There are many subgenres that I feel I need more grounding in – if I had limitless time I’d do a lot more adult sci-fi reading, find stellar urban fantasy, and really go back to the ‘classics’ of speculative fiction to see what I missed when I was busy working my way through the college-bound recommended reading list in my high school years. One genre I feel some guilt about but might actually make some headway in? YA sci-fi. I’ve already read some of the foundation titles, and if I dive in, I could ‘keep up.’ The new releases in the genre are too tempting to pass by, in any case. Cori McCarthy’s The Color of Rain sounds fascinating. It will be released on May 14, 2013 by Running Press.
The Void cloaks many secrets, and Rain quickly discovers that Johnny's ship serves as host for an underground slave trade for the Touched...and a prostitution ring for Johnny's girls. With hair as red as the bracelet that indicates her status on the ship, the feeling of being a marked target is not helpful in Rain's quest to escape. Even worse, Rain is unsure if she will be able to pay the costs of love, family, hope, and self-preservation.
With intergalactic twists and turns, Cori M. McCarthy's debut space thriller exists in an orbit of its own.
