Book Review - Caught in the Ripples, By S. McPherson

Caught in the Ripples (The Water Rushes #2)
Genre: YA Fantasy
Release Date: July 31st 2016


When the Exlathars escaped the battle that night, their silhouetted figures merged with the sky, their wings swatted at stars and the Coltis people were too busy celebrating their victory to realise that there wasn’t one.

Now the Exlathars are back. And they bring with them remnants of everybody’s past.

Back in England, Dezaray discovers just how deep Coldivor’s connection to Earth really goes. But she cannot change their past and she cannot see how to alter their future. So it seems the ripples that shake the surface are only a glimpse of what’s brewing beneath.

'Caught in the Ripples' delves deeper into the Water Rushes saga, answers questions the first book raised and plunges you into an ocean of intrigue and magic.

They thought the Elenfar was the end…turns out it was only the beginning.


This was a great second book for the series.  I did read the first book as well, that review will follow at a later date.  The series has a great underlying story.  The two realms, with the idea of more, is a great story line and so many things can be done with either realm.  The characters interact well with each other in either realm.

I can say that there are times when I felt the story moved too quickly and I had to go back and reread things to fully get what was happening. I think that with some changes this could flow better.  The ideas are great and the plot flows pretty well, but the author rushed some things too much.

Dezaray is a great main character.  She is flawed and really, because of what I do for a living, I could see her better in my head.  She is an abused child, and yes she is a child.  She has had to face so much, but I think that with the proper work she can become one of those characters that everyone can relate to in books.

Over all, I think this book, and really this series, has a great start to it but there is more that needs to be done.  I think that with some time and the right edits and rewrites the books could be even better!!
