This story picks up right where the first left off with characters doing their best to survive in a situation where survival is questionable at best. The interactions between the main characters and those who are introduced in the second book bring even more life and interest to the story. Vannetta develops diverse scenarios and characters to add multiple levels of intrigue to her story, all of which kept me highly engaged as a reader.
Fans of great fiction should enjoy Raging Storm, especially those with any interest in the dystopian genre. Reading this series in order is important to follow the story line. The author left a perfect set-up for the next installment, Light of Dawn, due to be released later this year. She also has written a prequel, available in the form of a free ebook novella, Overshadowed.
About the Book:
In the Darkness, Anarchy Awakens
When a massive solar flare wiped out all modern technology across the globe, the small town of Abney, Texas, was thrown into chaos. Shelby Sparks and her teenage son, Carter, have found refuge, but Shelby knows she can’t simply remain hidden forever. Carter is a type 1 diabetic in need of insulin—and Shelby will risk her life traveling to Austin to make sure he gets it.
Shelby’s best friend and high school sweetheart, Max Berkman, won’t even consider letting her make the perilous journey alone. Together, they manage to get to the capital—only to discover that while things are desperate in Abney, Austin has turned into an urban nightmare on the brink of anarchy.
Shelby and Max’s search for medical supplies will lead them into terrifying territory, where the only thing more uncertain than finding what they need is the hope of making it out of the city alive.
