Paris Is A Bitch -- A Rain/Delilah Short Story
on Oct. 14, 2011
The prelude for Detachment. As a hard fan of Mr. Eisler's works on the Rain series, I need to read all the books in the series before coming to this one. Hence the long delayed review.
Anyway, despite being a short story, still superbly delivers the Rain saga as I know and love. I am anxious to find out more how the relationship between Rain and Delilah will develop after this.
Strong writing, enchanting, magical, realistic, great attentions to details not only on environment but also on character development that make you believe they truly exist. Hard to forget and put down once you begin reading.
Very highly recommended!
