I've read two other Blaylock novels, The Last Coin and All The Bells on Earth. They are both epic battles of good and evil, with little doubt about who are the good guys and who are the bad. They are both fantastic books and are highly recommended. The Rainy Season is different. It is more atmospheric, fuzzy. The characters are not black and white, everything is very gray. Quite fitting, given the title of the book. The book revolves around memories, captured and reclaimed from the past. As usual, Blaylock weaves the supernatural into and around the fabric of everyday life. The book starts a little slow as Blaylock sets up three seemingly unrelated story lines. Once they connect though, the story builds to a very satisfying ending. If you like Blaylock, you'll like this. If you have not read Blaylock yet, you might want to start with something else, like The Last Coin.
