I am a fan of this series. It has many elements that make it complex and well written. This story is told through the psychopath of Evan. It was extremely disturbing to be put in his mindset. It gave me the chills and nightmares. I loved it. It was disturbing and completely crazy. Evan is a great main character because of how twisted his mind is. I feel it gives you a glimpse of a mind of a serial killer. My favorite part was the very end. I was clapping and hollering at work while listening. I think my coworkers might think I am crazy. An element of the book is astrology. I thought that was a unique twist and added a more developed plot. I would recommend this series to my thriller loving friends who aren't afraid of some gruesome realities.
My audio experience was fantastic. The narrator added such passion behind each word that I was blown away. I quickly became entranced with his voice and the emotions behind it. I was pleasantly surprised how well he did. I plan on following this narrators career because it is going to be great. I will listen to him again.
The author has hit the target with this novel. Her characters are full dimension and some are full of mischief, fueling the plot from beginning to end. The author handles well the unfolding story as it moves from setting to setting. And tension remains tight between the protagonist and the villain throughout the novel.
I like how Klass foreshadows portions of her story through the use of surrounding natural elements. Weaving environment with plot requires an author’s special touch, and Klass executes with precision. In doing so, her characters are challenged in additional ways which make her book even more exciting for the reader.
In addition I found the touches of dark humor, and the protagonist’s romantic involvement to be an extra accent of spice, adding balance to the story. However, be prepared for a suspense thriller soaked with the horrors of the antagonist’s twisted behaviors. Yes, your spine will know what I mean!
For me, The Calm Before the Storm, is Elle Klass’s best work yet! Five stars!
I'm not going to say too much more about the story because if I do, I'll start spoiling the story. Know this, you have to have a strong stomach to read this novel, but it is worth reading.
I did find the pacing of the story moved too fast in a number of places for me. I listened to this on audio, so if I was distracted for a second, I would have to rewind a bit to see when we shifted scenes in the story. I also found that in some chapters the narrator read too quickly adding to the rushed pace. He may have done so to follow the fast, action-packed flow of the story, but I did have to turn the speed down twice on my Audible app because I wasn't taking in the story as well as I should because of how quickly he spoke.
Overall it is an amazing, emotionally disturbing, sad story that you should definitely read if you've read the first book.
