In Rye Nova: Between Wrong and Right by K.M. Greffe, Rye Nova has been suffering from night terrors since childhood and the disturbing images that come to him are more than just nightmares; they are horrific premonitions. Working as a private investigator for a company that is not wholly legal, Rye battles to forget the constant visions; after all, he has no power to change the outcome. But as he enters a diner in Nevada one morning, this is about to change. When he meets waitress Tess, he is given the opportunity to save her life. Rye convinces Tess that she and her son must leave with him immediately if they are to survive. As they embark on their road trip to safety, Rye discovers that Tess may be hiding something from him. As he begins to regret his decisions to rescue her, Tess makes a shocking confession about her past and who may be trying to kill her.
The dark and intriguing plot draws you in immediately. I loved Rye as a character; on the exterior, he was a fearless man who had learned to fend for himself since childhood but this was hiding such a fragile, fractured soul. The main aspect of Rye Nova: Between Wrong and Right that struck me was the absolute enviable talent K.M. Greffe has to bring realism to both the plot and his characters using minute but powerful details. For example, the tattoos on Rye's arms that displayed images of his night terrors. The backstory of each main character was superb and explained so much about the behavior and mindset of the characters. I also loved the development of the relationships as the story progressed, especially between Rye and the amazing Mama Reece, his surrogate mother. Mama Reece had to be my favorite character; she oozed warmth, empathy, and kindness. I also believe she was the glue that held Rye together. There were incredible twists and turns throughout, which I did not foresee, especially the reason Tess's life was in danger. I thoroughly enjoyed the emotional and exciting rollercoaster of the storyline. The ending was another incredible twist; it was so poignant and powerful.
