Storm by Evan Angler
? ? ?
Cooper, a new boy in the story with a perfect academic score, is hurt because it has become clear to him that General Lamson made up his recent achievement award so that he could speak in secret to his parents, who are programmers at the weather mill. The weather mill ensures that the continent receives enough rain to produce food and combats the permadrought. Logan is locked up in Archeron, Erin, who now hangs with the Dust, is ill with the plague. Lily is selected to serve Chancellor Cylis in an important mission to ensure that it does rain, because it has become clear that General Lamson is trying to prevent that. In a race to the finish we find Logan sent off by his sister to ensure there is rain so that the markless don’t die of starvation, Erin and friends find the inventor of the nanovirus responsible for the plague she shouldn’t have because she’s been vaccinated to see if there is a cure.

This is a good solid read, and no doubt my son will give this 4 or 4.5 stars. To get 5 stars it has to have far more rip roaring action, like Andrew Klavan’s series that starts with “The Last Thing I Remember” or almost anything by Anthony Horiwitz. He is 13, after all.

Summary: At the age of 13 everybody in the American Union gets marked. The mark is a series of numbers tattooed onto the forearm that lets people buy things, get into buildings, go to school, and basically be a citizen and have rights. However anybody that refuses the mark just…disappears. Logan Langly refused the mark at the last minute and he is on the run with a group called the Dust. Also the weather has been acting weird lately. There has been almost no rain which is really starting to affect the Markless who depend on farming to live. Meanwhile there is an epidemic starting to break out amongst the Marked. While most of the Markless are trying to fight off the government the Dust is looking for a cure to the epidemic. However they are looking in all the wrong places and they aren’t sure who to trust, and if they don’t succeed it could mean the death of millions.

Review: Storm was a very good book. It was full of unexpected twists and surprises. I was really surprised at what ended up happening. I was also surprised at what the author chose to write, because I was expecting the book to go a completely different way. Despite all of these twists and turns it was an excellent book. This book was a little bit religious at times which I also liked. I like how the author was able to fit religion into a great action book. I would recommend this book to anybody who likes books with lots of surprises and adventure. Overall it was a great book and I think that more people should read it. ( )

The last book in the series made us wonder about Erin's loyalty plus her illness really threw a wrench in things. Lily is gone and Eddie has been captured. That's about where we begin in Storm. If you haven't read the two previous books, you could probably pick this one up and not be very lost because of how the back story is woven throughout. This is really a nice addition for those like me who have been away from the series for a bit.

As the story unfolds, we discover one surprise after another - some predictable and some not. What will Logan do about Lily? Has he written her off? And then there's Eddie... Will he survive another period with the helmet? Is Erin really on board or is she still working with DOME? And will they find the doctor in time enough to save Erin? And what about the drought? Why isn't it ending?

One page turning event after another will keep the reader entertained and guessing until the end and then even beyond as the series continues with "SPARK". Full of suspense and excitement, this series will entertain both young adults and adults alike. Personally I have really enjoyed the series so far and cannot wait to get my hands on the next book. I must see what happens with Logan and... oops - can't share any spoilers. You'll just have to read this for yourself!!!

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley courtesy of Thomas Nelson. I was not required to write a positive review, but instead, one that gives my honest opinion. ( )

That cover is freaking gorgeous. Just had to point that out. This book was such an awesome, fast-paced read. I seriously adore Evan Angler’s writing style. It is divided up into chapters like most of the books, but each chapter is divided up into sections with a number. This is only one of the reasons why this book and the first two books of the Swipe series stands out from the other ya dystopian books. Another thing is that the author made himself as a character in Storm and made his series part of the story. I was really surprised and I thought it was really cool because I’ve never read a book that had something like that.

This is a dystopian world where everyone is supposed to be Marked. The citizens goes through a process, and they receive this mark on their wrist that keeps track of their identity, enables them to attend school, etc.. There are those who are Markless; they choose to avoid and oppose being marked. Some of these Markless, marginalized people are The Dust. They’re kids/teenagers who strongly disagrees with being Marked.

At the beginning of Storm, we are re-capped with the characters which I appreciated because I kind of forgot who were the characters and what their personalities were like. The story switched off to many different points of view just like the other books, but it wasn’t confusing. It was probably switched 5 times but it is written in 3rd person point of view except when the author spoke. I was a bit sad that the book focused more on the villains than the main characters. I really love the Dust, which are a bunch of Markless kids that formed a group to rebel against Chancellor Cylis, but in this book, the spotlight wasn’t really on them.

The only thing I didn’t like was it wasn’t really as action packed as the first two books. Storm had a lot of dialogue scenes instead of the characters going on a quest like they did in Sneak. There were a few twists though especially with one of the characters which I enjoyed. It was full of details and just not enough action. That’s what kept me from rating it a four.

What I really loved about this book, besides the writing style, is that there was hardly any romance. YES! Finally! A book that didn’t focus on romance! The only romance part I guess is when the MC, Logan, was blushing. That was it. So if you’re looking for a dystopian read that doesn’t have that much romance in it, then I would highly recommend you reading this book. If you’re up for a new read, then I recommend this series to you. I would say that this series isn’t “one of those dystopians”. It’s a fantastic and refreshing read. ( )

I’m Hooked!

Ok, so I am so hooked on this series I cannot wait for the next one. Somehow, I thought that it was a trilogy and Storm would wrap it all up, but instead Angler ramped up the story and increased the suspense. Absolutely do not read this book out of order, you must read Swipe and Sneak first. While this book is based on Christian themes, there is absolutely no preaching because it is set so far in the future that religion has been deemed divisive and thus not allowed. Though the reading level of this book is 8-11 year olds, it is definitely geared more toward the understanding of teens. Most 8-10 year olds would not understand the under currents in the themes that run through the books. I recommend this to all YA readers looking for exciting books that portray a struggle of good against evil, but many older readers will enjoy them, too. ( )
