What could be worse than knowing the exact day the world is going to end?

Waking up to find out that it didn’t.

The post-April 23 world is a lawless, senseless, ruthless place, but it’s not loveless. At least, not for Rain and Wes.

But when the government begins holding daily televised executions as a demonstration of their power, that love is put to the ultimate test:

4.5 Stars!

... Final days.

A big thumbs up to this trilogy. Thumbs up to its covers. Thumbs up to its character development. Thumbs up to its world building. Thumbs up to its author. Thumbs up to myself for giving this series a try. And thumbs up to those who are planning to read this one in the future.

Note: This is an apocalyptic dystopian romance.

Do I sacrifice one life to save the others? Or sacrifice the others to save the one? My one.

This conclusion was everything I hoped it would be, S P E C T A C U L A R! It picks up exactly where the cliffhanger in the previous book left us. In such a short book, this last installment is adorned with outstanding character development, grit gore and glory of the apocalypse, and tons of

I have to say I was a bit scared to read this after the brutal cliffy at the end of book 2. So many possible scenarios were running tru my head, but I never once wanted to admit that this can end bad!
Gahhh, I was so frustrated for the first 30 pages, I really thought Rain is again useless and tstl , but this girl made a classy come back I might say!I was cheering her like crazy !

Wow... this was a disappointment.

What I thought would be an epic ending to this series turned out to be just... a fiasco. A disaster. A DISAPPOINTMENT.

One of my biggest pet peeves in romance novels is when the main characters are apart, or they do not spend enough time with each other. And this is basically what this whole book was. I can tell you now (because I counted it) that Rain and Wes spend approximately 70% of this book APART.

70% of this book was Wes being held captive and Rain t

I loved this trilogy from beginning to end. All three books made it into my favorites, each earning the spot in their own right. I especially enjoyed Rain’s evolution from lost girl to badass woman. She grew exponentially as life threw challenges at her and the result was utterly entertaining. Wes too experienced growth where his was a bit more subtle and in ways that made the contrast and range more impactful to the story arc.

The plot and premise of this series was refreshing and different fro

So here I am, frothing at the mouth for this baby, dying to see what becomes of this couple after I dove off the cliff that was Fighting for Rain. And I kid you not, I could not put this book down. If I didn't have to adult, I'm sure I would have had it done in about 3 hours. But also, if I'd done that, I might have been taken away in an ambulance due to how erratic my heart was racing as I devoured this book.

Wow!!! Seriously Awesome
A nerve wracking story set in nervous and anxious times, BB takes us on a thrilling ride on her pillion seat. Not only is the story relevant in present times, it gives us a peek into a crystal ball to show us all the dreadful probabilities, warning us of the impending doom, if we don't change soon. Captivating like a train wreck, mesmerizing like imploding building and enthralling like a nuclear explosion
BB spreads the story and winds it up PERFECTLY

*3.5 Stars- Overall Trilogy Rating*

Overall Opinion: This was a little better than the second book but not quite as good as the first for me. However, I wasn't the biggest fan of having a political message that ended up being a big part of this book. If I want to read a book about political views -- I'll read a political non-fiction book! I feel like it didn't need to go there and easily could've gone a different route just as effectively. Also, Mrs. Renshaw?! That was a little eye roll

🎶 It's the end of the world as we know it 🎶 After the humongous cliffhanger from the last book, I had no idea how this couple would ever see a happy ending. People are being executed for doing good works. If you try to save a life - executed. If you try to prolong a life - executed. If you provide medicine - you guessed it... executed. Wes has been arrested for providing antibiotics to Quint, finally separating him from Rain when no one and nothing else could. The entire story is about the d ...more

I was debating between writing three reviews or just one, but then I was like this series is literally like one book, so why bother with three! Besides, I'm a lazy person! So I apologize in advance for this following messed-up review!

As a series, I give it 3.75 stars, and if I have to choose between these three books, I'll choose the first one. Don't get me wrong, in general, I enjoyed it, but I kind of expected mor

I've never been good at writing reviews about books that I love. I doubt I will be able to start now. But I want to give it a shot, because I have NO IDEA why this series isn't 10x's more popular. I devoured this story in the same way as I did with the Hunger Games, Ms. Moning's Fever series, and the Downside Ghosts. I absolutely adored it, and this third and final book played a huge part in that.

I blew through this overnight. This trilogy was an easy read, though the story touches heavy topics. Such as depression, abandonment, murders, suicide-murders, theft, rape, drug-addiction, and others.

If you want to read a book with a plot circling around an apocalypse and how it pushes the human race to lawlessness, destruction, and devastation, while all these told from the point of views of our imperfect hero and heroine who tries to find salvation within each other, and throu

Wow! What an epic conclusion to Wes and Rain's story! B.B. Easton really brought her A game, delivering a riveting and deeply emotional story that put my poor heart through the ringer. The emotion was so intense that I felt it everywhere. It's a tale that is packed with all the feels. It was more than perfect, and I more than loved it!

This post-apocalyptic world they now live in punishes the innocent rather than the criminals. Can you imagine getting sentenced to death simply for giving a friend
Dying for Rain was an ok read for me. I really enjoyed the Trilogy but I feel like book 3 wasn't necessary. I don't enjoy my main couple separated for most of the story and that's exactly what happens to Wes and Rain. The ending is wrapped up nicely with a sweet HEA. While I had some issues with this book overall I would definitely recommend this trilogy. ...more

I don’t think this was a bad book but the series didn’t go the way I thought it would so for me personally it wasn’t an enjoyable read and as much as I liked Wes and Rains relationship they spent so little time together throughout the books that it had me wanting more from them the connection just didn’t feel there and talk about the quickest ending ever! Throughout the book Rain has unbelievable luck and then bam! book is over and everything is solved in a year the world is basically back to no ...more

Dying for Rain is the final instalment of the Rain Trilogy and thankfully it comes very soon after the second book, because let me tell you. That cliffhanger was E V I L !! However I was super intrigued to see how the story would develop and that kept me on my toes until the very end!

Dying for Rain was not only everything I knew it would be; it was the perfect conclusion to this epic story of love and survival in a vividly gritty and broken world meant to tear everything beautiful within it down. I shed tears of sadness and of joy, and the expertly developed characters had me rooting for some while simultaneously seething with hate for others due to the emotions that BB Easton seems to evoke from her readers so easily.

Dying for Rain is the final book in the Rain trilogy, and if you were hooked on Praying for Rain and Fighting for Rain, you’re sure to devour this one. It’s a wonderful end to the series, one that brings things together wonderfully, and you will not want to put it down.

Dying for Rain picking up where book two left off, and things move fast from the start. Although I had seen the detail revealed at the end of book two coming, it did not lessen my enjoyment of this book. In fact, the way it played

The second and third book in the Rain Trilogie was like the first book unbelievable gripping, exciting and brutal, maybe even more than the first one.
It's a dramatic roller-coaster of action, excitement and brutal reality after the predicted apocalypse that never happened. The world is a chaos and the laws doesn't exist.
Or exist, but in a way that looks like a parallel evil universe.

At the risk of being trendy, BB Easton DID THE DAMN THANG with the final book in The Rain Trilogy. The ending of book 2 was a doozy but I knew—I KNEW—BB would deliver a completely satisfying ending wrapped up with a pretty bow on top. Wrapped in skull and cross-bones paper of course, but still. Dying for Rain isn’t full of nothing but unicorns shooting rainbows out of their butts because it’s REAL to the whole story, and this grand story has been anything but frivolous.
