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. And the last chapter gives us a few plot twists (one of which I inadvertently spoiled myself for by reading episode descriptions on the website) that are effective cliffhangers for the rest of the series.
Basically, if you like soaps and all that come with them (secrets, forbidden love, love triangles, tragedy, dysfunctional families), you'll like this book. And like me, you'll probably want to read the rest of the series (which I have already started).
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.
