I really enjoyed the whole story line and the characters are all very well written. Jake and Addie’s romance was set at a nice pace and the villain was really evil. I liked how Addie was made to feel so welcomed by the Wilcox clan and learn how to deal with her gift. The only downside to the whole book is the CLIFFHANGER!!! I know I sound like a broken record but I don’t like cliffhangers and this one is a whooper. Christine Pope writes such entertaining, engaging stories I can’t help but continue to read them. Thankfully we have then next one due in June so not a long wait. I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
One morning when Adara and her mother are getting ready to start their day a man pops in. Agent Lenz wants to enter Adara into a program for people like her with magical powers. Adara wants no part of this man and right in the middle of her trying to explain to Agent Lenz that she is not going anywhere with him another man Jake Wilcox who is also looking for Adara shows up. Adara opens the door to the best looking man she has ever laid eyes on.
When Adara opened the door Jake quickly accessed the situation around him. He could see right away that something was not quite right as Adara looked as if she did not want to go with the man who had a hold of her arm and trying to force her out the door. This man claims to be an agent working for the government.
Well somewhere right here is where Adara loses it and the weather turns nasty. Her mother comes out to help Adara and things turn bad and everything is in chaos. Afterwards Adara finds herself on the run with this handsome man Jake hiding out from Agent Lenz.
After rescuing Adara from the agent Jake takes her back to his home to live with his family among their coven. The coven and Jake’s family will help protect Adara while helping her control her powers. While Adara is staying with Jake and the coven she learns a lot about whom and what she is.
Agent Lenz is a very determined man and will not give up until he finds her. He is relentless in his search for Adara and Jake. Agent Lenz has a lot of people working with him in his search for Jake and Adara.
Storm Born started out with a bang and never let up. Once I picked it up I couldn’t lay it down again until I had read the last page. Storm Born started out with action that kept the pages turning. As I have mentioned there was plenty of action, danger and suspense. Storm Born is a great introduction into a whole new world of witches and magic. The story and the world building were fantastic as well as the characters. The words just flew off the pages. Christine made you feel as if you knew the characters as if you had been best friends forever. You wanted to laugh when they did and cry when they did.
Storm Born drew me in so deeply that lost the world around me and I could see the storms brewing over head. I could see the clouds as they started to gather and change colors it was awesomely amazing. I can’t wait to see what the next book in The Witches of Wheeler Park has in store for us.
I would like to recommend Storm Born to all fans of witches, magic, romance and the paranormal world. One click your copy today to begin this amazing story.
The departure from the other series is that the main character in this novel, Addie Grant, does not know in the beginning that she is a witch. Jake Wilcox (fans of the previous series know that the Wilcox family is a powerful witch clan) has made it his mission to find “lost” witches - those born outside of the witch clans, who might not understand what their special powers are. Jake’s search brings him to Addie, whose connection to sudden storms has caused her and her mother to constantly relocate. Jake arrives just as another hunter - this one a government agent looking to exploit those with special powers - finds Addie. An altercation puts Addie and Jake on the run. They eventually make their way back to Wilcox territory, where there are some surprises about Addie’s past.
I really enjoyed this introduction to a new group of witches. I liked Addie and Jake as characters and the slow build in their relationship. I was a little disappointed in the ending; you expect the bad guy to eventually show up for a final confrontation, but after all the checks the Wilcox clan put in place, I would have liked to know how he got through them. Also, this ends in a cliffhanger. I feel like it kind of came out of nowhere. I enjoyed the book enough that I would still have wanted to continue the series without a cliffhanger ending. I look forward to reading the next one.
