Crying in the Rain

Hannibal Barca

Death isn't an end, it's more of a speed-bump.

Victimised, Cassie lives under the shadow of Thaddius. When Harry sticks up for her in a school-yard dispute, he unwittingly causes her eventual death at the hands of Thaddius. Caught between her conflicting loves and hates, Cassie returns to haunt her small town as a vengeful spirit of water.

Please note: I am going to change the title back to 'Crying in the Rain' as soon as possible.

For a moment, I didn't realise what I was reading, then it became obvious. In a very strange way, this is one of the most beautiful books I have ever come across. You are obviously very talented, and this is a piece of artwork. I was impressed by the way you managed to create the story with only two... view book

I'm not usually a fan of this genre, but I've been astounded by some real gems before, and so I was willing to give it a go. While I always do my best to approach a story with a totally unbiased viewpoint, it's not easy, and to be fair, your short pitch didn't help this. I accept that people will te... view book

An excellent book. You started almost directly in the action, and descriptions of later events helped explain the earlier ones. I loved your descriptions of the g-mechs. I also felt that the story was strong, and the retelling was vibrant. I think I would have got more from the passing references if... view book

I was immediately drawn in by the pitch. The premise was something fresh, and I couldn't wait to read it. I was a little wary of the mentions of elves and dwarfs and trolls, and I was a little surprised by the use of the term 'fairyland' in conjunction with historical places and characters such as ... view book
