Review: Writing this review leaves me feeling sad that my reading of Storm Unleashed is over. Out of the three installments, this one definitely rates the highest on reading immersion. Lexi embarks on her own adventure that helps her to understand the power of her love for Storm and his people. She is forced to choose between her own freedom and the freedom of someone she cares for deeply. Lexi's character development reaches an all-time high for me as she develops into a woman who fights for what she truly wants, including those who need her help. She now understands that she holds a lot of power and responsibility. Although I wish I would have read more about Storm throughout this installment, the ending is precious as he is reunited with Lexi and their love for one another fully blossoms. The plot of this book included a lot of twists and turns that had me constantly turning the page, wondering what was going to happen next. The level of adventure was definitely at its highest point in this installment. I enjoyed the writing of this book, however there were a few monumental moments when Lexi and Storm gave speeches to a large group of people. In those moments, the speeches fell somewhat flat for me. They were underdeveloped in regards to what was happening and where the characters were in their development. They just didn't seem to fit the timing. The editing of Storm Unleashed was somewhat disappointing as I purchased the published copy. There were a few typos that made me stumble as I was reading, but there were no tragic or heavily consistent errors that made it extremely difficult to read.
Recommendation: I definitely recommend this to those who have read the first two books. I also recommend this to anyone looking for a novel with a strong heroine, adventure filled plot, and touches of romance.
Book Description: "The magical world Lexi has come to know isn’t done with her yet, and she must discover the lengths she and Storm will go to prove their love and claim each other. Lexi has been kidnapped and transported to HyBrazil, where Storm’s evil brother reigns. He plans to make her his mate after he forces her to change. He has her locked in the tower until he breaks her. But Lexi never gives up and is always looking for a way to get back to Storm."
I am a lover of the written word. This is my space to pursue my love of reading through book reviews and literary discussions with my fellow readers.
