“The Rains” is a very fast paced and creepy read! This really reminded me of “Invasion of the body snatchers”. “The Rains” is for the science fiction reader! Told through a journal via Chance Rains you do find out what happened with the invasion which made the book even better. So many stories leave out things that the reader really does need to know. This one had some very strong developed characters, not to violent, very creepy, and very action packed!
The first YA page-turner from New York Times bestselling author Gregg Hurwitz. In one terrifying night, the peaceful community of Creek's Cause turns into a war zone. No one under the age of eighteen is safe. Chance Rain and his older brother, Patrick, have already fended off multiple attacks from infected adults by the time they arrive at the school where other young survivors are hiding.
Most of the kids they know have been dragged away by once-trusted adults who are now ferocious, inhuman beings. The parasite that transformed them takes hold after people turn eighteen--and Patrick's birthday is only a few days away.
Determined to save Patrick's life and the lives of the remaining kids, the brothers embark on a mission to uncover the truth about the parasites--and what they find is horrifying. Battling an enemy not of this earth, Chance and Patrick become humanity's only hope for salvation.
