Stellar Eclipse: Cloudless Rain – Book Review


Stellar Eclipse: Cloudless Rain by Avalon Roselin

Rating: ★★★★★ (5/5 stars)

Truthfully, I’ll be frank: I went into Cloudless Rain not sure if I would like it. Usually from the get-go, stories with a mix of human and non-human creatures make me wary (let’s disregard sci-fi with aliens though – that’s a different way of looking at things altogether). But elements of a murder mystery and found family certainly caught my attention, and for that, I am so glad I picked this one up!

Avalon writes a compelling, heartwarming tale with unique and diverse characters. I felt connected to all four of the main characters: Eureka, Baltan, Azzie, and Lleuwellyn all have my heart. I was even intrigued by the mysterious Selkess who pulled on the strings of the plot. 

Other than catching the bad guy, I wanted them all to reach their goals! I wanted Baltan to come to terms with himself, for Eureka to accept himself, for Azzie to find his family, and for Lleuwellyn to accept his place. The realism of their goals, and the emotions the group shares, only compliments Avalon as a writer. 

The story itself is a fast and enjoyable read! I only wish there was more!

So for that, I absolutely cannot wait for the sequel. 

What’s it about? 

Murder is no unusual phenomenon in Marina Delta, a fact former investigators Baltan and Eureka know all too well. But when Eureka brings home a wounded child bearing the mark of an infamous serial killer they put behind bars fifteen years ago, it’s clear that this is no ordinary crime.
Baltan thought his days as a detective were done, and taking on the case will mean dealing with a demon they both would rather leave behind. However, with a bloodthirsty cult mobilizing again, a child with no past in their custody, and only days to stop the most devastating tragedy of their time, taking action is their only choice.
Caught between family, duty, life, and death, Baltan and Eureka will have to decide what they’re willing to sacrifice—and who they’re willing to sacrifice for.
