The clouds gather on the horizon. The air fills with moisture. Be warned; the storm is coming.
Deep underground, a madman plots. His science is diabolical, his terms are genocide. With the touch of a button, he launches toxins into a storm cloud, toxins that will turn the rain silver. There is no escaping it. There is no hiding from it. Worst of all? It's coming for us.
Elsewhere, two friends prepare to leave for a destination wedding. A family awaits the return of their father. A mother works hard for her children. It's another day in America. But when the storm looms and the clouds threaten to break, every eye will turn to the sky. Everyone will feel fear.
From the Sierra Nevada Mountains to the Appalachians, from the skyscrapers of New York to the hills of L.A., the world will shake in terror. This is...Silver Rain.
For the most part, I enjoyed listening to this book, though there were a few things that left me scratching my head, like the ending. In a way I found that refreshing because I doubt very much it'll become a series, like so much of the fiction produced these days. Also, I'm not sure if it's my modern sensitivities at play or it's just a coincidence that the phrase "all lives matter" is repeated quite a few times. Though it could be just a coincidence, I found it noteworthy for some reason. There are moments that the narrative (and the narrator's voice helps a lot) becomes surprisingly creepy, and I wondered if again, it was my overreaching imagination, or there are a few religious undertones in this book. Overall, i found it original, though the science isn't quite plausible in my opinion.
