Blog Tour: Caught in the Ripples (Review)

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

Summary from Goodreads:

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. 

Book One:
At Water's Edge (The Water Rushes #1)
by S. McPherson
Genre: YA Fantasy
Release Date: November 10th 2015

Summary from Goodreads:

When 17-year-old, Dezaray Storm drunkenly stumbles across a portal one night, her downtrodden life begins to change, mainly because she starts living someone else's life.

Accidently trading places with the most powerful sorceress of the realm Coldivor, Dezaray finds herself assuming the identity of her magical lookalike, having to convince everyone in the realm that she's the real deal.

Aside from a few minor hiccups along the way, like the fact that she is not magical nor does she know even the simplest cards trick; Dezaray soon finds herself settling in. Particularly in the arms of Milo; a blue-eyed jokester with the ability to teleport.

However, it doesn't take long for Dezaray to realise that life on the other side is far from glitz and glamour and that creatures unimaginable are hunting her. A war is brewing between the seven empires of Coldivor and those that long to take over. Dezaray's enchanted double is their only hope; their secret weapon, set to be unleashed on her eighteenth birthday when she is gifted the powers of her forefathers.

But for the enchantress to return, Dezaray has to leave, and the thought of going back to Islon fills Dezaray with dread, for more reasons than one. Torn between a reality she can't stand and a fantasy she can't keep, Dezaray is struggling to see how any choice she makes will lead to a happy ending.

I'm so glad I had the chance to read these books! With a beautiful cover, and an excited blurb, I was excited when I found out about the Water Rushes series! It starts with Dezaray's life spinning out of control and she desperately wants a change. That change comes when she enters a portal to a parallel world! Unsure what happened, or what to expect, she agrees to pretend she's here look-alike twin from another dimension! Then things really start to get interesting! I enjoyed both books, and am completely in love with  McPherson's writing style! I love the tone used and the world she created was both intriguing and exciting! This is a great start to the series, and I'm excited to see what happens next! With magic, mischief, mayhem, and madness, you never know what to expect! Join Dezaray as she tried to escape reality, and stop evil, all in a day's work. What should she do? And will she be able to make the right choice?
