Not long ago, Eila Walker nearly lost her life when a quest for the truth about her powerful grandmother turned into a death sentence. Now, five weeks later, Eila is dealing with the fall-out of that horrific night, including a guilt-ridden bodyguard who nearly killed her.
Haunted by Eila’s near death, soul-stealing guardian Raef, is now entirely obsessed with her safety. Eila, however, bristles at his babysitting and is determined to become a gifted fighter she was born to be. Raef, however, fears her bravery will get her killed. Soon, however, a heavily scarred man begins shadowing Eila and Raef, and the truth of who he is will change everything they’ve ever known about Eila’s infamous grandmother . . . and themselves.

REVIEW: I feel very privileged to have been chosen to receive an ARC of StormFront because KR Conway is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors to read. The way this author tells a story sucks you in to where you don’t want to put the book down – hanging on each word dying to know what will happen next. And let me tell you it is never what you think it will be. This is one author that you can’t “figure out” – you won’t know where the story is going until you get there, and when you get there it will be something you could have never imagined. Twists and turns don’t quite describe it.
Characters – wow what can I say – I love these characters from Eila right down to MJ’s mom and Mae. The characters in this book while fictional will completely remind you of the boy or girl down the street, someone’s mom you know, or even someone’s grandparent.
Without spoiling it for anyone, there is a particular scene in the book that is written with such class – details are not needed because the way this scene is portrayed is absolutely beautiful. I hope Ms. Conway knows the scene I am referring to because all I can say is Well done Ms. Conway, well done!
One of my favorite quotes of the book comes from MJ (a character that I absolutely adore) – “I’m going to refer to you as full-on chicken if you don’t stop stressing and get with the program.” This scene is one of my favorites in the book and had me laughing out loud for the majority of it.
What more can I say about this book – I laughed, I bit my fingernails with suspense, and I about jumped out of my chair at the ending. I can’t wait to keep on this journey to find out how this story turns out. YA or not this series and this author are one of my favorites.
I give StormFront 5 Stars and completely recommend this book, this series, and this author.
Do I recommend this book? Yes, Yes, Yes, and YES!
