Stormfront by K.R. Conway
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Wow – these books are such a treat to read! It’s really refreshing to dive into a book that has a great blend of romance, sizzle, action, and intrigue. I can’t recommend these books (and this author) enough. Even if you’re not a fan of paranormal romance, there’s enough mystery and plot to entertain a wide audience.
To start, you should read these books in order. This installment begins where the previous one left off with minimal recap. Eila, Raef, MJ, Ana, and Kian are still on a mission to unlock the secrets of Elizabeth’s past all while trying to hold on to their present. The characters in this book continue to be my favorite part. They are so relatable, entertaining, and “real” that you’re instantly drawn in and find yourself desperate to know what happens next to this crew. Yes, there is YA drama and romance, but it was done in such a way that it would appeal to any age reader out there. There are silly scenes where Eila and Ana just get to be teens and then there are the tougher, more grown-up situations where they are forced to make tough decisions.
The overall plot revolved around Eila’s quest to become more self-sufficient with her powers. This quest hinged on the need to unlock the diary that they all hope contains the answers they’re looking for. Of course, nothing ever goes as planned so there are a lot of detours along the way. We see the growth of Eila and Raef’s relationship, Raef and Kian struggling to balance what they are with what they’d like to be, and the further development of Kian and Ana’s relationship. MJ shouldn’t be forgotten either, since he’s the source of a lot of entertainment (and protection) along the way.
From the beginning of the book to the end, I was in love with this book. There were no slow parts or lulls in the action, romance, or mystery. At every turn, this book kept me glued to the page and 100% addicted. The writing style was easy and engaging, which made it easy to tear through the book at warp speed. If you’re looking for a wonderfully creative and unique read, look no further than the Undertow series.
