New York Times and USA Today bestselling author S.E. Smith presents another adventure- and suspense-filled story to transport listeners out of this world. Star Strauss has always been a fighter. From the time she was born prematurely to her life on the road as a circus performer, she has never let her small stature keep her from achieving her dreams. Her love of being up high and flying free has helped her overcome the challenges she faces when she is on the ground. But her life changes when she finds herself on a distant world where every creature seems to tower over her. Jazin Ja Kel Coradon is the third son of the ruling House of Kassis. He is known not only for his skills as a fierce warrior but also for his knowledge of communication, security, and weapons systems. This knowledge has increased the effectiveness of the Kassis defenses protecting their world from attack from a new group of rebels who threaten their very existence. He will fight until his last breath to protect his people. His life changes when he meets a tiny creature who is unlike anything he has ever seen. She is petite, delicate, and beautiful-and the strongest, most stubborn female he has ever met. She refuses to do what he tells her, she defies him at every turn, and she doesn't seem to understand that all he wants to do is protect her. If he could just get her to stay in the safe bubble he has created for her, his life would be so much simpler! Star had enough of people back home trying to put her in a glass box. But when the man she loves is kidnapped, she will do what she does best: use her skills as a performer to rescue him from the men determined to bring down the Kassis defense system. Sometimes being small has its advantages. The enemy never expects a pint-size female to have the strength of a warrior.… (mais)

Book 1, River's Run was about 8 book releases earlier, but book 2 is finally here and going straight into my favorites collection.

During River's Run, we meet River, Star and Jo and the three Lords of Kassis, four if you include their father. Star's Storm expands the story and reveals the strong personalities of Star and Jazin that were hinted at in book 1. Star is definitely nobody's doormat, more of an irresistible force. Jazin's the immovable object until he realizes that he has to change or risk losing Star. The trials they undergo deepen their relationship and move the story along very quickly. I reached the end and couldn't believe I had finished the story, I was so eager to keep reading more.

I would like to see some of the native women step up as strong personalities in future books. Unlike some of S.E.'s female characters in her other universes, we really haven't seen much of the females of Kassis. Surely the interesting men had equally vibrant women somewhere in their lives.

As with all of S.E.'s books, I'm also ready for stories about many of the secondary characters - Madas & Gril, Ristéard Roald & Ricki. Jarmen, Ajaska, Dakar and Armet also deserve happy endings. Jo and Manota's story is next in this universe and I can hardly wait. Although I think some characters from some of S.E.'s other universes are intending to have their stories released first.
