Seth King Surprise Release ~~ Autumn Rising – A Novella
AMAZON – IT’S LIVE
Autumn Mahal and Hank Basara know they should stay away from each other. Both recovering from the loss of a mutual friend, and each bearing scars of their own, they know their love would look like a worn cliché, a trite romance novel for teens, some crappy made-for-TV movie languishing on your great aunt’s DVR. But as summer gives way to September and flirtation leads to something deeper, they learn there are some types of love you cannot run from, no matter how hard you try to flee.
Hilarious, heartbreaking and hopeful, Autumn Rising is a novella about the happiness we ruin for ourselves, the truths we can’t hide with a filter, and that elusive and victorious moment when we let love rush in and carry us to the sky. In a world of constant TMI, prepare to feel a story worth sharing – a story that will stay with you long after the summer fades to autumn.
Louisa’s 5 Star Review
On Thursday Night, an email showed up and this is exactly how I felt. A surprise novella release by Seth King! What more could a girl ask for? A book from the same author as my #1 read this year (The Summer Remains) (Check out our reviews HERE) – You need to read The Summer Remains before this novella – Available on AMAZON
So, how do you follow-up The Summer Remains? How do you even compare to the complex feelings that Seth brought to my life with The Summer Remains? Well, he did it with Autumn Rising.
Mr. King has taken it just one step further. How do you “get over” losing your best friend? How do you move on? How do you live without such an important part of you missing? Mr. King has done exactly that with Autumn Rising. He has done this with grace, tears and even a few laughs. Mr. King is witty and funny!
“A girl from high school, Victoria…suffered from a condition Autumn liked to call Kayne face, wherein someone looked so smug and obnoxious all the time, you got the urge to punch them in the face even when they weren’t saying anything.”
We have Autumn and Hank, two lives that were brought together by Summer and losing her could possibly bring them together and then tear them apart. Learning to heal from Summer’s death, learning to live with the constant scare of her cancer returning and Hank’s loss of his arm…these obstacles will make being together difficult, but is it possible they can heal each other?
“Because life breaks your heart. That is how this place works. What you must do if find someone who will fall into bed next to you every night and stare at you with burning eyes and put you back together again. Find a love that replenishes you…”
At times you may find the angst level to be unbearable. I think we may have a new “KING OF ANGST”! At times I wanted to strangle Autumn, the decisions she makes made me shiver, cringe and cry. Mr. King has the ability to make your heart hurt and make you want to give up on the belief that love can fix all things. You feel it all while reading this book.
The only problem I had with it? I NEED more. I will always needs more from this beautiful cast of characters. They have enlighten my spirit. They have changed my outlook on life. I dare to say, they have made me a better person. Bring on some Cooper next!!
Thank you Seth for sharing your words, your feelings and your brother’s life through your words. I feel honored to share them with you. I can almost guarantee you that he is smiling down upon you at this moment. He is smiling at your through his children eyes each day. You have most definitely made him proud.
Note: I am sure many see a young man writing a romance novel as not believable. But I would hope you would not allow that prejudice to sway you from reading this. This young man has put into words how many of us have felt while falling in love, growing up being the “not so popular girl”, and overall self deprecating beings that many women find themselves. How he has this insight is beyond me, but he is on point so many times, it’s as if he’s has snuck into my thoughts and read my mind.
