A single night can change your life… for the worst.
It’s been a century since the last Centennial Storm, the calamitous phenomenon that covers the world in disasters– tornadoes, hurricanes, blizzards, tsunamis, and dust storms– caused not by nature, but by alien creatures from another realm. The Stormkind.
Ava Reid tries not to think about that night, when she was caught in a hurricane and face to face with one of the Stormkind, the man with a dagger, and the agony she felt when he stabbed her with a crystal blade. Yet as she and the rest of Florida’s citizens begin to rebuild their lives, Ava can’t help but notice strange things happening around her. Things she seems to be causing. The gusts of wind and sudden floods that attract the attentions of a mysterious stranger leaving her clues, and the deadlier men following her.
It isn’t long before Ava is swept up into a wild conspiracy, led by a secret society that knows the truth about the Stormkind– and what their enemies have planned for the world she loves. If she wishes to protect her friends and her family, Ava must harness her strange new abilities and become part of the Stormkind society. Because if she loses control, there will be no force strong enough to stop her…
Amy Braun brings us another exciting urban fantasy novel. Storm Born is about Ava, a girl with mysterious powers who is being hunted by both good and bad. She is shocked to discover that she may be causing the weird things that have been happening around her. She must protect her family and decide where her loyalties lie. There is also a boy, because there is always a boy, and, therefore there is a romantic component to the story.
Braun writes some pretty spectacular urban fantasies with lots of suspense and enough description to pull you in. Storm Born is geared more toward the YA set, but as an adult, I still enjoyed it and I think you will, too!
