Storm and Stone (Review)
When I first realized that my favorite author had written another book. I was like
And then I was like
After a near fatal fangirl attack, I immediately ran out and got a hold of Storm and the Stone.
Where to start, where to start… Let’s start with the wonderful and enigmatic Kieran Storm. For all those lady fans of BBC’s Sherlock Holmes, these are the books for you! Kieran is Sherlock personified, with his ability of deduction and hyper intelligence, meets James Bond! That’s right! Kieran Storm is a super sly spy on top of his super amazing Sherlock-like-ness. Can it get any better?? I would have loved the book just for that reason, but then he falls in love with a kick butt heroine Raven Stone. So yes! It can get better!
Raven is no damsel in distress. Not this girl. No, she is an independent, strong, courageous, intelligent, and will not put up with your crap. Which causes some problems for Kieran because, being a spy investigating her boarding school, he’s been lying about pretty much everything. Why Kieran is investigating her boarding school, you may ask. Kieran and his partner Joe are investigating the disappearances of children in the school, being the children of powerful people, the government took notice. Following the disappearances, some children started returning… completely brainwashed into snobbish sociopaths.
This book is chock full of action, adventure, and smoking hot kisses. No joke, in one scene, right before the intelligent Kieran and talented Raven preform a dance together, he plants an unexpected but romantic kiss on her, their first kiss. When I read this I was like
Finally, somebody wrote the perfect kiss scene! Bravo! Bravo!
Then the dance scene happened and I just died from happiness
THIS IS A MUST READ!! In the first 5 pages it became one of my favourite books ever!! Awesome from the character development, to the perfect storyline. Recommended for everybody! This book is simply beautiful. Hope I didn't spoil to much ;p
