What will it take to free himself from the grip of the Rain?



Besieged by Rain (Son of Rain, #1)Besieged by Rain by Michelle Irwin

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

** Gifted by the publisher in exchange for my honest review **

Having read book 1 of Daughter Of Fire Series I knew most of what’ was happening from Evie’s POV, and I’ve always been hesitant in reading books of a story that’s been told before by a different character, and so far Ms Irwin has done well to give enough detail and perspective through Clays eyes to keep me invested in the book.

This book is a good companion to Through the Fire Book 1. Ms Irwin has done a great job at bringing us Clay’s POV and a deeper look into the mind of ‘Rain’, especially 50% through the book, I am not going to say what happens, but at this point was where I really got interested in the story because we find out what Clay was doing when he left Evie in book 1.

Ms Irwin has a talent for writing paranormal books, I like them because her characters are different, and the Hunter Group that are tasked in eradicating these Paranormal’s has a great scope for more books, I do hope that she does continue to focus on ‘The Rain’ as although there are lots of books that are centered on the ‘Hunters’ of the supernatural, I liked her spin on the group and the ties to Noah and the Floods when they first started their campaign of hunting the ‘Supernatural’s’ left on Earth.

Reading this series reminds me of my favourite TV show ‘Supernatural’ so if you like that TV series then this book may interest you as it did me.

We are left with a cliff hanger, as with Through the Fire but its not too bad, and I look forward to seeing where Ms Irwin takes this series next.
