At the age of 10, Kain Richards discovers that he has a very special gift. Learning about it from his grandfather, Kain gains some understanding but unfortunately loses his grandfather within a few days. Unsure of how to control his ability to turn back time and alter the course of events, Kain creates havoc and comes under the scrutiny of a power-hungry government operative who stops at nothing to secure Kain to study this phenomenon.
Velvet Rain by David C. Cassidy follows Kain as he drifts from one small town to another, trying to stay under the radar. Tired of a life on the run, Kain begins to feel comfortable on a small Iowa farm where he quickly becomes entangled in the drama surrounding Lynn, the owner, her two children, and crazy ex-husband. After using his ability on the farm, relationships become strained since the family does not understand what they have experienced. When Kain’s picture hits the newspaper, he knows his time is running out. Will he be able to save the people he has come to love or will his ability bring them even closer to danger?
Complex characters, an amazing premise, and excellent writing make Velvet Rain a tremendous read. David C. Cassidy has delved deeply into the human psyche as well as social standards and straight-forward, heartfelt emotions to create a world where anything is possible, but at more of a price than Kain may want to pay. Evocative descriptive prose, realistic dialogue, fantastic action, and intense emotion combine to make this three-part book one to savor.
