Arora is not a typical Shifterai (a natural shapeshifter), because instead of shapeshifting talents she posses magic. She hoped that mages would help her with her powers but they covet her powers, so that she has to flee her homeland. Together with her twin sisters she lands on the island of Nightfall after a shipwreck.
Rydan dreaded the prophecy for a long time and especially now when he encounters Arora, who he believes to be his twin destined bride. Arora seems to see beneath his mysterious and sometimes prickly exterior, will she be able open his heart?
A small warning should be issued, because THE STORM and the previous book of the Sons of the Destiny series, THE CAT share a parallel time frame. I was intrigued by the idea and I have to say, that Ms. Johnson did a really good job with both books.
Since I have read the first book of the series, I was looking forward to read Rydan’s story, because he is one of the most fascinating characters in the series. You can’t help yourself but fall in love with him, if you like your heroes not so perfect. Arora is the perfect heroine for him because she is the exact counterpoint of him and completes him perfectly.
I am so looking forward to see how the series continues!
I highly recommend that you read this series in the correct order, because all the books are strongly connected with each other, but the series is soooo much fun!
THIS IS NOT AN ENDORSEMENT OF THIS BOOK. THIS IS AN OBJECTIVE UNBIASED REVIEW
