“I totally loved this book. Keta Diablo really outdid herself. This is a historical, paranormal and romance. It is very well written and I’m certain will please a very wide reading audience.” I give this book 5 stars.” Book Eternity Reviews

”I absolutely loved this story. It paints a rich and vivid picture of the Dog Soldiers and their way of life, fitting this history into the story in such a way you learn a lot about the Dog Soldiers without being lectured. I really liked how Diablo doesn't try to turn the Cheyenne into 'noble savages' as sometimes happens in romance, but how she writes them with both their good and bad sides, making them more real and recognizable this way.” 5 Stars
“A fantastic book. The author did a lot of research into the history and the culture of the Dog Soldiers. The book is full of action, romance, and I felt the character's emotions throughout the story. The way time travel was incorporated in the story was believable and worked very well with the storyline.A page-turner I could not put it down.” FIVE STARS Books R Us

”Through the lives of these three people, Diablo spins a vivid account of how grueling and sometimes brutal the life of a Dog Soldier could be. I loved how she wove the rituals and beliefs of the Cheyenne people throughout the tale as if you were there seeing it first hand. This is a historical romance sure to magically sweep you back in time. A must read!” Paranormal Romance Reviews – 5 Stars!

”An understanding of the culture of these wonderful people who fought to preserve their life style will be found in the pages of Where the Rain is Made. Keta Diablo takes us into the legends and lore of a people who lost so much more than lives long ago along the Platte River. Where the Rain is Made is a tale that is rich in history, emotions and love. Kudos to Ms. Diablo for penning such an impassioned story”. E-Cata Romance – 4.5 Stars”

”Diablo’s Where The Rain Is Made is a must-read for anyone interested in native history and anyone looking for a nice, deep romance that never gets too heavy despite some intense moments of fighting for survival. I rarely enjoy time travels but this one is thoroughly believable. My recommended list. I will be looking for other books by this author.” Classical Romance Reviews – 4.5 Stars

”What a wonderfully written historical. The amazing attention to detail really made the story Pop! Filled with heart stopping characters, a riveting plot and a love that spans time, this 1 will remain on my shelf for years to come and revisited often.” Seriously Reviewed – 9 Stars

Book Reviews - M Vander
"Keta Diablo has you so swept up in all of the drama, the romance, the action and the suspense that you forget the fact that you aren't reading a book set in present day. Her descriptions of the Cheyenne lifestyle and their history was so engrossing that it was very easy to get lost in that time. I could go on and on, but, what really kept me reading to the point that I had a hard time putting the book down, was the love story between Meko and Ceska." Five Stars

    Romantic, Magical, Timeless!

    Can true love triumph over the brutalities of the past, the whims of the gods, and a desperate leap through time? Where the Rain is Made by Keta Diablo is a tender love story in a land and time full of brutality, blood and slaughter.

    Ethan Gray, a contemporary man, is a time traveler of Cheyenne descent. He has been gifted by the spirits with the ability to travel through time to aid his people in times of crisis. This time, he finds himself in the mid-nineteenth century, the leader of the bravest, most fierce of the Cheyenne warriors, the Dog Soldiers, leading a raid on a white settlement that will change the course of his life forever.

    Francesca Du Vall and her brother Marsh are the only survivors of that raid, and in spite of their efforts and bravery, are taken captive by the Cheyenne. When Cesca and Meko (Ethan) lock eyes for the first time their souls collide with an internal need that even the barriers of war and race cannot keep them apart. The passion was there, but can something so beautiful survive the hate and bitterness all around them? What of the Spirit Council? Meko has been warned not to get involved with anyone from the past, that in a vision, Cesca could be his doom. One he returns to the present, he can never go back.
    Keta Diablo had me mesmerized with her beautifully written tale, her ability to wrap the world she has created around me, was astounding! Filled with moments of passion as well as horrific scenes of battle, this wonderful love story will have you wishing for the world to go away and leave these two alone!

    Ms. Diablo’s characters are well-defined, often humorous in their set ways, sometimes fearsome, but always real and HUMAN. Not once did I wish for the pace to change or for a different outcome! I was there, in each scene, I could smell the air, feel the heat, hear the sounds of battle. If an author can put you on the edge of seat, talking to yourself, and doing a fist pump, or two, they have shared their creative gift well! Where the Rain is Made is the perfect romance embedded in American history with only the slightest touch of the paranormal! Kind of like that “secret ingredient” that makes Mom’s cookies the sweetest and the best!
