A book you will not want to put down!, June 3, 2016
By Becca Moree
This review is from: A Storm Within (Eternal Bonds Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
When I first heard about A Storm Within I was pretty well hooked. The premise for this book is so unique and fun! I’m not normally big on teen books, not sure why…I guess it’s just not my thing. However, I knew I was going to be reading this one! While the characters constantly switching attitudes and repeated cheating drove me mad…it was accurate. It was the life of a teen. It was real.
These characters are developed so beautifully that after only a few chapters I felt like I knew them. I may not exactly like them…I mean come on who really likes a cheater? but I knew who they were, I knew what they wanted, I even knew what their fears were. Put simply: they are good characters. I ADORE a book that can drag me in so deep that I have such strong feelings and reactions to the characters! Trust me when I say that C. Tuttle pulled that off and more. I spent the majority of this book screaming at my kindle trying to figure out what in the world these characters were thinking! The relationship between Brie and Kayla is breath-taking….and annoying as crap! If you two love each other so much…well stop being douches to one another dang it!! It’s not that hard I promise!
(See what I mean about getting emotional over the characters! I felt like I was back in high school standing between two of my friends that were constantly making bad choices when it came to their relationship.)
Okay..moving on from my love-hate relationship with the characters. All you need to know is that they are extremely well developed, have wonderfully individual voices that let you know who each one is and what their personalities are…basically these characters are REAL! They come across as someone you may have gone to school with and just didn’t know.
The story line is epic! What these teens go through is amazing and hard to explain without ruining all of the wonderful surprises. I will warn you, this isn’t a book that gives it all away in the beginning. You spend most of the book wondering what in the world is going on, why things are happening and who is responsible. The end is one hell of a cliff hanger that had me wanting to yell and scream and demand that I know what is going on right this instant! But it is worth it. Being left wondering is the sweetest kind of torture imaginable!
A Storm Within has it all: romance, action, humor, mystery and even a little bit of horror at times. The balance is perfect. The plot flow is smooth and addicting. The characters are realistic and relatable. What more do you need to know?
But it! Buy it right NOW!! You won’t regret it!
Now I just have to sit here and wait oh so patiently (haha yeah nope not at all) for the next book in the series so that I can find out what in the world happens next!
