When Rainbows Cry
The Sequel to Where Rainbows Hide (can be read as a stand-alone novel)
When you’ve just turned 14 and you’re an impossibly lanky teenager with overlarge feet but no friends, what can you do to make your life suck just a little bit less than it already does?
This question consumes Petra Sucher. Frustrated by the lack of understanding she gets from her parents and their demands on her as unpaid childcare for her 4 year old twin brothers, she spends illicit hours in the Rainforest exhibit of her Domed city’s Natural History Museum. During one of her pre-dawn visits Petra finds a crystal figurine which orchestrates her meeting with an octogenarian and a gen-chimp called Tanda. Together, the three of them unwittingly create a triumvirate which will either destroy their existence or be the saving of it.
Brueberon is the loneliest dragon there ever was on Long Upon A Time World. Vandabar the Wizard is away on holiday and can provide no solution to Brueberon’s problem. So he’s off to seek help from Kastaspella. But will Kastaspella’s costly magic really help him? What if everything goes wrong when he takes her potion? And how will it affect a dreamer like Clarissa Henry who loves drifting in and out of Brueberon’s world?
Will going beyond her Domed world lead 19 year old Neera to the rainbows she’s been seeking so long? She still has no clue where her life is going. Hopelessly drifting from one job to the next she finally applies for a last chance job on-board a shuttle heading out on an expedition beyond her Domed world. Will this last ditch attempt to find her niche in a fractured world finally bring her the answers she needs to be the person she longs to be?
