Rendezvous Rock is difficult to classify as to genre. It could easily be classified as YA, Romance, or YA Romance, but none of those comes close to covering the variety of the story Rickey Bray has crafted. In addition to the romance of its youthful protagonists, the story is built around an earth-based religion that espouses, as one of its tenets, natural genetic engineering. Healthy doses of action, espionage, fantasy, adventure, conspiracy, magic, and borderline erotica also run through it.

“For my part, I have ever believed, and do not know that there are witches.”
~Thomas Browne, Sr.

Ah, young love and the promises they try to keep. The lovers to be are Susan, a beautiful green eyed, red haired, 15 year old, witch and Eric, a dark eyed, dark haired, handsome, 15 year old, Halfling. They meet on a camping trip that Eric and his uncle Ned...more

Renedezvous Rock caught my attention right away. I knew that I would love reading it because of the writing style. I was drawn in through the words. Few authors live up to their potential, but Bray is truly a wordsmith. I was glad to exercise my own vocabulary.

The world building is exquisite. As a reader being dropped into a complex world with unique circumstances, in this case witches, can be daunting. Some novels fail because their worlds are not introduced properly. Yet, Bray does it seamless...more

A very well written novel, so absorbing. The characters are extremely well drawn and the plot- original and very affecting!
Richard Hemingway
One of the joys of reading a novel is that each author has a distinct voice and a little world for you to explore and learn something from. Contrast this to the usual fare you see on TV and the movies: a homogenized mass market that may entertain with gratuitous sex, violence and surface reflections on social mores – in other words a literary Twinkie, tasty but nothing really to chew on. Rendezvous Rock by Rickey Bray is a first novel that will give you more than a Twinkie taste for you to chew...more

This is one of those books that is so easy to read, but is very difficult to review. The dilemma is how to write a review worthy of the book, a review that will personify how great the book is without giving away too much detail. Here's trying...

Rendezvous Rock is absolutely bewitching, pun intended. While it is something of a behemouth in size, though there certainly are larger ones out there, it's such a smooth read that size truly doesn't matter in this case. It's also not a fast-paced story...more

In Rendezvous Rock by Rickey Bray we are swept into a world of love and magic. Though the book for me starts out slow and took me a little while to get into I stuck in out and soon found myself swept into a very interesting and complicated story.

Eric and Susan are young teens who fall in love for Eric his love for Susan is something that is new for him and will test his strength and draw him into the mysterious world of The Three Circles and open him to a world he never knew existed it will also...more

In Rendezvous Rock by Rickey Bray, young Eric and Susan meet while vacationing and fall madly in love. Eric, at only 15 years old has never experienced the feelings that he has developed for the mesmerizing green-eyed, flaming red haired beauty that is strikingly different from anyone he’s ever met before. Beyond a shadow of a doubt, Eric knows that his adoration for Susan surpasses everything else and agrees to marry her. For Susan, a young witch, this is the beginning of a prophesy that will p...more

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...more

e book:

While vacationing in the mountains, Eric meets an unusual girl, Susan, who has sparkling, emerald eyes that are unusually captivating. They are a unique, singular shade of green and seem to be imbued with an ancient fire that even a spoiled, youthfully unperceptive Eric could easily feel. He senses a strange maturity about this mysterious girl and is drawn to her like a magnet."When I said we would never be married, I meant in your way," Susan said. "Will you marry me in my way? Right now...more

I like the concept of witches never being "young" as though to be a witch in itself strips one of the innocence associated only with the very young. I hope to have a rendezvous with this book.

Even though I did not win this book in the giveaways, Author Rickey Bray took note of my interest, and was kind enough to send me a copy!

I love reading books like these because you can lose your self in the story. I know I have said it before but this would be a great Life Time movie. I liked reading the book and it flowed well. I found myself thinking about the characters in the book when I wasn't reading it. This was a great read.
Stacy
This was an intricate, beautifully crafted story that's hard to classify. What started out as a silly YA romance evolved into something much more.
Kaylee
I received this book free from Goodreads giveaways. This book was amazing..... I loved it:)
Susan
Let me start by saying I won this book on the first-reads giveaway page. I appreciate the author giving away these books and giving me a chance to review it. I'll be sharing it with other friends who I think will appreciate it (more than I did).
I really wanted to like this book. I am a bit dissapointed though. The language doesn't flow easily. It seems like the author really struggled to find the right words for his thoughts. I found myself having to re-read some passages to help it make sense...more
Jessie
BOO! This book was one of the biggest wastes of my time EVER! I swear every positive review must be friends of the author to consider this good. I do not rate things 1 star usually. I do not read half a book just to be so utterly bored with it that reading an encyclopedia would be more entertaining.

Everything was drawn out. The characters have no depth. At first I was hoping for something. The first few pages had some potential. Not a lot, but some. They hook up, part and then it all falls apart...more
Brandy *Ahviel*
Okay so after winning this book in one of the giveaways I actually set it aside because the sheer size of the book was a little overwhelming. But slowly I made my way through the book. I have to admit that I found at times that I was having difficulty following the story. But I also had some difficulty understanding exactly what the author was trying to convey. Overall it was a good book. We all know what it is like to have that young love and to want it to be that HEA. But like all young loves...more

Rendezvous Rock is a real page turner! I was inspired reading the author's bio at http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/.... Here is a man who despite personal tragedy and drug addiction, was able to transform his prison cell into a creative studio, and in the process transform his life. Thank you Ricky for sharing your incredible giftedness with us. I hope to see some of your other books in print.

I won this book on First Reads. I was really excited about it, because the story seemed interesting and it has good reviews. But I really struggled reading it. The biggest problem is the language of the book, it doesn't flow, it is too pretentious. Some sentences I had to read few times in order to understand. This really killed my desire to finish this book, so for now I have put it away unfinished.
Brianne
I won a copy through the first reads giveway. I was also very inspired by the authors bio, it was a very sad story and Im glad he was able to overcome his tragedies. This was a good read however the writing style didnt flow so well for me, it did take me a while to finish but over all I enjoyed it. I will definitely be reading more from this author!

Because so many people gave this book good reviews I feel a need to continue reading it. The writing is overly flowery, though, that it is difficult to get through passages. Sometimes less is more effective.

Won in a goodreads giveaway! Just arrived----WOW this is a thick book!

I enjoyed this book, I liked the story line, it did feel a bit dense word-wise at times.

Lorelai
I liked this book overall. Who doesn't love young love? It was a bit dense and long at times to where I felt a bit confused. It was worth the read.

Growing up in the rural Elgin, Oklahoma area, my life was happily normal with my wife and three young children. All of that changed abruptly on a spring day in 1978.

We were returning home from an outing in the mountains when our car was involved in a head-on collision with a drunk driver. After the screeching of brakes, glass shattering, and half of our car destroyed, my wife and two of my three c...more
