Where Did I Get It? I was kindly sent an ebook copy by the author in return for an honest review.
Blurb: Family. Lies. Lightning.
There are some things Evy can count on. Her lightning has never failed her. But she never asked why. She never asked where it came from or why it’s been so faithful. Before now… She never asked who was she without it.
With the people she can trust dwindling to a handful, Evy must again head into danger. This time, she’ll have Constantine at her side, and she’ll need him. But guiding a Roman warrior through his future brings a host of complications she didn’t plan for and with her sister missing, Evy can’t risk more unknowns. At least, not without another trip back to see her friend Nikola Tesla to uncover the real story of the Lightning Riders and the history of her mentors.
With Penya on the loose and Ilif’s lies too tangled with the truth, Evy must balance the knife’s edge of asking for help and believing people who want her power. The same ones willing to kill to get what they want.
Tiana never made it home.
My Review: Ah, Evy and Constantine, how happy I was to be reunited with you once more. I do love this series (read my reviews of book one and book two here) and I wasn’t let down by this third instalment at all.
As ever, Evy’s character develops through the story as she finds herself in new situations – this time around she has to learn to rein herself in and not just barge into everything feet first. The unexpected disappearance of her lightning forces Evy to do some soul-searching and she learns that sometimes she has to rely on other people to help her, even if she isn’t sure she can trust them.
There was more of the technical side of the time-travel aspect of the stories in Storm Front and that did take a bit of concentration to get into my head but it all made sense as you read on. I love this side of the books – it is refreshingly different and anything that involves Tesla is going to be a winner.
It wasn’t all intense soul-searching and time-travel shinnanigans, there were plenty of romantic interludes to stop everything from getting too much. Hardly surprising given Constantine’s existance – he is far too big, strong and handsome to ignore for too long!
I loved discovering more about the history of the Lightning Riders and a few of the twists were totally surprising in the best way – I love it when I don’t see things coming. Lots of questions from the previous books were answered and a few more new ones asked – I am hoping this means it wasn’t the last of Evy and Constantine’s stories and there are more to come in the future.
My only issue was that there seemed to be a few words missing scattered through the text but not enough to take me out of the story or disrupt my reading – they will probably be picked up in a future edition.
If you are a fan of steamy romance, Nikola Tesla, time-travel adventures, kick-ass female lead characters or fast-paced adventures then I seriously reccomend getting your hands on the Tesla’s Time Travelers series and giving them a go. They are one of my favourites.
My Rating: 5/5*
