I totally fell in love with Jupiter Winds, so much so that I read it again before reading the sequel and loved it all over again, and Jupiter Storm was a MUST read for me! It picks off right where book 1 leaves off and DOES NOT LET YOU GO until the last page. I love the Alexander family, Mrs. March and even though I don't know him well, Jet Lien is also great :) Even the villains in this story are incredible to the plot and make the action non stop!! I thought after General Evangeline Yurkutz was killed in Winds that things would calm down a little.....so not happening that way.
Mom straightened and faced her. She wiped at her eyes with her sleeve. "When we get through this mission, I want you to know things are going to change."
"Mom, I'm okay."
"We're going to be real family again."
"I thought that's what we were now."
Corporal Lennox and the Schumans, I didn't like any of you but it was unfortunate what happened.
In this story, Mrs. March and the Alexanders must flee to a rendezvous to escape imminent war with Mazdaar reinforcements attempting to take over Jupiter. I WAS NOT expecting the story to go in this direction, but the writing is brilliant and more secrets are revealed. Trim and Traf are still with Rin and I'm truly amazed at the young woman she is becoming. She had such a small role in Winds, but in Storm she is required to be more courageous, she becomes the unofficial nurse whenever someone gets hurt, and she develops an odd talent communicating with the zorses. I'm VERY interested to see how THAT develops!
In Jupiter Storm, Grey is able to make sense of the five years she had to survive without her parents and she vows her allegiance to Mrs. March, who helped raise her and looked out for her all this time. Grey is also able to heal emotionally after all the torture she went through in Winds. Mrs. March puts everyone before her own safety and I was touched more than once at her strength in this story, especially at her age. She's just amazing from start to finish and one of my fave characters.
Dana Yurkutz also has an incredible journey in Storm and she has to ask herself many difficult questions in this one. Is she really like her mother or is she capable of being so much more? Which side will she choose, The Yiens or Mazdaar? And this story also reveals secrets to her that truly make her consider which side she really belongs to. I was rooting for her redemption in Storm and just when I felt certain the plot for her was doomed, I was pleasantly surprised :)
Also Jupiter itself is a VERY important entity in this sequel....more crazy winds, more extinct GIGANTIC predators, more drones and we get to witness some crazy flying maneuvers!! I've never seen a distant planet come to life as Jupiter does and I simply can't get enough of it :)
I cheered, I cried a little, and was simply amazed at how resilient the Alexander family is when they continue to fight for one another. EVERYTHING I hoped for in a worthy sequel (and more) was tended to in Jupiter Storm, starting from the amazing cover, and it's easiest one of the best books ever done! Highly recommended, written with LOTS of heart and faith, a family you're rooting for the entire time, and two brave sisters who find strength within themselves they never thought was possible.....loved it and want more!!
In this sequel, the Alexander family found themselves in a war that threatened the lives of their family and friends. Their courage and their faith were tested; trust in the people around them became an issue.
Before I read the Jupiter series, I couldn't imagine a futuristic, high-tech, Christian fiction. This one proves that the combination works. The saga should continue; so a third installment, please.
The lack of romance was such a plus for me because, let's face it: the number of any type of romance novels out there are prolific to be sure. Some ends from book one were tied up, so that was another plus for me. And, the language in Darlington's books are always clean, a fact that does not deter from her plots and descriptive language.
I am so anxious to read the third in this series- yes, C. J. Darlington's, I am clamoring for a trilogy - and I know it will be just as special as the first two.
So if you enjoy science fiction, give this series a try. If you have a YA in need of clean, non-werewof, non-vampire books, steer them to this series. Great work!
With layers of deception, sorting through loyalties and what really matters, the sisters find what their father said is true: "Nothing’s obvious during war.”
I loved returning to the world of Grey and Rin, wherever their travels took them. It was cool to see the sisters working together again like they did in the Preserve before they were separated. A fun read.
Looking forward to book 3!
