A Drop of Rain

Hi everyone,

Today I’m part of the MFRW’s Book Hook.
Here are a few sentences from my medieval fairytale – Rain.

He hovered high above the ground as the heavy rain ran over his lithe body. As each drop hit his skin, he revelled in the exhilaration of the storm as it swirled around him. With one deft movement his grey wings sent him soaring upward, where he spun and spiralled in the damp, cold air.

        There, he floated until a small movement from below caught his pale, ice-grey eyes. His interest snared, he swooped lower and saw with amusement that a small village lay below. It sat on the side of a river, in the shadow of a great mountain. As he flew closer, he saw its inhabitants running to and fro in a vain attempt to escape from the storm. The smoke from their hearth fires, which burnt so brightly in an endeavour to warm their tiny cottages, curled in the air and wafted up to where Maras flew.




1216 AD 

On the mountain, high above the village of Farran – Nuri is caught between heaven and hell. Two men fight for her love and her soul. The first is Maras, an elemental being who follows the storms. Nuri knows that he is not human, he’s something more. She believes he is her beautiful fallen angel. Yet he is transient and is bound to the elements and their love may be as fleeting as the storm itself. The second is Brother Erebus, a pious monk whose tortured soul is twisted by his desire for her.

But Nuri may sacrifice more than her heart when the Church brands her angel a demon. As Brother Erebus will do anything to protect her soul from the silver haired devil, even if he has to crush her body to do it.

  1. Lots of intriguing elements here. I already know whose side I'm on. :) Is it 'Rain' or 'A Drop of Rain'? Good luck with the release.

  2. Thanks Carly. The book is actually called Rain, I named the post 'A drop of rain' because I posted just a tiny snippet. :)

  3. Love all the senses being stimulated here!
