The pacing is a bit slower for this one, still breakneck by most standards but O'Connell seems to have hammered out all he needs to for the series to finally give it just a smidge of breathing room between each event. Quinn spends her time torn between reacting physically and reacting mentally to everything thrown her way, and despite the relatively shoehorned manner of their meeting in the previous book, Alucard makes the transition between his role in the Nate Temple books to this series seamlessly, his chemistry with Quinn realistic despite their limited engagement and already foreshadowing further bumps in the road later on.
The big twist (like an ogre trying to hide behind a wire fence, honestly man) takes the already pin-balling situation and adds a whole lot of torque to it. Everything Quinn thought of herself and her origins ended up being wrong, and she's not given a moment to process it before St.Louis level weather patterns of mild Armageddon with scattered Great Floods expected in the latter half of the day sweep over Boston. It plays out exactly as one would expect a sudden apocalyptic war to go, though of course not without being solved by way of a pressured deal being made that can only lead to sunshine and roses for Quinn later on, and if she keeps telling herself that maybe she'll even believe it.
All in all, this installment had the most bombshells packed into it thus far, even shedding a little extra light on the utter chaos that the Temple name is capable of wreaking all across existence whether intentional or otherwise. Pretty much everything is a smoldering heap of a fresh start, unwelcome as it is, and the big question is where Quinn will go next with it all. Looking forward to it as always.
Where the third book left off, Dark & Stormy continued with a great mix of characters from the other books and new ones. Quinn has become a strong character on her own, without the foundation of the rest of the Temple-Verse. I feel she rounds out three great characters that are leads, with their own story and own agenda (Nate in the Nate Temple Chronicles and Callie in the Feather & Fire series round out the other two characters). Rich in itself but more so with them all. I was very wary of the new series but now I feel that Quinn and her story gives an aspect that adds to the whole instead of take away.
As one of my favorite characters, I loved seeing Alucard develop in a stronger character and more assured without Nate. It was great to finally get the back story of the Huntress (especially when we got an Easter egg in Beast Master about her ties to the Fae). Yes, we got answers to many questions but they also lead to more questions, typical of these two writers, where reading the next book is always eye-opening.
Another book full of new characters and urban legends and gods, it was such a fun and exciting book to read. Writing very vivid that you see it in your mind’s eye as a movie playing on a big screen.
This book was full of "feels" and surprises, not always pleasant but very engaging for the readers. Love this series and I'm so glad that Shayne took the risk of bringing Cameron on board. One other note, even though the writing style is different, I can see the touches that Shayne clearly adds (his trademark snark). Can't wait for more.
Quinn is finally ready to enter the land of the Fae, accompanied by Alucard, to get some answers about her past. As always, there are tons of other things going on too. Will Quinn be able to save Boston from what’s heading that way? Will she get all of the answers she has been looking for all this time? Where will she go from here?
I love the fast pace of the authors’ books, and am glad to see it continuing as the twists and turns don’t stop. The characters will draw the reader in and provide a totally awesome read! The humor is unparalleled! Prepare yourself for laughter and enjoy one of the very best series you’ll find! Wonderful job, gentlemen!

Our intrepid heroine is off to the land of the Fae and
she meets some very familiar figures while there.
She also discovers who and what she really is. Quinn is about to meet her
wild side, and what a wild side it is!
Usual fast paced action, quick wit and sassy banter - will not disappoint
anyone who follows the Templeverse.
Each story is better than the last!
The twist on who betrays Quinn is a cracker
Another great book
Fortunately Shayne writes fast.
While a good story in its own right, this series is adding more depth into the shared world of the Templeverse.
If you're a fan of Nate and Callie, you need to give this series a try.
Boy was I wrong. Certain characters from childhood stories appear in this one (don't want to spoil it) and once they appeared I couldn't get the buzz out of my head.
A betrayal and reunion as well as the usual chaos!!!!
