Waiting on Wednesday: Rain

May 14, 2014

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

I really liked the characters and setting in Ink, the first book in the Paper Gods series.

Rain – Amanda Sun

RainSeries: Paper Gods #2
Genre: YA Fantasy
Published: June 24th, 2014
Links: Goodreads   Amazon

American Katie Green has decided to stay in Japan. She’s started to build a life in the city of Shizuoka, and she can’t imagine leaving behind her friends, her aunt and especially Tomohiro, the guy she’s fallen in love with. But her return is not as simple as she thought. She’s flunking out of Japanese school and committing cultural faux pas wherever she goes. Tomohiro is also struggling—as a Kami, his connection to the ancient gods of Japan and his power to bring drawings to life have begun to spiral out of control.

When Tomo decides to stop drawing, the ink finds other ways to seep into his life—blackouts, threatening messages and the appearance of unexplained sketches. Unsure how to help Tomo, Katie turns to an unexpected source for help—Jun, her former friend and a Kami with an agenda of his own. But is Jun really the ally he claims to be? In order to save themselves, Katie and Tomohiro must unravel the truth about Tomo’s dark ancestry, as well as Katie’s, and confront one of the darkest gods in Japanese legend.

    I haven’t read the first one in this series, but I really want to! I haven’t read hardly any books set in Japan, so the series would be something new for me. I hope you like this sequel as much as the first book!

    This is the second time I’ve seen it today, Ink wasn’t really my type of book, but hope you enjoy this one! 🙂
