"American Katie Green has decided to stay in Japan. She's started to build a life in the city of Shizuoka, and she can't imagine leaving behind her friends, her aunt and especially Tomohiro, the guy she's fallen in love with. But her return is not as simple as she thought. She's flunking out of Japanese school and committing cultural faux pas wherever she goes. Tomohiro is also struggling—as a Kami, his connection to the ancient gods of Japan and his power to bring drawings to life have begun to spiral out of control.This. Was. AMAZING!!!
When Tomo decides to stop drawing, the ink finds other ways to seep into his life—blackouts, threatening messages and the appearance of unexplained sketches. Unsure how to help Tomo, Katie turns to an unexpected source for help—Jun, her former friend and a Kami with an agenda of his own. But is Jun really the ally he claims to be? In order to save themselves, Katie and Tomohiro must unravel the truth about Tomo's dark ancestry, as well as Katie's, and confront one of the darkest gods in Japanese legend."
Throughout the story, I was totally with the characters! I felt what they felt, feared what they feared, and that was an amazing feeling! I love Katie and Tomohiro and even Jun, regardless of what he is (*wink*).
I was a lot like embarking on an amazing journey and Sun gave her world so much more substance in Rain! This was so amazing and I'm so glad that it didn't disappoint after how amazing Ink was!
You've got amazing talent, Amanda Sun, and we're so lucky that we got to experience some of it! Goddamn amazing piece of writing!
