Beyond the Rain by Jess Granger
It is always a treat to find a new author that writes a good futuristic romance. Beyond the Rain is the first published book by Jess Granger and it is just such a find. This is the story of two very different people who are thrown together and must help each other in the struggle to survive. They find that their differences are what help bind them together. Beyond the Rain is set on a series of complex new alien worlds, each with its own unique culture. The world building is good; the pace is fast and the plot well developed. In Beyond the Rain the love story is blended into the action producing a very satisfying whole.
From the ending it looks like there will be at least one more book from Jess Granger set in this universe. I will be looking forward to the release.
If you think you recognize Jess Granger’s name she writes Ethel the Space Pirate, a free on-line story.
Penguin published Beyond the Rain by Jess Granger in 2009.
Beyond the Rain is available at Amazon.
