Beneath Erynn’s petite build, curly red hair, and startling blue eyes, lies a deeply hidden secret.If the truth about her were revealed, her life would be in danger. Her dream to be a fighter pilot would tailspin,crash, and burst into flames.
Jaer’s wise brown eyes reflect his smoldering strength. An enigma, charismatic and moody, he is a physically powerful warrior who defends his world. A warrior afraid to love because of mistakes in his past.
When the presence of a marauding alien society is discovered on their planets, a struggle of life and death begins. Both Erynn and Jaer’s worlds face annihilation.
A mysterious force plunges Erynn into Jaer’s cold, dangerous, and beautiful world with its magical essence and living consciousness. Both the alien enemy and this strange inexplicable power purse Erynn. (Goodreads)
Storm of Arranon is well written, exciting, fast-paced, action filled, and a gentle love story with intriguing characters. A great story, told at a perfect pace for young adults.
The characters had interesting powers, Eyrnn was clearly an empath but the author wrote about it in a way that described it in pictures and she never needed to tell us she was an empath. Her connection to animals didn’t happen overnight so seemed a natural addition to her powers. As for her coming into her own with managing the weather to help get out of a bad situation, that also, had a nice build up.
Eyrnn and Jaer had just the right amount of self doubt about themselves, while continuing with their missions and getting to know each other.
The world building is amazing, filled with details of the planet, animals and the special connection between the planet and the characters.
Jaer and Sean are both strong, yet gentle and I can’t wait to find out more about there lives and training. They both seem to be able to calm down and help keep people focused in a non-invasive way.
I highly recommend this book and am looking forward to the next book in this series.
