Besieged by Rain
(Book One – Son of Rain series)
Release Day Blitz
February 28, 2015
Bottom Drawer Publications is proud to publish Besieged by Rain, book one in the New Adult Paranormal series, Son of Rain, by Michelle Irwin.
The Son of Rain series is a companion series (of sorts) to the Daughter of Fire series featuring Evie Meyers. We say of sorts because Clay’s story, albeit partly told in Evie’s books, is so much bigger. This is not simply a retelling of the story from Clay’s perspective. Clay lives a whole other life that Evie only gets a glimpse of when their story unfolds.

Clay Jacobs is a soldier. His family—elite members of a secret organization—are tasked with washing the world clean of all supernatural threats. Each new day brings the opportunity to fight at their side for a cause that he’s never doubted is just.
But Clay harbors a dangerous secret. The object of his teenage obsession was not human, and he failed to detect the truth until it was too late to destroy her. Even after she fled, he couldn't bring himself to report her. Now, the memory of the one who got away not only haunts him, it holds him captive and assaults him nightly. Unable to escape her hold on his mind, he races across the country to locate her and restore his sanity. Only instead of the monster he expects, he finds a woman who ensnares him with her charms. In her embrace, Clay dares to imagine a different life.
When his family discovers his betrayal, and threaten to destroy his dreams in the worst way imaginable, Clay has no option but to return to their side and convince them he’s back on the right track. Will he be able to play his part convincingly when the cause he’s spent most of his life fighting for is the very thing that will end his lover’s life?
Clay Jacobs is one of the elite members of a secret society of ''protectors'' their job is to rid the world of, so called, monsters, what he wasn't counting on was falling in love with a beautiful violet eyed teenage girl (Evie) who is the epitome of everything he should hate. This is the story of a man that falls in love and does everything within his power to protect his heart, his family and his childhood morals. Imagine waking up one day and being forced to question every piece of morality that your parents have ever taught you? imagine no longer knowing what was ''right'' and what was ''wrong'' upon meeting Evie, Clay's forced to be cognizant of the fact that the world is not black and white, it is in fact a diverse prism of greys dipped in a thin veil of opinion.
While I adored Evie's story in 'Through the fire' it left a lot of unanswered questions (where did Clay go? what did he learn? what other beasts are out there?) 'Besieged by Rain' answers them all....and cunningly leaves you with a few more! Michelle has done what she does best here, She's dragged you from your own mundane boring existence, into her very own fantasy land of pixies and creatures that set your imagination on fire, moral dilemmas that make you think long after you've turned the last page and (perhaps most importantly) she teaches you a lesson in humility!
I utterly adored this addition and I'm waiting with baited breath for the next instalment! 5 stars!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Michelle Irwin has been many things in her life: a hobbit taking a precious item to a fiery mountain; a young child stepping through the back of a wardrobe into another land; the last human stranded not-quite-alone in space three million years in the future; a young girl willing to fight for the love of a vampire; and a time-travelling madman in a box. She achieved all of these feats and many more through her voracious reading habit. Eventually, so much reading had to have an effect, and the cast of characters inside her mind took over and spilled out onto the page.
Michelle lives in sunny Queensland in the land down under with her surprisingly patient husband and ever-intriguing daughter, carving out precious moments of writing and reading time around her accounts-based day job. A lover of love and overcoming the odds, she primarily writes paranormal and fantasy romance.
