Review: Of River and Raynn - The Catalyst by Rebecca Ethington

They found me when I was five; a little girl sitting on a bench in Grand Central Station, soaking wet, asking about the rain.

I remembered nothing about how I got there, or who my parents were. I couldn’t even remember my name. I was tagged, labeled and doomed to cycle through state care for the next twelve years; moving from one family to another. They all rejected me as the dreams began to come, the memories began to return, and things around me began to explode.

Now my mind is full of a world of shadows, things that my heart pleads with me to be true, that I hope are only fantasy. That the disturbing past I see is not mine.

When I sleep I hear whispers of magic, and of evil queens, and a world that exists alongside our own. Things that could never be. But, there is one thing I know to be true. That there was a boy who was torn from me. A boy that I know means more to me than a brother, or than a lover. But what he is to me, I am not sure. I hear him cry for me in my dreams, I hear people call him The Catalyst.

I know I need to find him.

I wouldn’t have tried, if I would have known that finding River, would have made all my dreams turn into a haunting reality.

Rebecca is a genius,using social media in conjunction with a book to intertwine an ongoing story that brings you into more of a reality than just a book. I fell in love with River and Raynn through the journal entries, videos,and social media posts(facebook,twitter,pintrest) and was excited to join Rebecca on this new adventure.She blend two worlds together creating a dual reality that leaves Raynn thinking what she sees in her dreams are just nightmares and what River says is memories.We have two children,one boy and on girl, just appear in two different cities soaking wet and no memory of where they came from or their life before that time.Though due to the foster system they are separated for years,their one determination has always been to eventually find each other again.But finding each other again may prove more dangerous and damaging than losing each other all those years ago. This story draws you in as you get more and more engrossed into this mind blowing story!
