Love pulls two people together, while tearing two others apart. As Daniel and Rachel discover the beauty of first love their best friend loses her heart to the deepest darkness. Unable to hold Maggie together, Rachel and Daniel find out that love doesn’t have to hurt and that it can change your life.
Cloudwalking is Rachel and Daniel's story who are Maggie's best friends from Find You In The Dark. You can find my review of Find You In The Dark here. Cloudwalking takes place parallel to Find You In The Dark so if you haven't read that first, please do as this one contains major spoilers. I had been looking forward to Rachel and Daniels' story since I finished Find You In The Dark and I picked this one up right after cause I just had to know what happened of all that tension between them.
Rachel has loved Daniel for most of her life. He and Maggie were the two pillars of support in her life. When everything seemed to be going wrong she knew Danny and Maggie would always be there for her just as she would go out on a limb for them. I really liked Rachel. She was a sensible, sweet yet shy girl. You could see how badly she was pining after Daniel from so long and she so badly deserves her happy ending.
Daniel has always seen Rachel as his best friend. But lately his best friend brings out the feelings which no other girl has been able to make him feel. Daniel has seen how his mother cheated on his father and how it ended up destroying him and he doesn't want to mess it all up with Rachel. Daniel was a good guy. He lacked in showing his emotions to Rachel but you could see how much he cared for her. He was fierce and protective about his girls and that made him a really nice guy.
All throughout the novella you could see the push and pull between Rachel and Daniel. The book goes from dual point of views which was awesome. All that angst and tension comes to a satisfying end. When Daniel says "There is no Daniel Lowe without Rachel Bradfield" it made me fall just a little bit in love with him. This book doesn't have that much substance. Its a really short yet enjoyable read which can be read after Find You In The Dark.
