Description From Amazon
What if the next stage of evolution was caused by the oversight of man and what if that oversight was a simple medical mistake?
Raine Donnelly is born three months premature by emergency surgery after his critically injured mother is admitted to the hospital, having been the victim of a drunk driver though her early expectant state is not discovered until after a series of x-rays are performed to assess the nature and extent of her injuries.
Now as an adult, Raine knows about none of this and lives a quiet, functional and strictly routine life in Colorado though his life begins to spiral hopelessly out of control as he begins to have blackouts and believes he's hallucinating. He also starts to have the most dastardly effect on electrical equipment as for whatever reason, machines malfunction or short out completely when he gets anywhere near them while he's upset or confused.
His doctor thinks he may have a brain tumor and insists on further testing though that may prove somewhat difficult when a nameless and faceless someone keeps trying to put bullet holes in him and when he meets the wife and children about whom he has no memory, his life becomes even more complicated, partially because his wife is furious at him because she's thought him dead for three years.
Now, drawing on all his courage and what little understanding he can piece together with the help of his wife, Raine must unravel the mystery of his past and discover and accept who and what he is without getting he and his family killed.
Wynter Adelle's Literary Escape
This is a book I was given for free by the author for review. I did not know a lot about it when I picked it up, but I decided to give it a chance. This is the kind of book you really have to begin without knowing too much about it. Half the fun of it was trying to figure out what was going on as I read.
Synopsis: (in my words)
Raine Donnelly, a bachelor, is at his home in Colorado when some pretty strange things start happening…The knob on his radio turns seemingly of it’s own volition, turning the volume up to uncomfortable levels…He’s in the shower when the contents of his medicine cabinet begin floating about the room in a mini cyclone, flinging themselves against the door with enough strength to dent it…Is he being haunted? Is he crazy? is someone playing some kind of elaborate joke on him? Raine goes in to get scanned for brain tumors because obviously he is having some wicked hallucinations…
Somewhere far away a widow and her two daughters live their lives without their beloved Raine, who died in a car accident that plunged their beloved into the depths of a river…
Something I asked myself a lot while reading this book: “What the heck is going on?”
From the moment I began reading this book I was hooked. The writer was extremely skilled at giving just enough away while still keeping you in the dark and wishing you could figure it out. It was exciting, suspenseful, and generally great.
Then we get to the bad part……
The ending. Oh! the ending! AHHHhhh! Seriously, if you had asked me what my review would be when I was like 90% done with the book, I would have told you that I was going to give it an EXTREMELY positive review. Really, I liked it that much. But then I got to the ending…. It was one of those moments where I just sat there, staring at the page thinking, “Seriously? That’s the ending?!?!?” :::sigh::: It left me with SO many questions. (SPOILERS AHEAD): Basically, it wrapped up some stuff, like Raine coming to grips with his past and taking revenge on the people that had terrorized him. Ok, fine, good. But then it basically just ends there. We don’t know what happened to Raine after that, we don’t know what happened to his wife and kids after that. We don’t know whether his children have the same abilities as he does, or if they are just psychic, or what on earth they are… We don’t know how the government is going to react to someone with Raine’s abilities or what Raine is going to do about that to protect himself and his family. We don’t know what happens to Dr. Calloway (the lady that was studying Raine): Did she figure it out? What would she do with such information? What about the witnesses to him doing all sorts of crazy stuff? There should be repercussions that Raine still needs to deal with!
Ok, so by typing out the above rant I have been led to the conclusion that if the writer does a sequel that explains all these things, then this first book can be considered awesome! But if not, then reading it will only lead to disappointment. I really hope he does write a sequel, if so I will buy it. If he doesn’t, I will eventually put this book in The Dustbin. For now, it stays on the Bookshelf.
