This is not just your typical rock star romance. This novel showcases the intricacies of familial relationships, the heartbreak caused by lost love, and the life-changing consequences of lies and deception.
The writing is well done. The characters are empathetic, complex and interesting. And the plot is told from differing perspectives, in a past/present style, that gives depth, understanding, and a smooth flow to the storyline.
This is the first book in the NightHawk Series, and I look forward to reading book #2, Rhythm of Deceit, to find out what happens next.
Thank you to Rachael Richey, the author, for providing me with a copy of this story in exchange for an honest review.
I have to say I wasn't to sure after reading the description whether it would be my kind of book but I am so glad I decided to give it a go as I thoroughly enjoyed it.
The story flicks between 2005 which is the present time and ten years earlier in the past. The story mainly focuses on Abi (Abigail) and to certain events in her past that have led her to where she is in the present.
I really liked Abi as due to her circumstances she has had to be strong. In her younger days she certainly is your typical teen. Her best friend Judy is also a really great character and I don't think anyone could ask for a better best friend than her.
After the death of Abi's mum, certain things come to light which turns her whole world upside down.
Storm Rising I found to be a strong and steady read that, even though I kind of guessed which way the story was heading, I very much enjoyed the ride that the author took me on. There is actually going to be a sequel to this book which is due out this month and I for one will certainly be looking forward to it.
I think younger adults will certainly be able to relate to the main characters especially when they were younger as well as bring back memories for adults that are slightly older to what it felt like to be that age again. As a parent myself and having a daughter similar age to Abi when she was younger, parts of the story are certainly very thought provoking.
Many thanks to the author for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I enjoyed reading this novel for review, and found Richey’s writing to flow very well even with all of the flashbacks. Recently I’ve read some novels with constant back and forth between present and past and sometimes it’s just too much, but not this novel. I could certain relate to Storm Rising, not because of the plot and subject matter, but unfortunately because of the unkind, uncaring mother (I had one too!). This novel embraces young love, and demonstrates the unwillingness to give up on love, no matter how much time has passed. Actually this novel reminds me of one of my all-time favorite movies, but I can’t say which one because if you have seen it, then I will have spoiled the plot! Rachael Richey demonstrates a flair for romance and is definitely worth checking out, if you haven’t already. Hopefully in the near future I will have the opportunity to read the next novel in this series to find out more about Abi and Gideon!
*I received a copy of this novel from the author in exchange for an honest review.
When Abigail returns home for her estranged mother’s funeral, she finds a pile of secrets in her childhood home. But rather than simply follow a breadcrumb trail towards the past, the past also collides into her, in the lithe form of that grunge frontman, but also in the form of something far more special.
What unfolds is several love stories all couched in a darker mystery. The reader is led on a trail that speaks to both the teenager left in us, and the sophistication of a modern Jane Austen. It’s a balance the author has done particularly well, preventing the novel from becoming YA, while still capturing the intensity of youth, in lovely prose.
Lost love, identity, the pursuit of truth, and just an occasional dusting of fairy tale keep the reader engaged throughout in this well written entry to the NightHawk series. I’ve already started reading the second book in the series- Rhythm of Deceit!
