This is just a short post today to say congratulations to Melanie Rees & Hague Publishing on the release of ‘Petrichor’. I was lucky to be able to read an E-ARC copy from Henry Roi PR. I have posted a link to my review below:
Petrichor by Melanie Rees
Synopsis from Goodreads:
‘Some things cannot be mended with baling twine.’
Drought has turned the paddocks of Paddle Creek Station to dust. Now the death of Clayton’s older brother has shaken his family to its core and left a gaping hole in Clayton’s memory. A hole his parents won’t even discuss.
When Waringa, in the shape of a fox-spirit, tells Clayton it’s up to him to save his family and to free the rain spirits held prisoner by the demonic Red King, Clayton must find a strength within himself he never knew he possessed.
But as Waringa guides Clayton towards his ultimate battle with the Red King, his quest brings his whole family closer to the abandoned homestead where his brother died. And as it does Clayton’s actions uncover raw wounds, forcing hidden memories to surface.
Goodreads rating: 3.81
