Présentation de l'éditeur

Velvet Rain is a dark thriller of suspense, horror, and drama. [Contains graphic violence and profanity.]
"Exceptional writing on a par with Stephen King ..."
"Dean Koontz would be proud of this writer ..."
"A dark horror-thriller ... reveals the evils of humanity ... the demons hidden under human flesh."
"It's a gripping read--at times chilling, at times humorous, and at times deeply moving."

HE WAS BORN A MIRACLE. IT WILL TAKE ONE TO SAVE THE WORLD.


Kain Richards is the last of his kind--and a man on the run. So when this mysterious drifter falls for a beautiful and sensible Iowa farmwoman, he knows full well the perils of getting too close. And yet, for the first time in his miserable existence, life feels normal ... feels real. But as those around him soon realize, reality is not what it seems. For when a tragic accident forces Kain's hand, his astonishing secret--and godlike power--changes their lives, and the world, forever.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Amazingly good prose 25 octobre 2012
Par Jeffry H Bledsoe - Publié sur Amazon.com

David C. Cassidy has an amazing talent for writing descriptive prose. From start to finish, Velvet Rain is excellent. The only issue I had with the book was that Part II begins with such gruesome images of torture that I almost felt that I myself was being tortured. Interestingly, I sometimes have this problem with one of my favorite authors, Iain M. Banks. However, both of these authors are just so good that they are worth a bit of discomfort. Fortunately, the happy parts of Velvet Rain are just as well written as the unhappy parts, making for really good read.

Velvet Rain would make a great movie; it offers suspense, thrills, terror and love. I could not stop reading, just had to know what was happening next! Looking for another David Cassidy book now...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Sunshine & rainbows anyone? 30 octobre 2012

Just my simple thoughts- No profound thought provoking revelations here. Once again I picked up a book I would normally steer clear of, but I figured at .99 why not? Flippinwonderful! The writing style wasn't what i'm used to so it took me about 50 pgs in before I was fully drawn in, but once in I couldn't put it down Setting aside the great characters and time period-the idea/concept/execution of the *sideways* timelines was fascinating. I really really liked this one & am glad I read it but...ahhh the ending? I so hate to cry..*bittersweet* (maybe just me) Looking forward to future books by this author!

Kain Richards is a drifter; he is also what we might call a mutant. He has an unusual ability which in the opening chapters, for reasons not explained, he uses for petty thievery. But of course mutants have been hunted down and, in his case, tortured with a brutality that is beyond comprehension. Even when others of his type have been introduced and their miserable ends described--in leisurely, almost obscene detail--I cannot say I understand this form of evil. Other novels have introduced to us the notion that real evil exists in this world; but the evil of the mutant hunter in Velvet Rain is beyond comprehension. One can understand that he wishes to possess the power of the mutant, to understand how it works and to improve on it to his own ends. But, beyond that, I confess that my imagination fails me.

In between the grungy beginning and the third part, the end (introduced modestly as "Hell on Earth"), there is a very long adagio of "normal" life in farm country with teens playing baseball and losing, one of them at least, his virginity with the town's whore. These are extremely leisurely scenes, even when there are moments of foreboding as when the animals sense the strangeness of the drifter (they do not like what they sense but we do not learn why) and the discovery of horrific domestic abuse of the kind served up by recent TV depictions of criminal behavior.

The author has an undeniable power of imagination; even his vision of evil and cruelty might be acceptable as a form of literary license. But, for this reviewer, writing so burdened needs to be at a trot if not a canter.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Sci-Fi Thriller with heart 4 novembre 2012
Par D. L. Burnett - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Kain Richards is a drifter who meets good and bad people as he wanders through the US. The story's characters are strong and the good characters are likable. This Science Fiction thriller has an interesting premise and many scenes worked, but I expect a thriller to have tension or conflict on almost every page.
The beginning's disconnected chapters and lack of clear goals confused me and stole tension. I wasn't sure what Kain wanted. The danger seemed vague. The first ten chapters seemed unfocused. At Chapter 11, the story started to work for me. The relationship between Kain and the "good woman" Lynn develops nicely in a slow-moving middle section but their relationship seems more loving friendship and lacks romantic tension.
The secondary characters are well developed. I liked Lynn's two children and her parents. The dialogue sounded realistic and authentic. Although there are vague hints, the reader doesn't know how bad the villain is until a graphic scene halfway through the novel. The bad characters violating the pastoral setting give a dramatic ending.
The writing moved better when the reader stayed in one character's point of view per scene. After finishing the book, I reread the first part and understood it better.
