Book Review: Rendezvous Rock by Rickey Bray
By: Rickey Bray
Young love can be a wonderful thing and in the book Rendezvous Rock by Rickey Bray, he spins a story that is full of promises, teen love, and a fantasy world where a young man may need to give up everything to be with his soul mate.
The story revolves around a 15 yr boy, Eric, who while on a camping trip with his uncle Ned, falls deeply in love with a beautiful red haired girl named Susan. Susan is not just a beautiful girl – she is striking and different from anyone Eric has ever met. Different in a way that Eric doesn’t understand until their time together starts to come to a close.
He finds that Susan is actually a witch and sees Eric as her soul mate for life – Susan then offers Eric a lifetime agreement of sorts. Using a piece of Susan’s beautiful braid, which is then placed on Eric’s ankle, their bond is secured for life. That is, with one stipulation; As of that day, they are forbidden from seeing each other for 10 years. After 10 years, they are to meet back at Rendevous Rock, where they have made their vows.
During the course of the book, you follow both Eric and Susan as they grow and their lives change. Eric finds that with his bond to Susan, he has unknowingly become part of a world, called the Three Circles, where he is meant to protect the bonds within for the rest of his life. These bonds will test his inner strength and the bonds that tie the two together.
What a wonderful book and honestly, I wish it could have continued! I would have loved to see a sequel even though this story is summed up in one book. Highly recommend!
