A Song Of The Forever Rains
By E.J. Mellow Fantasy
Published July 1, 2021
Paperback – Kindle – Audiobook – Audio CD
From the award-winning author of the Dreamland series comes a new dark romantic fantasy about a young woman finding hope in her powers of destruction.
The Thief Kingdom is a place hidden within the world of Aadilor. Many whisper of its existence, but few have found this place, where magic and pleasure abound. There, the mysterious Thief King reigns supreme with the help of the Mousai, a trio of revered and feared sorceresses.
Larkyra Bassette may be the youngest of the Mousai, but when she sings her voice has the power to slay monsters. When it’s discovered the Duke of Lachlan is siphoning a poisonous drug from the Thief Kingdom and using it to abuse his tenants, Larkyra is offered her first solo mission to stop the duke. Eager to prove herself, Larkyra accepts by posing as the duke’s potential bride. But her plans grow complicated when she finds herself drawn to Lord Darius Mekenna, Lachlan’s rightful heir. Soon she suspects Darius has his own motivations for ridding Lachlan of the corrupt duke. Larkyra and Darius must learn to trust each other if there is to be any hope of saving the people of Lachlan―and themselves.
Welcome to the world of Aadilor, where lords and ladies can be murderers and thieves, and the most alluring notes are often the deadliest. Dare to listen?
Praise For A SONG OF THE FOREVER RAINS
“A spellbinding read…A dark, lyrical fantasy that merges vast worldbuilding with the best of romance tropes.” —Kirkus Reviews
“It’s so easy to lose yourself in Mellow’s evocative and engaging prose. Song of the Forever Rains blends excellent world building, wonderful character dynamics, and slow burn romance. I’m already looking forward to the sequel.” —Charlie N. Holmberg, Wall Street Journal bestselling author
“A story so immersive, it will haunt you long after the last page.” —Staci Hart, bestselling author
One of the best books I’ve read so far this year! I don’t often give out 5 stars, so when I do it’s because I absolutely loved it. It’s a book I could read over and over again.
The very first sentence had me hooked!
“The little girls played in a puddle of blood.”
It only got better from there. The main character, Larkyra, is one of my favorite MCs. She is formidable, brave, sassy and flawed making her perfect. The other Bassette sisters are also just as interesting and I can’t wait to see their stories unfold. Darius is a character that is kind and wants the best for his lands, but his father is destroying them as well as destroying Darius’s frame of mind. The Thief King is trying to find out how drugs are being syphoned out of the Thief Kingdom. I enjoyed following along on her journey, her first adulthood mission from the Thief King. There are just so many characters that you will fall in love with. You have a hawk that can change it’s side depending on it’s environment. Characters can also visit the Fade (to visit the dead) all for the small price of one year off their lives. A slow building romance that is just (chef’s kiss).
World building was phenomenal without being chunky or boring. The worlds involved are great! You have the regular world, Aadilor. Then you have the Thief Kingdom – where illegal activity isn’t only overlooked, it’s expected & welcomed. The magic system was one you don’t see in every fantasy book and completely refreshing.The plot was phenomenal! The pacing is fast and you will not be able to put it down. I can’t wait until the next book in the series comes out!
