I had first heard about this series of books via Christopher Rice, who is apparently writing an episode for Season 2 (which I am super-excited about). When I heard it was a soap opera in book form, I was definitely intrigued.

I bought the first episode, and by halfway through it, I knew I'd need to get the rest of the series, so I did. It is just like all the best soap operas that I've watched. And I've watched a fair number of them, from primetime (like Dallas, Falcon Crest, Knot's Landing, Dynasty, etc.) to daytime (All My Children and One Life to Live were my favorites, when they were still on *shakes fist at network runners*).

This book is basically an introduction to all the families in Storm, Texas. There are a lot of families to keep track of, which might be a turnoff for some readers. I definitely need a couple more episodes to really know who is who, but that's nothing new for someone who watches soaps. Or frankly, Game of Thrones. There are helpful family trees available on the Rising Storm website, though it's not so helpful if you're someplace without wi-fi. But still.

Being that it was an introduction, I wasn't expecting a whole lot. But it exceeded my expectations quite a bit. The drama starts right off the bat with two friends-slash-lovers being awkward with each other, a car accident, and a death of one of those friends. If that isn't a kickstart to the action, I don't know what is.

The rest of the episode deals with the funeral of the kid who died and each family's reaction to it, along with introducing all the problems that each family is having before the death even takes place. Considering it was right around 100 pages, it's amazing that there was so much info given, yet it didn't feel like it was REALLY exposition-y.

Wow!! Just Wow!! This book was an amazing start to a series I just know I’m going to love!!! Several authors are working together to bring us this series of short stories and some very interesting characters.

Move over Dallas, Dynasty, Revenge, Brothers and Sister, and Scandal etc. because Storm, Texas is the place to be. So far there has been tragedy, adultery, domestic abuse, teen love, adult love, a sexy Sheriff, a Senator with questionable ethics and so much much more and that’s just the first episode. If you love a good nighttime soap opera, then start this series.

I'm just not sure yet if this story is going to be a hit or miss for me.It's a interesting concept and I like the authors that are combining their talents to create this novel but I'm still on the fence. So far the storyline is good and it looks to be promising ,I just hope now that the character's have been introduced that the story will just get going and have some great twists and turns and romantic heat between everyone in this town. Fingers crossed this concept and the upcoming reads will be worthwhile. So far so good. Not great yet but here's to hoping. : )

Without a doubt 5 Stars! I didn't want to put it down. This was such a great beginning to this series and I can't wait for more. The characters are so well written and there are so many secrets. Some people you just don't like from the beginning and know that they are going to bring nothing but trouble and then there are others that you are cheering for and hoping they get a happily ever after.

Definitely recommend.

Through superior writing and plotting we get a sense of Storm and the tangled relationships that exist in this small Texas town. The central characters are believable, the story superb, and the plot lines beautifully drawn. This opens the door to a number of stories that will enthrall us as did this beginning to the many sagas, lies, and secrets that exist in Storm. Anxiously awaiting the next episode.

TEMPEST RISING is the first episode in Season 1 of the incredible Rising Storm Series. The series is to be read like an ongoing drama, with each episode releasing on a weekly basis. In fact, it's like a TV series, with Season 2 coming next year! Certainly something new, and I can't wait to see how it all turns out.

In TEMPEST RISING, author Julie Kenner sets the setting for the entire season, introducing the cast of characters and putting into play the event that would serve as the catalyst for the conflicts that would play out. Here, Ginny Moreno is going back home to Storm, Texas for the summer, with her best friend, Jacob Salt. Unfortunately, tragedy struck, and that one act will unravel secrets and affect everyone in the town in a way no one could've imagined...

I think the author did a good job introducing the town and the characters, as well as setting up the conflicts that would be played out later on in the series. And while nothing's really resolved, the episode ends on a feel-good note for some of the characters, even if some readers may not agree with their actions.

The characters are flawed and realistically human, their motivations and actions logical. That said, there are, I think, too many characters introduced in this short length, with multiple points of view. I'm not sure if the author needed to feature all of them at this point, but the result is that I had to really note each character as well as their intertwining relationships with other people in the town. It would help if there's a handy list of characters at the start or at the end that readers could refer to. Or a family tree? Make that family trees.
